June 24, 2021 (American Thinker) – How far along are we into America's Maoist Cultural Revolution? Well, Tumblr encourages users to choose from 112 different genders and another 73 distinct sexual attractions that can be mixed and matched in order to “create the orientation that best describes you.” Hmmm. Math is racist. White Democrats think black Americans can't figure out how to get a voter ID. And Tumblr believes there are at least 8,176 gender identities — for right now, mind you. A year from now, Tumblr's corporate board members will be bending over backwards during public struggle sessions trying to convince the woke mob that they failed to previously appreciate that there really are 17,429 gender identities or 835,709 different sexual attractions because the white patriarchy infected their brains with encephalitic hate. Nothing lasts very long in Mao's America.
For the political left, what is true is always changing. Just as our Constitution has been rendered meaningless by making it a “living, breathing” pile of gobbledygook subjectiveness, this year's truth will inevitably go out of fashion by this time next year, and the same Democrats who claim to believe fervently in the woke dogma of the moment will in the future deride and mock anyone who could so ignorantly believe in what they themselves believed only yesterday.
It took fifteen years to go from Ellen coming out of the closet on national television to Obama “evolving” on redefining marriage. It's taken less than a decade since then for Joe Biden to declare the trans movement the “civil rights issue of our time” and only a year for Big Tech to outright censor Americans for being so brazen as to believe there are two — and only two — biological sexes, a fact widely known by most Democrats just a short time ago. Now, in record time, Democrats have thrown cautious “evolution” out the window and decided that straight men must be shamed for not wanting to date men posing as women. Forget bodily autonomy, religious belief, or morality. You will bake that cake — I mean, date that guy with the pink lipstick, stubbly chin, and Manolo Blahnik knockoffs — or prove that you're irredeemably filled with hate. Yikes! We've gone from “tolerant people should accept Ellen for who she is” to “only bigots unworthy of our respect think there's a problem with men dressed as women twerking in front of children at story hour.” That may not be “change we can believe in,” but it's the kind of earth-shattering stuff that ends up torching entire societies. That's the thing with “cultural revolutions,” though — a little kindling catches fire, and then the whole forest is ablaze before anyone knows what's happening.
First, viewpoints are attacked as illegitimate. Then books supporting those viewpoints are burned. Then the people who write those books (or read those books) join the bonfires themselves. So when Amazon banned scholar Ryan Anderson's book on transgenderism earlier this year, it wasn't just engaging in censorship. It was throwing a huge log onto the flames.
Dominican friar Girolamo Savonarola's “bonfire of the vanities” in Florence in the late fifteenth century should have provided ample warning to future generations that burning books always leads to burning bodies, but humanity never learns the lesson. Young indoctrinated students not too different from those today rushed to the Bebelplatz in Berlin in May of '33 to burn tens of thousands of books for the Nazi cause, and twelve years later, Berlin lay in ruins. When Mao's Cultural Revolution really took hold in '66, idealistic brainwashed students, again not so different from those today, became Red Guard marauders, going from house to house, burning books and anything else that reeked of one of the “four olds” — old ideas, old customs, old culture, and old habits. Sound familiar? Gotta rid America of all that nasty “white supremacy,” “systemic racism,” “patriarchy,” and “hate” — and “build back better”! Nobody wants to remember that Mao's version of “hope and change” killed off 65 million Chinese, condemned another 50 million to the gulag, and turned a generation of teenagers into a raging army of psychopaths who tortured their parents, neighbors, and teachers in the name of “progress” and killed over a million of their elders before the dust settled. Woohoo, now that's a “Great Leap Forward”! Or was it a “Great Lean Forward“? Eh, same difference.
It's just a little censorship, Google, Facebook, and Twitter say. So we put you in virtual time-out or purge your voice from the internet for “spreading hate” — what's the harm? It's just a little citizen designation, Attorney General Garland says. What could possibly go wrong with legally defining half of the American populace as “domestic violent extremists” because they voted for Donald Trump or as “white supremacists” because they have the wrong color skin? Conservatives are just too “touchy” these days. Nothing bad ever happens when a certain class of people are designated as enemies of the State for supporting the “wrong” ideas — nope, nothing to see here.
PETITION UPDATE (5/5/2021) - BREAKING: Facebook permanently removes LifeSiteNews’ page
Facebook has just permanently banned LifeSiteNews’ Facebook page. This apparently is not a temporary measure: It is gone for good.
"Much like when LifeSite was removed from YouTube, this comes with little surprise,” noted LifeSiteNews Marketing Director Rebekah Roberts.
"Facebook has been silencing any voice that goes against their beliefs and agenda," continued Roberts. "Our LifeSiteNews Facebook page has been removed simply because we have shared reports of doctors, nurses, expert researchers, and even the former Pfizer VP speaking out against the COVID shots. We’ve also been tagged for the numerous articles we have shared making the connection between the COVID shots, and really all vaccines, and aborted baby cell lines."
"This all comes down to another case of Big Tech silencing free speech on their platform," she added.
"At this time, I encourage those of you who are still on Facebook, Twitter, and other Big Tech platforms to continue sharing LifeSiteNews articles with your friends and family, please!” urged Roberts. “I also encourage you to follow us on these alternative platforms:"

Thank you for SIGNING and SHARING this petition, vital to our freedom of speech.
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!

Except, it never, ever ends with just censorship or labeling. What starts with burning words — whether on paper or in digital space — always ends with burning people. Those most eager to start the fires learn quickly that in order to truly eradicate ideas, they must go after their “root causes” — the people who have those ideas and write them down in the first place. Pretending there are thousands of genders out there seems a little too crazy to take seriously. But “politics is downstream from culture,” and when the “madness of crowds” takes over, blood is never too far behind.
