Many are struggling in this economy. My family is among them. Please support what we’re doing here and help us to continue to spread the truth Americans need to read and hear.
Actor James Woods has been a strong conservative voice on Twitter for years, but following a suspension over a Tweet and the subsequent deletion of that Tweet, it appears Woods is throwing in the towel for good.
“Twitter demanded that I rescind my tweet paraphrasing Emerson,” James Woods said in a statement to The Daily Wire. “It now seems they have chosen to delete that tweet from my account without my permission. Until free speech is allowed on Twitter, I will not be permitted to participate in our democracy with my voice. As long as Jack Dorsey remains the coward he seems to be, my Twitter days are in the past.”
It’s a free country (for now) and I respect his decision, but it’s still the wrong approach in my humble opinion. Waiting for free speech to be allowed on Twitter is like waiting Iran to recognize Israel’s right to exist. Neither will happen any time soon. He might as well delete is account.
As I noted the other day, the only proper way to fight the tech giants is to persevere despite their purging, censoring, and silencing. Yes, they hate conservatives. Yes, it’s unfair. But we have the truth on our side. We must continue to hammer home the fact that we’re right and they’re wrong. While we push for alternatives to grow, giving up on the powerful four players in America’s battle over free thought (Google, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube) is not a solution.
We cannot succumb to our frustration over unfairness. These companies laid the trap by letting us say and do what we wanted for years. We shouldn’t have participated in consolidating the power of digital messaging into the hands of people who oppose our views, but we did and now we’re facing the consequences. But that doesn’t mean we need to give up on the fight. The odds are stacked against us just as they were before the formation of our nation, but brave men and women have the power to push forward.
Any time a strong voice spreading the right message is lost over frustration because the system isn’t fair, it’s a win for the left. James Woods can do as he sees fit. I just wish he didn’t give up on this particular battle.
They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We just launched a GiveSendGo page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
