Facebook censorship

June 25, 2020 |

Project Veritas has released another undercover video, this one allegedly exposing the free speech-crushing leftist bias inside Facebook.

Facebook insider/whistleblower Zach McElroy said, “We are essentially in charge of what gets said and what gets stifled,” and he’s willing to testify to Congress about Facebook’s bias and its algorithm that results in 75-80% of posts selected for review being ones that support Trump or conservative causes.

The video captures Facebook moderators bragging about how they target and sideline conservative posts. One is asked if she deletes every Republican post that comes up, and she replies, “Yes! I don’t give no (bleep)s, I’ll delete it.” As for anti-Trump posts that do violate policy, she said, “You gotta take it down, but I leave it up. If you see something that’s not supposed to be up, it’s probably me.” Another said, “If someone is wearing a MAGA hat, I am going to delete them for terrorism…I think we are all doing that.”

Check out the link to see the Project Veritas video, as well as video of Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg testifying under oath to Congress that Facebook doesn’t have any bias, why, “to the contrary, our goal is to be a platform for all ideas.”

He must define “all ideas” the way the New York Times defines “all the news” in its motto, “All the news that’s fit to print.” That is, all the news that fits the leftwing political agenda. If Congress doesn’t change the law to yank Facebook’s protection from lawsuits as a “neutral platform” (HA!), then can we at least see perjury charges brought?

    Just a week and a half ago I was suspended 24 hours from Facebook for “not meeting Facebook Community standards”, lol..I made a comment about the Muslim woman in our Congress when I saw the post where she intends to stop all Social Security benefits to us old people who do not deserve it and have broke this country, and put it to a better use...WELFARE”..Of course, I went a little nutty, and posted all the people on SS have worked and paid into that and deserve every penny they get. She said old people are draining America.She wants to put that money into more Welfare. I said right..we aren’t paying enough welfare to BLM setting home doing nothing and Muslim immigrants that slid into the US. Sponging now..you want to give them more! Then I see on Facebook a post, a woman was upset about she reported it to Facebook, but they said it DID NOT GO AGAINST THEIR Community Standards... A post that had a couple guys on the left and words in the middle that said “Kill all white people”...Now I think my saying something about a woman having a towel on her head should land me in the so called notorious “Facebook jail” if posts like this one are acceptable ! Do you?

    Facebook, YouTube, Google, Twitter & Co. have essentially become public utilities. Imagine having your telephone calls or e-mails filtered and censored! Or losing your electricity if you have a certain lawn sign! These companies have grown enough to require this coverage.

    Mark Zuckerburg should be charged with perjury; and he and the Facebook staff that are manipulating these posts should be called to testify before Congress, and charged with violating the civil rights of many Americans First Amendment rights guaranteed under the Constitution. This is reprehensible and morally wrong. If I were an employer I would never trust any of these individuals if they applied for a job. We reap what we sow.

    Facebook is violating freedom of speech and lying when they use the fact checking it is removing comments they say aren't true but they aren't checking they just don't like it because they are liberals and we are conservative.

    I want to hear what you base this on. Free speech must be protected! Who are the employee’s who would even consider jail to do this? Let’s hear what you have,there is far too much at stake! Send your information to Barr!

    Why is our President calling for our best to take out Antifa. On The High Command channel they say doors homes are being kicked in and everyone in the house being sodomized and dorced to give up their money. Is our President really for us or is he one of THEM. How can we stay all warm and fuzzy for the President when our veterans are being murdered and families are damaged beyond repair. We need action. We need to see this stopped. This is unacceptable, our own country is being overtaken by Satanic monsters and its got to stop. Call Martial Law. Bring in the heavy hitters or we cannot vote for a man letting our nation literally go to hell.

    Facebook deactivated my account and gave me no warning they were going to do so. Nor did they tell me what i did wrong. I was banned forever with no recourse for one reason and one reason only. I am a Conservative Christian who did not conform to Facebook's authoritarian idealogical rules of what they deem is acceptable speech and what is not. In other words , they censored me because i was expressing my Conservative Christian beliefs. I have a friend in a nursing home who needs me to have Facebook because Messenger is her only way she can call me if she has an emergency. If her oxygen tube comes undone, and she gets no help in time, she could die. She needs me to be on Facebook Mesenger for her safety at night when the staff is sometimes not around at night. Does Facebook care that her life has been put at risk because of their decision to delete my account? Obviously not. All they see is a bad Trump supporter who needs to be silenced. They couldn't care less about the potential ramifications of their arbitrary and wreckless decision making. I tried everything to get back on. Facebook won't let me come back. Nor is there a phone number to call, to voice my grievance. If my friend in the nursing home dies, her blood will be on Facebook's hands!! I did nothing wrong. Facebook gave me no warning that i was going to be kicked off the site. I don't know why they deleted me. They act like they're God and no one holds them to account! My friend, Marie, is also a conservative Christian. She and her likeminded friend, Joan, have also been kicked off Facebook in the past, simply for sharing their Conservative Christian views. Think about that. Good Christian women kicked off Facebook! Facebook has kicked me off twice, and now i can't come back for Marie!! And i don't even know what i said or did wrong! Needless to say, i feel like an injustice has been conmitted against me by a social media company that, in my opinion, has too much power over what we can say, do, and even think! This has to stop! President Trump and the Senate needs to hold Facebook to account for their authoritarian misdeeds! Mark Zuckerberg and his Facebook gestapo have become too powerful! This is a monster of authoritarianism that will control us all if we don't take a stand now, and hold them to account through our elected representatives! Enough is enough!!!

    I would really like to see perjury charges brought against Zuckerberg. He has no right to censor any posts.

    You offered FB to everyone and now you assert control on Free Speech! You created a FB jail much the same as telling us you are a radical leftist. You allow left wingers to post what they want. Your group of rats are all Liberals! Mark! You grew up here, created an idea and have made millions and millions in my America. Now you want to turn in our back on the very hands that feed you. Shame on you. You eventually have to answer!

    Should Zuckerberg be charged with perjury for lying under oath?

    I just had a somewhat different experience with Facebook censorship. I was in the middle of a healthy historical debate concerning The Rape of Nanking with a Facebook friend, when suddenly my post was reported as spam???? My friend took the popular point of view, but I am a bit of a Japanese sympathizer. Mind you, I have a Master's degree in history, so I'm not simply spewing out antigovernment garbage. This particular post, by the way, was very tame and backed by years of historical study and relevant, factual data. So, apparently, critically thinking is not allowed on Facebook, if that means taking an anti-American government stance, in any way. And, let me reiterate, I wasn't really even discussing The United States, but merely looking at the historical event, from a Japanese point of view. Facebook moderators, and therefore Facebook in general, are in no way unbiased when it comes to censorship!
