A virulent if familiar censorship is about to descend on the US election campaign. As the cartoon brute, Donald Trump, seems almost certain to win the Republican Party’s nomination, Hillary Clinton is being ordained both as the “women’s candidate” and the champion of American liberalism in its heroic struggle with the Evil One.Yes, it should have, but the naive American public always falls for these lies every presidential election, and that is why our masters keep using the same deceptions--it works every time.
This is drivel, of course; Hillary Clinton leaves a trail of blood and suffering around the world and a clear record of exploitation and greed in her own country. To say so, however, is becoming intolerable in the land of free speech.
The 2008 presidential campaign of Barack Obama should have alerted even the most dewy-eyed.
He then goes on to disclose his censorship experience with the liberal TruthOut's website. Following Cartalucci's advice, I took about 30 minutes this morning to ascertain the funding of TruthOut, and I found that their top contributors have donated substantial amounts to Democratic Party candidates. (See this on page 28 [corrected on 3/30/2016], this, and this.)
The “editorial committee” clearly wanted me to water down my argument that Clinton represented a proven extreme danger to the world. Like all censorship, this was unacceptable. Maya Schenwar, who runs Truthout, wrote to me that my unwillingness to submit my work to a “process of revision” meant she had to take it off her “publication docket”. Such is the gatekeeper’s way with words.
