The CENSORING of America!

In recent days, we have seen Facebook and Twitter censoring articles critical of presidential candidate, Joe Biden, and his son, Hunter.

They claim these articles are “unverified,” and therefore should not be spread on social media.

Oh…, do you mean like the unverified Russian collusion reports which were shoved down our throats for over two years?!

For over two years…, night and day!!!

Seriously?!

And the people attempting to spread these reports are having their accounts censored, locked, blocked, or shutdown altogether!

Is this really happening in America?!

I feel like we are experiencing censorship you could expect to experience in Communist Russia or Communist China…, not in The United States of America. 

 I don’t recall Facebook and Twitter censoring ANY anti-Trump, Russian hoax, anonymous source, reports.

Facebook, Twitter, and the mainstream media have shown their hands here.

They are all undeniably co-conspirators and propaganda allies of the democrat party.

Undeniably and unabashedly.

Without question.

In a related article, according to Brian Flood of Fox News, “Ex-Facebook honcho Tim Kendall says Big Tech is a ‘threat to democracy,’ and calls for social media reform.”

‘“Media Angle’ is a column [for Fox News] offering perspectives on the media landscape from the newsmakers themselves.

‘“Moment’ CEO Tim Kendall is among the stars of the wildly popular Netflix documentary ‘The Social Dilemma,’ which tackles the negative impact social media and Big Tech can have on people — and the former Facebook executive feels Big Tech is a threat to democracy that could eventually lead to a civil war in America.” 

‘“Extreme outcomes are the logical end conclusion if there is no action on social media reform during the increasing destabilization of civil society,’ Kendall told Fox News.”

“The Social Dilemma” features several Silicon Valley insiders explaining the dark side of social media, with everyone from the co-inventor of Facebook’s ‘like’ button to high-powered executives weighing in.” 

“Kendall, who is a central figure in the film, was once the director of monetization at Facebook but now runs ‘Moment,’ a company dedicated to ‘fighting to reimagine the tech industry as one built for its users.’”

“MA: Big tech is called a ‘global assault on democracy’ in the film, and you say you’re concerned it could lead to a civil war. Why are these horrifying claims realistic?”  

“Kendall: The attention-based business model of social media companies is a threat to democracy. We as users are attracted to content that entertains us and reinforces our views. ‘Big Social,’ as I call it, knows this and presents information that will keep us coming back to their platforms. These corporate practices encourage online tribalism that exacerbates the societal division we see today amid unprecedented economic, climate, and public health turmoil.”

“I truly believe things will not get better until tech companies move away from creating exploitative products that drive conflict over conversation, division over unity, and misinformation over truth. Extreme outcomes are the logical end conclusion if there is no action on social media reform during the increasing destabilization of civil society.”  

“MA: A recent report showed the overwhelming majority of campaign contributions from employees at big tech firms went to Democratic candidates. Do conservatives have even more to fear than liberals and progressives?” 

I can answer that one! 

The real answer is a resounding “YES!”

“Kendall: We cannot allow the conversation around misinformation and social media addiction to become a partisan issue. Big Social does not care what content you are consuming, where you live, or what you believe so long as you are giving away your time to their platforms and helping drive up their advertising revenues.”

What do you mean, “We cannot allow the conversation around misinformation and social media addiction to become a partisan issue?”

It IS most definitely a “partisan issue.”

It IS an attack on conservatives by the liberals who control and run these social media companies. 

And “Big Social” absolutely does care about what “content you are consuming,” and they are intent on making sure they steer you on the “enlightened” and the “approved” liberal path.

“MA: What needs to happen to alleviate your concerns about social media’s impact on modern society?”   

“Kendall: I think there are three things that need to change. First, until the financial incentives are removed these companies will continue to operate by creating social media addicts of its users. Second, we need better regulation—no industry, including tech, should be in the position to regulate themselves. Third, we need innovation to help people take back their lives from their devices. This is in part why I started my company, ‘Moment,’ to develop tools that give control back to individuals.”

Okay…, so one and three won’t be happening anytime soon.

I’m not normally a big fan of government regulations, but in this case, we really have no other options. 

Discrimination calls for regulation!!!

‘“The Social Dilemma’ is now streaming on Netflix.”

Google is suppressing access to my website, especially those users searching within the United States, and I could really use your help.

I mentioned this censorship in a prior blog on July 22, 2020, titled, “Google is a gaggle of fascists.”

https://mrericksonrules.wordpress.com/2020/07/22/google-is-a-gaggle-of-fascists/

Again…, please spread the word about MrEricksonules.com.

Thank you for all of your continued support.

Google is a gaggle of fascists.

