When truth is the enemy
At its base, the progressive cancel culture is less about de-platforming extreme ideas and more about persecuting people with whom they disagree. Their aim is not correction but destruction – and they want to make sure nobody hears ideas with which they disagree.

It is sad how closed minded the American progressive left have become.  They are so uncertain of the legitimacy of their beliefs that out of weakness they impose censorship and cancel culture upon all who disagree with them.  To them the truth is enemy #1.  They view political opposition as evil and view belief in God and the Bible literally as even a bigger threat to their dark world view.  A great article!

At its base, the progressive cancel culture is less about de-platforming extreme ideas and more about persecuting people with whom they disagree. Their aim is not correction but destruction – and they want to make sure nobody hears ideas with which they disagree.


Ensconced among the cherry trees ringing the Tidal Basin in Washington, DC, rests the Jefferson Memorial. The rotunda of this stately edifice shelters a statue of the great man. Among his many inscriptions adorning the walls are these words:

"I have sworn upon the altar of God eternal hostility against every form of tyranny over the mind of man."

With a craven cancel culture now in full sway, one can only wonder what the man who crafted the Declaration of Independence might say about it. Perhaps he would rehearse the Declaration's self-evident truths:

"That we are endowed by our Creator with certain unalienable rights; that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness."

George Washington too 'controversial'?

Well, apparently what the Lord giveth the Lifetime Network taketh away. After nearly three years of Lifetime airing our weekly "Truths That Transform" television program – one in which we apply biblical truths to the great moral, ethical, and cultural question of our day – officials at Lifetime have suddenly decided our program content is too "controversial," forcing us off their network.

They objected to our exposé on Planned Parenthood, in which we documented their sale of baby body parts derived from abortions. They objected to our exposé on billionaire radical George Soros and his systematic efforts to undermine American laws and institutions. They even objected to our program on the spiritual life of George Washington.

no-religion_350x219.jpg At the same time the Lifetime Channel is giving us the back of their hand, we received reports from others in the community of Christian broadcasters that other major cable television channels and networks are cancelling entire blocks of religious programming. This is the new face of corporate responsibility in America – viewpoint discrimination, prior restraint, and outright censorship.

This spitting in the face of those with viewpoints differing from the new woke orthodoxy by broadcast and cable television is bad enough, but it gets worse. Others providing business services to those holding non-favored viewpoints are falling all over each other to demonstrate their woke bona fides by denying services to those with the heretical temerity to hold views diverging from those permissible under Progressive woke-ism.

Mail Chimp knows best

Witness the good folks at wannabe-gatekeeper Mail Chimp , the simian-friendly email platform whose Standard Terms of Use were recently modified to include this language:

"Mailchimp does not allow the distribution of Content that is, in our sole discretion, materially false, inaccurate, or misleading in a way that could deceive or confuse others about important events, topics, or circumstances."

How Mail Chimp is singularly qualified to adjudicate matters of truth or falsity across a wide range of cultural issues escapes the notice of most neutral observers. But herein lies the genius of Progressive thinkers: If the viewpoint in question is different than ours, it must be false. Case closed.

Or witness the noble work of the enlightened folks at Wells Fargo in forcibly closing the financial accounts of people highly visible in the conservative and Christian landscape. Or California-based Logix Federal Credit Union refusing accounts to people even doing business with religious organizations. Naturally, the elephant-in-the-room question is: When will woke financial institutions begin targeting the supporters of Christian and conservative organizations?

In a biblical context, many are familiar with the predictive prophecy that restricts buying and selling to those with "the mark of the beast." What we see emerging today is a secular version in reverse order. Instead of everyone having the mark, those with disfavored viewpoints and ideals are anointed with a latter-day scarlet letter. More like the "No soup for you" pronouncements from Seinfeld's Soup Nazi.

freedom-of-speech-2_350x219.jpg However it's characterized, at base the progressive cancel culture is less about de-platforming extreme ideas and more about persecuting people with whom they disagree. Their aim is not correction but destruction. If the Southern Poverty Law Center were true to their own disingenuous and defamatory definition of hate, they would have to include two-thirds of the Progressive left (and themselves!) on their infamous map. Today's Progressives more resemble Orwell's dystopian epic "1984," where Winston Smith, who was outed as non-conforming, is brainwashed back to Oceanian orthodoxy and then awaits his execution.

More speech, not less

One might argue that the foundational question here is: Why are Progressives so deathly afraid of the free marketplace of ideas? They are in urgent need of reading – perhaps for the first time – John Milton's "Areopagitica." In his polemic against the state-sponsored cancel culture of his day, this Puritan(!) declared: "Let [Truth] and Falsehood grapple; who ever knew Truth put to the worse, in a free and open encounter?"

