A matter of censorship
To the editor:
It has come to my attention lately that the Daily Mining Gazette editor has declined printing material that questions the current lockdown protocols and coronavirus narrative. This represents the same kind of censorship that has been unleashed on the American public by the mainstream media, social network platforms, and big tech venues. One would think that there is (has been) some kind of master plan unfolding.
I would have thought that a small hometown newspaper would somehow be exempt from this type of behavior. Unfortunately, when I occasionally purchase a newspaper, I am confronted with a plethora of the engineered narrative parroting articles from the associated press. Given the fact that there is an abundance of opposing material from scientists, medical and law practitioners, product company CEOs and staff, and other reputable sources, then there should be open dialogue and representation in the local press. Apparently one of the Gazette’s associate editors had a frantic reaction to one of the rare mentions of an opposing opinion posted as a full page release on January 9/10.
If someone wants to get a feel for what freedom from the lockdown narrative might look and feel like, simply ask those who have been censored by the Gazette. I happen to know that an excellent film is being created and for now one can internet search for it at “planetlockdownfilm.com,” to watch unedited interviews. Quote from website: “Planet Lockdown is a documentary about the situation we are in today.” For newcomers, the Jay Richards (a past guest speaker at MTU) interview is a good place to start.
Let’s move our community back to the basics of the unalienable rights of life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness. Together with the help of the Daily Mining Gazette, we can turn the tide and help make Orwell fiction again.
