I like Crowder and I’ll have to check that episode out. I’ve been listening to Dan Carlin’s new Hardcore History on my commute this week. I first heard about this bit from Mike Rowe.
As much as I liked hearing a mainstream comedian joke about reality, the entire affair struck me as a contrived exercise to let the air out of the woke crowd featuring someone the wokesters generally consider to be one of their own.
That’s not necessarily a bad thing, but it is a sad thing.
As I alluded to, we CANNOT forget that this same bit would have gotten you banned from most social media a year ago. If anyone has any doubts about the good intentions of social media information gatekeepers, let this example illustrate the fact that they are nothing more than small minded hacks for the Democrats.
If you believe the intentions behind this censorship were good, we at least know that their judgement is absolutely abysmal. Nobody should have been banned for discussing this or any other topic.
More and more is trickling out that demonstrates that the establishment reaction to Trump was far, far worse than anything Trump ever did. The draconian restrictions on speech imposed by social media in behalf of the Democrats are an affront to free expression. They must go.
Let us reflect on all of the fact free media narratives everyone who hated Trump took at face value and ridiculed and slandered anyone who dared question them. People were banned, canceled, called racist and fascist for even questioning the latest 5 minutes of hate.
Trump was right. Section 230 needs new language. We cannot tolerate a Ministry of Truth in any shape or form.
I chose the title I did because Jon Stewart seems to be pulling the pendulum back to the middle once again, just like he did during the Bush 43 era. Now he just needs to hit the gas a little harder.
He’s late to the party, but better late than never.
