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.

EXPOSED: Big Tech’s Censorship Czars are Veteran Democratic Operatives, Section 230 Must Go!

The fix is in against conservative voices.

The communications directors at many Big Tech entities – including Twitter, Facebook, and Snapchat – have been revealed as veteran Democrat Party operatives.

Journalist Robby Starbuck made the troubling allegations in a social media post on Wednesday:

Much of what is posted by Starbuck holds up to journalistic scrutiny. Twitter communications director Nick Pacillo once worked as a spokesman for Democrat vice presidential nominee Kamala Harris while she was California attorney general. It has been alleged that he continues to serve her in his privileged role with Twitter, as supporters of Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) believe the platform blocked donations for their preferred presidential candidate while he was running against Harris.

Meanwhile Andy Stone – who serves as Facebook’s Policy Communications Director – has been working in various capacities to assure Democrat victory for over a decade. He was celebrated for his career of service to the Democrats when he joined their House Majority PAC in 2012.

“We are thrilled to have Andy on board,” the political action committee’s executive director, Ali Lapp, said in a statement at the time. “Andy brings many assets to House Majority PAC — his understanding of the House, experience in California — one of our most important states in 2012 — and he knows firsthand what it’s like to be fighting for progressive principles and policies every day.”

“I am excited to join House Majority PAC,” Stone said about his servitude to the Democrat Party. “I look forward to working with this talented team to hold Republicans accountable for their extreme and out of touch policies — and to help win back the House.”

Laura Nichols, who works as vice president of communications for Snapchat, appears to have the longest record of paid Democrat advocacy, going back many decades.

Axios noted in their profile of Nichols that she worked as an adviser, strategist, and spokesperson for former House Leader Dick Gephardt for eight years. Gephardt was a Democrat lawmaker for 1977 to 2005, considered to be among the standard bearers of the party for a generation, running for the Democrat presidential nomination unsuccessfully in 1988 and 2004.

Additionally, she served as the SVP of communications and strategy at the Center for American Progress (CAP). The CAP is an organization that was founded by pizza-loving Hillary confidant John Podesta and forms the intellectual backbone for the Democrat Party.

Big League Politics has reported about how Big Tech is ramping up the Orwellian Nightmare as part of a coordinated left-wing conspiracy to influence the election results in November:

The social media giant Twitter is targeting Bitchute, the alternative video service that allows for content to be shared freely on the platform, with Draconian censorship…

This may have been done at the behest of ANTIFA-style organization, Hope Not Hate, which lobbies Big Tech to censor their political enemies.

“Major social media platforms including Facebook and Twitter should ban the sharing of Bitchute links on their platform, thereby significantly reducing the impact of this extreme and dangerous material,” Hope Not Hate wrote in their blog about Bitchute.

In addition to calling for Draconian censorship against Bitchute on social media platforms, they also call for Bitchute to be slapped with criminal repercussions for permitting free speech on their platform.

“Law enforcement investigate Bitchute for distribution of content that breaks British law, including terrorism legislation,” Hope Not Hate wrote. “The Government should introduce an Online Harms Bill that includes meaningful consequences for bespoke platforms such as Bitchute that host, promote or distribute terrorism, extremist and hateful content.”

Bitchute has grown in influence for hosting videos that have been driven off of major platforms. A viral video of front-line doctors urging for the use of hydroxychloroquine to treat COVID-19 was scrubbed from YouTube but can still be accessed on Bitchute.

Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act must be scrapped so Big Tech is no longer granted special privileges that allow them to maintain monopoly status while acting as a hostile partisan publisher.
