Facebook CENSORS Anti-Government Page On Behalf Of Government

Social media and mainstream media outlets are bowing down to those in government and taking on the role of censoring those who call out authoritarianism.  The message of ending humanity’s enslavement will now be much harder to get out thanks to companies like Facebook.

On February 18, Facebook blocked the page of an anti-government website in Singapore following a demand from authorities.  The social media giant then claimed to be on the side of free speech by slamming the “disproportionate” use of a controversial law against online misinformation. The widely criticized legislation gives ministers the powers to order Internet platforms and websites to put warnings next to posts they deem false, and also order pages be blocked in the tightly regulated city-state, according to the Star. 

In other words, the government has given itself the power to make commands to censor information and internet companies must comply. Shocking right? Those in power just gave themselves more power…

Thanks to these new laws, governments can now order others to censor information.  A dangerous precedent has been set, and all we can do now is hope people start to stand up to the powers that should not be. When will people and businesses stand up for humanity against those who have already enslaved the majority of the tax cattle?  Not likely any time soon.

Political website States Times Review (STR) – which regularly posts articles critical of the government – was repeatedly accused of circulating falsehoods but refused to comply with official demands to put up corrections. 

Authorities this week ordered Facebook to block the page for Singapore users. While they have ordered corrections be put up next to posts on several occasions, this was the first time they sought to have access to a page disabled.

Confirming it complied with the order, Facebook said it was “legally compelled” to restrict access to the page in Singapore.

But a spokesperson added: “We believe orders like this are disproportionate and contradict the government’s claim that (the law) would not be used as a censorship tool.

“We’ve repeatedly highlighted this law’s potential for overreach and we’re deeply concerned about the precedent this sets for the stifling of freedom of expression in Singapore.” –The Star

Censorship is always used to silence to dissent and to ensure those who have objections to their enslavement by government are not heard.  It’s a disturbing precedent set by Facebook to self-enforce instead of standing up to the authoritarians.

The updated paperback edition of HATE dispels misunderstandings plaguing our perennial debates about “hate speech vs. free speech,” showing that the First Amendment approach promotes free speech, equality, and societal harmony. As “hate speech” has no generally accepted definition, we hear many incorrect assumptions that it is either absolutely unprotected or absolutely protected from censorship. Rather, U.S. law allows the government to punish hateful or discriminatory speech in specific contexts when it directly causes imminent serious harm. Yet, government may not punish such speech solely because its message is disfavored, disturbing, or vaguely feared to possibly contribute to some future harm. “Hate speech” censorship proponents stress the potential harms such speech might further: discrimination, violence, and psychic injuries. However, there has been little analysis of whether censorship effectively counters the feared injuries. Citing evidence from many countries, this book shows that “hate speech” is at best ineffective and at worst counterproductive. Therefore, the best way to resist hate and promote equality is not censorship, but rather, vigorous “counterspeech” and activism.

Democracy has always been somewhat of a bad joke played on the masses.  While most people have been conditioned to think it’s fine, others want no part of any system that operates on the premise that their rights don’t exist if they are in the minority.  And that’s exactly what the scam of democracy has always been.

People don’t want to hear the truth; they never do. They wanna live in some kind of fantasy. –Paul Mooney

China Is CENSORING Coronavirus Critics In The United States

The Chinese government is all about censorship, and this time, they are being effective at silencing coronavirus critics in the United States.  As Chinese tech companies have gone global, so has China’s ability to censor information outside of the mainland.

China is well-known for Communism and the censorship of non-government approved ideas. When those who think they have power over the thoughts and ideas of others begin to silence, you know oppression is clearly a reality.

VICE News spoke to dozens of WeChat users in the U.S. and Canada, as well as some users in the U.K., France, Spain, Australia, Germany, and Malaysia, who reported identical problems with their accounts as they tried to share information with their family and friends in China.

The restrictions will prevent international users from sending any information to contacts in China.  In some cases, they have also had their accounts suspended or blocked completely and accused of “spreading malicious rumors.” In many cases, the censorship means their only communication link to people inside China has been cut off completely, according to a report by VICE News.

If someone attempts to get information that is not approved by the Chinese government to people living under the tyranny there, they will likely be silenced, if not punished.

WeChat is a unit of Tencent, one of China’s largest tech companies, which also happens to be listed on the New York Stock Exchange. Now users in the U.S. are calling for Congress to intervene to preserve their freedom of speech, however, free speech is all but dead in the U.S. too.  And the politicians claiming authority over the rest of us are unlikely to do much if anything about it.

“Tencent is the evil helper of a totalitarian government that suppresses freedom of speech and democracy,” one WeChat user who lives in Philadelphia and wanted to remain anonymous due to fears of retribution, told VICE News. They delete or block your posts if they think it promotes democracy and challenges the government. It violates my civil rights as a U.S. citizen. I came to the U.S. for freedom. I thought I escaped from the threat of the Communist Party. But I’m wrong, I still live in terror because Tencent is monitoring my WeChat and may report me to the Chinese authorities.”

Things aren’t much better in the U.S. where companies like Facebook, Google, and YouTube delete or censor information that isn’t government-approved. In fact, the World Health Organization and Google have been working together to censor coronavirus information.

Tencent did not respond to specific questions about its censorship of international users but sent an emailed statement saying it was “committed to providing a secure and open platform” for all its users.
