“The idea of a shadow ban is that you ban someone but they don’t know they’ve been banned, because they keep posting and no one sees their content…So, they just think that no one is engaging with their content, when in reality, no one is seeing it.”
(Robert Knight – Townhall) Since November 2016, the Deep State and its media allies have spent considerable time and money cultivating animus toward President Trump and the Republican-led Congress among younger voters.
Many Millennials came unglued in the wake of the election and still are. The Left is counting on their turning out to elect progressives in November. Social media bristle with anti-Trump and anti-conservative invectives, and some of it spills over into anti-American rants.
As author William J. Federer explains, animus toward their own country and free market capitalism among many younger Americans – even Christians – is no accident but the result of a conditioning process that begins in the elementary and secondary schools and goes into overdrive in universities.
“There is actually a socialist-communist tactic called ‘deconstruction,’ where you separate a people from their past, get them into a neutral position where they do not remember where they came from, then you can easily brainwash them into whatever future you have planned for them,” he writes in his book, “Who Is the King in America and Who Are the Counselors to the King?” (Amerisearch Inc., 2017).
This dovetails with the socialist credo to build the “new socialist man” on the ashes of previous societies. It’s why the Left tears down statues and recasts great figures of the past like Christopher Columbus and Thomas Jefferson as monsters – if they mention them at all in the history textbooks.
