Why Didn’t Facebook Censor That?

A Democrat Party apparatchik in Minnesota has been suspended without pay for a week after posting this little zinger on Facebook: “11.7 [day after Election Day]–bring them [Republicans] to the guillotines” (https://apnews.com/cd7c880bf8bb4d94a95512b756a0e23e). The state party commissar took pains to state that Democrats do not, in fact, propose to murder Republicans in the wake of next month’s elections. We are at liberty not to believe this disclaimer.

But my question is, “Hey, Facebook! How come you didn’t censor that? Ya mean that wasn’t hate speech? That wasn’t advocating violence?” Oh, he was just kidding–!

If a Republican had said that about Democrats, Facebook would have banned him for life.

Get this through your heads, boys ‘n’ girls. Up against the Mob Rule Party, America faces a stacked deck. The game is crooked from the get-go. Motivated solely by a lust for power, fueled by rage, there is nothing they won’t do–short of murder–to get back into control of the country. We guarantee there will be more Democrat votes cast than there are Democrat voters.

In 2016 they cheated like crazy and still lost, largely because they believed their own propaganda and thought Witch Hillary was a shoo-in. We can’t count on them making that mistake again. We can count on them cheating even more.

They must never, never, never be allowed to win again.

 


Facebook: Clueless

Facebook stock is tanking, losing billions of dollars–and they still don’t have a clue. For instance:

Cable talk show host Alex Jones has been banned for 30 days for “violating Facebook’s Community Standards” against “bullying” (defined as physical intimidation) and “hate speech” (any speech less than supportive of liberals’ pet social re-engineering projects). We are not told what, exactly, Jones said or did that constituted these supposed violations. They don’t even bother to try to describe whatever his offenses were. “Hey, we’re Facebook, take our word for it!”

But their word isn’t good enough.

Meanwhile, rogue Congresswoman Maxine Waters is out there urging people to mob members of the government–uh, that would be physical intimidation, wouldn’t it?–if they dare appear anywhere in public. She wants people to be “out in the streets screaming… Do something. Make something happen.” What do Democrats call that–love speech?

But nobody’s banning Maxine Waters.

Personally, I’m not a member of the government, not anybody who’d be recognized in public–but I am convinced it would be virtually suicidal on my part to try to walk past any crowd being addressed by Maxine Waters.

And I don’t appreciate it.

And I will vote for anyone who promises, believably, to make it stop.


Have I Been Banned by Facebook?

All of a sudden, again, I’m getting no Facebook referrals. WordPress says I’m still connected to Facebook–but there are no referrals. Was it something I said, that Facebook’s robots didn’t like?

I don’t know, nobody tells me anything. I suppose a few of you could try to do a referral or two, with one of my posts, and see what happens. I’ll let you know if it works.

I wonder if all speech but lib-speech is condemned as “hate speech.”


Facebook: Declaration of Independence ‘Hate Speech’

Facebook celebrated America’s founding by ruling our founding document “hate speech” (https://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2018/jul/4/facebook-flags-declaration-independence-hate-speec/)

A small-town newspaper was posting the Declaration of Independence, piece by piece, a day at a time, until Facebook scrubbed the last post–which was the Declaration’s charges against King George III, which included the charge of inciting “merciless Indian savages” of making war on Colonial civilians–quite a sore point in 1776.

Facebook’s censorship was executed by its computer algorithms, an exercise in Artificial Mindlessness. The robots couldn’t appreciate the historical context of Thomas Jefferson’s statement.

After a day of public protests and complaints, Facebook caved and restored the post.

The robots have the excuse of being mindless. Liberals, who say such things on purpose, don’t. If I only had a nickel for every leftid who called the Declaration of Independence “hate speech,” I could buy Facebook and adjust its attitude.

They can’t even sort of like America on the Fourth of July.

Just another bit of that Great Blue Wave that’s supposed to sweep these anti-American schmendricks back into power in November.


