US Democrat Presidential Hopeful Attacks Big Tech Censorship

Democratic presidential candidate Rep. Tulsi Gabbard has released a new video calling for Americans from both sides of the aisle to unite and fight political censorship by the Big Tech monopolies.

Rep. Gabbard recently filed a $50 million lawsuit against Google for censoring her campaign’s ability to buy ads following the first Democratic primary debate when she was the most searched candidate.

“Join me in this fight to end big tech monopolies power to censor & undermine Americans’ freedom of speech—because whether we are progressives or conservatives, left or right, if we do not stand united to protect our freedoms, we all lose,” Rep. Gabbard tweeted.

Project Veritas Releases Email Leaked By Google Mole Approving Censorship Of Conservative Writers

from TownHall.com

Matt covered the bombshell Project Veritas report yesterday which showed key Google employees discussing the various ways that they can manipulate search results in order to ensure the type of United States election results that they want to see. What Google wants, the videos suggest, is to prevent President Trump from winning in 2020.

via Matt:

Well, Project Veritas decided to dig into this bastion of liberalism. After all, its reach to the public with their products is how millions get the news. It’s also a medium that Donald Trump harnessed expertly to outmaneuver the Left in the 2016 election. Liberals know it. Over at Google, one executive, Jen Gennai, is working hard to ensure that its AI feature and associated algorithms work hard to pretty much help alter electoral outcomes.

Project Veritas, founded by James O’Keefe, caught Gennai on tape chastising presidential candidate and progressive icon Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) for wanting to break up Google. Gennai claims this is wrong to do because smaller companies would not be able to prevent the “next Trump situation.”

“Elizabeth Warren is saying we should break up Google,” Gennai said. “And like, I love her but she’s very misguided, like that will not make it better it will make it worse, because all these smaller companies who don’t have the same resources that we do will be charged with preventing the next Trump situation, it’s like a small company cannot do that.”  READ ALL >>>

As this blog has reported and speculated on many times, Google’s actions and the comments made by their senior managers, and the cosy relationship the tech company enjoyed with The White House under the Obama administration give grounds to suspect the company is not interested in profit so much as political influence. That is undemocratic and sufficient reason for the parent organisation Alphabet to be broken up. But who is really behind Google’s rise to a position from which it can influence not only the outcome of elections (though obviously not as effectively as its directors like to think, but also shape government policy.

We should remind ourselves every day that Google was launched on its path to dominance of the World Wide Web with money from venture capital outfit InQtel, which as all of us who take the trouble to be well informed are aware is a front for the CIA.

Says it all really.

Facebook’s Censorship Drive Backfires As Advertisrs Dump Platform

 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.

Fascism Spreads From Tech Corporations To Finance Sector As Mastercard Blocks Conservative Clients

OK, it’s not happening here in Britain yet but bad ideas from the USA usually manage to leap across The Atlantic Ocean without difficiulty, and the really unpleasant ones make that crossing at supersonic speed. The latest crappy idea from the far right control freaks of the US Progressivw Liberal movement, and probably the crappiest yet to spring from that fountain of self – righteous idiocy is financial censorship of our activities by credit and debit card providers.

Blocking payments to individuals or groups by financial service firms because of their political views impedes freedom of speech in a free society, journalist Ben Swann has told RT, following reports that MasterCard is allegedly on course to censor the far-right by blocking payments from supporters.


Picture via Zero Hedge

The New York-based organisation is reported to be on the brink of being forced by pressure from far left extremists to create an internal “human rights committee” that would monitor payments to “white supremacist groups and anti-Islam activists.”

“The problem is that everyone has their own views and, in a free society, the idea of a free society is that you are free to have your belief systems, as long as you’re not harming anyone else physically,” Swann told RT America.

“But your belief system belongs to you and you have the right be wrong. White supremacists have the right to be wrong.”

MasterCard is not the only financial services provider considering the selective banning of individuals from their services and funds. Crowd funding webside Patreon and online payments handler PayPal have previously barred individuals considered to hold ‘extreme views’ from receiving payments via their platforms.

But unlike being excluded from online only platforms, being cut off from one of the leading global financial services corporations is likely have a much greater impact on the financial status of an individual or a group, especially after the US Securities and Exchange Commission reportedly blessed MasterCard’s undertaking.

