(Natural News) The false flag “insurrection” that took place at the United States Capitol on Jan. 6 is being used by the mainstream media as a catch-all excuse to demand that all competing platforms of communication be banned for the “safety” and “security” of the country.
After successfully lobbying to get Parler, a free speech alternative to Twitter, banned from both major smartphone app stores, the left-wing media is now going after Signal and Telegram, two encrypted messaging apps that keep private text conversations hidden from prying eyes.
The New York Times published a propaganda piece the other day that is dripping with fear-mongering over how these two apps might be used by “insurrectionists” to stage more “sieges” against government buildings where politicians are known to make appearances.
The Times warns against Proud Boys founder Gavin McInnes, who recently announced his return to Telegram. Elon Musk of Tesla fame also publicly encouraged his Twitter followers and others to “[u]se Signal.”
Switching to these alternative platforms means less traffic and revenue for Twitter and Facebook, not to mention more unfavorable opinions about legacy media operations like the Times that rely on Big Tech platforms to steer social media users away from independent media outlets.
Big Propaganda, as you might call it, depends upon a total media monopoly in order to survive. And platforms like Signal and Telegram threaten that monopoly, which is why they are being vilified as a “danger” to “democracy.”
