The Left Is Systematically Tearing Down Conservative Based News Sources

When will those of you who rely on conservative news stand up and fight back to defend the first amendment? We all lose here.

Published

I hate to admit it, but Alex Jones called it.

Now, don’t get me wrong:  I am in no way endorsing every crackpot theory that the controversial pundit has laid out over the course of his career.  In fact, I probably ignore 90% of what Jones says, but when it comes to the War on Information, he seems as prescient and alert as ever.  Jones even named him entire media company InfoWars, as if to prove the point.

You see, Jones is on the receiving end of a blackballing the likes of which America never believed that they would see.  It’s a woeful misinterpretation of the First Amendment that got us here, with megalithic online corporations acting as the gatekeepers of world of digital information.  In this struggle, Jones has been banned from nearly every major platform in existence, including PayPal.

Now, as if to prove the point that Jones himself was making about the guardians of knowledge and the virtual book-burning of the liberal left, Wikipedia will no longer accept InfoWars or Breitbart as sources of information.

Wikipedia editors voted to ban Breitbart as a source of fact in it articles. The consensus, reached late last month, agreed that the outlet “should not be used, ever, as a reference for facts, due to its unreliability.” Wikipedia editors also decided that InfoWars is a “conspiracy theorist and fake news website,” and that the “use of InfoWars as a reference should be generally prohibited.

Breitbart, a far-right conservative media website, has come under scrutiny—such as when it vehemently supported Alabama politician and alleged pedophile Roy Moore, when it shilled for scam cryptocurrencies through its newsletter, or when it fueled racist narratives about black NFL players. Wikipedians decided that because fact checkers have found much of Breitbart’s coverage to be “misleading, false or both,” they won’t abide it as a source of fact anymore.

This is absolutely a tactic that has been used repeatedly by fascist regimes in the past, and should be alarming to any American worth their weight in freedom.

While Infowars is often on the fringes of the media landscape, Breitbart has become the de facto voice for patriotic Americans who turn away from the mainstream, corporately controlled media.  By eliminating the avenues from which these ideologies can spread, Wikipedia is doing nothing less than jeopardizing the very future of liberty in our nation.

Beto Turns Conspiracy Theorist When Asked About Validity of 2016 Election

Get out your tinfoil hats!

Published

conspiracy tinfoil

When you look around the internet today, there is one group of online rabble rousers who are being stamped out at an alarming rate:  Conspiracy theorists. While many of these self-proclaimed “researchers” and “journalists” are truly incorrigible, (such as nutcase Alex Jones), the underlying fact remains that taking away their right to speak their minds in the internet’s public square is wholly un-American. Remember always:  Sunlight is the best disinfectant, and forcing these dangerous ideas back underground is a surefire way to be blindsided by them when they rise again in a new, never-before-seen form. The evils of censorship aside, there is another alarming trend within this trend, however.  It seems as though only certain conspiracy theories are now considered taboo…namely those emanating from the right side of the aisle. For instance, when Beto O’Rourke tells an audience that he’s not sure how legitimate the 2016 election was, that’s just fine. While appearing on MSNBC’s AM Joy, O’Rourke dropped a bombshell opinion of his. After referencing the Russian breach of the voting systems in two counties in Florida, host Joy Reid asked, “Do you have confidence that the 2016 election was not impacted in terms of, not just the use of propaganda on American voters, but literally that the electoral systems weren’t breached and that Donald Trump was elected fairly?” O’Rourke answered, “I don’t have complete confidence. In part because of what you just shared about Florida, in part because we know from other secretaries of state in other states in the union that their systems were breached. We don’t know if vote tallies were changed, but that alone should be cause for concern.” Of course, several lengthy and in-depth investigations into this very possibility have been conducted, including the 22-month long, $30 million probe helmed by Robert Mueller. None of these…

TOLERANT LEFT: Author Asks if Saudi Arabia Could Give Trump the Khashoggi Treatment

More violent dog whistles from the radical left are emerging as Washington’s dysfunction approaches critical mass.

Fran Lebowitz

For as tolerant as the liberal left claims to be, they sure do want a lot of harm to come to the President and the republican party. This “resistance” attitude is something straight out of Hollywood, which makes sense since much of this violent and anti-American rhetoric is being spurned on by wealthy celebrities who have not a care in the world. Just two weeks after Kathy Griffin posted an incredibly gory image of herself having figuratively beheaded a facsimile of the President, a former Bernie Sanders campaign staffer attempted to assassinate the entire GOP charity baseball team. We must always remember that there are consequences for these sorts of political outbursts, particularly at a time in which our nation is so divided. So why on earth would author Fran Lebowtiz suggest that the President be killed on a public forum such as HBO’s Real Time with Bill Maher? Lebowtiz began her rant by saying that “impeachment would be just the beginning of what [President Trump] deserves”. She added, “Whenever I think about this and what he really deserves, I think, we should turn him over to the Saudis, his buddies. The same Saudis who got rid of that reporter. Maybe they could do the same for him.” It took until the main program had ended for Lebowitz to backtrack, likely fearing an ugly visit from the Secret Service. Later, during the “Overtime” segment, Lebowitz said, “I didn’t realize that I said it. … I regret saying it.” She added, “I did not mean that, and I regret saying it. I regret that everyone misinterpreted it…they misinterpret everything. Why should they stop with me?” Sorry Fran – there’s nothing to misinterpret here. Also, as an author, the idea that Lebowitz somehow wasn’t calculating the words that she was using is absurd…
