Mark Zuckerberg’s bid to set up Facebook as official censor by appointment to The New World Order has backfired spectacularly as major brands are feeing the social media giant’s advertising platform. CrossFit just announced they are shuttering their Facebook and instagram ad campaigns due to censorship, which filters out conservative and libertarian flavoured content and promotes only far left propaganda.
Facebook recently banned one of their affiliate pages without reason or warning. Many other organisations have been purged, somtimes not for actually supporting right wing political views but for simply not being enthusiastic enough about the kind of far left sacred cows Zuckerberg likes to embrace for his virtue signalling exercises. Other unethical behavior Facebook has engaged in around data rights includes collecting private data from users’ home systems without authority, selling said data to advertisers and public relations consultants, ignoring court orders to cease and desist, tax evasion and a host of other bltantly illegal or ethically dubious activities.
The issues raised by CrossFit’s decision reflect conservative concerns over free speech and social media censorship given the political bias shown by the owners of these companies. It seems that in their quest to satiate the outrage mob they have banned too many accounts, often without any reason other than that those sites reflect views that do not coincide with those of some egomaniacal Silicon Valley bilionaire.
When you appease exrtremists by banning one group then those same people demand you ban another group and it never ends. It is a trait of the left wing mindset that it can only ever go further in the same direction. Thus Facebook caving to far left faux – outrage over non – issues like ‘transgender rights’ or banning support for Israel has resulted in their steady decline. Young people are are abandoning the platform as it is now longer seen as cool, but has become a byword for authoritarian and illiberal business practices and political views. And now even it’s biggest backer, the U.S. government is targeting Zuckerberg’s empire with anti-trust measures. As more people and groups get banned on facebook more people decide to leave.
