Facebook Bans Michigan’s Top Anti-Quarantine Group Following a Snitching Campaign by the Fake News

This is how Big Brother operates.

The top organizing group putting together anti-quarantine protests in Michigan has been removed from Facebook after a snitching campaign from the fake news media targeted the group.

The Michigan United for Liberty (MUFL) group was removed from the social media platform after the Metro Times tattled on the group because of messages posted in there that offended state Governor Gretchen Whitmer.

“On Sunday, after being contacted by Metro Times, Facebook removed one of the groups, Michigan United for Liberty, and deleted posts on others for violating the company’s policy against inciting violence. Facebook announced last month that it will remove groups and events that encourage people to defy social-distancing measures. Facebook also is investigating the other groups,” the publication wrote in their blog promoting Orwellian censorship on social media.

Facebook, which has a vested interest in stopping resistance to coronavirus lockdown policies, was happy to comply with the censorship request from the fake news outlet.

“We removed one group for violating our policies and will remove any other violations as we continue our review,“ a Facebook spokesperson said to the Metro Times.

Jennifer Darling, the founder of MUFL, explained to Big League Politics that the fake news outlet has completely lost their readership in recent years so they must collude with Big Brother in a last ditch attempt to stay afloat.

“The Metro Times, having lost its audience and ad money due to Governor Whitmer banning all nightlife, has responded to its imminent demise in one last show of hatred and lies,” Darling said.

“As much as we are happy to see these peddlers of fear and loathing go out of business, for the sake of all hard-working Michiganders we will continue to demand the immoral and illegal executive orders be overturned immediately,” she added.

The Detroit-area newspaper has to lay several workers off recently because nobody wants to pick up their phony rag any longer, particularly in the age of coronavirus hysteria.

“Since a majority of our advertisers are ceasing operation as quarantine measures go into effect, we simply don’t have a path forward with our full staff. Remaining employees across the company are taking a pay cut and covering multiple roles for the time being,” the Metro Times wrote in a press release back in March.

Despite the Orwellian collusion to stop the protest group on Facebook, the MUFL still intends to hold their “Judgment Day” rally on Thursday, May 14 at the State Capitol in Lansing from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. After the last several rallies made international headlines, the organization hopes that this one will be the biggest one yet.

YOUR NEW MASTER: Twitter’s Head of Conversational Safety, a “Young, Queer Asian-American Businesswoman,” is “Rethinking” the Concept of User Safety

Do you trust someone like her to make Twitter “a safer place”?

Published

on

The media company Protocol, a sister site of Politico, recently published an article about Twitter’s new “head of product for conversational safety,” Christine Su. It claims that Su, a “young, queer Asian-American businesswoman,” is revolutionizing what “user safety” on social media means.

Twitter hired Su around six months ago to be in charge of “what might be the most difficult task on Twitter,” despite having no apparent experience in politics, programming, and media relations. But Twitter seems to like her for her “creative” and “somewhat radical new ideas” about user safety.

“As a queer woman of color who is an Asian American in tech in rural America, that experience is a very intersectional one. I’ve had plenty of experiences moving through spaces where I wanted more safety,” Su said.

Protocol writes that Su’s vision incorporates “transformative and procedural justice.” Transformative justice ostensibly refers to a non-retributive form of repairing harm done to someone and preventing it from happening again; procedural justice to enacting a set of rules that “make harm rarer in the first place.”

This all sounds nice and dandy—but beware. So-called transformative and procedural justice will not benefit you, but will crush you. Anything that’s perceived as “harmful” against “women and people from marginalized groups” can and will be used to censor you. Christine Su may reassuringly claim that “the point is not to make the entire world a safe space,” but she’s open about the fact that she will help give the Coalition of the Fringes more control over what people are allowed to do and say on Twitter.

Examples from the article:

  • Creating an audio hangout feature called “Spaces,” which will allow users to determine who is allowed to participate, as well as who can speak and when. (Note that it’s being tested on “women and marginalized groups of people” first.)
  • Potentially doubling down on functions that “encourage people to read content before reposting it.” (Which is exclusively done to censor or limit the reach of conservative and other right-wing content.)
  • Building tools that “create private pathways for apologies, forgiveness and deescalation.” (The finer details are still a work in progress according to Su.)
  • Defining what a “meaningful conversation” is. (Would people like Su think that anything right-wingers say or believe belongs in a “meaningful conversation”? Let’s just say I wouldn’t bet money on it…)

You know full well that a company like Facebook would shortly follow suit. After all, it’s not just Twitter that Su is “revolutionizing,” but the concept of social media itself. Figure out where all this is heading.
