Facebook’s chief operating officer Sheryl Sandberg does not seem to care about the impression, shared by a vast cross-section of the country, that Facebook is a left-wing social engineering tool that seeks to crush all intellectual opposition to the corporate progressive totalitarian agenda.

Sandberg gave a $1 million donation to the political wing of Planned Parenthood in response to heartbeat bills that prohibit killing unborn babies with heartbeats. The bills are getting signed by Republicans around the country, including by Georgia’s great governor Brian Kemp.
“I think this is a very urgent moment where the rights and the choices and the basic health of the most vulnerable women — the women who have been marginalized, often women of color — are at stake. And so all of us have to do our part to fight these draconian laws,” Sandberg told the Huffington Post.
The conservative group The Libnorants was recently deleted by Facebook altogether, which is an all-too-common occurrence. Facebook routinely censors anyone on its platform who does not adhere to the progressive agenda, which is simultaneously militant on social issues and also on so-called “conspiracy theories” that the corporate media does not want people to know about.
Some Republicans are not going to be intimidated by Big Tech.
The governor of Georgia kept his promise to sign a pro-life bill into law, signaling significant support for the pro-life community.
Gov. Brian Kemp signed the Living Infants Fairness and Equality (LIFE) Act, passed in both chambers of the Georgia Congress, which “will prohibit abortions in the state after a heartbeat is detected, as early as six weeks into a pregnancy,” according to Fox News.
The law is nicknamed “the heartbeat bill” because it bans abortions after a baby’s heart begins to beat. There are exceptions for cases of rape, incest, and if the mother’s life is in danger.
“Georgia is a state that values life,” Kemp reportedly said just before signing the bill. “We stand up for those who are unable to speak for themselves.”
“Before the signing of the bill, State Rep. Ed Setzler pointed to science, law, and the simple fact that common sense says a beating heart is a sign of life and those children should receive the full protection of the law,” according to the report. “State Sen. Renee Unterman, a former nurse who ushered the bill through the state Senate, said she has waited her entire time as a legislator for this moment, calling it the ‘culmination of my political career.’”
Democrats Introduce Expanded Background Check Legislation
Democrats are going to implement a background check which targets “extremism.”
Connecticut Senator Chris Murphy and California Congressman Mike Thompson brought forward legislation on March 2, 2021 that aims to broaden the federal background check system on firearms sales, according to a report by The Hill.
Under The Background Check Expansion Act, gun sales and purchases between all unlicensed sellers and buyers would be subject to a mandatory background check. The background checks would not be applicable for law enforcement officers, lending out firearms for the purpose of hunting, temporary transfers for self-defense, or family members gifting a firearm.
Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer and 43 Senate Democrats have co-sponsored this bill. Thompson, who is the chair of the House Gun Violence Prevention Task Force, reintroduced this legislation in the U.S. House
“For years, the bipartisan House-passed background checks bill languished in the Senate under Republican Leader Mitch McConnell. Now, with Senate Democrats in the Majority, we have the opportunity to act on this overwhelmingly popular, lifesaving legislation to protect American communities,” Schumer declared in a press release.
According to a CBS News report, President Joe Biden has repeatedly called on Congress to pass stiffer gun control laws. This gun control bill will not pass so easily given how it will need 10 Republican senators to vote in favor of it.
Against the backdrop of the January 6 storming of the Capitol, such a background check will likely feature provisions that target so-called “extremists.” The ruling class has routinely lumped average gun owners with domestic extremists and will most certainly use recent events to justify encroachments on people’s right to bear arms.
Biden is a veteran of the gun control movement, as evidenced by his sponsorship of the Gun-Free School Zones Act of 1990 and the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban. With Democrats in control of all branches of the federal government, they will certainly move to pass gun control. However, their success is not guaranteed due to moderate Democrats like Arizona Senator Kyrsten Sinema and West Virginia Joe Manchin not being completely receptive to radical gun control that could alienate them from their more right-wing constituents.
Nevertheless, the Left has shown that it’s willing to act regardless of the political context. Keeping this in mind, gun owners must be ready to beat back any kind of gun control coming from D.C. Such fights will allow the Right to rebuild its forces and make a splash in the 2022 midterms and the 2024 presidential race.
