Is Alex Jones the “Canary in the Coal Mine”?
Opinion by Ralph Fucetola JD
The Deep State Wants to Provide “Corrective Information”
AKA Soviet Style Censorship – And They are Doing a Pretty Good Job of It!
Alex Jones and his Info Wars were “de-platformed” over a 24 hour period on August 5/6, 2018 by the following “independent” corporate media” —
YouTube/Google, Facebook, Apple, Spottify
Perhaps thereby proving Alex Jones’ “conspiracy theories?”
Now, a couple weeks later, The Daily Beast is chortling that Jones has been “crushed.”
The Daily Beast just published a fake news story that AJ has been “crushed” by YouTube’s crony corporate censorship. The article implies that AJ’s operation is about to crash. The title says it all: “Infowars said Youtube ban would make it stronger actually it’s been crushed…”
I know from my contacts at Info Wars this is not true, and, more importantly, Info Wars’ Alexa ranking shows the opposite! Look at how much his traffic has grown:
Facebook deletes unpopular/challenging/unacceptable ideas.
They [allegedly] have the “right” to do that: they are [allegedly] a private company. YouTube/Google removes anti vaccine and other unpopular/challenging corporate-control-averse and, at their whim, edit contrary thought with “corrective” intrusions. They maintain that they have the “right” to do so because they are a[n] [allegedly] private company.
They use our public airways, have massive contracts with public sources (that is, get paid with your tax dollars by NSA and the like) and benefit from a government-maintained monopoly status.
What used to be our First Amendment Freedom of Speech has vanished into an electrosmog haze of privatized tyranny and censorship.
The government does not have to do a thing but sit idly by while its tax-subsidized, defense contract enhanced corporate “partners” do its dirty work in exactly the same way that hospitals and schools have institutionalized totally illegal vaccine mandates in violation of Informed Consent.
The First Amendment’s “Congress shall make no law…” censoring speech remains the law, but it is increasingly a “dead letter law.” This trick, where the Deep State pretends that the old freedoms remain, is itself an old trick.
Part of the old trick is to create structures that seem to be protecting the freedoms while they actually destroy them.
But in modern times the structure of bureaucracy itself has been redesigned to become, not just to serve, the control system.
Consider, for, example, how the regulatory structure of the Deep State’s Military Draft was used in the USA during the 1960s and ‘70s to “channel” students into certain fields, such as science, engineering and weapons design, which were considered of benefit to the state.
Now we see the same process at work with the incessant demands for ever more vaccines, and for forcing adults and children to receive all the vaccines that crony corporatist-tainted science can concoct without regard for either scientific validation or personal rights.
We continue to fight the mandates to a stand-still, asserting our universal right to Informed Consent.
The incipient tyrants learned an important lesson from the power of our Push Back: overt Federal mandates will be resisted.
That is when we began to see the authorities passing off the mandates to allegedly private actors for enforcement. While this privatizing of tyranny works to increase censorship and impose unlawful financial controls, the vax mandate gambit remains a primary example of this political process.
In 2017 I wrote about this issue in an article published here at www.BolenReport.com and warned that by privatizing censorship we were institutionalizing tyranny, allowing the Crony Corporate State to destroy our liberty. Unfortunately, I was all too right.
It is reported that Marc Zuckerberg personally de-platformed Alex Jones on his own, but that hardly explains the rest of the de-platforming.
Our Freedom of Speech is under a world wide web of attack.
While various authoritarian states make no effort to hide direct censorship of speech, the “advanced democracies” are more subtle. Germany, with no absolute constitutional protection for Free Speech, is contemplating empowering Internet Service Providers to refuse service to “hate groups.”
At the same time the large international corporate controllers of the Internet, such as YouTube, Facebook and Google, are already escalating content controls to enforce “political correctness” – if you don’t follow the Party Line, you cannot be heard.
First they came for the Neo-Nazis and banned them from Facebook.
No one protested. Then they came for Alex Jones and banned him from YouTube and Facebook. No one protested. Then they came for… You know the rest… they came for you and me, and no one was left to protest.
These supposed private Social Media Companies are actually exercising government authority. Just as much as if they had been the “private” Tax Farmers of Ancient Rome.
They are the privatized agents of control and censorship. They exercise this control on several levels. Each of these mega-corporations is, in fact and in law, “a creature of the state.” It is created by registration with government that gives it authorities (such as limited liability to third parties) which it could not exercise as a truly private association.
If the same Rule of Law that applies to truly private actors applied to government and its crony corporations, “content control” efforts would be understood to be exactly what they are: censorship.
Real free market competition and technological progress would rapidly make the near-monopoly power of Google and Facebook irrelevant.
If the same Rule of Law that ought to apply to Government Censorship – that there can be no such law – applied to the crony corporations, YouTube, Facebook etc. “private” censorship could not remain.
The best way to fight the Deep State Swamp Trolls is to loudly assert your right to communicate your truth to all your circles of influence. Never be silenced!
