FB Bans Support of Kyle Rittenhouse

kyle2

Facebook is officially designating the actions of Kyle Rittenhouse, the 17-year-old who allegedly killed two people and wounded another in Kenosha, Wisconsin, after being mobbed and attacked by rioters, a “mass murder,” despite the fact that this has not been proven in court. Facebook confirmed that it would remove any posts that support Rittenhouse.

Conservative author and YouTube personality Mark Dice reported that his Facebook page had received a threat of suspension after he posted a video of Rittenhouse offering to give medical assistance to wounded protesters in Kenosha shortly before the shooting.

“Facebook just removed a video I posted showing Kyle Rittenhouse offering help to a wounded protester in Kenosha,” said Dice, who also posted the video on Twitter.

Australian Police Threaten to Arrest Aussies Critical of Lockdowns!

Following the controversial arrest of a pregnant woman over a Facebook post, police in Australia defended the move and said they had paid over 80 home visits to people warning them they will be arrested if they attend anti-lockdown protests.

28-year-old Zoe Buhler was handcuffed and arrested in her Ballarat home in front of her children yesterday because she used Facebook to organize a ‘freedom day’ anti-lockdown protest in her home town.

Authorities claimed they were “satisfied” that police had acted reasonably and Buhler was charged under section 321G of the state’s Crimes Act 1958.N

However, the president of the Victorian Bar, Wendy Harris QC, said she was concerned about the arrest.

“In the case of Ms Buhler, who was arrested and handcuffed in her home in front of her partner and children, the Bar is concerned that the enforcement action of the police … appeared disproportionate to the threat she presented,” she said.

FB May Block Australians From Sharing News Articles

yikes

After the Australian government said digital giants should compensate media houses for using their stories, Facebook has issued an unprecedented threat that it may ban the country’s users from sharing news stories on its platforms.

“Assuming this draft code becomes law, we will reluctantly stop allowing publishers and people in Australia from sharing local and international news on Facebook and Instagram,” said Facebook’s managing director for Australia and New Zealand, Will Easton, in a blog post.

He also added that the proposed law required the company to choose between “either removing news entirely or accepting a system that lets publishers charge us for as much content as they want at a price with no clear limits.”

“No business can operate that way,” he said.

Australia is planning to enforce some of the strictest limitations on the powers of digital giants like Facebook and Google, which would require the companies to pay for the content they use from local news outlets. The aim is to bring in more transparency into how the platforms use their algorithms to rank content.

FB Caves to Leftists, Promises to Censor President Ahead of Election

big tech

Facebook is ready to censor President Trump at a moment’s notice, the company’s chief operating officer said Tuesday.

With only 75 days til the election, Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg says, while it hasn’t happened yet, any post by Trump deemed to be misinformation or hate speech could be moderated and removed from the platform with over 2.5 billion users.

“Well, when the president violates our hate speech standards or gives false information about voter suppression or coronavirus, it comes down,” Sandberg told MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell when asked if the company would “be more aggressive about monitoring the president’s speech”.

The president has significant reach thanks to his platform on Facebook, with over 30.7 million users following him. Contrast that to Democrat presidential contender Joe Biden, with a paltry 2.6 million followers.

Tech giant Facebook has reportedly threatened to “unpublish” the page of PragerU just one week after Twitter suspended the educational non-profit’s account.

Social media giant Facebook has reportedly threatened to “unpublish” the page of the conservative non-profit group PragerU just a week after Twitter suspended the group’s account. Facebook has threatened to delete PragerU’s page for allegedly repeatedly violating the website’s community standards.

PragerU told Breitbart News that Facebook is retroactively deleting and flagging old PragerU posts and counting one video posted by the group as “multiple violations” which has contributed to the page being marked as “at-risk” of being unpublished.

Zuckerberg Admits FB Suppresses ‘Hate Speech’ Before It’s Seen By Anyone

zuckerfucker2

Facebook censors almost 90 percent of ‘hate speech’ before it’s allowed to circulate, CEO Mark Zuckerberg told Congress at Wednesday’s Big Tech hearing, responding to pressure from Democrats to submit to the advertiser boycott.

“We’re able to proactively identify 89 percent of the hate speech that we take down before, I think, it’s even seen by other people,” Zuckerberg told the Antitrust Subcommittee of the US House of Representatives on Wednesday.

The statement was in response to Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-Maryland) pressuring Facebook to “join the civil rights movement” by submitting to the demands of the Stop Hate For Profit campaign, an advertising boycott accusing Facebook of tolerating “widespread hate” on the platform.

FB Whistleblower Reveals Bias Against Conservatives In Latest Veritas Exposé

fb2

A Facebook content moderator has come forward to reveal rampant bias against conservatives at the social media giant.

Ryan Hartwig, an Arizona-based Facebook content moderator for third-party contractor Cognizant, says he witnessed egregious double-standards both targeting conservatives or favoring liberals.

I was seeing them interfering on a global level in elections. I saw a blatant exception that just targeted conservatives or favored liberals—and you know, we’re deleting on average 300 posts or actioning 300 posts a day,” said Hartwig, adding “If you magnify that by however many content moderators there are on a global scale, that’s a lot of stuff that’s getting taken down.”

Facebook Removes Christian Ministry Opposed to Drag Queen Story Hour

Facebook has made it clear to Pastor Rich Penkoski and his team at Warriors for Christ that if there were to try to reestablish a presence on Facebook, they would be removed immediately.

Speaking to National File, Penoski said nothing that his Facebook page was reported for violated the terms of service laid out by executives of Facebook, but rather was the result of targeted harassment campaigns, or “raids.”

Penkoski and the Warriors for Christ say they are one of many Christian organizations that receive online “raids” from LGBT and other groups, and receive unfair treatment from Facebook when users threaten the lives of members of the group, or any other direct hate speech violation.

FB: Page Celebrating “Dead Cops” Doesn’t Violate Community Standards

dead cops

Facebook has refused to remove a page celebrating “dead cops,” saying that it does not violate their community standards.

The page is titled The Only Good Cops Are Dead Cops and openly incites violence against police officers.

However, when it was reported to Facebook moderators, they reviewed the page and said that although it may be “offensive,” it doesn’t violate any specific community standards.

FB Buys Giphy For $400 Million in Pledge to Banish “Hateful Memes”

ok

Remember when Jeff Bezos agreed to buy the Washington Post back in 2013 for a paltry ~$250 million?

Well, nearly 10 years later, Facebook has reportedly agreed to pay ~$400 million for Giphy, described by Axios as “a popular platform for animated images”. The deal comes as the Trump Administration DoJ cranks up anti-trust scrutiny of tech titans.

The takeaway, according to Axios, is that Facebook’s powerhouse advertising business will enable it to easily monetize Giphy’s content, potentially transforming the business into an extremely profitable one.

Background: A source close to the situation says that the two companies first began talking prior to the pandemic, although that was more about a partnership than an acquisition.
