Disinformation and the Lincoln Censorship Solution

The funny thing about Leftists is that they are more effective because they are clear-minded. They are abusers; they know this, and therefore they skip all the neurosis and drama and simply do what they need to do. That is not to say that they are mentally well, because the opposite is true, just that they are able to do their most basic function well.

Any abuser worth her salt will cry out as she slaps you. File that under narcissism or codependency, but really it is simply intelligent strategy. Play the victim while taking advantage of the situation and you still remain in control and get what you want.

Consequently any time you hear them rambling on about “freedom,” you know they are talking about a devious path to enslave you; when they talk about “equality,” they mean taking from the useful to give to the useless; when they speak of “compassion” and “tolerance,” they mean for themselves while they squash others.

For a case in point, consider the origin of American censorship that suspiciously resembles the “disinformation” accusations thrown around today:

Whereas there has been wickedly and traitorously printed and published this morning in the New York World and New York Journal of Commerce, newspapers printed and published in the city of New York, a false and spurious proclamation purporting to be signed by the President and to be countersigned by the Secretary of State, which publication is of a treasonable nature, designed to give aid and comfort to the enemies of the United States and to the rebels now at war against the Government and their aiders and abettors, you are therefore hereby commanded forthwith to arrest and imprison in any fort or military prison in your command the editors, proprietors, and publishers of the aforesaid newspapers, and all such persons as, after public notice has been given of the falsehood of said publication, print and publish the same with intent to give aid and comfort to the enemy; and you will hold the persons so arrested in close custody until they can be brought to trial before a military commission for their offense. You will also take possession by military force of the printing establishments of the New York World and Journal of Commerce, and hold the same until further orders, and prohibit any further publication therefrom.

Criticism of Lincoln was not permissible beyond a certain point; this is classic Leftist inversion, in that the goal of having a free press becomes the goal of defending the free press and then the goal of squashing enemies of the free press, which includes those who did not buy into Mr Lincon’s peace, love, equality, and tolerance trip.

In a day and age where our governments collude with social media in order to suppress “disinformation,” it is worth remembering that a Leftist never changes its spots. The people today raving about Medicare and Social Security are the same ones who executed whole families in France and Russia, and they will do it again if you give them a chance.
