Glenn Greenwald: The Marxist-Corporatist Fusion Regime, Now Knowing It Is Safe and Will Not be Challenged or Limited for At Least Four Years, Goes Full Authoritarian, As It Had Always Lusted to Do

Glenn Greenwald @ggreenwald

The ACLU in NYT on why the union of Silicon Valley monopolies -- Apple, Google and Amazon -- to remove Parler from the internet is so problematic. While ACLU is largely just a liberal pressure group now, they still have some real civil liberties lawyers:

Tech monopolies -- FB, Google, Apple, Amazon -- have more concentrated wealth & power than any in history. They have used brute force 3 times in 3 months to manipulate US politics: censoring NY Post, banning Trump, destroying Parler.

And liberals are overwhelmingly supportive.

That these Silicon Valley monopolies are grave menaces to political freedom & economic well-being is *not* a right-wing view.

The most comprehensive report warning of these dangers was issued 3 months ago by a Democratic House Sub-Committee. Read this.

House: Amazon, Facebook, Apple, Google have “monopoly power,” should be split Blockbuster report calls for beefing up enforcement and aiming for breakups.


Authoritarians never believe they're authoritarians, no matter how much censorship, surveillance, jingoism, & imprisonment they demand.

They tell themselves their enemies are so uniquely evil and dangerous - terrorists - that anything done in the name of fighting them is noble.


Do you know how many of the people arrested in connection with the Capitol invasion were active users of Parler?

Zero.

The planning was largely done on Facebook. This is all a bullshit pretext for silencing competitors on ideological grounds: just the start.

And by "terrorist," they mean you.

Biden's team has been very open that he plans to realign the nation's anti-terrorist forces to root out... domestic "terrorists."

Americans who reject the Marxist-Corporatist Fusion Regime, he means.

Those who will not submit to subjugation.

Below, Glenn Greenwald's thread on the New War on Non-Terrorism.

I will link the videos he embeds -- but note, these links go to Twitter.

Glenn Greenwald @ggreenwald There's absolutely a new War on Terror being initiated -- it'd been lurking for awhile, but it's accelerating now for obvious reasons. This new one is aimed inward, domestically. It entails many of the same frameworks.

They're saying it explicitly:

f the last few decades teach anything, it should be that making weighty decisions at times of high and intense emotions, closely following an event that unifies most everyone to the point that any deviations or questioning are treated like treason or heresy, is extremely unwise.

Amazing - yesterday I wrote: the same tactic used against critics of the first War on Terror would be used for the new one: demonizing those who question its excesses as "pro-terrorist."

Today, up pops neocon @DavidFrum to reprise his role, this time as a liberal thought leader....

Liberals who are behind the Biden/Harris plan to initiate this new War on Terror, this time with a primary domestic focus, won't need to study what neocons did with the first War on Terror to learn those old tactics against critics. Neocons are their full allies in all of this.


A key ally for the Dems in this domestic War on Terror will be the same media outlets who have acted as their spokespeople since 2016. CNN employs a former conservative, @oliverdarcy, whose main function in life is to demand censorship on behalf of Dems.

Now CNN's @oliverdarcy is going after cable companies for carrying Fox News

Most of these pro-Dem media outlets employ people whose principal job is do demand censorship of Democrats' adversaries. When FB yesterday announced the Trump ban, Darcy immediately popped up to complain it wasn't broad enough, that we need mass banning on those on the Right:

I spent the first decade of my journalism career devoted to exposing and denouncing the excesses of the first War on Terror, and I see exactly the same tactics forming...

If you question or are concerned about these new powers, you'll be branded as sympathetic to the terrorists.

As I said, one could see this new domestic War on Terror forming long before the events at the Capitol. Someone just posted this clip where I discussed it with
@JoeRogan before the election, in Oct. Lots of big institutions with an interest in doing this.


In case any of you doubt there is a new War on Terror underway: here's a former CIA operative and Pentagon official now a member of Congress (a Democrat, needless to say), explicitly saying (on MSNBC, of course) that the new War on Terror is domestic.

Neocon grifter turned pasty leftwing agitator David French spastically agrees:

@DavidAFrench · The most powerful man in the world incited an attack on our republic.

The free American citizens who work for Twitter responded with an action freely chosen.

And MAGA voices wail about lost followers as evidence of totalitarianism.

Snowflakes.

The snarling -- but pasty and pudgy -- face of fascism.
