In George Orwell’s classic book “1982,” Big Brother, another word for the Government, has the ability to monitor and track just about everyone. It also had the ability to swoop in and remove someone who might say or even write something against the government.
This book has long been something that anti-establishment and anti-government people have pointed to as where our current government is headed. With what President Obama just did, we as a country are one step closer to living out the events of Orwell’s novel.
In a Friday Night secret signing, President Obama signed into law something called the “Countering Foreign Propaganda and Disinformation Act.” Now, the term “Foreign Propaganda” is tossed in here to fight off foreign fake news. After all, according to the liberals, Russia hacked the Presidential Election (despite the fact that nobody anywhere has released any sort of proof behind this. It’s most likely that Democrats and the left leaning main stream media was caught supporting Hillary and needed to quickly counter the Trump win).
The bigger issue with this is the “Disinformation” aspect. Essentially, the government can shut down anything it states is “disinformation.” AKA, anything that does not align with what it states and thinks. There is nothing wrong with questioning authority in order to find out the truth. But now, it is potentially against the law.
Obama signed this new law right before Christmas so it would be swept under the rug. Find out more about exactly how this may ultimately destroy every American’s 1st Amendment Rights by watching the video.
