By now, most of my readers will probably have heard about the rank censorship by tech platforms Facebook, Twitter, and Google, of the story in the New York Post about the machinations of Hunter Biden, the son of Democrat candidate for president, “Sleepy” Joe Biden. It is well-known that Hunter Biden was given a place on the board of Ukrainian gas company, Burisma, at a ridiculous salary of $50,000 per month. Hunter knows little about the gas industry, and less about Ukraine, so it has been widely believed that the sole reason for his placement on the board of a foreign gas company was so they could curry favor with Hunter’s dad, Vice President, Joe Biden in the Obama Administration.
In violation of its own standards against so-called “hate groups”, Facebook allows Rose City (Portland, OR) Antifa to recruit online, on its platform. You have, no doubt, seen all the news stories of the violent riots in Portland for the past 100+ days. Please read the linked article above, and then sever all ties you have with Facebook.
We already know that Facebook supports and listens to the sleazy Southern Poverty Law Center when it deems groups such as the totally non-violent Tea Party and educational site Prager U “hate groups”, because they happen to strenuously disagree with the current Social Justice Warrior philosophy. It is time to give up Facebook. Forever. Your family can find you on your WordPress Blog, can’t they?
Many people out there think that the ongoing story about the big tech/social media platforms (Facebook, Twitter, Google-owned YouTube) and others (Vimeo) censoring information they deem “Not True” is basically a conspiracy theory promulgated by conservatives who feel left out by the “in crowd”. Videos below are removed by platforms almost as soon as they are posted, by the Almighty Arbiters of Truth on the Internet. Do you want Facebook and Twitter and Google determining what of your posts are true?
Well, just this week, a group of Doctors, going by “Frontline Doctors”, put out a video press conference, where they describe their findings on the efficacy of Hydroxychloroquine in treating cases of Covid-19, the disease caused by the Wuhan Coronavirus (which WAS spread around the world from Communist China).
Let’s make this Video go Viral Today!
Oh, and by the way, this doctors’ group’s own website was taken down! No Freedom of Speech in today’s United States.
New video posted today:
Followers, get out there and link to both these videos. Defy Social Media Tyranny!
Here’s a link to a post by a friend of mine, over at Ratburger.org. I was impressed enough by his post that I have added a link to LifeSiteNews on my sidebar, so Pro-Life RushBabe49 followers can go directly there.
I am appalled by the actions of the Culture of Death (abortion supporters) who seem to run the big tech sites (Facebook, Google, Twitter), and systematically deny pro-lifers and conservatives a voice. My followers will know that I do not maintain a presence on Facebook or Twitter, and I am being reminded of why that has been a good decision daily.
Please give LifeSiteNews your attention, and send your friends there. Choose Life, not Death.
Just lately, there have been a number of stories in various media of huge tech companies having their discriminatory policies toward users with conservative viewpoints exposed to public view.
Just lately, the big story has been that Twitter staff have, behind the scenes, “shadow-banned” conservatives by making their tweets essentially invisible to their followers. Current and former Twitter employees were caught on tape bragging about having made tweets by conservatives not available to their followers.
Earlier, a big story was how YouTube, owned by Google, banned PragerU from its service, comparing it to “white supremacists”. Google is the Big Kahuna of the Internet, and its algorithm changes can prompt uproars from various “harmed” groups. And then, there’s the recent case of Google engineer James Damore, who was fired for posting an internal essay regarding the internal culture of the company, which would put conservative employees “on trial” and shun them; many stories of disturbing content on internal Google message boards have come out recently.
Facebook, that other Big Kahuna, has also been accused by multiple parties of censoring its “news feed” to eliminate stories by and about conservatives. It has also been called out for censoring user posts that show conservative views.
Gee, this seems to make me sound prescient for simply staying off Facebook and Twitter. So far, nobody has tried to censor RushBabe49’s conservative posts and viewpoint. And I thank all my loyal followers for their support, even though it’s mostly silent.
People are probably quite familiar now with the big story of how a Google software engineer was summarily fired for circulating a memo around his company, positing the viewpoint (taking into account verifiable scientific studies that confirm this) that a reason why more women don’t work as software engineers could be that most women don’t want to be software engineers; not that the evil male empire is preventing them from becoming software engineers. Google circulated memos in opposition, and their reason for dismissing their engineer was that his memo “violated company policies”. Here is a link to a post on the Ricochet Main Feed. Maybe you’ll want to join.
Just recently, the Daily Caller newsletter published an article discussing the participation of Google and Facebook in a gathering called “Netroots Nation”, a meeting of a variety of far-left techies. It seems that this “net roots” group will be ganging up on a pro-life organization. A Ricochet member did this, which is absolutely perfect:
[Editorial Comment. If your organization protests a group that is “pro-life”, what does that make you? Why, it makes you and your organizations and your sponsors “anti-life”, or “pro-death” (here’s looking at you, Planned Parenthood)]
The Daily Caller story also referenced a video, with the Google name changed to Gulag. You may never think of Google in quite the same way again. I have stopped using Google for my internet search. I use DuckDuckGo instead, and it works just fine. You already know that I do not use Facebook. Here’s just one more reason why.
