The events of January 6, 2021 was not a particularly egregious attack on democracy.
January 6 was exceptional because it flipped the norm in our politics on its head: compared to the lawless Left, the Right in this country is well-behaved, perhaps to a fault. Conservatives have shown extraordinary forbearance over the years all while having their faces rubbed in the mud by our political and cultural elites. When the Capitol protest turned to riot, the Right snapped. Frustration with a rigged game had reached a breaking-point.
At the forefront, of course, were grievances concerning the presidential election. Many, although not all, of the Capitol protesters’ grievances were perfectly legitimate. Election laws had been changed, or “fortified” as Time magazine would later boast, without going through proper legal channels. The people were denied, for the first time in the nation’s history, timely and transparent results.
While we have heard again and again that the election was “free and fair” (and anyone who disagrees is a Nazi, obviously), it was hardly normal for the media and “intelligence community” to quash a major scandal about a presidential candidate’s son at the 11th hour. The Hunter Biden story is only just beginning to receive a fraction of the attention it warrants.
What is the lesson here? That the people must acquiesce to having their elections interfered with by propaganda artists in the news media? Is that what “democracy” means?
What of the Black Lives Matter uprising of 2020? Was that just normal democracy stuff, too? The “mostly peaceful” riots have disappeared down the media’s memory hole, which is odd because they were much more extensive, longer lasting, and destructive to human lives and property than January 6. It’s easy to forget now, but the BLM rioters torched a police station . Sounds a little insurrection-y, no? Two […]
Will America-First News Outlets Make it to 2023?
Things are looking grim for conservative and populist news sites.
There’s something happening behind the scenes at several popular conservative news outlets. 2021 was bad, but 2022 is proving to be disastrous for news sites that aren’t “playing ball” with the corporate media narrative. It’s being said that advertisers are cracking down, forcing some of the biggest ad networks like Google and Yahoo to pull their inventory from conservative outlets. This has had two major effects. First, it has cooled most conservative outlets from discussing “taboo” topics like Pandemic Panic Theater, voter fraud, or The Great Reset. Second, it has isolated those ad networks that aren’t playing ball.
Certain topics are anathema for most ad networks. Speaking out against vaccines or vaccine mandates is a certain path to being demonetized. Highlighting voter fraud in the 2020 and future elections is another instant advertising death penalty. Throw in truthful stories about climate change hysteria, Critical Race Theory, and the border crisis and it’s easy to understand how difficult it is for America-First news outlets to spread the facts, share conservative opinions, and still pay the bills.
Without naming names, I have been told of several news outlets who have been forced to either consolidate with larger organizations or who have backed down on covering certain topics out of fear of being “canceled” by the ad networks. I get it. This is a business for many of us and it’s not very profitable. Those of us who do this for a living are often barely squeaking by, so loss of additional revenue can often mean being forced to make cuts. That means not being able to cover the topics properly. Its a Catch-22: Tell the truth and lose the money necessary to keep telling the truth, or avoid the truth and make enough money to survive. Those who have chosen survival simply aren’t able to spread the truth properly.
We will never avoid the truth. The Lord will provide if it is His will. Our job is simply to share the facts, spread the Gospel, and educate as many Americans as possible while exposing the forces of evil.
To those who have the means, we ask that you please donate. We have options available now, but there is no telling when those options will cancel us. We have our GivingFuel page. There have been many who have been canceled by PayPal, but for now it’s still an option. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to get the truth to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
Thank you, and God Bless!
