Censorship Abounds

A few days ago I posted a YouTube video of a priest, Fr. James Altman in LaCrosse, Wisconsin, standing up for the truth: declaring, in no uncertain terms, that you can’t be Catholic and be pro-abortion (https://leeduigon.com/2021/04/30/another-priest-stands-up-for-truth/).

Last night Dawn Renee wanted to see that video, only to find it had been taken down. Earlier this morning, Phoebe tried to comment on it, only to see her comment disappear instead of being posted. I found the comment in the spam folder, where it should not have been, and moved it to the post where it belongs.

I went back to YouTube and was surprised to find Father Altman’s videos still there. I will now pause in writing this to look again.

[Ten minutes later] Well, I can’t find that particular video on YouTube just now. But there are still some other Father Altman videos present in which he makes the point, “You cannot be Catholic and a Democrat. Period.” Like this one.

Let’s see how long this video stays here before someone removes it. Who? I don’t know. If somebody out there knows, please tell me. Why? I think because Big Tech is imposing a rigid censorship regime. How? I have no idea.

They think that by silencing us in the social media, they’ll stop us. Like, if we can’t say it, we won’t be able to think it. But we do say it, sunshine, and we do think it; and you are not fooling us. We see what you’re up to and we don’t like it!

O Lord our God! Give us the tools and weapons that we need to fight the ungodly and turn them back from their attempted conquest of the earth. Give us greater courage than theirs, greater endurance, greater strength, and greater intelligence than theirs. Confound them and defeat them: fight for us, O God. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

‘College vs. Free Speech’ (2017)

It’s getting smaller all the time

It’s been four years since I posted this, and our colleges and universities continue to undermine our country and wage war against our freedoms.

College vs. Free Speech

Honestly, we must be freakin’ suicidal, letting this go on and on–and paying for it, too! Paying colossal amounts of money! In addition to the harm Harvard does to souls and minds, it also sucks up more than 40 billion of our dollars every year. 

For which we get $40 billion worth of neo-Stalinist claptrap.

We have 24 comments here so far, by the way. Feel free to add more.

Good News! Poland to Fine Big Tech Censors

How about that? They did what they said they were going to do!

Poland now has a law against the social media censoring conservatives–they won’t be allowed “to remove content for political purposes” (https://www.foxnews.com/world/poland-fights-big-tech-push-block-social-media-censorship).

And if they do… the fine will be a whopping $13.5 million. For every offense.

Polish authorities cited Twitter’s ban of President Donald Trump as “a dangerous precedent.” Well, sure–if they can do it to the president of the United States, they can do it to anybody.

And how’s this for hypocrisy? In India, the Prime Minister threatened to ban Twitter unless they banned his critics! And so, of course, they did–500 of ’em.

This whole business of allowing “private corporations” to do things to people that government is not allowed to do–it’s fascism, and it has to stop. No more using banks and Big Tech to do the dirty work that Congress wouldn’t dare.

Once again, Poland is leading the way back to sanity. Hats off to Poland!

Are We Thailand?

Image result for images of abolition of free speech

Just this one brief reflection on politics, and that’ll be it for the day. The nooze will keep till tomorrow.

In 2016 the military junta running Thailand outlawed “rude opinions (https://www.reuters.com/article/uk-thailand-politics-idUKKCN0XU0PA?edition-redirect=uk). They also banned discussion of public controversies, spontaneous gatherings, and imposed up to ten years in jail for violating any of their little taboos. Five years later, the angry protests in the streets are still practically a daily occurrence.

Here in America, once upon a time the land of the free, assorted bigwigs are talking about censoring any criticism, any doubts, any fears of the new COVID vaccine. No discussion allowed. And I got an email from some fellow American hoping the FBI would arrest me for holding political opinions not shared by the Democrat Party and Mark Zuckerberg.

I keep wondering how we got here. What do you suppose Adlai Stevenson, John F. Kennedy, Harry Truman, or Hubert Humphrey would have said if you’d asked him, “Hey, bro, should people be arrested for saying rude things about the government?” But today’s Democrats want to jail you for saying you don’t believe in Man-Made Climate Change.

How did this happen? How did we wind up with multitudes of Americans clamoring for more censorship, for punishment for unpopular opinions, for more and more restraints on speech? Our colleges and universities are pushing this like their lives depended on it (and maybe they do–suck up to the government, to keep those public moneys pouring in).

Okay, sure–many years ago, you weren’t allowed to be a communist. Boo-hoo, how Hollywood suffered. But if that was so bad, liberals, why in the world do you want to bring it back? After all those years of lamenting McCarthyism, you want to bring it back? You want to expand its definition? Everyone who’s not you is an Enemy Of The State?

They will not rest until they abolish freedom altogether.

It’s what their master, Satan, wants from them.

They Mean to Eat Us Alive

Parler: Everything you need to know about the banned conservative social  media platform

Not so fast there, boyo…

The CEO of Apple this past weekend admitted that he and his Big Tech playmates silenced Parler because they didn’t like what people were posting on it (https://en-volve.com/2021/01/19/watch-apple-ceo-tim-cook-accidentally-reveals-collusion-between-big-tech-companies-to-censor-free-speech/).

CEO Tim Cook revealed Big Tech’s collusion against Parler, saying it was done because of “incitement concerns.” He didn’t bother to define “incitement.” It means anything they want it to mean. It means being out of step with Far Left Crazy.

“We don’t consider that free speech,” Cook said. Free speech is lib speech, no other kind.

So Parler barely got out of the starting gate before Big Tech shot it down. Too much free speech, don’t you know. We don’t want the proles questioning Mandates. “By Order of the Governor” means shut up and obey.

Our country has been conquered by an alliance between Big Tech and Dirty Politics.

What will happen when they find out they can’t trust each other?

‘Souping Up the Classics’ (2017)

See the source image

C’mon, now! They wouldn’t really rewrite all the classics. Would they?

Souping Up the Classics

You may want to read the article linked to by Linda in the comments section: Wall High School, New Jersey, edited all references of President Donald Trump out of the school’s 2017 yearbook. No one took responsibility for this act of censorship, although the school principal denied having anything to do with it.

Incredible as it seems, there are still people out there who do not know that Leftism = No More Freedom. Unless they think it’s only other people’s freedom that’s going to disappear, never their own.

That’s what Zinoviev and Kamenev thought right up until the moment Stalin had them shot.

The Truth Is Not in Them

Do Atheists Simply Repress Their Knowledge of God? : Strange Notions

Here it is, only halfway through the morning, and I’ve already learned two new things!

One. There’s no such thing as organized pedophilia, or pedophile rings. Why, that’s just a cwazy wepublican conspiracy theory! And to say that President Trump is an intelligent man who’s trying to stop worldwide sex trafficking–well, that’s just crazy, too. Dammit! The social media shoulda started censoring all this stuff years ago, before it got so big. Maybe they were too busy trying to stamp out Climbit Change Denial.

Two. There is no “liberal fascism” anywhere, and certainly, certainly not in college! Our universities are temples of free speech. (Good grief–there are people who actually believe that?) They never, never, never punish students for taking a dissenting view of anything! And so what if some 90% of the teaching staff is left-wing? So is all the rest of America! Really! People just aren’t conservatives!

Which leads me to another blog post altogether…
