This is amazing, but not really. There is no more authoritarian species in the wild than US liberals. In every controversy, they side with institutions of authority: they love the large corporate press, the FBI, CIA, workplace managers, editors - they worship & revere authority:
Nobody — absolutely nobody — has done more to spread disinformation and deceive the public than large corporate media outlets. That’s their function. This never used to be controversial on the left.

Now they have liberal convinced they’re the warriors against disinformation.
They beg Facebook and Google and other tech giants to regulate our discourse. They think NBC News & CNN are devoted to combatting disinformation and keeping us safe from propaganda. They beg for “gatekeepers” and discourse regulators. They are institutionalists & authoritarians.
