Shut Up and Sit Down
By Michael J. Lewinski – 1/21/21
George Washington once observed, “If freedom of speech is taken away, then dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep to the slaughter.” This is what the Progressive, Democratic Socialist party has in store for us. Their message to us is to sit down, shut up, listen to us, and do what we say.
There is no way dissenting voices can be given permission to articulate ideas not approved by the radical Left. There is to be no debate or appeal to reason. None whatsoever!
Most of the social media platforms ban you from their platforms or shadowban you so your friends cannot receive your messages. If you bring a Conservative idea to a conversation, they add a warning to the message that what you write promotes violence or is not truthful.
Amazon, Twitter, Facebook, Google, YouTube, and Apple collaborate to shut down free speech platforms like Parler or Gab who ban no one. The cancel culture which the Left has unleashed punish Conservatives for expressing common sense ideas.
Progressives have no answers that can refute Conservative ideas. Dennis Prager spoke about the Left’s intolerance. “Let us begin with this fact: The Left always suppresses speech. Since Vladimir Lenin and the Bolshevik Revolution in Russia in 1917, there has been no example of the Left in control and not crushing dissent.”
He went on to observe, “The Left fears dissent. And it does so for good reason. Leftism is essentially a giant balloon filled with nothing but hot air. Therefore, no matter how big the balloon – the Democratic Party, The New York Times, Yale University – all it takes is a mere pin to burst it.”
Martin Luther King, Jr. once said, “Love is the greatest force in the universe. It is the heartbeat of the moral cosmos. He who loves is a participant in the being of God.”
Progressives have only jealousy and hate in their hearts. Most are Atheists or sons of the Devil. That’s why they desire to shut down and destroy Conservatives.
