Reformatted, emphasis mine:
January 8, 2021. As a conservative political writer, which I’ve been for some time, Friday night had the weird feel of a surrealistic, conservative-thought-purging Kristallnacht. First and most surreal, Jack Dorsey’s Twitter permanently banning the account of the President of the United States. Not for some singular awful thing Donald Trump did, said, or tweeted — but for what he might do, say, or tweet in the future. That is profound.
For that reason, Dorsey, in all of his smug, left-wing arrogance, said, in effect, “F**k you!” to 74 million Americans who supported and voted for Trump, “You don’t matter.”
…Clearly, this was a planned, coordinated attack. Just as clearly, it was an ominous harbinger of more to come. In a word, conservatives, I’m afraid we ain’t seen nothin’, yet. As Friday evening continued to unfold, I found myself pondering the answer to one question:
Why are they so afraid of us?
Certainly, there are precedents. Lenin’s Russian Revolution and Mao’s Long March come to mind. Less historical but with similar implication, universities protesting if not banning on-campus speeches by conservative activists, such as Ben Shapiro, Ann Coulter, and others. Again, why are they so afraid of us?
From Lenin and Mao, to America’s universities, to Jack Dorsey’s Twitter and Mark Zuckerberg’s Facebook, to CNN pressuring cable carriers to drop Fox News, what are those who seek to silence the voices of others so damn afraid of?
They are afraid of us because they are afraid of the truth.
By that I mean they are afraid of the truth destroying their narratives. Isn’t that the way it’s been throughout history? The first thing a totalitarian does is eliminate a free press. That, and execute intellectuals and free-thinkers. America’s left-wing-agenda universities — and their left-wing students — desperately attempt to block free speech because conservative free speech is anathema to their left-wing agendas.
Dorsey, Zuckerberg, Google’s Sundar Pichai, and other Big Tech autocrats suppress conservative content because they view it as a threat to their support of so-called “progressivism,” which, ironically, “progressively” attempts to censor only speech it fears. CNN seeks to see Fox News removed from cable because Fox News exposes CNN lies and biases, not to mention keeps CNN and MSNBC ratings in the toilet where they belong.
While those who fear us and seek to censor us will never admit it, they respect us — in an odd, ironic, and twisted way. They respect our ability to get their way — to disrupt their narrative. If they did not, they would not work so feverishly to silence us.
