Here we go again, the first in what I'm sure will be the next wave of crackdowns by large media platforms to protect us all from 'the terrible danger of misinformation'.

Facebook's just updated that they'll be taking 'misinformation' about the chauvin trial very seriously and employing 'fact' checkers to ensure nothing 'false' gets through.


about.fb.com...



As with all high-profile events, we are taking extra steps to limit misinformation. This includes using several tools to ensure that potential misinformation is flagged to our network of third-party fact-checking partners. For content that is graphic or may be difficult for some people to see, we will mark them as disturbing or sensitive.

And given the risk of violence following the announcement of the verdict, regardless of what it is, we remain in close contact with local, state and federal law enforcement. We will respond to valid legal requests and support any investigations that are in line with our policies.



I find this next one a bit funny, what are the chances any BLM pages will get taken down you think?


We will remove Pages, groups, Events and Instagram accounts that violate our violence and incitement policy and we will remove events organized in temporary, high-risk locations that contain calls to bring arms.


Facebook's duty is to protect George Floyd's family?? Ummm ok...


Our teams are working around the clock to look for potential threats both on and off of Facebook and Instagram so we can protect peaceful protests and limit content that could lead to civil unrest or violence. This includes identifying and removing calls to bring arms to areas in Minneapolis, which we have temporarily deemed to be a high-risk location. We will continue to monitor events on the ground to determine if additional locations will be deemed as temporary, high-risk locations. We are also working to protect the memory of George Floyd and members of the Floyd family from harassment and abuse. Under our policies, we will remove content that praises, celebrates or mocks George Floyd’s death


They are working to protect the memory of George Floyd....so...yeah you're going to be censored to make sure nobody thinks badly of poor Fentynyl Floyd...

Not quite sure how to describe Susan Wabbajocky

Already have the damage control in place. As a matter of fact they have already been censoring content showing the violence of their corporate boot lickers.

‘ “The masses never revolt of their own accord, and they never revolt merely because they are oppressed. Indeed, so long as they are not permitted to have standards of comparison, they never even become aware that they are oppressed.”’

Quoted from the book 1984. Very pertinent I feel.

Remove all measure of comparison then manufacture reality as is seen fit.

Imagine if Orwell had lived long enough to see Facebook, google et al. and wrote a 'revamp' of 1984. I'd honestly dread to think of what he'd come up with because, within 20 years or less, that'd be reality and i don't think it'd be very awesome.

We don't really give a damn about George Floyd or the Floyd family, but we will pander, virtue signal, and do whatever is politically correct to continue our charade of "standing in solidarity" with people of color, and showing how woke facebook is.

If Orwell was alive he would relegated to the same ranks as Alex Jones for being to right. From what I’ve gathered a person can clutch verified empirical and still be fact checked into oblivion by what amounts to a giant propaganda web of media platforms that control what is reality. Literally they have the power superseded whole governments.
