As is common with Hillary Clinton, she cannot let sleeping dogs lie. And nearly a month of being out of the limelight, she has once again come out of the woodwork with her claims.
In a speech honoring the retirement of Senate Minority Leader Harry M. Reid (D-NV), the twice unsuccessful presidential candidate essentially called for both governmental and private sector censorship of whatever they decide is “fake news.”
Specifically, Hillary let her censorship plan slip when she said, “non-partisan legislation is making its way through Congress to boost the governments response to foreign propaganda and Silicon Valley is starting to grapple with the challenge and threat of false news.”
Like in many Hillary Clinton speeches, she said a lot of words that have muddled meanings. While you could interpret her statements generously and say she’s simply calling for lies to be censored, in fact she has jumped over the heart of the issue.
Who gets to decide what the truth is? I think it should be the American people, not the government, and not Facebook. Hillary Clinton doesn’t think that issue is even up for debate.
Besides, Hillary Clinton is one of the biggest offenders of this crime of false news, and had an army of reporters at her beck and call to make her look better than Donald Trump and was even slid answers to questions to her during debates.
In the video she says “that so-called fake news can have real-world consequences,” claiming that the present wasn’t the time for politics. “Lives are at risk, lives of ordinary people just trying to go about their days, to do their jobs, contribute to their communities,” Hillary claimed.
Which is frankly ironic, because fake news does have consequences. Because of the mainstream media, who were in Hillary’s pocket the entire election, many Americans believe that Donald Trump is a racist, sexist, homophobe, and in reality he isn’t. Still, people are rioting in the streets and attacking Trump supporters. They have caused deep division in America.
The media has already shown that it is completely biased. But could it become even more censored? Would the many examples of Trump being inclusive and generous have been censored if Hillary Clinton had her way? It seems unlikely she will get her way, given that Hillary Clinton did not win the election over Donald Trump. We dodged a bullet there.
Clinton has also said that “[i]t’s imperative that leaders in both the private sector and the public sector step up to protect our democracy and innocent lives.”
With Clinton stepping up after a month of absence, urging Congress and the private sector to act, it’s unclear if her calls and instructions will be followed. Hopefully they won’t, because nothing good comes from the corrupt mind of Hillary Clinton. But one thing is for certain, censorship is an attack on our right to freedom of speech. We need to fight censorship at every turn.LIKE our Facebook page: SourcesNews