Here’s an idea. How about if ALL the world’s largest media entities simply stopped publishing any pictures or video of terrorists. No YouTube, no Facebook, no Twitter, NO PICTURES OF ANY KIND. They would still publish stories, but no pictures would show Islamic Butchers beheading journalists, blowing up mosques, or shooting their machine guns from the backs of jeeps. Google, Twitter, Facebook, and every other social network would agree to immediately take down ANY terrorist videos, pictures, or blog posts. What would happen if every terrorist group simply lost their world stage? Their activities would be reported on only in plain-vanilla words. They might have a harder time recruiting, if no one could access the bomb-building instructions online. I have always wondered why it’s so easy to get pictures of terrorists doing their evil work-if we can take the pictures, why can’t we simply blow them up?
BBC, NY Times, Bloomberg, Sky News, Wall Street Journal, CBC, Associated Press, Washington Post, Times of London, Reuters, YouTube/Google, Facebook, Twitter-DO YOUR PART TO STOP TERRORISM. And no BS about “freedom of the press”. Press freedom also includes freedom NOT to publish.
I often have friends ask me why I am not on Facebook, since they all are. They are constantly updating their profiles, and commenting on their news feeds. They also complain a lot about other users violently disagreeing with them on Facebook, and doing so using nasty language.
Well, I am a 67-year-old woman, and pretty conservative in my outlook and opinions. I don’t take kindly to being figuratively spat on or ripped to shreds. I subscribe to the internet newsletters of Kim Komando (yep, that’s her real name!), and she often has articles about the goings-on at Facebook.
Like THIS, very recently. Or THIS from a couple of months ago. If you go to your favorite search engine and enter the words Facebook and Danger, you get millions of hits. I acknowledge that most of the dangers of Facebook are to young people, but I’m really not anxious to have my identity stolen, or every internet move tracked by a social network. Experts have listed in profusion the many ways that you can be harmed by Facebook.
Update on May 11, 2016. As told by some former Facebook employees, the social media site deliberately suppresses conservative news. We have suspected this for a while, and many of my Ricochet friends have anecdotal evidence of this. Now, everyone is aware that the techies in Silicon Valley are heavily liberal and intolerant. This is just more evidence for this. One more confirmation that I am doing the right thing in avoiding Facebook.
And, aside from all those dangers, I simply am not interested in sharing every little thing about my self and my life. I don’t think that all of my friends (real friends, not Facebook “friends”) are interested in knowing what I had for breakfast yesterday, or where I am at this exact moment (which is why I’m not on Twitter either). There are still parts of my self that are mine alone, and not public knowledge. In my world, there is still something known as privacy. There is still something known as shame. Many young people seem to have lost all sense of shame (which is why you see people voluntarily posting naked pictures of themselves online), and when they are “exposed”, they simply shrug it off. Not me, not now, not ever.
Dear Mr. Zuckerberg,
I commend you for your success in helping start Facebook, and making it the 600-pound gorilla of social media, used by millions of people all over the world. This has made you a multi-millionaire (billionaire?), who can afford just about anything you want.
Last week, I was reading the Wall Street Journal about your upcoming sale of millions of shares of Facebook stock, expected to generate a taxable gain for you of approximately $2.3 Billion! In the next sentence, however, the Journal pointed out that, between Federal and State taxes, Government will confiscate 53.8% of that gain!
Mr. Zuckerberg, doesn’t it bother you at all that Government takes over HALF of your earnings from the business you started and helped nurture to its behemoth status? Do you even know about this? Do you think that it’s a good thing for you to have to sacrifice that much money that you acquired honestly? Now, I know that what you have left is more money than most US citizens can even imagine having, but it might be worth your while to object to that much evaporating before you even see it.
It makes me very angry that our government thinks that IT can claim that much of anyone’s earnings. But I guess that you Liberals just love big government, and have no problem with them confiscating your money. Maybe you think that the money the government takes from you is used to improve the lot of people less fortunate than you are. Let me disabuse you of that notion. Most of YOUR money goes into the pockets of government bureaucrats, who administer various programs that suck up your earnings, while having little practical effect on society except to do things like dictate what kind of light bulbs you are allowed to buy.
Happy New Year, Mark.
I guess I’m too old-fashioned, but I just don’t use Facebook. So I’m notifying you all about the Facebook page for all us RushBabes. When Rush got the suggestion, he immediately started it, and I hear that there are now thousands of members. Let me know what it’s like, since I won’t be able to see it for myself.