By doing this, Swann believes the government granted “big corporations the ability to control what voices are heard.”

The issue with such an approach, the investigative journalist argues, would lead to a wider crackdown on financial payments to anyone who an authoritarian government would view as unfavorable.

“The fact that the SEC has given a green light to this essentially says the SEC supports the idea of censoring these groups in order to freeze out essentially anyone you don’t agree with,” the journalist said.

“It is a dystopian 1984 world view and yet we’re living through it right now,” the journalist observed.

Facebook Steps Up Censorship in Britain, Bans Populist News Site

Facebook continues its agenda of scrubbing its platform of populists and Islam critics in Britain, “unpublishing” the page of right-leaning news website Politicalite and suspending its editor-in-chief for a post supporting Tommy Robinson.
Breitbart News previously covered Google’s decision to suspend advertising services to Politicalite, and Facebook’s suspension of the site’s page amid a crackdown on supporters of Tommy Robinson following the release of “Panodrama,” Robinson’s undercover exposure of bias at the BBC. PayPal also recently suspended service to the website.

Last week, Breitbart News covered the takedown of posts linking to a Politicalite story from British Yellow Vest activist James Goddard. Now censorship against the populist website on Facebook continues

The site received a message that its Facebook page had been unpublished late last week.

Leaked Documents Reveal Facebook’s Biased, Convoluted Censorship Policies

Since the 2016 US Presidential election, when the phrase ‘fake news’ entered the vernacular, Facebook has employed thousands of human moderators tasked with identifying what is and is not acceptable content to be posted on the censorious social media website. These humans were not employed to replace the ‘Artificial Intelligence’ automated moderation system the nerdocracy that runs Facebook had previously relied on, but to make the judgements ‘Artificial Intelligence’ cannot (because far from being intelligent, it is as abjectly effing stupid as the nerds that probram the algorithms. It has come to light in leaked documents obtained by The New York Times that Facebook’s human moderators are doing a lousy job, promoting fake news while censoring truthful reports, because they  have been relying on outdated, inaccurate and biased “maze of PowerPoint slides” to police global political speech, according to the trove of 1,400 internal documents inspected and reported on by The New York Times

Moderators who have worked for Facebook admit they often rely on Google Translate to read posts, and are put under pressure to achieve targets by making decisions on the acceptability of content within a matter of seconds, just as call centre customer service agents are required to clear down calls quickly, according to the report.

The guidelines for moderators, reviewed every other Tuesday morning by “several dozen Facebook employees who gather over breakfast,” according to Facebook public relations propaganda, areare filled with “numerous gaps, baises and outright errors,” according to the Times.

Moderators were once told, for example, to remove fund-raising appeals for volcano victims in Indonesia because a co-sponsor of the drive was on Facebook’s internal list of banned groups. In Myanmar, a paperwork error allowed a prominent extremist group, accused of fomenting genocide, to stay on the platform for months. In India, moderators were mistakenly told to flag for possible removal comments critical of religion. –NYT

The guidelines, set by “mostly young engineers and lawyers,” must be interpreted by Facebook’s fleet of mostly outsourced moderators which employ largely unskilled workers, “many hired out of call centers.”

(Illegal migrants working on zero hours contracts perhaps? – editor)

Moderators have expressed frustration at rules they say don’t always make sense and sometimes require them to leave up posts they fear could lead to violence. “You feel like you killed someone by not acting,” one said, speaking on the condition of anonymity because he had signed a nondisclosure agreement. –NYT

According to Facebook executives, they are working diligently to rid the platform of “dangerous” content.

“It’s not our place to correct people’s speech, but we do want to enforce our community standards on our platform,” said Facebook senior News Feed engineer. “When you’re in our community, we want to make sure that we’re balancing freedom of expression and safety.”

The company’s head of global policy management, Monika Bickert, meanwhile, said that the company’s primary goal was to prevent harm – though perfection “is not possible.”

“We have billions of posts every day, we’re identifying more and more potential violations using our technical systems,” said Bickert. “At that scale, even if you’re 99 percent accurate, you’re going to have a lot of mistakes.

Indeed it is not, but can an organisations whose senior management have been only too willing to use the company’s position to promote the left wing, globalist causes they support, ever be trusted toensure balanced treatment for political and social commentary which challenges the idea and values their corporate leaders want to impose on the world?

