Tucker Carlson: Your private conversations will be controlled by the DNC

'Tucker Carlson Tonight' host sounds off on Democrats' censorship push on private speech, vaccine 'misinformation'

Last March, as the first big clusters of Coronavirus cases, started to appear in this country, media executives in Silicon Valley coordinated with officials in Washington to determine how much the public was allowed to know about the growing epidemic that was killing them.

Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook emailed Tony Fauci at NIH, to assure him that Facebook users would see only Tony Fauci’s approved guidance on Covid-19. Twitter and Google effectively did the same.

Twitter and Google eliminated any post that deviated from Washington’s official line. In many cases, they censored information from frontline physicians that was both medically sound—it was the science--and potentially lifesaving. Posts about treatments for example were downplayed. They have never apologized for this, they probably never will.

Historians will assess it. They will likely record the early days of COVID-19 as a turning point in our society — an unprecedented assault on our most basic civil liberties, that somehow very few people seemed to notice when it first started happening. The usual stooges and think tank libertarians assured us at the time none of it was a big deal. Soulless multinational media monopolies censoring essential medical information? No problem. That’s how the free market works. Build your own Google if you don’t like it. Start your own NIH. And anyway, in private you can still say what you want. You’re still free. It’s not like this is North Korea. So calm down, conspiracy nut. You’re starting to sound like Alex Jones. Most of obeyed, we dutifully calmed down, and went back to Netflix.

We shouldn’t have. Today we learned the Biden administration considers censorship is applicable to private speech as well. What you say in private, when you’re alone with your phone, you won’t be able to say or read what you want because the DNC plans to control—and apparently have the ability to control—the flow the information you receive on your phone. Nothing that questions official regime policy will reach you. According to a report in Politico — and believe it or not, we're quoting here directly:

"Biden allied groups, including the Democratic National Committee, are planning to engage fact-checkers more aggressively, and work with SMS carriers to dispel misinformation about vaccines that is sent over social media and text messages."

We'll say that again because it’s a sentence we never thought we’d see written in English: The DNC is planning to censor any quote, "misinformation about vaccines" that you receive privately over text message. What does "misinformation" mean? It’s not the same as false information, as factually inaccurate information. Misinformation can be factually true. In fact, it very often is factually true. That’s why they’re angry about it.

Misinformation is anything the Biden administration doesn’t want you to know — including, for example, how effective the Covid vaccines actually are, and what the potential side effects from them might be from taking them.

Let’s say you’re interested in finding out that information and looked it up from the administration’s own official websites, starting with the VAERS database. You’re no longer allowed to text what you find on their database to other people in this country—the country you were born in. Your private conversations will be controlled by the DNC. Is that the picture of a free country?

Looks like we should have worried about civil liberties last year when all this started. "It’s a global health emergency. We have no choice. Things will go back to normal when it ends." But will they go back to normal? If the government can ban discussion of the drug they’re making you take, what can’t they do? And by the way, are they doing this now, expanding censorship on the conversation about the pandemic as the pandemic recedes? The covid vaccines have been around for more than seven months. Pretty much everyone who wants a shot has had one. You can get the shot very easily—they’re free.

According to the administration, the vaccine works perfectly, so vaccinated people are protected from covid. They’re bulletproof. They can’t get sick. That’s why they took the vaccine in the first place. So why is official Washington so angry at the people who won’t get vaccinated? How precisely do they propose a threat? It makes you think that maybe none of this is really about Covid. Maybe it’s about social control. Tony Fauci all but admitted that the other day. Here’s what he said:

Jake Tapper: I know you have been very clear that the government isn't mandating vaccines, but do you think it's generally a good idea for businesses or schools to require vaccinations? Anthony Fauci: Right. I have been of this opinion, and I remain of that opinion, that I do believe, at the local level, Jake, there should be more mandates.

"There should be more mandates." Actually, they didn’t tell us that. Do you remember hearing that when they first rolled out the........
