Dem: Government To Decide Which Opinions Are Legal, Which Are Not
Everyday when I sit down at this computer I can’t help but stop to think … how the heck did we end up here? I know that all good things must come to an end, and there is no place this is more true than in the case of governments. However, it just feels like things have escalated so quickly here.
It feels like months ago that we were celebrating the biggest upset in the history of American politics. President Trump signaled to the American people that it was possible for ‘one of us’ (and by that I mean someone not from the ‘elite’ or political/lawyer class) to gain control of the reins of the nation.
It did not take long to find out that winning an election and gaining control of the government were two separate thing.
Yes, Trump did a lot of great things, especially right out of the box, however, I think we can all agree that it feel like the entire federal government was working to sabotage him (and thus us, the people of America) at every turn.
Social media transformed from a forum from freedom of expression to a gulag, where leftist ‘fact checkers’ determined who could talk, and what they could say. To this day only certain opinions are welcome on social media.
I know we all joked that this power made the government jealous, but how many of us really thought that the feds would actually try to dismantle the 1st Amendment and take the same tact as Silicon Valley’s Speech Cartel.
While the Dems have beaten around the bush concerning this type of Orwellian speech police implementation, leave it to a millennial ‘law maker’ to actually have to guts to go full Stalin and suggest it become law.
Cassandra Fairbanks of The Gateway Pundit broke down the interview:
‘During an appearance on CNN’s “Reliable Sources,” Rep. Jacobs was asked about her previous calls for a “Truth Commission” and what that meant.
“Lots of countries, lots of places have ideologies that are extreme, people who have ideologies that are extreme have conflict, have disagreements within their community,” Jacobs explained. “But there are only some areas where that actually turns into violence, and that’s the role of conflict entrepreneurs — or in other words, leaders.”
“Do you think the House and Senate leadership have the stomach for that?” Stelter asked.
“I think so. Look, we all were victims of this attack in addition to being the lawmakers of this country,” Jacobs said. “This is very personal … I think there are a lot of us who know that this impeachment trial was just the start of holding Donald Trump accountable.”
The 32-year-old representative said that leaders could use “the enabling environment of our media ecosystem” to establish a narrative.
“In the case of the United States, it’s about a ‘whitelash,’ a white Christian America reaction, backlash, to a changing, country personified by Trump,” Stelter said.
“Part of what we’re seeing now is because we haven’t really done the reckoning with the racial injustice and white supremacy of our past that we need to do,” Jacobs said. “A truth commission, a lot of people will think of South Africa … It’s communities all the way up to the national level having conversations about both the gory and the glory of our history and what happened, both throughout the history of our country and leading up to and on January 6, so that we can come to a common narrative, moving forward, of what we want our country to be.”

How long do you think it is going to be before they shut down your ability to read these articles?
How much longer do you think until they shut down our ability to own a website?
The real question is when will they come for those of us who refuse to drink the Kool-aid? I’ve seen this movie before and I am well aware that it ends with cattle cars full of dehumanized people …
