Americans have had their eyes opened during the pandemic to the real power brokers in the United States, according to Fox News host Ben Domenech – who urged his countrymen to reject those seeking to control them.
Domenech, co-founder of The Federalist online magazine and husband of Meghan McCain, said on 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 tech censorship to achieve this.
‘But it is a house that cannot stand because it is built on nothing but threats and the kind of shameless hubris we’ve had to see to believe,’ said Domenech, 39.
Ben Domenech, 39, told his Fox News audience on Friday night that they should be alert to who the real power brokers are in the United States – big tech, the media and ‘woke’ institutions like Harvard
He said that the true power lay not with ‘our feckless octogenarian government,’ which he described as a distraction, but rather with big tech companies, the media and ‘woke’ institutions like Harvard.
He pointed out that Facebook had decided on Friday to ban Donald Trump from their platform for two years, ‘following his praise for people engaged in violence at the Capitol on January 6,’ they said.
Domenech said: ‘The real threat to American liberty is in the halls of Harvard and the boardrooms of Google and the cubicles of The New York Times.
‘Our unelected rules are more dangerous to our freedoms than the elected.
‘We see it again today. Facebook doing what the government could not. Unilaterally shutting down for the voice of a former president of the United States.’
Facebook on Friday announced that Donald Trump, seen on January 6, would be banned from their platform for two years as punishment, ‘following his praise for people engaged in violence at the Capitol on January 6’. Domenech said that the social media platform showed they had even more power than a government agency
Domenech said that politicians such as Democrats Gretchen Whitmer, governor of Michigan, and California’s governor Gavin Newsom exemplified the shifting power dynamic.
He said they had loved being in the spotlight when they could usher in restrictions, but found their influence ebbing as the lockdowns were lifted and normality resumed.
He said that Newsom was trying to ‘cling to power like a broken despot’ and refuse to lift pandemic restrictions in California, even as the rest of the country is returning to normal.
Newsom was mocked by Domenech as a ‘broken despot’ trying to cling to his pandemic powers
Harvard and The New York Times were described by Domenech as the real power centers
He praised the Republican governor of Florida, Ron DeSantis, for declaring on Thursday that he ‘choose freedom over Fauciism.’
Domenech said Google was one of the main power brokers in the United States
Domenech said: ‘I’ve been exhorting you to wake up to what’s going on at the country. It’s happening right in front of us and it’s troubling and demands a response from all of us who recognize the need to restore self-government.’
He concluded: ‘Taking it on in small ways and confronting hypocrisy, and returning power back to where it belongs – the people – is our mission now.
‘All you have to do is stand up, open your front door and look out.
‘If there is a red, white and blue flag waving there, it owes you protection of God-given rights.
‘It means you are a citizen, not a subject.’
