    Tucker Carlson warned his Fox News audience that the “unprecedented” assault on their civil liberties is here and will have major consequences.

    The Fox News host blasted the latest moves by “Silicon Valley oligarchs” to rid social media and online platforms of conservative speech during his monologue on “Tucker Carlson Tonight” Friday. His remarks came amid a wave of actions by Big Tech companies to purge platforms of President Donald Trump and his supporters, and even affected the Fox News network.




    https://www.bizpacreview.com/2021/0...n-potus-and-they-want-you-to-know-it-1014228/






    This is the beginning of the end of free speech and the first amendment in America. The big tech social media are now purging themselves of conservative content and members. We will all be next. The new government endorses this purge. Not only are they trying to keep us off of their platforms they are trying to keep alternatives to them off the air.

    The first minute or so is the end of the prior show before Tuckers open.

    Republicans want to control what corporations say on their platform?

    Forcing Twitter or anyone else to repeat their words?

    Private companies have rules to follow. You don’t follow those rules you lose the privilege to use the private company’s product. No civil liberties assault going on here.

    Their rules like their gatekeeper so called fact checkers are biased in favor of one sides expression and against that of the other side.

    What Tucker said is right. Banning one sides expressions will not moderate that side, it will further radicalize it in response to the censorship and rightfully so. Did anyone see ABC News and the talk of cleansing the country of its Trump supporters? They changed the word cleansed after the outcry but the intent is still clear. We are MAGA! We will not be cleansed. Trump 2024 needed now more than ever!

    Ah yes. Tucker Carlson. The first pundit whose signature move was a vacant stare.

    Yes well I hope you all got whatever you wanted to say out of your system during the Trump presidency, because anything not in line with the dictatorship will be deleted

    Facts are facts though and they are rather stubborn things. To (mis)quote Isaac Asimov. "Your ignorance doesn't beat out my knowledge"

    There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there has always been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that 'my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.” Isaac Asimov

    And you want to do this by having the government take over private companies so that they are forced to post what you want them to ... WTF.

    It's really scary that you put a Hollywood style entertainer on that high a pedestal.

    Well I actually got suspended for three days by another news talk site for seeding this very article with the required picture the site requires for seeding it. It has begun.

    Just look at the George Soros Open Society funded IFCN fact checkers and their liberal bias that these sites use. A liberal whose who to say the least. And one often quoted here by left of center members to try to attack the credibility of the seeds source MBFC is one of the worst. There is nothing fair or objective about that site or those who use it for content control purposes.

    Ahh, the Great Soros Conspiracy Theory. Crank down on that tin-foil hat or Soros and Gates will take over your mind.

    John McCain was a Great American Hero and Desmond Doss was a Great American Hero.

    Tucker Carlson is a 51-year-old man with the presentation style of an earnest 6-year-old child. He only recently stopped wearing little kid bow ties. His main talent seems to be keeping his reproductive organs covered and restrained while better presenters didn't.

    I’m at the point where I strongly believe that when a nation reach the apex of its technological and cultural advancement, nature steps in to rectify the situation by pumping out more and more mentally challenged/conspiracy theorist until said society implodes.

    it happened to the Romans, the Germans and now it’s the USA turn.

    That is not any type of proof all fact checkers are liberally biased but I get why you need to believe it.

    No one denies that McCain and especially Desmond Doss were heroes. They were moral and military heroes. Tucker Carlson is a more contemporary time civilian hero speaking truth to power.
