Obama: We Have to Kill Independent Media before 2024

Former US President Barack Obama has called for independent media to be totally abolished before the 2024 presidential election.

Speaking at the Copenhagen Democracy Summit last week, Obama called for a total worldwide ban on content he deems to be “disinformation,” “hate,” or a “conspiracy theory.” In other words, everything not approved by the corporate mainstream media.

Before Obama took the stage, 2022 Obama Foundation Leader Sarah-Josephine Hjorth hinted at what was to come by railing against “fake news and misinformation.”

“While the increase in use of smartphones and social media first came with the whisper of renewed democratic participation, fake news and misinformation dominate the digital landscape and result in an erosion of the fabric of truth and polarization,” Hjorth said.

Shortly after taking the stage, Obama continued this theme by invoking the January 6 Capitol riot and tying it to “misinformation and conspiracy theories.”

“In my own country, the forces that unleashed mob violence on our Capitol are still churning out misinformation and conspiracy theories,” Obama said.

Towards the end of his speech, Obama made a more direct call for censorship of content that’s branded as a conspiracy theory, disinformation, or hate.

“We have to take steps to detoxify our discourse,” the former President said. “Particularly the scourge of disinformation and conspiracy theories and hate online that has polluted our political discourse.”

Obama continued by demanding that technology companies “accept a certain degree of democratic oversight and accountability” and noting that he spoke at length about these issues during his April 21 speech at Stanford University.

In his Stanford speech, Obama called for “solving the disinformation problem,” welcomed social media censorship of “hate speech,” and said that content moderation “doesn’t go far enough.”

After finishing his speech, Obama invited three 2022 Obama Foundation leaders, Tudor Iulian Bradatan, Selvije Mustafi, and Federica Vinci, to the stage. He then complained about the increased amount of misinformation since he left office and the difficulty of “sorting between what’s true and what’s false, what’s journalism and what’s fabrication.”

Obama continued by claiming that the politicization of COVID issues, such as getting vaccinated or wearing masks, was “driven just by misinformation that was out there.”

“I’m wondering how…it’s [misinformation] affected you and whether you’ve seen some solutions to…help young people distinguish between what’s true and false in making decisions about how to participate and what to support?” Obama asked.

Mustafi, a national grassroots organizer at the biggest Roma movement in North Macedonia, said “there are big concerns also in our movement about how…false information and misinformation is spreading on the internet to influence decisions by some political actors or political sides.”

She added that the challenge of this kind of fake news and misinformation is that it makes people have a “different kind of opinion which is not necessarily relevant or truthful.”

Vinci, the Deputy Mayor of Isernia, Italy, described the spread of “false news” and “false noise” as “scary.”

Obama’s Copenhagen Democracy Summit and Stanford University speeches are some of the many pushes he’s made for rules that would chill online speech.

Earlier this year, the former President proposed “modifications” to online anonymity when people are “rude, obnoxious, cruel, or lie” and suggested that social media algorithms should be audited by federal inspectors to deal with misinformation.

And in previous years, Obama has called for social media regulations that curb “crazy lies and conspiracy theories” and pushed internet platforms to reduce the influence of hate groups.

What is it about these ex-politicians whose time in the sun has well and truly gone? Lefties, (Clark and Key) should just fuck off and keep their opinions to themselves. No one with an active brain wants to hear or see them ever again.

    Conservative Lawyers File Major Lawsuit Against Facebook, Twitter, Zuckerberg, and Dorsey
    By Enrico Trigoso
    June 9, 2022 Updated: June 9, 2022
    Attorneys John Pierce and former U.S. Rep. Bob Barr (R-Ga.) filed in May a federal civil RICO (racketeer influenced and corrupt organizations act) lawsuit seeking over $10 billion in damages against Facebook, Twitter, Mark Zuckerberg, and Jack Dorsey on behalf of Laura Loomer, a Republican who is running for Florida’s 11th congressional district.

    Loomer is a Jewish conservative journalist who has been banned from Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Uber, Uber Eats Lyft, Clubhouse, and Chase online banking, among other companies.

    The lead counsel, Bob Barr, founder of the non-profit Liberty Guard, told The Epoch Times that this case is different from other cases filed against big tech/social media companies in recent years, which have generally focused on some form of defamation.

    “What we have constructed in our complaint … is far different—it’s broader, more complex, and more substantive,” Barr said.

    “The idea that [Laura Loomer] can be silenced by Big Tech with the push of a button because she is conservative is absurd, dangerous, and un-American. In this legal action, we will fight to ensure that Ms. Loomer’s voice is not silenced, and that vital constitutionally guaranteed rights are protected in the digital age.”

    Loomer said she looks forward to “taking on Facebook, Twitter, Mark Zuckerberg, and Jack Dorsey in the courtroom.”

    “I’m proud to have filed the first-ever RICO case against the big tech mafia, the big tech social media tyrants, for their criminal activity and active conspiracy in an effort to silence Americans and basically control the flow of information around the world,” Loomer told The Epoch Times.

    “Ultimately I think that they need to be held accountable … and just like I’m going to be holding them accountable in the courtroom with my RICO case, I also look forward to holding Big Tech accountable once I win my congressional race,” Loomer continued.

    “I think it’s important for people to remember that I am the first and the only de-platformed candidate in United States history. So my campaign is the only campaign that has ever been denied access to social media and this is election interference.”

    A Florida law that would fine social media companies for deplatforming political candidates was challenged in court in May.

  2. I guess it’s already been reported here but I was talking to a guy yesterday that works for a dominant NZ power company and he assured me that the small 1/2 hour modification that consumers are being advised of on their Smart electricity meters is all about the ability to control your availability of electricity, what could possibly go wrong?? and apparently you can refuse it but of course people were told initially by the CNUT Ardern that vaccines would never be mandated.
