Donald Trump sidestepped legacy media outlets in 2016 by using his Twitter account.
The Left have been attempting to fix that “loophole” ever since.
Randi Weingarten and Silicon Valley speech goons have one bone-chilling plan in advance of the Midterms.
Donald Trump broke the matrix when he won in 2016.
The establishment lost control of the narrative, and Trump broke through.
Since then, the Left have come up with various pretenses to censor speech online.
First, combating “hate speech” was used as a justification to shut people up.
Now they are claiming that “misinformation” must be censored, and they are the ones who get to decide what is misinformation and what is not.
And teachers are banding together to steer their students in the “correct” direction with regard to the information they consume online.
In effect, Democrats and Silicon Valley are enlisting teachers to help censor so-called “misinformation” shared online.
The New York Times reported that “with young people spending more time online, where misleading and false narratives swirl around the upcoming midterm elections, the Covid-19 pandemic and other topics, educators are increasingly trying to offer protection.”
Of course, The Times pushed plenty of disinformation about COVID.
For example, The Times deemed it racist to suggest that COVID emerged from a lab in Wuhan.
The Times also claimed that the Hunter Biden laptop was Russian disinformation; the paper only admitted its mistake a year and a half later.
The Times added that “several educational groups representing more than 350,000 teachers in math, social studies and other disciplines created an alliance to better support those trying to teach media literacy. One of the founding groups, the National Association for Media Literacy Education, said its own membership had more than doubled in the past five years…One global study this summer found that nearly half of young adults shared misinformation because they thought it was true, while a third did so impulsively. Many said they were too busy to verify the information or felt pressure to weigh in on a current event, according to the research, which was led by the Poynter Institute for Media Studies.”
It’s ironic that The New York Times, which routinely publishes misinformation, would cite the Poynter Institute, which is an organization that funds the left-wing fact-checking site Politifact.
The establishment is doing everything it can to reclaim control of the narrative.
It’s too dangerous to have people thinking for themselves and encountering opposing viewpoints.
