Comrades, historical past rhymes…
In his newest evaluation of the Twitter Information, a supplemental to drive dwelling the significance of what’s seen – and what was stored hidden, Matt Taibbi focuses consideration on the exercise of the Home Everlasting Choose Committee on Intelligence (HPSCI), and the way they monitored public feedback on Twitter and gave directions to the platform on what content material must be eliminated and/or managed.
Pause for a second and take into consideration that.
The Home Intelligence Committee, that’s the federal government of the US of us, assigning employees to observe Twitter dialog and take away or management public commentary. Utilizing the justification of “nationwide safety pursuits”, Adam Schiff was telling a social media platform what content material must be permitted to exist and what content material must be eliminated.
The ‘Stasi’ used to observe telephone calls and conduct concentrating on operations based mostly on intercepted communication. Within the trendy period, the Twitter Information clearly exhibit, with an unequivocal quantity of proof, that the US Authorities was/is monitoring social media content material after which dispatching FBI officers based mostly on intercepted public communication.
That is the Home Intelligence Committee doing this. That is our taxpayer cash funding this.
I actually don’t wish to write something additional on the specifics of this one. I might relatively identical to to let these information simmer in our minds as we ponder the ramifications of what’s now being outlined inside this very particular launch.
The necessity for management is a response to concern.
What precisely is it the Adam Schiff’s and Intelligence Group of the US Authorities is scared of?
Apparently, there’s a Home subcommittee about to start underneath the auspices of weaponized authorities in opposition to the folks.
I hope the members of that committee are sitting quietly alone someplace, pondering, evaluating and considering what this instance is exhibiting us.
I do know what’s there.
You understand what’s there.
None of us are pretending.
Hope will not be a technique.
