Limbaugh predicts the left will soon attempt to censor and de-platform him

The mainstream media, in conjunction with Big Tech, clearly view themselves as the gatekeepers of information to the American public, and their longstanding effort to silence and suppress voices that stray from the approved narrative has kicked into overdrive.

Talk radio host Rush Limbaugh noted the escalation of the information war and predicted that he, and others like him on the right, should expect to be targeted in the near future with the wrath of the left-wing elite intent on squelching dissenting voices, WND reported.

Silencing dissent

Limbaugh made his warning in response to media appearances over the weekend from Democratic Pennsylvania Lt. Gov. John Fetterman as well as former Facebook chief security officer Alex Stamos, both of whom charged conservatives with lying and spreading disinformation among the American public — a “crime” worthy of being censored and de-platformed.

Speaking Sunday with CNN’s Brian Stelter, Stamos compared President Donald Trump’s “violent extremist” supporters on social media to members of ISIS.

“We have to turn down the capability of these conservative influencers to reach these huge audiences,” he said.

“There are people on YouTube, for example, that have a larger audience than daytime CNN, and they are extremely radical and pushing extremely radical views,” Stamos lamented. “So it’s up to the Facebooks and YouTubes, in particular, to think about whether or not they want to be effectively cable networks for disinformation.”

The former Facebook official also raised the “problem” of conservative-leaning media outlets like Newsmax and One America News as having “freedom of speech, but I’m not sure we need Verizon, AT&T, Comcast and such to be bringing them into tens of millions of homes. This is allowing people to seek out information if they really want to, but not pushing it into their faces. I think it’s where we’re gonna have to go here.”

Limbaugh predicts he’s next

“If you dissent, you’re a domestic terrorist, folks. If you dissent from whatever it is the Democrat Party today believes, they are claiming they have a right to shut you down, to delete your tweets,” Limbaugh said during his program on Monday.

After playing the audio clip of Stamos’ remarks regarding Newsmax and OANN, the radio host said, “They may as well not have freedom of speech if you’re gonna say that they can’t have platforms that give them a basis to operate,” and proceeded to chide Stamos for either not understanding or not agreeing with the fundamental principles of free speech and the First Amendment.

“He said, ‘Look. It’s up to the Facebooks and YouTubes to think about whether or not they want to be effectively cable networks for disinformation.’ That’s what conservatism is, you see. Disinformation,” Limbaugh said. “‘We have got to turn down the capability of these conservative influencers to reach these huge audiences.’ They may as well be talking about me and radio stations. And they’ll get there eventually.”

“Right now we’re flying under the radar because these people don’t know what AM radio is, so they don’t feel threatened by it. When they figure it out, they’re gonna saying the same thing to our EIB affiliates that they’re now saying to Verizon, AT&T, and Comcast,” he predicted.

“‘Well, I mean, you know, Rush Limbaugh has the biggest audience of anybody in radio, and you gotta something about that. That’s out-of-control conservatism. We can’t let you do this,'” Limbaugh added in imitation of his detractors. “Yeah, that’s where we’re headed.”

  1. “Right now” the citizens of North Korea firmly believe that the little pudgy guy is the only thing saving them from that evil American empire. Kim Jong has TOTAL control of all information!
    A lot of Americans have died, all over the world to prevent that. Now are we going to let China and Soros treat us like that?

  2. You will soon hear people whining about how things are going downhill.
    Wait until everything turns into a trip to the DMV ! Wait for your number !
    But right now … it’s party time !
    FREE STUFF for everybody. World wide invitation . Let’s see what following this gloomy road leads to.
    Will it be called NEW CHINA ?

  4. We’ve been having our ‘freedom of speech’ chipped away at for years now by ‘liberals’. Starting with it being ‘politically incorrect’ to say what-ever they didn’t want to hear. At first, something of a ‘joke’ but–as it gains momentum, not ‘funny’ anymore. Now, it seems, it’s OK for ‘liberals’ to say whatever they wish, no ‘proof’ needed as to whether it’s accurate or not but, if you say the ‘opposite’–not ‘allowed’ anymore. What is wrong with people who can’t accept that not ‘everyone’ agrees with them? It’s been let go far too long, to the point where they’re now demanding people be ‘punished’ for not agreeing with them. Not acceptable.

  5. It certainly is hypocritical that some little known comedienne can have a photo op made of her holding up a decapitated bloody head that resembles President Trump and everyone thinks it is funny or great because it is what they agree with. A Conservative comments on a topic liberals do not agree with and all of a sudden we are ¨domestic terrorists¨ and will be banned from Facebook, Twitter and You Tube. Why do they think they can strip away our freedom of speech so easily? Will the Constitution be next? Think about it folks, one freedom at a time and soon there will be no freedoms!


  7. Communism is alive and well here in the USA. Kreuschev was correct in 1965, when he was banging his shoe on the podium. He said America is going to become Communist all on it’s own.
    Just listen to the rhetoric from members of our government, who wish to silence probably 1/2 of the country. These elected people think they should be able to silence a huge part of the population.
    But Communists always feel emboldened, after they’ve just cheated something like this past election.
    The Supreme Court, who decided not to listen to the fraud, will be the next ones who they go after. John Roberts thought his position was safe, but little does he realize that Justice Alito was correct. By not atleast hearing about the fraud, there is the end of Democracy.

  8. All this revolves around the Catholic Church.
    Look who is the majority in the Government ,
    & Supreme Court.
    Look at the Book “Keys of this Blood” by Malachi Martin
    Read click on the book & read the info about it.
    Uphold the Constitution that is laughable.
    They believe the end justifies the means.
    Not Biblical .

  9. Guys: take heed what the liberals are complaining about ! That can’t get enough audience for their shows ! Whose fault is this ? Must be the conservatives ! Ya right ! The liberals must take note that they must put some meat in their conversations ! Put some thing of value : something worth hearing ! More about our culture . Something more interesting . Not badmouthing the conservatives ! You will succeed ! You can’t gain overnight popularity !

  10. I challenge CNN to give me true and honest facts backIing up their statements the election was fair and not rigged Do some honest searching and good journalism I would welcome you to make me trust AGAIN. Prove to me my vote counted in the GA primary I mailed it in with my daughters her showed up and mine was not there the day of the election

  11. CNN doesn’t know the truth. Have been lying for years. A bunch of hacks paid by other countries who hate America and President Trump. If they think the American people will roll over for communism they are in for a big surprise.

  12. We Must stop the Fascists on the Left for trying desperately and pathetically to Erase Us. The Dems and Cohorts are a Clear and Present Danger to Our Country. What are They So Afraid of, Trump’s Power coming back with 75 million Americans behind him?

  13. Fetterman and Stamos charge conservatives with lying and spreading “disinformation”, meaning all speech that doesn’t agree with them. Like all fascists, those on the left can only survive when their critics are silenced.
    Last week an innocuous pro-Trump post of mine was removed without explanation from a major comments page, a first in my long life.