As just a reminder, fascism is a form of authoritarianism characterized by forcible suppression of the opposition, as well as having a desire to control society and the economy.

You be the judge if Google is operating from a fascist platform or not.

Dan Gainor, of TechWatch, reports for Fox News, “If you wanted an example of the worst abuses of Big Tech and leftist journalism, Google and NBC teamed up this week to deliver one.”

“NBC and Google try to censor [are censoring] conservative websites, endangering free expression.”

agoogle 3

“An openly leftist NBC staffer based in the United Kingdom worked hand-in-hand with a foreign advocacy group to attack two conservative news organizations in the United States. And Google did its best to help them.”

“NBC reporter Adele-Momoko Fraser, employed at the scary-sounding ‘Verification Center,’ worked with the Center for Countering Digital Hate [CCDH]. CCDH is a British operation that claims it ‘seeks to disrupt the architecture of online hate and misinformation.’ ​Together, they tried to financially ruin The Federalist and ZeroHedge.”

agoogle 1

“Fraser and CCDH tried to silence their political opponents with a presidential election less than five months away.  Remember all the media hype about foreign involvement in our elections?  In fact, the anti-Trump media never really cared. They just wanted foreign involvement on their side.”

“Initially, NBC News claimed that Google had ‘banned’ The Federalist and ZeroHedge from its ad platform for the crime of ‘pushing unsubstantiated claims’ about Black Lives Matter.”

Were these “claims” “unsubstantiated” or incompatible with their narrative?

“NBC cited a Google spokesperson as saying the company has policies that ‘explicitly prohibit derogatory content that promotes hatred, intolerance, violence or discrimination based on race from monetizing.’”

I would say they are prohibiting content that may be derogatory, but which are simply stating the truth.

“An article on the NBC website went to claim that both sites had been demonetized, but Google backed off its attacks on The Federalist. For now.”

“The ‘reporter’ was thrilled and thanked CCDH and its sister group ‘for their hard work and collaboration [I would use the word “complicitness”].’ Just in case you thought she was neutral, she even added the Black Lives Matter hashtag. She later deleted that, but the Internet is forever. Just like her bias.”

“She wasn’t the only one celebrating. Imran Ahmed, CCDH founder and CEO, was ‘delighted’ and tweeted out the article, calling it his organization’s ‘biggest win ever.’”

“CCDH isn’t done by a long shot. The group is ‘calling on advertisers to blacklist these 10, U.S-based, racist Fake News sites.’ The list includes The Federalist and ZeroHedge, along with Breitbart, American Thinker and WND. If leftists like Ahmed have their way, conservatives won’t be allowed to post anywhere online.”

Who does Google think it is?

Google doesn’t control the internet…, they are merely a search engine utilizing the web.

“Remember that the next time so-called journalism professionals whine about press freedom. Or even complain about the Hollywood blacklist. Leftists now are the new McCarthyites.”

A “McCarthyite” is someone who employs practices that endorses the use of unfair allegations and investigations.

McCarthyism was a vociferous campaign against alleged communists in the US government and other institutions carried out under Senator Joseph McCarthy in the period 1950–54. Many of the accused were blacklisted or lost their jobs, although most did not in fact belong to the Communist Party.”

Today’s “McCarthyite” attacks those who dare to disagree with their Marxist/socialist/communist platform.

“The censorship caused an uproar, especially since it landed right in the middle of both federal and congressional debate about reining in the power of Big Tech companies.”

“Google wasn’t subtle. It showed the world that it has too much control over our lives and that the most powerful company on Earth is also an enemy of the very freedoms that protect it.”

Well said.

agoogle 13

“Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, was one of several members of Congress to criticize Google. He sent a letter to the company saying its actions raised ‘serious concerns that Google is abusing its monopoly power in an effort to censor political speech with which it disagrees.’”

It is my belief that MrEricksonRules.com has been a victim of this censorship as well.

Those of you familiar with my site can understand Google wanting to censor me.

I deal with trumpeting the truth, and exposing those who attempt to hide and pervert it.

We the people with American bald eagle and flag.

Based on the statistics provided by my website provider, it is pretty obvious that web searches have been directed away from my website, especially within the US, even though I pay Google to help promote my website!

This would constitute fraud as well as censorship, wouldn’t it?

I have contacted Google Ads regarding this situation, but have not received any communication back as of yet.

What a surprise.

agoogle 11

Isn’t it time to deal with this monopoly?

The government broke up “The” phone company at one point.

The only problem is that many of our politicians like Google being able to censor the internet in their favor, even though it is contrary to our Constitutional rights.

“The co-founders of The Federalist, Ben Domenech and Sean Davis, wrote in The Wall Street Journal: ‘The episode illustrates how dangerous the combination of partisan media and monopolistic tech companies is to America.’”

