The Extinction of Free Speech

As a child, I recall reading a book about a future dystopian society that burned books to control the thoughts of their subjects…the book was Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury. The premise of the book was taken from the Nazi book burning carried out by the German Student Union targeting books they thought subversive and anti-Nazi.

Today, in America we virtually have the same thing going on as Facebook, Twitter and other social media platforms systematically burn digital books by banning and remove posts that give opposing viewpoint to the agenda put forth by the liberal establishment…

One recent example is when Donald Trump Jr tweeted a videos showing several well known doctors talking about the effectiveness of hydroxychloroquine against Covid 19, Twitter pulled the tweet saying Trump was spreading misleading information regarding Covid 19 (I guess Twitter are the medical experts, and not the several doctors in the tweet that was pulled) and he was suspended from further tweets. Fast forward two months and CNN tweeted a story about a recent study showing the effectiveness of hydroxychloroquine against Covid 19. Why isn’t this tweet removed? It is because CNN is “an approved source”, and other that have dissenting opinions are censored.

Here is a quote from a leading surgeon and twenty-five year veteran of the medical field. “Hydroxychloroquine is a derivative of quinine, which is found in tree bark. It’s the most noncontroversial of medications that there is,” she said. “It’s been around for centuries and it’s been FDA-approved in the modern version, called hydroxychloroquine, for 65 years,” she continued. “In all of that time, [doctors] used it for breast-feeding women, pregnant women, elderly, children, and immune compromised. The typical use is for years or even decades because we give it mostly to RA, rheumatoid arthritis patients and lupus patients who need to be on it, essentially, all of their life. So, we have extensive experience with it … it’s one of the most commonly used medications throughout the world.” this statement of hers, as well as others doctors who made similar statements about this drug that has shown to be effective against this virus last week was blocked and removed by Facebook, Twitter and Youtube with no explanation.

Censorship similar to this has been going on in our public universities (indoctrination camps, paid for by your tax dollars) for three decades now where Christian and conservative speakers have time after time, increasingly been denied an opportunity to provide a different viewpoint and the constitutionally provided first amendment has been trampled time and again (sometimes literally). The young adults exposed to this censorship have been indoctrinated that dissenting opinions are bad and preventing alternate ideas and opinions is perfectly fine in America, where free speech once roamed free, but is now being hunted to extinction There are many, many more examples all over the internet of this rabid censorship going on under our noses.

Welcome to the Socialistic States of America, comrade!
