Chances are, folks; you won’t see this article. The reason is that Facebook won’t want you to.
The internet, and the wild connectivity of the world at large, has made for some fairly interesting revelations and revolutions in the way we operate as a species. Certainly, there is the advent of online banking and digital money, as well as our newfound ability to communicate an idea or an opinion instantly with the rest of the world. This is truly a revolution for the people of earth, who can now expose corruption, filth, and hatred with relative ease.
Of course, the hate-mongering, filthy, and corrupt among us are none too pleased with the situation, and are looking to take action.
Facebook, for example, has now been caught censoring any ill-appearing news about themselves from their platform.
Facebook has blocked users from posting articles from the Guardian the AP about the social media platform’s latest user data breach, marking them as “spam.” The company later reversed decision, which it called an “error.”
The link blocking was first noticed by Shaun Hair, executive editor of the Western Journal, who posted a video of his attempt to post an article from the Guardian about Facebook’s latest data breach to his Facebook page. In the video, Hair pastes a link to the video and receives an error telling him that the link is spam and cannot be posted.

Predictably, the left has allowed for Facebook to rewrite the First Amendment under the auspices of their status as a “private company” that can do whatever they want.
To that I reply: Where was this attitude back when the radical left was attacking a religious baker for refusing service to a couple of potential cake customers?
