Life in the Cancel Culture
To appropriate an old phrase, I never thought I would see the day.
I never thought I would see the day that the tech giants of social media would shut down free speech in the United States of America. Thankfully the watchdog press and Congress are up in arms over this and are demanding accountability. Oh, that’s not what’s happening? They aren’t up in arms? Shut Up!!!!!
Big tech oligarchs isolated the President of the United States and cut him off from communicating freely with the American people thru social media and instead of officialdom being irate, they applaud or remain silent. Seemingly Big Tech isn’t worried about repercussions. If that doesn’t scare you, it should.
The 2020 election is one for the books. It was a whirlwind with COVID changing the rules of everything. President Trump held massive airport rallies while Biden/Harris had few appearances with few in attendance. On election night, the President built up comfortable leads in several key battleground states, and then for unknown reasons these states stopped counting votes only to start again in the wee hours of the morning. When we woke up those leads were gone as thousands of votes were added for Biden and only handfuls for Trump. The numbers were so overwhelming that experts said they were statistically impossible. In Georgia, hand counted military ballots went overwhelmingly to Biden; mail in ballots were found to have no folds, no record of postage. Video shows election workers feeding the same stack of ballots through a tabulator several times. Poll workers complained of voting irregularities and inability to effectively observe the process. Many people signed affidavits swearing under penalty of perjury to witnessing voter fraud. These witnesses were mocked and maligned. In Wayne County the Republican canvassers voted to not certify but were intimidated into changing their vote and so our state canvassers certified the vote in Michigan.
If the suspicions of fraud were false, if the voting machines were not corrupted, wouldn’t examination be welcomed to prove that all was well? If this election was as free, open, and honest as we have been told by officials and Joe Biden really did get more votes than Barack Obama, wouldn’t he be demanding it be proven? Instead of the light of day, there are threats from the Michigan Attorney General to investigate anyone who dares challenge the results. If that doesn’t worry you, it should.
January the 6th was the day that the Congress was to count the electoral votes to decide the presidency. Thousands and thousands of people made the trip to DC on their own dime and own time to show support for the president as Senators and Representatives determined how to proceed. Here was the opportunity to decide whether to hear evidence of voter fraud. The constitution says that the State Legislatures are the ones responsible for election law and they decide which set of electors to accept. The several states that sent two sets of electoral votes could potentially go back and decide which set of votes they want to submit.
Not so fast. On this day when every Congressman was in the Capital building, when hundreds of thousands of Trump supporters were in DC, when Antifa and BLM were at the ready, it seems security at the Capital would be rock solid. But it wasn’t. More and more information is being reported about who was at the Capital building, who scaled the walls and who brought tools to break windows. A few trained instigators know to how stir up a crowd. The purpose of the debate in Congress was effectively thwarted and the final vote was a forgone conclusion. Coincidence? You decide.
Several people died that day: a young woman shot, a policeman bludgeoned, a stroke, a heart attack, one person was crushed. All tragic. Also tragic is the fact that the integrity of the vote was forgotten as the focus shifted to condemnation. After downplaying rampaging destruction across America for months, euphemistically known as mostly peaceful protests, the media now focuses on the riot at the Capital and voter fraud is a phrase that can get you cancelled.
Joe Biden claims he ran for president because of Trumps remarks at Charlottesville, remarks which Trump didn’t make. Trump is accused of riling up this crowd with his speech; except he didn’t. The weather was cold; the speech was long as he reiterated examples of voter irregularities. Play the tape and see. That doesn’t stop people like Representative Hank Johnson from spreading lies. Maybe you remember Johnson as the man who feared Guam would tip over if too many Marines were stationed there. For some reason Johnson, representing DeKalb County, Georgia, was sure if the mob had gotten to the third floor he would have been swinging from the balcony like fruit on a tree. These people write our laws, and if that doesn’t scare you, it should.
From the party espousing a new spirit of unity, Senator Josh Hawley lost his book deal, Trump supporters on a plane chanting USA USA are threatened by the pilot with setting the plane down and going on without them, in another instance people were kicked off a plane before it even took off. A Forbes executive stated that unless Trump supporters repent of their sins of working for him, they’ll never work again. If this doesn’t scare you, it should.
