They took a similar approach to the NY Post story with revelations about Hunter Biden. The story was, indeed, what you called “unverified” – but it went through a very different level of scrutiny than any story containing dirt on President Trump’s family. All that was required to label it “misinformation” was the fact that it didn’t contain one single negative reference to Donald Trump. It’s always suspicious when not one hooker is peeing on Trump’s bed – you can’t get any more “Russian disinformation” than that.
Social Media Censorship
It’s one thing to lose your dignity as citizens, and another to just lose your country altogether, and that is the circle of hell that the Left has dragged everyone else into since even before Hillary Clinton booted the 2016 election. This tyrannical Maoist managerial mob, grown paradoxically rich beyond precedent, became a tool of the state itself working around the inconvenient first amendment to hog-tie public debate. Will the US government allow Mr. Musk to get away with liberating the new “public square?”
Facts Matter, Unless They’re Bad For Joe Biden: New Analysis By Big Tech Watchdog Exposes Mass Hypocrisy
Yet as bad as this analysis looks for Big Tech – and for our freedom of speech as a result – the picture looks even more bleak when we consider the context. MRC’s analysis only took into consideration the censorship of material relating to Joe Biden. What would those numbers look like if they included criticisms of Vice-President Kamala Harris? And House Speaker Nancy Pelosi? And Senate Leader Chuck Schumer?
Indeed, we the people can fight for ourselves by building communities from the bottom-up that demonstrate self-reliance and self-motivation. In many cases, the utilization of modern technology can also enhance productivity and efficiency, whether we’re running in-person or remote homeschooling programs or reaching out to and connecting with like-minded patriots.
We have leadership members at the highest levels of BLM engaging in the policing of social media platforms including Facebook. When the group identifies anyone making unfavorable remarks or promoting content critical of BLM, they then flex their muscles by contacting accomplices at the platforms who then shut down those criticisms. And they even go so far as to hire private investigators to go after the naysayers.
Our own government is actively conditioning The People to accept censorship. –to believe that information and differences of opinion are dangerous, that it’s okay to shut others down, punish them, scapegoat them or do whatever you want to them…even forcibly remove them from society if they don’t comply with tyrannical edicts. If the state that stands to benefit from such imposed tyranny can convince the people that some of their countrymen are dangerous, they can also get them to believe that they deserve whatever they get–maybe even get them to snitch on their neighbors. Where have we heard all this before?
He’s not alone. He joins an army of climate scientists and medical professionals, all of whom have continued to do science long after their file had been weaponized to advance partisan political agendas. And the COVID Cult makes the Climate Cult look like pikers. Iverson reports not just on the silencing of experts hoping to engage in professional debate but the effort by those in government to silence them.
When lobbed softballs on the subject of misinformation or disinformation (on election integrity and COVID, for example), Secretary Mayorkas said that addressing this was under the purview of the Department of Homeland Security. That they were working on it because “misinformation, uh, pointedly, disinformation have very serious and significant ramifications for homeland security. “
Stossel is suing because “Facebook’s ‘fact checkers’ labeled climate change information that Stossel posted as “false and misleading.” They called him a liar, inferred statements Stossel never made (that sounds familiar), and he’s claiming defamation in pursuit of a greater public good.
The First Amendment clearly prohibits Congress from limiting or infringing on our right to Free Speech, and the founders would have scoffed at the suggestion that they also needed to specifically restrict private enterprise, as well, from usurping total authority and censoring our free speech, deciding who can speak and who could not, and what they can say. That would have been considered absurd.
I’d sent the Twitter twits a link to my first article, in which I also called them Twitter twits, which probably didn’t exactly endear them to me. I also wrote in reference to my possibly deleting the tweet that this will never, ever happen. The Twitter twits might have taken this as a bit of a challenge and perhaps want to see me go back on my word — see me blink first, as I said.
These Democrats, who claim to be the party of the people, have morphed into the party above the people. They use this power to repress their followers, keeping them in constant need of the government to exist. In this case, the government is the Democrat Party. This explains why in cities like Baltimore, Chicago, San Francisco, and Los Angeles that are falling into the abyss of former great cities, voters continue to re-elect Democrats.
There is a phenomenon whereby people tend to believe the first thing they hear about something and then when a different explanation comes along, they are far less inclined to believe it. This is because people don’t like to admit that they have been duped. Because lies spread so quickly now, it is very difficult to overcome them with the truth. Consequently, rapid communication has had a negative overall effect on society.
Blaming Facebook for killing people if users post erroneous information about vaccines is akin to accusing a bullhorn of murder if someone uses it to shout “fire!” in a crowded movie theater. Facebook is a platform, a tool, and like just about every other tool imaginable, people will misuse tools.
In short, Zuckerberg and his wife are now in the business of developing and marketing vaccines, with a particular focus on vaccines that are used against exactly the kind of viruses represented by COVID-19. They have already invested a massive amount of money in this effort.
Members of this so-called “board” were appointed by Facebook leadership, who are overwhelmingly leftist Democrats. Naturally, those who were appointed are overwhelmingly leftist Democrats as well. It’s ridiculous. This situation is like the Los Angeles Dodgers bringing their own umpires to a game and the fans believing those umpires had credibility.
We’re in a culture war that’s just beginning to heat up, and we should act accordingly. And while our opponents may have a massive head start on us, that gap is ripe with opportunity for conservative businesses to fill the subsequent voids.
Big Tech companies like Twitter and Facebook have gone beyond the pale with what they did to silence discussion about the New York Post stories about Joe Biden’s lies and Hunter Biden’s corruption. In fact, by shutting down the Trump Campaign’s account for doing nothing other than tweeting out an article, I think that Twitter is interfering in the election.
