Censorship: Facebook ‘Mistake’ Caused 99.999% Drop in PragerU Traffic

Published

on

Facebook has apologized to a conservative non-profit after a “mistake” caused the group’s page to lose 99.999 percent of its engagements, according to Breitbart.

“The videos in question were mistakenly removed,” Facebook said in a statement. “While we continue to research what caused this error, we have restored the content because it does not break our Community Standards and apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.”

Several PragerU videos were flagged as “hate speech” and removed, including a video on masculinity. PragerU is known for posting short educational videos that teach the fundamentals of conservatism, among other right-leaning topics.

While Facebook was investigating what caused the “mistake,” PragerU Chief Marketing Officer blasted the tech giant.

“This is very troubling behavior from the world’s largest social network,” Stazzerri said. “Not only are they obviously ratcheting up their algorithms to target mainstream, conservative content and labeling it as hate speech, but they are now completely blocking our posts from public view. This is shocking and it should deeply concern every single American.”

PragerU has filed a lawsuit against Google, which owns YouTube, for similar de-platforming.

The organization posted a tweet on Friday showing literally zero engagements, though the page has 3 million followers.

“Our last 9 posts are reaching 0 of our 3 million followers. At least two videos were deleted last night for “hate speech,” the post said. “SHARE to spread awareness about big tech censorship!”

Facebook replied saying the censorship was a mistake.

PragerU proceeded to blast Facebook for the obvious lie.

“Removing two videos, marking them as “hate speech” and then subsequently censoring over 15 of our following posts to reach 0 of our 3 million followers is not a mistake. It’s deliberate censorship of conservative ideas,” the group said.

Silicon Valley has come under fire for the past two weeks for banning prominent conservatives from using their platforms.

Conservative radio show host Alex Jones was banned from Apple, Facebook, YouTube and Spotify in one day. Later, British free speech activist Tommy Robinson was banned from Instagram and co-founder of VICE Media Gavin McInnes was banned from Twitter.

Big League Politics contributor Laura Loomer was also temporarily suspended from Facebook.

EXPOSED: Big Tech’s Censorship Czars are Veteran Democratic Operatives, Section 230 Must Go!

The fix is in against conservative voices.

The communications directors at many Big Tech entities – including Twitter, Facebook, and Snapchat – have been revealed as veteran Democrat Party operatives.

Journalist Robby Starbuck made the troubling allegations in a social media post on Wednesday:

Much of what is posted by Starbuck holds up to journalistic scrutiny. Twitter communications director Nick Pacillo once worked as a spokesman for Democrat vice presidential nominee Kamala Harris while she was California attorney general. It has been alleged that he continues to serve her in his privileged role with Twitter, as supporters of Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) believe the platform blocked donations for their preferred presidential candidate while he was running against Harris.

Meanwhile Andy Stone – who serves as Facebook’s Policy Communications Director – has been working in various capacities to assure Democrat victory for over a decade. He was celebrated for his career of service to the Democrats when he joined their House Majority PAC in 2012.

“We are thrilled to have Andy on board,” the political action committee’s executive director, Ali Lapp, said in a statement at the time. “Andy brings many assets to House Majority PAC — his understanding of the House, experience in California — one of our most important states in 2012 — and he knows firsthand what it’s like to be fighting for progressive principles and policies every day.”

“I am excited to join House Majority PAC,” Stone said about his servitude to the Democrat Party. “I look forward to working with this talented team to hold Republicans accountable for their extreme and out of touch policies — and to help win back the House.”

Laura Nichols, who works as vice president of communications for Snapchat, appears to have the longest record of paid Democrat advocacy, going back many decades.

Axios noted in their profile of Nichols that she worked as an adviser, strategist, and spokesperson for former House Leader Dick Gephardt for eight years. Gephardt was a Democrat lawmaker for 1977 to 2005, considered to be among the standard bearers of the party for a generation, running for the Democrat presidential nomination unsuccessfully in 1988 and 2004.

Additionally, she served as the SVP of communications and strategy at the Center for American Progress (CAP). The CAP is an organization that was founded by pizza-loving Hillary confidant John Podesta and forms the intellectual backbone for the Democrat Party.

Big League Politics has reported about how Big Tech is ramping up the Orwellian Nightmare as part of a coordinated left-wing conspiracy to influence the election results in November:

The social media giant Twitter is targeting Bitchute, the alternative video service that allows for content to be shared freely on the platform, with Draconian censorship…

This may have been done at the behest of ANTIFA-style organization, Hope Not Hate, which lobbies Big Tech to censor their political enemies.

“Major social media platforms including Facebook and Twitter should ban the sharing of Bitchute links on their platform, thereby significantly reducing the impact of this extreme and dangerous material,” Hope Not Hate wrote in their blog about Bitchute.

In addition to calling for Draconian censorship against Bitchute on social media platforms, they also call for Bitchute to be slapped with criminal repercussions for permitting free speech on their platform.

“Law enforcement investigate Bitchute for distribution of content that breaks British law, including terrorism legislation,” Hope Not Hate wrote. “The Government should introduce an Online Harms Bill that includes meaningful consequences for bespoke platforms such as Bitchute that host, promote or distribute terrorism, extremist and hateful content.”

Bitchute has grown in influence for hosting videos that have been driven off of major platforms. A viral video of front-line doctors urging for the use of hydroxychloroquine to treat COVID-19 was scrubbed from YouTube but can still be accessed on Bitchute.

Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act must be scrapped so Big Tech is no longer granted special privileges that allow them to maintain monopoly status while acting as a hostile partisan publisher.
