It’s going to get worse.
Conservative groups have been subjected to a shocking level of political intimidation during the Obama years. Imagine what it’ll be like under the back alley tactics of the Clintons.
Imagine what it’ll be like if Democrats regain control of the Senate with the likes of Chuck Schumer, Elizabeth Warren, and Bernie Sanders controlling the levers of power.
Think I’m joking? Watch Prager University’s video above presented by the Wall Street Journal’s Kimberly Strassel. If you’re having a hard time justifying a vote for Donald Trump, this video may soften you up.
Ms. Strassel presents three tactics used by the left to intimidate conservatives into submission: 1. Harrass; 2. Investigate and prosecute; and 3. Blackmail.
She leaves out their fourth tactic: censor.
This takes subtle forms by their allies in the media, most notably in what they refuse to cover in their news reports. A couple of glaring examples: the news blackout on the Kermit Gosnell House of Horrors a few years ago, and last year’s revelation that Planned Parenthood enriched their coffers by peddling fetal body parts.
It takes a different form on social media, such as Youtube, which is owned by Google. They placed the following videos, as described by Dennis Prager, on the restricted list, you know, the equivalent of porn:
–Two videos on race: “Are The Police Racist?” and “Don’t Judge Blacks Differently.”
–Six videos on Islam: “What ISIS Wants,” “Why Don’t Feminists Fight for Muslim Women?” “Islamic Terror: What Muslim Americans Can Do,” “Pakistan: Can Sharia and Freedom Coexist?” “Radical Islam: The Most Dangerous Ideology” and “Why Do People Become Islamic Extremists?”
–Two videos on abortion (the only two offered): “Who’s More Pro-Choice: Europe or America?” and “The Most Important Question About Abortion.”
–Two videos on Israel: “Israel: The World’s Most Moral Army” and “Israel’s Legal Founding” (the latter video, presented by Harvard professor Alan Dershowitz, was reinstated after much publicity).
–Three videos on America: “Why Did America Fight the Korean War?” “Did Bush Lie About Iraq?” and “What is the University Diversity Scam?”
–One on politics: “Who NOT to Vote For.”
–And one on men and women: “He Wants You” (a video I present about men and women).
These videos scrape up against liberal theology on issues of child sacrifice (human abortion); American exceptionalism; and Israel.
Liberals do view conservative positions on these subjects as pornographic. They have become increasingly comfortable, no, make that brazen, in restricting conservative free speech on these subjects.
Under the new Clinton administration, it will go from bad to worse.
