The “wrongthink” that George Orwell warned us about is here, and it is changing the very nature of American society.
In 1984, Orwell pontificated on the idea that, at some point in the future, we would be ruled by a technocratic overlord who would watch our every move, and attempt to persuade and dissuade us to their liking.
Now, in the dawning decades of the 21st century, we have reached just such a nightmare, as digitally dominating corporations choose what we learn, and who from.
The latest instance of Big Brother come to life occurred on Twitter this week, after an advocate for immigration reform was suspended for her beliefs.
Angel Mom Mary Ann Mendoza, who heads the Angel Familiesorganization, has been suspended from Twitter after posting about illegal immigration and raising awareness about the harms of sanctuary city policies.
Angel Mom Mendoza’s son, 32-year-old police officer Brandon Mendoza, was killed in May 2014 by a drunk illegal alien who was driving the wrong way down a highway in Mesa, Arizona.
This week, Mendoza was suspended from her Twitter account and told she would not be able to sign back in unless she deletes a series of posts about crimes committed by illegal aliens and the impact of sanctuary city policies on American citizens.
Mendoza’s tweets aimed at lawmakers are likely the reason for her suspension, but the Angel Mom refuses to be silenced.
“I’m disgusted and disappointed that Twitter is trying to silence me,” Mendoza told Breitbart News. “I had my world ripped out from under me the day my son was killed by a repeat illegal alien criminal. I am the ‘other’ side of this crisis and the end result of open borders and the careless release of illegal aliens at our borders because of time restraints.”
And while not everyone will agree with Mendoza’s beliefs, or the language that she uses to express those beliefs, her right to free speech is not to be revoked by anyone.
