ZUCKED: Facebook Gave Left Wing Media Advanced Notice of Infowars, Loomer, Yiannopoulos Bans

Facebook Advanced Notice Ban

Big League Politics has confirmed that Facebook gave establishment media, including The Atlantic, advanced notice of their plan to ban Alex Jones, Paul Joseph Watson, Laura Loomer, and Milo Yiannopoulos from Facebook and Instagram.

Facebook sent an embargoed press release to The Atlantic, and other outlets likely including The Washington Post, The Verge and CNN, informing these mainstream media outlets of their intention to ban Jones, Watson, Loomer, and Yiannopoulos from Facebook and Instagram for being “dangerous” and “hate figures” well in advance of the actual bans.

Taylor Lorenz from The Atlantic confirmed that they received the embargoed press release, as did “tons of media outlets”, in a direct message sent on Twitter to Big League Politics reporter Peter D’Abrosca, claiming this is something Facebook does as many as “20 times a week.” She then blocked D’Abrosca from sending further messages on the platform.

Lorenz did not confirm whether the Facebook employee who sent the embargoed press release is the same point of contact, Sarah Pollack, who later supplied Big League Politics with further details surrounding the Facebook ban. Pollack also declined to clearly state whether she sent the press release to the various major media outlets when asked by Big League Politics earlier today.

Sources from two major conservative media outlets also confirmed to Big League Politics that they did not receive the embargo, despite reaching tens of millions of people every month and having existed for decades.

This is likely what caused many establishment media outlets to report on the censorship wave well in advance of the actual bans, which gave many of those now purged the opportunity to inform their fans of their coming censorship and encourage fans to follow them on other platforms.

An anonymous source has suggested Facebook likely concocted its plan to ban Jones as early as last Monday, April 29, when he and various other individuals unaffiliated with Jones or Infowars were no longer allowed to stream Infowars content to Facebook using their personal accounts.

While Facebook has not confirmed or denied having an official relationship with the legally embattled Southern Poverty Law Center, the organization took credit for Facebook’s decision to ban the “hate figures” last week, something that raises concern considering Facebook suggested Jones’ decision to interview Gavin McInnes on his show is part of what led to Facebook’s decision to ban him.

McInnes is currently suing the SPLC for its decision to name him a “hate figure”, which he believes is why he was deplatformed across social media and why his associates have been shut out of major financial systems.

In addition to banning Jones, Facebook may now ban any user who posts videos featuring Jones, or links to websites including his broadcasts or videos.

Facebook’s unwillingness to explicitly condemn the SPLC may serve as a de facto endorsement of the culture of misogyny and racism garnered by the organization prior to the termination or resignation of several major individuals.

Facebook Censors Project Veritas Video, Keeping Coronavirus Hysteria in High Gear

Big Brother is ramping up due to coronavirus.

Published

on

Facebook is reportedly throwing a Project Veritas video off of their monolithic social media platform because the video contains information about coronavirus that is unapproved by the political and media establishment.

CNN reporter Oliver Darcy reported that Facebook would be removing the Veritas video from their platform because of nebulous and unspecified policy violations. Veritas founder James O’Keefe blamed Darcy for allegedly being a snitch and attempting to get his video removed from social media platforms.

O’Keefe also blasted New York Times reporter Andrew Jacobs for his moral preening in criticizing his coronavirus reporting.

The controversial video published by Veritas shows O’Keefe talking with boots on the ground at coronavirus testing sites. He talked to Army personnel and health care workers who claimed the pandemic is not as bad as the media and government officials are purporting it to be.

Certain transcripts from the Veritas video can be seen here:

James O’Keefe: “What about the situation itself. Is it as bad as–the media is saying? The whole pandemic?”
New York Army National Guardsman: “Oh no. It’s the flu!”
O’Keefe: “That’s all it is?”
Guardsman: “It’s the flu.”

O’Keefe: “Is it as bad as they’re saying, this pandemic? Everyone’s freaking out. Is it bad, is it overblown by the media, what is it like?”
Medical worker: “Is it what?”
O’Keefe: “Is the media accurately reporting or is it as bad as people are saying?”
Medical worker: “No.”
O’Keefe: “It’s not as bad as the—”
Medical worker: “It’s precautionary.”
O’Keefe: “The media is making it out bigger?”
Medical worker: “Yes.”

O’Keefe’s video has garnered controversy because it goes against the narrative of fear and hysteria that has been pushed by the fake news media, government bureaucrats and official expert class.

“The rollout of our findings does not endorse COVID-19 behavior one way or another, nor do we encourage others. Our goal is to inform the public and allow the public to make judgments on the issues,” O’Keefe said. “Emotionally driven, knee-jerk reactions journalists are the last thing the public should be subjected to in a time of crisis.”

“I realize this will probably upset some, but Project Veritas goes to the front lines to get unfiltered, raw information, to the public. We’re not here to project a narrative or even to draw a conclusion—we don’t even know who the villains are, if any,” O’Keefe added.

Despite Facebook’s reported censorship of the Veritas video, there are no plans for Twitter and YouTube to remove the content from their platforms at the present time.
