Social media has become an extension of the Democrat Party, I already knew this from my days exposing Black Lives Matter on this platform and having my pots diminished or disappear all together. Now, they’re more blatant with these bs assed labels, their way of censoring, discrediting and punishing anyone who offers a different view or context of current events outside of Democrat group think. Apparently FB is all knowing and their paid ‘fact checkers’ the arbritrars of truth… for everything.
No company is the arbritrar of truth, that’s not how truth works. No one entity owns the truth or gets the final say that the rest of the world has to adhere to. That’s not how free speech works, and fine print in their terms of agreement doesn’t supersede our Constitutional or unalienable rights. If that were the case these rights would no longer exist they would have been ‘fine printed’ out of existence decades ago.
Being a private company isn’t a green light to shit all over the Constitution. These social media platforms operate as a digital version of the public square, for which they receive government protections and perks. If they choose to instead to censor or silence as an extension of the Democrat Party, then give up the protections, truly operate as a private company subjected to private penalty.
These platforms don’t get to have it both says… censor and try to chip away a the credibility of users, then sabotage independent efforts to build off Facebook and Twitter.
The danger of these platforms doesn’t stop there… Or silencing leaders as we saw with Trump. They have access to personal and private information of elected leaders… every post, chat, dm, photo or video, sent or received… how do we know leaders are working in our best interests and not these platforms that could expose them?
