Those of us who support President Trump are well aware that the media does not show its viewers, readers or listeners what is actually happening. Rather they show them a narrative which furthers the agenda of that media outlet. Here at Illicit Info we are up front about trying to persuade our readers to see the world as we see it. In our minds, this is what makes us different than CNN, MSNBC, or, up until recently, Fox News.
While these media outlets tell you they are ‘fair and balanced’ or unbiased, we all know that is not the case, they all have a slant. At II, on the other hand, we are conservatives and libertarians, who want to see more individual liberty, more local control over politics (less globalism) and less governmental control over all.
One thing we really do not like is censorship. Perhaps the only thing worse than censorship itself, is the use of violence to stop people from speaking. We have seen this play out over and over again with radical leftist groups, dressed in all black, attacking people, preventing them from (or intimidating them from) speaking. All because their political aims are different then theirs.
When we tell our Democrats friends about our concerns with this behavior, they laugh at us and call us ‘conspiracy theorists’ because the media outlets they chose to consume refuse to show these events. Now, even Fox News is calling out the media is their failure to adequately cover the violence that innocent Trump supporters faced after the MAGA Million March in DC.
Fox News reported: ‘Conservatives criticized members of the media for failing to cover violence against President Trump’s supporters at the so-called Million MAGA March in Washington, D.C., on Saturday.
“I want to hear Joe Biden and Kamala Harris condemn Antifa/BLM criminals who assaulted and harassed peaceful demonstrators in DC today, including elderly and families,” political strategist Doug Stafford wrote on Twitter on Saturday. “Of course they won’t. And ‘media’ won’t make them.”
Of course they won’t. And “media” won’t make them.

“Watching video of people being assaulted and mobbed by BLM/Antifa in DC tonight brings back awful memories. Want an example of media bias? When Rand Paul and I spoke out about our mob assault, the AP reported our claim was ‘without evidence’ despite 10 minutes of video,” Paul’s wife Kelley Ashby Paul wrote on Twitter.

The Pauls were surrounded by what the senator described as a “crazed mob” after the Republican National Convention in August.’
If you are on Twitter and follow journalist and TheMillennialPost.com editor, Andy Ngo, you likely saw some of the horrific acts of violence aimed at conservatives, strictly for their support for President Trump. I would embed them in this article, but I do not want to give any opportunity for the censors to take us down any further than they already have.
Even Congressman Lee Zeldin commented on the telling lack of coverage:
The President’s supporters have a right to peacefully rally supporting POTUS just like his opponents have that same right. The physical assaults today by violent leftists targeting his supporters is abhorrent. The near total media blackout of the violence is terrible…& telling.

If you think the censorship and persecution of Trump supporters and conservatives was bad while Trump was in office, just wait until they wear Biden in. It is going to be open season on conservative voices. We expect to see mass deplatforing and not just from social media, but from banking institutions and any sort of tech service that can be used as a weapon.
We all know about the Twitter, Facebook and Youtube bans, but have you heard about the people banned from AirBnB, PayPal, Uber, Uber Eats, etc? I fear that all too soon you will be all too familiar with these atrocities. Let’s pray for a peaceful solution and that the left comes back to the light and lives up to their former title of ‘liberal’ (a proponent of liberty) and move away from this ‘progressive’ authoritarianism. All we ask for are everyone’s God given rights are respected, equally.
