Ca Dems trys to pass law against “fake news” creates Ministry of Truth


 

For some reason I don’t think this will end well. We already have “censors” concerning social media. Now California wants to legislate the truth and chose who does this? The left has been working on this for years. They never rest.

“California’s version of the Ministry of Truth isn’t forward-thinking, it’s akin to something out of George Orwell’s dystopian novel, “1984.”

 

Earlier in February I posted this:

Southern Poverty Law Center secretly policing content for YouTube

The Southern Poverty Law Center is assisting YouTube in policing content on their platform, The Daily Caller has learned.

The left-wing nonprofit — which has more recently come under fire for labeling legitimate conservative organizations as “hate groups” — is one of the more than 100 nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) and government agencies in YouTube’s “Trusted Flaggers” program, a source with knowledge of the arrangement told TheDC.

Danger from the Patriots! LA Times warns U.S.

 

Too Orwellian to even think about. Let’s legislate this:

One of the latest legislative proposals from California aims to make government the arbiter of truth.

Senate Bill 1424 would create an advisory group on “fake news” to work with social media companies to weed out what the government deems incorrect information on the internet.

This legislation, if passed, would require California’s attorney general to create the group, consisting of “social media providers, civil liberties advocates, and First Amendment scholars,” to study and mitigate the problem of spreading false information.

According to CBS Sacramento, even the Electronic Frontier Foundation, a left-leaning nonprofit civil liberties organization, called the legislation “flawed” and “misguided.”

This bill mirrors the trend in Europe, where government commissions to police speech and the news are becoming common.

California, emboldened by a stridently progressive Legislature, is trying to bring these Orwellian fake news panels to the United States.

    Isaac Newton instructed us in classical mechanics that for every action, there is always opposed an equal reaction. Seems quite simple, actually … but then Newton never had to contend with an idiotic American left. First of all, what people call “news” isn’t new at all. It’s just a slightly modified rendition of the same old crap. Try to imagine a headline that reads POLITICIAN CAUGHT LYING. News? In any case, if there is such a thing as “news” then the opposite of this must be “fake news.” We could modify that just a bit and call it “flake news,” which is anything postulated or accepted by individuals who are educationally unqualified to read the funnies. Now as to the matter of truth … whose truth are we to believe? We need not return too far back in history to see that “government truth” is very often a blatant lie but isn’t this how government strives to control our ever-growing human population? We complicate this further by adding partisan truth (spin), which is an argument based on something less than a full measure of the facts. Do we really want to rely upon a government propaganda ministry to sort this out for us? If we do, then all the work begun by Vladimir Lenin has finally paid off.

    Oops … well look at the time; I see it’s time for another single-malt.

    Needless to say this is outrageous and unconstitutional, which is why it is starting in California. 🙂 The government deciding what is fake news and what the people should hear is frightening but as you said this is something the left has wanted for a long time.

      Of course this is outrageous. But it has also been an active topic of discussion in progressive utopias like California for decades. SF State in the 1970’s for example. This is nothing new. The Progressive New Left is just feeling emboldened enough to take off the sheep skin and show the public who they really are.

    Ministry of truth … wow. I’m glad I had a few double scotches tonight … it helps to place all of this into a proper perspective … which is that America is seriously screwed. Well, but at least we have easy access to good whiskey.

    It would save so much time, energy and money if we would just do away with the first amendment. After all consider merry olde England where one can be incarcerated for criticizing the religion of peace.Or how about this: several years back a pub on The Isle Of Mann was shut down and its owners taken away in cuffs after two gentlemen of asian persuasion while passing by heard the strains of that disgusting racist song “kung Fu fighting” wafting through the pub’s open door. The two emotional distraught asians high tailed it to the nearest constabulary and the bobbies went to the pub and arrested the bar tender and the owner for racial discrimination. Now why can’t we just suspend freedom of speech here so knowing we are all moving targets we would all just keep our traps shut. This along with the Netflix five second rule would make for a happy sanitized society. Now if only the Republican Party could be outlawed….

      A few years ago and I would have said this all was a joke…unbelievable. I hadn’t heard about the Kung Fu incident but wouldn’t surprise me.
      The Dems will never let a new supreme be installed. Mark my words…take it to the bank.. Free speech is well on its way out…..
