In a separate House Committee hearing in Washington, lawbreakers questioned Facebook honcho Mark Zuckerberg. The Congressman with the squeaky teenage boy-sounding voice, Jim Jordan, brought up many examples of Fakebook and Twitter censoring conservatives, libertarians, vaccine skeptics and hydroxychloroquine-advocating doctors, and examples of Big Tech “de-platforming” social media users.
Besides their regular censoring and banning and shadow-banning, the Big Tech companies are censoring by way of “de-platforming” and getting financial institutions, payment services, credit card companies, etc. to cancel users’ accounts, depriving them of the monetary benefits of their social media platforms.
The Big Tech “social justice” warriors are getting serious in their promoting wacko myths and superstitions, anti-diversity of thought and their intolerance of alternative viewpoints that do not repeat the Establishment’s official narrative or do not follow Big Tech’s allegiance to Big Pharma’s poison profits.
But who exactly are these people who are making the decisions on censoring or not censoring others, and deciding what information is legitimate and what isn’t?
Mainly, they are millennials, brainwashed by 12 to 16 years of government school indoctrination and college “social justice” crusades, of wacky loony-tunes propaganda and gibberish that means nothing in the real world.
As I wrote here and as described in this Federalist article, the workers at Google, for example, blacklist and shun other employees who have expressed any views (or any slight indications of such views, like “microaggressions”) which go against their brainwashed “social justice” orthodoxy mantras and slogans. They give “peer bonuses” to those other workers who enforce the rigid, intolerant conformity.
If you remember, former Google employee James Damore, who claimed that Google discriminates against white males and conservatives, had tried to sue Google for his firing. According to the lawsuit, Damore described Google as having “internal mailing lists catering to employees with alternative lifestyles, including furries, polygamy, transgenderism, and plurality, for the purpose of discussing sexual topics. The only lifestyle that seems to not be openly discussed on Google’s internal forums is traditional heterosexual monogamy…”
And, get this: “For instance, an employee who sexually identifies as ‘a yellow-scaled wingless dragonkin’ and ‘an expansive ornate building’ presented a talk entitled ‘Living as a Plural Being’ at an internal company event.”
As I wrote in my other post on that, “Loony-tunes much?”
The Damore-Google lawsuit also mentions Google’s internal memo with directions on “How to (Properly) Punch a Nazi,” in which it describes how to properly punch a Nazi, though it isn’t clear whether they give directions on how to determine whether someone actually is a Nazi. Some of the young, brainwashed snowflake nutjobs think it’s fine to just point someone out, such as at a demonstration or counter-demonstration, call him a “Nazi” and then attack him. The government-schooled ignoramuses do not understand due process and presumption of innocence, sadly.
And also according to the Federalist article, Google employees who do not conform to the brainwashed “social justice” orthodoxy have a “psychotic break from reality.” (I think it’s the other way around, ya think?)
And at Facebook, according to CNBC, employees there had complained about a “cult-like” atmosphere within the Facebook culture. It supposedly is a culture of enforced feigned love for the Facebook leadership while at the same time employees are discouraged from expressing any dissenting thoughts from the leadership’s top-down edicts. it seemed to be all about obeying the commands from the top and shut up.
So we have the irrational kookiness with these “social justice”-obsessed Big Tech companies and their authoritarian, intolerant nature of how things are run in these places. And these are the ones who will determine what is “truth” or what are “facts” to be allowed and what is “fake news” or “harmful” and should be censored, removed or de-platformed. Is there a way to boycott and “de-platform” Google, Fakebook, Twitter and the rest of those schnooks?