Milton argued that the best defense of freedom of speech and expression was the debate and discussion of ideas – where good ideas would tend to rise and bad ideas to fall. Perhaps the cancel culture is a latent acknowledgement that Progressive ideas suffer under the weight of scrutiny.

Whatever the case, it's self-evident that the solitary idea nearest to the Progressive heart is to make sure nobody hears your ideas. This is nothing less than Jefferson's "tyranny over the mind of man." For those who understand how hard-won freedom actually is, we too must swear eternal hostility against the efforts of those who would steal it.

The videos released last summer led Texas and other Republican-controlled states to try to halt funding for local Planned Parenthood operations, with Republicans in the U.S. Congress also pushing for a funding cut.

The grand jury reviewed the case for more than two months and its decision was a result of a probe launched last year under Texas Governor Greg Abbott, a Republican, who accused Planned Parenthood of the “gruesome harvesting of baby body parts.”

“After a lengthy and thorough investigation by the Harris County District Attorney’s Office, the Texas Rangers, and the Houston Police Department, a Harris County grand jury took no action Monday against Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast,” the Harris County District Attorney’s office said in a statement.

Planned Parenthood has denied the accusation and called the probe politically motivated.

David Daleiden and Sandra Merritt were indicted by the grand jury for tampering with a governmental record, said prosecutors for the county in which Houston is located. The felony charge is punishable by up to 20 years in prison.  A felony and misdemeanor were later dropped for filing technicalities.

Jury finds for PP in civil case in California.

Criminal case against Dalelion & Merritt to continue in CA.

On December 6, 2019, Judge Christopher Hite ruled that Daleiden and Merritt will stand trial on nine felony counts involving eavesdropping and invasion of privacy. [51] At the February 21, 2020 arraignment, Daleiden and Sandra Merritt pleaded not guilty to nine counts of criminal eavesdropping and invasion of privacy

Crackpots who defame for religious beliefs.

In May, 2020, Daleiden filed suit against California Attorney General Xavier Becerra and former Attorney General Kamala Harris , claiming Harris conspired with Planned Parenthood to violate his civil rights by prosecuting him for his undercover investigation

Oh.. So you didn't read your summaries. Not one court found the tapes were  "doctored," like you claimed.

In fact, in the only case  where the validity of the tapes was examined by the Court, PP didn't contest their validity nor the expert who validated them and the Federal Circuit cited them as an appropriate basis for Texas to deny funding to PP. 

It's not your fault by you were bamboozled by talking points and a media that pushes them to support the Democratic Party.

Thank you for proving my point, yet again.  Unsurprisingly, your post is completely devoid of substantive argument. Why not be a useful contributor and point out where exactly, a Court (and not PP) held the docs were heavily edited?  Should be easy if your post had any validity.   

This is the benefit the Democrats get from the media pushing a lie for them.  The low information person will retain the first narrative they hear and not pay attention or be too lazy to consider reality when the story get quietly walked back. You know, the people who will still believe the "hands up, don't shoot" narrative, or that Officer Sicknick was beaten with a fire extinguisher, or that a FISA application  would, never ever rely on something as flimsy as the Steele dossier.  The media starts a false narrative  and progressive useful idiots will push it on others until eternity. 

Anyone can see that none of SP links are to a Court finding that the videos were heavily doctored. The only court case where the tape's veracity was at issue is in the case I cited and the Federal Fifth Circuit   Court of Appeals  upheld it's use as a basis to deny PP funding.    But truth doesn't matter to those invested in the "heavily doctored" lie.    .

I don't think you need to be Christian or conservative to think people such as George Washington or Abraham Lincoln are worthy of having schools named after them. And you don't need to be progressive or anti-religion to think it's urgent that those names be removed from schools. You just need to be a pinhead.

This article can be summed up with one sentence, “waaaaahhhhh, people don’t HAVE to listen to my opinions and that isn’t fair!”

Fuck off with the cancel culture crap, the fact of the matter is companies care about their reputations and image and are under no obligation whatsoever to give you or anyone else a platform to express your opinions. Especially when you violate the terms of service.

A religious person can have an opinion on something, but that doesn’t mean that opinion actually derives from the religion they follow.

And so just because someone opposes that opinion, or its expression, that does not mean that opposition is anti-religion.

IT BEGINS: The Biden Administration Just Formed An Unholy Alliance With Big Tech

by Chris Donaldson about 4 hours ago

In another example of how Big Tech oligarchs are in the bag for the Democratic party, the California-based monopolies are working hand-in-hand with the Biden administration to impose a chilling new round of censorship.

