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.

‘Non-Profit’ Funded by Soros and Big Tech Files Lawsuit to Stop President Trump’s Anti-Censorship Order

The Center for Democracy and Technology is a globalist front group.

A non-profit organization funded by Big Tech has filed a lawsuit to protect the right for their corporate backers to commit acts of Draconian censorship on various digital platforms.

The Center for Democracy and Technology (CDT) claims that President Trump’s recent executive order against tech censorship violates the rights of some of the most powerful government-connected multinationals in the world, who are protected under the 1st Amendment to crush the free speech of the peasants.

“The Executive Order is designed to deter social media services from fighting misinformation, voter suppression, and the stoking of violence on their platforms,” said Alexandra Givens, who works as leader of CDT.

“Courts have recognized that retaliatory conduct chills a person or entity from exercising their First Amendment rights in the future,” the lawsuit states. “President Trump—by publicly attacking Twitter and issuing the Order—sought to chill future online speech by other speakers.”

It should come as no surprise that the CDT opposes Trump’s order meant to protect digital freedom of speech. They are funded by some of the most powerful tech monopolies and oligarchs throughout the world.

In the financials section of their official website, they list Amazon, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Chan Zuckerberg Initiative DAF, Facebook, Google, and Microsoft as organizations that have given them donations of at least $200,000 in 2019.

Entities that gave the CDT over $100,000 last year include Apple, Verizon, the Ford Foundation, the Soros-backed Open Society Foundations, Verizon, and Walmart. Other prominent donors include Comcast, Twitter, Mozilla, AT&T, the Charles Koch Foundation, Lyft, Uber, Visa, Exxon Mobil, Netflix, JPMorgan Chase, Mastercard, Perkins Coie, Disney, Starbucks, and Sprint.

In short, CDT is bankrolled by an array of the most powerful globalists in the world. Virtually all of the major Big Tech entities give them oodles of cash on an annual basis, so the CDT acts as their prostitute so to speak. This is why they are trying to undermine common sense measures that would restrict Big Tech’s ability to censor and manipulate the political process.

Big League Politics reported on Trump’s landmark executive order against Big Tech censorship when it was signed last week:

President Donald Trump signed an executive order regarding social media regulation today after Twitter hit one of his posts with a so-called fact check from the fake news.

“What they choose to fact check and what they choose to ignore or even promote is nothing more than a political activism group… And it’s inappropriate,” Trump said at a press conference before signing the executive order.

“This censorship and bias is a threat to freedom itself. Imagine if your phone company silenced or edited your conversation. Social media companies have vastly more power and more reach than any phone company in the United States,” Trump added.

The president described his executive order as a measure to “protect and uphold the free speech and rights of the American people.” He blasted social media corporations for abusing their special privileges under Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act (CDA), which shields them from liabilities for content posted on their vast platforms.

He claims his executive order will revoke Section 230 protections for tech giants that capriciously censor content to push a partisan political agenda, and empower the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) to crack down on fraudulent or deceptive practices by tech corporations.

“What they’re doing is tantamount to monopoly, you can say. It’s tantamount to taking over the airwaves. Can’t let it happen, otherwise we are not going to have a democracy. We’re not going to have anything to do with a Republic,” Trump explained.

Lobbying groups that launder Big Tech cash to manipulate the court systems like the CDT will try to undo Trump’s great progress on behalf digital freedom of expression. Many more lawsuits against the executive order are expected to follow the one filed by the CDT.
