If Mark Zuckerberg, Jack Dorsey or Sundar Pichai don’t like your ideas, they won’t let others see them. That’s the truth. The MSM is supporting censorship of all who are to the right of CNN because it works for them right now. It’s very short-sighted, however. They will be next.
CNN PROMOTES CENSORSHIP TO ATTACK TRUMP
CNN’s Brian Stelter reacted furiously against President Trump for tweeting in support of right-wing commentators who have been banned by Facebook. Censorship is working for the leftists right now so they are pleased. They will one day rue the day.
Censorship will eventually affect everyone and what they are allowed to see or hear.
Are we really in support of tech giants deciding what political information we can be exposed to?
The fact is the President isn’t advocating for Infowars, as CNN has claimed, he’s promoting free speech.
Fake News CNN Applauds the Loss of Free Speech
CNN is the station where Don Lemon talks about the missing Indonesian plane disappearing into a black hole.
.@brianstelter: Trump’s furious reaction to Facebook’s ban of some high-profile users shows us that he is, I’m sorry to say, the Infowars president. He’s promoting the same alternative universe as Infowars and sharing videos from repugnant characters. https://t.co/LDDjK2BEcY pic.twitter.com/wpRVrfQvlR

Far-far-left Oliver Darcy attacked all the conservatives banned as radicals. Paul Joseph Watson was banned by Facebook and is not at all radical. He’s merely conservative. We don’t think Laura Loomer or Milo Yiannopoulos are radicals. One might criticize their dramatic tactics, but they stand up for free speech, Israel, non-radical topics.
Darcy, on the other hand, shouldn’t throw stones given the glass house he lives in.
Darcy frequently puts out dishonest articles claiming that conservative censorship is a fallacy. He accused the President of spreading fake news when he wasn’t.
Paul Joseph Watson?
Whats your definition of extremist?
Snoop Dogg just called on his 32M followers to flood FB and instagram with Farrakhan videos and said he will too. What would you say to Snoop?

Let Farrakhan Speak
CNN is a joke of a network and having them stand against free speech puts them in the category of activism and progressive commentary only. They can no longer be trusted in any way as a news organization.
While we’ve used Farrakhan as an example of a left-winger who doesn’t get banned for his anti-Semitism while non-violent right-wingers get censored, in the end, we don’t think Farrakhan should be banned either. Farrakhan is allowed to be a nasty anti-Semite. Let’s hear what this jerk Farrakhan is up to.
Free speech people!
The politically correct USA is an unpleasant and complicated place these days.
Look at CNN’s hatemonger, Navarro
Wrong. I don’t care if Right or Left, Farrakhan or Alex Jones. I applaud Facebook for banning ppl who violate policies by peddling hate, conspiracy theories & lies which trigger crazies & put ppl at risk. I’m not making it re ideology. U conveniently are. For me, it’s about hate. https://t.co/SGi6w5Dc62

Apparently Ana wants private companies to decide what we are allowed to see and read.
CNN Makes Up Stuff
Look at this nonsensical story CNN’s Cillizza came up with. It’s not based in any fact. CNN wants to get rid of anyone who might call them out. These nutjobs will be free to make up stories unfettered. Don’t shut them up, but let us contradict them.
Imagine this: Trump narrowly loses — by 20-ish electoral votes — in 2020. He refuses to concede, insists there has been widespread election fraud and notes that Democrats (and the media) have been trying to steal from him since he was elected in 2016.https://t.co/39KP0xgaRM

THEN THERE IS THE BANNING OF WORDS
Take this next story as an example of the stupidity of it all. Some advertisers don’t want their ads near certain words that are actually descriptors. Vice said the words describe their audience so they won’t blacklist them any longer.
Where and when will people draw the line? Free speech is being lost with all this PC nonsense.
Banning words is no different from banning books and from banning political opinions.
We will not blacklist these key words because they are general descriptions describing our talent, employees, audience, and customers. Our goal is to deliver on your #brand safety goals but in a way we are not creating bias.—@VICE #NewFronts @iab pic.twitter.com/ST5cLNgjlw

Get over yourself. You may be offended but free speech is worth it.
