Facebook is in on The Steal

Facebook's intervention in U.S. election politics is not exactly a surprise, of course:

Facebook Inc. is tightening its grip on speech across its platforms, invoking some of the emergency measures that executives previously described as their “break glass” options to respond to postelection unrest.

The company announced temporary measures to limit the spread of false and possibly dangerous content late on Thursday, hours after it took down a fast-growing group called “Stop the Steal” that was organizing protests of vote counts around the country.

If you're still on Facebook, then I really don't know what to tell you. You're like an animal that voluntarily straps on its own muzzle. And before the first moron tries to respond "but... but YOU'RE on Blogger", please feel free to point to the evidence, any evidence at all, that a single one of my millions of words posted here has ever been censored in any way.

Note, Facebook never once made efforts to shutdown Antifa or BLM organizing for violent protests over the summer. They don't care about violent protests. They care about protests that oppose their viewpoints.

Unfortunately, I know people in other countries with less technological know-how who can only manage to use Facebook for text/video communications. Build your own platforms...

It's okay, I'm sure barr is monitoring the situation. I don't understand why Trump failed to reign in the tech companies over the past four years.

I read the title of this post as "Some Jews are in on the Steal."

Then I read it again to make sure I wasn't mistaken.

Nope, no mistake.

For all that matters Facebook also never did anything to stop ISIS recruitment.

Building your own platform isn't going to be enough. Manage your own content then send it out on whatever platforms suit you. Sometimes that's going to be Facebook but I suspect that their appeal is going to grow more selective over time. If your content is the center of your communications world, no matter what platform gets corrupted, you can easily work around censorship because all of your stuff is still there, still under control.

Essentially we're looking at a better version of Hootsuite.

Everyone would be a lot better off just by starting to ask questions of our antagonists instead of coming here with oh woes and crap. I get the right wing tough talk but since when has that ever actually challenged the authority of the "system?"

Any excuse for still using Facebook is wrong on the face of it. Starve them out. Do not give them your eyeballs, friends, or business. This is war. Act like it.

They hate you, your vote, and everything you stand for. Return the favor and act.

Decision Desk has just called for Joe Biden as the winner in PA, hence the presidency (273). Interesting development. https://results.decisiondeskhq.com/

Anything around guns is getting squeezed. Am on a group based on a small publisher, lot of mil veterans (the authors all are) full of people mostly joking around. They've got a lot of 'fact checking' lately and the moderators are going to shut it down as FB is putting on the squeeze that they have to hand curate every comment. <-- This is how they're finishing off congregations of badthinkers. This one was just locker room humor but I think they don't like it being full of gun people/vets.

@VD - I'd like to hear if there's any merit to doing "missionary" work incursions into enemy territory, even without it being our home base. I.e. to be a 'russian bot' in the current vernacular.

Satan's plan for this election:
Have the entire media lie about Biden's popularity, when it's impossible for him to have more enthusiasm or support than Barack Obama, whom many republicans voted for, and drew some of the biggest crowds America has ever seen
Have the entire media lie about how well Biden is doing in fake polls
Inject illegal votes into states they were furious about losing in 2016 until Biden is ahead
Say that this was the expected outcome

The flaw in this plan is that Trump exists, and will fight this until he gets rid of these cheating demon-worshipers.

@TPhillips

Trump also self-sabotaged by declaring a Nat'l Emergency because of CoronaHoax. That provided the justification for mass mail-in-voting which the Democrats are using to blatantly steal the election. Trump is either not very bright or he was playing for the other team all along.

When Q said "These people are stupid", one wonders who he was actually referring to...

2016 proved beyond any reasonable doubt, even to the peasantry who wouldn't take decades of hints, that the rulers don't give a rat's ass about how the peasants vote. 2020 reveals the rulers' confidence in the peasantry's radical submissiveness and fanatical passivity.

Will we ever prove them wrong?

In this land of "living law", the same as every other; the momentary, feral whims of judicial racketeers is the "law". Why do we keep pretending we don't know this?

On Twitter the account of Carlos Osweda is suspended. Does anyone know what thought crime he wrote or a way to still hear his views?

Blogger InTheLimbo November 06, 2020 10:18 AM  

He who controls the flow of information wins the war, eventually. When you're in a position where the POTUS is being 'fact-checked' and censored by angry blue haired woman with a penis at Twitter, and that's your main means of communication, you have lost.
Trump let the enemy (Facebook, Twitter, MSM, etc.) grow within and control the power of his weapons, he (and any other dissenting voices) can only say what those who control these channels permit. The extent of censorship increased over time, at first there was an attempt from those platforms to still have plausible deniability, but for some time now that's not even a concern anymore.
Unless most of the population completely changes how or where they get their 'information' (and that's the same as saying 'who tells them how to vote'), the war is not winnable. Things shift though, and that can happen. For now though, the control is only increasing, as the digital tentacles penetrate deeper into rural/traditional communities.
It's comical how growing up in a country where I had access to only ONE government controlled TV channel, I know I had access to more reliable information than today.
This is not a hopeless situation though, the tactical field can change more rapidly than ever.

#9 TMLutas especially the tweet sized messages, be kind of cool to have a program that you type out a message then click the boxes for which services to use.

The YT gun channels talk about a Admiral Akbar trap, give it a year and I doubt the youtubers will be able to show a picture of a gun much less manipulate a gun on a vid. And a many of the tubers are setting themselves up with Patreon, we'll see how that goes.

I don't know of any Republicans who don't use Facebook. They are surprised when they find I don't use it. Most people aren't philosophic aboutthese things. They just want to have fun. That is a big reason the Trump rallies were so huge. They are fun

Blogger Trid November 06, 2020 11:08 AM  

Not to speak for the big man himself but there's been no real difficulties using blogger and needlessly swapping platforms would take a lot of time and energy for little payback. I think VD has mentioned before that there are fallback plans if VP gets disappeared, so there's no pressing need to affect a change.

I don't know what software the Arkhaven blog runs on, but that might be in the wings ready.

I have to admit I was on FaceBook until recently when, in addition to everything Vox said about it and my own experiences, I read Tucker Carlson’s Ship of Fools where he also was explaining how abusive the company is. That finally pushed me over the edge and I haven’t used it in 2 months now.

I did, however, just subscribe to Unauthorized, and I hope to soon be using SocialGalactic.

I am using it constantly.

Not to change anybody's mind or get things "organized" I'm using to put a strain on FACEBOOKS whole system.

It takes resources to step on this many fires all at once. Even if those resources are automatic it puts a strain on their whole system.

Until they purge you, you are getting free use of their bandwidth and server space, rather than paying for all that yourself.

Blogger eclecticme November 06, 2020 6:35 PM  

I believe both Andrew Yang and Kim Iversen self identify as progressives.
Yang recently said that the Dems are now the party of the bi-coastal elite and the rich, as best I recall. He said the Dems have abandoned the working class.

Kim Iversen does her own research and bases her conclusions on facts rather than coming to the conclusion first. She recently discovered that Dems were in favor of MORE media censorship, not less. She was shocked to learn that. She has been demonetized on occasion for telling the truth. She said she would never vote for a democrat again. She was pissed. She probably did not mean it but her statement was not nothing. She is not a Trump but said a Biden win means more wars.

At least some liberal independent thinkers are waking up.

I was very recently to leave FB when a friend of mine got cancer and needed blood donations. I donated for him and then thought how many like him would be? It will not save lives, it will make their deaths less painful. Sometimes it will save a life.

So I went to a group in FB for blood donations. Well, I will delete all my postings on this platform and will use FB just for some causes like that.
