Facebook will now penalize Facebook groups if individual users post news articles, videos, or images the platform considers “false news.”
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.”

“God Emperor Trump: Official” uses an all volunteer group of moderators to police its content and ensure it follows Facebook’s community standards. The platform now expects this volunteer group of conservatives to independently research and vet the truthfulness of every post in the group, a superhuman feat the multi billion dollar platform itself has trouble doing effectively.
This also raises concerns about satire. News checkers have repeatedly fact checked articles by Babylon Bee, a Christian satire website, branding them as “fake news” for their satirical content.
In 2018, fact checkers called a satire article from Babylon Bee claiming that CNN purchased an industrial sized washing machine to spin the news before publication “fake news.” They did the same with a satire article suggesting Planned Parenthood defended Bill Cosby because sexual assault was “only 4%” of what he does.
This year fact checkers felt the need to declare another Babylon Bee article claiming CNN hired hoaxer Jussie Smollett after he formed a story out of thin air “fake news.”
All of these satire articles, when posted to Facebook, now come with a disclaimer showing they are not real news.
The development raises the questions: Should volunteer moderators for “God Emperor Trump: Official” prohibit group members from posting satire articles? Are satirical memes safe?
This also raises concerns about potential abuse. It is now entirely possible for radical leftists to infiltrate conservative Facebook groups and purposely post fake news articles to destroy the group.
If taken to its furthest logical conclusion, perhaps moderators should only allow only articles from CNN, MSNBC, and Fox News in the conservative group to be safe.
Facebook’s new enforcement measure seems to be another thinly veiled attempt to censor conservatives by holding them to unreasonable standards, and offering no clarification about what is acceptable and what the volunteer moderators should censor.
Twitter Censors President Trump’s Tweet about Restoring Law and Order in the Minneapolis Streets
Big Brother wants the riots to continue.
Twitter is censoring a post from President Donald Trump on their platform warning that individuals in the streets of Minneapolis, Minn. who loot property will be shot.
“This Tweet violated the Twitter Rules about glorifying violence. However, Twitter has determined that it may be in the public’s interest for the Tweet to remain accessible,” the platform claims.
“These THUGS are dishonoring the memory of George Floyd, and I won’t let that happen. Just spoke to Governor Tim Walz and told him that the Military is with him all the way. Any difficulty and we will assume control but, when the looting starts, the shooting starts. Thank you!” Trump’s censored tweet reads.
The post is also censored on the official Twitter page of the White House:

After days of rioting and looting in Minneapolis, the violence is spreading across the country.
In Columbus, Oh., rioters have descended upon the state Capitol:
According to the Columbus Dispatch, 300 protesters blocked the intersections and there was a heavy police presence in downtown Columbus.
The protests were originally calm, but became disorderly late on the night of March 28, according to reports. WCMH Channel 4 reporter Eric Halperin reported that protesters started smashing windows at the Statehouse downtown and some were able to break inside the building. Halperin reported that law enforcement moved in to protect the Statehouse.
Rioters threw plastic bottles and other small objects at police officers earlier in the evening. Throughout the demonstration, protesters chanted “Black lives matter” and “Say his name”, referring to Floyd. The demonstrators also chanted “I can’t breathe,” which was a reference to Eric Garner’s death in New York back in 2014.
Seven people were shot in Louisville, Ky. as rioters targeted a police car due to their anti-civilizational rage:
Seven people were shot at an anti-police protest in Louisville, Kentucky, on Thursday night, just moments after riotous protestors were seen trying to flip over a police transport vehicle.
A sizable crowd of protestors were trying to flip over what looks to be a police detention car.
Remarkably, the local news reporter covering the raucous event describes the protest as “peacefully” as protestors clearly endanger others in their vicinity, those in the vehicle, and themselves by aggressively shaking a sizable police detention vehicle. The paddy wagon could have easily crushed someone inside or outside if it were toppled on its side.
As of early Friday morning, it’s still unclear who fired the shots during the scrum, with several Louisville police officers claiming that their weapons were unfired. At least one of the individuals who was shot is reported to be in critical condition, and the crowd quickly dispersed shortly after shots were fired.
The scenes from Minneapolis look like something out of a third-world sh*thole like Somalia:

Which, of course, has made Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) and her daughter very happy:
Our anger is just.
Our anger is warranted.
And our priority right now must be protecting one another.

President Trump is showing why he was elected as the law-and-order candidate, as he attempts to put down these riots that are causing senseless property destruction while the far-left cheers them on.
