Facebook Promises More Active Censorship Ahead of Midterms

This is PRECISELY what the First Amendment is supposed to protect us from, and if Congress won’t act, it will be up to We The People to preserve our rights.

Now that Facebook has committed their massive, 800-entity purge of political voices with no legal recourse, the social media platform is undoubtedly feeling emboldened.

Weeks ago, Facebook sharpened their axe.  They decided, along with Twitter and Google congruently, that We The People shall not be allowed to promote our political discussions on their platforms. Instead, only those outlets chosen by the Silicon Valley Overlords would be allowed to promote discourse and conversation online, thereby negating any possibility of refuting the mainstream narrative.  This purge was committed on both sides of the political spectrum, in a bipartisan culling of the American people’s influence on their own elected officials.

In short:  This was barnyard excrement of the highest order, and Facebook is simply succumbing to the same financial pressures that corrupted the 24 “news” channels.

So that leaves the American people with a partial blindfold heading into the midterm elections, with our votes only being swayed by the narrative assembled and weaponized by Facebook, Google, CNN, MSNBC, Twitter, Fox News, and other “approved” sources.

It’s exactly the sort of thing that that First Amendment is supposed to protect.

Now, knowing that no one is going to stop their informational tyranny, Facebook has even promised to escalate their narrative-building efforts in the final week before We The People head to the polls.

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg stated recently that the upcoming U.S. midterm elections will be “a real test” of the company’s ability to crack down on “hate speech” and misinformation.

The Hollywood Reporter stated in a recent article that Facebook will make its biggest increase in money spent to combat “hate speech” and misinformation on its platform this year, according to CEO Mark Zuckerberg. Zuckerberg stated that despite Facebook’s increased expenditure, the company still won’t be as “dialed in as well as everyone would like us to be,” in relation to security and influence campaigns on the platform.

Zuckerberg stated that the upcoming midterm elections will be “a real test” of the newly implemented safeguards designed to protect the platform from “bad actors,” following reports of numerous foreign influence campaigns on the social media website. Zuckerberg said that during the upcoming election, the platform will see “all the good and bad that humanity can do,” but that the social media platform is getting better at hiding the “bad stuff” from users.

The spirit of the First Amendment strictly forbids this sort of discrimination of opinions, yet our government allows it to occur.

Why?  Well it could be due to the fact that Facebook and Congress are both succumbing to industry lobbyists and political powerhouses, fueled by major market advertisers.  These advertisers are the same ones who completely castrated cable news networks by holding them hostage for commercial airtime, and who have consistently used divisive and combative language to promote conflict.

Conflict, of course, is the prime catalyst of viewership, which, in turn, creates revenue.  To make money, Facebook has to play by these rules the same way that CNN does.  Hence, Facebook and CNN will both continually and inevitably bend the knee to the corporate monarchy in order to continue their gainful growth.

It’s not right, and if our public servants in Washington won’t do anything about it, We The People may need to find a way to motivate them into action.

Cable News Blasted for Conjuring Controversy in Columbus Police Shooting

This is just dirty.

The sad truth of the matter, when it comes to the mainstream media, is that they are more successful when we are more emotional. It’s a dirty trick of human biology:  The chemicals in our brain that allow us to feel joy, sorrow, humor, and fury are just similar enough to one another that we become addicted to them, one and all.  Feeling something stimulates our self-awareness, and we learn to crave it. So, when you tune into CNN and what they are saying angers you, they’re planting small hooks in your noggin, reeling you in to watch the commercials that pay all of their salaries. If you watch Fox, however, and you find yourself enthusiastically cheering after a host or guest has a mic drop moment, your brain again finds what it’s looking for, and here you are seeing your 14th Progressive commercial of the day. All of the big networks know this and actively participate in this salacious shamanism, and sometimes they cross the line. Liberal outlets HuffPost and AJ+ omitted key details or pushed false narratives in their videos about the fatal police shooting of a Black teenager in Columbus, Ohio on Tuesday. HuffPost failed to note the woman who was shot, Ma’Khia Bryant, pushed another female to the ground and lunged at another with a knife when police arrived at the scene. The misleading HuffPo video was accompanied by the following text, which appeared to paint the police as the villain. “Black girl killed by police,” the text read. “Police in Columbus, OH shot & killed a Black teen around the same time the verdict was read in the Derek Chauvin trial. Body-camera footage showed an officer firing several times at Ma’Khia Bryant before she collapsed to the ground. The video also showed a knife falling next to the…

Pelosi Gets Ripped for Tone Deaf ‘Thank You’ to George Floyd

Even the mainstream media savaged Madam Speaker.

Some of our elected officials really cannot read the room, and Nancy Pelosi seems to be one of them. The House Speaker has been at the forefront of the racial issues that our nation is facing today, which is all fine and good.  This is America, after all, and it certainly doesn’t appear as though we’re seeing liberty and justice for all right now. But the issue is in how Pelosi portrays her feelings on the subject that has many in America cringing. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., is facing intense backlash after she thanked George Floyd for “sacrificing your life for justice” Tuesday following the conviction of former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin on murder and manslaughter charges. Speaking alongside the Congressional Black Caucus shortly after the verdict was handed down, the top House Democrat looked to the sky and said, “Thank you, George Floyd, for sacrificing your life for justice. “For being there to call out to your mom,” Pelosi went on. “How heartbreaking was that? [To] call out for your mom, ‘I can’t breathe.’ “But because of you and because of thousands, millions of people around the world who came out for justice, your name will always be synonymous with justice,” the speaker added. The callous nature of Pelosi’s “gratitude” was off-putting for many, even within the mainstream media sphere. “Nancy Pelosi thanks George Floyd for being murdered,” Huffington Post editor Philip Lewis summed up. “What in the actual f,” New York Post columnist Karol Markowicz reacted. “Ummm… he didn’t sacrifice his life… he was brutally, horrifically murdered. What the hell is this,” Guardian writer Hannah Parkinson tweeted. “Sacrifice implies he had a choice,” LA Times reporter Melissa Evans similarly wrote. “Oh, that is very bad. Very, very no,” GQ correspondent Julia Ioffe expressed. “real [W]hite person wearing kente…
