In response to privacy concerns surrounding targeting of individuals, on Facebook has been working overboard to roll out new features and guidelines to protect the privacy of users. That is with everything besides political content, where they have taken the exact opposite approach.
To post political ads going forward, users will be required to go through a stringent verification process that can take weeks to get approved. With that verification process, a user will need to provide a form of identification, and will need to confirm their address through a code that will be mailed to them.
Facebook claims that these changes in their rules are about “[providing] people with more information about who’s behind the ads they’re seeing.” This makes it sound as though Facebook won’t just use that information to verify that people posting political ads are actual U.S. citizens, but it will use that information to let everyone know who posted the ad.
These aren’t just political campaigns, and issue advocacy organizations they are talking about as well. The definition of “political ad,” makes it appear that they are targeting anything that has to do with a national legislative issue, or is “otherwise regulated as political or election-related advertising.”
A “political ad” is defined as an ad that:
Is made by or on behalf of a candidate for public office, a political party, or a political action committee;
Advocates for the outcome of an election to public office or relates to the voting in an election for public office;
Relates to any national legislative issue of public importance in the place where the ad is being run; or
Is otherwise regulated as political or election-related advertising
So a group of concerned citizens attempting to rally in support, or in opposition to a political measure will be forced to endure the same restrictions as a U.S. Senate campaign. They will also be forced to identify themselves to the world if they want to speak out and put a little bit of money behind their speech.
These new changes put a damper on the right of anonymous political speech, which has been long upheld by the Supreme Court. If a citizen is concerned about an issue, they shouldn’t be forced to give up their privacy to practice that speech, even when they decide to throw some of their own money to spread their speech further.
Facebook is a private company, so they are allowed to put these requirements in place. But if Facebook is to become a “public utility,” as many are speculating they will, they should uphold the laws as written, and not make up their own rules.
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.
