From Big Tech coordination to ESG, feds are finding back door for stomping on free speech

The media has largely ignored the story, but that is not a measure of its importance; in the 2020 election, we now know that the FBI and other agencies in the federal bureaucracy worked with Twitter to stifle and/or shutdown conservative speech and stories that would benefit Donald Trump in the 2020 election.

This is not hyperbole. It happened. When Elon Musk purchased Twitter, emails proving this happened were shared with the world. Though we haven’t seen the emails regarding the same kind of coordination with other social media sources, there is no reason to assume the same thing didn’t happen with Facebook, LinkedIn, Youtube and other social media sites. This is a big story! IT’S GIGANTIC!!!

What it means is, not just that the federal government interfered in the 2020 election but that they also found a backdoor to censor and stifle speech they didn’t like. They circumvented the right to free speech.

We have a constitutional right to free speech and people in the government know that. They couldn’t come right out and stop us from saying things they didn’t like or make us say things they do. So, they found another way to skin the cat.

By stealing the election (and don’t kid yourself – they DID steal the election as polls show that, without censorship of the Hunter Biden laptop story, Trump would have won in a landslide), they put themselves in a position to expand that backdoor to censorship.

Today, there is a tidal wave of censorship coming through that door.

The Left’s newest tool is ESG. The Biden administration is pushing ESG for all it’s worth. And ESG is why we have all these companies suddenly going WOKE. If they don’t go along, Blackrock will clamp down on funding they need to do business. It’s a chokehold Leftists in and out of the government have found and are gleefully implementing.

Today, it was reported that billionaire Mark Cuban said it makes good business sense for companies to go WOKE. What he really means is they can’t survive in the same world with ESG unless they go WOKE, and if that’s not what he means, he’s lying.

When the government looks the other way during rampant violence across the country (such as with the George Floyd riots of 2020), then condemns instances, such as the January 6 Riots, that pale by comparison, the government is sending a clear message about what speech is right or wrong; the government is claiming the one is covered by free speech, no matter how much violence, and the other is not.

At the same time, we have public schools – i.e., government schools – that are pushing the Left’s agenda with a passion. And what if parents don’t go along?

The National School Boards Association sent a letter to the DOJ asking that parents who come to school board meetings to raise concerns about the rabid Leftism in ‘teaching’ and curriculum should be labeled as “domestic terrorists.” In other words, keep your concerns to yourself or feds will get yeah, even if your concerns are for your child’s welfare.
