For the first seven years of my life, I grew up in a totalitarian state where people were bullied into compliance and kept silent about the brutalities of the government out of fear of being targeted next. Born in 1974, the same year Haile Selassie was deposed by Marxists thugs, I saw first hand the horrors that were purveyed by the ruling class as Menginstu Hailemariam and the Derg junta rose to power using the pains of the marginalized only to commit a genocide against 500,000 Ethiopians. As always, revolutions are birthed by idealists and aborted by malicious opportunists.
To this day, millions of Ethiopians carry traumas in their hearts from the terrors they experienced for nearly two decades of brutal despotism. As appalling as the deaths of a half million men, women and children were, the anxieties and pervasive sense of anxiety that were perpetuated by the ruling class was equally disquieting for those who survived. It would take volumes of books to detail the barbarities of a tin pot dictator who leveraged the public good and manufactured crises to foment strife and enforce his heinous agendas through a mix of disinformation, persecutions and censoring dissent.
You have to understand my concern of what is taking place in my new home America and the world writ large through this lens; those of us who endured tyranny understand that fascism does not arrive overnight. To the contrary, authoritarianism has a gestation period as the rights of the people are liquidated and fed to usurpers through the umbilical cord of public apathy and bureaucratic overreach. Like toads simmering in a pot of water, the establishment are slowly turning up the heat intent on broiling our freedoms away and eventually scalding us into submission.
It started with masks, social distancing and lockdowns last year in response to a pandemic that has mysterious origins. I, like hundreds of millions of Americans, adhered to these mandates out of dread over the Coronavirus that claimed my mom’s life on May 15th, 2020. Most of us trusted Anthony Fauci implicitly and did as we were told without questioning; we wanted to do our part to bend the curve of infections. To this end, I too once lampooned people who refused to wear masks as “right wing zealots” threatening our collective safety. Little did I realize that what sounded like reasonable guidance were but the opening salvoes of greater and truly outlandish impositions to come.

In hindsight, these acts of public acquiescence remind me of what happened in Ethiopia. To this day, I remember the nervousness my parents felt because I had a penchant of speaking out a bit too much when I was six years old—a habit that has remained with me 40 years later. Ethiopians were encouraged to turn in anyone who criticized the government and dared to question authority; millions followed these dictates as families, neighbors and strangers alike were reported to the law enforcers and shortly disappeared. Dissension was a death sentence to hundreds of thousands of Ethiopians, a crime that many in the diaspora need to repent for.
Though America has not morphed into the Ethiopia of my childhood, we surely are trending in that direction. A country that was founded on the premise of liberty by rebels who pushed back against the excesses of King George has turned into the very tyranny that the Revolution of 1776 was waged against. Though we are not yet at a place where tens of thousands of people are being disappeared into the night for the sin of asking questions and demanding their Constitutional freedoms, we are incrementally heading towards that path as politicians, media personalities and opinion leaders normalize forced “vaccinations” and suppressing the voices of those who don’t follow their edicts.
In the span of two months, I had my Twitter account that had close to 9,000 followers—which took me close to six years to attain—permanently suspended only for Facebook to follow suit and delete an account I’ve maintained since 2007. I started using my backup account shortly thereafter but that did not last long as the fascists at Menlo Park, California expunge that account two days ago. It was restored last night but it’s a matter of time before this account is nuked as well. My sins? Being a journalist who wrote about the perils of these experimental Covid-19 “vaccines” and demanding efficacy and long-term immunity before we jab billions of people with nostrums that could have untold and gruesome consequences.
I could see if what I wrote was demonstrably false and I was intentionally spreading misinformation, even then freedom of speech should be protected and the marketplace of ideas should be the ultimate arbiter of what is or is not acceptable to be consumed by the broader public. However, what I publish is ALWAYS backed by facts; I cite sources—most of the time I am using the CDC and biotech corporations’ own websites—and I research exhaustively before I speak on anything. In other words, I am being censored for acknowledging mainstream conventions but doing so in a way that does not toe their narratives.

While social media corporations are allowing firebrands on the “left” and the “right” to advocate violence and preach hate speech that would make George Wallace and Bill Ayers proud, those of us who promote unity and champion safety above the profits of biotech corporations are treated like lepers during the time of Jesus. It’s not just Facebook, Twitter and Google trafficking in these insidious practices of soft and hard-censorship; since I started writing about these Covid-19 “vaccines”, I’ve had my LinkedIn and Reddit accounts disabled. I’m not the only one, there are countless number of people who keep getting shadow-banned, suspended and deplatformed for expressing a thought that diverges from “acceptable behaviors”.There is a reason why I used emojis in the title of this article, it's my way of evading the algorithm based censorship that is being deployed by fascists who are hell-bent on spreading Va☠️☠️ine agenda.

Responding to my account of how Facebook censored my latest article about the big lies of the “vaccine” studies, my friend Brion Frantz brilliantly noted “you only get flack when you’re over the target“. Instantly his insight struck a chord, we are in an information war and those of us who fly too close to the truth are being bombarded with anti-aircraft guns intent on blowing us out of the sky lest we expose their disinformation campaign and lay waste to their demonic agendas they designed a long time ago.
What we are witnessing is the ugly legacy of 1930’s Germany. Everything from the weaponization of media, compelling people by way of ostracization and eventual legal mandates to get “vaccinated” and targeting those who object is straight out of the playbook of Hitler, Goebbels and Mengele. I don’t write these things for effect, after all Nazis did not immediately commit a holocaust, they started at the margins and chipped away at freedoms before they worked their way in and eventually burned Germany and most of Europe to the ground. Do you hear that? It’s the warnings of history knocking at our collective doors.
A lie needs billions of dollars for marketing budgets and countless resources to maintain but a truth just needs to be told; the establishment understand this which is why they have declared a total war on independent journalists and anyone who dares to ask why. No matter how much they try to muzzle us or how much they try to bury facts with distortions, in time all everything they are trying to bury will rise to the top. I will wrap this up with a quote that gives me comfort during times of global tribulation, “for nothing is secret, that shall not be made manifest; neither any thing hid, that shall not be known and come abroad”.
“Freedom is the freedom to say that two plus two make four. If that is granted, all else follows.” ~ George Orwell
