OCTOBER SURPRISE: Facebook Announces New Big Brother Censorship Policy to Go Into Effect Before Election

How convenient.

Facebook Bans Pro Gun Group

Facebook has announced an October surprise in the form of a new policy that will come into place just weeks before the November election.

“We also can remove or restrict access to your content, services or information if we determine that doing so is reasonably necessary to avoid or mitigate adverse legal or regulatory impacts to Facebook,” the new terms of service read.

This new policy will allow Facebook to capriciously censor content from Trump supporters in the lead up to this year’s presidential election. It is another encroachment in the real electoral interference conspiracy coming from the Silicon Valley tech giants.

Big League Politics reported earlier this year about how Project Veritas discovered that Facebook’s content moderators are bragging about suppressing pro-Trump content:

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.

“Facebook is notorious for it,” said Facebook content moderator Daniel Will, referring to how the tech monopoly regularly shadowbans content. “And they say they don’t, but it’s clear that people’s content don’t come up because it’s been de-filtered off the queue.”

“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.

Facebook is trying to use their monopoly power, granted to them under Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act, to influence elections. They are more dangerous to democracy than the Russians could ever hope to be.

Hungary Will Take Action Against Big Tech Shadowbanning of Christians, Conservatives, and Other Right-Wingers

Holding Big Tech accountable.

Published

on

The government of Viktor Orban, prime minister of Hungary, has announced its commitment to take on Big Tech’s shadowbanning of Christians, conservatives, and other assorted right-wingers.

In a Facebook post shared Monday, Hungarian Minister of Justice Judit Varga said she believes that shadowbanning—the secret restriction of a social media user’s visibility—violates “fundamental democratic legal norms that form the basis of Western-type culture.”

Because of Big Tech’s “systematic abuses,” Varga said she convened a meeting of the Hungarian Digital Freedom Committee and will soon meet with the president of the Hungarian Competition Authority regarding “the possibility of sanctioning unfair commercial practices.”

Varga also claimed she has personally experienced shadowbanning and then linked to the following tweets from James O’Keefe and the O’Keefe-run Project Veritas:

Based?

The Hungarian government, along with the Polish government, is considered one of the last in the Western world that’s committed to some form of social conservatism and resistance against neoliberal globalism. Big League Politics has thus closely followed Prime Minister Orban and Hungary over the past several months, reporting on Orban’s various confrontations with George Soros and news such as their proposed constitutional amendment to prevent gay couples from adopting children:
