In which Sir Fancy Mammoth and Proletariat discuss absolutely-nothing-stop-arguing-with-me.
After all the mainstream media’s fuss about the Trump administration’s “war on the press”, you’d think we would be hearing more than crickets from them as this same administration makes the shocking move of forcing RT America to register as a foreign agent. Luckily, as always, we can at least count on Redacted Tonight’s Lee Camp to rip all this bullshit to shreds.
In a corporatist system of government, corporate censorship is state censorship. When there’s no meaningful space between corporate power and government power, it doesn’t make much difference whether the guy silencing your dissent is Mark Zuckerberg or Jeff Sessions. America most definitely has such a system. I have been banned from Facebook for sharing an article of 58 documented incidences – already on the public record – of false flag campaigns staged by the US. Joseph McCarthy would be so proud.
Democracy 2.0 is having its own modern-day McCarthy moment: Millionaire George Soros has published a blacklist of thousands of politicians, journalists, academics and celebrities ever to appear on Russian state broadcaster, RT, designed to intimidate anyone from ever appearing on the network which has already been defunded by NatWest, demonetised by social media giants that have rapidly become privately outsourced state regulators. This campaign of censorship and content control is proof of an establishment fast losing control of the narrative.
The people who cheered as offensive content was censored by internet providers should not be so quick to applaud. They may soon find the same tactic used against causes they love. A look back at examples over the past 10 years can help demonstrate why we all have cause for concern.
