Joe Biden at Department of Defense, February 10, 2021 It wasn’t a speech. It was theater, the likes of which you and I have never seen in America. It was theater of the absurd, meaning absurdly extremist, the most extremist political speech I have ever heard from an American president. I’d wager it was the most extremist ever delivered. Yet it was theater, lit in red, short on facts but (as theater is wont to be) clothed in images. It was dangerously extremist drama meant to convey that Joe Biden’s opponents are dangerous extremists.
The power of American conservatives lies mostly in our numbers. The power of the left lies mostly in its ability to control language, which it does via media and educational institutions. This is what Joe Biden was doing last night: managing language (and mangling it). He used his bully red pulpit to label Trump supporters (“MAGA Republicans,” he called us, as if there’s an actual group by that name) as “extremists,” at least four times by my count; as dangerous to democracy (six times), dangerous to elections (uncounted numbers of times), and of course dangerous to America itself (the theme throughout).
More than once he called us violent, conveniently overlooking the Democrats’ summer of 2020. His language peaked at the phrase, “a dagger at the throat of democracy.”
It’s wrong. It’s absurd. And the media will support him in it.
They are used to wielding this power. The CNN headline says “Biden delivers stark warning about US democracy.” No, CNN. This was no “stark warning”! If the left’s daily deployment of language is like a series of grenades tossed at their opponents, this was more like the Fat Man dropped on Hiroshima. And like nearly everything else the left does with language, it was fully dependent on distorted vocabulary. […]
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!
