A new Cato Institute survey found that 77% of right-wingers are afraid to give their political opinions compared to 6 in 10 leftists, who said they feel free to say whatever they want.
Overall, 62% of Americans do not express their views or values due to fear of punishment and retaliation.
Republican voters with college degrees cited the threat of job termination as the mechanism for censorship. 60% of post-graduates with right-leaning beliefs state that they will be made unemployed if they were ever to be found out.
Elite commentators will often defend repression in America by pointing out that the tyranny and political control is often exercised by powerful private entities using private means. A recent poll by Rasmussen reveals that nobody is falling for this semantic game. Only 26% of Americans believe we have true freedom of speech.
Big business in the past would contract private Pinkerton agents to massacre striking workers, while the Sackler family has deliberately murdered untold thousands with its opiates and will get away with it. Privatized tyranny and terror is still tyranny and terror. The Jewish NGOs, mainstream media and corporations crushing dissent in America are as totalitarian as any state that has ever been accused of the same.
On top of this, the state plays an important role as a subject of plutocracy. Stories of police investigating and charging white people for First Amendment protected speech minorities find distasteful are increasingly common and no civil liberties organization has protested. The conservative majority Supreme Court found that people must be forced to use a transsexuals made up pronouns in public spaces or risk violating the 1964 Civil Rights Act.
The main triggers for repression in the liberal West are questions of Jewish power, white nationalism, the Holocaust, racial differences, paraphiliac sexuality, immigration and Israel.
Conservatives who claim to be outraged by "cancel culture" by and large agree with the left that "politically incorrect" opinions on the above topics should be censored, making their defense of the First Amendment little more than a fraud. The Jew Zack Beauchamp, in defense of censoring his political opponents, correctly points out that conservatives making noise about cancel culture will never speak up in defense of historians put in prison under Germany's "Holocaust denial" laws.
Even more ridiculous are some of the figures looking to defuse growing popular anger at Jewish organizations that have eroded the First Amendment, like the Anti-Defamation League, which is behind tech censorship.
Bari Weiss, a Zionist who put on a show and quit the New York Times in an attempt to carve out controlled opposition for conservatives, is a member of the ADL and even was a keynote speaker at their conference last year. Another member of the Jewish controlled opposition, Yascha Mounk, whose screed The People Vs Democracy is an attack on the very idea of majority rule, is also engaging in tepid, fake protests.
On the Harper's Letter on Justice and Open Debate, Beauchamp points out that the hypocrites decrying attacks on free speech did not ask actual victims of censorship like Richard Spencer or any other "racist" to sign.
Jewry feels the need to take emergency measures in order to shut down what they see as a very real Fascist or National Socialist white existential threat. For conservatives, this is a problem, since it makes dogwhistles and symbolic plays to the white majority -- their bread and butter -- almost impossible. It is now against America's unwritten constitution for a center-right figure to articulate anything approaching the truths the public witnesses with its own eyes on a day to day basis.
At this point, the phony right -- entirely to blame for the erasure of free expression -- is reduced to begging for exceptions to be made for them so that real Fascists and Nazis are not handed the monopoly on reason and facts.
