(RepublicanWire.org) – Our country’s ruling class doubled down in its efforts to silence anyone who dares dissent from their approved narrative. 

On March 9, 2022, Democrat Tulsi Gabbard offered the following comments to Fox News concerning our government’s handling of the Russian-Ukrainian war.

“Nothing that the Biden administration has done has helped make this situation better nor has it helped deescalate the situation. When I look at these issues, I think about what is in the best interests of the American people [and] the continued escalation of this conflict and this war is not in the best interest of Americans or the world. … People like Hillary Clinton and Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, all use this flowery language about how you know we’ve got to take a stand and pay the price … for freedom. The question that we should all be asking them is OK, tell us how Russia somehow has the power to take away … the rights that are enshrined in our Bill of Rights. The answer is, they don’t; they don’t have that power. So, the lines that we’re being sold are just crap. … It’s crap.”

Ms. Gabbard then summarized: “The ‘Power Elite’ in Washington” is doing all this simply to further their goals; “their warmongering” and their “military-industrial complex.”

And for all the above, Ms. Gabbard was then declared verboten by Google and YouTube, and her comments were flagged this week by “fact-checkers” as “inappropriate and offensive to some audiences.” 

So, there you have it. Ms. Gabbard just said something that, for all intents and purposes, is indistinguishable from what the leaders of her own party have said a thousand times over when they criticized former Presidents George Bush, Ronald Reagan or for that matter Lyndon B. Johnson, and she was canceled for doing so. 

This kind of censorship should bother you. Or as Tucker Carlson recently said, “When every orifice of the national media, fully aligns [with the political establishment] to push a single message, this ought to make you nervous.”
