Yesterday, July 1, Facebook, in conjunction with a group called ” Living After Hate,” launched a new kind of pop up warning. Here is a picture of one them:
Interesting, isn’t it? A post to remind Facebook subscribers that someone they know just might be an extremist. Then our Facebook friends offer us advice about how to determine if someone is an “extremist” and how they can help their friend.
In this link, you see a different post that has a slightly different message:
This post tells subscribers that there are “extremists” out there who are trying to manipulate them and make them angry. Let’s see, would that be Antifa and BLM? Environmental extremist groups? Jihadists? Nope. Facebook is looking at ONE kind of “extremist.” They are even working with a group called “Life After Hate.” It’s a non-profit group run by a former skin head who has “reformed’ and a variety of other domestic terrorism “experts.” They were given $400,000 by the Obama administration and then DHS gave them $750,000 in September, 2020.
If you go to their website and read their information, you’ll find that almost every person listed as running the organization claims a focus on extremism by white supremacists. Nowhere on their site does the group discuss any other domestic terrorists, you know, the ones who have actually committed acts of terrorism.
I wonder why that is? Is it because it’s not the cool thing to do? Is it because they are “woke?” Why do they consciously ignore the violence perpetrated by the groups not mentioned on their site even though they say:
“Our vision, is a world that allows people to change and contribute to a society without violence.” They go on to say that “It was these principles that guided us away from lives of hate and that drive us to help individuals exit hate groups today and to support those who have already left.”
Founded in 2011, they say that their “primary goal is to interrupt violence committed in the name of ideological or religious beliefs” and they they “do this through education, interventions, academic research, and outreach.”
Sounds great, right? But, if you read everything they write, you’ll be struck by the fact that many different groups are listed as targets of domestic extremists and they are dedicated to stopping that for each one. Every group except one. Can you guess what it is? I’ll bet you can. White people, apparently, are never victims of domestic extremists.
This action by FACEBOOK and the involvement of this group that supposedly is against hate is all about silencing dissent against the Marxist platform. They talk about making things better, but their real goal is to get rid of the voices that disagree. Again, they reveal themselves to be opposed to freedom.
I want you to remember that a couple of months ago, the DOJ, FBI, and other government agencies requested that social media companies help them track down “extremists” using the posts of their customers. And let’s not forget that the NSA has recently been caught spying on Tucker Carlson.
Oh, and didn’t the FBI create fake evidence against a political candidate who eventually won the Presidency?
If social media companies are going to make it their mission to spy on people, report people, coerce and extort people to do what the government wants, it’s time to take a hard look at the monopoly that they have over social media. They need to be broken up in the same way AT&T was broken up decades ago.
And we need to keep warning people about the tyranny of Zuckerburg and his gang.
Their little warnings are not going to impede my free speech. And if you are a person who will “report” those who say things you don’t like, watch out. What goes against us now, will go against you later. It happens in every single totalitarian government.
Oh, and by the way, Facebook, this pop up goes against MY community standards. I don’t permit posts that encourage people to report other people for thinking freely.
