Facebook Protest Shareholder Meeting

A California activist organization is planning a mass protest during Facebook’s annual shareholder meeting, citing the rampant censorship of conservative voices on its platforms.

Take California Back and California Rising appear to be behind the protest, scheduled for May 30, that will coincide with Facebook’s annual shareholder meeting. The protest has been plugged by Michelle Malkin, who was recently censored by Twitter for speaking out against censorship.

The activists invite Californians to “Come support the #1A and stand united in support of our fellow Patriots that have been Censored and Banned,” and to “Join the protest against the blatant Social Media Censorship,” on May 30 in Menlo Park, California.

Facebook has grown increasingly hostile to conservative voices over the last several months, making the landmark decision at the beginning of May to ban Alex Jones, Paul Joseph Watson, Laura Loomer, and Milo Yiannopoulos from both Facebook and Instagram in one mass censorship campaign.

Big League Politics later revealed that the big tech platform may also ban users for simply sharing videos or links featuring Jones. In the case of Jones, they named him both “dangerous” and a “hate figure” and used his association with Gavin McInnes, who was banned last year, as proof of their claim.

Facebook also refused to explicitly disavow the legally embattled Southern Poverty Law Center even after the organization took credit for the bans, and hired a former Hillary Clinton campaign employee and White House staffer to disseminate the information about Jones’ ban to social media, further illustrating its apparent political bias.

Even worse for the company’s optics, Facebook gave left wing media advanced notice of the early May bans, creating an awkward situation in which the media published articles about the bans hours before the named individuals were purged from Facebook and Instagram.

Recently CrossFit, one of the country’s largest exercise and nutrition programs, made the decision to boycott Facebook after one of its affiliate Facebook groups was banned without explanation.

Former Google, Amazon Operative Slated to Lead Biden DOJ Antitrust Division

Putting the fox in charge of the hen house.

The Biden administration is actively considering a career operative of Google and Amazon to lead the Department of Justice antitrust division, The Intercept reported on Friday.

Renata Hesse previously worked in the DOJ’s Antitrust Division during the Obama administration.

Hesse advertises working with Amazon as an attorney to help the megacorporation avoid liability for trust monopoly action.

Hesse acted as counsel for Google during 2018 Federal Trade Commission hearings, arguing that Google maintains its monopoly share of the market for search engine queries on the basis of its product alone. Hesse ignored Google’s anti-competitive practices, such as shutting out competitors from search results.

Hesse would presumably oversee the DOJ’s Antitrust Division as it proceeds with historic antitrust litigation against Google. The corporate attorney would presumably be pressured to recuse from the case, unless she’s determined to deliver a favorable outcome for her former clients regardless of existing antitrust law.

At least one other lawyer who has litigated cases against Facebook and Google is under consideration for the Antitrust division.

The Antitrust Division of the DOJ is intended to hold America’s most powerful and unaccountable corporations responsible. Hesse has actively fought against such outcomes for years as a Silicon Valley-aligned attorney. Her appointment as antitrust attorney of the DOJ would indicate that Biden intends to pursue a union of the federal government with Big Tech and America’s most powerful oligarchs.
