Facebook Censorship Council Includes Pro-Muslim Brotherhood Activist

So independent!

Facebook’s new censorship council, which will decide what content gets deleted from the website, includes a pro-Muslim Brotherhood Yemeni activist.

“The independent board, which will be able to overturn Facebook and its CEO Mark Zuckerberg’s decisions on whether individual pieces of content should be allowed on Facebook and Instagram, is a high-profile response to criticism of how the social media company handles problematic content,” reported Channel News Asia.

The “oversight board” will include none other than Nobel Laureate Tawakkol Karman, the Yemeni woman who became one of the faces of the Arab Spring uprising in 2011.

Karman’s activism includes supporting the Muslim Brotherhood, an Islamist organization that has been blamed for terrorist attacks.

Karman previously denounced arrests of Muslim Brotherhood members and opposed the move to bar the Muslim Brotherhood from participating in Egyptian politics.

In Yemen, the Muslim Brotherhood is led by Abdul Majeed al-Zindani, a Sunni Islamist viewed by the United States as a “Bin Laden loyalist” and someone who is listed as a “Specially Designated Global Terrorist” by the US Treasury Department.

No doubt Karman’s tolerance for allowing criticism of Islam on Facebook’s platform will be in short supply.

As we highlighted earlier this week, another one of Facebook’s censorship czars is none other than anti-Trump Professor Pamela Karlan.

Karlan made a name for herself because of a rant at the impeachment hearings during which she made Barron Trump the punch line of a joke.

Karlan was also described by the New York Times as a “full-throated, unapologetic liberal torchbearer.”

These are the people who will be deciding whether your Facebook posts violate the social media network’s increasingly draconian rules.

FCC Commissioner Brendan Carr responded to the announcement of the oversight board by slamming it as a partisan fraud.

“Meet your new speech police,” said Carr. “Facebook now has an Oversight Board empowered to take down posts.”

“Gotta be non-partisan people, right? Nope! 1 is Pam Karlan: testified to impeach @POTUS, “baron” Trump line, Obama DOJ, & NYT calls ‘full-throated, unapologetic liberal torchbearer.'”

“Facebook’s decision undermines its claim that posts won’t be censored for partisan political reasons. Karlan testified that ‘President Trump must be held to account.’ She wrote *in 2016* that she felt ‘a responsibility to challenge [Trump] in the court of public opinion.'”

Danish Authorities Shut Down Access to Bitchute Over “Dangerous” COVID-19 Information

Communist Chinese-style state censorship run rampant.

Authorities in Denmark have shut down much of the country’s access to video platform Bitchute in the name of preventing the spread of “dangerous information” about COVID.

Denmark’s National Police Cyber Crime Center (NC3) petitioned for a court order to block the site and ISPs followed suit by blocking access to users.

“The National Police Cyber Crime Center (NC3) has blocked the homepage that your browser has tried to access contact as there is reason to assume that from the website commits a violation of criminal law, which has a background in or connection with the covid-19 epidemic in Denmark,” states a message users see when trying to access Bitchute.

It then advises the owner of the website that they will have to contact the authorities in order to try to get the website back online.

“The block appears to be site-wide meaning that Danish citizens aren’t just being prevented from viewing alleged COVID-19 misinformation on BitChute – they’re being blocked from viewing any BitChute videos, regardless of the topic,” writes Tom Parker.

Bitchute is routinely targeted by governments because it provides a platform for controversial content that isn’t permitted on YouTube.

Some ISPs in Australia previously tried to block the site, while Twitter blocked people from posting Bitchute links on its platform last year.

Authorities in the UK and the EU are also trying to get the site shut down, claiming it engages in “incitement to hatred.”

Advocates of social media censorship routinely claim that free speech isn’t under assault because people can simply ‘build their own platforms’.

Yet when an entity like Bitchute does just that, they are targeted for elimination by the state.

This is straight up Communist Chinese-style totalitarianism, but what makes it worse is its timing.

As we’ve learned in recent weeks, by censoring “misinformation” about the Wuhan lab leak theory which could turn out to have been true all along, social media networks may have been complicit in facilitating one of the biggest cover-ups in modern history.

So for Danish authorities to target Bitchute for the exact same reason is yet another chilling example of the danger of allowing corporate and government entities to define the boundaries of acceptable speech and literally dictate reality.

Vox Stealth Edits March 2020 Article “Debunking” Lab Origin of COVID

Media outlets desperately start to backpedal.

Published

on

Left-wing website website Vox has been caught stealth editing an old article from March 2020 “debunking” the lab origin of COVID following numerous prominent officials now saying the lab origin is a distinct possibility.

Writer and investor Paul Graham documented the edits, tweeting, “Some of the stealth edits that Vox made to its article debunking “conspiracy theories” that Covid-19 originated in a lab leak between its original publication in March 2020 and now.”

The edits include removing the words that the virus definitively did “not come from the Wuhan lab” and saying that the fact the virus emerged in the same city in which the lab is located “appears to be pure coincidence” rather than the previously more definitive “is pure coincidence.”

“Vox is editing it articles “debunking” the coronavirus lab leak theory. These edits aren’t being disclosed to readers,” tweeted Mike Cernovich. “Vox is a disinformation website.”

As we highlighted earlier, new information based on a US intelligence report reveals that three researchers at the Wuhan Institute of Virology became so sick in November 2019 that they required hospital treatment.

This followed Dr. Anthony Fauci acknowledging for the first time that the origin of COVID-19 “could have been something else, and we need to find that out.”

Last week, Biden’s CDC Director said she remained open to the possibility that the virus was leaked from the Wuhan lab and scientific groups have also asserted that the lab leak is the most likely source.

Following the bolstering of the possibility that the virus was leaked from the lab, Politifact was also forced to pull a ‘fact check’ that claimed it had “debunked” the lab leak origin theory of COVID-19.

For over a year, social media networks have characterized the lab leak theory as “misinformation” and removed it under the umbrella of “fake news.”

Now that more and more evidence continues to drop that such “conspiracy theories” were actually not only plausible but quite possibly true, the backpedaling continues apace.

TikTok Censors Videos That Made Fun of Dr. Fauci

No laughs allowed.

Published

on

Video Screenshot

TikTok has deleted several viral videos by a comedian who made fun of Dr. Fauci by performing satirical impressions of the epidemiologist.

Tyler Fischer’s impressions went viral on the app but several of the videos were deleted after apparently violating “community guidelines.”

“My Fauci impressions are starting to be removed from TikTok for breaking “community guidelines,” tweeted Fischer. “Censorship causes extremism, cause now I have to go do my impressions door to door like a psychopath.”

In one of the impressions, Fischer mocked Fauci’s pedantic rhetoric on mask wearing.

“I’d say even if you live alone, I would wear a mask in the house, especially in the shower,” Fischer said. “Because, frankly, droplets can make their way through the drain, and come up through somebody else’s toilet, infecting them through the anus.”

The deletions are unsurprising given that the Beijing-linked app is easily the most censorious out of all the major networks.

Fischer’s impressions are still available on Twitter and YouTube, at least for the time being.

As we highlight in the video below, TikTok has become the primary platform for members of the COVID cult to perform their neurotic, cringeworthy denunciations and celebrations of the vaccine, as well as their religious worship of Fauci himself.
