The First Amendment is on life support, I cautioned folks during the Ferguson Uprising that this day was coming, memba when I put out the call to create our own? Our own unapologetic black media? Our own movement media? Our own tech and social media platforms…. memba that? Only to have it all fall on deaf ears… all because mofos wanted to be seen, they wanted to be brands, twitterlebrities and build huge social media followings… memba me cautioning about building on platforms we don’t own or control? About the sabotage, amplication of certain voices, diminishing of others… about the danger of applauding the deplatforming of Alex Jones… Memba the talk about the spread of false narratives in the media and the collusion of the left?
The attack on the First Amendment isn’t new, it didn’t just start as a result of the storming of the Capitol, although its being used as pretext for whatever is yet to come. The attack on the First Amendment and collusion of the Dem Party and big tech began during Ferguson with the spread of 3 false narratives, 1. that Mike Brown committed strong arm robbery 2. that he didn’t have his hands up and 3. that Black Lives Matter started or led the Ferguson uprising… the Mike Brown narratives started by Ferguson and it’s police department, the BLM narratives started by the Dem Party NPIC and out of town nonprofits in collusion with black leaders, clergy and prominent protesters/activists who sold out in exchange for access, fame and being ‘the face’. Any pushback against any of these false narratives was met with swift resistance… Darren Seals was murdered while working to expose it all.
Fast forward to today… the same forces are at play. It was Dems, Michelle Obama who called for the deplatforming of the President of the United States… and y’all cheered. It was AOC who called for the deplatforming of Parler, and y’all cheered. Now the same forces are going after any and all dissenting voices calling them out on their fuckery…. not just conservatives or Trumpers, but progressives and the voices of new black media.
And lookie who’s leading the charge…
