The attack on free speech has ramped up to a whole new level. Conservatives have been under fire for the last 8 years ever since Barack Hussein Obama became president. Obama has created an atmosphere of hate that allows the left to continually attack anyone with a dissenting opinion. With this past election and the stakes higher than ever, conservatives were more than determined to make sure we did not lose this time around.
Thankfully, Donald Trump did win, but the victory was short-lived for Trump supporters. The left which was left reeling from such a tremendous loss, could not fathom how “Queen” Clinton could lose. The left has blamed everything from the Russians to Fox News, but the biggest one was “Fake News.”
CEO Mark Zuckerberg then became the target as the left continued to look for a scapegoat. Facebook received harsh criticism for its supposed role in spreading political misinformation during the US presidential election. So, in order to appease the left, Zuckerberg has made the controversial decision to put “warning labels” on “fake news”.
Oh, you read that right, and that is not all there is.
Facebook will empower Snopes, the ultra biased “fact checking” site to do its well, fact checking. Kim Lacapria, Snopes’ main political “fact checker,” describes herself as “openly left-leaning” and a liberal. She has previously equated Tea Party conservatives with jihadists.
Lacapria will always defend her liberal buddies no matter what the crime is. A perfect example of this is when the Orlando nightclub was attacked earlier this year. This woman that argued that Omar Mateen was not a democrat, even after public records showed that he indeed was one.
However, Snopes is not the only ones they will use to determine what is real and what is fake.
This is what Business Insider had to say:
“To combat fake news, Facebook has partnered with a shortlist of media organizations, including Snopes and ABC News, that are part of an international fact-checking network lead by Poynter, a nonprofit school for journalism located in St. Petersburg, Florida,”
So what this means is that as Facebook users and conservatives our time has come to a close, and this is how. The network they are devising will now flag stories and the URL of websites that they deem to be fake and then push them to the bottom of the newsfeed. Which means anyone with a dissenting opinion or site that desires to seek the truth will be pushed out.
What is also troubling about this is that this is stomping on freedom of speech. No one is saying that there is not “fake news” out there, and those who wish to scam people, but this is not what they are doing.
The left had to concoct a way to stifle our conservative voices, and it looks like they found it. By silencing those that oppose the liberal agenda will no longer be able to be heard on sites like Facebook.
I don’t know about you, but it looks like we all need to get the hell off of here. What do you think?
