Will Unapproved Opinions Be Censored Off the Internet?

Will Unapproved Opinions Be Censored Off the Internet? By Stefan Gleason.

You wouldn’t be reading this if you didn’t value alternative points of view. After all, you could easily click your mouse right now to CNBC, CNN, or The New York Times for conventional news and opinion. …

One of their main targets, alternative media personality Alex Jones, had his Facebook account suspended, multiple videos removed from YouTube, and podcasts deleted from streaming services.

Has Jones made some controversial claims over the years? Sure.

But he has also hosted top-notch experts on his program who are willing to speak inconvenient truths about our monetary system, about market manipulation, about the globalist agenda.

Among his guests have been Gerald Celente and Jim Rickards … , former Congressman Ron Paul, and even Donald Trump (early in his presidential run).

It’s pretty safe to say that Donald Trump would never have become GOP Nominee Trump — let alone President Trump — without the sizeable backing he got on alternative media and social media platforms.

Now many of his supporters are being de-platformed and shadow banned by social media CEOs who were in the bag for Hillary Clinton. …

Our once free and open Internet could become as centrally controlled and censored as it is in Communist China.

Yes, we still have the First Amendment. But members of Congress have discovered a convenient end run around it. They can just outsource whatever they want censored to the tiny handful of corporations that control 98% of the Internet.

The future we are heading towards:

History is now “hate speech.” It won’t be long before the perpetually offended demand that Google searches for “Krugerrands” – first minted during South African apartheid – return links to the Southern Poverty Law Center.

Any analysis that questions the official version of a politically sensitive issue is a “conspiracy theory” – no sharing on Facebook without a trigger warning placed by Team Zuckerberg. …

Big media relentlessly spews its own hate speech, as exemplified by recent New York Times editorial board hire Sarah Jeong. …

Imagine what the Internet would be like if only New York Times-approved opinions were allowed to be posted.
