US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo conducted a five star trolling of China Tuesday by posting a picture of himself meeting with with Tiananmen Square survivors and pro-Democracy activists.
A day before the 31st anniversary of the Tiananmen Square protests of 1989, Pompeo noted that the government in Hong Kong will not allow an annual vigil to go ahead.
“It starts; so soon,” Pompeo tweeted. “For the first time in 30 years, Hong Kong authorities denied permission to hold the Tiananmen Vigil. If there is any doubt about Beijing’s intent, it is to deny Hong Kongers a voice and a choice, making them the same as mainlanders. So much for two systems.”

Hong Kong authorities are using the excuse of the coronavirus to deny any gathering.
Pompeo was pictured with Wang Dan, Su Xiaokang, Liane Lee, and Henry Li – four Tiananmen Square protesters.

Chinese nationals have no way of learning about Anti-Communist Party protests and the Tiananmen Square massacre inside their own country.
About Tiananmen Incident. China reported 319 deaths.
However, some say that there are hundreds to tens of thousands of deaths.
China has closed the speech of 8964. So later people can not learn from the case.
It is also a loss for China.#Tiananmen

The only way they can learn about it is by visiting other countries and reading:

The CCP system is so insidious that even those doing the censoring have to learn in secret about what really happened so they know what to censor for their fellow citizens:
Twitter Censors, Locks Breitbart’s Account Over Pro-HCQ Doctor’s Livestream
“Tweets with the video are in violation of our Covid-19 misinformation policy.”
Twitter continued to crack down on anyone sharing the viral video of a group of doctors touting hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) as a Covid-19 “cure” Tuesday, removing a tweet containing a link to the video by Breitbart News and locking the outlet’s account.
Breitbart announced that its video of America’s Frontline Doctors was removed from Twitter with the justification from the platform that “tweets with the video are in violation of our Covid-19 misinformation policy.”
“Footage of the livestream on Periscope, Twitter’s livestreaming platform, had generated 1 million views before being removed by the site.” Breitbart noted.
The outlet added that “Footage on Facebook had accumulated over 17 million views within 8 hours and had 185,000 concurrent viewers at the time it was streamed.”
“On YouTube, a clip from the event received 80,000 views before being removed by the platform for ‘violating YouTube’s Community Guidelines.'” the report added.
Breitbart then found that its Twitter account had been “limited” as a punishment for “violating the policy on spreading misleading an potentially harmful information related to COVID-19”:
Twitter also censored Donald Trump Jr.’s account after he shared the America’s Frontline Doctors video.

Google Search Blacklists Major Conservative Websites in New Censorship Purge
Breitbart, Daily Caller, Human Events & Infowars all disappear from search results.
Google search has blacklisted numerous major conservative websites by removing them from results in what appears to be a major new censorship purge.
Breitbart, the Daily Caller, Infowars, Human Events and Red State are all missing when a user searches directly for those websites on Google.com.
Some of the sites have small link from their Wikipedia bio on the right hand side, but are absent from main search results.
Searches for direct headlines from the same outlets also return either nothing or links to corporate media news stories.
Some of them have small website links in the Wikipedia info bubble that displays on the right-hand side (not all of them), but this is how other outlets look in comparison pic.twitter.com/CpdQpH75ue

The fact that the purge has happened less than four months before the presidential election once again makes a mockery of Google’s claim to be non-bias.
Back in 2018, Google CEO Sundar Pichai responded to claims that staff had gamed search results to display a pro-immigration bias by asserting, “We do not bias our products to favor any political agenda.”
During a subsequent House Judiciary Committee, Pichai again claimed that Google’s policy was non-partisan.
With Google apparently blacklisting a raft of major conservative websites, those claims now appear to be farcical.
We shouldn’t be too shocked however given that during Google’s first all-staff meeting following the 2016 election, the company vowed to do everything in its power to stop Trump winning again.

CNN Annoyed That Twitter Hasn’t Censored Trump More
“Rigid rules like these give Trump an opening to spread his harmful messaging.”
CNN is pissed that Twitter has not more aggressively censored posts by The President of the United States, complaining that the platform’s ‘fact check’ rules are ‘too rigid’ and “allow Trump to continue spreading false information about the election.”
Writer Marshall Cohen notes that while Twitter initially censored Trump back in May, “seven weeks later, and after a dozen similarly untruthful tweets from the President, that extraordinary step by Twitter looks more like a one-time aberration than the new normal.”
Twitter’s narrow fact-checking rules — labeling state-specific election misinformation but tolerating similar false claims on a national scale — allows Trump’s most brazen lies to flourish, undermining public confidence in the 2020 election. My latest: https://t.co/mSyOXmFEE9
— Marshall Cohen (@MarshallCohen) July 15, 2020
Cohen further complains that Trump has used the phrase “rigged election” five times in recent posts “Yet, Twitter took no action”.
“Rigid rules like these give Trump an opening to spread his harmful messaging about fraudulent elections — unencumbered — even if his posts are filled with debunked allegations and rumors,” Cohen whines.
Cohen seems to advocate that Twitter should move “into a position they’ve resisted since their inception,” that being “deciding what is true and false.”
Cohen further suggested that the news emerging concerning the huge hack of Twitter is connected to Trump spreading “Threats, vulnerabilities, viral misinfo, etc.”
My story this morning — highlighting how Trump exploits loopholes in Twitter's election misinformation policy — seems like a distant memory after the Great Twitter Hack of July 2020. But it's all connected: Threats, vulnerabilities, viral misinfo, etc. https://t.co/bsGbsoKv9l

Twitter's fact-check rules can't be all that rigid. It allows CNN to have an account and tweet.
