Obama Endorses Censorship Of People

(PresidentialInsider.com)- Last Thursday, the 2013 winner of PolitiFact’s “Lie of the Year” turned up at Stanford University to call on Big Tech to “redesign” itself to better combat the “dangers” of disinformation.

Yup. Former President Barack Obama, who played a starring role in the spread of the phony Russian collusion hoax, warned that we have become susceptible to “lies and conspiracy theories.”

Having Barack Obama take on the role of “Disinformation Fighter” is about as absurd as having Ghislaine Maxwell head up an effort to stop the spread of underage sex trafficking.

But for Barack Obama, “combatting disinformation” means demanding Big Tech double down on platform censorship. And like every Barack Obama speech, this one was filled with false claims, histrionics, and over-the-top hyperbole.

Obama claimed that “people are dying because of misinformation” about the COVID vaccines:

He lumped podcaster Steve Bannon together with Vladimir Putin, claiming both know that it isn’t necessary to get people to believe their disinformation, “you just have to flood a country’s public square with enough raw sewage.”

You know, “raw sewage” like “If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor” or “Trump colluded with Russia to steal the election from Hillary Clinton.”

This guy is a piece of work.

When it comes to overdramatic hyperbole, you can always count on Barack Obama to lay it on thick.

Unbelievably, in his speech warning of dangerous disinformation, Obama continued to peddle the lie that Russia interfered with the results of the 2016 election:

“Shameless” doesn’t begin to describe this man.

But Obama’s hope of forcing Big Tech to further censor everyone who runs against the approved Leftist Narrative ran into a brick wall on Monday when Twitter’s board of directors announced it had accepted Elon Musk’s offer to buy the company.

While Twitter isn’t the largest Big Tech company, it is one of the most influential when it comes to news and information. With Musk’s takeover, any hope of Twitter signing on to Barack Obama’s vision of censorship is dead on arrival.

But don’t worry Barack. If you like your censorship, you can keep your censorship.
