As the 2020 presidential campaign heats up, here’s a reminder for all deplorables: Be sure to check your spam folder carefully every day to ensure that you’re not missing important conservative news.
Representatives from social media companies are set to appear before Congress this week to be questioned about supposed Russian interference in our elections and, more importantly, about their censorship of conservative speech here in the U.S. (and probably elsewhere, too).
David Horowitz @horowitz39
Recently, David Horowitz got up-close-and-personal evidence of just how true his statement was. The progressive ideological pogrom against conservative speech continues apace.
Yesterday, President Donald J. Trump finally had a private meeting with the president of Russia, Vladimir Putin, and the Democrats, the radical left, the anti-Trump RINOs and GOPe, and (most especially) Obama’s “intelligence community” lost their collective minds, accusing the president of “high crimes and misdemeanors” as well as treason–all for exercising one of the most basic and important Constitutional charges given to the president by We the People, who elected him!
Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg is testifying before Congress this week. Millions of people around the world are interested in what he has to say. The stakes are high for Facebook as well as for our Republic. Censorship and regulation are double-edged swords. We’ve seen how the mainstream media “serves” the public, especially when there’s no competition. If social media end up self-regulating, then they will become just another echo chamber for the left.
Despite that it’s commonly believed that the Internet facilitates free speech, a new study indicates that on social media people tend to not speak out if they believe that their views are unpopular or if they perceive that they may be negatively criticized for expressing their heart-felt opinions. The authors explain that it’s long been known that people self-censor in face-to-face interactions:
A major insight into human behavior from pre-internet era studies of communication is the tendency of people not to speak up about policy issues in public—or among their family, friends, and work colleagues—when they believe their own point of view is not widely shared. This tendency is called the “spiral of silence.”
Some social media creators and supporters have hoped that social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter might produce different enough discussion venues that those with minority views might feel freer to express their opinions, thus broadening public discourse and adding new perspectives to everyday discussion of political issues.
And now an important announcement from Facebook. Gender is a “spectrum,” and so, to accommodate this new reality, a Facebook user can now choose a gender for his or her (or them’s?) Facebook profile other than one of the (bigoted) two “genders” that were “assigned to” the individual at birth. Isn’t that special?
Who was the Assigner, by the way? Is that an inadvertent acknowledgement of The Creator? The Ultimate Umpire?
