‘California Free Speech-Killing Bill: On Hold for Now’ (2018)

See the source image

“And suddenly it hit me! If you can go to jail just for being wrong, I’d be the only one left outside…”

Remember this? California was going to make “fake news” against the law! Yup, a felony, punishable by prison time. No more “misinformation” allowed! It would have also been against the law to be wrong. Good thing that never happens to 100% Democrat lamestream nooze!

California Free Speech Killing Bill: On Hold for Now

Of course, they, the government, would decide what was true and what was “misinformation.” They were especially interested in stamping out “vaccine skepticism”–two years before anybody heard of COVID.

But then a funny thing happened. Gov. Jerry “Moonbeam” Brown vetoed the legislation, saying it was “not necessary.” Musta been too Far Left even more him. Who would’ve ever believed that was possible?

‘The University: Where Young Minds Go to Die’ (2015)

Do I hear a micro-aggression?

When I was in freshman orientation for college in 1971, the theme was “dissent”–for its own sake, as an end in itself, as the highest social good, as a moral imperative, blah-blah (I’ll have to write more about this later).

Now there’s no dissent allowed.

The University: Where Young Minds Go to Die

I should point out that by “dissent” they meant agreeing with left-wing professors.

Someday posterity (if there is any posterity will remember us as the society that “educated” itself to death.

Are We in North Korea?

North Korea to cut communication lines with the South - UPI.com

Throughout the ten-year history of this blog, we’ve picked up a couple of new followers every week. That’s how we wound up with 1,700 of them.

But in the past several weeks, no new followers at all. Not even one.

What happens if you try to follow me? Do they tell you they’ve made the connection for you–only it doesn’t show up at my end? Is Big Tech trying to cut off our communication with each other? Go ahead, tell me that would astonish you.

It’s like we just woke up in North Korea.

I wish a few of you would help me in an experiment. Just click whatever you need to click to follow this blog, and let’s see what happens. And please tell me if you’ve tried. If I hear from five new followers, but my follower stats remain totally unchanged, I’ll know something’s fishy.

Note: There is a “Following” button in the lower right-hand corner of this page.

I don’t think they’re letting us follow each other’s blogs.

Let’s try to find out.

Leaked: Facebook Censoring ‘Vaccine Hesitation’

50 Cute Puppy Pictures That You Need to See — Puppy Pictures | Reader's  Digest

You know why I show happy puppy pictures with posts like this one.

Two Facebook “insiders” have leaked to Project Veritas documents stating the tech giant’s intention to track and censor “vaccine hesitancy” (https://granthshala.com/facebook-whistleblowers-leak-documents-revealing-effort-to-censor-vaccine-hesitancy-report/). Because they don’t think you should be allowed to read any discouraging words about any COVID-19 vaccine.

What? We have a right to hear only one side of the discussion? Well, that’s Big Tech’s usual M.O., isn’t it? No debate–“The science is settled!” Like it always is. And settled their way, no one else’s.

These vaccines were rushed into production, they have not yet been officially approved by the Food and Drug Administration–well, you know what you get when you mix science and politics. You just get politics.

Facebook and the rest of these Big Tech overlords need to be taught they don’t have any right or authority to control public opinion. If Congress is afraid to rein them in, it’ll have to be done by the states. Florida is already leading the way: Floridians can now sue the tech biggies for up to $100,000 in damages if they’ve been banned or censored.

In America all public policy has always been subject to debate. Leftids always–yes, always–try to shut down the debate. And I don’t know what kind of government you’d call it, but I’d be ashamed to call it America.

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

Image result for images of banning twitter

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.
