Dems Hurry To Scrape The Truth Away

There is only so much they can obstruct, but more details are now emerging.

Head of Instagram Adam Mosseri said Monday that Facebook has a bias, replying to a tweet about the massive platform, “We’re not neutral.”

“We’re not neutral,” Mosseri admitted of Facebook (which owns Instagram). “No platform is neutral, we all have values and those values influence the decisions we make.”

“We try and be apolitical,” he said, “but that’s increasingly difficult, particularly in the US where people are more and more polarized.”

Mosseri’s comments came on the heels of the apparently coordinated censorship of President Donald Trump from Twitter, Facebook, and then YouTube. Apple, Google, and Amazon, too, teamed up in nuking Parler, an alternative to Twitter, for allegedly insufficiently censoring “violent content.”

The Instagram head was responding to a comment from tech writer Will Oremus regarding Facebook’s announcement of Roy Austin, formerly of the Obama administration, to serve as Facebook’s “VP of Civil Rights.”

“Roy Austin Jr. has been named vice president of civil rights with the mandate to oversee Facebook’s accountability on racial hatred and discrimination on its platform,” reported NPR. “He’s slated to start Jan. 19.”

In response to the announcement, Oremus posted: “This feels like the kind of move that Facebook could have made 5+ years ago if it hadn’t been so intent at the time on portraying itself as a neutral platform and promoting online connection as an absolute good.”

“We’re not neutral,” Mosseri responded. “No platform is neutral, we all have values and those values influence the decisions we make. We try and be apolitical, but that’s increasingly difficult, particularly in the US where people are more and more polarized.”

Facebook chief operating officer Sheryl Sandberg said Monday that Trump’s account “will be suspended until at least the inauguration and perhaps longer,” The Guardian reported. “Sandberg, speaking to Reuters, said the company has no plans to lift its block on Trump’s accounts and that she was ‘glad’ that Facebook had taken the action.”

“This shows the president is not above the policies we have,” said Sandberg.

Twitter announced Friday that Trump was permanently banned from using their platform due to “risk of further incitement of violence.”

“After close review of recent Tweets from the @realDonaldTrump account and the context around them — specifically how they are being received and interpreted on and off Twitter — we have permanently suspended the account due to the risk of further incitement of violence,” Twitter said in a statement. “In the context of horrific events this week, we made it clear on Wednesday that additional violations of the Twitter Rules would potentially result in this very course of action. Our public interest framework exists to enable the public to hear from elected officials and world leaders directly. It is built on a principle that the people have a right to hold power to account in the open.”

  1. Sure they in a hurry! They hope the people forget about it! But we won’t! Just like it say in Matthew 24:24 they have stolen the ELECT!

  2. These tech, self-appointed censors absolutely must be stopped. No one has a right to deliberately take away our constitutional rights of free speech and expression. This is pure communism.

  3. “Our public interest framework exists to enable the public to hear from elected officials and world leaders directly. It is built on a principle that the people have a right to hold power to account in the open.” Interesting comment, though quite hypocritical. Enabling the public to hear from elected officials means we have to be able to hear from them. That can’t happen if they are censored. The people having a right to hold power to account in the open means the people, the general population, get to do that, and they do so by their comments to whatever the politician or official may say. That can’t happen if the official’s account is suspended. In fact, suspending the account prevents the very action that you say the public interest framework exists for. Total hypocrisy.

  4. Roy Austin, formerly of the Obama administration, to serve as Facebook’s “VP of Civil Rights” From the Obama administration that set back race relations by half a century? Boy, you’re dead set on proving you’re not neutral!

  5. Gosh! You mean they CENSOR whom they’re told NOT to LIKE? But they originally started as a “public platform” for opinion. HOW can this BEEEE? Look, folks: they’re privately owned (at least on the surface). Actually operating as data-gathering for CIA, FBI, DHS and NSA. They’re living off YOUR $ in taxes. Don’t kid yourself. And the more pix of your vacation you post, the more they know about you, where you go, what you eat, if you drink, and your house is VACANT! Wake Up, y’all! Trump’s the real deal, you TDS slugs just can’t quite grasp it.

  6. I just cannot believe how obvious all of their lies are. They must think that everybody in this country is as ignorant as their followers, in that they believe every single lie that they utter like V.P. of Civil Rights. Civil Rights starts with treating every body equally. How does that square with censoring half the population and calling us names? It is more and more obvious as indicated by their actions that PRESIDENT TRUMP won the election, like all of this censorship for one, screening the Secret Service for Trump supporters, using an army bigger than what we have in Iraq and Afghanistan to protect Biden’s fake election. If he had won the election and it was a clean, honest election with no fraud, he wouldn’t need such protection. Think about that. Biden is like the leader of North Korea, Right? I detest Corruption and lying and those are the two hallmarks of Democrat Party leaders. Hear is a math problem for you that says it all. According to public records and the Washington Post, 141,535,600 registered voters voted in the 2020 election, right? President Trump was officially credited with 74,111,419 votes, right? So how many legal votes remain? 67,424,161 votes are left. So the question is simple, how many votes did Joe Biden get? They said that he got 81 million votes which is more than any president in history, even Barack Obama. Let me tell you how bid this lie is. For Joe Biden to get that many votes there would have had to be 13 million more votes than actual voters. I am pretty sure they will censor this

  7. No matter what one may think of Donald Trump, the tactics used by the Socialist Democrats, and the willingness of the big social media outlets, as well as the traditional media to remove him from office, has set a very dangerous precedence. After this election I doubt if what most Americans have come to understand as democracy, will ever be the same again. The price paid for regaining the Presidency may be acceptable to Joe Biden, Hillary Clinton, Nancy Pelosi, Obama, and their billionaire cohorts, but did they ever stop to think what the price would be, by polarizing 50% of the nation, a well armed 50% who have every right to be angry.
    As an Englishman I am conversant with the social engineers tactics of denial, smugly pretending that nothing amiss has just taken place, that everything is normal and above board.
    Denying that a pressure cooker is about to explode, wont prevent it from exploding! And just as in Britain, the Socialist Democrats in the United States have with no thought to anything else other than their own agenda, created a pressure cooker that will now explode! It is inevitable, it is just a question of time, and how big the explosion is going to be. These people seem to have lost sight of the fact, or maybe they just don’t care, that there are always going to be consequences. Their need to impose their socialist ideology upon an entire nation, is not going to end well, no matter how hard, or how long they reject the truth of their actions. Denial in this situation will not change the final outcome, and neither will pretence. The Socialist Democrats created this situation, and there is no doubt in anyone’ mind, except their own perhaps, that they own it.

  8. miltary thats sworn into oath to defend constitution that stood for liberty as we knew it will now stand for
    socialism under one partys scheme to undo this country as we knew it, will they now be unobliged to honor that oath since it wii now longer be a republic for the people but by the socialist democrats

  9. All comments are pretty much right on but you have to remember these so called media sites are guided by the ccp of communist china where do you think they got the idea of suppression of free speach

  10. ‘BIDEN IS A WORN OUT OLD SENILE PUKE LIKE ME…. HE HAS NO BUSINESS BEING THE PRES…MARK MY WORD HARD TIMES ARE COMING TO AMERICA….HE WILL BE LUCKY TO LAST 3 MONTHS IN THIS SPOT THEN THE GRINNING LADY OF COLOR….PRAY……
    I WONDER IF ANYONE READS OUR COMMENTS.. IT’S A GOOD WAY TO VENT……

  11. Twitter and Facebook are selective in how they enforce their rules and regulations. They suspend one account while another account says the same thing and no suspension. I’ve removed my account from both platforms.
