The Morning Report - 4/27/22

Good morning, kids. Wednesday and the reaction to Elon Musk's takeover of Twitter continues to top the links, and I think for good reason. Getting beyond Musk's somewhat checkered résumé as a businessman (big fan of SpaceX, Tesla and all the other projects I'm not so sanguine about) which earned me criticism yesterday appropriately enough on Twitter, the reaction from the propaganda pimps, media gatekeepers and the Junta is telling. Free speech and the free exchange of ideas is one of the foundational principles of this nation and society. At least, such as it was, or was intended. The big newspapers, followed on by radio and television decided which stories were news and just as importantly which were not. Plus the way in which those stories were reported influenced the way Americans were supposed to think, feel and vote.

The emergence of talk radio, particularly Rush Limbaugh of blessed memory, might have cracked open the door, but the internet kicked it in, and took down the frame and the whole damned wall with it. One of the tired old bromides hurled at Limbaugh and others is that all they do is tell millions of people what to think. Forgetting that it's insulting, it's an incredibly fatal conceit on the part of the critics. Rush and his colleagues didn't tell people what to think; they merely reflected what millions of people were already thinking, and had been thinking for years, yet never had a voice to express those thoughts. That's why his audience grew by leaps and bounds for 33 consecutive years and why Leftwing imitators like Air America flopped. Well at least Randi Rhodes and Al Franken can breathe a sigh of relief since their fiasco has been supplanted by CNN+.

Right at the start of the last episode of CutJibNewsletter Speaks!, John Hayward, f/k/a "Doc Zero" marveled at the beginnings of the blogosphere, where writers and pundits had a space to gather, comment, debate and provide a forum for the free-flowing exchange of ideas: ideas of course that ran contra to what was being pimped on the big three networks, The NY Times and WaPo. He also lamented how social media as well as Big Brother big tech put a huge damper on all of that, especially in the wake of the 2004 election where the real journalists exposed key propagandist Dan Rather and his attempt to sabotage George Bush with the TANG fake news. Stay tuned for Russian Collusion and Pee-Pee-Gate.

Beyond the free-flowing exchange of "dangerous" ideas and opinion, the organizational platform by which like-minded yet heretofore isolated individuals could unite presented the obvious existential threat to the Democrat-Left. And the rest is history. But it's a history that is still being written with Musk's acquisition of Twitter. Let me state that Elon Musk by himself is not the savior of free speech nor is Twitter on its own the, or even a key crucial platform that by itself is the main conduit of information/communication. But, again, it's the reaction to it from the Left that is telling.

Looking at the 2020 election, there's no way in hell that Sponge Brain Square Depends Joey got 81 million legitimate votes. But for sure, he did get millions. The 9:00PM swing district mass ballot dumping notwithstanding, how many legitimate Biden voters might have stayed home (they wouldn't have voted for Trump for sure) had Twitter and all of social media along with the rest of the mainstream agitprop Democrat house organs not defamed, ridiculed or outright spiked the NY Post's bombshell story about the Hunter laptop -- the same story that 18 months later they suddenly have declared to be true, albeit buried somewhere in the middle of the papers in tiny type?

New incoming Twitter boss Elon Musk responded to one of the most controversial aspects of the 2020 presidential election on Tuesday after the company unanimously approved his offer to acquire the social media platform for $44 billion.

Musk weighed in on Twitter’s decision to censor an explosive story that was published by the New York Post about then-Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, and a laptop that purportedly belongs to Hunter that is filled with content that was problematic for his father’s campaign.

“Vijaya Gadde, the top censorship advocate at Twitter who famously gaslit the world on Joe Rogan’s podcast and censored the Hunter Biden laptop story, is very upset about the @elonmusk takeover,” political commentator Saagar Enjeti wrote on Twitter.

Musk responded a short time later, writing: “Suspending the Twitter account of a major news organization for publishing a truthful story was obviously incredibly inappropriate.”