“They couldn’t be more right. Since this incident occurred, Facebook took down some ads for President Trump on its site, once more bowing to the leftists inside and outside its company.”

“It was also revealed that Twitter had tried to pressure Sen. Tom Cotton, R-Ark., and threatened to shut down his account ‘permanently.’”

“Cotton had gotten in trouble with Twitter over the use of the words ‘No quarter for insurrectionists, anarchists, rioters, and looters.’ If America is to survive as a free nation, then we might modify Cotton’s statement: ‘No quarter for censorship.’”

How dare he oppose “insurrectionists, anarchists, rioters, and looters!”

agoogle 14

“In practical terms, that means Big Tech and its leftist activist buddies in the news media have made it clear they don’t believe in free speech or free press for any that oppose them. They have made it clear they don’t want a free election this year or any time after. They have made it clear they are at war with the very nation that protects the freedoms they have used to become so powerful.”

“So now the big question: Are we going to let them get away with it?”

If Sleepy Joe wins in November, this will just become standard operating procedure.

Social media is getting pretty antisocial!

According to Subrat Patnaik and Shubham Kalia for Reuters, “Twitter hid a tweet from President Donald Trump on Friday, accusing him of breaking its rules by ‘glorifying violence’ in a message that said looters at protests in Minneapolis would be shot.”

That doesn’t sound like “glorifying violence…,” it sounds like a warning or a threat.

atweet 17

“Twitter’s decision to step in, at a time of racially charged civil unrest in cities across the United States, escalates a feud between [President] Trump and tech companies.”

“It came just hours after Trump signed an executive order threatening Silicon Valley social media firms with new regulations [guaranteeing] free speech.”

‘“…These THUGS are dishonoring the memory of George Floyd, and I won’t let that happen. Just spoke to Governor Tim Walz and told him that the Military is with him all the way. Any difficulty and we will assume control but, when the looting starts, the shooting starts. Thank you!’ [President] Trump’s tweet read.”

atweet 2

“[President] Trump’s message can now be seen only after clicking on a notice which says: ‘This Tweet violated the Twitter Rules about glorifying violence. However, Twitter has determined that it may be in the public’s interest for the Tweet to remain accessible.’”

So nice of you to allow us to see what our President has to say!

Where the hell are we?!

We are still living in America, aren’t we?

This is beginning to sound like more and more like George Orwell’s book, “1984.”

atweet 8

It took a little longer than George thought, but it is happening.

“1984” is a dystopian novel by English novelist George Orwell.

A dystopia is a community or society that is undesirable or frightening. It is a state or society where there is great suffering or injustice.

The book was published in 1949, and centers on the consequences of government over-reach, totalitarianism, mass surveillance, and repressive regimentation of all persons and behaviors within society.

The story takes place in an imagined future, the year 1984, when much of the world has fallen victim to perpetual war, omnipresent government surveillance, a distortion of the historical record, and propaganda.  The “thought police” are employed there as well.

“1984” popularized the adjective “Orwellian,” which represents things such as official deception, secret surveillance, brazenly misleading terminology, and manipulation of recorded history by a totalitarian or authoritarian state.

atweet 16

Is all of this starting to sound familiar?

“Twitter said it had taken its action over the Trump tweet ‘in the interest of preventing others from being inspired to commit violent acts.’”

Oh…, of course…, it was in our best interests, for our own safety, for our own good.

That’s what the Nazis told the Jews as the forced them from their homes.

atweet 4

Former San Francisco 49ers quarterback and liberal political activist, Colin Kaepernick, recently tweeted about the Minneapolis riots, “The cries for peace will rain down, and when they do, they will land on deaf ears, because your violence has brought this resistance. We have the right to fight back!”

atweet 3

Now there’s a tweet that seems to be “glorifying violence.”

atweet 9

Where’s the notice that this tweet violated Twitter’s rules?

We all know Twitter is just fine with Kaepernick’s tweet, but all up in arms over President Trump’s tweet.

atweet 7

There are hundreds of millions of tweets every day.

This is targeted censorship.  I guarantee you that I could tweet the exact same thing President Trump did and there would be no warning or disclaimer attached to my tweet.

In fact, I can guarantee you there are tens of thousands of untruthful tweets and tweets promoting violence out there that will never be flagged.

The only tweets that will be flagged are those which, by flagging them, will advance the liberal narrative.

There’s no real concern about safety or truthfulness.

It’s ALL about advancing the liberal narrative.

atweet 15

On a side note…, Twitter is based in…, where else but…, in San Francisco, California!

Well, who’da thunk it?

atweet 12

Where else would the liberal word and thought police be headquartered?

WINNING!
