Facebook - the biggest communist country in the world!
How Facebook has turned into authoritarian rule!
With more than 2.7 Billion users across its 3 platforms (FB, Instagram and WhatsApp) which would make it the largest country in the world in terms of population, Facebook has tremendous control over the narratives consumed by its users.
Apart from being a platform, Facebook has recently in 2018 instated an “Oversight Board” to act as the Supreme Court of Facebook who are picked by top executives of Facebook and approved by Mr Zuckerberg himself. Pretty good, so far we have an Executive and legislative branch headed by CEO, a Judicial branch and a fact checkers certified through IFCN(International Fact Checking Network) to squash narratives. Let me go through various instances it has abused its position of power as a platform, instead acting as a publisher filtering and censoring contents.
Independent Fact Checking
Before I go through various instances, it is important to note that above mentioned IFCN is a unit of Poynter Institute. The Poynter Institute is in turn funded by Open Society Foundation, which is an organisation founded by George Soros. So who is this George Soros? Soros is a Billionaire who funds far-leftist and progressive causes. He has accused PM Modi of creating “Hindu Nationalist State” and “persecution of Muslims” and has pledged US $ 1 Billion to open a new university to fight leaders who preach nationalism.
So Facebook, which only accepts organisations approved by IFCN, which certifies biased outlets like Alt News which has repeatedly gotten “facts” wrong is supposed to be a neutral platform. Facebook suppressed the video of Fox News host Tucker Carlson’s interview with Dr Li-Meng Yan, who was previously a post-doctoral researcher at the University of Hong Kong School of Public Health, made headlines earlier this year when she claimed to have evidence that the Chinese government was involved in creating Covid-19. Even her twitter account was suspended. All this was based on a false “fact check”. Now since the lab leak theory is the most plausible, and the fact that the Wuhan Institute of Virology is funded by the Chinese Communist Party, makes Facebook - the country, little similar to China.
The so called “Supreme Court of Facebook” upheld President Trump’s suspension gave Facebook 6 months to decide the future of Former President. Recently, Facebook has decided to uphold the ban till 2023. The interesting fact about the Oversight Board is that out the 20 member board, 6 members have voiced support for censorship and demonstrated left-wing bias. Here is an example
So Facebook is punishing the Former President on a matter which is cannot be proved illegitimate in any court in the US while certified terror groups like Hamas and Hezbullah are still free to post on the platform.
Recently, a Facebook data technician Morgan Kahmann released internal documents of Facebook’s “Health Integrity Program” which was designed to target posts and comments which expressed concerns over vaccines.
“True events or facts” that raise concern about Covid vaccinations are fair game to be demoted and hidden -- according to our source -- despite their authenticity or capacity to contribute to the public good.” - Morgan Kahmann to Project Veritas
Morgan was terminated from Facebook shortly after the leak.
Project Veritas had previously released an internal video of Zuckerberg himself expressing concerns over the vaccine.
But I do just want to make sure that I share some caution on this [vaccine] because we just don't know the long-term side effects of basically modifying people's DNA and RNA…basically the ability to produce those antibodies and whether that causes other mutations or other risks downstream. So, there's work on both paths of vaccine development. - Mark Zuckerberg (July 2020)
A few months later, in November, Zuckerberg hosted a public live stream with Dr. Anthony Fauci and contradicted the statement he had made in a private meeting during the summer:
Mark Zuckerberg:“Just to clear up one point, my understanding is that these vaccines do not modify your DNA or RNA. So that’s just an important point to clarify, if I’m getting anything wrong here of course correct me, but just to make that clear…”
Dr. Anthony Fauci:“No, first of all DNA is inherent in your own nuclear cell. Sticking in anything foreign will ultimately get cleared.”
Zuckerberg:“Good, well, I’m glad we cleared that up.”
It is pretty much possible that you might get banned on Facebook for expressing the concerns of Mark himself.
All the above instances barely scratch the surface of communist regime of Facebook. No matter whether you agree with Trump or not, like the vaccine or not, Facebook should not be the one taking the decision to ban the then leader of the free world within minutes or censor what is good for you or not. Every country must regulate Facebook before Facebook takes over their country.
