Calls For Facebook to Be Removed From App Store After Revelation Much of Capitol Hill Rioting Was Planned There

Don’t hold your breath.

Some are calling for Facebook to be banned from the app store after a Washington Post report revealed that a great deal of the Capitol Hill riot was planned on Mark Zuckerberg’s platform.

According to the Post, “a growing body of evidence shows that Facebook played a much larger role” in the storming of the building than COO Sharyl Sandberg previously acknowledged.

Sandberg claimed that the events “were largely organized on platforms that don’t have our abilities to stop hate, don’t have our standards and don’t have our transparency.”

However, the Post accused her of “deflecting blame,” enlisting the help of Eric Feinberg, Vice President with the Coalition for a Safer Web, who discovered 128,000 Facebook users still discussing the hashtag #StopTheSteal on Monday.

“Feinberg’s searches for the banned hashtag #StopTheSteal and the affiliated hashtags #DoNotCertify, #WildProtest and #FightForTrump on Facebook and Instagram as recently as Monday revealed hundreds of posts promoting the rally,” states the report.

In addition, as Zero Hedge notes, “Two dozen GOP officials and organizations in at least 12 states coordinated bus trips to the rally via Facebook.”

Federal authorities also revealed that much of the violence was coordinated via Twitter.

This completely contradicts the narrative pushed by the media in the days after the incident that it was largely coordinated via alt-tech websites Parler and Gab.

Amazon terminated its server hosting of Parler last weekend, leaving the site completely offline with no sign of when it will return. This happened after both Google and Apple banned the Parler app from their platform.

Now some are asking (obviously with no expectation whatsoever) whether Google and Apple will hand out a similar punishment to Facebook and Twitter.

Gab founder Andrew Torba echoed the sentiment under a headline that read ‘Gab Calls on Facebook and Twitter to be Banned from App Stores following Capitol Riot’.

“It’s interesting that Twitter remains online and has access to App Stores and Gab does not. The reason is clear: Big Tech has no principles other than its desire to serve the interests of the radical left and the Democratic Party. They can’t say it out loud so they say it with their actions,” he wrote.

Obviously, neither Twitter or Facebook has anything to worry about. Under Section 230, they are not responsible for content posted by users, but apparently Parler and Gab are and must be wiped out of existence.

Facebook Bans Australian Member of Parliament For Anti-Lockdown Posts

MP slams “foreign entity” for silencing an elected representative.

Facebook has banned a page run by an Australian Member of Parliament that had over 100,000 followers over its anti-lockdown content, with MP Craig Kelly questioning how a “foreign entity” should have the power to silence an elected representative.

Kelly, an Independent Australian politician and member for the Division of Hughes in the Australian House of Representatives, ran a page that became popular for challenging the Australian government’s lockdown policy, which has proved to be one of the most draconian in the western world.

Kelly previously quit the Liberal Party back in February after the government apparently told him to “shut up” about his COVID claims and refrain from posting anything further about the issue.

However, he refused to do so despite having already been temporarily suspended by Facebook and continued to challenge the efficacy and legal standing of lockdowns and raise concerns over vaccine side-effects while also questioning the legitimacy of World Health Organization guidelines – leading to a permanent ban.

“Firstly, they refused to tell me what they say is misinformation … I stand 100% by everything I’ve posted. It’s not my random thoughts, it’s backed up by scientific evidence,” said Kelly.

The MP said he was “absolutely outraged” about how a “foreign entity” has the power to silence an elected official and is now working on a bill that would hit Big Tech firms with a $100,000 per day fine for unfairly banning people for political speech.

Facebook responded to criticism over the ban by indicating they didn’t care about the fact that Kelly was an elected representative.

“We don’t allow anyone, including elected officials, to share misinformation about COVID-19 that could lead to imminent physical harm or [misinformation regarding] COVID-19 vaccines that have been debunked by public health experts,” said a statement.

And there you have it. So-called “public health experts” are now gods who wield more power than elected politicians and cannot be criticized or questioned in any way.

Nextdoor Social Media App Warns Users About ‘Racism’ For Typing “All Lives Matter”

“Anti-racism” notification system alerts users to revise their speech.

Published

The newly released Nextdoor social media app warns users that they may be engaging in racism before allowing them to send certain words or phrases, including “all lives matter” and “blue lives matter.”

Yes, really.

Nextdoor, an app that connects neighbors with each other, has introduced a new “anti-racism” notification system that alerts users if they may be about to use offensive or bigoted language.

When the user is about to transmit the thought crime, the app asks them to consider revising their words.

“The new anti-racism notification detects certain phrases such as ‘All Lives Matter’ or ‘Blue Lives Matter,’ and prompts the author to consider editing their post or comment before it goes live,” a Nextdoor spokesperson said.

In a video demonstration for the feature, someone responds to a message about Black Lives Matter by asking, “Why just black lives? I believe all lives matter.”

A warning then pops up which announces “Hold on – the phrase “all lives matter” can be hurtful to people of color. Consider editing before you publish.”

The user in the demonstration then deletes their “all lives matter” message and writes something different to signify compliance.

The company also has a “kindness reminder” feature that “automatically flags offensive or hurtful comments.”

As Christina Maas points out, “Tech platforms are constantly trying to change and mold people’s speech.”

While race grifters and legacy media outlets have tried to brand “all lives matter” a racist dog whistle, its use is widespread.

A survey conducted last year found that a majority of Americans agreed more with the statement “all lives matter” compared to “black lives matter.”

Richard Dawkins Cancelled As 1996 Humanist Of The Year After Tweets About Transgenders 25 YEARS Later

“Regrettably, Richard Dawkins has over the past several years accumulated a history of making statements that use the guise of scientific discourse to demean marginalized groups”

Biologist author Richard Dawkins has been stripped of an honour awarded to him by The American Humanist Association in 1996, following tweets that he says merely called for a discussion on transgender issues.

The AHA issued a statement that claims “Regrettably, Richard Dawkins has over the past several years accumulated a history of making statements that use the guise of scientific discourse to demean marginalized groups, an approach antithetical to humanist values.”

“Consequently, the AHA Board has concluded that Richard Dawkins is no longer deserving of being honored by the AHA, and has voted to withdraw, effective immediately, the 1996 Humanist of the Year award,” the organisation added.

Leaving aside the fact that the honour was awarded TWENTY FIVE years ago, the AHA has not actually provided any specific instances where Dawkins made statements that could be viewed as intentionally demeaning to trans people.

He has previously tweeted regarding transgenderism from a biological science standpoint, which he argues is necessarily in direct opposition to the modern phenomenon of ‘wokeism’:

Most recently, Dawkins compared people identifying as a different gender to their biological gender to Rachel Dolezal, a white woman who identifies as black, and complained that if you ‘deny’ their identity you will be vilified:

The way Dawkins whacked ‘discuss’ on the end of the tweet in an effort to suggest it is not his opinion, but rather just a topic of debate, riled those who disagree:

Dawkins issued a follow up tweet, claiming that it was not his intent to “ally in any way with Republican bigots” in America:

It appears that these latest tweets were the straw that broke the camel’s back for the American Humanist Association, prompting it to sever all ties with Dawkins.

Remarkable really, given that Dawkins has sent out far more controversial tweets in the past, such as that time he suggested eugenics, the practice of selective breeding supported by the Nazis, would work perfectly well if applied to humans, because it works on animals.

Or the time that he tweeted about Winchester Cathedral’s bells being “nicer” than the “aggressive” Muslim call to prayer:

Some supported Dawkins’ cancellation, while others labelled it another successful attack on science by the woke mob:
