Recently Kevin Price, Host of the nationally syndicated Price of Business Show, interviewed John D. O’Connor.
The FBI’s intervention in quashing the Hunter Biden laptop story in 2020 as ramifications that extend far beyond this story. Traditional American values exalt not only free speech, but also and more importantly, open and even heated debate. But Progressives, whose ideological leanings veer toward speech cancellation and control over acceptable thought, advocate in the opposite direction, contrary to American tradition, using the charge of “conspiracy theory”, shadow banning, de-platforming and “denialism” to prevent debate over traditional ideas deemed “conservative” or “right-wing”. However worrisome this Progressive project is, really advocating for an exclusive ideology, it can be staunchly defended as exercise of freedom of speech. But with the emerging news of the FBI’s initiative, the story is turned on its head. We now have a government agency stifling free speech, a violation of the First Amendment. And we have unelected officials on their own deciding to interfere, falsely, in an election, against the presumed wishes of their Commander in Chief in charge of national security matters, which the FBI claimed this was. Nothing could be a more frightening assault on our American society’s freedoms.