Under the pretense of fighting “COVID misinformation,” the leaders of Facebook, Google, and Twitter will be waging war on free speech on their platforms by eliminating honest questions about vaccines, one more way that Dems have weaponized an unprecedented public health crisis to crush their political opposition.

I tend to watch and see WTF really happens when I hear things like "WIll Be, might happen, probably may come to be".

Many times as we know Questions are loaded. They are not Honest questions to begin with. Questions can be as deceiving as answers when worded to be. 

I have little doubt that many dems and even many reps would like the truth about vaccines (and everything else as well) to be distributed freely. 

I would hope that blatant misinformation is at least discriminated against by any and all private web sites.

While I am a advocate for free speech I also believe dishonest dangerious purposefully misleading words should be considered dangerious and potentially quite harmful and should always be ASAP countered with the truth.

Knowingly propagating non truth is counter productive to the reality we all share and at times like in a pandemic can certainly be deadly. 

I can't blame private social media websites for being careful, lifes are probably at stake and social media has a legitimate part to play in the public dissemination of facts, especially facts that pertain to human lives.   

Unlike Fox where their poofing posts was really no great big deal, cause chances were no one was going to die over the libs and progressives not being able to post on Fox's chat room. 

Misinformation about a deadly virus could be deadly however.

The most deadly thing so far has been the resistance to the use of Hydrochloroquiene to resist the worst effects of the disease before it gets to that stage

There is no evidence that hydroxychloroquine provides any benefit in the prevention or treatment of Covid-19, nor is there any evidence for the benefit of ingesting bleach. 

Since Trump is God to them, Trump worshipping acolytes slavishly and fervently accept any lie from their Dear Leader as the truth.

that fact that president trump  declared that "COVID-19 will just disappear."

Hydroxychloroquine:

Hydroxychloroquine and chloroquine. These malaria drugs were authorized for emergency use by the FDA during the COVID-19 pandemic. However, the FDA withdrew that authorization when data analysis showed that the drugs are not effective for treating COVID-19. They can also cause serious heart problems.

Researchers are studying drugs to prevent COVID-19 before and after exposure to the virus. It's critical to complete medical studies to determine whether any of these medications are effective against COVID-19.

Don't try these medications without a prescription and your doctor's approval, even if you've heard that they may have promise. These drugs can have serious side effects. They're reserved for people who are seriously ill and under a doctor's care.

Can hydroxychloroquine treat COVID-19?

Studies reporting no benefit
In early June 2020, researchers in the United Kingdom published results from the largest trial to date on hydroxychloroquine.

Of the 4,674 hospitalized patients who took part in the trial, 1,542 received hydroxychloroquine, while 3,132 received standard treatment.
The percentage of people who died after 4 weeks was 25.7% for those receiving the drug and 23.5% for those receiving standard treatment.

These data suggest that there is no meaningful benefit to taking hydroxychloroquine for those with active COVID-19 disease.

Nor does hydroxychloroquine appear to protect healthy people from disease onset after exposure to the virus.

A randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial of 821 participants suggests that the medication does not protect those at high risk of COVID-19 infection.

The NIH were running a clinical trial to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of using hydroxychloroquine to treat adults hospitalized with COVID-19. However, the NIH halted the trial after the initial data suggested that the drug was no more effective than a placebo.
What is the consensus?

Overall, the findings from the above studies suggest that there is limited evidence for the use of hydroxychloroquine for the prevention or treatment of COVID-19.

A meta-analysis of 23 studies investigating the use of hydroxychloroquine for COVID-19 supports this view.

The meta-analysis concludes that the evidence on the benefits and harms of the drug is both weak and conflicting.

And yet it was used all over the world and the death rate from the disease was lowered where it was used than here where it was opposed and suppressed by some with a religious like zealotry.

True, Now it seems the benefits in large scale do outweigh the dangers, to most people. Initial studies seemed to show differently though. 

That alone sure still doesn't negate the fact that trump promoting, "Covid will just disappear" was false, neglectful, irresponsible statements from the leader of over 300 million people. 

Look how many people believe whatever trump says. IF President trump would have told Americans the truth from day one we may not have over half a million of us now dead. 

Cause as we all know the fact is covid did not "Just disappear" as our leader told us all it would not long before half a million died from it.

It is sad how closed minded the American progressive left have become.  They are so uncertain of the legitimacy of their beliefs and ideas that out of weakness they impose censorship and cancel culture upon all of us who dare to disagree with them.  To them the truth is enemy #1 .  They view their political opposition as evil and view belief in God and the Bible literally as even a bigger threat to their dark world view.  A great article!
