The Moderate, Centrist Candidate Relentlessly Promoted by NeverTrump Is Now Pressuring Tech Monopolies to Censor Your Personal Texts If They Contain What the Ruling Junta Considers "Misinformation"

Muh Norms are being restored left and right!

Kira Davis at RedState:

The Biden administration has failed spectacularly at their goal of getting 70% of the American population vaccinated for COVID by the beginning of July. It was unrealistic in the first place. Most Americans are not hard-wired for obedience, even if COVID lockdowns proved too many people seem to be...

Now Biden's team and surrogates are making plans to censor your private text messages the same way Big Tech censors your social media posts.

In addition to their KGB-for-dummies plan of knocking on your door to inquire about your personal medical decisions, the White House plans to activate left-wing groups and activists to put pressure on phone carriers to censor SMS text messages that may contain "misinformation" about COVID, the vaccines, and heaven knows what else they may consider to be wrong information.

From Politico:

Biden allied groups, including the Democratic National Committee, are also planning to engage fact-checkers more aggressively and work with SMS carriers to dispel misinformation about vaccines that is sent over social media and text messages. The goal is to ensure that people who may have difficulty getting a vaccination because of issues like transportation see those barriers lessened or removed entirely.

"We are steadfastly committed to keeping politics out of the effort to get every American vaccinated so that we can save lives and help our economy further recover," White House spokesperson Kevin Munoz said. "When we see deliberate efforts to spread misinformation, we view that as an impediment to the country's public health and will not shy away from calling that out."

Via Tim Pool, two thirds of Americans say they already censor themselves due to the conformist pressure to repeat the official corporate propaganda -- but that's not enough for the Ruling Class.

The poll of 1,462 people found 18 percent said they censored themselves "all the time" while 48 percent said they did so "sometimes."

Fifty-nine percent of those asked deemed current levels of censorship in the United States to be "out of control" and "unacceptable," according to market research firm Invisibly, which is backed by Peter Thiel’s Founders Fund.

Most respondents, 91 percent, said they had a negative view of censorship.

Flashback to May:

Nobody can deny that there has been a massive amount of censorship taking place in the social media arena but what some have only suspected to be true is that the government is behind it. That is, until now. The Montana Daily Gazette, one of our sister publications, first reported that Dr. Shiva Ayyadurai publicized court documents that prove the U.S. Government entered into a formal agreement with Big Tech to censor speech they did not agree with.

As Montana Daily Gazette reported, the combined federation of Big Tech companies is, effectually, a monopoly holding at least 90 percent of the current combined market share in social media. These would include such companies as YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, and other tech companies that make sharing viewpoints in the public square available to its users.

...

As reported by the Montana Gazette, the court documents focus on an invention called Twitter Trusted Partnership and Twitter Partner Support (PSP) Portal. This, according to the Gazette, "is the means and mechanism by which federal or state governments can issue a 'censorship order' to Twitter, which has agreed to comply with such orders, as the price of avoiding regulatory oversight."

....

A few key points from the court filing are:

...in 2017, in cooperation with state officials and that they created a new centralized Governing Coordinating Council (GCC) that brought together both state and federal officials to create an electronic infrastructure for surveilling speech and monitoring "Influence Operators."

...began formulating and designing the framework for silently violating the free speech rights of US persons by first characterizing speakers as "Influence Operators" (IOs) thereby fabricating a sinister connotation where none exists, as the ideological framework to justify canceling speakers who exercise their right to express their opinion

That a partnership between Big Tech and state officials created a Playbook which is described in the court filings as a "step-by-step manual on how state officials can deal with 'Influence Operators' and prescribes the Best Practices that must be followed."

The manual, according to the court filing, "promotes a unified effort that results in speed, simplicity and efficiency," and "provides all the tools that a state official would need to silence a person identified as an 'Influence Operator' for opining that a state election official has violated Federal law."

And don't forget -- FaceBook's fact-checker on Covid is itself China-linked, and naturally censors stories suggesting that the Chinese created covid-19 in the Wuhan lab.

Lead Stories -- a so-called "fact-checking" outlet partnered with both Facebook and the Chinese Communist Party-linked TikTok app -- has launched a campaign to defend Wuhan Institute of Virology collaborator Ralph Baric after The National Pulse unearthed his 2018 remarks outlining how to "make money" from pandemics.

Representing yet another conflict of interest, Lead Stories is funded in large part by Facebook, whose founder Mark Zuckerberg’s personal charity has sent six-figure grants to Baric.

As revealed by The National Pulse, the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative awarded a $433,000 grant to Baric's University of North Carolina Chapel Hill lab for coronavirus research.

One day after The National Pulse published the article revealing Baric's how "to be prepared and make money in the next pandemic" slide, Lead Stories had the article removed from Facebook.
