Everywhere you turn, everyone is talking about disinformation. On the new platform Clubhouse, entire rooms are dedicated to figuring out how to combat the sinister disinformation that is threatening the very fabric of our society.
According to the Left, it was disinformation that led to the fiasco that occurred on January 6th at the Capitol Building. Now, to be clear, they’ve redefined the world “disinformation” to mean whatever doesn’t fit their narrative. They begin with the presupposition that they are correct, and then label anything that goes against their propaganda as “fake news” or “disinformation.”
The same thing can be applied to virtually every aspect of COVID-19. Think about it, the Left says that it’s disinformation whenever we cite the fact that it came from Wuhan, China or that face masks are useless… or even that there are serious side effects with the COVID-19 vaccines. That is all considered “false information”… despite the fact each of these are factually accurate.
Clearly, there’s a danger in labeling true statements and disinformation. Doing so discredits the claim before anyone can even “fact check” to see whether it is true or not. The Left has mastered the art of controlling the narrative, discrediting all opposing thought as either racist or disinformation. Only the official narrative from the Democrat Party is considered to be truth.
Now, let’s take a look at actual disinformation… actual false statements. Should we ban all disinformation from American society? Should Twitter censor false information? What do we do with actual cases of disinformation?
I would make the case that it is actually dangerous to ban “disinformation.” Here’s why: Who decides what is true or false? Whoever is in power at that time. Throughout history we’ve seen what happens if you give centralized control of the information that people consume… it is hijacked and manipulated so that that those in power retain indefinite control. Take a look at the nation of China today… the CCP is the arbiter or truth in their nation, which gives them complete control over the populous.
We cannot allow this to happen in the United States of America. Our Founding Fathers were extremely clear not only in the concept of Free Speech, but also Freedom of the Press. This means that the government cannot restrict or “fact check” people from putting forth what they believe is truth. The exception to this is knowingly slandering someone… or, in other words, saying something that you know is false in order to cause harm to someone else.
If we shutdown “disinformation,” we’ll give centralized control of the narrative to the Federal Government and the Elitist Corporations who run this country. Is that really the world that we want to live in? This will make it to where all we get is propaganda. Don’t believe me? Just turn on any of the mainstream media outlets and you’ll see exactly what I’m talking about. All the networks are saying the exact same thing, over and over again. It’s essentially state-run media.
Now is the time to support independent news sources, such as NOQ Report, The GateKeepers and Freedom First Network. We producing shows and writing articles to report on the actual news and provide expert commentary to help you understand what is actually going on. We’ve been targeted for taking this stand, being deplatformed from companies such as YouTube, Spotify and Transistor.
Our mission must continue, however, finding new ways to bypass the restrictions put in place by these Big Leftist Corporations. It takes innovation and constant brainstorming, always trying to be a step ahead of the censors. This is a whole new world we find ourselves in, but if we want to save America and reinstate Freedom for All, the battle over the soul and minds of the people is the fight we must win.
YouTube, Spotify, and other Big Tech platforms are taking Freedom First Network down
It’s no secret we speak our minds and bring on guests who do the same. That’s one of the biggest reasons we put together the Freedom First Network in the first place. There are far too many news outlets, including so-called “conservative” media companies, who are so beholden to Big Tech that they temper their perspectives at best and outright coverup the truth at worst. Many, as you all know, will blatantly lie in order to maintain the narrative that supports the radical agenda taking over much of the United States.
We have had our YouTube channel taken down. Many of our shows have been suppressed or removed by Facebook and Twitter. Spotify banned one of our shows completely from their platform. Google hates us. We’ve even been censored by some of the smaller players like Medium, Transistor, and Captivate. But we stand behind our reporting and perspectives and we refuse to bow down to Big Tech tyranny for the sake of pageviews or video plays.
This isn’t the easiest road to travel, especially for a media company that is so new. We launched Freedom First Network in 2020 to fight against the very censorship that we’re seeing so widespread today. We have found great homes for our content on freer speech platforms like Rumble and we’re putting our best efforts forward into building our presence on Locals. Nevertheless, we cannot do it alone. We need help.
One of the things cofounders Jeff Dornik and JD Rucker agreed to from the start was to never be the pawns of companies that do not embrace our worldview. Finding advertisers and affiliates is easy; we receive requests by companies wanting to be pushed on our shows every day. But it’s important to us that we’re promoting companies, services, and products that are beneficial to maintaining a Freedom First stance in America. As a result, we do not take on sponsors easily. We would rather rely on our own products like Freedom First Coffee and the support of our wonderful viewers, listeners, and readers.
Those who want to support us and help keep the fight for America’s future moving forward can do so by donating through our Locals page. There, you can donate monthly or one-time. Some have told us to use Patreon or GoFundMe, but both of those platforms have demonstrated a hatred for free speech. Locals does not. They embrace it. We encourage everyone to join us on Locals, but donations are greatly appreciated as well. We do not have day jobs. Our fight for freedom is a full-time gig.
Please feel free to reach out to us through our contact form. It goes directly to our founders, so if you’re interested in getting involved, investing, sponsoring, or even bringing a show to our network, let us know. May God Bless the United States of America!