And since Facebook’s set of rules are more or less a patchwork of Excel spreadsheets and unorganized PowerPoint presentations, there is no single master file or reference guide. ing to the Times, “Moderators must sort a post into one of three “tiers” of severity. They must bear in mind lists like the six “designated dehumanizing comparisons,” among them comparing Jews to rats.” Facebook insists the files are only for training, but moderators say they are used as day-to-day reference materials.

One document sets out several rules just to determine when a word like “martyr” or “jihad” indicates pro-terrorism speech. Another describes when discussion of a barred group should be forbidden. Words like “brother” or “comrade” probably cross the line. So do any of a dozen emojis. –NYT

“There’s a real tension here between wanting to have nuances to account for every situation, and wanting to have a set of policies we can enforce accurately and we can explain cleanly,” said Bickert, who added “We’re not drawing these lines in a vacuum.”

The Times concludes that entrusing to Facebook the task of policing of what they consider extremism or disinformation intrudes into sensitive political matters worldwide – “sometimes clumsily.”

“Facebook’s role has become so hegemonic, so monopolistic, that it has become a force unto itself,” said Balkans expert Jasmin Mujanovic. “No one entity, especially not a for-profit venture like Facebook, should have that kind of power to influence public debate and policy.

German politician calls on facebook to abolish free speech

Facebook Introduces Anti-sex Censorship In Secret

Facebook is to purge its platform of all sex-related content according to the announcement of a new policy banning everything from nude pictures to “sexualized slang,” up to and including “vague suggestive statements.” The social media giant has not bothered informing its users of the new move.

The new “sexual solicitation” rules were adopted by Facebook’s board of directors in October this year, according to PCMag. Once fully implemented they will forbid everything from pornography to “implicit sexual solicitation.” The latter term is purposefully vague, encompassing “vague suggestive statements, such as ‘looking for a good time tonight,’” discussion of “sexual partner preference,” content (including hand-drawn art) that depicts “suggestively posed persons,” and even the use of “sexualized slang.”

Facebook long ago banned pornographic content, and has been joined by many other platforms – even Tumblr is jumping on that bandwagon after a child porn scandal saw the site’s app banned from the Apple store,  but this new measure comes with typically Zuckerbergesque justification: “[P]eople use Facebook to discuss and draw attention to sexual violence and exploitation. We recognize the importance of Facebook and want to allow for this discussion. We draw the line, however, when content facilitates, encourages or coordinates sexual encounters between adults.”

You read that correctly – Facebook is OK with discussion of sexual violence, but doesn’t want to provide a platform for consenting adults to meet in real life, or even indulge in a bit of mild flirting. Well a #MeToo supporting dickless creep like Zuckerberg wouldn’t want to encorage the idea that sex can fun and fulfilling or anything other than  brutal, exploitative and life destroying.

A Facebook spokesperson claims it was Facebook’s human content reviewers (is he really asking us to believe Facebook employs real humans) who requested the new policy, claiming “the sexual exploitation policy did not adequately distinguish between exploitation (e.g. ‘My ex was a slut. Look at the photos she sent me.’) and solicitation (e.g. ‘Looking for swingers. Friday at 8 PM, [name of bar]. Wear pink.’) and solicitation (Hello big boy, I’ll give you a good time for $50).” The company has expanded its human workforce following user complaints that algorithms were flagging legitimate content for takedown, including classic works of art featuring exposed nipples and bottoms, and the American Declaration of Independence.

More disturbing than the rules themselves is Facebook’s failure to inform users that a large portion of their content – nearly all Facebook users have deployed a sexual innuendo at some point in their lives – is now likely to get them banned from the site. Shortly after the was adopted, Facebook purged hundreds of pages without warning and seemingly without rhyme or reason (one person’s innocent comments is another’s double – entendre), dismissing the deleted accounts as “spam” without any sort of appeal process for the affected users, some of whom had thousands of followers. The announcement of this policy, two months after its adoption, raises the disturbing possibility that rules like this could be used as justification for further purges (of political content for example.)

The Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) blames the controversial SESTA/FOSTA legislation passed in March for Facebook’s hard puritanical shift. Sex workers and LGBT activists took to Twitter to protest the new rules, which they say will disproportionately affect already-marginalized communities.
