The new buzzword among the Left is “disinformation.” The Elites are doing everything that they can to combat this supposed evil. While we should all should care about the truth, silencing and censoring speech you don’t like is not the answer. What is the solution? More speech. Right Speech.
Everywhere you turn, everyone is talking about disinformation. On the new platform Clubhouse, entire rooms are dedicated to figuring out how to combat the sinister disinformation that is threatening the very fabric of our society.
According to the Left, it was disinformation that led to the fiasco that occurred on January 6th at the Capitol Building. Now, to be clear, they’ve redefined the world “disinformation” to mean whatever doesn’t fit their narrative. They begin with the presupposition that they are correct, and then label anything that goes against their propaganda as “fake news” or “disinformation.”
The same thing can be applied to virtually every aspect of COVID-19. Think about it, the Left says that it’s disinformation whenever we cite the fact that it came from Wuhan, China or that face masks are useless… or even that there are serious side effects with the COVID-19 vaccines. That is all considered “false information”… despite the fact each of these are factually accurate.
Clearly, there’s a danger in labeling true statements and disinformation. Doing so discredits the claim before anyone can even “fact check” to see whether it is true or not. The Left has mastered the art of controlling the narrative, discrediting all opposing thought as either racist or disinformation. Only the official narrative from the Democrat Party is considered to be truth.
Now, let’s take a look at actual disinformation… actual false statements. Should we ban all disinformation from American society? Should Twitter censor false information? What do we do with actual cases of disinformation?
I would make the case that it is actually dangerous to ban “disinformation.” Here’s why: Who decides what is true or false? Whoever is in power at that time. Throughout history we’ve seen what happens if you give centralized control of the information that people consume… it is hijacked and manipulated so that that those in power retain indefinite control. Take a look at the nation of China today… the CCP is the arbiter or truth in their nation, which gives them complete control over the populous.
We cannot allow this to happen in the United States of America. Our Founding Fathers were extremely clear not only in the concept of Free Speech, but also Freedom of the Press. This means that the government cannot restrict or “fact check” people from putting forth what they believe is truth. The exception to this is knowingly slandering someone… or, in other words, saying something that you know is false in order to cause harm to someone else.
If we shutdown “disinformation,” we’ll give centralized control of the narrative to the Federal Government and the Elitist Corporations who run this country. Is that really the world that we want to live in? This will make it to where all we get is propaganda. Don’t believe me? Just turn on any of the mainstream media outlets and you’ll see exactly what I’m talking about. All the networks are saying the exact same thing, over and over again. It’s essentially state-run media.
Now is the time to support independent news sources, such as NOQ Report, The GateKeepers and Freedom First Network. We producing shows and writing articles to report on the actual news and provide expert commentary to help you understand what is actually going on. We’ve been targeted for taking this stand, being deplatformed from companies such as YouTube, Spotify and Transistor.
Our mission must continue, however, finding new ways to bypass the restrictions put in place by these Big Leftist Corporations. It takes innovation and constant brainstorming, always trying to be a step ahead of the censors. This is a whole new world we find ourselves in, but if we want to save America and reinstate Freedom for All, the battle over the soul and minds of the people is the fight we must win.
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, it has now expanded into a 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.
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.
