Russians Under the It Bed By Brian Simpson
The insane campaign by the manic establishment to link Russia to stealing the election from “crooked” Hillary, as Trump put it, by exposing her “crooked” deeds, which apparently she has carte blanche to have done, has gone into overdrive, being essentially institutionalised in Left wing culture.
“Under tremendous pressure from politicians and mainstream media, Facebook and other social networks have turned to purging content, viewpoints and even users that the powers-that-be have declared objectionable.
Still angry over the 2016 US presidential election, Democrats blame social media for giving President Donald Trump and his supporters a voice and claim the likes of Facebook and Twitter have served as platforms for “Russians” to “influence”US public opinion – against Hillary Clinton, that is. Repeatedly told to sort out the “Russians,” Facebook, Twitter and Google have turned to throttling posts, suspending and even banning some users. First it was the “suspected Russian” accounts, based among other things on whether they were posting in Cyrillic. Then they demonetized, throttled and flagged accounts of Trump supporters such as Diamond and Silk. Last week, Facebook, Google, Spotify and several other platforms deleted the accounts of Alex Jones and InfoWars. Who is next? “If people flag them as potential hoaxes, we send those to fact-checkers. And if those fact-checkers say that it is probably false, then we will significantly reduce the distribution of that content,” Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg told Recode, which advocated simply kicking such people off the platform.”
It is a common thread running through articles in this media cycle by writers at this site, that we may be facing the end of the internet for us. Even so, we are ready to go back to the horse and buggy days, and maybe that will not be a disaster, since the electronic world is now so clogged with bs, that seeing a poster or getting a newsletter by post, which can then be scanned and emailed, or if they stop that, passed by hand in secret, may have a special impact, the impact of the oppressed.
