Is Knoxville heading towards socialism?

I’m not sure how many others in our community have noticed it, but Knoxville is becoming a microcosm of what is happening nationally. The trifecta of leftist politicians, the mainstream media and Big Tech conspire to stifle free speech and silence those who do not agree with them. All of them relentlessly pursue a narrative that is frequently just not true. According to the trifecta of the leftists, the mainstream news media and Big Tech, the summer of 2020 was the “Summer of Peaceful Protests.” Those “peaceful protests” left $2 billion in damages which will come out of your insurance premiums and mine. Federal buildings were set on fire, churches and businesses burned, people killed. Ultra-leftists, some of them armed, set up “autonomous zones” inside American cities, on American soil, yet the only time the leftists will utter the word “treason” is during the riots” at the Capitol. Law enforcement agencies were not allowed to protect the people and property of individuals during the “peaceful protests” but those on Capitol Hill certainly weren’t without protection. Congress employs its own police force and had the national guard surrounding Capitol Hill for some time there after for good measure. Diversion and deflection have become standard operating procedure for the left and their allies.
