This open thread is meant for commenters to post on items which they believe need to be known. Rules are here.



  1. The ways in which the liberal elites are trying to silence the opposition:

    Web of Distrust

    Note that on my broser window, bizzyblog gets a “not secure” entry at the top left next to your web address. This is nothing more than a blatant attempt to scare off traffic from your site. I’m using a Chrome book and google is telling me you’re not safe to use. Maybe you and other web site operators should do a class action law suit against google for engaging in censorship.

  2. Has Newsbusters learned a lesson?

    Tucker Carlson and the Apology Factory

    …Today, manufactured apologies like the one George coerced out of Jason, are a dime a dozen. For the most part, people who are coerced into making a public apology are conservatives, although that’s not always the case. They are “caught” by the “P.C. Woke Squad” for saying something supposedly offensive and hurtful…

    …Others are quite malignant, like the recent attack by Media Matters on Tucker Carlson. The intent of course, not only was to force Carlson to apologize for the comments he made on a radio show years ago, but more importantly, to start the process of silencing his voice…

    …They are not interested in forming the character of the apologizer, they are interested in extracting validation of their opinions and extracting vengeance from those who dare to question their authority. They are merely trying to weaken the person considered to be an ideological opponent. This is why forced public apologies are meaningless.

    They don’t solve any real issues between us or present us with any resolutions because they are not meant to be used toward that end. The intent is to humiliate and swiftly remove the power from the person who is being attacked. They are simply power struggles. Today’s compulsory contrition is just a pose and enforcing it is no more than a tactical maneuver by the Left in order to push the ideology of leftism into the public square. Public shaming and compulsory contrition are Alinsky style tactics…

    …The real action and intent is to remove Carlson from the public square. This orchestrated and tactical hit on Carlson was really an attack on a much larger idea, namely the idea of America. The intention and directive is simple: annihilate the voices of dissent who speak the truth and who are effective in getting that message out against the fake news media, which is the true enemy of the people…

    …Does Carlson’s refusal to apologize represent a turning point in the war against the fake news and P.C. police? Has the American public had enough of this faux indignation?…

  3. The “not secure” may relate to the site not being https, a form of “security” that has become a financial windfall for otherwise floundering domain name registrars.
