I did something I said I’d never do, I posted something controversial to Facebook.
Last Thursday, I decided to post the Plandemic documentary snippet that’s been floating around the internet. Here’s my exact post:
This video has been shared many times in my feed and I am so happy that people are watching it. I went back and forth about posting it to my own wall for the last 24 hours since it came out.
I’m not one for conspiracy theories and I take everything with a grain of salt but I believe BOTH sides need to be heard and anytime someone is abruptly silenced, red flags need to be raised. This video keeps getting taken down my YouTube and Vimeo. Why is that? Do we still have freedom of speech? Why is censorship so rampant? Why aren’t we allowed to hear from the other side?
I have not spoken out about political issues in the past but I cannot stay silent on the sidelines. I’ve been researching for years. If you know me, I do my homework. This post does not come lightly.
Now is the time to ask questions. Come to your own conclusions but do your due diligence and do your own research, don’t just take anyone’s word for it. Especially those who have everything to gain. What’s their agenda? What’s their motivation?
Keep an open mind. That is all I ask.
NOTE: If you cannot see the video, as of today, it is still posted on @janny.organically’s IGTV.
Facebook has since removed the post due to increased censorship which is very much alive and real if you did not already believe it before. I didn’t even receive a notification and had to investigate myself to figure out what happened! I debated with myself about saying something more but I want to make it clear that I was not the one to delete it. I stand by my decision to post this controversial video and will further clarify my intentions due to some misunderstanding.
I will not tell you my stance on this issue with what’s happening in our world because it is my opinion and I feel like it’s inappropriate to make that public. However, I will tell you this, I don’t agree with everything said in the video. Shocking!
In my post, I wrote: “…I take everything with a grain of salt but I believe BOTH sides need to be heard…come to your own conclusions but do your due diligence and do your own research, don’t just take anyone’s word for it.”
I never said I agreed with the full video or stood by all of its claims. My point was that in order to make an informed decision, you have to hear out both sides of the story and then decide for yourself. I am a firm believer in getting as much of the information as possible and engaging in discussions with people or reading articles with opposing views. Why is that? Because I believe everyone deserves a chance to be heard. This doesn’t mean my opinion always changes but sometimes it opens up new doors and allows a new perspective to shed some light on things I may not have thought about before.
THAT was my point in the post. Anytime someone is abruptly shut down, red flags need to be raised in America. We have the freedom of speech. We should welcome discussions and healthy debates. I understand this is a deeply polarizing issue and we are in the middle of completely unprecedented times so maybe my Facebook friends weren’t ready for post like this but I will always stand for freedom and for our rights as American citizens.
Many of my Facebook friends either publicly or privately reached out sending me videos or articles rebutting the video. Thank you for taking the time to do some digging but I urge you to continue to have the same fervency with everything you hear, not just controversial viral videos. News articles that you read, public figures that are making statements, are we digging into them as much as we’re digging into this video?
I hope this inspires you to continue moving forward in the quest for truth. We live in a world where information is always at our fingertips and sometimes that is a double-edged sword. Continue learning, researching, digging, and asking the hard questions.
Onward and upward!
