Democrats have a huge problem on their hands.
Their media monopoly is crumbling, and they’ve lost control of the narrative.
Now Democrats are pushing to silence anyone who speaks the truth on one issue.
It’s a frightening reality that leftists are making the term “Orwellian” commonplace.
With each passing day, the left is attempting to wrest more freedom from the hands of individuals.
On a fundamental level, they don’t believe people should be free.
They believe the well-being of the collective supersedes the rights of the individual.
For that reason, they have to use massive amounts of propaganda to steer people toward giving up their constitutional freedoms.
One of the key issues for the left is climate change.
If they can convince people to buy into the climate hysteria, that we only have 12 years left before it’s too late, then they can seize control of vast sectors of the U.S. economy.
That’s why Democrats are coming down hard on anyone who pokes holes in the climate hysteria campaign.
The U.S. House Select Committee on Climate Crisis sent a letter to Google CEO Sundar Pichai to urge YouTube—which is owned by Google—to censor videos that contain “climate misinformation.”
What these climate zealots deem misinformation is anyone’s guess, but it’s undoubtedly anything outside their climate orthodoxy.
Conversely, they wouldn’t consider it misinformation to claim that the planet will be irrevocably destroyed if all the nations of the world don’t cease fossil fuel use immediately.
The select committee also wants YouTube to demonetize videos that spread “false” climate information.
They also want YouTube to reeducate people taking steps to “correct the record” on climate change.
This is fascist and creepy and indicative of the left’s entire mindset.
And this type of hysteria has been mainstreamed.
These aren’t a dozen loons in a cramped room at a rec center.
These are members of the United States House of Representatives, which gives a stamp of authority to this collective madness.
If the left wants to change people’s minds on the climate or any other issue, they should make the argument.
But they’ve given up on that tactic long ago.
Instead, they’ve opted for authoritarian censorship.
And in an ironic twist, they’re calling for international corporations to do their bidding.
Leftist hysteria has reached a fever pitch with the promotion of climate change mascot Greta Thunberg, who’s being used as a shield by global elites to scare and shame citizens into giving away their rights.
The environmentalist movement has been terrible in its catastrophic predictions. By their own standards, the climate change zealots should be labeled as misinformation.
That’s what their track record suggests.
These attempts at censorship won’t stop.
Every time the left claims a digital scalp, they get bolder.
The only way to stop it is to stand up to the censors when they come to take someone’s free speech.
A handful of accounts have been restored when enough supporters make a big enough stink.
It’s going to take a lot of effort, because for many leftists, climate change hysteria is their brass ring.
