Chalkboard Lesson: Timeline — America’s Slide Toward a ‘Total-Control’ Government

On today’s show, Glenn continued this week’s chalkboard series on ‘antifa.’ Technically speaking, antifa stands for anti-fascist, but modern-day antifa members claim to be anti-government, anti-police, and anti-establishment, touting slogans like “Smash the system” and “By any means necessary.” In many ways, antifa groups in the US have borrowed their purpose from their European counterparts. But America’s governmental system was set up to be (and still is) different than the European model.

“The left and right, if you will, are actually anarchy and total control. That is the American system of left and right. This is the way we were set up. This isn’t the way that Europe is set up,” said Glenn, adding, “We have anarchy on one side, no government at all. What does that usually involve? The reason why people who say ‘smash the system’ are so dangerous is because it always ends in mob rule … you need enough government to be able to keep the mob at bay, to make sure there isn’t a strongman somewhere. But that’s all the government should do, protect your rights.”

Introducing a timeline, Glenn starts with the Articles of Confederation, our country’s ‘first constitution’ ratified in 1781. “We first had the Articles of Confederation but it was too close to anarchy,” explained Glenn. “It wasn’t strong enough to hold everything together. So we … in 1789 developed the Constitution and in 1791 we had the Bill of Rights.”

Social media slavery: The government has found a 'constitutional' way to sidestep 1A

Social media companies aren't held to constitutional standards because they're private companies. But they're also protected by the government because they're considered "platforms," not "publishers." Well, the government has figured this out and has seen the power of using social media to circumvent the First Amendment and silence conservative voices.
