Facebook targets conservatives with 3000 new censorship squad members

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

On last night's show, I reported on Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg's decision to hire 3000 "reviewers" to join his censorship squad.

After being blacklisted by dinosaurs in the mainstream media, conservatives have used social media platforms like Facebook, YouTube, and Twitter to promote their views. But Zuckerberg want's to put an end to that.

He claims these new "reviewers" will enable Facebook to remove "hate speech and child exploitation". These two things have nothing in common and it's just Zuckerberg's way of hiding his intention to silence conservatives.

Continued: Through censorship Zuckerberg is smoothing the road to tyranny.

What these elitists don’t know from history is: the intellectuals are the first to be purged by the party leaders. Teachers and entrepreneurs went first under Stalin, Mao, Pol Pot, Castro and Kim Jong-Il.
When a one party system, in control of the media eventually morphs into a dictatorship, as they inevitably do, any possible rivals must go.

“Sugar Mountain” of all people should realize that given today’s digital universe, “somebody” will find a way around his censorship wall as quickly as a desert rainfall finds its way around around the last storm’s sand dike… The omniscience of Facebook is illusory…

Ron Joseph: good point

Iain Foulds: but George Soros is trying to buy CNN. If it’s bad now, just imagine what it could be like!

I saw that Facebook was heading in the censorship direction and withdrew my account. They were harassing me about a pseudonym while half or more of the people there use one. They wanted to identify me, it seems. I don’t need a site that denies you the same privilege of many, many other users, they had no place to complain, so I left and have never, for one day, missed it. Thanks Rebel, you are light in a dark tunnel for conservatives.

Hey advertisers, these services are blacklisting people with jobs and disposable income and many of them pay for their kids purchases, what part of that logic evades you?

Sadly these progressive twats think this gives them power over us ,it does not. They arrogantly think people cannot live without their services. I seem to be doing fine. Cuckerberg is a scumbag POS, and he can do nothing about my opinion LMAO!

Roman Pietrzak did that already, no one needs any of these companies. They think that people will just stick around and be censored.

To anyone who still uses these sites-What is the point of using censored social media? If you cannot post then what use is the damn site??

This from the same perverts that want users to send nude pictures. Why am I not surprised?

Gab is no problem to use, I cannot compare ti to Twitter or Facebook, because I have never used them. Gab has no censorship but the few times that I have used it, I have never seen anything really bad. I think this will get anyone there who wants to try it out.

MeWe sucks. Can’t even get logged into the damn thing.

To those Conservatives who worry about censorship on Facebook, YouTube and Twitter—and yet do nothing. Type into YouTube ‘de-google-fy yourself’. You will find replacement tips for Facebook, Google and yes even YouTube.

Ex-Facebook President Sean Parker recently said it was designed to exploit human vulnerabilities. As if we hadn’t already figured that out.
It’s too bad so many people are basically gadflies and gossips, because the medium is totally useless and unatractive to people that value their privacy and autonomy from others lives.
Technocrats like Zuckerburg are forming the new oligarchy . They are Techno-garchs. Time to fight back against these arrogont Bizjet elites.

We talk and talk about this censorship problem and do nothing. Not just The Rebel, look at Stefan Molyneux and his 1 million viewers, they have the same concerns.
The center and center right have great power, but we are divided up into small fragments, where as the MSM holds the left together as one.
The owners or decision makers of center right sites have to get together in Canada and the US and form a “Union” where the fragmented power becomes a central place to make decisions. For example, if we were united, a decision might be made to buy a Company like Twitter or start our own independent Social Media Company.
Would the Conservative Party of Canada be boycotting The Rebel if it was in a central unit of 3 million Conservative voters??

… Just checked out Gab social media site. Not quite sure how it works, but it is a good step in the right direction.

… Billy: You would think that those three would recognize the obvious approaching end of CNN, and realize that they are equally insulting and alienating at least half of their clients.
… But no….

Time for free-speech alternatives to Facebook, Twitter, and Youtube. The options are out there, but there needs to be a concerted effort to pick the most ideal programs, advertise them, and for people to actively move over to them.

… As always, the dishonest attacks and attempts of the Left against those who disagree with their ideas will backfire. Watch Facebook wither away like CNN. Welcome new and open social media platforms like Gab…
