Since the election of President Trump, America has seen the testing of a great principle of our democracy that is under assault: freedom of speech.
According to Google, the Overton Window, also known as the window of discourse, is the range of ideas tolerated in public discourse.
Conservapedia fleshes out this concept:
The Overton window is a concept in political theory which takes in the possibilities for change that are realistic in the current environment.
There are 5 steps:
1. From Unthinkable to Radical.
2. From Radical to Acceptable.
3. From Acceptable to Sensible.
4. From Sensible to Popular.
5. From Popular to Policy.
The concept of the ‘Overton Window’ is a theory created by Joseph Overton from the
Mackinac Center for Public Policy.
In a Censorship News article by Jason Vele entitled, Google head Eric Schmidt named the mastermind behind the “fake news” censorship agenda, he points out the reality of the social media giants’ plans to crush Conservative speech by way of demonetising our sites.
Just days after the election, the New York Times ran a story with the headline “Google and Facebook Take Aim at Fake News Sites.” In it, authors Nick Wingfield, Mike Isaac and Katie Benner reported that both companies made it clear that they intended on taking aim at the revenue sources of websites that they consider to be peddling “fake news.” The New York Times noted that just hours after Google announced its plan to ban fake news sites from using their online advertising service, Facebook updated the language in its Facebook Audience Network policy to include fake news sites.
The major impact of this tactic is how they punished alternative reactions to the Florida shooting false flag.
Google/YouTube, Twitter, and Facebook have PURGED several REAL NEWS channels that dare to question the “official” story regarding the recent Florida school shootings. The Ron Johnson YouTube channel was a CHRISTIAN truth news channel with 150,000 subscribers – and last week the channel was TERMINATED without warning. Jordan Sather’s Destroying the Illusion channel was also shut down. Richie from Boston is another casualty. And there are a plethora of individual videos pulled for not conforming to the latest rules of community conduct, which are being applied retroactively. Even the esteemed investigative journalist Dr. Jerome Corsi is a victim of this slash and burn policy:
Silencing opposing viewpoints is what they are doing, writes Mike Adams of Natural News:
Only one side of this “debate” is allowed to exist: the side that worships the lunatic Left’s demands that all law-abiding Americans surrender their self-defense firearms because a group of traumatized school kids were shot at by their own lunatic classmate… Online platforms that once hosted conversations and debates are now nothing more than lunatic liberal echo chambers of cognitive illiteracy combined with demanded obedience. That’s why I have now dubbed the delusional Left an “obedience cult.”
In fact, the censorship of Conservative voices by Google and YouTube is akin to the atrocities committed on history by Winston Smith in 1984.
Yet, Winston was only “modifying” the past…
This quote from 1984 sums up YouTube’s philosophy on what should and should not be allowed to exist. And if you question any of the anomalies of the Florida shooting, they’ll likely delete your channel.
Google, YouTube, Facebook, CNN, Twitter, Microsoft, Apple, Amazon…they’d like us to believe they’re the only game in town but nothing could be further from the truth. We’ll chew them up and spit them out.
We the People will stand together against the infringement of our God-given rights. We are stronger than we know.
Dana Loesch gave an incredible speech at CPAC last week, saying “we are the power” of the Conservative movement. Statists have had to adjust to us and change their algorithms because of how we’ve taken over social media.
So, in the power God has afforded us to tell the Truth, let us combine forces and retake our rights and our country. And long live the Constitution.
