The corporate-controlled press has gone off the deep end since Donald Trump left office.
Many thought the Left would simmer down with Trump gone, but the opposite has happened.
Now CNN is pushing for a huge crackdown on free speech.
Donald Trump was banned from all the major social media outlets, and with the exception of a few principled liberals, everybody on the Left cheered.
Facebook empaneled a private “Supreme Court” to determine if Trump should be allowed back on the platform, and CNN’s Alisyn Camerota was vehemently against the idea.
During a panel discussion, she said, “President Trump’s lies led to a bloody, deadly insurrection. Why would they ever let him back on to peddle more of the crap?”
There’s so much propaganda in that statement.
The corporate-controlled press continues to call the Capitol Hill riot “insurrection” even though the building was cleared out in less than an hour – it was an ugly incident, but the melodramatic take that the country was moments away from losing its democracy is absurd.
Also, Trump implored his audience to protest “peacefully and patriotically.”
Meanwhile, fringe rioters stormed the building while Trump was speaking, and the attack had largely been planned on Facebook in advance of Trump’s address.
Unsurprisingly, Facebook’s self-proclaimed “Supreme Court” – which was comprised of left-wing activists, journalists, and Obama staffers – voted to uphold Trump’s suspension from the platform.
However, the board did condemn Facebook’s arbitrary rules.
The board said in a statement:
“The Board has upheld Facebook’s decision on January 7, 2021, to restrict then-President Donald Trump’s access to posting content on his Facebook page and Instagram account.
However, it was not appropriate for Facebook to impose the indeterminate and standardless penalty of indefinite suspension . . . The Board insists that Facebook review this matter to determine and justify a proportionate response that is consistent with the rules that are applied to other users of its platform. Facebook must complete its review of this matter within six months of the date of this decision.”
Since the 2020 election, CNN and other so-called “mainstream” media outlets have been evangelizing against free speech.
There have been open calls to take Fox News off the air, create truth and reconciliation commissions, and ratchet up online censorship.
The Democrats and the corporate-controlled press have lost the argument, so they’ve settled on silencing opposition.
