We have gone from protests, to riots, to an attack, to an insurrection.
The shifting terms that the Left uses to define what happened at the U.S. Capitol and in the streets across this country is telling.
The more severe the words, the more severe their response can be. And that’s the end game.
There are so many stories, but let's look at Mike Lindell. He’s gone from late night pillow pitchman to a threat to ‘civic integrity.’
From The DailyWire:
MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell became the latest to lose his Twitter account when he was banned Monday night for allegedly violating the company’s new “civic integrity policy.”
“The account you referenced has been permanently suspended due to repeated violations of our Civic Integrity Policy,” a Twitter spokesperson told CNN, referencing the rule instituted after the Capitol riot by which the social media giant can ban accounts that claim the 2020 election was stolen.
“You may not use Twitter’s services for the purpose of manipulating or interfering in elections or other civic processes,” the company admonishes users on its website. “This includes posting or sharing content that may suppress participation or mislead people about when, where, or how to participate in a civic process. In addition, we may label and reduce the visibility of Tweets containing false or misleading information about civic processes in order to provide additional context.”
So, what did Lindell say? That the Capitol protests were ‘mostly peaceful.’
For that, and his general support of President Trump, the Left is trying to silence Lindell and erase him from the public sphere.
Words have meaning. And the words that Left and the new media censors are using are being used for a reason.
