Democrats sought for years to shut down Fox News.
Now Tucker Carlson is the top target.
And Tucker Carlson will be canceled if one top Democrat gets his way.
California Governor Gavin Newsom is at the vanguard of the movement on the Left to restrict so-called “hate speech” online through criminal penalties or financial sanctions against social media platforms.
In an interview with former Obama chief strategist David Axelrod on the Axe Files podcast, Newsom revealed that he spoke with Silicon Valley bigwigs who agree that government imposed censorship through speech codes was the way of the future.
“They see the rules in Europe versus the United States. They think — see things where they’re going, but I don’t — look, I got a bigger problem not with the platforms. I have a bigger problem with the people that are creating the content for these platforms and the networks that should be curating — that are not curating, that are expressing themselves similarly, not dissimilar to these platforms and weaponizing grievance and dividing this country,” Newsom stated.
Newsom added that he was specifically calling out Big Tech for giving oxygen to Fox News Channel and not acting more aggressively to censor content from hosts like Jesse Watters and Tucker Carlson.
“And yeah, I’m calling out the Murdochs and Fox. Yes, I’m calling out these platforms. Yes I’m calling out Jesse Waters. What a joke that guy is!” Newsom added.
Newsom falsely claimed Carlson was a racist.
“Listen to the way they demean people — talk down to people. They create characters, cartoon characters. Look at what this guy Tucker Carlson does every single night. The racial priming. These folks need to be called out by name,” Newsom said.
“This is a serious moment in history and people need to be a hell of a lot more serious about it. And Democrats need to wake up and not be on the damn defense on all this stuff and playing into this crap that’s coming from these Red states and get back and wake up to what’s happening,” Newsom added.
Democrats now equate speech with violence.
Since leftists consider speech violent, they believe it provides a legal path to end-run the First Amendment and allow the government to censor conservative views.
