Zuckerberg’s crew want to ruthlessly censor Personalities they dislike but think open calls for violence are A-OK?
Every day, Fascistbook is looking more and more like the censorious Chinese and Pakistani governments whose butts they’ve been kissing for so long.
No wonder the co-founder wants them broken up because it’s Dangerous, and Wired Magazine has expressed fears that his cryptocurrency is evidence that Herr Zuck may be trying to create his own digital country.
It’s part of the reason we’re promoting the ‘Censored‘ event coming up in September with Dinesh D’Souza as the keynote speaker.
Now Zuck’s contempt for those he disagrees with is bleeding through into the real-world with calls for physical violence against voices on (you guessed it) the political right.
Or at least they DID until they got shamed into reversing that policy.
Here’s what Paul Joseph Watson — who was included among Facebook’s Purges — wrote about FB policy toward violence.
A Community Standards update published by Facebook states (emphasis mine); “Do not post: Threats that could lead to death (and other forms of high-severity violence) of any target(s) where threat is defined as any of the following:
Statements of intent to commit high-severity violence; or
Calls for high-severity violence (unless the target is an organization or individual covered in the Dangerous Individuals and Organizations policy)….”
So far, so good, right? After all, their ‘logic’ for purging PJW involved pretending he was somehow a ‘dangerous’ individual. Alright, then — how does FB explain this?
Nope, no infractions there.
As I reported from my own time in ‘Twitter Jail’, these double-standards aren’t just a Facebook Problem: Cry-Bullies: Anatomy Of A Social Media Shakedown — And What We Can Do About It
Of course — with the specific laws they were in violation of being cited in the article, Facebook didn’t have a leg to stand on once they’d been publicly shamed for it by a loud enough voice — and his voice is plenty loud.
An update was since added to the article:
UPDATE: Facebook has deleted its new policy that allowed violent threats against “dangerous individuals” after a backlash. “Dangerous individuals” included anyone Facebook didn’t like.
Maybe one day the left will finally realize that legitimizing violence against political rivals MAKES you become the fascists you flatter yourselves by claiming to oppose.
With the ‘news media’ going out of their way to prove Trump’s accusation of ‘fake news’ to be spot on, is it time he take the fight to Social Media censorship tactics?
Well, there’s no doubt he’s got enough fight in him to take it on!
