Skip to comments.Americans forced underground Exclusive: Sean Harshey, in wake of Big Tech crackdown, advises readers to keep their heads down

In just over two years, suppression of political speech online has grown from Google's purge of conservative employees and the subsequent collusion between tech companies to simultaneously ban commentator Alex Jones from their platforms, to the point where these companies are emboldened not only to ban the president of the United States from social media, but official campaign websites, financial services – and even his email companies are refusing service. In the past week, Twitter removed over 70,000 conservative accounts, and Facebook suspended former Texas congressman and presidential candidate Ron Paul after he wrote a column criticizing tech censorship.
In a remarkable development, the American Civil Liberties Union has weighed in by sounding the alarm over the "unchecked power to remove people from platforms that have become indispensable for the speech of billions."
Americans are concerned things will get worse. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer called on airlines to put political opponents on terrorist no-fly lists; an attorney for the Public Broadcasting System was caught on tape discussing seizing children from Republicans and sending them to 'reeducation camps'; and large corporations are openly targeting Republican members of Congress for voting or debating against their agenda.

Swear allegiance to the flag
Whatever flag they offer
Never hint at what you really feel
Teach the children quietly
For some day sons and daughters
Will rise up and fight while we stood still
If we keep our heads down it will not go well.
Peace is not so valuable that it should be bought at the price of loss of liberty.
We just have to become more subtle and stealth about it.
That’s how the Left did it, until the time when they didn’t have to.
“And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family?
Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand?...
The Organs would very quickly have suffered a shortage of officers and transport and, notwithstanding all of Stalin’s thirst, the cursed machine would have ground to a halt! If...if...
We didn’t love freedom enough. And even more – we had no awareness of the real situation.... We purely and simply deserved everything that happened afterward.”
Aleksandr I. Solzhenitsyn , The Gulag Archipelago 1918–1956
Exactly right. I would rather die while fighting on my feet than living on my knees.
Anyone who advocates for keeping our heads down and keeping the peace can shove it right up their asses. Our Founding Fathers risked EVERYTHING for our freedom.
That’s how I read it as well. Below the radar so to speak.
With no vote or voice there is only violence or submission.
Favorite song from the 80s
So right-But for the ACLU-we would not be here!
Keeping their heads down, I’m pretty sure, is what led to the Nazi death camps being filled with Jews. While keeping your head down, you might as well kiss your butt goodbye while you’re down there.
Hey now. Give the splc some credit too. Sadly, the majority of the assclown residents of this country have ZERO clue how well they have it.
While major media spent all of 2020 praising violent protests and demonizing police for daring to interfere with rioters
laying siege for months against federal courthouses and other buildings, looting businesses, tearing down monuments, erecting “autonomous zones” and assaulting people attending speeches or political rallies,
the same media flipped 180 degrees in their narrative last week
Actually, those advocating peace under such terms have already shoved their heads up their asses.
The implication of major media now is that Capitol Police officers displayed racism in not killing more pro-Trump demonstrators, because they would have done so if the crowd were primarily African Americans.
In reality, Capitol Police knelt in solidarity with BLM protesters, even as significant areas of Washington were set on fire, monuments and other public property was damaged or destroyed, and a 200-year-old church was burned. During attacks on the White House, 60 Secret Service agents were injured with not a single shot fired at protesters.
No submission. No justice, no peace. Death to the Stalinazi Satanists who have stolen our nation.
“the same media flipped 180 degrees in their narrative last week”
A hallmark of D’rats, progressives, women, leftists and communists.
The truth changes as needed to suit their goals. Nothing new.
You’re right, and also, they have zero clue how long (if EVER) it will be, before they regain any opportunities to move forward and succeed on their own.
Whole swaths of American society have been set back decades in their personal, financial, political, educational and social well-being.
I am sure the majority can’t envision just how certainly and totally they have been HAD!!
based on the premise they have no control over the content posted on their platforms.
They are simultaneously suspending and banning users for content, while demanding continued legal immunity because, they claim, they cannot control content.
Likewise, tech giants also destroyed the Parler social media site on the premise Parler is responsible for the speech of its users.
Note my tag line. Just sayin’. :-)
