Facebook — Block Zuckerberg’s Snitch Bots
Internet censorship is on the rise, take a step to help keep our platforms free.
The social media giants are implementing community standards for their platforms that are biased. They claim neutrality, but even a superficial investigation shows them to be anything but neutral. Unless you’ve been living under a rock, censorship is alive and growing on social media platforms and search engines.
This isn’t a left vs right, conservative vs liberal, or Democrat vs Republican issue. It concerns us all. As we learned in World War II from by the German Lutheran pastor Martin Niemöller
First they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out-
Because I was not a socialist.
Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out-
Because I was not a trade unionist.
Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out-
Because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for me — and there was no one left to speak for me.
Let's take that lesson to heart.
Last week, Candace Owen’s twitter account was suspended for a tweet criticizing Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s (D) governmental overreach and encouraging residents to stand up for their constitutional rights. Even Twitter can not explain which rule she broke to justify their suspension of her account. (source)
It must be mentioned that Dr. Robert Epstein the researcher who blew the whistle on Google is a democrat and a Hillary Clinton supporter. His research proved that prior to the 2016 election Google’s search engine bias “shifted between 2.6 and 10.4 million votes for Hillary Clinton without anyone knowing this occurred.” (source) Robert Epstein did not find this manipulation bias in either Bing or Yahoo Search Engines.
During testimony before Congress, Dr. Epstein confirmed that the 2.6 million votes swayed toward Hillary Clinton were a rock bottom number. It was more likely much greater. (Source) In answering why he came forward with this information, being a Democrat and strong Hillary supporter, he said, “I believe in democracy, I believe in free and fair elections more than I have any allegiance to a candidate or party.”
YouTube’s CEO Susan Wojcicki stated that the platform will ban any video that’s suggested content goes against the World Health Organization (WHO) guidance on the coronavirus (source). This is interesting as the WHO has been a dismal failure from the beginning of the coronavirus and continues on till today.
YouTube has been removing videos of doctors such as Daniel W. Erickson and Dr. Artin Massihi that disagree with the government’s overreach imposed upon our citizens. There video had over 5 million of views before YouTube took them down.
The YouTube’s gatekeepers protecting us from its perceived “misinformation” and bad ideas is counterproductive and may lead to more serious errors. If the claims of these physicians are wrong, we will find out through investigation of those claims, and certainly not by censorship.
If the history of science teaches us one thing, is that the preveiling science is usually found out to be wrong. Examples of which are; man will never fly, it is impossible to travel faster than sound, we will never send a man to the moon. The list is infinite.
Sorry YouTube I neither need you or want you as my Nanny. The only good thing that could come from this is another platform similar to YouTube making it to market, but without the censorship.
Facebook has a long history of left-wing bias and conservative censorship. In 2018 it banned Rev. Franklin Graham for a post, it found 2 years prior that disagreed with Facebook’s stance on sexual orientation. As it turned, there was nothing wrong with Rev. Graham’s post and FB later reversed itself and apologized to Rev. Graham for its error. But this clearly demonstrates Facebook’s knee jerk reaction to anyone viewed as conservative.
Around the Fourth of July, Facebook censored a post for being “hate speech”. Well, that hate speech turned out to be the United State’s “Declaration of Independence”.
As a private company it can create its own community standards, however, this is not what Mark Zuckerber told Congress when he stated that “Facebook is a platform for all ideas.”
In Zuckerberg’s “Blueprint for Content Governance” he states that the platform was instituting more content controls that would limit what can be seen “even if it doesn’t actually violate our standards”. In other words, if they don’t like what you say, they’ll limit the distribution, called shadow banning.
Conservative groups that support pro-guns, pro-life or are just plain pro-conservative run into problems with Facebook’s hate speech censors. But, radical left-wing groups like Smash Racism DC, the Antifa group that threatened the conservative fox news host Tucker Calrson’s home and his wife has no problem with Facebook censors.
Facebook will decide what you can see and believe.
Facebook in April 2020 announced that it will start warning Facebook users if they like or reacted to coronavirus news that Facebook has determined is incorrect. The platform has already removed hundreds of posts. As the system continues to gain traction, Facebook users can expect to be warned from a Zuckerberg bot if you had the audacity to react, like or comment on a coronavirus post Facebook thinks is not factually accurate, baised on their biased fact checkers of course.
Kill The Snitch Bots
Ready to take a stand to get a little more freedom back into your Facebook life? Here are the instructions to remove post reporting and tracking bots from your Facebook account.
1 Go To Your Facebook Settings
2 In Settings Select Blocking
3 In Blocking type in “fact check”
4 Select Bot from list and hit Block.
5 Block the Bot
After you have blocked all the bots for “fact check”, go back and redo it again typing in “fact checker” and block those bots as well. You can only block one bot at a time. If for whatever reason you want to reactivate the bot you can do so in 48 hours.
Fact checking in and of itself is not a bad thing. But if the fact checker is biased, that’s another story. From the biases I already noted from silicon valley, their fact checkers are far from neutral.
By blocking these bots they can no longer “report” on your Facebook activity. Whether these bots are reporting your political views to sway elections, such as the political party in favor gets a “Get Out To Vote” reminder, while the other political party receives nothing. Or tracking your interests to sell to marketers for ads to show up on your Facebook feed.
