Control the media and you control the narrative.
For years, liberals held sway over news the American people received, until FOX and conservative talk radio invaded their power base and busted their monopoly. Unable to vanquish their opposition and regain their totalitarianism, the mainstream media have let slowly slip the mask of impartiality.
At times they outright admit their bias (“You’re Goddamned right I ordered the Code Red!”), but for the most part they choose to ignore it, parading under a pretense of impartiality, like the Emperor and his new clothes. On any given night you can turn to CNN and see a panel of six guests comprised of two far left progressives, two garden variety liberals, one Stealth Democrat posing as a RINO and a lone conservative (for a network that claims to be against bullying they seem to have no problem with a five-against-one format.) And the lone conservative is often a woman (which party has a war on women?) Because a five-to-one advantage isn’t enough, the six guests are presided over by one of the ringmasters from CNN’s stable of liberal hosts (or does anyone believe that Cooper, Cuomo, Costello, Wolf or Lemon have ever voted for a single candidate with an R next to their name in their entire lives?)
But now, CNN and the rest of their ilk have a new ally in their struggle to manage the meme: Social Media, or to be more accurate as we’ve recently learned, Socialist Media.
In a not-so-stunning, and certainly not unsuspected turn of events, Facebook, Google and Twitter have all been outed as progressive proselytizers, part of the Global Gang (or is it Goebbels’ Gang?).
In the past two weeks alone we’ve seen:
FACEBOOK outed for suspending a “Transgenders for Trump” page (hyperlink #1, below)
GOOGLE caught manipulating search results to bury negative stories about Hillary Clinton (link #2)
TWITTER levying multiple suspensions on gay, conservative firebrand columnist Milo (link #3)
What prompted this open bias against Milo and Transgenders by Twitter and Facebook?
What was their sin – hate speech? Death threats?
Socialist Media is trying to silence them because they present a case for a Republican candidate in a world where the has been indoctrinated to vote for Democrats.
In short, they were suspended for encouraging independent thought, which is anathema to the political party dependent on Group Think.
Naturally, all three, Google, Facebook and Twitter have denied any bias.
Just like the networks used to.
Lest anyone think it’s a two-way street, where progressives face the same kind of filtering of free speech, consider this – if you’d like, you can go to Facebook’s “Donald Trump Sucks” page” where you can engage in insightful political discourse with your typical, anti-hate speech, safe-space-demanding leftist as they gather around (be warned the image is NSFW) pictures like this.
Or, if you prefer variety in your barbarism, you can go to Twitter and share your thoughts with followers of the religion of peace as they broadcast their desires to bomb, decapitate and sodomize Milo (Probably in reverse order of that. I think.)
As for Google, I can share a personal experience. Fed up with the hypocrisy of the left’s attacks on Trump for banning the Washington Post, I decided to present a counterpoint utilizing the three media outlets Obama banned towards the end of his initial campaign to fundamentally change the America his wife was so proud (not) of. I couldn’t recall who they were (it was the Dallas Morning News, the Washington Examiner and the NY Post) so I went to google and entered “media outlets banned by Obama.”
What did I get?
If you guessed page after page of articles attacking Trump for banning the Washington Post you are correct!
Serves me right for turning to Socialist Media when I needed facts.
