Don’t expect Democrats and their Big Tech allies to do anything the next two years to unite the country or improve the lives of Americans. It will be all about consolidating power and eliminating competition. For starters, they want to outlaw political assembly, keep people at home (using Covid as justification), and cut off any kind of social media communication (as they’ve done with account purges and Parler bans). After conservatives and libertarians find ways around their latest anti-free speech moves, I expect them to try one final step. Although I don’t expect them to succeed at this, many will consider it clear cause for a Civil War, and that is to use browsers & internet service providers to block websites. In other words, Chrome, Safari, Firefox, Edge, AT&T, Verizon, Spectrum, Comcast, etc. will team up to block any websites or communication they deem undesirable. They’re private companies, with protections like Section 230, so there’s nothing to stop them. And as long as Democrats are in charge, they will fully support this or anything else that helps them enhance their one-party rule. Our Constitution is already teetering on the edge of existence. If they succeed in these final steps I’ve described, you can officially write the epitaph: United States (1776-2021). In the past I’ve often rolled my eyes when people compared the American Ruling Class to ****s, Stalinists, or other totalitarian governments. I’ve always felt it was a gross exaggeration that diminished the citizens who really did suffer under these regimes. No more. Short of extermination camps, we have become the modern day equivalent of everything represented by these terrible societies. All of our free speech and other civil liberties are systematically being stripped away. All of the institutions of influence–mainstream media, Hollywood, Big Tech, education, TV, social media, etc.–have been taken over by Deep State socialists. Our only remaining outlet for correcting wrongs–elections–have become ridiculously corrupted, and simply discussing election irregularities is now deemed “inciting violence,” leading to complete bans from social media. And to complete the totalitarian repertoire, the Ruling Class is demonizing and attacking an entire class of people–Trump supporters & American patriots. Is it any wonder anger has boiled to a level not seen since 1861?!
How hilarious... the Party of 'personal responsibility' wants not one part of being held responsible.
You can't make this stuff up. She thinks one tweet got Trump's account banned.. and has no clue about the real world. Welcome to the attempt at a thought, by a Republican.
You know when someone starts screaming about "the Deep State"... they belong in a padded room with plenty of observation.
