Global food and body care giant Unilever is joining the fight against what they call fake news.
The company that owns such brands as Ben & Jerry's, Dove and Axe says they will be withholding their advertising dollars from platforms such as Facebook, YouTube, and Twitter until those social media sites start censoring content that Unilever says “creates division” and “promotes anger and hate".
And it looks like they have federal environment Minister Catherine McKenna's official endorsement in their effort to help her and the liberal Government’s recently announced attempt to force Facebook to silence their political enemies online.
She sent out the following supportive tweet:
“Unilever will not invest in platforms or environments that do not protect our children, or which create division in society or promote anger or hate.”
Watch my video to find out why I think it's so ironic that the environment Minister would throw her support behind a company like Unilever.
Like the recent spate of sexual harassers who spent the last six months professing their own male feminism, this latest announcement by Unilever is just a pathetic attempt to use virtue-signalling to whitewash their own terrible history.
