Facing Irrelevancy, FB Shuts Down Violent Leftist Groups to Attract Users

locekd

In an unexpected move, Facebook has removed nearly 1,000 groups affiliated with far-left anarchist group Antifa and those promoting riotous acts as the platform’s newest policy change aims to strike at militia groups.

The social media giant removed 980 groups, suppressed 1,400 hashtags related to leftist agitators, and scrubbed 520 pages and 160 ads, according to The Washington Times.

The changes mean that the organization’s ability to attract new followers on the site and drive their content would be hampered as their rankings within direct search results have fallen.

Social Media Questions Tom Hanks’ New Citizenship in Greece Where Pedophilia is a “Disability”

pedo4

Actor Tom Hanks and his wife Rita Wilson announced Sunday they’re officially citizens of Greece, prompting a whirlwind of internet rumors claiming the couple’s move was due to pedophilia being classified as a “disability” in the Mediterranean country.

Hanks and Wilson were featured in a photo shared on Instagram by Greece Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis, who stated the couple were now “proud Greek citizens!”

It didn’t take long, however, before conspiracy-minded netizens claimed to have honed in on a possible motive for the move by Hanks, who’s long been at the center of conspiracy theories asserting he’s a Jeffrey Epstein-esque billionaire pedophile.

Perjury: Twitter Admits it Censors Content After Vehemently Denying it to Congress

Twitter has announced a mass ban for thousands of profiles linked to the so-called QAnon community and any related content, citing potential “offline harm,” but critics insist the purge will only raise the movement’s profile.

The social media giant said it would permanently suspend accounts that share content associated with the conspiracy-minded community, arguing such posts could lead to real world harm, though it did not explain how. The sweeping ban will affect up to 150,000 accounts, 7,000 of which have already been wiped from the site, NBC News reported, citing a company spokesperson.

UK Police Brag About Arresting 12-Year-Old Boy For Offensive Social Media Posts

kneel

UK police bragged about arresting a 12-year-old boy for offensive social media posts sent to a multi-millionaire Premier League footballer.

The child was arrested after he sent racist messages to Wilfried Zaha telling the Crystal Palace star “you better not score tomorrow you black cunt,” along with images of the Ku Klux Klan.

Zaha shared the Instagram page belonging to the boy with his 885,000 Twitter followers, prompting massive media denunciations of the child and an immediate police investigation.

“We were alerted to a series of racist messages sent to a footballer today and after looking into them and conducting checks, we have arrested a boy,” tweeted West Midlands Police.

“The 12-year-old from #Solihull has been taken to custody. Thanks to everyone who raised it. Racism won’t be tolerated.”

The Problem with Parler: How a Free Speech App Turned Into Anything But

full of shit

While the bias against conservatives on social media is nothing new, solutions for it are few and far between. No one wants to lose or abandon a platform full of all their old photos, memories, and contacts that they spent years building and accumulating. While alternatives to major brands like Twitter and Facebook exist, they quite frankly for a lack of a better word usually “suck.”

When the Twitter alternative Parler came along, I created a throwaway account to check it out, realized no one was on it, and never thought to check back. Then all of a sudden it was trending on Twitter and everyone was jumping over because influencers were promoting it (and if I know influencers, that means they’re getting paid.)

I was alerted immediately that people had found an imposter account using my verified Twitter/Instagram handle of @iheartmindy that was mimicking my real account with the banner and profile pics and making disgusting and sexually vulgar comments as if it were me. So I go over to report it as do multitudes of other people…and nothing happened. I actually got into a Twitter beef with Dan Bongino over it because I made a comment on one of his posts where he was talking about how amazing Parler was and I mentioned this issue, which he quickly internalized and got extremely rude over. Apparently he’s part owner of it, and I was unintentionally crapping on his parade.

Verified Twitter users shared an erroneous side-by-side image supposedly showing Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin wearing a “Make Whites Great Again” hat.

Several major accounts followed by millions spread the image claiming the person wearing the hat is the same officer who suffocated Minneapolis resident George Floyd on video – with no action taken by Twitter after the image was verified to be inaccurate.

On the left side of the image is a screen shot of Officer Chauvin, seen kneeling on Floyd’s neck as he struggled to breathe. On the right is a photo of a man wearing a “Make Whites Great Again” who has been identified as professional troll Jonathan Lee Riches.

UK: Police Investigating People Who Post Tweets Critical of Lockdown

uk2

Police in the UK are apparently investigating people online who post tweets critical of the coronavirus lockdown.

Toby Young’s LockdownSceptics.org website was contacted by a reader who regularly dissents against the shutdown of the UK on social media.

“I was contacted by a reader who has been very critical of police over-reach on Twitter,” writes Young.

“He saw a Tweet from another sceptic complaining the police had checked his profile on LinkedIn and thought, “That can’t possibly be true. Surely, they’ve got more urgent maters to attend to?” He then checked his own LinkedIn profile and found this.”

UN Chief Antonio Guterres Calls For Social Media Censorship

un

United Nations Secretary General Antonio Guterres shared his thoughts on social media censorship and free speech on Friday, suggesting that all content he doesn’t like should be unilaterally removed as part of “an all-out effort to end hate speech globally.”

In a bizarre tirade that tackled subjects such as memes that poke fun at the elderly, “ethno-nationalism,” and anti-Semitic conspiracy theories,” Guterres argued that the COVID-19 pandemic has unleashed a “tsunami of hate and xenophobia, scapegoating and scare-mongering.”

Guterres listed several negative side effects of the virus and ensuing lockdown, such as “disproportionate effects on certain communities, the rise of hate speech, the targeting of vulnerable groups.”
