Glenn Greenwald: Censorship Has Become The Liberal Religion

Glenn Greenwald has a very different take on the rise of illiberalism:

Glenn Greenwald:

“American liberals are obsessed with finding ways to silence and censor their adversaries. Every week, if not every day, they have new targets they want de-platformed, banned, silenced, and otherwise prevented from speaking or being heard (by “liberals,” I mean the term of self-description used by the dominant wing of the Democratic Party).

For years, their preferred censorship tactic was to expand and distort the concept of “hate speech” to mean “views that make us uncomfortable,” and then demand that such “hateful” views be prohibited on that basis. For that reason, it is now common to hear Democrats assert, falsely, that the First Amendment’s guarantee of free speech does not protect “hate speech.” Their political culture has long inculcated them to believe that they can comfortably silence whatever views they arbitrarily place into this category without being guilty of censorship.

Constitutional illiteracy to the side, the “hate speech” framework for justifying censorship is now insufficient because liberals are eager to silence a much broader range of voices than those they can credibly accuse of being hateful. That is why the newest, and now most popular, censorship framework is to claim that their targets are guilty of spreading “misinformation” or “disinformation.” These terms, by design, have no clear or concise meaning. Like the term “terrorism,” it is their elasticity that makes them so useful. …

This “disinformation” term is reserved for those who question liberal pieties, not for those devoted to affirming them. That is the real functional definition of “disinformation” and of its little cousin, “misinformation.” It is not possible to disagree with liberals or see the world differently than they see it. The only two choices are unthinking submission to their dogma or acting as an agent of “disinformation.” Dissent does not exist to them; any deviation from their worldview is inherently dangerous — to the point that it cannot be heard. …”

The data proving a deeply radical authoritarian strain in Trump-era Democratic Party politics is ample and have been extensively reported here. …”

It is weird.

The people who can’t stand to hear any other opinion than their own and who are bent on silencing all dissent from their “mainstream” orthodoxy are the “liberals.” Meanwhile, those who support free speech and who have a more relaxed view toward differences of opinion are “bigots.”


  1. Censorship is also a conservative religion if they disagree with what you’re saying. Take DeSantis for instance, he is bragging about Florida having the toughest “antisemitism” laws and condemned the protestors in Florida for protesting the jew devil.

    DeSantis is worse than Trump when it comes to being in the pockets of the jew lobbies. If he had any balls whatsoever, he would have said…I may disagree with their message but I will support their right to say it. That’s what free speech is about. Again, a Republican politicians puts the jews 1st over the majority.

  2. It is a characteristic of artificial secondary realities, as primary reality reasserts itself, the more passionately the secondary reality is defended with coercion and censorship. Those in the grip of deep political illusion retain enough self-awareness to know that their identity is collapsing, starting to peel away like a cheap veneer. In their world of lies, truth is an existential threat to their sense of self-worth and their moral vanity.

  3. Glenn, MOTO, master of the obvious, tell us about Moshiach. Tell us what he is and how much you love him and the great and wonderful things he is going to you and your heinie. Tell us Glenn.

    • “tell us “ Who? All you anti-White demons who rejoice in the deaths of hundreds of the Irish on 911?

    • Many years ago, they created a an organization called “friends of the library”. They scoured all public libraries for any literature about their takeover, how many countries they have been kicked out of, and why, etc.

      As for calling leftists “liberals”, by using their terminology, you allow them to control the dialog. Call them what they are, marxists and parasites.

  4. The way more fundamental issue that Greenwald won’t address is that White Liberals understand that if the Native White Working Class Historic Majority wakes up and realizes that they are being demographically replaced by post-1965 Immigration Policy and realize that this is a policy of White Genocide….then the Native White American Working Class Majority might just rise and do something about it…..Whose side do you think the Jewish homosexual Glenn Grenwald will be on?

    • To put it another way…Greenwald doesn’t understand that the White Liberals want to physically liquidate the Native White Christian Working Class….What happens when the Native White Working Class figures this out?

      The Clash:”Give em enough rope….”

  5. Modern (twisted) concepts of “free speech” got their start with Jewish machinations to do away with blasphemy laws. These were 100% successful of course. Now that the long march through the institutions is a fait accompli, new blasphemy laws are being imposed. By and large these are inversions of the old Christian-based ones. The pattern is always the same: Subversion, followed by inversion.

  6. Holocaustianity is the national religion that the left, right, and somewhere in 5he middle all observe faithfully. The holohoax is sacrosanct in America

    Question the divinity of Jesus, and you will not have an angry mob at your door, or lose your job. Now try doing that with the holohoax.

    Jews know that the holohoax is the foundational myth of post-WWII ideological discourse. That’s why they gave forced holohoax “education” on public school students in the West, and there’s a holohoax museum in just about every state.

    There is a plethora of scientific and photographic evidence that disproves the lie of homicidal gas chambers and “Nazi death camps” narrative, but it is suppressed by TPTB from reaching the masses.

    If you’re seeking ‘ground zero’ of the birth of censorship, it’s the holohoax fable. It’s the only “historical event” that needs laws to protect it, and punish its heretics. How is that not a religion?
