If you’ve newly flown in from the Planet Zog [or are leftwing and have been ignoring it], you might not be aware that many online blogs [millions] have for some time been pointing out about attempts by the leftwing online media stranglehold to expunge alternative views from the net.
This is one small example:
GAB yesterday issued this:
Since August 2016 Gab has been leading the way with exposing the double standards, hypocrisy, and mass censorship of Big Social Media companies in Silicon Valley. We’ve told you about shadow-banning, hypocritical one-sided rule enforcement, unfair treatment of conservatives and Trump supporters, and one-sided political agendas being pushed by these multi-billion dollar communication platforms that are used by hundreds of millions of people.
Over the last several months we’ve been working closely with Project Veritas to help them infiltrate these big technology companies and expose the mass censorship and corruption happening each and everyday. Thanks to James O’Keefe and his team there is now undeniable proof of Twitter employees admitting that censorship, double standards, and hypocrisy are indeed happening on these platforms.
Olinda Hassan is a Policy Manager for Twitter’s Trust and Safety Team. Her team is responsible for the enforcement of Twitter’s rules and regulation, deciding who and what is allowed to be on the platform. Project Veritas caught her on camera saying this:
PV Journalist: “But how do you keep, like, my timeline… how do you keep certain things off my timeline? People will like retweet people.
Olinda: “We’re trying to down rank it, but you also need to have control of your timeline.”
PV Journalist: I’ve tried to, like block people like Cernovich and stuff like that and mute and stuff like that, but they still show up, like all the time.
Olinda: Yeah. That’s something we’re working on. It’s something we’re working on. We’re trying to get the shitty people to not show up. It’s a product thing we’re working on.”
Some of the other admissions captured by Project Veritas are staggering, and confirm everything that Gab has been saying since August 2016: Silicon Valley is censoring Trump supporters, conservatives, and anyone else they disagree with politically. Here’s a quote from a former member of Twitter’s Content Review Team:
PV Journalist: …a user end services person would deem it: “Pro-Trump,” and take it down?
Mo Norai: Yeah, if they said this is: “Pro-Trump” I don’t want it because it offends me, this, that. And I say I banned this whole thing, and it goes over here and they are like, Oh you know what? I don’t like it too. You know what? Mo’s right, let’s go, let’s carry on, what’s next?
PV Journalist: So, I flag something it’s going to go by you….
Mo Norai: Correct, and they you know you’re looking at it and you’re like: “Oh hey, this is Pro-Trump ….I don’t like it.
The full video is a must watch and you can check it out on Project Vertias’ website here.
You might consider GAB as an alternative – easily found.
This Olinda Hassan by the way, is a Muslim Millennial SJW – what the hell is anyone with those tickboxes doing exerting any influence whatever on Google policy concerning censoring an entire west’s sources?
There are things coming in via our own sources here:
Google, the most powerful search engine in the world, is now displaying fact checks for conservative publications in its results.
No prominent liberal site receives the same treatment.
And not only is Google’s fact-checking highly partisan — perhaps reflecting the sentiments of its leaders — it is also blatantly wrong, asserting sites made “claims” they demonstrably never made.
No surprise to those using Google to search sources relating to politics and scientific/environmental issues — in recent years, the top results have tilted heavily in favour of progressive sources.
More: This is the company that has a near-stranglehold on online advertising and search.
More obliquely, this pdf goes into whether our notion of fair play is embraced by the system at all.
What I didn’t like in this pdf was that he seemed to choose the first of two variants:
1. There is no rule of law with any fairness to it, that’s how things have always been, so wear it or tough luck.
2. There is no rule of law with any fairness to it, that’s how things have always been, so we need to make a huge noise about this and isnist the bastards do as they’e appointed to do.
