WaPo promotes censorship push, targets Fox News

In the wake of the Capitol riots, Democrats have continued to push cancel culture to its limits with what seems like a mission to silence opposing voices.

According to Breitbart, that was made clear in a recent op-ed authored by Max Boot, a Washington Post columnist, who called on the telecommunications corporations that control entities like Fox News and Newsmax TV to shut them down, accusing the outlets of inciting domestic terrorism. 

Boot, who’s also a CNN global affairs analyst, wrote with glee and gratitude about decisions made by Facebook, Twitter and other social media companies for censoring President Donald Trump, praising the companies for “their newfound sense of social responsibility.”

The columnist goes on to demand that Fox News take the same measures to stop the spread of false claims and disinformation and then says if they don’t, Fox News and other networks should essentially be taken down by their corporate parents.

“If [they] won’t listen, then large cable companies such as Comcast and Charter Spectrum, which carry Fox News and provide much of its revenue in the form of user fees, need to step in and kick Fox News off,” Boot wrote.

He made the same demands of major cable and television networks to hold emerging outlets like Newsmax TV and One American News to the same standard, including shutting them down for non-compliance.

Boot’s demand to censor major television companies that lean to the right is standard operating procedure from the Washington Post. An earlier Breitbart report covered a recent WaPo report in which they deployed a type of political “litmus test” to see where Republicans stood on the outcome of the 2020 election.

It went on to call for news stations to ask Republicans about the legitimacy of the election at the start of every interview and if they even remotely disagreed, news hosts should have the courage and duty to end the interview before it even begins.

The author of that WaPo essay admitted that the newly proposed approach will be “awkward and unpleasant,” but suggested that it might be the only true method “to safely proceed with live interviews with Republicans who may be carrying a dangerous conspiracy theory that spreads on air.”

obastard is a traitor to America including giving millions to our mus slime enemy and tons of weapons for the bastards to use on our troops-his slutty so called wife wasted millions of gallons of gas on illegal trips on AF One traveling without him on the plane and just 1 step above the clinton broad in dishonesty and disgusting in all respects. Trump at least put money in our pockets and told our enemy to butt out or die.

How can we vote them out when the elections are rigged. The Dems started practicing in 2012 and are getting better each year. People like are AG are not fighting this because I feel the Dems have something on them. I don’t know what the solution is especially when the courts were scared into refusing to here the evidence on the fraudulent election. It was so blatant that I watched it on TV in disbelief.

That election worked for them because of the Mail in ballots. We need to go back to the laws that make people only use absentee ballots when they had to and they had to also prove the need and who they were with ID. Get back to that !

To Stan,
Dishonest voting with Demorats didn’t start in 2012! I Read a book about the division of Cochise County and the election of a new sheriff, the loser challenged the outcome and a audit revealed one precinct had a total of 142 for the declared winner,however there were only 7 registered voters in that precinct! This was in 1840!

Right. Can anybody tell me what happened to the evidence Sidney Powell and Rudy Giuliani have on the election steal? It hasn’t been mentioned in recent days. Does this mean it was all swept under the rug, never to resurface? Will they continue to investigate the Biden/China/Ukraine connection? And what about Hillary’s crimes, and Obama’s administration? And on and on. Or will they get another get out of jail free card? I think I know the answer to these questions.

Just tell them on the 1099 ” We refuse to pay taxes to a Marxist run goverment which is NOT in our Constitution–I know people doing it!! It would take them years with75 million people doing the same thing. Dont baby those worthless EVIL VULGAR brain washed Commie people. My CPA says there is not a thing they can do about it. It would take a long time to catch up. Besides this is not a Costitutional Government and you are not a member of it This is a REPUBLIC–we the people. We need to concentrate on city govenments and state legislatures that only Republicans be in office. We are not a Communist country yet. But its moving fast.
We must all stick together in every city and state. Shove CAlif and New York out the window They arent worth a hill of beans anyway.!!!!

Hey, We had a great President, he did everything that he said he would do. Now we have someone holding that office that has never made a difference in the 48 years he has been in Government. His only experience in running anything is in the running of the Biden crime family! There is recorded proof of what Biden did in the matter of getting that prosecutor fired that was going after Joe’s son, Hunter. For all the illegal deals that they made to get him on boards doing jobs that he had no skills in doing or any type of education to be in those positions! Biden told them that if they didn’t fire the prosecutor he would not give them the $1 billion dollar aid package that the U.S. had agreed to give them. Biden gave them 6 hours to fire the guy or loose the money. That’s the kind of deals Biden makes!

A shame how the liberal left blames everyone but themselves. They have caused more of a division within this country than anyone else.
