The Left has almost completely taken over America’s cultural institutions.
From Hollywood to Academia, to Big Tech conglomerates, Leftist ideology runs unchecked.
But one Republican Governor is showing how conservatives can fight back.
It’s no secret that virtually every major cultural institution in the United States has come to be dominated by the Left, and in some cases, the far-Left.
From Hollywood to Academia, and from Big Tech and the Media to the Arts, the driving cultural institutions that make up the most powerful non-governmental institutions have been almost entirely run by leftist ideologues, and have been for quite some time.
In schools and universities across the country, Critical Race Theory is now taught to students, dividing the country into classes based on skin color and teaching the next generation of Americans that racism is “inherently” in this country’s “DNA.”
The Media, which Republican politicians and political activists have known for decades held an adversarial view of conservatives in even the best of times, has completely abandoned all pretenses of reporting.
Instead, most “journalists” today favor openly engaging in the culture wars rather than reporting on it. Leftists and Democratic candidates are no longer treated with beneficial press, but are instead portrayed as heroes in a fight between good vs evil, with conservatives and Republicans all too often painted in the opposite light.
And in Silicon Valley, major tech conglomerates manipulate newsfeeds, algorithms, and platforms, to deny opposing viewpoints and silence their critics, often serving as a “fourth branch” of government in the process, while being free of the constitutional constraints placed on government itself.
The end result often has conservatives across the nation feeling like strangers in their own country, isolated and alone, with little but propaganda and condemnation directed at them from all corners.
But finally, one Republican governor is working to push back against the Left’s complete takeover of America’s cultural institutions.
“A Republican leader has decided to take on Big Tech. It’s high time. While other Republican legislators complain and pontificate about Twitter, Facebook and Google’s interference in our elections and censoring of conservative voices, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis has declared war on the tech giants,” writes Liz Peek in an op-ed with The Hill.
Peek is a conservative who once worked in a major Wall Street firm and knows first-hand how complete the Left’s takeover of America’s cultural institutions has become over the past 20 years.
The “war” she’s referring to is Gov. DeSantis’ proposal to the Florida state legislature to levee massive fines – up to $100,000 per day – on Big Tech companies that de-platform or delete the pages of political candidates running for office in Florida.
The most prominent example of this would be candidates like Donald Trump, who found himself outright banned from both Facebook and Twitter in the waning days of his Presidency.
“Until now, Republican legislators looked incapable of mounting any serious response to this offensive behavior. Holding committee hearings in Congress allows for plenty of sniping but not much more. Maybe Ron DeSantis has discovered the way forward. Some think the Florida governor might run for president in 2024; if so, tackling Big Tech will surely give him a boost,” concludes the op-ed.
DeSantis’ proposed legislation would be the first of its kind in the country should it pass the Republican-dominated Florida House of Representatives and Senate.
