OPINION: Big Tech Deploys 1930’s Tactics to Cleanse Social Media of Conservatives

Before you read my commentary I want to strongly urge you to sign up for my free newsletter. It’s your only life line to conservative news and commentary. We can no longer rely on social media. Click here to subscribe.

I think there’s a bit of confusion over the meaning of the First Amendment. Twitter has every right to decide who uses their platform. So does Facebook. And Google. Whoever pays the mortgage gets to decide the rules.

I own a broadcast media company. And just like Twitter and Facebook I get to decide who has a voice on my platforms.

Unlike Big Tech, I actually cherish free speech. I believe in spirited debate. And I believe in the free exchange of ideas.

That’s why this rock-solid constitutionalist conservative permits liberals to host shows on my platform.

URGENT: Social media is SHUTTING DOWN Conservative content. Many of you have complained that you never see our content in your news feeds. There’s only one way to fight back — and that’s by subscribing to my FREE weekly newsletter. Click here.

We have rules governing foul language, but otherwise you can say what you want to say on my pages.

And why is that? It’s because I’m confident in my beliefs and I’m a staunch defender of the United States Constitution.

It’s troubling that Big Tech has declared war on Conservatives. The purging of Trump supporters over the weekend should alarm every freedom-loving American.

But what should be of even greater concern is the Democrats and “Woke Millennial Christians” who are encouraging this sort of public political flogging.

It’s not about reconciliation, it’s about retribution.


Big Tech has every right to decide what information you receive on their platforms. They have a right to determine who gets a platform and who does not. They get to determine who has a voice and who is silenced.

It’s not the first time in world history that authors and artists and political pundits have been silenced. I would encourage you to examine what happened in 1930’s Germany.

And just in case you think this is hyperbole, the political director of ABC News literally called for the cleansing of Trump supporters – a tweet he later deleted.

But, still. He said.

What happened at the U.S. Capitol was an attack on the very foundation of America. Those responsible should face the stiffest penalty under the law.

But to suggest that every conservative and every Christian conservative in the nation bears responsibility is itself criminal.

We called to be happy warriors – defending freedom guided by our faith in Almighty God.

Vice President-elect Joe Biden told us darkness was coming to America. Believe it.

There is no doubt in my mind that on January 20th our nation will be less free. In the coming years Christians and Conservatives will be the target of relentless attacks.

They have already announced their intentions to declare an all-out war on the traditional American family. The Democrats will seek to shut down our businesses and our church houses.

If you are a follower of Almighty God, you need to prepare for the coming days of persecution.

But as Christians we must be courageous — knowing that Light dispels the darkness. And one day morning will return to America.
