Zuckerberg is jumping for joy, as Joe Biden managed to pull off the biggest heist in history.
Thus, the Facebook CEO blocked Trump’s Facebook and Instagram accounts “indefinitely,” insisting Trump won’t regain access before Biden’s inauguration.
Here’s Lefty’s explanation:
“We believe the risks of allowing the President to continue to use our service during this period are simply too great,” Zuckerberg said in a statement Thursday. “Therefore, we are extending the block we have placed on his Facebook and Instagram accounts indefinitely and for at least the next two weeks until the peaceful transition of power is complete.”
Of course this directly contradicts Zuckerberg’s statement from just a few hours earlier.
According to Fox News:
Zuckerberg’s statement came after Facebook had initially told Fox News that Trump would regain access to his Facebook Thursday night after he was temporarily suspended due to policy violations.
The president’s account was suspended after posting a video telling protesters who stormed the Capitol Building, erupting in violent protests which led to multiple deaths, to “go home,” while maintaining that the 2020 presidential election was “stolen” from him.
Zuckerberg, in the statement, said that “last 24 hours clearly demonstrate that President Donald Trump intends to use his remaining time in office to undermine the peaceful and lawful transition of power to his elected successor, Joe Biden.”
“His decision to use his platform to condone rather than condemn the actions of his supporters at the Capitol building has rightly disturbed people in the US and around the world,” Zuckerberg wrote. “We removed these statements yesterday because we judged that their effect — and likely their intent — would be to provoke further violence.”
Zuckerberg added that the “priority for the whole country must now be to ensure that the remaining 13 days and the days after inauguration pass peacefully and in accordance with established democratic norms.”
“Over the last several years, we have allowed President Trump to use our platform consistent with our own rules, at times removing content or labeling his posts when they violate our policies,” he continued. “We did this because we believe that the public has a right to the broadest possible access to political speech, even controversial speech.”
He added: “But the current context is now fundamentally different, involving use of our platform to incite violent insurrection against a democratically elected government.”
Facebook Reigns Supreme
Zuckerberg makes it seem as though his goal is to protect America. But his actions don’t truly convey that. Perhaps I could overlook Facebook’s decision to censor the president, but Zuckerberg seeks to silence conservatism. And that’s a direct violation of the constitution.
In fact, for the past four years, I’ve personally witnessed Facebook’s personal attack on free speech. It started when they pegged one article after another, labeling them “Fake News.”
For example, Kevin Jackson penned an article regarding climate change. The primary message of the article was this:
A new scientific study could bust wide open deeply flawed fundamental assumptions underlying controversial climate legislation and initiatives such as the Green New Deal, namely, the degree to which ‘climate change’ is driven by natural phenomena vs. man-made issues measured as carbon footprint.
Scientists in Finland found “practically no anthropogenic [man-made] climate change” after a series of studies.
Obviously, there is a huge divide between the left and the right, especially when it comes to climate change. But leftists constantly demand we rely on science to form philosophies. And the second we offer up science that contradicts their ideology, we are silenced. And that article is case in point. After publishing it, the article was labeled fake. There is absolutely NO process to appeal the FB decision. Then, our page faced reduced distribution.
For months, The Black Sphere rebuked false news labels, carefully providing research to back our writings while also clarifying that anything we write is clearly our own opinions. What we do is known as commentary. You can take it or leave it. But the disclaimer was never enough. So, last time Friday the 13th rolled around, our page was UNPUBLISHED.
And it wasn’t just The Black Sphere. Facebook also attacked Kevin Jackson Radio. Then we read that hundreds of conservative sites shared our fate, such as our friends over at Stop the Destruction of the American Dream and Think American. Still, we are fighting for the return of our platform. The Black Sphere still had more than 600,000 followers the day Facebook hit the kill switch. And that’s after four years of silent maneuvers against us, such as removing followers or hiding articles. So, we know Facebook’s Trump attack is simply censorship. Propaganda meant to brainwash the masses.
Facebook used a video to justify their actions.
Facebook first flagged the video, and then removed it altogether, before locking the president’s account due to “two policy violations.” Trump lost the ability to post on Facebook during the “feature block.”
In the president’s video, addressing supporters, he said: “I know your pain, I know your hurt.”
“We had an election that was stolen from us,” Trump said in the video taped from the White House. “It was a landslide election and everyone knows it, especially the other side.”
He added: “But you have to go home now. We have to have peace, we have to have law and order we have to respect our great people in law and order. We don’t want anyone hurt.”
The president went on to say that it is a “very tough period of time — there has never been a time like this where such a thing happened, where they could take it away from all of us — from me, from you, from our country.”
“This was a fraudulent election, but we can’t play into the hands of these people,” Trump said. “We have to have peace.”
Trump added: “So go home, we love you, you’re very special, you’ve seen what happens, you’ve seen the way others are treated that are so bad, so evil. I know how you feel.”
“But go home and go home in peace,” he said.
Essentially, Trump spoke up to end the violence. And the left still scolded him. Eventually, Instagram and Twitter chimed in. But, these social media giants are missing one essential element of conservatism.
We use our voice. Conservatives will leave the mainstream social media platforms. And the lost revenue will slap those like Zuckerberg in the face. Like Macy’s found out shortly after Trump’s inauguration, conservatives spend their money where their views are validated. And those who don’t respect that get to post “Out of Business” signs on their doors.
Like Trump recently said:
“Twitter’s bad news,” Trump said. “They’re all bad news. If you want to go through social media, Big Tech, if you’re a Republican or have a big voice, they shadow ban you.”
He added: “And it should be illegal.”
I have a feeling this won’t end well for the social media giants.
