Facebook is now punishing groups on its platform that question the impact of human activity on climate change.
The Facebook group “God Emperor Trump: (Official)” received notification on Monday that members of their group had posted content that is rated false by the platform’s chosen fact checkers, something that Big League Politics revealed the platform will use to demolish the group’s frequency on the news feed, prevent potential new members from being shown the group, and otherwise reduce its engagement and growth.
The content Facebook claimed was inaccurate was a video featuring the famous businessman and public speaker Dan Pena, who says that the extent of man’s impact on climate change is overblown because the business world does not even acknowledge it as a fact.
According to Pena, if the world was set to be submerged due to impacts of human caused global warming in as soon as 12 years, there would be no investment in coastal areas like Florida, which would certainly sink, and that climate change is highly cyclical and it is naive to assume humans have such a large impact on the planet.
The article Facebook used to fact check the claim hardly demolishes Pena’s point, but rather says he may be inaccurate.
Factually Inaccurate: The speaker likely means to refer to a climate period known as the Eemian, but this was about 125,000 years ago, not 55,000 years ago. The slow-changing cycles of Earth’s orbit were in a different configuration then, leading to warmer temperatures.
Flawed Reasoning : The existence of past climate changes does not indicate humans cannot change climate today any more than the existence of natural fires in the past would indicate arson is impossible today.
At this point Facebook not only requires that volunteer moderators determine the veracity of news, but also that they become well read on the intricacies of climate science and use this knowledge to police opinions and content.
This campaign against so-called “false news” in groups has been happening for some time, and could be easily weaponized. If users were to gain access to partisan Facebook groups from the other side of the aisle, they could easily use this feature to post blatantly fake news in an effort to decrease the engagement and reach of groups.
Big League Politics reported in April:
After a user in the Facebook group “God Emperor Trump: Official” posted an article the website considers fake, admins of the group were given a notification that their entire group could be penalized if the behavior is repeated.
According to Facebook’s message, the platform will use its endless fight against “false news” as an excuse to “push all of that group’s content down in News Feed, which may mean fewer people visit the group.”
The platform “may also stop suggesting that people join the group.”
This latest move to prohibit users from questioning the controversial topic of climate change comes shortly after the big tech platform purged Alex Jones, Paul Joseph Watson, Milo Yiannopoulos, and Laura Loomer from both Facebook and Instagram, going as far as to prohibit users from sharing links or videos featuring Jones under threat of a potential ban.
Department of Justice Sues Facebook for Discrimination Against Americans in Favor of H1B Visa Workers
Facebook discriminated against Americans.
The Department of Justice filed a new lawsuit against Big Tech monopoly Facebook for engaging in pervasive and systemic discrimination against American workers, refusing to consider them for company positions and instead shepherding cheaper and more compliant foreign visa workers into more than 2,500 of the company’s high-paying jobs.
The Department of Justice alleges that Facebook created a category of employment offerings in which none or one American worker applied more than 99% of the time, and were almost never hired. Facebook didn’t advertise job opening it restricted to the “PERM” process on its careers website, instead exclusively recruiting visa workers.
“According to the lawsuit, and based on the department’s nearly two-year investigation, Facebook intentionally created a hiring system in which it denied qualified U.S. workers a fair opportunity to learn about and apply for jobs that Facebook instead sought to channel to temporary visa holders Facebook wanted to sponsor for green cards.”
The H-1B visa program is favorite of Big Tech, creating a class of employees who function as de facto indentured servants. H-1B workers are reliant on their employers for eventual American green cards, and leaving their jobs jeopardizes their immigration status. Some technology companies have been subject to large settlements for exploiting their bonded H-1B worker force.
“The Department of Justice’s lawsuit alleges that Facebook engaged in intentional and widespread violations of the law, by setting aside positions for temporary visa holders instead of considering interested and qualified U.S. workers,” said Assistant Attorney General Eric S. Dreiband of the Civil Rights Division.
“This lawsuit follows a nearly two-year investigation into Facebook’s practices and a ‘reasonable cause’ determination by the Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division. Our message to workers is clear: if companies deny employment opportunities by illegally preferring temporary visa holders, the Department of Justice will hold them accountable. Our message to all employers — including those in the technology sector — is clear: you cannot illegally prefer to recruit, consider, or hire temporary visa holders over U.S. workers.”
The Department of Justice will seek civil penalties from Facebook on behalf of American workers discriminated against in the employment process, describing Facebook’s “discrimination against U.S. workers [as] intentional, widespread, and in violation” of immigration law.
Facebook has lobbied heavily in favor of raising annual visa workers levels, most recently boosting Senator Mike Lee’s proposal to remove per-country caps on H-1B visas. This will result in nearly all H-1B visas being given to nationals of a few large countries, such as India. Senator Lee succeeded in passing the migrant labor giveaway to Big Tech through the Senate on Wednesday.
