Widespread censorship of experimental COVID-19 vaccines continues.
But this time, the censorship isn’t limited to public discourse on social media platforms.
They’re coming directly for your private conversations.
A Politico article notes that the Democratic National Committee wants to work with fact-checkers and SMS carriers to combat ‘vaccine misinformation.’
It’s a direct violation of the 4th Amendment for American citizens to be secure in their persons and houses.
And to protect against unreasonable searches and seizures.
Biden allies are willing to stomp all over the U.S. Constitution to ensure nobody criticizes the mainstream narrative.
By invading private conversations, the authoritarians intend to scare and intimidate those weary of vaccine side effects from speaking out.
It’s thought police and reminiscent of George Orwell’s 1984.
The irony of the Democrats who cried fascism during President Trump’s term is that we’re witnessing a government/corporate partnership form before our eyes.
The actual fascist state is rapidly unfolding during the Biden-Harris Regime.
Please tell me this is a typo:
“also planning to engage fact-checkers more aggressively and work with SMS carriers to dispel misinformation about vaccines that is sent over social media and text messages”

Guys, this is nuts: Biden and the DNC are planning to work with SMS carriers to "dispel misinformation about vaccines that is sent over social media and text messages." How can anyone be okay with this level of invasiveness? https://t.co/EeT2ls5cNV #BigBrotherIsWatching

Fauci took some of that messaging to Sunday cable news shows, including underscoring the idea that door-to-door vaccination efforts are an attempt to remove barriers to access and that 99.5 percent of deaths due to Covid are among people who are unvaccinated.
“Those data kind of hits you right between the eyes,” Fauci said of the fatalities.
Beyond Fauci, press secretary Jen Psaki has pushed back on Georgia Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene — a lawmaker she once said she’d not mention from the podium — who compared the administration’s vaccine campaign to Nazis. Jeff Zients, the White House’s Covid response director, rebuked Republican Missouri Gov. Mike Parson, who contended falsely in a tweet that government “agents” were going door-to-door to “compel vaccination.”
Biden allied groups, including the Democratic National Committee, are also planning to engage fact-checkers more aggressively and work with SMS carriers to dispel misinformation about vaccines that is sent over social media and text messages. The goal is to ensure that people who may have difficulty getting a vaccination because of issues like transportation see those barriers lessened or removed entirely.
“We are steadfastly committed to keeping politics out of the effort to get every American vaccinated so that we can save lives and help our economy further recover,” White House spokesperson Kevin Munoz said. “When we see deliberate efforts to spread misinformation, we view that as an impediment to the country’s public health and will not shy away from calling that out.”
The pushback is a change of tone and approach from earlier this year, when the White House often chose to ignore its most vocal conservative critics out of a desire not to elevate them. It is a tacit acknowledgment that the July 4 goal of 70 percent vaccination nationwide was overly optimistic, if not naive. And it underscores that two realities are setting in: It’s becoming more difficult to convince vaccine-skeptics to get their shots (of the 10 least vaccinated states, all were won by Donald Trump in 2020) and the anti-vaccine voices, already vocal in the country, are becoming more mainstreamed by Republicans eager to oppose Biden-led initiatives.
Indeed, over the past few weeks, criticism of the administration’s door-to-door vaccination strategy has increasingly become a fixture on Fox News, in addition to being a top topic on conservative social media posts and over SMS messages to cell phone users. It’s coming at a time when the highly contagious Delta variant is triggering a rise in hospitalizations and infections among those who have not been vaccinated. Those who are door knocking are individuals like pastors or grassroots organizers, not government bureaucrats. And they are not delivering vaccines, but spreading the word on where and how to get vaccinated, and why it’s important to do so. To the degree that people understand that, the White House reasons, it could have a positive impact on increasing vaccinations.
