This week’s Axios story accusing conservatives of creating an "echo chamber" of right-wing social media companies, phones, cryptocurrencies, and publishing houses created a social echo chamber itself.
CNN's Brian Stelter widely shared the article, and the progressive Twitterverse decried the horror of outlets and companies that value freedom of expression.
This isn’t the first time Stelter has wrung his hands about the conservative echo chamber.
Last year, the CNN host voiced his "concern" about how people are "going more and more into their own echo chambers, more and more into their own bubbles, especially Trump voters."
In 2018, he said the same.
Here’s the news flash for Stelter: it’s not an echo chamber, it’s an ecosystem --- and this is just the beginning.
This new conservative ecosystem will encompass media, certainly, but it will also include so much more: alternative social media platforms, hosting, email service providers, security services, customer relations management systems, banking, investment services, health,car, auto, home — as well as every other kind of insurance.
It will include consumer goods as well: athletic wear, groceries, medical supplies, books, guns and ammunition — actually, never mind, we already have those — toys, and electronics.
But if the left wing pundits like Brian Stelter don’t like that the country is decoupling along party lines, they should buy a mirror.
It's the left that caused this. Not us.
The left demanded that companies trash conservative American values, fire conservative employees, and quit doing business with anyone who didn’t swear allegiance to the progressive agenda.
This small, but vocal, minority demanded that the majority of Americans go along with their virtue signaling, America hating, non-binary, socialist revolution.
Anyone who disagreed deserved damnation and whatever job-ending, censoring, digital gulag the mob could get away with.
The liberal media fantasized about, and then openly pushed for the day, when conservatives would be ostracized by society, outcast, and otherwise not welcome, not wanted, and unable to fend for ourselves.
Well, that day has arrived, with one very notable exception.
Conservative, mainstream Americans are showing they don’t need the left and their digital empires. Conservatives are more than able to fend for ourselves.
The elites on the east and west coast don’t know conservatives or libertarians or free-marketeers, because they don’t know the kind of people who actually built America.
They don’t understand the grit, determination, warrior spirit, and unwillingness to ever surrender that defines middle America.
They don’t know us because, in the real world, they wouldn’t survive.
They wouldn't last for a moment outside of their "safe-spaces" and Twitterverse where they reside. Reality isn’t easy, but it’s in fact where the average American chooses to live.
Out here, the living is good, a man or woman is judged on their hard work, not the pronouns they choose, and we can do whatever we please, and wholly do so absent the left's approval.
So, we’ll build an alternative economic ecosystem.
It will serve not just conservatives, but anyone who believes that people are meant to live free, without self-appointed fatuous overlords like Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg or Twitter's Jack Dorsey dictating to us.
The free market is like water.
Money and investment flow through the cracks and seek the places where opportunity resides. And there is massive opportunity in serving the majority of America that progressives despise.
Of course, Brian Stelter and his ilk will try to stop us.
I saw this first-hand when I became the interim CEO of Parler to defend free speech from tyrants like him. I’ve witnessed it for over a decade since my time as one of the founders of the Tea Party movement, when bureaucrats in fancy suits sicked the IRS on conservative groups nationwide.
They’ll try to destroy us, and they will continue to try because that’s what left-wing socialists do — they destroy. They don't build, nor do they even know how to build.
But the left miscalculated when they assumed the people wouldn’t fight back.
It's that miscalculation will be their downfall.
Throw at us whatever you may, and we will succeed. We are the successors to the Pilgrims, the Founders, the pioneers, and those who built America and the industries and institutions you go out of your way to attack and besmirch.
We come from immigrant stock or are immigrants — that applies to all of us.
We are hearty, aggressive, fearless, and ferocious.
We’ve battled, and defeated, much better and stronger opponents than liberal elitists.
And they would know this if they bothered to read a history book other than one endorsed by the "1619 Project."
The conservative ecosystem at its core is built on competence, truth, honesty, liberty, and freedom of speech. All the things the progressive left hates and despises. And in the end, these principles will prevail.
Everyday Americans are planning, and we are building.
In fact, we’re well on our way.
The decoupling is happening, and we are building — everything — on our own.
We don’t wish to do business with the left or listen to them or shop with them or dine with them. And we certainly don’t want to live in their crime-ridden, filth-drenched cities.
Don’t get this writer wrong.
If progressives see the truth, they see the value of freedom of speech, the marketplace of ideas, and the importance of personal liberty.
Here's a message to them — they’re free to join us.
Everyone is welcome to join us, even Brian Stelter — if he dares.
