Barack Obama is back.
The former President launched a new political crusade.
And Barack Obama stood on stage and just issued one scary ultimatum to Americans.
Barack Obama can see that polls show Republicans are on track to sweep control of Congress in November, and that Joe Biden is likely to lose re-election in 2024.
Since Obama can’t change the polls, he wants to rig the elections by controlling what information Americans can see and read online.
That was the real goal behind Obama’s latest attack on the Constitution and American freedom.
Obama delivered a speech at Stanford demanding more online censorship of views that Democrats think makes them look bad.
Former President Obama explained that since social media giants were private companies, they held a free hand to censor views that run afoul of the Democrat Party’s narrative.
“The First Amendment is a check on the power of the state. It doesn’t apply to private companies like Facebook and Twitter,” Obama stated.
Obama told his audience that the current censorship regime – which he euphemistically described as “content moderation” – did not suppress enough content.
“While content moderation can limit the distribution of clearly dangerous content, it doesn’t go far enough,” Obama continued.
Obama then compared Trump supporters like Steve Bannon to Russian President Vladimir Putin, claiming anyone in America who expressed views in opposition to the dominant left-wing narrative was the equivalent of a murderous Russian dictator.
“People like Putin and Steve Bannon for that matter understand it’s not necessary for people to believe disinformation in order to weaken democratic institutions, you just have to flood the public square with enough raw sewage,” Obama fumed.
Obama then argued that so-called “fact checkers” – all of whom are liberal ideologues and partisans – can be trusted to label everything Democrats don’t like as lies, and to also label their own lies as either opinions or honest mistakes.
“That doesn’t mean some things aren’t truer than others. Or that we can’t draw lines between opinions, facts, honest mistakes, intentional deceptions,” Obama stated.
Obama claimed his famous lie about, “if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor” – which was central to Obamacare’s passage – was an example of an honest mistake that did not deserve censorship.
The political pendulum swung dramatically against Democrats ever since Joe Biden took office.
And rather than recalibrate their failed policies in a hope to win more votes, Barack Obama pressured the Big Tech overlords to impose a harsher censorship regiment on their platforms to crackdown on information that dissents from the Democrat Party’s talking points.
