ORWELLIAN: Facebook Announces Prohibition of Naming Alleged Anti-Trump ‘Whistleblower’ Eric Ciaramella
Social media provider Facebook has announced that it will be prohibiting any mention of the anti-Trump whistleblower on their platform.
The whistleblower, widely believed to be 33-year-old CIA officer Eric Ciaramella, filed a complaint against the President based on his correspondence with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky without any first-hand knowledge of the situation.
Ciaramella allegedly made his complaint anonymously, but has been fingered as the source in recent days by many media outlets. Even the House Intelligence Committee, under the stewardship of Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), unmasked Ciaramella in Congressional impeachment testimony in a display of remarkable incompetence.
Um – why is Eric Ciaramella's name in the congressional Impeachment testimony?
Dems said they would redact the name of the "whistleblower."
1. Ciaramella is not the whistleblower

But still, Facebook is reportedly banning any mention of Ciaramella on their platform in the hopes of putting the genie back in the bottle in order to promote the political lynching of President Trump.
“Any mention of the potential whistleblower’s name violates our coordinating harm policy, which prohibits content ‘outing of witness, informant, or activists,'” a Facebook representative said in a statement on Friday.
“We are removing any and all mentions of the potential whistleblower’s name and will revisit this decision should their name be widely published in the media or used by public figures in debate,” they added.
Facebook caved to the deep state shortly after Twitter initiated a similar policy by issuing restrictions and temporary bans against accounts that shared the name of the dubious whistleblower:
The alleged deep state “whistleblower” who filed a complaint against President Donald Trump over his correspondence with Ukraine – now widely believed to be 33-year-old CIA officer Eric Ciaramella – is being protected by a political establishment desperate to keep the impeachment circus going.
Social media is taking cues from the fake news, which steadfastly refuses to disclose Ciaramella’s name. Twitter is even restricting and temporarily banning accounts that mention Ciaramella as the Big Tech giant grows desperate to prevent the truth from going viral.
Unfortunately for Twitter, the name is already widely circulating despite their best efforts. The fake news freaked out after Donald Trump Jr. posted Ciaramella’s name on his Twitter account earlier today…
The story started to gain traction last week after Ciaramella was named as the likely whistleblower in a report published by journalist Paul Sperry at Real Clear Investigations (RCI). This has been largely ignored by the fake news and is now being censored by social media platforms, as the coordinated suppression effort rears its ugly head yet again.
Tom Kuntz, who works as editor of RCI, compares what he is seeing from the establishment to a mafia code of silence.
“The silence has been deafening,” he told The Week. “It’s almost like there’s a code of omerta [the Mafia vow of silence] about what media organizations can report. . . . There’s a herd mentality and a reluctance to cut against the grain.”
The coordination between the deep state, the fake news, and Big Tech companies to foment the witch hunt against President Trump is truly unprecedented, and represents an existential threat to U.S. democracy that the Russians could never dream of achieving.
