How would you like it if there were a committee of people assembled in your town who got to decide whether or not you have free speech to participate in the public square? Or if you will be banned from access to the same resources everyone else communicates with?
Well, that is what Facebook is rolling out over whether Trump has free speech and access to the public square or not? Of course, in this case they decided that no, in fact, he does not. He shall remain banned and shunned like a leper, well, at least for six more months. What happens then? Maybe their “high Committee” will gather for another verdict.
If any of it sounds absurd, it should. What if you were treated the same way? All it takes is them declaring you a risk and unpalatable. Supposedly Zuckerberg went to the trouble of having this so-called independent committee decide Trump’s fate. But essentially, it could be our fate as well, and will be, since we can all be given the same ostracized treatment.
It comes down to their verdict of whether one’s speech is free speech or risky speech, or if their empowered committee cancels your participation rights or not? But never tell these arrogant lords of social media that their own right to exist or function is contingent on approval of some “mob” or “committee” — either one amounts to the same thing.
In the end, anything that may be a risk or threat to their power is branded an intolerable risk that cannot be allowed, because it threatens their habitat and power. Isn’t that what this is all about, their habitat and its preservation? They get to decide who is allowed into their ever-expansive habitat and who is not. But then they don’t live by their own rules, yet they hold the cancel button for everyone else in their hands.
In this hierarchy, there are no appeals or other arbiters, all decisions and cancellations are final. If the mob decides you should be deleted, you are. They control town square and those in it. Who made big-tech kings? I thought America did not accept such royalty.
Josh Hawley gave us a preview even before his book comes out. And now that it is coming out, despite their cancel attempts, the Left are even more enraged than before.
What else is new, we have a president whose Justice Department is targeting his political opponents. Rudy Giuliani is raided like some criminal. Notice how days after news came out about John Kerry collaborating and sharing classified intelligence with the Iranians, it is suddenly time to round up Rudy. Great diversion and defensive tactics. Do you think we’ll ever see John Kerry rounded up and raided for what he was doing for four years? Nah. Have you ever thought such things were possible in America?
That is the problem, it doesn’t feel like America with these things happening. This is not democracy or America; it is anti-American. And part of the country wants it that way.
