The instant the pandemic struck, the government and health officials tried to clamp down on “misinformation.” They didn’t want the American public to be led astray during a difficult time.
That was their goal, but this also led to questionable silencing of potentially viable sources. And many worried that eventually, the government would start going after individual citizens.
Now it sounds like they’re doing exactly that.
We’ve seen widespread vaccination campaigns: states giving all sorts of incentives to entice people to get vaccinated, commercials telling everyone it’s the right thing to do, etc.
However, some concerned citizens believe this campaign has taken on a somewhat sinister tone.
Now, it feels as if the government is just a step away from mandating the vaccine, as they might mandate face masks and more lockdowns in the future, depending on how the variants play out.
And a recent report suggest that in fact, federal authorities might indeed be coming into your personal life.
Again, it’s under the banner of “dispelling misinformation,” but it still has that sinister undertone. BlazeTV host Dave Rubin talked about it in Wednesday’s episode of “The Rubin Report”:
According to a Politico report, ‘The White House has decided to hit back harder on misinformation and scare tactics after Republican lawmakers and conservative activists pledged to fight the administration’s stated plans to go ‘door-to-door’ to increase vaccination rates.
The pushback will include directly calling out social media platforms and conservative news shows that promote such tactics.
We’ve heard of this possibility before. They’ve been calling out conservative news outlets since the start of the pandemic.
But it gets highly questionable from there:
The article added that “Biden allied groups, including the Democratic National Committee,” plan to “work with SMS carriers to dispel information about vaccines that is sent over social media and text messages.”
Rubin called it an “extraordinary” bit of news.
He elaborated by saying that if you send a personal text message to a friend or family member, it could land you in hot water.
If the person you’re sending it to deems it “misinformation,” the government might get involved. And additionally, this somehow involves the Democrat Party.
All of this sounds suspiciously like a leftist-fueled push to give Big Brother even more power. And to many, it’s actually not surprising, as it seems they’ve been headed in this direction all along.
However, if this report is accurate, we can expect serious push-back from annoyed citizens.
At the very least, to many, this is going to feel like a giant invasion of privacy — it will also feel like a complete violation of our rights as supposedly free individuals.
