Friday night, Tucker Carlson posed the question conservatives have been asking for some time now … are the social media giants quashing free speech?
This week, Facebook announced the banning of several individuals who they characterized as being “dangerous.” Those people include Milo Yiannopoulos, Laura Loomer, Paul Joseph Watson, Alex Jones, Paul Nehlen, and Louis Farrakhan.
“What exactly does that mean?” Carlson asked.
Talking about their removal from the Facebook platform this week, Carlson continued:
“All of them were designated dangerous individuals and banned from Facebook and from its subsidiary Instagram. Alex Jones’ company Infowars was banned as well and described as a dangerous organization. Didn’t explain exactly how. How dangerous is Infowars? Well Facebook believes it’s so dangerous that you can be banned from using the platform, Facebook, just for sharing its content unless you simultaneously denounce it. Let that penetrate, for just one moment, think about it just for a second. Mark Zuckerberg is not simply censoring opinions, he’s prescribing which political opinions you’re allowed to have. Which conversations all of us in this country can have about America.
“What we’re watching now in real time is this country become unfree. So the question is who exactly is defending us in all of this? Us who might dissent from Mark Zuckerberg’s view or think that NBC News doesn’t tell the whole truth the whole time all the time? Or don’t trust Zuckerberg to control what we think. What about us? Who’s standing up for us? Where are our leaders in Congress? Where is the White House? Nowhere. As long as big tech isn’t hassling them personally and directly and their accounts remain open, they don’t seem to care. They’re fools.”

Carlson interviewed journalist Chadwick Moore and began by saying “I don’t think anyone’s pretending anymore that this is just about Alex Jones or Paul Joseph Watson or people you’ve just sort of heard of … this is about anybody who dissents from the corporate view of what should be talked about. So why is no one defending the majority of Americans against this threat to our free speech?”
Moore point out that “there actually is one very prominent person out there who is calling for mass civil disobedience … it’s Snoop Dogg.
Dogg has “ordered all his followers to start sharing Louis Farrakhan footage and videos on Facebook and Instagram.”
“Meanwhile you have the Republican class, you have sort of a fence-sitting, conservative milquetoast conservatives who are so terrified of having their own precious accounts taken away, that they will not stand up for these people,” Moore continued.

On Thursday, the well-known rapper posted a video to Instagram shown below in which he called out Facebook, in particular for banning Farrakhan. I want to know for what?” Snoop said. “All he ever do is tell the truth. But ya’ll gone ban him though? What if we stop f**king with yall?
“I stand with him. I’m with him. Ban me motherf**ker. I’m gonna keep putting him out there. I’m gonna keep. That’s my dear brother … That ain’t right. It’s a bunch of motherf**kers ya’ll can ban, but you chose Minister Farrakhan.”
It seems the Dogg may have something right about this … that is, people have to stand shoulder to shoulder against tyranny, in whatever form it takes.
