The comments from White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki aren’t unbelievable. They are very believable. Too believable, really. They are exactly the kind of totalitarian double-speak we have come to expect from today’s political left leadership. It is obvious that they have taken Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s edict to heart that too many people are interested in being, “factually” correct instead of being “morally right,” even when espousing the most debased morality.
Psaki admitted to the White House press corps that the Biden Administration is working with Facebook (and other social media) to flag “misinformation” on Covid-19. (Misinformation is the new buzzword for information the political left does not want posted. Said another way, it’s information that the political left doesn’t believe you have the right to post. Now certainly, people can/have/do lie on social media, but the question is should the federal government be watching your posts and then censoring them for “public good?”)
Not only did Psaki admit to working with Facebook to flag “misinformation,” she doubled down, saying that someone who has been banned on one platform should be banned on all platforms:
Understand what Psaki has said here. “Social Media companies should collude to ensure that certain people don’t have a voice, and they should do so at the behest of the US government.” Here’s another translation: That’s a nice social media company you’ve got there. It would be a shame if something happened to it! (Cue theme song to The Sopranos.)
