Americans have opened their eyes to the real power brokers in the United States during the pandemic, according to Fox News host Ben Domenech — who urged his compatriots to reject those who wanted to control them.
Domenech, co-founder of online magazine The Federalist and husband of Meghan McCain, said Friday that the pandemic should serve as a wake-up call.
“The ruling class used the threat of disease to consolidate its power, and it has used lies, violent riots, re-education, corporate media propaganda and technical censorship to achieve this – but it’s a house that can’t stand because it’s built.” to nothing but threats and the kind of blatant hubris we’ve had to see to believe,” Domenech, 39, said.
Ben Domenech, 39, told his Fox News audience Friday night to be on the lookout for who the real power brokers in the United States are — big tech, the media and “wakeful” institutions like Harvard
He said real power did not lie with “our sloppy octogenarian government,” which he described as a distraction, but rather with big tech companies, the media and “awakened” institutions like Harvard.
He pointed out that facebook had decided on Friday to ban Donald Trump from their platform for two years, “after his praise for people involved in the violence at the Capitol on Jan. 6,” they said.
Domenech said, “The real threat to American freedom is in the halls of Harvard and the boardrooms of Google and the cells of The New York Times.
Our unelected rules are more dangerous to our freedoms than the chosen ones.
‘We’ll see it again today. Facebook is doing what the government couldn’t. Unilaterally closing to the vote of a former president of the United States.’
Facebook announced Friday that Donald Trump, seen on Jan. 6, would be banned from their platform for two years as a punishment, “after his praise of people involved in violence in the Capitol on Jan. 6.” Domenech said the social media platform showed they had even more power than a government agency
Domenech said politicians such as Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer and California Governor Gavin Newsom exemplified the changing power dynamics.
He said they loved being in the spotlight when they could put restrictions in place, but found their influence waned as lockdowns were lifted and normalcy resumed.
He said Newsom “tried to stay in power like a broken despot” and refused to lift California’s pandemic restrictions even as the rest of the country returns to normal.
Newsom was mocked by Domenech as a ‘broken despot’ trying to hold on to his pandemic powers
Harvard and The New York Times were described by Domenech as the real centers of power
He praised Florida Republican Governor Ron DeSantis, who declared Thursday that he “prefers freedom over faucism.”
Domenech said Google was one of the top power brokers in the United States
Domenech said, “I have urged you to wake up to what is going on in the land. It is happening right in front of us and it is disturbing and demands a response from all of us who recognize the need to restore self-government.”
He concluded: ‘Tackling it in small ways and confronting hypocrisy, and returning power to where it belongs – the people – is now our mission.
“All you have to do is get up, open your front door and look outside.
“If there’s a red-white-blue flag flying there, you owe the protection of God-given rights.
“It means you’re a citizen, not a subject.”
