Published

A conservative journalist and Big League Politics contributor was banned from Facebook on Sunday in the midst of a purge of prominent right-wing figures by Silicon Valley tech giants.

“Laura Loomer has been unpublished for repeatedly posting things that don’t comply with Facebook Terms,” the site informed Loomer. “Please review Facebook Community Standards to learn more about our policies.”

When fascist tech giants silence users, they never give a concrete reason, only a vague “violation of terms” excuse.

The ban comes on the heels of Loomer being assaulted by a Palestinian congressional candidate from Michigan. Loomer posted the video of the interaction to her Facebook page, and was subsequently banned.

In the past week, radio news giant Alex Jones was banned from YouTube, Apple and Facebook, among smaller platforms like Spotify and Pinterest. British free speech activist Tommy Robinson was then banned from Instagram. Gavin McInnes, co-founder of Vice Media was banned from Twitter.

What do Loomer and the other three purge victims have in common? They are all conservative voices with large platforms.

Many have argued over the past week that tech giants, being private entities, have the right to deny service to anyone they please. Usually this argument works.

But Silicon Valley is a vastly different case. The big four, Apple, Google (YouTube), Facebook, and Twitter have a virtual monopoly on the internet itself, which is the main platform for public discourse in the current year. Not to mention, Silicon Valley is one of the largest lobbyists of bought-and-paid for leftist politicians in Washington, D.C.

Just because the government is not officially silencing conservatives, does not mean they are not complicit.

Either way, corporate fascism is still fascism.

Facebook Mass Censoring Any MENTION of the Word ‘Coronavirus’

Pathetic level of censorship.

Facebook appears to enacting a totally new level of Orwellian censorship, going so far as to mass delete any comment or post with a mere mention of the word ‘coronavirus.’ Some online conservatives brought up the remarkable and reactionary censorship on Monday, expressing surprise that the company would go so far as to silence any mere mention of the disease’s name.

Other Facebook users recounted the exact same experience. It’s unclear if the automated ban on saying ‘coronavirus’ applies throughout the entire platform, or is merely blanketed upon a subsection of users.

The author had a similar experience when posting a comment that merely said the word ‘coronavirus.’

Curiously, the comments merely stating ‘coronavirus’ don’t appear to have been outright deleted from the platform. Instead, they’re rendered invisible to anyone but the individual that posted them, ensuring that Facebook can claim they aren’t deleted, but just as effectively silenced.

The coronavirus epidemic is one of the most significant global events since World War II. But don’t you dare as so much even think as to mention it on Facebook.

For the world’s largest social media network to so callously silence anyone who even dares to mention the name of the disease is reminiscent of some of the most authoritarian censorship practices in history, such as those practiced in the Soviet Union.

It’s hard to think of a practice that could so effectively reveal malfeasance and authoritarianism on the part of Silicon Valley tech elites, but they don’t care. So much as an actual discussion on coronavirus isn’t permitted for the unwashed masses, and is reserved as a privilege for the liberal elites.
