If you’re curious as to just how rattled the left really is about Donald Trump winning the presidency, you need look no further than their attempt to silence new media outlets as a means of forcing folks to get information from the mainstream media.
Google has come out against what they call “fake news” websites, stating any site labeled as such will no longer be allowed to use their ad network — AdSense — as a means of making money off of advertisements.
Look at the much-publicized list of “fake” news sites, and you’ll notice a disproportionate share of legitimate conservative websites. To little surprise, it’s a far-left professor behind the list.
In response, Ron Paul has his own take on who the real “fake” sites are. As Conservative Outfitters reported:
This list contains the culprits who told us that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction and lied us into multiple bogus wars. These are the news sources that told us “if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor.” They told us that Hillary Clinton had a 98% of winning the election. They tell us in a never-ending loop that “The economy is in great shape!”
If anyone is guilty of putting fake news and straight out misinformation out there, it’s them. They’re the ones who pushed the narrative from day one that Donald Trump would never be even the Republican nominee, let alone the President.
And they were wrong every step of the way. Judging by how shocked they were when Trump won, it became evident that even they bought their own nonsense. It’s hilarious that now they’re panicking about what they think the consequences of a Trump Presidency will be. Are we really supposed to believe that the same people who got everything wrong about this election are suddenly going to be right about what the consequences of it are? Yeah, I didn’t think so either….
