CNN continues to escalate its war on Donald Trump.
And they may have identified a secret weapon to secure their ultimate triumph.
That’s because CNN scored a major victory that is seriously bad news for Donald Trump in 2020.
Ever since Trump won the 2016 election, CNN blamed the fact that alternative media sources accessed social media to spread news that contradicted the fake news from CNN and other Democrat Party affiliated media outlets tried to use that to tip the election to Hillary Clinton.
CNN developed a new strategy to make sure nothing like 2016 was ever allowed to happen again.
They began badgering tech companies with “reports” about how pro-Trump figures used social media to spread “misinformation” and “hate speech.”
CNN identified the weak link in America’s marketplace of ideas – the fact that social media company CEO’s were devoted leftists who could be shamed for supposedly playing a role in President Trump’s victory.
Tech companies responded by “deplatforming” pro-Trump media figures use of vague “hate speech” guidelines.
Facebook launched the latest offensive in CNN’s war on free speech when the company announced they were banning pro-Trump radio host Alex Jones and Infowars correspondent Paul Joseph Watson from their platform because they held “dangerous” political views.
President Trump noticed that left-leaning social media companies were colluding with the Democrats and their partners in the media to censor the flow of news in America and called them out on Twitter.
“I am continuing to monitor the censorship of AMERICAN CITIZENS on social media platforms. This is the United States of America — and we have what’s known as FREEDOM OF SPEECH! We are monitoring and watching, closely!!” President Trump continued. “So surprised to see Conservative thinkers like James Woods banned from Twitter, and Paul Watson banned from Facebook!”
The President also retweeted videos from Watson expressing outrage over social media companies acting on behalf of the Democrats to silence the voices of Trump supporters as well as a video from Infowars highlighting black Trump voters.
So great to watch this! https://t.co/pYoiLjM0pz

Or giving a handful of giant partisan corporations the power to decide who has free speech?

This outraged CNN media reporter Oliver Darcy.
Critics accuse Darcy of acting as the social media Gestapo by using his perch at CNN to pressure tech companies to restrict voices that CNN disagrees with politically.
Appearing on CNN’s misnamed “Reliable Sources” program Darcy ranted about how President Trump gave Infowars a platform on Twitter despite the fact that the company issued Alex Jones and the site a permanent ban.
“What is the difference at this point between Trump’s Twitter feed and Inforwars.com? Infowars might have been banned from Twitter, but it seems to have found a new home over at Trump’s Twitter feed,” Darcy whined.
“While he’s promoting and legitimizing this news organization we should also talk about how he’s trying to tear down credible sources for news, The Washington Post, The New York Times, CNN. He was questioning why these news organizations have the ability to be on Twitter while saying that Infowars should be reinstated. It’s nuts,” Darcy concluded.
What Darcy meant was that only news organizations that align with CNN’s politics should be allowed to speak in America.
CNN ramped up their pressure campaigns because they want to do their part to help the Democrats win the 2020 election.
Their operating theory is that if social media companies manage the flow of information so only anti-Trump news outlets can spread their content then the Democrat nominee will defeat Donald Trump.
Because social media companies are private entities they are not bound by the First Amendment and they ban who they want.
But many Americans believe that social media companies are the public square and that the regime of corporate censorship that CNN wants to unleash on America is fascism.
Do you agree?
