Facebook Insiders Reveal Vaccine Comment ‘Demotion’ Campaign

In the future, Facebook could just skip the middle man and tell us exactly what to think.

When we look back at this period in American history, many of us will wonder how we missed the fairly obvious signs that a techno-oligarchy was on the horizon.

Using Facebook as an example, we can see a very real, frightening path toward this wanton and abusive future, as the social media network has made a fortune out of using your content to fuel traffic, and then harvesting data about the online habits of all involved and selling that information to advertisers who can now weaponize your own internet usage against you.  This then allows advertisers to squeeze even more money from the middle class to the upper class, and on a trajectory that will soon create click-farm serfdoms for men like Mark Zuckerberg to rule over.

In this pursuit, Facebook and others like them have decided that free speech will be moderated on their “private” platforms, and massaged in whatever direction those in charge decide upon.

In the case of Zuckerberg’s media behemoth, this means demoting comments on a specific side of the vaccine argument.

Whistleblowers from Facebook are alleging that the tech giant is pushing an effort to censor content expressing vaccine hesitancy on its platform.

New reporting from Project Veritas shows leaked internal memo explaining “Vaccine Hesitancy Comment Demotion” which shows the “goal” is to “drastically reduce user exposure to vaccine hesitancy.”

Another leaked document addressed “Borderline Vaccine (BV) Framework” that delves into how to classify such content with another expressed “goal” of to “identify and tier the categories of non-violating content that could discourage vaccination in certain contexts, thereby contributing to vaccine hesitancy or refusal,” adding “We have tiered these by potential harm and how much context is required in order to evaluate harm.”

And, even wilder…

“Facebook uses classifiers in their algorithms to determine certain content… they call it ‘vaccine hesitancy.’ And without the user’s knowledge, they assign a score to these comments that’s called the ‘VH Score,’ the ‘Vaccine Hesitancy Score,’” one Facebook “insider” told Project Veritas founder James O’Keefe. “And then based on that score will demote or leave the comment alone depending on the content within the comment.”

The insider, who is described by O’Keefe as a “data center technician” for Facebook, revealed that the tech giant was running a “test” on 1.5% of its 3.8 billion users with the focus on the comments sections on “authoritative health pages.”

“They’re trying to control this content before it even makes it onto your page before you even see it,” the insider told O’Keefe.

This sort of blatant tampering with the reality of the national narrative is seen by many as an affront to the First Amendment, however, and there is little doubt that the social media megalith will be fending off fresh attacks from freedom advocates in the days to come.

VIDEO: Police Inaction During Uvalde Shooting has Residents Furious

Authorities have suggested that they are investigating the inaction of some officers during the shooting, but haven’t elaborated further.

As the chaos played out in Uvalde, Texas this week, several local Uvalde residents, (some of them parents of children currently inside the scene of an active shooter situation), were on the street pleading with police to enter the school.

These officers did not enter the school, however, until backup of some sort arrived, and their inaction has many in the community absolutely furious.

Frustrated onlookers urged police officers to charge into the Texas elementary school where a gunman’s rampage killed 19 children and two teachers, witnesses said Wednesday, as investigators worked to track the massacre that lasted upwards of 40 minutes and ended when the 18-year-old shooter was killed by a Border Patrol team.

“Go in there! Go in there!” nearby women shouted at the officers soon after the attack began, said Juan Carranza, 24, who saw the scene from outside his house, across the street from Robb Elementary School in the close-knit town of Uvalde. Carranza said the officers did not go in.

And, what’s more…

Javier Cazares, whose fourth grade daughter, Jacklyn Cazares, was killed in the attack, said he raced to the school when he heard about the shooting, arriving while police were still gathered outside the building.

Upset that police were not moving in, he raised the idea of charging into the school with several other bystanders.

“Let’s just rush in because the cops aren’t doing anything like they are supposed to,” he said. “More could have been done.”

“They were unprepared,” he added.

The harrowing scene was shared on social media, but we must warn you that the video below is not for the faint of heart.

Secret Service Shamed After Drunk Agents Assault Cab Driver in South Korea

There is a history of poor behavior from the Secret Service during Democratic administrations.

You can tell a lot about a White House by the extracurricular nonsense that hits the press surrounding it.

For instance, after one of President Joe Biden’s dogs began biting random people on the grounds, we started hearing murmurs of just how terse and stressful the place had become, with dog behavior experts suggesting that the mood at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue might have a lot to do with the aggression.

This week, the Biden administration beget more bad behavior, but this time it wasn’t from one of the First Pets.

Two U.S. Secret Service agents in South Korea were sent stateside ahead of President Biden’s arrival following their involvement in an off-duty alcohol-related incident.

The two agents, whose identities have not been made public, are on their way back to Washington, D.C. where they will face disciplinary action, a source familiar with the matter told Fox News.

Both agents apparently became intoxicated while not on duty. One of the agents then got into an altercation with a cab driver.

There could be more trouble coming, as well.

In South Korea, officials send mediators to the scene of low-level disputes and then determine if criminal charges would be filed.

One of the agents was interviewed by authorities and no charges have been filed.

The government released one of its usual, dry, boilerplate-esque missives.

“The Secret Service is aware of an off-duty incident involving two employees which may constitute potential policy violations,” USSS chief spokesman Anthony Guglielmi told Fox News. “We have very strict protocols and policies for all employees and we hold ourselves to the highest professional standards.”

There is a history of poor behavior from the Secret Service during Democratic administrations, with a notable incident having occurred in 2012, involving Barack Obama’s agents and a Colombian prostitute.
