It has begun. The next step is to round up the “terrorists,” and we know what the state does to them.
Next, they'll start rounding up people. This the predictable path of authoritarians. https://t.co/TPXYEUGr7D— Another Day in the Empire (@day_empire) September 27, 2022
New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern, for some reason deemed a “liberal,” has called for a global system of repression against speech she does not agree with, namely questioning climate change.
I am referring to the classic definition of liberalism, a political ideology based upon the protection of individual liberty, including and most importantly free speech.
Jacinda Ardern is not a liberal. She is a fascist.
Merriam-Webster defines fascism as a tendency toward or actual exercise of strong autocratic or dictatorial control, including the sort of “solution” proposed by Ardern to demonize and criminalize those who disagree with her, but also Hillary Clinton and other modern autocratic “liberals” masquerading as saviors of the people (so long as they agree and vote for them).
“New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern is the latest liberal leader to call for an international alliance to censor speech,” writes Jonathan Turley, a legal scholar holding the Shapiro Chair for Public Interest Law at The George Washington University Law School, where he teaches constitutional law.
Unsatisfied with the unprecedented corporate censorship of social media companies, leaders like Hillary Clinton have turned from private censorship to good old-fashioned state censorship. Speech regulation has become an article of faith on the left. Ardern used her speech this week to the United Nations General Assembly to call for censorship on a global scale.
Ardern noted how extremists use speech to spread lies without noting that non-extremists use the same free speech to counter such views. To answer her question on “how do you tackle climate change if people do not believe it exists” is that you convince people using the same free speech. Instead, Ardern appears to want to silence those who have doubts.
In addition to silencing and eventually criminalizing those who have legitimate arguments countering the theory of manmade climate change, Ardern “defended the need for such global censorship on having to combat those who question climate change and the need to stop ‘hateful and dangerous rhetoric and ideology,” in other words, those who oppose the non-classic “liberal” ideology.
Ardern’s proposal “is the same rationale used by authoritarian countries like China, Iran, and Russia to censor dissidents, minority groups, and political rivals. What is ‘hateful’ and ‘dangerous’ is a fluid concept that government have historically used to silence critics or dissenters,” Truly continues.
For Ardern and the ruling financial elite she serves, speech is a “weapon of war,” not “hypothetical” but as real and dangerous as physical weapons. “ The weapons of war have changed, they are upon us and require the same level of action and activity that we put into the weapons of old,” she insists.
For those of us who have lived through twenty long years of the so-called “war on terror,” some understand how these globalist fascists deal with “terrorists”—outright murder without trial, abduction, torture (in CIA dungeons), and indefinite confinement without trial. Are these the tactics were can expect from fascist leaders of Ardern’s ilk in response to those who disagree with the globalist agenda.?
Age and gender are meaningless for these psychopathic killers. Consider the case of sixteen-year-old Abdulrahman al-Awlaki, a U.S. citizen born in Denver in 1995, and his Yemeni cousin, both killed by the US military in Yemen. Abdulrahman was the son of Anwar al-Awlaki, a supposed al-Qaeda figure and cleric who in the past worked with the CIA. He was also assassinated by the CIA.
“The Obama administration’s top Pentagon lawyer [in January 2012] said that American citizens who join Al Qaeda can be targeted for killing and that courts should have no role in reviewing executive branch decisions about whether someone has met such criteria,” The New York Times reported (emphasis added).
“The rise in domestic terrorism — as profiled in a captivating New York Times Magazine report from 2018 — is largely driven by an uptick in far-right extremism. Of the 263 acts of domestic terrorism that occurred between 2010 and the end of 2017, 92, around a third, were committed by Americans on the far right,” according to New York Mag’s Intelligencer.
The precise boundaries of “far-right extremism” are rarely if ever defined or clarified—and this is not a mistake. The ambiguity allows the state to declare any non-‘liberal” individual or group as “far-right” extremist.
In addition, the FBI has long honed the art of setting up and framing people as terrorists, from COINTELPRO in the 1960s until today. Revelations of FBI involvement in the capitol “insurrection” should be instructive.
Ardern and the “liberal” fascists will not rest until conservatives, civil libertarians, and others in opposition to their agenda are either imprisoned or eliminated.
Supposed climate change is simply the beginning. Ardern and her disciples, all working in the service of the neoliberal state, will not rest until blogs such as this one are wiped off the internet and opposition activists are either squelched or, short of that, locked up (or possibly even assassinated) on domestic Gitmos.
