Biden’s political persecution against conservatives ramps up to include flight bans and solitary confinement without hope of bail
Conservatives believed that life would get harder for them if Joe Biden managed to win the White House, and they were right.
But many likely did not think that the persecution would come so quickly and be so blatant, to include being placed on a federal ‘no-fly list’ and be thrown in solitary confinement without being offered bail.
America First podcaster Nick Fuentes makes a lot of people uncomfortable with his podcasts, and many Americans think he is a straight-up white supremacist. Rising to influence within the far-right community following the deadly 2018 Charlottesville, Va., incident where white nationalists clashed with far-left Marxist Antifa types, he has been disowned by many of the social media platforms and most ‘mainstream’ Republican and conservative figures.
So his speech makes people uncomfortable; he is still an American, though, and as such should be permitted to say whatever he wants under the protection of the First Amendment (and within the context of First Amendment law) — and without being persecuted for it.
But we don’t live in ‘that’ America anymore. We live in soft, post-constitutional tyranny that is becoming harder by the day.
Earlier this week, Fuentes took to Twitter to report that he has been placed on the no-fly list for some reason he’s not yet sure about.
“So I’m on my way to a press conference to discuss how I’ve been banned from nearly all social media and tech services, and then I find out that I can’t even get there because I’ve been put on a no-fly list. This is overt political persecution. America is not a free country,” he tweeted.
In response to a query from liberal writer and investigative reporter Glenn Greenwald to explain, Fuentes added: “Got notice in the mail from DHS in January that I was removed from TSA Precheck. Was unable to check into my flight online, tried to check in at the counter. After long call with the TSA, AA clerk relayed that I am not cleared to fly. Booked another flight on United, same thing.”
Greenwald suggested reading the ACLU’s assessment of how the government has employed the no-fly list — often against political opponents — since it was devised in legislation following the 9/11 attacks:
Picture this: You arrive at the airport, full of good spirits ahead of a work trip to visit to a client. You wait in line to check in for your flight, but when you reach the counter, you’re told you won’t be able to board. Suddenly you’re surrounded by security guards and hauled off for questioning, with everyone gawking at you. You learn that you’re banned from flying – INDEFINITELY – to, from, or over the United States, even though you’ve never been charged with a crime.
You’re not told why. And there’s very little you can do about it.
Fuentes isn’t the only right-leaning figure to be persecuted under the Biden regime; dozens of protesters arrested immediately following the Jan. 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol Building are still sitting in jail in Washington, D.C., many spending 23 hours a day in solitary confinement, which is traditionally only reserved for the worst, most dangerous offenders.
