Popular podcaster Sam Harris says that the outright censorship of Hunter Biden’s laptop was worth it because of the result. Harris says that while there may be some troubling things on the laptop relating to both Hunter and Joe, those things don’t hold a candle to the level of corruption Donald Trump engaged in. One example Harris used to compare Trump to Biden was the story “Trump University” which he actually didn’t expand on. Harris actually went so far as to say that he doesn’t care what was on Hunter’s laptop. It wouldn’t have mattered at all because the outcome of Trump being removed from office was the focus.
It is important to recall the events of October 2020 for proper context. The proverbial “October” surprise of Hunter Biden’s laptop came just days before the 2020 election. It was verified and reported on by the New York Post. There were pictures of Hunter Biden smoking crack. Emails of Hunter speaking to business connections and referencing “10% for the big guy” were also on the laptop. There may have even been pictures of underage girls on it as well. This story, if allowed to proceed, could have ruined Joe Biden’s campaign and paved the way for a second term for Donald Trump.
The mainstream media and political establishment could not have this. The story was immediately squashed, censored, and laughed away as “eastern European garbage” by networks like Fox News and CNN. The New York Post’s Twitter page was censored by deletion. The latter action was probably the most egregious considering how well-respected and old (over 200 years) the New York Post is. They are not the type of publication to publish nonsense or unfounded rumors as fact. Their reputation had nothing to do with the decision to kill the story. This was all about preserving Joe Biden’s run for President to remove the ultimate enemy of the establishment – Donald Trump. It appears as if Sam Harris is the ultimate friend of the establishment which is why he supports the measures taken to suppress the Hunter Biden laptop story.
