There has been a concerted effort in America over the course of the last month to discriminate against those who identify as politically conservative.
The evidence is clear. Social media sites such as Facebook openly admit to censoring conservative news outlets in the “trending topics” section of the site, just because.
Trending: The Solar Observatory Mystery
“Facebook workers routinely suppressed news stories of interest to conservative readers from the social network’s influential ‘trending’ news section, according to a former journalist who worked on the project. This individual says that workers prevented stories about the right-wing CPAC gathering, Mitt Romney, Rand Paul, and other conservative topics from appearing in the highly-influential section, even though they were organically trending among the site’s users.
“Several former Facebook ‘news curators,’ as they were known internally, also told Gizmodo that they were instructed to artificially ‘inject’ selected stories into the trending news module, even if they weren’t popular enough to warrant inclusion—or in some cases weren’t trending at all. The former curators, all of whom worked as contractors, also said they were directed not to include news about Facebook itself in the trending module.”
Certainly, Facebook is a private company and they can do whatever they’d like, but to assume that what we’re seeing on the site is what it purports to be is an important part of what social media is supposed to be. We should be using Facebook and Twitter in a pure way, not curated by some false idol in a hoodie.
Now YouTube is jumping on the bandwagon of liberal discrimination against American traditionalists by taking an egregious step away from the Second Amendment.
“YouTube, a popular media site for firearms enthusiasts, this week quietly introduced tighter restrictions on videos involving weapons, becoming the latest battleground in the U.S. gun-control debate.“YouTube will ban videos that promote or link to websites selling firearms and accessories, including bump stocks, which allow a semi-automatic rifle to fire faster. Additionally, YouTube said it will prohibit videos with instructions on how to assemble firearms. The video site, owned by Alphabet Inc.’s Google, has faced intense criticism for hosting videos about guns, bombs and other deadly weapons.“For many gun-rights supporters, YouTube has been a haven. A current search on the site for ‘how to build a gun’ yields 25 million results, though that includes items such as toys. At least one producer of gun videos saw its page suspended on Tuesday. Another channel opted to move its videos to an adult-content site, saying that will offer more freedom than YouTube.”
