Cumulus Media, the talk radio conglomerate that hosts many conservative shows, says that their clientele will be fired unless they obey new politically correct edicts regarding their programming.
Specifically, hosts Mark Levin, Dan Bongino and Ben Shapiro will likely be fired if they suggest that the vote was stolen from President Donald Trump, despite the mountains of evidence indicating that this in fact was the case.
Mark Levin, Ben Shapiro and Dan Bongino’s employer, Cumulus Media, has told its on-air personalities to stop suggesting that the election was stolen from President Trump — or face termination “immediately”https://t.co/aMzP3nO7PV

“We need to help induce national calm NOW,” a Cumulus Media executive wrote last week following the Capitol rally.
Brian Philips, executive vice president for Cumulus, made the official announcement that Draconian censorship would be instituted in the response to the display.
He issued an edict saying that Cumulus and Westwood One “will not tolerate any suggestion that the election has not ended. The election has been resolved and there are no alternate acceptable ‘paths’.”
“If you transgress this policy, you can expect to separate from the company immediately,” he added.
Big League Politics has reported about the Biblical crackdown on freedom of expression occurring in the wake of the rally:
President Donald Trump has been suspended permanently from Twitter after a mostly peaceful protest took place in the Capitol earlier this week…
Twitter made it official in an announcement that Trump is off of the platform for good.
“After close review of recent Tweets from the @realDonaldTrump account and the context around them we have permanently suspended the account due to the risk of further incitement of violence,” they wrote from their Twitter Safety account on the platform…
This may have been done at the behest of former first lady Michelle Obama, who called for the tech giants to make unprecedented moves to censor President Trump earlier in the week.
“Like all of you, I watched as a gang-organized, violent, and mad they’d lost an election-laid siege to the United States Capitol,” Obama said. “They set up gallows. They proudly waved the traitorous flag of the Confederacy through the halls. They desecrated the center of American government.”
She whined that “once authorities finally gained control of the situation, these rioters and gang members were led out of the building not in handcuffs, but free to carry on with their days.”
Obama urged “Silicon Valley companies to stop enabling this monstrous behavior-and go even further than they have already by permanently banning this man from their platforms and putting in place policies to prevent their technology from being used by the nation’s leaders to fuel insurrection.”
Twitter received the order and now President Trump has been removed from the platform. They ban Trump while allowing pedophiles to discuss raping children on their platform, as Big League Politics has reported.
Nothing will ever return to how it was before Jan. 6. Big Brother is taking shape, and all conservatives will be targeted by its overreach.
Washington Post Op-Ed Writer Asks Why It’s Difficult to “Deprogram Trumpian Conspiracy Theorists”
This “deprogramming” talk is dangerous and it needs to stop.
Professor and Washington Post contributor Brian Klaas recently wrote an op-ed for the paper titled “Why is it so hard to deprogram Trumpist conspriacy theorists?”, speculating that Trump’s base is teeming with “deluded people” who are so out of touch with reality that “reprogramming” them may prove impossible.
The Post published the op-ed Monday. Klaas’ opening paragraph says in part that “for the past four years, the United States was governed by a conspiracy theorist in chief. Whether by retweeting QAnon accounts from the Oval Office or painting himself as the victim of shadowy ‘deep state’ plots at rallies, President Donald Trump injected the toxin of baseless conspiratorial thinking straight into America’s political bloodstream.”
He asserts that the participants of the Capitol storming on January 6 were “insurrectionists” and “conspiracy theorists” and then asks if “we have any hope of deprogramming the millions of Americans who are devoted to dangerous lunacy.”
“Don’t hold your breath,” quipped Klaas, who proceeds to jump into a psychological explanation for why conspiracy theorists believe the things they believe. Part of what makes them so hard to “deprogram,” he says, is an inability for their claims to be falsified, their ever-shifting explanations for why predicted events don’t come to pass, and the social atmosphere of online communities.
Klaas concludes his op-ed as follows: “We can no longer pretend that conspiracy theorists are beneath our attention. They’ve shown they have tremendous capacity to inflict damage on society. Bringing the deluded people who populate Trump’s political base back to reality will be difficult. But to find the right antidote, we need to at least accurately diagnose who has taken the poison. And that means acknowledging that those who sympathize with the Capitol insurrectionists are not far-off lunatics. Some, most likely, are your neighbors.
“And, given the staying power of conspiratorial thinking, they aren’t likely to change their minds anytime soon.”
This is hardly the first time commentators and writers have used “deprogramming” language in recent days. And it reveals a lot about the contempt with which they view Trump supporters. It doesn’t get any more clear that they wish millions of people had their worldviews thoroughly reexamined and minds reprogrammed before they can be considered part of polite society again. That’s extraordinarily dangerous, divisive rhetoric. And it needs to stop.
Did the people who stormed the Capitol do something wrong and did some of them believe in QAnon-type conspiracy theories? Yes and yes. But the left for years has smeared Trump as a dictator and his fervent supporters as fascists; hence they have no moral qualms about lumping together both the Capitol rioters and run-of-the-mill Trump supporters. They essentially think January 2021 is May 1945 and that we all need to be denazified. It’s disturbing and concerning, especially since they’re the ones with all the institutional power.
We’re going to be in for a rough four years, guys.
