These are dark days. Anyone who has watched the deranged #ClimateCult try to silence debate and remove dissent from their orthodoxy from the public sphere saw this coming. These cultists are dangerous to everyone because Authoritarianism grows only from the darkness of silence. The only solution to evil is more speech not less speech. The utter abhorrent evil that arose in Germany and Russia did not rise in a vacuum, instead being courted by so called journalists who lavished praise. God I fucking hate the left for the authoritarian ghouls they have become and thank the heavens that the Climate Cult is what opened my eyes to this evil where truth no longer matters but only how the ideology is served even if it is an anathema to the truth.
[T]he pathologies, illiberalism, and repressive mentality that led to the bizarre spectacle of my being censored by my own media outlet are ones that are by no means unique to The Intercept. These are the viruses that have contaminated virtually every mainstream center-left political organization, academic institution, and newsroom. I began writing about politics fifteen years ago with the goal of combatting media propaganda and repression, and — regardless of the risks involved — simply cannot accept any situation, no matter how secure or lucrative, that forces me to submit my journalism and right of free expression to its suffocating constraints and dogmatic dictates.
The seeds for the mass censorship we see today were sown many years ago, however, it’s been quite unnerving how fast the new normal has set in with the gullible legions of Ken and Karen enforcers gobbling up every bit of #FakeNews – even if it directly contradicts yesterday’s news.
I don’t think I’ve ever seen Tim – who is about as middle of the road as you get – this worked up before, but he’s right. This sets a very bad precident, no matter what side of the political aisle you are. We live in very strange and absurd darkened times.
In the Democrats impeachment report they published private phone records for their chief political opponent in the impeachment inquiry Devin Nunes and a private American journalist John Solomon.
The impeachment inquiry in Trump is failing and Adam Schiff has become so desperate that he has resorted to somehow obtaining private phone details for his rivals and an American journalist. In response a media that loves to bend over backwards for Democrats pushes the narrative that Schiff asks for. That the journalist is corrupt and lying for Trump and that Nunes was involved in the Ukraine Scandal with Trump.
Devin Nunes has launched a 435$ Million suit against CNN for publishing a false story that he met with Ukrainian Prosecutor Viktor Shokin. Nunes published photos showing him in other countries including Malta.
Media companies have continually hired former intelligence officials and even Democratic operatives. Their allies in media know exactly what to say and how to say it.
Impeachment backfired on Democrats so now they are pulling out all the stops to spin absurd stories smearing republicans and journalists. This shows us a dark future as norms and rights are being violated in the name of political power.
