Posted By: Imright, 8/6/2020 5:37:29 AM

Facebook and Twitter censored a video clip of President Donald Trump’s recent interview on Fox News’ Fox & Friends over alleged coronavirus “misinformation. Facebook said it removed the video of the interview because President Trump claimed that children have heightened immunity to coronavirus. The Trump campaign stands by this claim, but Facebook disagrees, and used it as an excuse to prevent American citizens using the platform from hearing what their president has to say.This is despite repeated assurances from Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg that the platform will not censor politicians.In a speech at Georgetown University in October 2019,

Unbelievable. Social media censorship is out of control. Even Zuckie must be surprised that his little people took this action to scrub the interview from FB.

About 5 years late now in declaring social media Marxist Communist democrats, rino's, independents, liberals, monopolies against the best interest of a free American citizen. Violation of our constitutional and Bill of Rights that ban all efforts by tyrants of any persuasion from silencing our free speech rights.

These companies are playing with fire...and it's about time that they get burned. They may think they have the upper hand, if not a de facto monopoly (thus their arrogance and brazenly unfair actions), but NOBODY is bigger than the US federal government, and they can crush anybody. Even Facebook, Twitter, Google, or any other tech giant. They're pygmies compared to the US government. There are several ways this can be done. First, the government can declare them to be "publishers" instead of "platforms." This is a critical legal and ultimately a financial distinction. By making censoring decisions, they could be reclassified as publishers and thus become subjected to potential legal action by those being censored and lose certain protections of platforms. But even without that, the real hammer would be if the President, both personally and by executive order drove federal traffic away from any site/platform that used unfair and biased, if not illegal, censorship. The entire business model of these sites/platfporms is "traffic" (i.e., the number of persons/clicks that use them). So if tens of millions of users and hundreds of millions, or more, clicks disappeared overnight, these platforms would be crushed financially. Somebody needs to rein in these platforms. President Trump can do it if the Congress (whose weasels are on the take from all of these platforms) won't. Do it. "No justice, no clicks!"

What they need to start doing is standing up for free speech in this country, something we used to take for granted. Every time Facebook, twitter, YouTube etc. censors free speech fine them 1,000,000,000.00 dollars. That will get their attention real quick. Its also time to break up these huge monopolies. Also force broadcasters to stand on their own by divesting them from the likes of AT&T, Disney, Jeff Bezos etc.

Zuckerberg said he won't censor politicians. But Trump and his followers have always said he isn't a politician. Ergo - - Trump can be censored. See the logic here?

I didn't know that Facebook and Twitter employed a panel of doctors and medical researchers! How do they compare to the ones available to President Trump? Are snowflake geeks playing doctor at Facebook and Twitter? What are their medical credentials? Who are they receiving medical advice from? Probably Pelosi, Nadler, and Schumer...

The WHO is a political entity. They are not the only "medical organization" with skilled doctors. Why are they the only "experts" that can have an opinion on this virus? What makes them the only acceptable arbiter on anything regarding COVID-19. They already lied about it not being transmitted between humans when this whole thing started. If anything, FB, YT, and Twitter are spreading disinformation by not allowing other medical opinions.

When President Trump and Joe Biden on Thursday dueled over the sincerity of the former vice president’s faith, they implicitly acknowledged the outsize role religion is playing in the 2020 election.Trump started the feud, remarking at an Ohio event that Biden is “against God” and would “hurt God” if elected president. Trump’s words were a crude distillation of weeks of messaging from his campaign — that Biden’s stances on abortion and religious freedom make him a bad fit for religious voters — and they provoked a strongly worded response from Biden.“We’re in the battle for the soul of our nation,

Hundreds of President Trump supporters descended onto the streets of Beverly Hills to protest property destruction and the 'villainization' of police while two similar demonstrations were held in Texas.These counter-demonstrations are in response to a series of anti-racism and Black Lives Matter protests that have gripped the country since George Floyd's death on Memorial Day. At the heart of such protests are a staunch distaste for law enforcement, which has been increasingly scrutinized for using excessive force, racial profiling and brutality.President Trump has on several occasions labeled Black Lives Matter protesters as liberal 'anarchists,' but he was dubbed hypocritical in light of conservative citizens brandishing firearms during anti-lockdown demonstrations.

The Seattle City Council voted unanimously on Wednesday in support of police budget proposals that would lay off 100 police officers, despite objections from the city's mayor and police chief. The city council began to reexamine the police department's budget earlier this summer in response to anti-police protests. Mayor Jenny Durkan (D.) and police chief Carmen Best criticized the most recent set of proposals, which would also end the removal of homeless people from the city's streets and cut salaries for police leadership. Durkan said the cuts would hit the "most diverse class" of officers the city has ever had, as police union rules mandate that layoffs are determined by seniority.
