    From an email: Two Facebook Insiders have come forward to Project Veritas with leaked internal documents, showing the Big Tech giant’s plan to police “Vaccine Hesitancy” (VH) through surreptitious “comment demotion.” The company has set up a tier system to rank comments on various scales, based on how much the statement questions or cautions against the COVID-19 vaccination. Facebook admits they are willing to censor comments EVEN IF THEY ARE TRUE. Here are some of the highlights from today’s release: Comments that include “shocking stories” describing “potentially or actually true events, or facts that can raise safety concerns” -- are...
  • VIDEO: Is Mark Zuckerberg's Hoodie Like Leo Bloom's Blue Towel?

    VIDEOMark Zuckerberg is very possessive about his hoodie because he seems to think it gives him a lot of comfort. Does that sound familiar? It should because that was the attitude of Leo Bloom of "The Producers" towards his blue towel. The big difference is that Bloom is a harmless fictional character while Zuckerberg is an all too real near human who not only violates our privacy but censors what we can see including banning President Trump from Facebook. All this power that we allow an over-the-top neurotic who, as you can see, looks as if he is about to...
  • Big Tech Giants From Twitter, Facebook and Netflix Donated $7.5 Million to BLM Cofounder — Then Censored Stories About Her Real Estate Spree

    Big Tech moguls including Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey, Facebook co-founder Dustin Moskovitz, and Patricia Ann Quillin, the wife of Netflix’s billionaire CEO, have donated $7.5 million to groups associated with Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Khan-Cullors. Big Tech has been censoring stories critical about Khan-Cullors and her real estate buying blitz — while she and her groups advocate for policies that the Silicon Valley billionaires support. Specifically, Khan-Cullors has been loudly advocating for Net Neutrality. “Dustin Moskovitz, a billionaire co-founder of Facebook, and his wife Cari Tuna, are among the biggest donors to groups controlled by Khan-Cullors. Through their Open...
  • Facebook has 'attacked a sovereign nation' Australian Prime Minister's fury after Zuckerberg BLOCKS all news

    Daily Mail ^ | Feb 17 | By DANIEL PIOTROWSKI and CHARLIE MOORE, POLITICAL REPORTER and CHRIS PLEASANCE
    Facebook has blocked Australians from accessing and sharing news in protest at a new law which would have forced the site to pay for the content it hosts. Furious Prime Minister Scott Morrison said the move shows tech companies 'think they are bigger than governments and that the rules should not apply to them' while others branded it 'an assault on a sovereign nation' and an 'abuse of power'. The backlash quickly went international, with one Democrat politician in the US saying it shows 'Facebook is not compatible with democracy' while the hashtag 'Delete Facebook' quickly began trending on rival...

    Last week Twitter & Facebook decided they would stifle the speech of the leader of the nation that gave them birth and allowed their owners to become billionaires many times over. We’re not of course talking about the oppressive China and Chairman Xi… No, we’re talking about the United States and President Trump. Think about that. The duly elected President of the United States is no longer able to communicate to supporters and opponents alike via the biggest microphones on the planet because of the decision of two unelected billionaires, Jack Dorsey and Mark Zuckerberg. This is a watershed moment...

    I’m fairly certain that everyone living with First World problems is familiar with the Sad Cat Diaries and their documentation of his grievances.It’s been over 6 years since they were originally released and given the mood of the country I feel it’s time for a re-release; this time on Twitter, with a new narrator. I’m thinking Mr. Tweet hisself, Sad Sack Jack. Based solely on the ratty beard, new tats and nose-ring I’d say he’s currently having a mid-life crisis which makes him perfect for the part. I’m thinking we could just rename them the Sad Jack Diaries and have...

I give these 2 Montréalités extra credit for creative mockery for the manner in which they registered their complaint against government imposed COVID restrictions.

    Former NBA star Kareem Abdul-Jabbar is attacking conservative and anti-woke celebrities, demanding that social media giants step up censorship because these stars are tweeting “irrational and harmful opinions to millions.” In The Hollywood Reporter, Abdul-Jabbar singled out conservative Hollywood stars Jon Voight and James Woods. He also targeted celebrities who refuse to submit to woke ideology, including Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling.. “Social media companies have begun slapping warnings on some messages that are false, incite violence or cause harm to society. But this needs to be done with more consistency and vigilance,” Abdul-Jabbar wrote. “Many Americans imbue stars with...

    Section 230, which is a liability shielding gift from the U.S. to “Big Tech” (the only companies in America that have it - corporate welfare!), is a serious threat to our National Security & Election Integrity. Our Country can never be safe & secure if we allow it to stand. Therefore, if the very dangerous & unfair Section 230 is not completely terminated as part of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), I will be forced to unequivocally VETO the Bill when sent to the very beautiful Resolute desk. Take back America NOW. Thank you!

    Meet your (Chinese) Facebook censorsChina is one of the most censorious societies on earth. So what better place for ­Facebook to recruit social-media censors? There are at least half a dozen “Chinese nationals who are working on censorship,” a former Facebook insider told me last week. “So at some point, they [Facebook bosses] thought, ‘Hey, we’re going to get them H-1B visas so they can do this work.’ ” The insider shared an internal directory of the team that does much of this work. It’s called Hate-Speech Engineering (George Orwell, call your office), and most of its members are based...

    Facebook has deleted a post in which President Trump had claimed Covid-19 was "less lethal" than the flu. Mr Trump is at the White House after three days of hospital treatment having tested positive for the virus. He wrote the US had "learned to live with" flu season, "just like we are learning to live with Covid, in most populations far less lethal!!!" Twitter hid the same message behind a warning about "spreading misleading and potentially harmful information". Users have to click past the alert to read the tweet. "We remove incorrect information about the severity of Covid-19, and have...

    On the first day of my political philosophy class at Shawnee State University in the spring of 2019, a biologically male student raised his hand and I called on him, unwittingly using the now-incendiary words, “Yes, sir.” As a professor of philosophy, I view the classroom as a place of dynamic discussion and exchange. And I work hard to foster an atmosphere of civility and rational discourse, a place where students can seek truth. This student approached me after class and said that he identified as a woman and demanded, from that point on, that I refer to him as...

    BBC ^ | 8/06/20
    Hollywood bosses have been censoring films to placate the film market in China, a report has suggested. The lengthy report says US film companies want to avoid losing access to China's lucrative box office market. It said casting, content, dialogue and plotlines were increasingly being tailored to appease censors in Beijing. The report, compiled by the free speech charity PEN America, claimed China was therefore influencing movies released in cinemas around the world. China holds the world's second largest box office market behind the US. According to the Hollywood Reporter, American films earned $2.6bn (£2bn) in China last year, with...

    Having just written about two separate examples of the woke in Seattle getting rough with people they dislike, I wanted to highlight something about the underlying mindset driving some of this behavior. Yesterday, James Lindsay, one of the people involved in the grievance studies academic hoax, published an essay titled “No, the Woke Won’t Debate You. Here’s Why.” He attempts to explain some of the philosophical reasons why this might be true. In Lindsay’s view the answer isn’t as simple as hoping to avoid being embarrassed. It’s much deeper than that. So far as he is aware, there’s no single explanation published anywhere...