London Mayor Wants **More** Facebook Censorship

See the source image

The Assad wannabe who bills himself as “the mayor of the most diverse city in the world”–meaning Muslims run it, and don’t you dare get in the way–says Facebook and Twitter had better provide even more censorship of “hate speech,” or else (http://www.breitbart.com/london/2018/03/12/sadiq-khan-warns-silicon-valley-hate-speech-fake-news-blames-donald-trump/).

There’s too much hate speech out there, babbles Sadiq Khan, mayor of London. And it’s Donald Trump’s fault. Oh, and by the way–“hate speech” is always a one-way street. Only conservatives can ever be guilty of it. Never leftists. So hating Donald Trump is not “hate,” but hating Sadiq Khan is. Get it?

Khan holds up Germany as an example. There, Angela Merkel has answered criticism of her insane immigration policies by classifying it as lawfully prohibited “hate speech” if anyone tries to post it on the social media. Mr. Khan is sick of deplorables saying not-nice things about their nations’ dear leaders, and aims to put a stop to it.

Theologically speaking, liberty and decency don’t come naturally to human beings born with Original Sin. They are only obtainable through faith in Jesus Christ. This is why freedom is in the crosshairs these days, everywhere you look.

Pray harder. Sing louder. And tell the truth. Leaders really hate it when you do that.


… And It Turned Around and Bit Them

Image result for images of censorship

This month, this humble blog has lost upwards of 20% of its reader traffic–which I’ve put down to referrals from Facebook suddenly drying up for no reason I can discover.

But the Chicago Tribune has lost a lot of traffic, too; and they’re saying it’s because of Facebook censoring much of their content as “fake news” ( http://www.breitbart.com/tech/2017/04/19/chicago-tribune-accuses-facebook-fake-news-killing-web-traffic/). So it turns out I’m not the only one.

I’ve been reading reports from various media sources, and some of them are saying that Facebook has censored links to major conservative news sites, like Drudge and Breitbart, and is also experimenting with some means of flagging certain items as “satire,” and hence not to be believed. Killjoys.

Here we link to articles in Drudge or Breitbart rather often, and I’ve been known to cook up a satirical piece now and then. Well, all right–a bit more than now and then.

But does this explain where all my referrals have disappeared to? I don’t know: I don’t understand computer stuff well enough to make sense of these reports.

I must admit, though, to a certain satisfaction in seeing big fat liberal news media complaining that now their stuff is getting censored, too. Like, who was it that wanted all this censorship in the first place? Who was doing the loudest hissing and moaning about “fake news”? They asked for censorship, they got it, and it turned around and bit them. (Not a dry eye in the house!)

None of which gets my referrals back, or restores my viewership to what it had been for five months in a row until this month came along.

If any of you out there are Facebook-savvy, please enlighten us.


What’s With Facebook?

Image result for images of book locked and chained shut

Suddenly Facebook won’t let me share any of my posts. When I try, I just get a message that the post contains “content that has been blocked by our security system.”

Really? A hymn by the Ruppe Sisters? A news video that’s already been seen by gajillions of people? What’s in those to set off Facebook’s alarm bells?

If any of you out there  can enlighten me as to what’s happening with me and Facebook this morning, I’d much appreciate it if you’d let me know. Are they banning conservative or Christian content? What’s the story?

And are you able to share these posts on Facebook, even if I can’t?


The Return of the Facebook Thingy

As mysteriously as they vanished this afternoon, now they’re back–the little numbers inside the blue Facebook circle at the bottom of each post on this blog. I have no idea what made them disappear, nor have I any idea by what unknown agency they have returned.

I don’t want you to get the idea that I’m thin-skinned about the idea of getting censored for my views. We’re not Europe yet–although News With Views, where I have a column once a week, has had real censorship (read “hacking”) issues which they have been put to a lot of trouble to rectify.

Someday soon in London, England, a blog like this will probably become impossible, what with a specially trained police squad–did I just say “police squad?” As in Leslie Nielson?–and a lot of frothing-at-the-mouth left-wing “volunteers,” backed up by Home Office money. London’s new Sharia Lite regime wishes to extirpate “hate speech,” meaning any speech that leftids and their cohorts don’t like. Don’t look for “Death to the infidels!” to be listed as a thing you’re not allowed to say.

Oh, well… time for a nap. See y’all later.
