Censorship in my humble opinion, is the biggest threat to the USA. Censorship and the cancel culture are a dangerous and slippery slope to our way of life.

Today it's "only" Trump and his conservative supporters, but what will be next? Christians? Jews? Muslims? Blue eyes or brown? Rural or city dwellers? You may scoff, but censorship is a ravenous beast, needing more and more to consume!

Will it stop down the street with your neighbors? What will happen when it comes for you? Who will be here to defend you? We have created this monster and have no way to stop it. I am a Christian, and I know who holds my future and where it will be, but I am still concerned enough to write this letter, hoping someone way smarter than me, will find a way to solve this extremely dangerous direction that our country is heading.

Thank You.

You say “we “caused this. No, TRUMP himself got the ball rolling with the term “ fake news “!!! This started the “idea “that everything on ALL News programs are fake. In reality, there are certain well-known propaganda, “news sites “that other total BS 24 seven!!! Among other things, this just proves the unsuccessful nature of our educational system over the decades. We now have people who can’t even agree that the sun rises in the morning anymore.Critical thinking seems to be nonexistent anymore. It seems to me that it’s OK for people to walk around ignorant, stupid, and narrow minded. Otherwise, most of this miss guided information wouldn’t be happening.

"Trump's fault!" is the best demonstration of critical thinking I've ever seen


The “real truth” that was exposed by Trump administration...... The number of absolutely(by definition of dictionary) IGNORANT,STUPID,LOW INFORMATION citizens that actually exist in the USA!!!It’s really sad
