Liberal journalist Glenn Greenwald scorched the left-wing establishment and Big Tech for taking totalitarian measures against conservatives.
Greenwald condemned Big Tech after multiple platforms purged sitting President Donald Trump. “A handful of Silicon Valley oligarchs decide who can and cannot be heard, including the President of the United States. They exert this power unilaterally, with no standards, accountability or appeal,” Greenwald lamented in a Jan. 7 tweet. He warned followers on Jan. 8: “The centralized power over US democracy (and other democracies) concentrated in the hands of a tiny number of unaccountable Silicon Valley oligarchs is stunning, unprecedented and unsustainable.”
The same day, Greenwald observed that the establishment left, under Biden, is launching a new totalitarian “War on Terror” against its political enemies:
“There’s absolutely a new War on Terror being initiated — it’d been lurking for awhile, but it’s accelerating now for obvious reasons. This new one is aimed inward, domestically. It entails many of the same frameworks.”
Greenwald followed up by noting that America will now be ruled by an oppressive silence which seeks to punish dissenters:
“I spent the first decade of my journalism career devoted to exposing and denouncing the excesses of the first War on Terror, and I see exactly the same tactics forming:
“If you question or are concerned about these new powers, you’ll be branded as sympathetic to the terrorists.”
This comes after Twitter banned Trump. “After close review of recent Tweets from the @realDonaldTrump account and the context around them we have permanently suspended the account due to the risk of further incitement of violence,” Twitter announced on Jan. 8.
