Mark Zuckerberg Declares Facebook’s Support of Free Speech Amidst Unprecedented Crackdown on Alternative Media

There is nothing behind Zuckerberg’s lip service in favor of privacy.

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg announced during the Silicon Slopes Tech Summit in Utah on Friday that his tech corporation is going to support freedom of speech from this point forward.

“This is the new approach, and I think it’s going to piss off a lot of people. But frankly, the old approach was pissing off a lot of people too, so let’s try something different,” Zuckerberg said.

Zuckerberg is paying lip service to free speech and encryption while he is under fire from every angle. Conservatives are criticizing Facebook for deplatforming right-wing voices while liberals beg for more Draconian Big Brother censorship against their enemies. Zuckerberg has become a convenient punching bag as political polarization rises.

“Increasingly we’re getting called to censor a lot of different kinds of content that makes me really uncomfortable,” Zuckerberg said.

“We’re going to take down the content that’s really harmful, but the line needs to be held at some point,” he added.

Zuckerberg has the audacity to paint himself as a hero standing up for digital freedom during a tumultuous time.

“If you’re not out there standing for things that people care about then it’s not possible for people to feel that strongly about what you’re doing,” he said.

Zuckerberg talks about Facebook’s new focus in favor of freedom of speech while his platform cracks down on alternative media like never before.

Facebook has outsourced their censorship operation to supposedly “independent” fact checkers that flag stories that go against the globalist narrative. Pages that share the flagged stories are given strikes on the platform, and eventually censored from the news feed.

Big League Politics has been targeted by the Facebook Gestapo recently for reporting the truth about Jeffrey Epstein’s mysterious death and the Democrats’ war on the Bill of Rights. Zuckerberg’s goons suppressed a news story published by Big League Politics last week about legislation that would criminalize dissent against government officials in Virginia.

We took Facebook and their Orwellian truth commission to task for their shameful attempt to put a chokehold on the marketplace of ideas:

Last week, Big League Politics reported on a bill introduced in the Virginia legislature that would effectively criminalize dissent against government officials…

In short, the egregiously unconstitutional bill would make free speech dependent on rulings by biased government appointees, and cause a chilling effect on those who wish to speak out against public officials. This is the type of intolerable act that the Founding Fathers waged a revolutionary war to put to an end.

The Orwellian truth commission set up by Facebook found fault with the report and took measures to prevent it from being disseminated widely on the platform. They had their hired goons at Politifact flag the story as fake news in order to restrict the story from being shared and prevent social media users from knowing the truth about what is happening in Virginia.

Politifact claims that the legislation “spells out criminal penalties for harassment of or threats made to certain state officials. It does not affect ordinary free speech.” This is an assessment that is at best embarrassingly naive, but more likely the cognizant disinformation from a guilty and complicit agent of Big Brother.

The restrictive actions of Facebook toward independent content speak louder than Zuckerberg’s empty platitudes in favor of privacy.

Facebook Censors Project Veritas Video, Keeping Coronavirus Hysteria in High Gear

Big Brother is ramping up due to coronavirus.

Published

on

Facebook is reportedly throwing a Project Veritas video off of their monolithic social media platform because the video contains information about coronavirus that is unapproved by the political and media establishment.

CNN reporter Oliver Darcy reported that Facebook would be removing the Veritas video from their platform because of nebulous and unspecified policy violations. Veritas founder James O’Keefe blamed Darcy for allegedly being a snitch and attempting to get his video removed from social media platforms.

O’Keefe also blasted New York Times reporter Andrew Jacobs for his moral preening in criticizing his coronavirus reporting.

The controversial video published by Veritas shows O’Keefe talking with boots on the ground at coronavirus testing sites. He talked to Army personnel and health care workers who claimed the pandemic is not as bad as the media and government officials are purporting it to be.

Certain transcripts from the Veritas video can be seen here:

James O’Keefe: “What about the situation itself. Is it as bad as–the media is saying? The whole pandemic?”
New York Army National Guardsman: “Oh no. It’s the flu!”
O’Keefe: “That’s all it is?”
Guardsman: “It’s the flu.”

O’Keefe: “Is it as bad as they’re saying, this pandemic? Everyone’s freaking out. Is it bad, is it overblown by the media, what is it like?”
Medical worker: “Is it what?”
O’Keefe: “Is the media accurately reporting or is it as bad as people are saying?”
Medical worker: “No.”
O’Keefe: “It’s not as bad as the—”
Medical worker: “It’s precautionary.”
O’Keefe: “The media is making it out bigger?”
Medical worker: “Yes.”

O’Keefe’s video has garnered controversy because it goes against the narrative of fear and hysteria that has been pushed by the fake news media, government bureaucrats and official expert class.

“The rollout of our findings does not endorse COVID-19 behavior one way or another, nor do we encourage others. Our goal is to inform the public and allow the public to make judgments on the issues,” O’Keefe said. “Emotionally driven, knee-jerk reactions journalists are the last thing the public should be subjected to in a time of crisis.”

“I realize this will probably upset some, but Project Veritas goes to the front lines to get unfiltered, raw information, to the public. We’re not here to project a narrative or even to draw a conclusion—we don’t even know who the villains are, if any,” O’Keefe added.

Despite Facebook’s reported censorship of the Veritas video, there are no plans for Twitter and YouTube to remove the content from their platforms at the present time.
