Please remember this.
Next week we will be hearing from the usual cadre of BIG Business and BIG Government people about how “fair” and “unbiased” these MEGA social media firms are.
They will wax on about how this is all “algorithms” and ignore that humans “bake-in” these biases into their algorithms and proverbially laugh about it behind the scenes even in leaked emails.
And how even when the algorithms are not “kook” enough, they will have people overseeing things to make sure leftist ideology is implemented anyway.
And attempt to fool and manipulate you and others into believing that groups like the SPLC are really unbiased anti-hate overseers . . . .
. . . and not leftist political huge business and huge GOVERNMENT pushing tax-free idealogue organizations.
And when that does not work they will arrogantly attempt to intimidate you because they may know more about computer programming than you (ignoring the fact that some computer programmers will give you the same warnings of overt liberalism evangelization).
Or when “community standards” are SELECTIVELY IMPLEMENTED, they will try to fool you into thinking that this was all “fair”. You tell them it is not fair. They insist it WAS fair.
Then when Facebook or whomever admits that the “ban” or “suspension” was inappropriate, the leftist apologists THEN change their tune and attempt to say how benevolent these nanny businesses are.
Or how being sooo large, this was an innocent honest mistake (when just two days earlier these same people talking about these same events were telling you it was NO MISTAKE and that this or that conservative BAN was FAIR and all a matter of . . . (You know what I am going to say) . . . “Community standards”.
“Community standards” which are always left poorly defined enough, that “community standards” can mean whatever Facebook, etc. SAYS it means.
Or that this is PRIVATE BUSINESS so we HAVE TO let them carry on as they want. (But KEEP giving them your TAXPAYER dollars for free in the form of subsidies, etc.)
Private business so we MUST let them have their way. Which is false. (Apartment owners are “private business”. They can get into trouble if they refuse to rent to a homosexual “couple”.)
And they will condescendingly talk down to you. Even about things you know you are much more knowledgable about (but you are not going to say that on a public forum where you are attempting to preserve at least SOME of your privacy).
Or they will try running down your source while IGNORING the information from that source.
And when all that fails, they will start in with name-calling (i.e. your complaint about Facebook is a “conspiracy”).
But never offer an apology when two days later Facebook in affect admits they were wrong but blames it on mere “error” instead of their bias.
Remember how calling for the death of these Covington kids, bloody violent images, overt bullying of children, etc. are all now ACCEPTABLE. But Alex Jones is the REAL problem.
Just remember all this the next time the leftists are attempting to fool you about how “fair” these monstrously over-sized companies are.
Please remember this.
