Blacklists are back and the Democrats have got ’em: A leftist activist veterans group aligned closely with the Democratic Party has begun a campaign to get Fox News banned from all military bases.
The group VoteVets, which works to elect liberal veterans to public office, took specific aim at controversial Fox News personality Tucker Carlson. Mr. Carlson has been at odds with Pentagon leaders in recent months after segments in which he seemed to suggest the U.S. military has become more concerned with diversity and political correctness than winning wars.
But the VoteVets petition steered clear of those issues. Instead, it took aim at Mr. Carlson‘s ambivalent comments about COVID-19 vaccines and specifically blasted a recent segment in which the Fox host said that Democrats want to make life difficult for the unvaccinated.
Essentially, this Democratic Party political organization wants to ban on military bases the speech of anyone who might express skepticism about any policy put forth by that party.
And why not? This tactic by Democrats and their ilk — of blacklisting and silencing their opponents — has been working like a dream. They are finding that Americans are afraid of them, and are willing to meet their every demand in order to avoid being attacked themselves.
“You want someone fired? Glad to, as long as I don’t get attacked.”
“You want us to ban news organizations you don’t like? Sure, so long as I won’t be banned.”
“You want us to burn books and destroy all record of our past history? Okay, if you promise not to burn my stuff.”
With this kind of weak-kneed opposition, why shouldn’t these leftist bullies next demand the sky?
“You want to imprison your enemies? Send out death squads to kill them? Well, if you promise not to send the death squads against me who am I to argue?”
Let me pound this point again: The bullying and blacklisting is not coming from above, from the leaders of the Democratic Party, or the top management at companies like Google, Facebook, YouTube, or Twitter. It is coming from millions of people throughout the country who no longer believe in free speech or even freedom, who have closed minds to alternative ideas, and who are now willing to do anything to maintain their “safe spaces” and silence anyone who might threaten their bubble of ignorance.
If you make believe this isn’t true, then you are going to be terribly shocked when these mobs who now dominate our culture come for you.
And they will. I can promise you that. They have only begun their campaign of intolerance and hate. If the decent people who remain don’t begin standing up to them it will only get worse.
From the press release: In this ground-breaking new history of early America, historian Robert Zimmerman not only exposes the lie behind The New York Times 1619 Project that falsely claims slavery is central to the history of the United States, he also provides profound lessons about the nature of human societies, lessons important for Americans today as well as for all future settlers on Mars and elsewhere in space.
Conscious Choice: The origins of slavery in America and why it matters today and for our future in outer space
, is a riveting page-turning story that documents how slavery slowly became pervasive in the southern British colonies of North America, colonies founded by a people and culture that not only did not allow slavery but in every way were hostile to the practice.
does more however. In telling the tragic history of the Virginia colony and the rise of slavery there, Zimmerman lays out the proper path for creating healthy societies in places like the Moon and Mars.
“Zimmerman’s ground-breaking history provides every future generation the basic framework for establishing new societies on other worlds. We would be wise to heed what he says.” —Robert Zubrin, founder of founder of the Mars Society.
