Facebook Bias Against Conservatives Strikes Again

 “But I got landed with a 24-hour ban, all the same – together with a threat that if I carried on doing whatever I hadn’t done wrong then next time the ban might be permanent.”

Combat Shooter's HandbookAnd I got the same ban and the same threat for referring to Scott Pelly (the CBS Evening News Anchor) as a “little fag.”

So somebody please help me out here–keep me out of trouble. What are these sick people calling themselves nowadays? — jtl, 419

Reconnaissance Marine MCI 03.32f: Marine Corps Institute The war on American conservatism has taken enormous leaps forward in the past year, with social media playing a massive new role.

The Betrayed: On Warriors, Cowboys and Other MisfitsFacebook, Twitter, and Google, the holy trinity of the way Americans communicate on the internet, have all been forced in recent months to confront the liberal media’s favorite new term du jour:  Fake news.

Were these companies truly unbiased or sensitive to the concept of free speech, their stance on “fake news” would be to sit back and allow Americans to learn for themselves what the truth is.  This was the accepted strategy for “fake news” for the past two centuries and beyond in this nation, and it made our people weary but strong.  Unfortunately, these megaliths of the world wide web are all owned, founded, backed, or funded by the ultraliberal globalist left wing of world politics.

A Handbook for Ranch Managers  Planned Grazing: A Study Guide and Reference Manual Environmental & Natural Resource Economics: The Austrian ViewThat mean, when confronted with the liberal media’s crusade against “fake news”, the trifecta of internet connectivity all lean squarely to the left, leading many to believe that they are unfairly targeting conservative viewpoints for censorship.  And on the internet, that censorship can mean financial failure, extinction, and then a liberal-led fascist state-run media.

Take the example of James Delingpole.

“Facebook just put me on the naughty step for a piece I wrote defending the future Rector of Glasgow University. (aka Milo).

“I’d love to repost it here so that you can see how harmless it was, how totally not in breach of a single one of Facebook’s ‘Community Standards’. But because Facebook deleted it before I could save it you’re just going to have to take my word that it did not contain ‘direct threats’, encourage ‘self-injury’, promote ‘dangerous organizations’, enable ‘bullying and harassment’ or involve any ‘attacks on public figures’. Nor did it engage in ‘criminal activity’, ‘sexual violence and exploitation’ or have anything to do with ‘regulated goods’.

“But I got landed with a 24-hour ban, all the same – together with a threat that if I carried on doing whatever I hadn’t done wrong then next time the ban might be permanent.

“For some of you this won’t matter because Facebook. You think Mark Zuckerberg is a weird sociopath, that it’s a cesspit of festering left-liberalism, that social media is a waste of time. Yes I get that – but you don’t work in the media, whereas I do and for all of us in the communications industry whether we’re writers, entertainers, journalists, bloggers, vloggers or podcasters Facebook is a big deal because so much of our audience is on it. And it’s as important to those of us on the right as it is on the left. Breitbart, for example, gets a lot of its traffic via Facebook. Milo – never knowingly left-wing has a huge Facebook presence. The idea that we on the conservative side of the argument can afford to ignore a market of one billion potential readers  because Facebook is run by liberals is just dumb.”

The Essence of Liberty: Volume I: Liberty and History: The Rise and Fall of the Noble Experiment with Constitutionally Limited Government (Liberty and ... Limited Government) (Volume 1) The Essence of Liberty: Volume II: The Economics of Liberty (Volume 2) The Essence of Liberty: Volume III: A Universal Philosophy of Political Economy (Liberty: A Universal Political Ethic) (Volume 3)  And this begs an enormous question for the First Amendment:  At what point does Facebook stop being a private company and begin being a broadcasting service that is bound to allowing every viewpoint the same stage?

The Essence of Liberty: Volume II (The Economics of Liberty)The Essence of Liberty Volume II: The Economics of Liberty Volume II will introduce the reader to the fundamental principles of the Austrian School of Economics. The Austrian School traces its origins back to the Scholastics of Medieval Spain. But its lineage actually began with Carl Menger and continued on through Adam Smith, Ludwig von Mises, Murray Rothbard and many others. It is the one and only true private property based, free market line of economic thought. Available in both paperback and Kindle versions.

About Land & Livestock Interntional, Inc.

Land and Livestock International, Inc. is a leading agribusiness management firm providing a complete line of services to the range livestock industry. We believe that private property is the foundation of America. Private property and free markets go hand in hand—without property there is no freedom. We also believe that free markets, not government intervention, hold the key to natural resource conservation and environmental preservation. No government bureaucrat can (or will) understand and treat the land with as much respect as its owner. The bureaucrat simply does not have the same motives as does the owner of a capital interest in the property. Our specialty is the working livestock ranch simply because there are so many very good reasons for owning such a property. We provide educational, management and consulting services with a focus on ecologically and financially sustainable land management that will enhance natural processes (water and mineral cycles, energy flow and community dynamics) while enhancing profits and steadily building wealth.
