There are a lot of valid concerns regarding the COVID-19 vaccines that have been rolling out, yet the Big Tech and Social Media companies have been censoring anyone that happens to raise those concerns. Content creators are expected to only promote the mainstream narrative that they are perfectly safe, despite the fact that there are no FDA-approved vaccines to prevent COVID-19 and the ones on the market have not been tested. If it turns out that our concerns are true, should these tech companies be held responsible for keeping this information away from the American people?
If you were to listen to the mainstream media, which I do not recommend, you would think that the COVID-19 vaccine is a miracle drug that has zero side effects and protects you from getting and spreading the coronavirus. Social media is filled with everyone posting their “vaccine selfie” as they get their shot, virtue signaling to the world that they are doing their part to save humanity.
Big Tech and Social Media have also done their part in pushing the pro-vax narrative, making sure that their algorithms and recommended stories promote and encourage people to get their vaccines, all while suppressing, deleting and even deplatforming content that raises any type of concern, no matter how legitimate they might be. In this new world of 2021, disinformation is considered anything that goes against the globalist narrative.
Given the fact that we live in a free nation with a Constitutional Right that gives us the freedom of speech, you would think that Americans would be free to share their views freely, without restriction. Unfortunately, if that’s what you thought, you would be wrong. In today’s version of “America,” your speech is not protected and the powers-that-be do not recognize the authority of the Constitution of the United States of America.
However, an interesting aspect this conversation is what is being censored. There are numerous doctors that I have personally spoken to that have been censored, suppressed or completely kicked off of social media for raising concerns about the face mask mandates, lockdowns and the COVID-19 vaccines. Think about this for a second… a 20-something tech nerd sitting in front of a computer in Silicon Valley is overriding the medical expertise of doctors with decades of study and experience, simply because they disagree with them. That is a scary world to live in!
For me personally, the biggest concern that I have with the COVID-19 vaccine is that it is not FDA approve and has not gone through proper testing. One of my biggest criticisms of Donald Trump’s presidency was making the vaccines available on an emergency use basis, which gave way for hundreds of millions of Americans to be injected with an experimental drug. Due to the wording being used (FDA approved for emergency use), Americans think that what is being injected into their bodies is perfectly safe. The sad reality is that we do not know whether it is or not, due to the fact that it has not gone through the proper testing to know the long-term effects.
Many people have been posting that they got their vaccine three weeks ago and have not had any side effects. That’s great and all, but my concern is what will happen in five years. Will there be future birth defects, rare disease contracted or will your body simply attack itself, as have been suggested by multiple medical doctors doing research on the science of these vaccines.
Now, everything is speculative today… simply because these vaccines have not been properly tested. Even the FDA has on their website that there are no FDA-approved vaccines to prevent or treat COVID-19. If you get the “vaccine,” which technically isn’t even a vaccine, you sign that you wave your right to sue if there are any side effects. Essentially, the manufacturers have ZERO accountability for the effectiveness or safety of what you are injecting into your body.
After all of this consideration, however, I’m left with this thought: Should Big Tech and Social Media companies be held responsible if any of the concerns by COVID-19 vaccine critics turn out to be true? Think about it: they’ve suppressed this information and kept the American people from seeing it. Instead of allowing everyone to see both sides of the argument and make up their own minds, they’ve forced one particular narrative down our throats, taking away our ability to make decisions that we believe are best for us and our families.
I would argue that they should be held liable for any negative effects from these vaccines. They’ve brainwashed and misled people into thinking that there are no potential dangers for getting these injections. They view us as nothing more than dumb and blind sheep that cannot think for ourselves. By taking that approach, they are responsible if anything does go wrong.
Big Tech censorship has been expanding beyond just Conservatives… Christians are next!
While many of us have been warning about the coming persecution of Christians, I don’t think any of us thought that it would be ramping up so quickly. While we are luckily not facing physical persecution yet, such as beatings or death, we are facing censorship, deplatforming and even jail time in some instances. These are just the birth pangs of what is coming next.
While we still have a voice here at The GateKeepers, we are doing everything that we can to bypass the algorithmic walls put up by Big Tech and the Social Media companies like Twitter, Facebook and YouTube. Our videos used to get thousands of views across all of our platforms, while now they are being throttled and hardly getting distributed at all. An added wrinkle is that, while our video content is seeing lower views, traffic to our website has never been higher. Over the past year we’ve seen a 700% increase in traffic, and it’s been amazing to experience this kind of growth. Because of this, we’ll be launching GKTV very soon, hosting all of our shows exclusively on our platform.
While The GateKeepers started out as nothing more than a blog for me to post my articles relating to concerns within Christianity, it has now expanded into a full-fledged Christian podcast network featuring fifteen shows, a publishing company that has published three books over the past year and we are now hosting conferences on a regular basis. We’ve seen the addition of contributors to The GateKeepers such as Denise McAllister, Pastor Cary Gordon, Pastor Ken Peters, Dr Mike Spaulding, Dr Bobby Lopez and many other amazing Christian leaders. Our lineup of shows has expanded, as well, featuring shows such as The Shining Light Podcast, Conversations with Jeff, The Big Brown Gadfly, Battlefront: SouthGate and The Verum Monitae Report with Dr Mike Spaulding, in addition the the several other shows we also carry on The GateKeepers.
Everything that we do is for the purpose of expanding Biblical Christianity through the preaching of the Gospel, the exposition of God's Word and confronting error where it pops its ugly head within the Church. We are mission-focused first, and then we use technology, books, resources and events to accomplish and further the Gospel and Biblical theology.
While we’ve seen some amazing growth and expansion, we are also working hard to make this be a long-term play, and with that comes with how to fund our work here. I’ve intentionally not turned The GateKeepers into a non-profit organization because I don’t want to become beholden to the government, and I also don’t want to be focused on sending out fundraising letters constantly begging for money like most non-profit ministries do.
Instead, we have our online book store, are hosting online conferences and have our Plugged In membership program. Right now we are funded exclusively through these three different avenues. We are especially excited about our Plugged In membership, as this brings so much added value to you as a thank you for supporting our work here at The GateKeepers.
Becoming a Plugged In member provides access to the weekly episode of The GateKeepers Podcast, the monthly episode of Connected, free access to all of our online conferences, the recordings from previous online conferences and 30% off in The GK Store. If you would like to support us by becoming a Plugged In member, click here.
However, we’ve also been getting a lot of requests from supporters asking how they can donate to help support The GateKeepers. We are extremely grateful for these requests, as this will help us to expand even further and provide more quality Biblical content. If you would like to help support to The GateKeepers, you can donate through PayPal here.
