Have a problem with Democrat Senator Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts?
She doesn’t want you to be allowed to express it online.
Freedom of speech?
To her, it’s to be torched in the bonfire of her desire to silence anything and any person who may oppose her.
Warren has, in her zest to play to the prejudices of the extreme hard left, gone all the way to the end of the leftist dial and embraced the theories of national socialism and indeed the brand of authoritarian socialism that ruled in the Soviet Union for decades and continues to hold sway in the modern Democrat ideological homelands of Cuba and Venezuela.
Specifically, Warren said in a press release she wants to make a crime out of “disseminating false information” online and would prosecute tech giants for “false information that disempowers voters and undermines democracy.”
Who would decide what constitutes “false information” and what “disempowers and undermines?”
In her own words, “I will push for new laws that impose tough civil and criminal penalties for knowingly disseminating this kind of information, which has the explicit purpose of undermining the basic right to vote. The stakes of this election are too high — we need to fight the spread of false information that disempowers voters and undermines democracy,” Warren said. “I’ll do my part — and I’m calling on my fellow candidates and big tech companies to do their part too.”
Criminal penalties for speaking online against the likes of Warren and her ilk?
I hope I get a nice cell, one with a decent wine cellar and a walk-in humidor.
Perhaps it should be lauded that the Senator has dropped her mask and now fully and publicly supports installing national criminal penalties for opposing what Warren personally deems false and disempowering.
Even putting aside the outright fascist tone of her statements, in this era of the PC Thought Police and identitarian lunacy no doubt taking issue with any insanity the left may spread would be considered illegal and subject to prosecution.
Just how would a real republic, where people can freely voice their views, be able to operate under these strictures?
That’s just it. The Democrats fully well know one can’t.
Because a functioning republic is not what they’re interested in. Their only ambition is raw power at any cost.
