For the most part, I try to stay off of social media. While I do admit that I have a social media account, I don’t think I have more than maybe fifteen or so people on it.
They are all people that I have known for years, some going back to high school. My security is locked down like a drum, and I never talk politics.
It’s not that I am on some crusade where I am worried that the First Amendment is being upheld or not, it’s that I don’t want to have to spend every waking minute wondering if I am going to be censored. So, I tend to use it as more of a family newsletter than anything else.
That being said, for those that like to do the other thing there should be nothing standing in your way that keeps you from talking politics. Well, Facebook is making sure that you don’t do that.
In video exposed by Project Veritas, Facebook executives revealed their extreme far-left bias, admit election meddling and their support for Joe Biden’s Presidency. During the nearly hour-long “Q&A session” Zuckerberg and his Executive team gave their justifications of Facebook’s censorship of President Trump and Pro-Trump groups on on the platform and forwarded the false-narrative that Trump incited violence on January 6th.
Zuckerberg said, “Over the last several years we have we’ve allowed the President to use our platform consistent with our own rules and at times we’ve removed content or labeled posts when they violated our policies and we did this all because we believe that the public should have access to the broadest possible amount of political speech and even when it’s even when it’s controversial.
But the current context the world now is fundamentally different involving the President trying to use our platform and others to incite a violent insurrection against a democratically elected government.”

Censoring President Trump Was Just the Start, They Admit to Manipulating Conservatives Everywhere
Facebook already banned “all mentions of ‘stop the steal’ ahead of the inauguration” according to Engadget.
“We are now removing content containing the phrase ‘stop the steal’ under our Coordinating Harm policy from Facebook and Instagram,” Facebook wrote in a statement. “We removed the original Stop the Steal group in November and have continued to remove Pages, groups and events that violate any of our policies, including calls for violence. But with continued attempts to organize events against the outcome of the US presidential election that can lead to violence, and use of the term by those involved in Wednesday’s violence in DC, we’re taking this additional step in the lead up to the inauguration.”
Facebook also stated that “after the inauguration, our label on posts that attempt to delegitimize the election results will reflect that Joe Biden is the sitting president.”
Monika Bickert. Head of Global Policy Management at Facebook explained how the platform is now targeting anyone who posts a positive view of those who participated in “events” of January 6th (including the #StopTheSteal rally, not just the Capitol Breach) or even “praises or supports” them in any sense.
