‘We Can’t Let It Happen’: Trump Warns Inner Circle Of Free Speech Erosion In New Documentary | Eastern North Carolina Now

    Former President Donald Trump issued a dire warning about free speech in America during a rare glimpse of Trump's inner circle caught on camera.

    "My Dinner with Trump," a new Daily Wire+ documentary featuring footage shot at Trump's Bedminster, N.J., golf club, captures the former president talking with key advisers at a crucial time in his post-presidency. During one part of the exclusive dinner, Trump derides the legacy media, blaming them for the erosion of free speech.

    "Ben, there's never been a period of time like this. The country is going bad," the former president said to his Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson. "You have the media is shut, closed, not free, corrupt as can be, and probably scared. You cannot get the word out unless you're really good, and we're pretty good, and we're getting the word out."

    Trump added that in all of American history, the media has never been so corrupt, and it's evidence of something far more dangerous. Carson jumped in, arguing that many Americans don't realize how free speech can be taken away even without government intrusion. Carson's warning seems prescient given fresh reports on how the FBI and other federal agencies worked hand-in-glove with Facebook and Twitter to censor conservatives under the guise of fighting "disinformation."

    "I don't think people actually recognize what's happening because we talk about liberties and freedom of speech. They think that that can only be taken away by the federal government," Carson responded. "But the fact of the matter is Big Tech and the media take it away with a complicit government is exactly the same effect. And that's what we have to make sure people understand."

    The extraordinary gathering took place in mid-2021, after Trump had been deplatformed by social media giants, continued to face unrelenting scorn from the legacy media, and battled accusations from top Democrats that he sparked the January 6 Capitol riot. The massive effort to silence and marginalize the 45th president makes the film's insight into his mindset all the more compelling.

    "If you do something spectacular, they don't talk about it. If you do something not so good, they'll make it into a travesty. If the other side does something bad, really bad, you will never see it," Trump added. "You will never find it ... they erase it, they cancel it. And there's never been a period of time like that in our country's history. There's never been. And that's the way communism starts. And that's where communism goes. And we can't let it happen. We're not going to let it happen."

The Democrat leadership has made constant, profound and incredible pronouncements that one's supportive vote for Republicans is tantamount to surrendering Democracy forever. Understanding their sincere thinking in their extreme position: How will you still vote on this election day?
  Democrat; because the continuance of this Democracy from the existential threat of extreme Republicans is paramount.
  Republican; the process of having a choice is the democratic method within what so called "Democracy" does exists.
  For the best candidate; and to be clear: This Constitutional Republic /this Representative Republic is not a Democracy, and never has been.

Where do you stand on the wanton censorship by Big Tech Platforms, while retaining their Section 230 carveout indemnifying them for Slander /Defamation lawsuits and Copyright infringements?
  Big Tech Platforms have the right to Censor all speech providing they voluntarily relinquish their Section 230 Carveout.
  Big Tech Platforms DO NOT have the right to Censor any speech, while retaining multiple indemnifications by virtue of the Section 230 Carveout.
  I know nothing of this 230 talk, but "I do love me some social media".

Since only about 20% of the News Media has any shred of Journalistic Integrity remaining: How does our Constitutional Republic continue without a "Free Press"?
  Demand real information, using real sources, backed up by facts.
  Promote real journalist entities only, and admonish those that prostitute their profession.
  We Democratic Socialists are doing just fine, thank-you, by promoting lies while having very little real knowledge about so much.

Considering what is being reported as the most divisive presidential speech - September 1, 2022 - in modern American history, where over 74,000,000 people, many of whom are OUR greatest patriots, were named as fascists by inference or otherwise: Is Joe Biden clearly capable of governing all of the American People to the betterment of this Representative Republic?
  Yes, it is important that Haters are named.
  No, Joe Biden cannot accept criticism when the real truth is his cruelest taskmaster.
  I have no idea what is going on because I only consume Democratic Socialist Media.

It has been far too many years since the Woke theology interlaced its canons within the fabric of the Indoctrination Realm, so it is nigh time to ask: Does this Representative Republic continue, as a functioning society of a self-governed people, by contending with the unusual, self absorbed dictates of the Woke, and their vast array of Victimhood scenarios?
  Yes, the Religion of Woke must continue; there are so many groups of underprivileged, underserved, a direct result of unrelenting Inequity; they deserve everything.
  No; the Woke fools must be toppled from their self-anointed pedestal; a functioning society of a good Constitutional people cannot withstand this level of "existential" favoritism as it exists now.
  I just observe; with this thoughtful observation: What will happen "when the Vikings are breeching our walls;" how do the Woke react?
