Facebook Censors Conservative Sky Is Blue

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.

Dave Rubin Berated on Social Media for Claiming ‘Free Markets’ Will Stop Big Tech Tyranny

Nobody is buying what Rubin’s selling anymore.

Left-libertarian pundit Dave Rubin is getting hammered on social media by conservatives offended by his notion that the “free market” will somehow end Big Tech tyranny without government intervention.

Rubin disagreed with President Trump’s call for action to reign in Big Tech as they commit Orwellian censorship and attempt to meddle in electoral politics.

Rubin’s tweet caused many people to point out how his ideology is a failure and does nothing to actually preserve freedom of speech in any tangible sense.

“Man Dave…seems like years of gatekeeping and sucking up to Susan at YouTube has made the entire internet hate your guts,” wrote Twitter user @terrorsperg.

“How long until big tech controls every aspect of our life? We going to just let them destroy us in the name of “free markets?” There is a serious discussion to be had here about whether they are publisher or platform,” twitter user @MadManCris49 wrote.

“Conservatives are going to be “noble losers” until the end of time unless they actually start fighting fire with fire,” wrote Twitter user @tdschwinn.

“There is no Free Market is Social Media anymore. It’s a dictatorship that uses Repressive Tolerance to justify telling only one narrative,” wrote user @jamft in a tweet. “Twitter is no longer a platform, it has become a publisher and a gatekeeper.”

“This is not regulating them. This is taking away monetary and legal privilege they receive by claiming to be merely a “public platform.” They, if indeed they ever were, have ceased to be such and should lose that privilege,” wrote Twitter user @ChiefScribe.

“Competition doesn’t exist. Competitors can’t even get a mobile app because Apple and Google won’t allow it. Its a monopoly,” Twitter user @steph93065 wrote in another response.

Rubin is acting like his so-called competitor to Twitter, Locals.com, is free market competition that will reign in the social media giants without government interference.

However, banished journalist and Congressional candidate Laura Loomer pointed out that Rubin’s platform subscribes to all of the same rules as the tech giants and does not really promote freedom of speech.

“I find it really bizarre how Dave Rubin is going around telling people that his new social media site is anti censorship when it’s been designed to keep deplatformed people off and also utilizes the same content moderation tools as Twitter,” she wrote in a Telegram post.

“How do you have a social media site created to supposedly combat censorship and then not invite anyone who has actually been deplatformed onto the site? How can you claim to not have “behind the scenes censorship” when you let people “control who can and can’t post”?” Loomer asked.

Loomer urges patriots who oppose Big Tech censorship to join Parler, a social media entity that refuses to bow to Big Tech’s arbitrary rules and allows unpersoned individuals to speak freely on their platform.

“It is very dishonest for this new site to be advertised as a solution to censorship,” Loomer wrote of Rubin’s social media scam site. “I believe that’s what you call false advertising.”

Rubin’s half-baked weak libertarianism is not selling like it did several years ago. The homosexual former leftist “Young Turks” collaborator is showing signs that he may be controlled opposition for the globalist establishment.
