In the wake of the Pelosi attack
The vital strategy of every honest journalist and private citizen; advice from a reporter who's been at it for 40 years; that's me
In the wake of the Pelosi attack, the federal government and its allies are stepping up their strategy. You could call it censorship. You could call it defamation. But it’s more than that.
It’s the method of EQUATING. A equals B equals C equals D — and ABCD are all bad, and the people who are launching ABCD must be stopped and silenced.
Here’s what I mean:
Criticisms of the COVID vaccines EQUAL parents showing up at school board meetings to protest porn and transgenderism in schools EQUALS criticism of the government’s policy in the Ukraine War EQUALS climate change ‘denialism’ EQUALS criticism of Black Lives Matter EQUALS January 6th ‘insurrection’ EQUALS claiming a secret cabal is running the world EQUALS anti-Semitism EQUALS anti-immigration EQUALS MAGA people EQUALS domestic terrorism EQUALS white supremacy EQUALS violent political online rhetoric EQUALS violent attacks against our elected leaders…
And all of these are bad and anyone who falls under any ONE of these categories FALLS UNDER ALL OF THEM.
The big dot connector. The big linking. The big guilt by association. The big lie. The big con. The big smear. The big programming of the rubes and yokels.
