What we are witnessing is something out of those radical 60's. It was that “new” Left that caught the establishments eye and took notice before Nixon was elected and before Woodstock was even an idea. It was that threat to the establishment that propelled those in power to take measures to curb their growing influence. Color, creed, veterans were no longer a divide. It was based on their unification of ideas. Ideas transcend all divisions. It shows up in the voter's booth. Hence now, the unification to Make America Great Again is a tent so unique and diverse it presents a similar threat to the establishment.
Blacks are starting to vote less Democratic.
Hispanics doubled their vote for a Republican President than they did in 2012.
Evangelicals and Christians strongly supported the MAGA movement
As did Independents
As did Libertarians
Even prominent gays are coming to the fold.
This coalition isn't the 40% you hear about on ‘the News’. It's everywhere in between coast to coast. When you present people with the issues it's not identity politics people identify with it's their country, their jobs, their security. This new loose collection of voters comprises the “new” Right. They don't show up in your polls and you cannot pigeonhole them anymore with usual terminology that divides and conquers. The game is changed. Ideas are starting to win again. And because of this its this “new” Right that is public enemy no. 1. We have seen many declassified operations over the years come to light, Operation Mockingbird comes to mind. But none were as frank and direct as the secret and now declassified FBI operation: COINTELPRO.
COINTELPRO was the catalyst to destroy the “new” Left. Without getting into the histrionics of its entirety, I will just cut right to the chase. This was from an FBI memo from 1968:
“Through counter-intelligence it should be possible to pinpoint potential trouble-makers and neutralize them…”
You can find those words show up here in the Rage Against The Machine song “Wake up” from their 1992 debut or maybe you remember it from the end of the first Matrix movie.
In 1976 the Select Committee to Study Governmental Operations with Respect to Intelligence Activities of the United States Senate findings:
“Many of the techniques used would be intolerable in a democratic society even if all of the targets had been involved in violent activity, but COINTELPRO went far beyond that ... the Bureau conducted a sophisticated vigilante operation aimed squarely at preventing the exercise of First Amendment rights of speech and association”
Any and all obstructions of the 1st Amendment are these most serious threats to our Republic. But curiously it's happening at an alarming rate to “new” Right voices. You don't need isolated examples as the examples are pretty direct and in your face. Look at your cell phones news content. Listen to educators who teach your children and their union overlords. Flip on your television. Go to Burger King and watch CNN. You're being inundated with propaganda 24/7 if you don't know any better. Now about targeting specific voices...
We have seen Milo being banned from Twitter for calling a Black lady “an ape”. Yes, that Milo, a gay-Jew who happens to be a Conservative. Mind you any child with a Twitter can view hardcore porn. Even known pedophiles aren't barred from Twitter. Weird huh? We have seen the riots take place banning him from speaking (mind you as an invited guest) at a very liberal college campus.
Speaking of a child, a few weeks ago we saw him lose his book deal because he talked about men being attracted to 13-year-old boys. Not him but men. Was he advocating it? I did not think so, neither am I. Was it out of line or not tasteful, yes no question. However, there is a push by some in the MSM over the last few years publicizing an advocacy for pedophilia while simultaneously and curiously aren't reporting on all these sex trafficking busts under Trump.
As far as that ape goes… Leslie Jones had a few things to say at her recent stand-up act…
"If I see another 45-year-old white woman from Williamsburg saying ‘black lives matter,' I'm going to punch you in the mouth. Stop doing that."
Are whites support welcomed or not? Can't keep track anymore. Depends on the day and the person I guess.
"I want to be in love. I want to do that, but it's 2017, and we got a pig in office. The world is about to end."
So, it's OK for her to call a White POTUS a “Pig” and her not be called an “Ape”. If we are getting into race territory a Black Ape is equal to a White Pig. Imagine if someone said the reverse while BO was in office? We would have riots in the streets.
Last year we had Gizmodo’s Michael Nunez break Facebook's not only bias but it’s outright thought control via its trending news team a team described as “a small group of young journalists, primarily educated at Ivy League or private East Coast universities, who curate the “trending” module on the upper-right-hand corner of the site”. And what about Google?
This isn't just here in the states either, recently Piers Morgan, an outspoken and unlikely supporter of Donald Trump was forced to step down as host of the Royal Television Society Awards, because of a campaign against him and his support for MAGA.
Gavin McInnes? Another “new” Right Conservative/Libertarian who supports Trump. He was assaulted and pepper sprayed for accepting an invitation to speak at NYU just a few weeks ago.
Now we have Tommy Sotomayor. He too, a “new” Right Conservative. A Black man who supports Trump and openly calls out Black hypocrisy. Now he might do it rather viciously but as Sotomayor says all the time “you play stupid games you win stupid prizes”. He was banned from Twitter last week.
This is a problem. This is targeted. That fact that we have this happening at the same time as seemingly uninformed “news” pieces coming from the establishment/legacy/authoritative/MSM media outlets is concerning. Whom seem to be in legion with one another. An entire media outlet, now the most influential medium now that Newspapers are dead is network news, Yet, a completely barren bench of Conservative voices or 90% of it anyway (hat tip to Bill O'Reilly).
This isn't hyperbole: free speech is dying. It is slipping away. It's been happening for a while but only the last few years has it become this obvious. Then we elected Trump and the media and the left are at DEFCON 5. Liberals are the PC champions; this erosion of the 1st is at their feet. Its their media, the traditional established/authoritarian/MSM media who is agenda/ratings driven is putting a megaphone to this nonsense.
All the while the Liberals are in self-destruct mode and embarrassingly racing one another to the furthest left trash heap fueled by identity politics and fringe social issues. It's the blind leading the blind and THEY’RE THOSE ONES DICTATING AND CONTROLLING OUR SOCIETY? Or maybe there is a bigger agenda here. Maybe the media and the liberals are pawns in a much bigger game? But that's another conversation for another day.
Unless you're advocating illegal violence, “hate” speech is still free speech. Regardless if you like it or not. Despite your sensibilities and fuck your feelings. Like the song says…WAKE UP!
