WASHINGTON, D.C., January 11, 2021 (LifeSiteNews) — For years, forces on the left have let it be known that they aim not only to silence conservatives; they aim to punish and outlaw those who oppose their inhuman ideology.
Shortly after retaking the White House in 2013, President Barack Hussein Obama initiated a plan to win back Democrat control of the U.S. House of Representatives in order to enable his Administration to, according to The Washington Post, “push forward with a progressive agenda on gun control, immigration, climate change and the economy during his final two years in office.”
His goal at the time was simply to exterminate any vestiges of Republican power in the nation’s capital.
“The Obama strategy is maximum pain for political gain,” observed Newt Gingrich at the time in a radio interview with Sean Hannity. “[Obama] is deliberately deciding to impose the worst possible cuts in order to maximize the pain level on the American people.”
“For perhaps the first time in the history of the United States, it is in the political interest of a president to inflict maximum pain on the American people,” wrote the Washington Examiner’s Conn Carroll.
Despite the efforts of Republicans in Congress, Democrats shut down national parks and memorials, and sabotaged funding for the National Institutes of Health and programs for America’s Veterans.
The maliciousness of Obama, Nancy Pelosi, and Harry Reid was vividly displayed when WWII veterans came to D.C. in October 2013 to protest the denial of access to health care and other services.
When they arrived they found that Obama had ordered the U.S. Park Service to shut down and wall off all of D.C.’s open-air war memorials on the National Mall to prevent WWII, Korean War, and Vietnam Vets in their sixties to their nineties, often in wheelchairs, from paying homage to their fallen comrades.
And when private citizens, aghast at the inhumane treatment of our aging veterans, had earlier pitched in to provide porta potties for the vets because of the locked public restrooms, delivery was denied by the U.S. Park Service, preventing access to the most basic of human needs.
“Human dignity be damned. Care and compassion be damned. Let elderly vets soil themselves,” I wrote at the time in an American Thinker article. A Creators Syndicate commentary called the action “sadistic.”
For months, vets and active military were the focus of the administration’s contempt, suffering one indignity after another. Yet Democrats clearly did not care. The vets and the rest of America were nameless casualties of the progressives’ insatiable hunger for power.
Virtue signaling is out; contempt and malicious power displays are in
But now we are witnessing something much bigger than the Democrats’ petulant, adolescent fit of 2013.
PETITION UPDATE (2/23/21) -
LifeSite has signed on to a Media Research Center (MRC) letter to all 50 state Attorneys General, calling for an investigation into Big Tech.
Google, Facebook, and Twitter have monopolized the industry, and are using their influence to collect user data, suppress content, and silence those who voice ideas and beliefs counter to their own.
As we urged prior, action must be taken to combat these efforts, and that is why we’ve joined the MRC in this fight.
Please take a couple of minutes to READ this LifeSiteNews article about MRC's initiative: https://www.lifesitenews.com/news/lifesite-joins-effort-asking-state-attorneys-general-to-investigate-big-tech-for-deceptive-trade-practices
Then, please SIGN and STOP using Twitter, Facebook, Google (YouTube) and Amazon to take back your privacy and freedom of speech!
PETITION UPDATE (2/9/21) -
YouTube just completely removed the LifeSiteNews YouTube channel. This isn’t a ban, every single one of our videos is completely gone. Being completely removed from YouTube means we’ve lost access to 300,000+ followers.
This is the latest and appalling affront to free speech which is happening to many conservative and Christian organizations.
Please SIGN this petition and STOP using YouTube, Twitter, Facebook, Google (owner of YouTube) and Amazon to take back your privacy and freedom of speech!
We are not going to take this lying down!
Thankfully, we have backups of all our videos:

PETITION UPDATE (1/26/20) -
Twitter has again locked LifeSiteNews out of two of our accounts on the platform for displaying a message noting that President Joe Biden’s newly named Assistant Secretary of Health “Rachel” Levine is a man.
Both accounts displayed a simple message which read: “Biden names transgender ‘woman’ as Assistant Secretary of Health. ‘Rachel’ Levine is a father of two who divorced his wife in 2013 after 30 years of marriage.” The tweets also included a link to LifeSite’s article Biden names transgender ‘woman’ as Assistant Secretary of Health, and contained part of the opening sentence of that article, “Joe Biden has announced his intention to appoint a gender-confused man” as Assistant Secretary of Health.
For stating biological or Biblical truths, Twitter and Big Tech are trying to shut down conservative voices.
Therefore, it is now more important than ever to consider dumping Twitter, Google (who own YouTube) and Facebook. To be clear: LifeSite is still using Twitter and Big Tech to encourage others to migrate away from these illiberal platforms.
This is not the first time that LifeSiteNews has been censored by Twitter. In December 2019, Twitter indefinitely suspended our account for a tweet that linked to an article on transgender activist Jonathan “Jessica” Yaniv.
At the time, Twitter gave LifeSite the option to delete the tweet and reactivate our account right away. LifeSite remained steadfast that the tweet did not violate any of the company’s “rules and policies,” and sought several appeals with Twitter, while looking into legal action against the company.
And, while LifeSite's account was eventually restored, we must now consider what course of action we will pursue in this case, over and above appealing the ban.
Meanwhile, since taking office on Wednesday last week, Joe Biden has already signed an executive order which will force women’s athletic programs, restrooms, and locker rooms to be open to men. He has also turned back the Trump administration’s policy protecting women’s sports programs in schools.
