Tucker Carlson’s firing a hint of things to come

Op-ed views and opinions expressed are solely those of the author.

President Joe Biden’s recent plea for Americans to reject the MAGA  movement in favor of preserving democracy held more than a slight taint of hypocrisy.

To “preserve democracy” is a noble endeavor. Yet who coins the definition?

An Epoch Times article co-authored by Robert Malone and Whitney Webb defined some of the ground rules.

“For years, the censorship of information that’s inconvenient to certain powerful actors, including the federal government and Big Pharma has been steadily increasing as ‘information warfare’ has become an ever-present force in our lives,” they wrote.”Facts are rarely treated as sacred by the world’s largest and most influential media outlets but instead are treated as something to be twisted and manipulated for the benefit of their paying sponsors.”

Pharmaceutical companies account for roughly 70% of Fox News’s advertising revenue. When a prime-time broadcaster asserts that companies benefited financially from inconclusive evidence forced upon the people, it’s bad. When that same broadcaster invites a high-profile guest onto his show who corroborates this notion, it becomes problematic!

The recent COVID-19 pandemic exemplified this assertion. The narrative treated an experimental inoculation as a vaccination when it wasn’t. When inexpensive alternatives were proposed, those suggesting their use were ridiculed and chastised. When One America News brought forth a score of physicians from all corners of the country debunking mask effectiveness, they were chided as “fringe elements.”

Hundreds of thousands lost their jobs due to their refusal to take the “jab.” Men and women in the military were excused. In some cases, there were reports of harmful side effects from what was an experimental drug. In the end, COVID vaccines proved not to be a true preventative. Meanwhile, Big Pharma padded their pockets.

Most disquieting was the complicity of the mainstream media. Rather than assume their traditional role of the “watchdog,” they did their part in censoring dissenting opinions under the guise of “misinformation.”

Thus, when Tucker Carlson brought Democratic presidential candidate Robert Kennedy, Jr. on to his show, things exploded! Kennedy called out the pharmaceutical companies for profiting at the public’s expense. He also contradicted the Ukraine narrative.

“Nobody talks about this. There’s 14,000 Ukrainian civilians who have died but 300,000 troops. Russians are killing Ukrainians at a 7-to-1 to 8-to-1 ratio,” Kennedy claimed to Carlson. “They cannot sustain this. What we’re being told about this war is just not true.”

This is not what a public already questioning the cost of the war needs to hear!

As Whitney Webb phrased in the First Annual Children’s Health Defense Conference, October 2022, “The censorship hammer is being intentionally used to squeeze out those of us who would dare speak the truth, no matter how inconvenient it may be at the time.”

Those not falling in with the narrative have been described as “dissenters.” Even parents taking exception to the material being taught to their children have been called domestic terrorists!

The Biden administration’s war on domestic terror policy has made it clear that the censorship is a part of a “broader policy” of the administration as outlined.

“Enhancing faith in government and addressing the extreme polarization, fueled by misinformation and disinformation often channeled through social media platforms, can tear Americans apart and lead some to violence”

In essence, fostering trust in government while simultaneously censoring “polarizing” voices who distrust or criticize the government is a key policy goal behind the Biden administration’s domestic terrorism strategy. It insinuates that Americans not agreeing with each other is problematic and frames that disagreement as a driver of violence.

Sounds eerily reminiscent of a government forty years ago in a distant land.

A friend who spent her first 25 years in the former Soviet Union compares the Biden administration and its “police state intensity” to the U.S.S.R. under the stewardship of Yuri Andropov between 1982 and 1984.

For those unfamiliar with Soviet history, Andropov was Leonid Brezhnev’s successor as General Secretary of the Communist Party. During the mid-seventies, Andropov was applauded by Stalinist hardliners for his action against “undesirables,” often called “counter revolutionaries” and “enemies of the people.”

The Biden administration considers freedom as “above contradiction.” Those who dare question the government’s judgments are opponents of freedom and Democracy.

The Biden administration implies that such violence by those not on board with the narrative can only be thwarted if all Americans trust the government and agree with its “truths.” Any deviation from the narrative is seen as a national security threat. Non-conforming speech is labeled as violent or having a goal of violence. The result: Those in disagreement are labeled “terrorists.”

The question becomes what happens to journalists who do not conform to government-approved talking points lest they be accused of ‘inciting violence” and “terrorism?” In other words, if a journalist reports truthful information that makes the public angry at certain government institutions, are they deemed a national security threat in such a framework?

Tucker Carlson would likely say “Yes!”

Missouri Senator-elect, Eric Schmitt’s suit against the Biden administration and Big Tech’s collusion to suppress free speech may provide an answer in the upcoming months. What has unfolded during the past two years comes straight from the Soviet playbook and increasing numbers of Americans are recognizing it.
