Wait a minute…Did Jimmy just suggest that twitter does nothing about “child sex abuse”?!…

…Those assholes at twitter dream up the shittiest of shitty excuses, to ban MAPs from using the platform…and we aren’t even people sexually abusing children…and Jimmy honestly thinks that “child sex abuse” exists in the open on twitter?!…

…Jesus Christ!…They don’t even allow objective discussion on “child sex abuse”, without censoring and banning people who don’t follow the script.

Pull your head out of our ass, Jimmy!

That is one of the most asinine things I have ever heard you say…and I’ve heard you say way to many asinine things.

Ignoring that…this is otherwise a good video.

Leak: US Government Plans To Police ‘Disinformation’ – with Ken Klippenstein…

“This isn’t a Biden story. It’s not a Trump story either. This is a national security state story.”

This week Ken Klippenstein and Lee Fang at The Intercept broke a huge story: Leaked Documents Outline DHS’s Plans to Police Disinformation. Ken joins Useful Idiots to share how he uncovered the bombshell revelation, what it tells us about our powerful security state, and his predictions for the dark future of information censorship.

The story, which reveals collusion between tech companies and the US government, massive CIA incompetence, and Orwellian levels of surveillance, is not a partisan issue, Klippenstein argues. It’s an issue of national security.

And yet looking at the headlines from corporate media following The Intercept’s publishing, there was immediate political spin.

The Washington Post told its readers that only conservatives would “go after DHS counter-disinformation work,” which means good Democrats should celebrate speech censorship. Meanwhile, as Ken writes in his story, Republicans claim we’ve defeated disinformation by taking down Biden’s disinformation governance board, ignoring that the same DHS tactics happened under Trump.

“It’s crammed into this partisan framework,” he explains, “that doesn’t reflect the reality that when someone’s in power they tend not to care about free speech.”

And the scariest part, Ken tells us, “this is not formalized in statute. There’s no law saying ‘we’re going to create the disinformation team.’ They can do this administratively without sign off from Congress. And they probably have beyond what I’m able to report because I’m only able to get details that my sources have access to. We don’t know what else might exist.”

It’s a huge story that, as with most issues you see on Useful Idiots, is dangerously underreported. Subscribe to hear the full interview with Ken Klippenstein as he shares the government secrets we know about and what still remains covered up.

It’s all this, and more, on this week’s episode of Useful Idiots. Check it out.

Gov & Big Tech Colluded To Censor Dissent On Social Media – Leaked Documents Reveal…

“A recent story from Lee Fang and Ken Klippenstein in The Intercept reveals the details behind the Department of Homeland Security’s ongoing program working “with” social media companies and others in the tech industry to suppress what the government terms “misinformation, disinformation and malinformation.” But it’s not censorship because the government doesn’t literally tell private corporations what information to suppress, right?

Jimmy and Americans’ Comedian Kurt Metzger discuss whether it qualifies as fascism when the government and private industry work together to dictate what information is allowed to be disseminated.”

Your Democracy Was Stolen Long Before January 6…

“Chris Hedges is among the most incisive, trenchant analysts of the social, economic and political factors influencing the world for the past 30 years. And he’s here to tell you that the January 6th riots were not the great threat to American democracy they’re cracked up to be. American democracy has been steadily eroding since the Reagan administration, Hedges says, and if you think Donald Trump’s arrival on the political scene is what killed democracy you have not been paying attention.

Jimmy and his panel of Hedges and America’s comedian Kurt Metzger discuss the myriad ways Wall Street, Big Pharma, weapons manufacturers, Big Ag and other powerful sectors snatched away the reins of power from the American people decades ago.”

Thank you, Jimmy and Chris.

Pentagon’s Bot Army Banned From Facebook & Twitter!…

“For many years now the United States military has been developing and deploying an army of bots to spread disinformation, sow discord among perceived enemies and promote US foreign policy. The Pentagon has overdone it to such an extent that even traditionally compliant partners in US imperialism like Facebook and Twitter have banned the military’s bots from their platforms.

Jimmy and America’s comedian Kurt Metzger discuss the U.S.’s use of disinformation tactics traditionally associated with “bad actors” like Russia and China.”
