Left-wing billionaire George Soros uses his vast financial resources to shape the political playing field.
But he made one sinister move to silence conservatives.
And Rand Paul told conservatives to fight back against this bone-chilling scheme of George Soros.
Since Democrats know their ideas can’t stand up to scrutiny, they’ve used every tactic available to try and silence their conservative critics.
For years, left-wing activist groups backed by George Soros have engaged in pressure campaigns to get advertisers and carriers to drop conservative news programming and shows.
The conservative news channel, Newsmax, is the fourth highest rated cable news network behind Fox, MSNBC, and CNN.
The conservative news network was dumped by DirectTV, one of the nation’s largest providers of cable television.
DirectTV called the move a “cost-cutting” measure.
But DirectTV’s treatment of other left-wing news stations revealed a double standard on how the company treated Newsmax.
“Only Fox News is left as conservative-leaning, and you have 22 liberal channels,” Newsmax CEO Chris Ruddy said. “Let me give you an example: Vice, which is a far-Left channel aimed at young millennials… they are all DirecTV, they have a tiny rating—just 20 percent of Newsmax’s lowest rating—and they get a fee [of] about what we were asking for.”
The deplatforming of Newsmax comes roughly one year after DirectTV dropped One America News Network (OANN).
Soros-funded activist groups like Media Matters have been pushing cable providers to drop OANN, Newsmax, and Fox News over their alleged roles in questioning the 2020 election and January 6 as a flimsy pretext.
Rand Paul (R-KY) urged conservatives to take their business elsewhere and cancel their DirectTV subscriptions.
“I would cancel @DIRECTV for censoring @NEWSMAX but I already canceled them for canceling @OANN,” Paul said on social media. “I guess @DIRECTV doesn’t want conservative viewers so maybe we should all just quit their services and go elsewhere.”
DirecTV plans to continue carrying 22 left-wing news channels, many of them with lower ratings than Newsmax.
Former President Donald Trump called DirectTV’s decision “disgusting” and urged his supporters to cancel DirectTV and their parent company AT&T.
“For DIRECTV to drop the very popular NEWSMAX, without explanation, will not be accepted. I, for one, will be dropping all association with AT&T and DIRECTV, and I have plenty.
This is just one of many reasons why we must WIN IN 2024!!!” Trump said.
Conservative outlets are in the crosshairs of the left-wing cancel mob as they try to silence any criticism of President Joe Biden’s failed regime.