Again, had the story not been embargoed, would enough legitimate Biden voters been dissuaded from voting? A recent poll showed that 16% of Biden voters would not have pulled the lever for him. Would it have been enough to have overcome the steal is an imponderable but in any case it's all water under the bridge. What is important now is that for whatever reason Elon Musk is now in the forefront of the free speech restoration movement in this country. As such, he has painted a giant target on his forehead, and I mean that in both the literal and figurative sense given who and what we are dealing with.

Beyond the avenues of speech is the very nature of speech itself. Who controls it, who shapes it, who gets to decide what is and what is not appropriate is the ultimate weapon.

This tyranny of minorities has long since come to define the Democrat coalition which knits together single-issue victimhood voters whose pet issue, whether it’s police shootings, green energy, racial justice, men pretending they’re women, or the right of teachers to sexually indoctrinate kindergartners against the wishes of their parents, must take precedence.

That is why the Biden [junta] will fight for an otherwise unpopular mask mandate.

Democrat political authority comes from the moral authority of defending oppressed minorities. The old Democrat party which asserted that it represented an oppressed majority being kept down by men of wealth has made way for a coalition of increasingly implausible minorities.

That’s the wide gap between the party of Jackson and of Obama. And it’s Obama’s party now.

Beyond the racial minorities of the civil rights movement, the moral minority consists of wealthy white elites, their sexual fetishes, cultural obsessions, and neurotic tics. Masking is just the latest neurotic tic that the decadent element that makes up its ruling base demands of all of us.

From police defunding to mandatory masking to men roleplaying as women, the outré demands are a minority even within the Democrat coalition. But the minority of minorities, by banding together, take something that only 2% of the country might want and turn it into something that the 31% of Americans who identify as Democrats are obligated to support on the party line.

And if the Democrats win, the will of the 2% is ruthlessly imposed on the 98%. . .

. . . Morality requires universally agreed on values which moral minorities attack at every turn. The great effort to transform the existence of moral minorities into its own moral authority through intersectionality requires unsustainable amounts of messaging and outright intimidation. Cancel culture terrorizes people into not speaking or even thinking for fear they’ll run afoul of constantly changing codes that no one except their cultural oppressors can even keep track of.

Totalitarian states deploy mass propaganda like this either at the height of enthusiasm for their revolutions or at their insecure decline when everyone is starting to lose faith in the revolution. And it’s been a generation since even the faithful believe in the cause rather than the anti-cause characterized by a rotating cast of conservative hate objects in the media and social media. . .

. . . How can you do class warfare when you’ve become a movement of billionaires whose supreme causes are electric cars that cost more than the average annual income, the sexual fetishes of wealthy men, and the fussiness of remote workers who don’t like being around other people?

It’s getting increasingly hard to disguise the fact that leftist revolutions aren’t about liberating the majority, but about enslaving it to the cultural obsessions of a tiny minority.

You can only dress up the tyranny of an upper class in oppressed drag for so long.

The moral minorities aren’t out to liberate anyone, including themselves, but to force everyone to use the words they want, to eat and dress like them, and to live like them.

There’s a leftist term for that, it isn’t revolution or liberation: it’s colonialism.

When 2% of the country gets to tell everyone else how to live, that’s true oppression.

It's easy to see why Leftists are in absolute freakout mode over Elon Musk and Twitter. If Musk and his new executives decide to allow Trump, Tucker Carlson, Libs of TikTok and everyone else who was muzzled by Vajajay Grabber or whatever the hell the weepy censor calls herself, that's disastrous for the Left. And, as Daniel Greenfield points out, if they are indeed 2% of the thought/political leadership of this country which represents maybe a third of the total population, you can see why they are rushing to flood the country with tens of millions more illiterate peasants from south of the border.

That said, has anyone asked them why they want to come to a country where their children would be turned into sex slaves or suffer genital disfigurement via hormones or surgery? Meh, too many of them are doing that already as we have seen. Cue Titty Caca Cortez crying in front of the chain link fence.
