DHS To Try To Silence Americans, All In The Name Of Protecting The Truth.
Seeing how nations in Europe and other democratic states have seized power shut down the press, our government is unwilling to let them do this and not have a piece of the action themselves. We now have DHS (Department of Homeland Security) trying to seize this power for themselves, to be able to control all information and shut down anything that does not agree with their political worldview.
The Department of Homeland Security issued the following “National Terrorism Advisory System Bulletin” on 2/7/22:
Note some of the specific language used in this advisory: [emphasis added] “The United States remains in a heightened threat environment fueled by several factors, including an online environment filled with false or misleading narratives and conspiracy theories[Most of us just consider conspiracy theories to be spoiler alerts these days] and other forms of mis- dis- and mal-information (MDM) introduced and/or amplified by foreign and domestic threat actors. These threat actors seek to exacerbate societal friction to sow discord and undermine public trust in government institutions to encourage unrest, which could potentially inspire acts of violence … While the conditions underlying the heightened threat landscape have not significantly changed over the last year, the convergence of the following factors has increased the volatility, unpredictability, and complexity of the threat environment: (1) the proliferation of false or misleading narratives, which sow discord or undermine public trust in U.S. government institutions…”
The question to ask here is, whose false information? A great example is COVID; look at what would have had you blocked a year ago, then look today. If you had said in the early part of 2021 that vaccines would not protect you from catching covid, and if you were vaccinated you can still pass covid to others, you would have been silenced on social networks, the press and the government would have said you were spreading fake news. However, now this is acceptable, yet people were silenced, no one says anything about this, many still banned now for saying this exact thing, yet nothing is said.
The government is trying to say they are the gateway to the truth, but we have seen they are anything but a gateway; they are the controllers of information, be it true or false, this is a huge problem. We have free speech laws for a reason; it is not to give the government control over speech and information, they are set up to strip this control from the government, yet the Left is hell-bent on taking this back.
And don’t think that information on covid is the only thing that government and Left are trying to control, the idea that parents are challenging things like CRT, the truckers for freedom in Canada, this has left the Left terrified that they are no longer in control of the flow of information. Add to this alternate social network sites, sites that allow free movement of ideas; this is something they can’t abide.
We are now seeing this type of resistance, and the demand for more power as people around the world, in democratic nations, demand that these oppressive rules be undone; we are tired of living in the land of lockdowns.
This country is a representative republic. Never forget that. Do you know which other country “punishes” its citizens for speaking out against government propaganda? China. The communist ideals being brandished by Alejandro Mayorkas, head of Homeland Security, are simply unacceptable in our country and must be strongly rejected by all American citizens. If this Advisory is based upon the Patriot Act, then it is time to challenge the constitutionality of that law.
One last thought: Fascism occurs when government works with big corporations to restrict the freedoms of citizens. Due to the failure of the tactics of big tech and cancel culture to silence our conservative voices, the government had to step in a bit more obviously, with this Advisory, to help. Meaning Fascism has arrived in the United States with bells on! Does this situation sound familiar to anyone who knows history? Hint: think of Germany before the Holocaust.
As free people in all democratic nations, we need to stand up to this tell the government that our freedom means more than their moves to control. We need to look at others protesting this to do what is needed to help them. We need to stand up to the tyrants and say the control stops here.
