Media Matters’ ‘Control Alt-Right Delete’ Campaign Seeks to Shut Down Conservative Speech

Published

on

George Soros-funded Media Matters for America is launching a new campaign to pressure social media platforms into shutting down right wing speech.

“The social media networks Americans use every day, they’ve been weaponized against us,”  Melissa Ryan, editor and Control Alt-Right Delete visiting fellow at Media Matters said in a Now This video. “So who’s doing this?”

“It isn’t one group, but a coalition with a lot of overlap including right wing media, far right online communities, home grown hate groups, and hostile foreign actors, most notably Russian trolls.” she continued.

It is obvious that Ryan considers everyone right of Bernie Sanders to be “alt right.” When she references “right wing media,” a picture of  Fox anchor Tucker Carlson flashes across the screen. In the same breath, she mentions hate groups, and shows a photo of bona fide Nazi Richard Spencer, who has been consistently denounced by the political right.

Ryan provides no evidence for any of the nonsense she is spewing. She does not explain how this so-called “coalition” began. She shows no examples of “Russian trolls” sowing discord online. She simply states her conclusions as facts.

Ryan goes on to blame President Donald J. Trump for fueling divisive rhetoric, using the same old tired leftist talking points. On the “leftist talking points” subject, she also claims without evidence that “women and people of color are disproportionately the target of [internet] weaponization campaigns.”

She discusses “tactics” for these “weaponization campaigns” including spreading fake news, amplification, online harassment, and “fanning the flames,” which she defines as internet trolling.

The whole segment is an idiotic exercise in which Ryan claims that the political right is the only group using the aforementioned tactics, ignoring online death threats to the President from the likes of Kathy Griffin, and a bevy of examples of leftist hate online that would turn this article into a thesis if fleshed out completely.

So what is Ryan’s solution to the problem? Easy. Censor all conservative speech online.

“The best way to fight back against weaponization is to pressure the tech platforms,” she says. “I believe that social media can be a force for good again. But we can’t get there until [the tech companies] take responsibility for what’s gone wrong.”

The message from this ridiculous display is that “what’s gone wrong” is conservatives having a platform online. Media Matters and their ilk will stop at nothing to silence dissenting views.

Democrats’ Expert on Misinformation is CNN Hack Soledad O’Brien Who Has Pushed Fake News Incessantly for Years

The Democrats are shamelessly Orwellian.

CNN propagandist Soledad O’Brien appeared before Congress on Wednesday as the Democrats’ expert on combating “misinformation.”

During the hearing, she called for her competitors to be censored and for alternative perspectives from the globalist-mandated consensus to be crushed.

“When news organizations make decisions based on ratings rather than responsible reporting, disinformation flourishes in dangerous ways,” O’Brien said while appearing before Congress.

“Cover the fact that lies and propaganda are being disseminated, but do not book people to lie on your show, because it elevates them and presents a lie as another side. Stop posing every story as having two sides, some stories, in fact, have many many sides, and are more complicated. And also, lies don’t have a side,’ she added, describing her vision for how news should be covered.

However, if O’Brien’s advice were taken by newsrooms, she would never be allowed on anymore due to her record of spreading reckless conspiracy theories about Trump being a Russian asset and other nonsense.

News aggregator @amuse posted some of O’Brien’s greatest hits on the fake news leader over the past few years:

Big League Politics has reported on other times in which O’Brien humiliated herself by posting falsehoods:

As usual, members of our esteemed media were caught lying on Wednesday, this time about the motivations for President Donald J. Trump’s visit to Iraq to visit troops.

Much ado was made when Trump did not visit Iraq on Christmas Day. NBC said that he was the first president not to visit the troops as Christmastime, only to correct themselves after Trump left for Iraq late Tuesday night. This led leftists conclude that the media had “shamed” Trump into visiting our fine soldiers.

“Shaming him seems to work,” CNN’s Soledad O’Brien said in reply to a Tweet by Brit Hume.

Hume had noted that by the time left-wing actress had blasted Trump for not visiting the troops, he had already visited them. Hume blasted O’Brien for her apparent lack of understanding of the concept of time.

“Yes Ma’am,” he said. “Trump read this Tweet when it was posted and time-traveled himself back to yesterday and flew to Iraq. Genius take.”

… What was wrong was the assumption that Trump had to be “shamed” to visiting the war zone. Embarrassingly, these leftists were proved wrong by leftist POLITICO.

“According to a White House official, the Trump administration had been planning the trip for more than six weeks,” said a Wednesday POLITICO piece.

Of course, the piece chided Trump for not being able to keep his trip a secret, citing two of Trump’s remarks about a potential trip to a war zone. 

The Democrats are shameless in pushing their Orwellian agenda. They are at war with objective reality and will stoop to unfathomable depths to achieve absolute power.
