You Can’t Watch This follows the lives of five high profile conservatives and political dissidents banished from the online world. After introducing each character, the movie recounts how each person came to lose their access to social media and the affect it had on them. With their stories told, each person goes on to discuss the broader issues raised by their deplatforming. Gavin McInnes talks about the necessity for social media for journalists, Laura Loomer describes how there is a war for information – and for access to it.

That’s what this documentary explores in great detail, it’s a documentary that needed to be made, and yet it will be immediately denounced. It’s really very troubling. We are losing our right to free speech at a rapid pace, soon to approach the end of the one way tunnel.

Think carefully because Before you know It, you’ll be cencored for something you said that offends someone else, even if you think it’s rediculous. If we want someone banned because we don’t agree with what they say, we are strangling free speech, is thay really what we want? To have a corporate body censoring us? Censoring whatever THEY see unfit for discussion?
We can make up our own minds. Intelligent people can ussualy seperate fact from lies. What we can’t and should never accept, is being told it’s too offensive or too upsetting to mention or even to talk about.
I may not agree with what you say, but I will defend to the death, your right to say it. It’s terrifying that others in our so called democracy want to limit something as important as freedom of expression and freedom of speech.. next will be freedom of thought. You don’t need to read 1984 to know this.. though it won’t hurt.
Call it what it is, it’s facism.
