(The Olive) Facebook is just a social media site right? Wrong. Facebook is a social media site where many people go to get their news and comment. Websites depend on Facebook likes and shares to help their sites get traffic. Popular conservative news site Right Wing News recently lost most of their traffic, why? Because Facebook censored them. A popular article on Facebook can drive thousands of visits to a website thereby drastically increasing traffic, or decreasing it through censorship.
Many people’s opinions are formed by what they see on Facebook, along with Twitter, YouTube, and of course what comes up in search results on Google. Cable news and TV news is old news – people go to their social media accounts to get their news fix among other things.
Now imagine Facebook decides that the millions of people on Facebook every day are largely going to see only one predominate point of view. Facebook will present a mostly (only mostly as Facebook does not catch every article etc. with an opposing view) leftist liberal viewpoint.
Well, you need not imagine this – Facebook has been and is engaging in “news Suppression”. The owner and CEO of Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg has even admitted such according to Mac Slavo over at SHTF Plan:
Facebook’s founder Mark Zuckerberg has admitted that his social media platform will ramp up “news suppression” ahead of the 2018 midterm elections. Although the term “news suppression” is being used, let’s call it what it is: censorship. (source)
Facebook is going to crack down on fake news and ramp up its intensity of censorship Slavo went on to say. What a surprise…
I mentioned election rigging in the title of this article. If you the voter see only leftist liberal viewpoints because that is the only viewpoint you are allowed to see, then is this not outright election rigging? Facebook might as well be standing in the voting booth with people guiding their choice on the voting ballot.
There are obviously other news sources out there people can go to for the conservative and libertarian viewpoints etc. such as my site The Olive Branch Report. That being said, what if people don’t know about these other sites because Facebook suppresses – actually censors these sites, or because people believe the lies they are fed by liberals on Facebook and other social media sites?
How are people to actually make an informed choice in their vote when they are not even presented with all the information? If you the voter only see the liberal point of view while at the same time said liberals trash any other viewpoint as being dangerous and deceptive – is that really a choice?
Here is another example of Facebook’s despicable deceit: Facebook recently hired Eric Holder’s firm to investigate bias against conservatives! Eric Holder is the poster boy for liberalism, does anyone really believe that Holder’s firm will fairly investigate the bias against conservatives on Facebook? This is the wolf guarding the sheep and promising not to eat any of them.
Recently Mark Zuckerberg sat in front of Congress and lied through his teeth saying he was not aware of much of what was going on at Facebook. Then the Zuck was going to clean up Facebook by removing “fake news” from the newsfeed on Facebook. What a joke, what really happened was that Facebook removed any “news” with a conservative viewpoint while the “news” with a liberal viewpoint was untouched.
Facebook is extremely powerful and they are plain and simply engaging in election rigging just as surely as if they, Facebook were voting for hundreds of thousands of people personally.
Facebook is deliberately diverting your attention from the information that they do not want you to see or know about. If you depend on social media to stay informed, and most do these days – how informed are you when you are fed a steady diet of liberalism and lies?
More people in America are waking up to the facts, and that is something Facebook is attempting to stop and discredit at all costs. The facts are that the Democrats – AKA the liberal socialist progressives, are out to win elections any way they can, cheating, lying, deception, buying off people, bribery, you name it, they will do it. To be fair, some of the Republicans (RINO’s) are not any better.
Facebook, Twitter, Google, and YouTube to name a few want liberal Democrats to win elections. All of these social media giants censor viewpoints and this censorship is reaching critical mass. Helping all of these social media giants is most of the news networks and publications who are solidly liberal in their viewpoints.
We are fighting a seriously deadly battle for the future of America and people need to wake up and get involved now, before it’s too late.
What is the big deal you say? Here is what a liberal Democratic America will look like if they have their way:
- Your right to an opposing opinion will be gone, this is already happening
- Your rights to own a gun will be taken away
- Your taxes that were just cut will be raised up again, Nancy Pelosi admitted this recently
- The U.S. Southern Border will remain open and porous
- All illegals will be welcomed and allowed to remain. Sanctuary cities are already a reality
- Illegals of all kinds will be given citizenship
- Illegals will remain on public assistance and will be guaranteed “rights”
- The U.S. will cease to be a world power – America is “bad” and must be punished.
- The U.S., Mexico, and Canada will become one country
Think this all goes to far? Just question most any college kid to see if my words here ring true.
The so-med terrorist agenda needs to be stopped. Terrorists are exactly what these social media tyrants are; make no mistake about it.
Wake up America and take action now while there still IS an America.
