The White House is escalating its attack on First Amendment Americans’ freedom of speech by increasing pressure on Big Tech platforms to suppress and censor critics of their policies.
On Monday, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki issued a veiled threat to digital platforms to do more to call out “misinformation” and promote “correct” information. corpse”.
“Spotify is issuing advisory warnings about Covid-19 related episodes,” a reporter asked Psaki. “Whether the White House and the administration think this is a satisfactory step or do you think companies like Spotify should go further, you know, just being a trademark on their voice, do it yourself. – you know, check this out. You know, there’s more research than you can look at, you know scientific research. ”
“Sure.” She speaks. “Well, last July, as you probably know, but the general surgeon also took the unprecedented step of issuing an advisory on the risk of misinformation and public health, here it is. a very important step and admit that he talked about the role of social media platforms. Yes.”
“So our hope is that all the major tech platforms and all major news sources on that matter take responsibility and take precautions to ensure that the American people have access to genuine information. about something as important as Covid-19,” she continued. “That certainly includes Spotify. So this disclaimer, it’s a positive step, but we want every platform to continue to do more to eliminate misinformation while enhancing accuracy. ”
“I mean look at the facts right?” she asked.
Consider the facts: The lying Biden administration will have no federal mandateit lies that vaccines’stop the spread‘it lied that effective mask missionit lied that door lock worksit lies that vaccinated immunity is superior natural immunityit lies that vaccines have no side effectsit lied that ivermectin has no antiviral propertiesit lied about Castleit lies that the virus is a significant threat for children, it lie many times — and the minions of Big Tech took every step to suppress the correct information that today’s literate Americans know to be true.
Jen Psaki’s Warning to Big Tech Platforms – under Article 230 do not have the role of “editor” as they have a responsibility to protect – an unmistakable warning of dissent under the guise of combating “misinformation”. The simple fact is that both the US government and its politicians are among the most serious violators on this matter, and indeed, their abuse of power has caused great harm. than.
Surgeon General Vivek Murthy even appeared on “Morning Joe” in January to subtly pressure Spotify to ban Joe Rogan, who has already amassed more than ten million listeners by interviewing voices highly respected speakers who have criticized the government’s Covid policy response. Notable critics of these include Dr Robert Malone, who holds multiple patents on mRNA technology related to the Covid ‘vaccine’, and Dr Peter McCullough, a specialist health researcher cardiovascular health and medical science.
“Do you think the best way to push back against COVID misinformation continues to push, whether it’s on Joe Rogan’s podcast or all over Facebook?” Murthy was asked.
“We can have the best science, we can have the best expertise in public health. “People have the right to make their own decisions, but they also have the right to accurate information to make those decisions,” says Murthy. ”
The “right to accurate information” is a rhetorical phrase implying that the government should act as an arbiter of “facts” and “science,” which necessarily requires a public statement. brief and therefore, Americans are able to hold their government accountable. This both violates freedom of expression and renders democratic processes irrelevant in the United States.
Tom Fitton, president of legal watchdog Jud Judge Watch, didn’t misunderstand Psaki’s potential threat:
Fitton alleges that the Press Secretary, acting as the president’s spokesman, violated Joe Rogan’s civil rights.
The United States government cannot legally pressure private companies, civic organizations, educational institutions, or citizens to engage in activities that violate Americans’ civil rights. While many believe that the Big Tech platforms can only fulfill the wishes of power brokers in the government, the impact freedom of speech be considered legally the same like the government does.
Spotify, however, is ahead of Bireject the bullies of the government, at least with the result that it will not succumb to outright censorship. It will label podcasts and news content with labels directing people to get government information if they choose.
Thus, Neil Young and Joni Mitchell and Nils Lofgren and nameless crowd Creators who have embraced the controversy to signal (and draw attention to themselves) can give it all they like: They’re just making Spotify stronger. The essence of Spotify’s business is to give users a choice about what they want to listen to.
Apparently, they were listening to Joe Rogan, not them. That’s why they couldn’t stand it and wanted to shut him down.
But we are all Joe Rogan. If the US government and Big Tech can shut down Joe Rogan, like they have silenced countless others, who can’t?
