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.

WHAT. THE. HECK?? This sounds like kind of a big deal… From Daily Wire: Overstock CEO Patrick Byrne, who resigned from the company on Thursday amid his alleged ties to a government operation, made bombshell accusations on CNN late on Thursday night, claiming that top FBI officials reached out to him in 2015-2016 to conduct law enforcement activities that turned out to be political espionage. Byrne appeared to indicate that the request came from FBI agents after it was passed down from a top FBI official, who he later says he learned was anti-Trump agent Peter Strzok. Byrne said that the political espionage operation targeted four candidates: Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton, Marco Rubio, and Ted Cruz.

VIDEO PROOF: Democrat Rep. Says We Need the Undocumented to Mow ‘Our Beautiful Lawns’

Will the MSM care? Nah.

Imagine if New Jersey Democrat Rep. Tom Malinowski – Who? – was a Republican. He would, unequivocally, beyond a shadow of a doubt, be forced to resign from office. No question about it. Here’s why… From Daily Wire: Rep. Tom Malinowski (D-NJ) explained to his constituents earlier in the week that illegal immigrants are necessary members of New Jersey’s 7th Congressional District because they are willing to take on the jobs that the community’s teenagers will no longer do. Malinowski noted, “We have to think about the jobs because the reason this happens is because there are a lot of jobs in our community that, like it or not, for better or worse, Americans are not willing to take.” He added, “I mean, who do you think is taking care of our seniors? Fifty percent of the eldercare workers in the state of New Jersey are immigrants, most of them legal – most of them documented – but certainly some of them are not. Who do you think is mowing our beautiful lawns in Somerset County? We don’t usually ask but a lot of those workers are undocumented.” Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) used to talk an awful lot like President Trump, back in the day. In fact, old (…or young?) Pelosi did not care for illegal aliens. She even went as far as saying “we certainly don’t” need more of them. See for yourself: https://twitter.com/IWV/status/1152186873252651014?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1152186873252651014&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fvideo-surfaces-showing-hypocrite-pelosi-sounding-a-lot-like-trump%2F Pelosi doesn’t get along well with young House Democrats. She took a major swipe at AOC, Rashida Tlaib, Ilhan Omar, and another freshman liberal in a way that caught Twitter’s attention. See for yourself: Speaker Pelosi says ⁦⁦@AOC⁩, ⁦@IlhanMN⁩, ⁦@AyannaPressley⁩ and ⁦⁦@RashidaTlaib “have their public whatever and their Twitter world. But they didn’t have any following. They’re four people and that’s how many votes they…
