The biggest threats to liberty are people who purport to look out after our interest. These patricians of plebeians believe we’re too stupid to decipher propaganda from reality. Barack Obama – our lord and master – wants a “curator” to sort through websites to ensure your Facebook page is federally approved. Here is an excerpt from Brietbart:
He was critical of the current Wild West online environment where people could say anything on social media or on news websites.
“We are going to have to rebuild within this wild-wild-west-of-information flow some sort of curating function that people agree to,” he said.
Throughout his presidency, Obama has repeatedly complained about the existence of Fox News and Rush Limbaugh, causing division amongst Americans and making his job difficult, but he rarely offers a solution.
This time, Obama floated the notion of a media test during at a speech at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh on Thursday.
“There has to be, I think, some sort of way in which we can sort through information that passes some basic truthiness tests and those that we have to discard because they just don’t have any basis in anything that’s actually happening in the world,” he said.
Of course, this wouldn’t be considered censorship because Democrats look out for the “little people.” Thanks Big Brother.
