“Chris Hedges and Matt Taibbi are both what would, until very recently, be considered mainstream journalists. Now they see themselves on the outside of a monolithic system where information has been completely politicized to the point of it being, in Taibbi’s words, ‘a one-party media environment.’ I rather doubt that either of them are Trump supporters, but they realize that if Trump loses, things will get even worse. Self-censorship, which is undoubtedly already high, will increase as lines that cannot be crossed without ending one’s career touch on ever more subjects.” – Kevin MacDonald, “Chris Hedges and Matt Taibbi: Media as propaganda and censorship bureau: The Jewish angle” – Occidental Observer, November 1st, 2020.

“Justice Devlin of the Court of Queen’s Bench ruled on September 8, 2020 that the Foothills County’s subjective views of aesthetics justified violating the constitutionally protected right of freedom of expression of landowners on their own property.” – Extract from Justice Centre for Constitutional Freedoms email message “Landowners appeal court ruling that bans trailer signs on private property” dated October 23rd, 2020.

“Social media billionaires are laying the groundwork for conformity of thought. People are being fired for saying something as innocuous as ‘all lives matter.’ That is just the beginning. Soon wild-eyed Democratic Party functionaries will be unleashed to root out dissenters. If you don’t espouse leftist talking points, you won’t be able to earn a living. We may suffer through a political inquisition in which conservatives are given a chance to confess and recant. Unrepentant conservatives could be deported and replaced by compliant immigrants from the Third World.” – Ed Brodow, “If Biden wins, America and China will be indistinguishable” – Clash Daily, October 30th, 2020.

“During today’s session, Glasgow Tory MSP and Committee Convenor Adam Tomkins questioned the Scottish Justice Secretary on how you can commit an offence of public order in private… It comes after (Scottish Justice Secretary) Mr Yousaf (?! -JG) suggested during the committee session that he would be in favour of the stirring up offences applying inside home dwellings… Mr Tomkins continued: ‘When we are considering the scope of the criminal law in this Parliament, we’ve got to be careful not to under criminalise and also guard against overcriminalisation and make sure we are not inadvertently rendering criminal that we think ought to be free to do’.” – Daily Express, quoted by National Vanguard in “New Scottish hate crime law could see people prosecuted for expressing views in own homes” – October 29th, 2020.