Last week, LifeSite was banned for two weeks from our YouTube channel, after the site determined that one of our videos about vaccines violated YouTube’s “community guidelines.” We are also in the middle of appealing this ban.
Please considering SIGNING and SHARING this petition. Thank you!
Twitter just deplatformed President Trump premanently! And, other conservatives, including General Flynn and Sidney Powell, were also summarily deplatformed.
Conservatives, Christians and freedom-loving Americans of all political persuasions must now take a decision to preserve their free speech AND their ability to peaceably assemble by dumping Twitter and Big Tech, and by finding other good alternatives to communicate with each other and share their opinions.
Please SIGN our petition-pledge to Dump Twitter and Big Tech, and take back your freedom of speech and privacy. [CLICK HERE for our "Goodbye Google" resources page to find good alternatives to Twitter, Facebook, Amazon, and Google!]
When you use Twitter or Facebook to communicate, and, or, Google and Amazon to search for something online, these companies can stifle your ability to share your thoughts and opinions and manipulate your search results, threatening your privacy, your freedom of speech, and even our democracy.
Evidence suggests that Twitter and Facebook's 'community guidelines' are selectively enforced against conservatives and Christians, while Google rigs their search algorithms to direct traffic away from conservative and Christian websites, effectively choking traffic to those sites.
Simply put, Twitter, Facebook, Google (who owns YouTube) and Amazon appear to be actively suppressing access to pro-freedom, pro-family and pro-life news and opinion.
Don't contribute to this assault on democracy: Stop using Twitter, Facebook, Google and Amazon as your default social media platforms and search engine! [CLICK HERE to find a good alternative to Google.]
To repeat: a few liberal and completely unaccountable computer programmers in Silicon Valley are dictating what we do and do not see in our Twitter and Facebook feeds, and in our Google searches.
We, here, at LifeSite, also recently had our Twitter account suspended by the company over "misgendering" a man who claims to be a woman.
LifeSite has also experienced a fall-off in Google search-related traffic since the company updated its search algorithms at the beginning of May.
And, since the November election, Twitter and Big Tech appear to have dramatically INCREASED their censorship of conservatives and Christians as the President Trump disputed the results of the election and when evidence of election fraud began to mount.
Now, it seems likely that they are trying to cut-off conservative leaders (like President Trump) from conservatives on the ground, and effectively exclude us from the national conversation.
But, this tactic will not work. Because Twitter, Facebook, Google and Amazon are not the only game in town! There are a good number of excellent alternatives which we list in our 'Goodbye Google' Resources page.
The great irony is that, while Twitter, Facebook, Google and Amazon executives talk a lot about maintaining freedom of speech and diversity, in fact, these hypocrites are ATTACKING free speech point-blank!
This kind of manipulation poses a lethal threat to our democracy, but as we see so clearly now, Twitter and Big Tech have shown no hesitation in excluding conservatives and Christians from the public square.
So, at this point, the only way to stop Twitter, Facebook, Google and Amazon is to quit using their platform.
Please SIGN and SHARE this petition to pledge to stop using Twitter and Big Tech. Then, please CLICK HERE to find alternative search engines and social media platforms. Thank you!

After years of using the device of public “virtue signaling” in order to display their self-deceived moral superiority as a means to influence society, progressives are now unselfconsciously showing their raw contempt for Americans who don’t think like they do.
It’s no longer just politicians shutting down healthcare and restrooms. The entire progressive government-Big Tech/social media-corporate complex has arrayed itself against conservatives and all Americans who resist them.
During his 2008 presidential campaign, candidate Obama sent red flags up all over the country when he strongly proposed “a civilian national security force.”
“We cannot continue to rely on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives we’ve set,” Obama said. “We’ve got to have a civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded.”
That plank in the future president’s platform was quickly removed, but evidently not discarded. Antifa and Black Lives Matter have served that purpose very well. Democrats who praised them and refused to condemn their violence and destruction, essentially kighted them as their personal “civilian national security force,” even as cities burned and normal Americans were brutally attacked.
Major roadways have been blocked, business owners doing nothing more than protecting their property were assaulted, and elderly people enjoying dinner at outdoor cafes were berated and threatened by what is for all intents and purposes the Democrats’ “civilian national security force.”
Progressives no longer whisper their disgust for normal Americans who disagree with them; they are now shouting their hatred from the rooftops.
Friday Night Massacre
Progressive forces have gone further in recent days: The Kraken has been released — not by conservatives, as many had hoped for, but by progressives who have suddenly turned social media and America’s nearly universal reliance on it into a weapon of mass conservative destruction.
The American people’s well-intentioned but sheepish compliance with pandemic lockdowns and mask requirements have apparently emboldened the titans of tech working in conjunction with government overlords to take drastic steps to beat back and squash their adversaries.
Beginning Friday night, social media giants began killing off conservative voices from their platforms. President Trump’s presence was banned from virtually every social media platform, and other prominent conservatives saw their followers drastically reduced.
Corporate America quickly joined in and began exerting its muscle.
Parler was sentenced to death (but vowed to rebuild from scratch) by an Amazon, Apple, and Google firing squad;
Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) revealed that publishing giant Simon & Schuster canceled his book contract;
Forbes’ chief content officer issued a warning against hiring Kayleigh McEnany or any other Trump administration official;
Delta Airlines reportedly ejected Trump supporters from one of its flights simply for having a private discussion about their support for President Trump.
Expect the public condemnations and expulsions of conservatives and conservative influence to continue for the foreseeable future.
Do not allow yourself to become demoralized.
