MORE CENSORSHIP: Facebook is Blocking Articles From ZeroHedge

The finance-focused website is the latest to be censored by Facebook.

Published

Facebook appears to be employing several of its well-known content filtration tactics to censor articles from the alternative media platform ZeroHedge.

The finance-based blog and news outlet published an article Monday revealing a trend of the social media behemoth nuking or censoring its content, most commonly by designating it to be spam.

Increasingly, giant Silicon Valley companies like Facebook and Google seek to minimize the spread of anti-establishment and populist political content through ‘shadow ban’ style techniques, as opposed to directly removing or banning it. The former allows the monopolies to deny responsibility for censorship, while shielding their liberal daddies from criticism or skepticism online.

At least some ZeroHedge content appears to have been outright banned. It’s likely that the Silicon Valley behemoth has altered its algorithm to automatically detect and censor ZeroHedge articles without so much as even a report from an incensed and offended progressive.

Much of the content being banned and censored was posted in conservative groups, contrasting with Facebook’s notion of ZeroHedge content being unwanted spam.

Facebook is increasingly taking a direct and heavy-handed approach towards conservative and libertarian group pages, often reaching at straws to find an excuse to shamelessly ban pages with more than 10,000 members.

Last month, the viral meme page ‘God Emperor Trump’s Dank Meme Stash’ was purged from the platform under the dubious grounds of promoting ‘nudity.’

It also appears that Facebook was nuking links to content on the website ‘Minds-‘ thus directly censoring content from a competitor to the Silicon Valley monopoly. Minds bills itself as a decentralized alternative to big tech authoritarianism and censorship.

ZeroHedge was one of the first online media platforms to take Donald Trump’s presidential candidacy seriously in 2015 and remains a preferred outlet for cryptocurrency buffs and others interested in finance.

Reddit Forced to Amend New Terms of Service After Carving Out Hate Speech Exemption Against Whites

Reddit was called on their anti-white TOS.

Social media giant Reddit has been forced to amend their new terms of service after they were called out for their anti-white bias.

Quillette writer Colin Wright noted on Sunday that Reddit’s new terms of service seemed to create an exemption that would allow for white people to be readily discriminated against on the platform.

“While the rule on hate protects such groups,” the old terms read, referring to various whining victim groups, “it does not protect all groups or all forms of identity. For example, the rule does not protect groups of people who are in the majority or who promote such acts of hate.”

Even though white people are a global minority, they are demonized by so-called minorities in the few countries in which they do have a majority. It does not take much analysis to understand why the terms of service were written in this manner and which group they were referencing.

After they were called out for their anti-white policies, Reddit changed their terms of service yet again. They made the policy on hate speech more vague, and less explicit, but still allowing for whites to be demonized on their platform.

“While the rule on hate protects such groups, it does not protect those who promote attacks of hate or who try to hide their hate in bad faith claims of discrimination,” Reddit wrote in the new terms of service.

Big League Politics reported on how Reddit booted r/TheDonald off the platform earlier this week as they intensify their Orwellian crackdown against dissident voices:

The social media platform Reddit announced on Monday that they are banning r/TheDonald and many other prominent channels supposedly guilty of hate speech in a massive censorship crackdown.

In addition to r/TheDonald, Reddit will also be removing r/ChapoTrapHouse and over 2,000 other channels from their platform. Reddit is santizing their platform before this year’s U.S. general election, and they want to make sure information is as tightly controlled as possible. They are doing this supposedly at the behest of Black Lives Matter activists who complained that Reddit was not doing enough to censor the voices of their opposition.

“I have to admit that I’ve struggled with balancing my values as an American, and around free speech and free expression, with my values and the company’s values around common human decency,” Reddit CEO Steve Huffman said in a call with reporters.

Huffman claimed that users on r/TheDonald promoted content that they want to suppress, so the entire community must go.

“The community has consistently hosted and upvoted more rule-breaking content than average (Rule 1), antagonized us and other communities (Rules 2 and 8), and its mods have refused to meet our most basic expectations,” Huffman said.

The new terms of service for Reddit contains a great deal of gibberish that can be essentially used to toss all speech deemed offensive to the left-wing mob off the platform.

Reddit is engaged in the Big Tech conspiracy to suppress conservative thought in the run up to this year’s presidential election. They ought to lose their special government protections under Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act until they consistently respect the American values of freedom of speech and open expression.
