Zuckerberg’s Instagram Deletes Grieving Words of Dead Marine’s Mother Criticizing Biden
Last week Instagram deleted a post made by Gold Star Mother Shana Chappell grieving the death of her son Marine Kareem Nikoui, who was killed in the recent Kabul Airport bombings following Joe Biden’s controversial handling of the end to the war in Afghanistan, a country where Americans continue to remain stranded with no US troops present.
Republican Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene called attention to Instagram’s censorship of the post.
“How dare Instagram (owned by Facebook) cancel the grieving words of a Gold Star Mother after she shared this message to Joe Biden.
Her son, Marine Kareem Nikoui, was killed in Kabul.
Big tech needs to put their fascist politics aside and give Shana Chappell her freedom of speech and at least let her express her herself in the most painful time of her life!
This makes me sick.”Marjorie Taylor Greene’s post condemeding Instagram’s censorship
“It seems Instagram took it upon themselves to delete my account because i am assuming it was because i gained so many followers over my sons death due to Biden’s negligence, ignorance and him being a traitor,” Chappell wrote on Facebook following the deleting of her post. “I’m gonna assume that Facebook is gonna delete me next! Funny how these leftist one sided pieces of crap don’t want the truth to come out!”
“Keep in mind i only posted about my heart break over my son. Those of u who follow me on IG seen the post. My post was even shared on the news and now IG has disabled my account because of that post! Guess today I’ll accept those interviews from newsmax,fox,etc…Instagram you can not silence me!!! You deleted my account because my sons blood is on Biden’s hands!! 13 Heros blood is on Biden’s hands!!!! #instagram.”
Big League Politics has covered political censorship in the past, including the decisions of big tech oligarchs like Twitter to allow the Taliban on their platform while continuing to silence former President Trump.
“Twitter has decided that it will not be prohibiting the Taliban from using its platform, breaking ranks with Facebook, TikTok, and other tech companies who have decided to ban the terror group.
When asked if the Taliban will be disallowed from their platform, a spokesman from the company seemingly avoided the question, saying that Twitter will “continue to proactively enforce” its rules on the “glorification of violence, platform manipulation and spam.” The spokesman took time to praise Twitter for its benevolence as well, saying he was “witnessing people in the country using Twitter to seek help and assistance…”
French politician Jerome Riviere echoed similar sentiment across the world, saying, “Freedom and democracy are not doing well when Twitter continues to ban Trump’s account but relays the Taliban spokesperson’s without any second thoughts.”
Twitter has a long track record of engaging in censorship, with a recent scandal by the company involving their ban on accounts exposing the results of the recently concluded Arizona election audit…”
Representatives from Facebook or Instagram have yet to comment on their banning of Chappell’s post.
