If you had trouble making sense of all that, so did I. The only clear point was that Olbermann wants those who disagree with him to be shut down. Seeking the forced suppression of your opponents is a tell-tale sign you have become the problem. Olbermann has always been a wacky man who is fueled by rage. But without a proper platform of his own, he appears to have grown a little stir-crazy. He’s now advocating for fascism on a platform that has, for the most part, finally stopped shutting down vocal opposition to the government. Olbermann was predictably shredded on Twitter by many people who came across his desperate tweet. Many suggested the formerly relevant left-wing character get help. Here’s a small sampling of that:
“It is time to de-platform and close down FoxNews as a threat to national security.“@SpeakerMcCarthy has given @TuckerCarlson 41,000 hours of 1/6 Video so he can gaslight the coup AND next time provide a roadmap past detection.” TUESDAY’S COUNTDOWN: https://t.co/7RV6lkP3mL pic.twitter.com/fo1SkAdfdy — Keith Olbermann (@KeithOlbermann) February 21, 2023

Sadly, Olbermann’s unhinged opinions are shared by many Americans on the left who, like him, no longer want a discussion. These are people whose only hope in seeding their ideas requires silencing voices of opposition. It is worth noting that few advocated for Olbermann to lose his voice last week when he called on blue states to wage an “economic civil war” with the intention to “starve the red states” into “submission.”

Why shut down anyone whose ideas are so repugnant they are certain to repulse rational people on their own? In our society, people decide who they find worth listening to and who they do not. There is a reason Fox News is ranked number one in what it does. It is the same reason Olbermann has resorted to using a platform owned by Elon Musk to beg for a podcast audience. This article appeared originally on The Western Journal.
“WE MUST HAVE ECONOMIC CIVIL WAR.“There is only one way to stop Mass Shootings. The Blue States must financially starve the Red States, the Gun Lobby, the GOP, the Death Lobby, and the crooked judiciary into submission. “NOW.” WEDNESDAY COUNTDOWN: https://t.co/OY1H1fxw8G pic.twitter.com/0wILxJIXu0 — Keith Olbermann (@KeithOlbermann) February 15, 2023
