We’re Only Just Beginning to Understand the Extent of Biden’s Censorship Regime


by Stephen Green

When Presidentish Joe Biden took office — and I do mean “took” — more than three years ago, every reader here knew we were in for bad times.

It used to be when we lost an election, we had to suffer through four or (Lord help us) eight years of bad policy — inflation, overspending, overregulation, and maybe a small war or two. Now, we get four years or (seriously, Lord, we could use some help here) eight years of chipping away at the foundations of the Republic.

New details have emerged that the Biden administration planted dynamite in the hole created by Barack Obama.

Rep. Jim Jordan’s (R-Ohio) Select Subcommittee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government released an 800-page report that reads like Ayn Rand’s “Atlas Shrugged.”

Take a look:

  • In March 2021, an Amazon employee emailed others within the company about the reason for the Amazon bookstore’s new content moderation policy change: “[T]he impetus for this request is criticism from the Biden Administration about sensitive books we’re giving prominent placement to.”
  • In March 2021, just one day prior to a scheduled call with the White House, an Amazon employee explained how changes to Amazon’s bookstore policies were being applied “due to criticism from the Biden people.”
  • In July 2021, when Facebook executive Nick Clegg asked a Facebook employee why the company censored the man-made theory of the SARS-CoV-2 virus, the employee responded: “Because we were under pressure from the [Biden] administration and others to do more. . . . We shouldn’t have done it.”

YouTube “shared with the Biden White House a new ‘policy proposal’ to censor more content criticizing the safety and efficacy of vaccines, asking for ‘any feedback’ the White House could provide before the policy had been finalized.” Someone at the Biden White House got back to YouTube with, “at first blush, seems like a great step.”

One Facebook executive’s email revealed that the company was brainstorming “additional policy levers we can pull to be more aggressive against . . . misinformation. This is stemming from the continued criticism of our approach from the [Biden] administration.”

Facebook’s internal communications also revealed that “The Surgeon General wants us to remove true information about [COVID vaccine] side effects,” and, of course, Facebook eventually complied. Mark Zuckerberg tried to resist at least at one point, emailing that “when we compromise our standards due to an administration in either direction, we’ll often regret it.”

But the White House applied more pressure, and Zuckerberg caved.

There’s a word for using government power to silence debate: censorship. And it’s as American as serfdom, haggis, seppuku.

It is far more that just rhetoric to say that Democrats always accuse others on what they themselves are engaged in. Democrats cry that Trump and the Republicans are bringing an end to “democracy” (whether they mean the constitutional republic or don’t know what they mean) when, in actual and provable fact, THEY are trampling, crushing, attacking, undercutting, demolishing, destroying democracy, the republic and the Constitution.

What possible reason would they have for infringing upon free speech. Maybe people are of the realization that Washington is not but lies.

Yep, that’s the left “saving democracy” by forbidding anyone from disagreeing with the incompetence of the federal government under Democrats.
