Are we seeing a trend toward online censorship, mostly of conservative speech? In this week’s boralogue, John looks at the fake news media and different examples of trial balloons being floated to test the censorship waters. The battle for freedom is underway in the West and it is embodied in the battle against free speech.

Do persecuted Christians receive the proper treatment when seeking asylum? Ken Timmerman (www.iran.org), President and CEO of the Foundation for Democracy in Iran, discusses his new book, ISIS Begins, a work of fiction that describes the real life interactions between Christians and the UN and how Muslims seeking asylum are treated far better.

Has there ever been a President more maligned than Donald Trump? Robert Spencer (www.jihadwatch.org), Director of Jihad Watch is back with us to show that another U.S. President was also treated as a bumpkin, an outsider to politics, and was disliked by both parties. The identity of that President may surprise you.

We revisit the topic of online censorship with Brian McNicoll (www.aim.org), Editor at Accuracy in Media who shows examples of speech suppression on Facebook and Twitter and discusses what can be done about it.

With great division in this country, are we headed for a second Civil War? Historian and novelist H.W. “Harry” Crocker III (www.regnery.com), shows how people from both sides in the 1860s were very similar in beliefs, unlike now where there is a deep ideological divide. The outrage and battles waged by the Left today could end up throwing us into a new Civil War.

John’s quote of the week:
What the Left doesn’t understand is: they think they’re going to come back into power at some point and then they’re going to declare war. The Right has been patient for a very long time. They have witnessed the shenanigans that have gone on both pre- and post-election. The Right will not tolerate that anymore.

In this week’s Section 6, John and Producer Steve discuss the origin of fake news, how media outlets manipulate words to create a narrative, and the nature of censorship.

American Not Say-ism

If we’re not careful, history will repeat itself. In this week’s boralogue, John coins a new term: Not Say-ism – when people tell you what to say and not say, what to believe and not believe, and what to think and not to think. He compares the Not Says of today with the German Nazis of the 1930s and 1940s and points out the logical fallacies at the core of American Not Says.

What happens when a nation’s heroes are evaluated on the flaws and not on their accomplishments? Author and historian Daniel Mallock (www.danielmallock.com) shows that the latest push by leftists to erase parts of American history by tearing down statues is undoing all the good efforts it took to heal our nation after the Civil War.

The Not-Says are strong on college campuses. Madeleine Kearns (www.spectator.co.uk), Contributing Journalist at the Spectator, compares her time at university in Scotland and New York, recalling that identity politics is rising while free speech is in decline.

Not-Says are picking up steam online as well, with Facebook and YouTube leading the way. Matt Agorist (www.thefreethoughtproject.com), Founder and Editor-in-Chief of the Free Thought Project, recounts his battle with Facebook after they blocked his page once for extremist content and another time for no stated reason. Censorship is growing in cyberspace.

After dissecting Diane Feinstein’s comments and a religious test for office in the clip of the week, John speaks with Joe Fioramonti (www.darksquare.com), Founder and Artist at Dark Square about his art work in support of the Hurricane Harvey victims in Houston. We round out the program with Steel Producer Steve and John discussing Twitter tantrums and whether those who engage in them should be fired.

John’s quote of the week:
The mental disorder of American Not-Say-ism is a compulsive totalitarian instinct in which its adherents simply cannot resist coming apart at the seams upon hearing a trigger word and launching into lengthy irrational tirades or engaging in violence against the ‘offender’ – all in the name of defending safe spaces and being tolerant!

This week on our Section 6 Intelligence Brief: climate change questions to ask, contradictions of liberal beliefs (Berkeley, the Pope, climate alarmists), upcoming geopolitical changes in the Middle East, policy issues in the Trump administration (taxes, immigration, etc).
