The Left’s War on the 1st Amendment Is Heating Up
We have always known that the left would tear up the 1st Amendment if they were given half a chance. They have been making their hatred for the Amendment obvious for years now. CNN is even in the process of launching a defense of the autonomous zone in Seattle because that’s just how they roll. There’s no liberal cause that is too silly for them to get behind.
Oliver Darcy is one of the many liberal reporters at CNN who is responsible for the tomfoolery. Darcy has decided to publish his own hit piece about publishers who skew conservative. All he wants to do is silence anyone who does not think like him. That’s the type of behavior that the leftists complain about when it happens in reverse.
He took direct aim at Breitbart and The Gateway Pundit, among other publications. Since these sites are willing to offer conservative viewpoints, they must be eliminated. Darcy is an Antifa sympathizer and he accuses the other sites of offering up little more than conspiracy theories and misinformation. The arguments about the autonomous zone in Seattle have started to heat up.
Says Darcy: “Right-wing websites like Breitbart and The Gateway Pundit have also pushed the narrative that armed Antifa members have begun seizing land.
“Antifa is reportedly seeking armed volunteers to take turns manning barricades and holding ground that protesters have seized within Seattle city limits,” a Wednesday Breitbart article said.
That report relied on a post from the far-right blog The Gateway Pundit, a website known for peddling misinformation and conspiracy theories.”
Left wingers like Darcy may believe that the autonomous zone is not causing any harm but they are unable to prove what they are saying. That’s why they have to silence the right. The videos and photos of armed protesters in Seattle fly in the face of the narratives that the left is trying to create. Local officials may make certain claims but they are not able to be confirmed or denied.
If you've been getting your news from right-wing media, you probably think armed militant Antifa activists have seized a section of Seattle.
But the mayor's office tells me, "City officials have not interacted with 'armed antifa militants' at this site."https://t.co/ctZiwNNCx6

That’s because they are making it up as they go along. CNN looks to punish any news outlet that offers conservative talking points without the usual bias. All they know how to do is pander to leftists. As if that were not bad enough, NBC is even getting in on the act. They both want to remove the 1st Amendment from public consciousness.
The network has contacted Google, in order to complain about conservative websites that draw their ire. The Federalist and Zero Hedge were the targets of this whining. Google decided to listen to what NBC had to say. Both websites got banned from the ad network of this search engine immediately. It’s scary to think of how quickly these types of changes are able to be made.
NBC News is facing intense backlash for apparently influencing Google to punish two conservative news sites over what was deemed offensive coverage of the George Floyd protests.
In a report published Tuesday afternoon, NBC News claimed Google “banned” The Federalist and ZeroHedge from Google Ads for “pushing unsubstantiated claims” about the Black Lives Matter movement. Google later pushed back, claiming that The Federalist “was never demonetized,” and adding, “We worked with them to address issues on their site related to the comments section.”
“We have strict publisher policies that govern the content ads can run on and explicitly prohibit derogatory content that promotes hatred, intolerance, violence or discrimination based on race from monetizing,” a Google spokesperson initially told NBC News. NBC, however, did not link to the “derogatory content” from The Federalist or ZeroHedge.
In addition, it appeared it was NBC News’ inquiry into the matter that prompted Google’s actions in the first place.
NBC openly cheered the news, too. They want conservatives to know that they do not have their back and the message has been received, loud and clear. The reporter in question thanked two different left wing activist groups for the help that they provided. Glenn Reynolds is a law professor who has decided to weigh in on the matter. He believes that NBC could be facing conspiracy charges for what they have done here.

Google cannot control the entire ad market and all they are doing is opening themselves up to major scrutiny. If conspiracy charges are filed against the network, they are not going to have much in the way of a legal defense. It’s all pretty cut and dry, to be honest. NBC should be investigated for their actions and we will not rest until they are.
Mark Levin is a Constitutional lawyer who agrees with the assessment that was provided by Reynolds. Antitrust investigations are all that stands between us and a media landscape that is completely dominated by liberal interests. FOX News caught wind of the story and they are not about to sit idly by, either. It won’t be long before we are hearing from Trump about this one.
I agree. An antitrust investigation into the potential of collusion of Comcast-NBC and Google is absolutely warranted.https://t.co/bXYZZj82IY

The left is doing everything they can to remove free speech from the national equation. If the cowards who are on the right side of the conversation do not act quickly, there is going to be no free speech left for anyone to protect. Everyone’s number comes due eventually and this is a time when action is needed.
