Instagram, Owned by Facebook, Unveils New Big Brother Policies to Combat ‘Online Bullying’

Instagram is ramping up its Orwellian censorship program.

Published

Instagram, the popular social media platform owned by Facebook, unveiled their new Orwellian policies yesterday that will use AI to censor content in real time.

“In the last few days, we started rolling out a new feature powered by AI that notifies people when their comment may be considered offensive before it’s posted,” wrote Adam Mosseri, who works as the Head of Instagram, in a blog.

They hope that this new feature will compel individuals to self-censor any comments that may be considered inappropriate or harmful by the thought controllers.

“This intervention gives people a chance to reflect and undo their comment and prevents the recipient from receiving the harmful comment notification,” he added.

A prompt comes up with the following question when any wrong-think is identified: “Are you sure you want to post this?”

The user is then able to undo the comment with something that is more palatable for the censors from there. This conditioning mechanism is meant to rewire the behavior of dissidents toward the desires of the multinational truth commission.

Instagram is also creating a “Restrict” feature that will allow an individual to post on another person’s profile, but their posts can only be seen by themselves.

“We wanted to create a feature that allows people to control their Instagram experience, without notifying someone who may be targeting them. Soon, we will begin testing a new way to protect your account from unwanted interactions called Restrict,” Mosseri wrote.

“Once you Restrict someone, comments on your posts from that person will only be visible to that person. You can choose to make a restricted person’s comments visible to others by approving their comments,” he added.

The pro-free speech social media alternative, Gab, called Instagram’s policies out for their creepy Orwellian nature.

Instagram will continue forward in perfecting Big Brother censorship on the platform, using combating online bullying as the excuse for their AI crackdown.

“It’s our responsibility to create a safe environment on Instagram. This has been an important priority for us for some time, and we are continuing to invest in better understanding and tackling this problem,” Mossari wrote.

This follows recent revelations that Google is manipulating their AI for the purposes of electoral interference in the 2020 presidential election, an conservative and independence voices are being purged from YouTube, Pinterest is targeting of pro-life content with Draconian censorship, and Twitter is conducting anti-American censorship to target President Trump’s supporters.

Instagram was seen as one of the last redoubts of free thought for conservatives and independents, but Mossari had made it abundantly clear that will no longer be the case.

More Censorship: Controversial Right-Wing YouTuber Nick Fuentes is Booted From Platform, Even Ben Shapiro Says It’s Too Far

Fuentes received the boot after supposed terms of service violations.

Published

Controversial right-wing Youtube personality Nick Fuentes has been booted from the Google-owned platform, as they continue to ramp up their campaign of Orwellian censorship.

“This account has been terminated due to multiple or severe violations of YouTube’s policy prohibiting hate speech,” they announced at the link of Fuentes’ former channel.

Fuentes has come to prominence in recent months as his fans have frequently asked pointed questions toward conservatives like TPUSA Founder Charlie Kirk, Congressman Dan Crenshaw, and “Never Trump” leader Ben Shapiro who they feel are insufficiently right-wing. This has caused Fuentes to receive increased mainstream scrutiny, with many of his critics alleging he is a Holocaust denier, a charge that he vehemently denies.

Others who have been banished from popular social media platforms are speaking out on Fuentes’ behalf.

“Nick Fuentes has been banned from YouTube,” journalist and Congressional candidate Laura Loomer wrote on her Telegram account. “Not good. Censorship is getting out of control. He shouldn’t have been silenced.”

“The government hasn’t done a damn thing about censorship of conservatives online. Zero. The “conservative billionaires” have done less than zero,” noted Jacob Wohl.

“Reminder: “Hate speech” means being funny and popular while Right-wing,” banished provocateur Milo Yiannopolous wrote on Telegram.

“I would not be surprised if Michelle Malkin starts losing her accounts soon. Facebook’s rationale for nuking me was my support for Tommy Robinson, and she’s gone way further than that,” Yiannopolous added.

Malkin, who will be appearing alongside Fuentes at the America First Political Action Conference in Washington D.C. later this month, denounced YouTube in a post, also assigning the blame to “Conservative Inc.” voices for agitating against Fuentes.

Even Shapiro, who has a public feud with Fuentes, has come out against his censorship by YouTube.

Other prominent right-wing voices have voiced opposition to YouTube’s censorship of Fuentes as well:

YouTube’s parent company Google has been exposed for using their immense monopoly power to punish their political opponents, with a focus on manipulating the outcome of the election in November.

An insider leaked explosive documents to Project Veritas exposing Google’s illicit scheming last year.

The Big Brother crackdown against right-wing speech will only continue to intensify from Silicon Valley in the months to come.
