Big Brother Facebook Will Geographically Censor Minneapolis After Chauvin Verdict


Facebook’s power truly knows no bounds, and the latest declaration from the social media platform may be one of their most disturbing yet.

The company has said this week that they will be specifically targeting posts in the geographical vicinity of Minneapolis, hoping to keep a keen eye on any calls for violence that may come in the wake of the Derek Chauvin trial’s outcome.

Facebook officials say they are preparing for the verdict in the trial of Derek Chauvin and will be removing content that calls for violence in Minneapolis.

According to Facebook, Minneapolis has been deemed a “high-risk location” due to the events surrounding the trial and potential outcome.

“Our teams are working around the clock to look for potential threats both on and off of Facebook and Instagram so we can protect peaceful protests and limit content that could lead to civil unrest or violence,” said Monika Bickert, vice president of content policy at Facebook.

Of course, there is no justification for violence, but there is also no jurisdiction here for Facebook.

This is a company who makes their money by harvesting your data, and then selling it to advertisers who use that information to target your wallet.  They have no pride, no dignity, and no shame, and for these social media mavens to claim that they have a right to arbitrarily target the content that keeps them afloat is simply unconscionable.
