Glenn Beck Alarmed

(StraightShooterNews.com) – Sounding the alarm on an aggressive leftwing scheme to silence conservative points of view, Glenn Beck is raising concerns over a recent initiative aimed at further restricting discussions on climate change.

Beck is the mind behind BlazeTV and is worried about a campaign launched against his platform by the Center for Countering Digital Hate (CCDH), which is a British organization that has previously collaborated with the White House.

The CCDH is urging major technology firms in the United States to clamp down on what it terms as “New Denial” of climate change.

This involves challenging skepticism towards leftwing perspectives on climate change effects, criticism of proposed conservative climate initiatives and calling for trust in climate science and activism, as reported by The Independent.

Google and YouTube have already imposed restrictions on what they classify as “old denial,” which denies the occurrence of global warming and disputes the role of fossil fuels in climate change.

The CCDH’s plea to Big Tech involves updating policies to address evolving climate change denial narratives, eliminating financial benefits for such content and limiting its spread and visibility.

In a recent video Beck questioned the reasons behind equating skepticism of the global elite with “global hate” by referencing comments by CCDH Chief Executive Imran Ahmed and the organization’s close ties with the White House. Beck highlighted the government’s history of dictating social media censorship, as revealed in the Twitter Files.

The CCDH has been influential in shaping digital policy notably through its “disinformation dozen” report, which focused on alleged COVID misinformation spreaders.

This report is believed to have influenced the Biden administration’s pressure on Big Tech to enact censorship, as disclosed by House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan (R-OH) regarding Facebook’s policy shifts under pressure from the Biden administration’s Surgeon General.

Beck argued that CCDH’s efforts to limit monetization of content that challenges the global elite’s narrative equate to indirect censorship given the financial demands of content creation. He advocated for a subscription model as a more viable option despite the high costs and the necessity of advertiser support.
