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 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.”

“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.

Liberal billionaire apologizes for funding effort to link Russians to Republicans.  “Well, all righty then!”

Well, all righty then…, as long as he apologized, right?

Wait…, what?!

According to Lukas Mikelionis of Fox News, “Democratic operatives created fake Russian “bots” to link “the Russians” to [republican candidate] Roy Moore in the recent Alabama senate election.”

Amazing.

CAN YOU EVEN IMAGINE HOW THIS STORY WOULD BE TREATED IF IT HAD BEEN A RICH CONSERVATIVE DOING THIS?  The “biased, liberal, fake news media” would have lost their minds.  But, since it was a rich liberal democrat, they just look the other way.  Another example of propaganda by omission or disregard.

Okay, so first of all, what exactly is a “bot?”

A “bot” is a particular type of software that is employed in social media networks (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram) to automatically generate messages or in general advocate for certain ideas, support campaigns, and public relations either by acting as a “follower” or even as a fake account that gathers followers itself.  Currently, it is estimated that up to 15% of active Twitter accounts may be social bots.  “Social bots can generate convincing internet personas that are very capable of influencing real people.

Using social bots is against the terms of service of many platforms, especially Twitter and Instagram.  However many users, especially businesses, still automate their Instagram activity in order to gain real followers rather than buying fake ones. This is commonly done through third-party social automation companies.

Liberal Silicon Valley billionaire Reid Hoffman issued an apology for funding a group that falsely tried to give an impression the Russian government was supporting Alabama Republican Roy Moore in last year’s Senate election against the now elected Senator, democrat, Doug Jones.

Hoffman is the co-founder of “LinkedIn” (LinkedIn is a business and employment-oriented service that operates via websites and mobile apps. It is mainly used for professional networking, including employers posting jobs and job seekers posting information about themselves.

Reid Hoffman is also one of Silicon Valley’s top donors to Democrat campaigns and PACs.  In the last election cycle he donated $7 million to Democrat groups, though his money also pours into non-traditional groups that aren’t mandated to report their funding and often operate in the shadows.

One such group is American Engagement Technologies (AET). According to Mikelionis, AET is a firm run by former Obama appointee Mikey Dickerson, which received $750,000 from Hoffman and was part of the effort to falsely portray the Republican’s senate bid as being supported by the Kremlin.

Oh…, an “Obama appointee.”  Did you ever notice that when stuff like this pops up, these names associated with the miss deeds display the obvious incestuous liberal nature of “the swamp?”

“I find the tactics that have been recently reported highly disturbing. For that reason, I am embarrassed by my failure to track AET, the organization I did support, more diligently as it made its own decisions to perhaps fund projects that I would reject,” Hoffman said in a statement provided to the Washington Post.

Ya, AET, I am totally disturbed that you would allow yourself to get busted and implicate me on top of it!  That’s what he really means.

“I want to be unequivocal: there is absolutely no place in our democracy for manipulating facts or using falsehoods to gain political advantage,” he added.

Oh, you’re so noble Mr. Hoffman!  So tell me, what are you then, stupid, ignorant, incompetent, or a cheat and a liar?

Ding, ding, ding…, I think have a winner there with “a cheat and a liar!”

“Hoffman said AET went on to facilitate a secret project with a budget of $100,000.  One participant in the project was Jonathon Morgan, the chief executive of New Knowledge, a firm that wrote a report, released by the Senate Intelligence Committee earlier this month, about Russia’s social media operations in the 2016 election and its efforts to hurt Hillary Clinton and help Donald Trump.”

So, Mr. Jonathon Morgan, do you know Christopher Steele by chance?  I have a feeling that Mr. Morgan’s report is about as reputable as Mr. Steele’s fraudulent dossier.

Democratic operatives then created thousands of fake Russian accounts on Twitter and began following Moore, prompting attention from local and national media that falsely suggested Russia is backing Moore’s candidacy.

The project also involved creating a Facebook page and imitated conservative Alabamians who weren’t satisfied with the Republican candidate while encouraging others to write in another candidate.

In a statement on Twitter, Morgan denied the project was aimed at influencing the election, which the Democrat won by 22,000 votes. “I did not participate in any campaign to influence the public,” he wrote, saying the project goals weren’t about supporting the Jones campaign.

Deny, deny, deny.  Deflect, deflect, deflect.  You can’t deny that this is a strategy that works, especially when you have a cooperative “biased, liberal, fake news media” that will look the other way.

The disinformation campaign was first revealed by the New York Times that obtained an internal report detailing the efforts.

“We orchestrated an elaborate ‘false flag’ operation that planted the idea that the Moore campaign was amplified on social media by a Russian botnet,” the internal report said.

The multi-million Senate Alabama race ended with Jones victory over the embattled Republican.  Doug Jones became the first Democratic senator from Alabama in more than 20 years.

Jones has since told Fox News that he’s “outraged” over the reports detailing the efforts to portray his opponent as backed by the Kremlin, calling for a federal investigation over the project (although not willing to discount the obviously influenced election results).

“I’d like to see the Federal Election Commission and the Justice Department look at this to see if there were any laws being violated and, if there were, prosecute those responsible,” Jones said. “These authorities need to use this example right now to start setting the course for the future to let people know that this is not acceptable in the United States of America.”

Yes, we know Senator Jones, it’s not acceptable, although you’re not willing to discount the obviously influenced election results regarding your own election victory.

The daily hypocrisy, the daily examples of double standards, the almost daily revealing of questionable/illegal activity by liberals and democrats, is really hard to take some days.  But like I have said before, “the swamp” has our (the conservatives) full and undivided attention now, and you can’t just sweep this crap under the rug anymore like you had become accustomed to.

WINNING!
