Censorship

CLICK https://bongino.com/tucker-carlson-slams-big-tech-ceos-hypocrisy-after-latest-hearing [8:02] to hear Tucker tear into the CEOs of Twitter, Facebook, and Google. They say they believe in free speech, yet they wholly support massive censorship of speech they don’t like.

While it is true that more information is available more quickly than ever before, the problems of people spreading lies, slander, gossip, disinformation, fake news, partisan talking points, etc. etc. dates back to the Garden of Eden.

Surely the Founders knew all about it, yet they made it a top priority to ensure that speech in America should be policed by individuals, not the government. They may not have had any inkling of the problem we face now with billionaire CEOs deciding what we should and shouldn’t know, but they certainly would have opposed them.

So how should we go about filtering out what we should believe, pass on, and base our beliefs and actions upon?

One method dates back to Socrates, who is credited with the Triple Filter Test.

  1. Is it true? Do I know for a fact that this information is true? Can I bet on it? Will I be able to prove it to anyone? Am I willing to compromise my reputation over this?
  2. Is it good? Does it benefit me or the other person? Will it make them or me a better person and evoke positive emotions? Will the situation of those involved improve?
  3. Is it necessary or useful? By knowing this message, will that person’s life or my life improve? Can that person take any practical action regarding this information or message? In what way does not knowing this information hurt or affect the other person?

The Rotary Club has developed their Four-Way Test, which they describe as “a nonpartisan and nonsectarian ethical guide for Rotarians to use for their personal and professional relationships.” Rotarians recite it at club meetings.

Of the things we think, say or do,

  1. Is it the TRUTH?
  2. Is it FAIR to all concerned?
  3. Will it build GOODWILL and BETTER FRIENDSHIPS?
  4. Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned?

The Bible also has a lot to say about this issue. My personal favorite is Philippians 4:8.

CUOMO: Last year, Gov. Cuomo instructed the state Department of Health to conduct prioritized coronavirus testing on his relatives and other influential people with ties to the administration. As a result, Dr. Eleanor Adams, a Harvard-trained epidemiologist, drove out to Long Island to test CNN’s Chris Cuomo, the governor’s brother. CNN didn’t cover the story.

ELECTION INTEGRITY: Georgia’s Gov. Brian Kemp has signed legislation into law requiring stronger voter identification requirements for absentee ballots and limiting the use of ballot drop boxes. These are exactly the kinds of election reforms that the Democrats in D.C. are trying to prevent with their heinous H.R. 1 bill.

FAUXTUS’ PRESSER: CLICK https://www.facebook.com/TuckerCarlsonTonight/videos/1381034312230528 [10:59] to hear Tucker’s BRUTAL analysis of the pathetic performance by the empty-headed suit in the White House and his slobbering fans in the media. Be sure to stay on to see Mark Steyn at the end LOL.

CLICK https://www.facebook.com/cherry.walker1/posts/10222258208418757 [5:18] to hear the clips Bill O’Reilly chose and his commentary. Border apprehensions are up 174%, but FAUXTUS says it’s just the normal winter surge. This clip isn’t funny or snarky, like Tucker’s, but it includes different clips.

GUN GRABBING: CLICK https://www.facebook.com/WhyMinutes/posts/776063679960204 [2:29] for a quick look at the history of gun control.

GUN PROTEST: CLICK https://www.facebook.com/fleccas/videos/494406925057360 [8:04] to hear both ignorant and well-informed folks at an anti-gun rally talk about the issues. “Ban guns” but “It’s not about banning guns.”

MANCHIN: Remember how yesterday I said Sen. Joe Manchin could be critical to stopping the Democrats’ evil H.R.1/S.1 power grab? You’ll never guess whose wife just got nominated for what the FAUXTUS administration calls a “key” position?

MASK NAZIS: I. Can’t. Even. Go. Here. I skimmed this article, but I can’t bring myself to say anything about it. It just makes me too sad. And angry.

SPORTS: On Thursday, Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson signed into law a bill banning transgender female-identifying athletes from participating in women’s sports. I’m curious to see if the NCAA boycotts Arkansas over it, like they threatened to do to South Dakota.

TRANSPORTATION TAX: CLICK https://twitter.com/therecount/status/1375448566865485833 [:19] to hear FAUXTUS’ Secretary of Transportation, former mayor of somewhere or other, Pete “he’s gay so he’s qualified” Bootyjudge tell us how excited he is about taxing drivers by mileage.

Tweeters had much to say, most of it beginning with the F word. Personally, I’m just all over gob-smacked about his statement that taxing gasoline “isn’t the way to go any more.” Is that Democrat code for “We can’t get away with raising the gas tax any higher than it already is”?
