Editor's note: LifeSiteNews has uploaded the video of Tucker Carlson's monologue to our Rumble channel (here) and has embedded it in the following story.
January 12, 2021 (American Thinker) — On his Monday Fox News program, Tucker Carlson spelled out what America's corporate overlords are doing in America. Essentially, they are “de-personing” anyone who dares to question what happened in America on November 3–8 or who even supports Trump. In a world run on computers, they are unplugging everyone who does not toe their party line.
I will not link to the video on YouTube because that site is one of the major tech monopolists silencing all who dissent from their political beliefs. I also can't embed Fox videos here. However, you can see Tucker's entire monologue here.
The usually ebullient Tucker is manifestly upset, even angry at what's happening in America. As we all must now, to protect ourselves, he opens by stating that his show immediately and repeatedly denounced the violence at the Capitol (true) because his show is completely opposed to political violence and supports law and order.
He then castigated the new selective enforcement of laws, which means they're not laws or justice at all. They are merely tyrannical whims. What's happening now is collective punishment, attacking Americans who had nothing to do with events at the Capitol.
One after another, Tucker details the corporate attacks on people who dared attend or listen to the Trump rally — people who had nothing to do with what happened at the Capitol. (We here at American Thinker also condemn strongly the small number of people who engaged in violent and manifestly illegal activity. We believe absolutely in the Constitution and the rule of law. That doesn't mean that we don't believe that there were Antifa and other provocateurs in D.C. intentionally inflaming people and inducing them to act illegally.)
Back to Tucker…
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!

PayPal suspended the account of a group that paid for Trump-supporters to travel to Washington. Rocker Ariel Pink's record label dropped him for attending the rally. A flight attendants' union has demanded that all “insurrectionists” no longer be allowed to travel commercially anywhere in the United States.
And what's an “insurrectionist”? According to a letter from congressional Democrats, “it is anyone who sympathizes with what happened on Wednesday.”
Everyone should be afraid of this definition and its consequences. People should push back, but corporate America is piling on, instead. People who control our money, health, and ability to travel are nailing anyone who questions the election.
Democrats are now trying to eject all congresspeople who asked to have an audit of the election. Tucker points out that, beginning in 2000, Democrats routinely objected to Electoral College certifications, except that it wasn't “insurrection” then. These same corporate oligarchs (yes, oligarchs, just as in Russia) are also making it impossible to donate money to the Republican politicians who did what their Democrat peers did in past years. It's a new standard that cuts only one way.
The new ruling class also wants to destroy people's livelihoods. A Forbes editor announced that any company that hires someone from the Trump administration will pre-emptively be assumed to be corrupt. Joe McCarthy could only have dreamed of this level of guilt by association.
Tucker notes that the irony of a Biden administration is that Americans were encouraged to vote for him because they'd get normalcy. Theoretically, that would include normalcy from the unending hysteria and violence leftists brought to the Trump administration. Democrats were daily encouraging Americans to attack Trump and his supporters — and one man took that invitation up and tried to assassinate a huge group of Republican congresspeople, almost killing Steve Scalise.
Back then, corporations said nothing and did nothing about violence. Instead, they fell over themselves funding Black Lives Matter organizations — and cheerfully funded bailing out violent BLM protesters. (Kamala Harris approved, as she approves of censoring opposing political ideas.) Something big and bad is happening in America, as overwhelmingly powerful corporations, who aren't answerable to anybody and who have the government in their pockets, go on a rampage against half of America.
Biden added fuel by comparing Sens. Cruz and Hawley to Goebbels. Pelosi is also urging disunity, explicitly race-baiting. And here's the important point: they have to do this because they built their party on a foundation by dividing Americans into inherently oppositional special interest groups. The only way to keep those groups together is to make sure they still hate you.
There's more, but I'm out of space — and you really need to watch the whole thing here.
