The left dropped the guillotine in a cultural coup d’état to shut down Donald Trump and his allies.
This assault on the Trump movement began with the President but quickly moved to other targets.
And now Tucker Carlson may lose his show for this terrifying reason.
The left has agitated for years to completely censor and criminalize conservative speech.
In the wake of the riot at Capitol Hill, tech CEOs and other liberal power centers saw their opportunity and jumped in for the kill.
Facebook and Twitter banned the President of the United States from their platforms.
An email service provider canceled the ability of the President’s campaign to send emails.
Shopify shut down the President’s online store banning Americans from buying the iconic “Make America Great Again” hat.
The attack was not limited to the President.
Publishing giant Simon and Schuster canceled Missouri Senator Josh Hawley’s book attacking Big Tech monopolies, falsely claiming Hawley exercising his constitutional prerogative to object to the results of Pennsylvania’s Electoral College results as inciting the riot.
Now Fox News is the target.
Tucker Carlson explained that the power brokers on the left waited for the low ebb of Donald Trump’s Presidency with his administration ending in less than two weeks and the Democrats seizing a majority in the Senate and thus control of both houses of Congress—meaning Republicans could not threaten Facebook or Twitter with subpoenas—to impose Communist Chinese-style censorship of their political opponents.
“Days after Donald Trump called for breaking up the Big Tech monopolies in order to preserve democracy, they have silenced him. Friday evening, Twitter announced that the sitting president had been banned from the platform that is his primary means of public communication. Of course, they waited until the Democratic Party took power to shut it down. Silicon Valley oligarchs are more powerful than the president of the United States, and they want you to known it,” Carlson began.
Now that the left decimated the ability of conservatives to oppose the left on social media, Carlson warned that left-wing activists at CNN were targeting Fox News and other conservative news networks by demanding cable companies drop them from their lineups.
“The assault on speech accelerates, and we at ’Tucker Carlson Tonight’ are not immune. Friday morning, CNN announced that it is working to force the Fox News Channel off the air and run this company out of business. A number of prominent Democrats, including officeholders, support that effort. CNN staffers have already contacted the six major cable carriers in this country, the companies that carry our signal into your home, and pressured them to drop Fox News,” Carlson added.
The left sees a senile Joe Biden in the White House as a rubber stamp for whatever his radical administration appointees and allies in Congress can pass.
They want to maximize their power and that means gutting the rights and liberties of their opponents.
And stage one of that plan is shutting down the ability of their opponents to communicate on social media and cable TV.
