As our nation stands ready to cleave itself in half in a fit of racial rage, politics have become an intrinsic part of our identity these days.
It didn’t used to be like this. There was a point not long ago in which it was considered improper to discuss politics publicly. Now, people seem to wear their party affiliation like a badge of pride, both online and in real life.
This means that social media is a breeding ground for both vibrant discussions on the subject of politics, and for abject hatred. This has kept these media magnates on their toes, as they tend to prefer their overall output to trend far to the left. In order to maintain this slant, they are using any excuses that they can to silence conservatives.
And they’ll even admit to it when they don’t think that you are looking.
A top Facebook moderator boasted that she purposely targets and “deletes” Trump supporter profiles from the platform, accusing them of being terrorists, new undercover video shows.
The undercover video released by Project Veritas further confirms what conservatives have known for years: Facebook is deliberately targeting them, censoring them, or shadowbanning them simply for their political views, not because they violate some sort of policy.
“If someone is wearing a MAGA hat, I am going to delete them for terrorism and I’m just going to like go crazy,” says Facebook content moderator Lara Kontakos. “I think we are all doing that.”
And there’s more!
Another content moderator echoed that sentiment.
“Yes! I don’t give no f*cks, I’ll delete it,” she said.
The same woman said she deliberately leaves up anti-Trump content even if it clearly violates Facebook’s terms of service.
“You gotta take it down but I leave it up,” she added. “If you see something that’s not supposed to be up, it’s probably me.”
Half a dozen other content moderators caught on video admitted they also arbitrarily delete or censor Trump supporters, with one moderator quipping that they “should be put on a watchlist” for supporting President Trump.
The video is a must see.
