Obama Doubles Down On Censorship: Calls It ‘Demand For Crazy’

Barack Obama

(TheLastPatriotNews.com) – So much for former presidents staying out of politics once they leave office as was always the tradition in the United States of America.

Former President Barack Obama was back at the White House this past week. And, it is evident he does not intend to remain on the sideline as the country turns to the 2022 congressional midterm elections and the 2024 presidential election.

What does Obama want beyond handpicking Democrats he approves of? He wants even more censorship in American politics and elections.

As Breitbart points out in “Barack Obama Backs Internet Controls to Grapple with the ‘Demand for Crazy'”:

Government regulation and control over the internet can defeat a “demand for crazy” through the spread of incorrect messages, former President Barack Obama said Wednesday…

“‘I do think that there is a demand for crazy on the internet that we have to grapple with,” Obama said, before adding a mix of regulation and industry standards are needed to address the issue.

“Obama lamented how misinformation plays out across the U.S., accusing those who say President Joe Biden did not win the 2020 election as guilty of falling for conspiracy theories.” [emphasis added]

But Obama was far from done:

“‘Roughly 40 percent of the country appears convinced that the current president was elected fraudulently and that the election was rigged‘ he claimed, with about 30-35 percent rejecting vaccines for coronavirus which he called a ‘medical miracle’ that had been clinically tested by a billion people.” [emphasis added]

Bottom line: Barack Obama wants more regulation — censorship — of what Americans see on social media platforms. This could very well be why Elon Musk has bought his way onto the board of Twitter. Musk wants to stop precisely what Obama is trying to do with more silencing of views he doesn’t condone.
