Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) is recommending to Attorney General Bill Barr that Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg receive a criminal referral “for materially false statements made to Congress while testifying under oath.”
“As a member of this body, I question Mr. Zuckerberg’s veracity, and challenge his willingness to cooperate with our oversight authority, diverting congressional resources during time-sensitive investigations, and materially impeding our work,” Gaetz wrote in a letter released on Monday.
“Accordingly, I respectfully refer Mr. Zuckerberg to the Department for an investigation of potential violations of 18 U.S.C. §§1001, 1505, and 1621 for materially false statements made to Congress while testifying under oath,” Gaetz added.
Zuckerberg testified to the Senate Judiciary Committee and the Senate Commerce, Science and Transportation Committee on April 10, 2018, and then again in front of the House Energy and Commerce Committee a day later. Zuckerberg denied repeatedly that there was any bias against his conservatives on his platform in terms of content moderation policies.
Big League Politics reported last month on how Project Veritas produced undercover video showing Facebook content moderators boasting about how they suppress conservative and pro-Trump content on the platform:
Guerrilla journalism outfit Project Veritas released information on Tuesday from a Facebook insider who is blowing the whistle about the company’s biased anti-conservative content moderation policies.
Zach McElroy, who was formerly a content moderator for Facebook employed by the firm, Cognizant, spoke out against the company’s Big Brother censorship policies to Veritas.
“Facebook is, needless to say, a behemoth of a company, and most people – including most of my former coworkers who didn’t even find these abuses objectionable – would be terrified of ever speaking out publicly against them,” McElroy wrote on his GoFundMe page.
“Threatening NDAs ensured most of our silence, but nothing can stop the truth, and the courage of past [Veritas] whistleblowers gave me the confidence to step forward and expose the company for its egregious stifling of free speech and rampant abuse toward conservative voices,” he added.
The Veritas disclosure showed McElroy speaking with James O’Keefe, the organization’s founder, about how Facebook censors conservative content. It also features candid remarks from other content moderators explaining or even bragging about how they crush right-wing dissent on the platform.
“It’s a very progressive company who’s very anti-MAGA,” said Steve Grimmett, who serves as the team lead of content review for Facebook content moderation firm, Accenture.
“If a Trump post was to come up and it was promoting Trump, then I can take that down, then I feel like that would be very impactful,” said Facebook content moderator Lara Kontakos.
“If someone is wearing a MAGA hat I’m going to delete them for terrorism and I’m just going to like go crazy,” Kontakos added.
McElroy explained to O’Keefe how Facebook knowingly operates under double standards that punish conservative spech, and how the company flouts their own terms of service to promote a left-wing political agenda.
“Well, this is an image, I believe it’s in an art museum in Portland. They put this up as a bit of a political statement,” McElroy said regarding a lewd drawing of President Trump getting his throat slit.
“Facebook actually reacted to this at least internally. They gave us a memo saying that this would not violate for violence or incitement, or anything else really, and so we were told to leave this image up,” he added.
To contrast, an anti-gun control meme featuring failed Democrat presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke getting shot with a cartoon gun by popular Looney Tunes character Elmer Fudd was banished from the platform.
Veritas founder James O’Keefe fully supports Gaetz’s push for the technocratic oligarch to be investigated for potential criminal acts.
“If someone—anyone—lies to a lawmaker, he or she is deliberately manipulating the legislative process,” O’Keefe said.
“I urge DOJ to act quickly and investigate Mark Zuckerberg before Americans vote in November,” he added.
If Zuckerberg is charged and found guilty of giving false testimony to Congress, he could face up to five years in prison.
YouTube Censors Over 500,000 Videos to Protect Globalist COVID-19 Hysteria Narrative
Big Brother has been busy.
The Google-owned video hosting platform, YouTube, has removed over 500,000 videos that cast doubt on the official COVID-19 narrative over the past year.
YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki made the announcement in a letter about the platform’s priorities for the coming year. She is boasting about how her platform is enforcing Big Brother censorship.
“We’ve updated our policies to remove egregious medical misinformation about COVID-19 to prohibit things like saying the virus is a hoax or promoting medically unsubstantiated cures in place of seeking treatment,” Wojcicki wrote.
“We’ve continued to make updates to our COVID-19 policies to stay current with the science, and we’ve removed more than more than half a million videos under these policies since February,” she added.
Wojcicki made it clear that pushing Big Pharma’s experimental vaccines is a driving force behind her censorship agenda. This is part of the mad rush to stick as many people with the shots as quickly as possible before the many negative side-effects can be fully understood.
“We want to help people understand the importance of vaccinations by connecting them with timely information to make informed decisions,” she wrote.
Big League Politics reported last year when YouTube announced their censorship policies, which mandated the removal of all information not approved by the disgraced globalist World Health Organization (WHO):
YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki announced during an appearance on CNN that all information contradicting the official narrative from the discredited and disgraced World Health Organization (WHO) will be scrubbed from the popular video-sharing platform.
Wojcicki talked about how her platform will be “raising authoritative information” and “removing information that is problematic.”
“Of course, everything that is medically unsubstantiated, so people saying like ‘take Vitamin C’, ‘take turmeric’, those all will cure you. Those are examples of things that would be a violation of policy,” she explained.
“Anything that would go against World Health Organization recommendations would be a violation of our policy and so remove is another really important part of our policy,” she added…
YouTube, whose parent company is Google, is following in the footsteps of fellow tech monopoly Facebook. Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has led the way in terms of controlling content, destroying freedom of association, and perfecting the Orwellian nightmare with coronavirus used as the excuse to take power.
The Orwellian nightmare is being realized, and Big Tech entities are openly ushering it in. The current censorship is just the beginning, and it will end with alternative information being choked off permanently as consumers are trapped in a matrix of corporate propaganda.
