A county in Wisconsin has started a web portal that encourages people to snitch on other individuals who do not follow coronavirus edicts issued by the state.
Dane County, Wisc. wants residents to inform on anyone who has more than 10 people gathering at a time, as the Democrat-led state continues to use the Chinese COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic to shut down civil society.
Democrat Gov. Tony Evers ordered every bar, restaurant, and mall to close last week, and banned any theater, church, gym, party, arena from having a gathering with more than 10 people. They hope that the citizenry will help enforce these unprecedented authoritarian edicts.
If Public Health Madison and Dane County find that individuals have violated the mandate, they could receive up to 30 days in jail and a $500 fine. Critics see this as an egregious violation of civil liberties.
“The balance between protecting physical security and the security of fundamental individual rights to freely worship, maintain and operate private businesses, and associate on private property is a delicate one,” wrote WISN radio host Dan O’Donnell.
“And as compelling as the need to protect Wisconsin’s citizenry against coronavirus may be, the need to protect the citizenry’s freedom will always take precedence,” he added.
O’Donnell contends that the “right of the collective to security can only infringe on the individual’s right to liberty when that infringement isn’t more restrictive than it needs to be,” but Evers instead decided to “take a sledgehammer to coronavirus instead of using a scalpel.”
Empower Wisconsin Foundation president Eric O’Keefe said: “The dictates of Gov. Evers do nothing to add to our protection. Instead they have seized from all of us our authority to conduct our lives.”
“This is happening in ways invisible to him, as his approach prevents people from making their own decisions about how to survive the loss of their businesses, their jobs, or beloved relatives,” O’Keefe added. “We are social beings. We need others to survive, and we need the freedom to associate with others in order to be fully alive.”
Gov. Evers announced his “Safer at Home” project in a Twitter post on Monday, which completely shutters all so-called non-essential businesses by government force.
“I know this has been difficult and has disrupted the lives of people across our state. That’s why issuing a #SaferAtHome order isn’t something I thought we’d have to do, and it’s not something I take lightly,” Evers wrote in a tweet. “But here’s the bottom line: folks need to start taking this seriously.”
The response to coronavirus may turn out to be far worse for the public health than the pandemic itself.
Spotify Snowflakes Threaten to Strike If ‘Joe Rogan Experience’ is Not Censored on Platform
Leftists hate free speech.
A contingent of leftist snowflakes working at Spotify are demanding that certain podcast episodes of the Joe Rogan Experience be censored to their ideological demands, or they will strike.
Last week, it was reported that Spotify was undergoing a revolt of sorts because several controversial episodes of the podcast were being published on the platform. An episode featuring Abigail Shrier, author of Irreversible Damage: The Transgender Craze Seducing Our Daughters, is particularly offensive to the left-wing snowflakes who hate freedom of speech and love mentally-ill individuals getting their genitals mutilated.
Rogan is already being forced to grovel for making accurate statements on his podcast, such as when he correctly claimed that left-wing terrorists are starting wildfires in places like Portland.
“I said something on the podcast with Douglas Murray about people getting arrested for lighting fires, and I got duped. It’s wrong,” Rogan said in an Instagram post.
Smelling blood in the water, the Spotify leftists are going for the jugular. They are threatening to strike if they cannot exert further ideological control over Rogan’s podcast. According to Digital Music News, New York-based Spotify employees are intending to strike with accompanying pro-censorship protests outside of Spotify’s Manhattan headquarters.
However, they report that Spotify brass is likely willing to stare down these entitled employees, considering the $100 million investment they put into Rogan’s podcast.
“It also appears that Spotify management — including CEO Daniel Ek — has a limited tolerance for the mutiny on deck… The reason for Ek’s pushback is somewhat obvious. Joe Rogan’s entire identity revolves around unfiltered discussion and opinion, and audiences could abandon the podcast if it becomes censored or controlled,” Digital Music News reported.
Big League Politics has reported on the controversial episodes of Rogan’s podcast that have already been censored by Spotify:
Fans of the Joe Rogan Experience podcast were mostly thrilled when the stand-up comedian and UFC announcer announced his move to Spotify, believing that this change would allow Rogan to have more creative freedom than he did previously.
However, this does not appear to be the case as Spotify has banned controversial and popular episodes now that the platform controls the podcast.
The Spotify channel for the Joe Rogan Experience does not host episodes featuring conspiracy icon Alex Jones and Bitcoin enthusiast David Seaman. Other right-wing figures interviewed by Rogan over the years – including Gavin McInnes, Stefan Molyneux, Milo Yiannopoulos, Charles C. Johnson, Owen Benjamin and Sargon of Akkad – have been scrubbed by Spotify as well.
Rogan fans are not happy at this early indicator that Spotify will likely be exerting massive control over the show’s content.
“This goes against his “we need to talk to everybody” shtick. Im not interested in listening to curated podcasts by his employer,” wrote Reddit user “Pluum” in disgust of the news.
“So disappointed, Alex did not even say anything too crazy on those episodes. I had Spotify premium prior to Rogan but I will probably quit my subscription just out of spite now, that will show them!” wrote user @Excavatetheinfo in another Reddit post.
“Not sure what your question is exactly but “He sold out” is kind of a general explanation of what’s going on,” user @Elgallo619 wrote in a comment.
“Spotify is partnered with Tencent Holdings, a Chinese company whose CEO is an active member of the Chinese Communist Party. Anything remotely anti-CCP is getting 86’d,” wrote user @dictatorphil about Spotify’s Chinese connections.
Spotify would be wise to not let these leftist staffers hold the company hostage due to their opposition of free of expression. If they capitulate, the Rogan podcast could be the next victim of the “go woke, go broke” phenomenon.
