Skip to comments.Big Tech tyranny has conservative news outlets scared to report the news: News outlets are self-censoring. Why? Because they don't want to be canceled.

At least three times during CPAC, the excellent coverage from Right Side Broadcasting Network was interrupted by disclaimers, breaking away from speeches, and even muting of interviewees. This wasn’t due to them not believing in the message. They self-censored because two topics that are taboo on Big Tech, YouTube in particular, were being discussed.
Before we detail what all went down, let’s be clear about something. I do not blame RSBN for doing what they did. This is a growing business that many people depend on. It’s not just the excellent livestreaming coverage of events pertinent to conservatives, but also families who work at the network. YouTube tyranny is a real thing so discussions of voter fraud or vaccines are surefire ways to get channels banned. I know. Our Freedom First Network channel was hit with strikes over… wait for it… talking about Covid-19 and laying out facts about massive, widespread voter fraud in the 2020 election. Now, our channel is gone.
RSBN’s biggest source of viewership and income is YouTube by far. Many of us were caught flat-footed when the Big Tech purge of conservatives began. Censorship is not the fault of the censored. We hop on our high horse and say Newsmax should have told Dominion Voting Systems where to shove their lawsuit or RSBM should just move to Rumble, but it’s easier to be bold when it isn’t our own livelihood or the livelihoods of our employees that are on the line.
Okay, that’s my prerequisite anti-rant. Now, let’s look at what was censored. Mike Lindell from MyPillow had his mic muted during an interview. And before you make the assumption as I did that he was probably talking about voter fraud, guess again. He was panning vaccines and face masks this time.
My Pillow CEO supposedly ‘Censored’ over controversial vaccine conspiracy comments but the truth as to why is more troubling
As for voter fraud, RSBM cut away from a panel claiming voter fraud happened. They didn’t do so because they don’t believe it. They did so because of the lawsuits that are popping up against media organizations who allow such claims to be made, plus the aforementioned YouTube problem. Initially, I was peeved by this move, but over the last couple of days I’ve realized my anger towards RSBN was completely misguided. Is self-censoring acceptable if it will save jobs? As ugly of a choice as it is to make, the answer is yes. It’s YouTube and Dominion and Facebook and Google and Democrats and mainstream media and everyone else who is forcing this issue who need to receive our wrath, not the networks who are unfortunately dependent on one or more of these venues that hate us.
We got into this mess because the vast majority of conservatives never though the banhammer would come down on us so hard. We thought that was for the fringe. Guess what? If you’re a conservative, you’re now considered the fringe by Big Tech.
We Are Big Fringe.
We all own our own printing press. It is called a printer. Start a local newspaper.
We have to take our eyes off national and own local news.
When Big Fringe is bigger than the never-fringers, who is fringe, really?
Censorship is a crime against humanity—whatever its form.
First they censor you, then they steal your stuff, then they kill you.
Furthers the point I’ve been making all along: Americans have accepted peaceful slavery over dangerous freedom. This is also why there will never be any type of stand made by Conservatives. Everyone is too chickenspit. They prefer keeping their incomes and stuff over standing for freedom. Every damned one of us.
I believe it was Mike Lindell that the RSBN commentators interrupted to nag their audience about wearing masks. In the commentary that accompanies the broadcast, I told them to shut up and let us hear the speakers.
Carrying the rope to their own hanging.
“...First they censor you, then they steal your stuff, then they kill you...”
So true. My Greek grandparents are from Turkey, where their people lived for thousands of years.... I mean in about 300 BC when Alexander the Great went to Asia Minor, he MET Greek speaking people, They were already there.
After WWI, the Turks under Kemal Pasha, kicked out the Greeks and Armenians.
First however, they were not permitted to speak Greek or teach their children Greek. Then their property was stolen and finally they were sent on forced marches through Turkey, to boats and kicked out of the home they had occupied for a couple thousand years.
It’s a common plan throughout history. BTW-the world sat by with their arms folded for THAT, too.
That is the chilling effect. More than one talk radio guy said
“we moved this and all details away so Facebook and YouTube can’t remove the story and put us in social media jail again.”
“Don’t make an accusation without facts (to caller), the authorities are monitoring us, you know.”
Making examples, like the old organized crime always did. Saves a lot of beatings and knifings if the Social Media demigods can just put a scare into the little people (us).
Not since the Japanese created & implemented the concept of organized "thought police" a few centuries ago has the world seen the concept implemented as efficiently and rapidly as is being done by our new communist rulers...
