A conservative U.S. Marine Infantryman was suspended by Facebook for joking about the big tech platform’s propensity to ban conservative users, joking that he could be suspended or banned for simply saying the sky was blue.
Greg Aselbekian, a conservative Marine, was suspended by Facebook after joking about the platform’s eagerness to censor conservative voices.
“Facebook will censor a conservative no matter what,” wrote Aselbekian. “They’ll probably remove my post for saying the sky is blue. Ready? Watch this!”
He then wrote, “The sky is blue!”
Facebook apparently sought to prove Aselbekian’s point, and removed the post then notified Aselbekian that it was removed because it “looked like spam” to the big tech platform.
Aselbekian provided Big League Politics with several more ludicrous examples of Facebook censorship.
In one post, Aselbekian informed his friends and family that his next deployment date would prevent him from attending a Turning Point: USA event, but noted that he would likely be able to attend the annual CPAC and invited users to make plans to meet him there. This post was also considered spam.
In another post, Aselbekian, himself a Marine, bemoaned the desire of leftists to see transgendered individuals in the military, calling it “mental illness.” This appears to have been considered hate speech by the big tech platform, which said it was removed for “attacking people” based on their “gender or disability.”
Another post was removed with no clear reason, except that he referred to Mark Zuckerberg as “Cuckerberg” and referred to Facebook employees as having “made up genders.”
These absurd and often comical examples of censorship come after Facebook banned several prominent conservatives earlier this month, including Alex Jones, Paul Joseph Watson, Milo Yiannopoulos, and Laura Loomer. In the case of Jones, Facebook took the additional step of pledging to consider banning any user who posts links or videos containing Jones on the platform.

Twitter Preparing New ‘Warning’ Labels for Content Labeled ‘Harmfully Misleading’
The Masters of the Universe will decide truth and lies for you.
Twitter is reportedly testing new technology that will label content the platform arbitrarily decides to be ‘harmfully misleading,’ according to reporting from NBC on Thursday.
The platform will affix “brightly colored labels” beneath content, providing users with rebuttals to tweets.
Imagery of the new feature has already been released, showing political rebuttals to claims made by prominent politicians such as Bernie Sanders and Kevin McCarthy.
The rebuttal content to supposed misleading tweets is going to be curated by a team of verified fact-checkers and journalists. Considering the track record of some of Twitter’s most infamous blue checks, it’s going to be hard to take them seriously as supposed objective arbiters of truth.
“We’re exploring a number of ways to address misinformation and provide more context for tweets on Twitter,” a Twitter spokesperson told NBC. “Misinformation is a critical issue and we will be testing many different ways to address it.”
The feature is apparently based on community feedback, and Twitter claims it will function similarly to other community-based moderation programs seen on platforms such as Wikipedia or Reddit.
Gone are the days when it was up to users of the internet and social media themselves to form their own opinion of what is truthful and what is dishonest. The San Francisco tech company is claiming a flood of supposed misinformation requires them to take action in advance of the 2020 Presidential election.
Unfortunately, it appears the community-based points system will be all too easily gamed for leftists to shut down right-leaning points of view. Twitter has little to no credibility to be enforcing politically neutral rules on their platform.
NBC’s report on the new feature states that the slanted program is set to be unveiled on Twitter around March 5th.
