Hear Ye! Hear Ye! Finally, here is an excellent reason to give up your social media addiction and start functioning like a real human being once again. And at the same time, you will also be shoving a stiff one up this totalitarian state’s ass. Ain’t it great?!

Yes, ladies and gentlemen, here is your chance to not only protect yourself and friends from Big Brother’s probing eyes and ears, but to save your thumbs and learn how to, once again, carry on an actual conversation with another human being, and without having to resort to all those asinine, annoying and mindless abbreviations:

Facebook Plans To Bury Alternative News

By Kurt Nimmo

Facebook has decided to make it easier for Snopes, Factcheck.org, ABC News, the Associated Press, and PolitiFact to flag “fake news.”

What this means is alternative news stories the establishment decides are fake will be pushed down in the Facebook newsfeed.

“Facebook is giving fact-checking organizations a kind of power they’ve never had before: the power to publicly brand other websites’ stories as ‘disputed’ and push them down in Facebook users’ newsfeeds,” reports Vox.

PolitiFact has been accused of bias and serious errors in judgment by critics on the right and left.

The Knight Foundation, one of PolitiFact’s largest donors, gave $200,000 to the Clinton Foundation. Knight also funds the Poynter Institute for Media Studies, a journalism school owned by The Tampa Bay Times newspaper.

It was also reported the International Fact-Checking Network financed by George Soros will be involved with the Facebook effort. It is hosted by the Poynter Institute and also funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Google, and the National Endowment for Democracy. NED’s founder said the organization does what the CIA did in the old days, namely take down disfavored governments and produce propaganda.

Poynter also gets money from the Omidyar Network run by the billionaire eBay founder Pierre Omidyar.

The Omidyar Network has teamed up with Soros’ Open Society on projects and given grants to third parties using the Soros-funded Tides Foundation. Tides underwrites numerous progressive causes.

Facebook will soon begin relegating alternative news stories to the bottom of the newsfeed where they are less likely to be viewed on the recommendations of these biased and establishment-linked organizations.

This will be a significant development for many alternative media websites. For instance, my website receives a large share of referred traffic from Facebook. If Facebook users do not see my stories in their newsfeed, a lot less traffic will be driven to my website and this is exactly what Soros and the establishment want.

Big Brother also rules Europe:

Precedent Set — Germany To Fine Facebook $500K For Every “Fake News” Post They Don’t Delete

Germany — Germany now says if Facebook refuses to deal with “fake news” in a timely manner, it will fine the social media platform €500,000 (around $525,000) for each false or hate speech item it fails to remove within 24 hours.

Thomas Oppermann, chairman of Germany’s Social Democratic Party, suggests a strict law with concurrent stiff penalty might be the best method of combating the plethora of “fake news” now apparently flooding the interwebs.

“Facebook did not avail itself of the opportunity to regulate the issue of complaint management itself,” Oppermann told Der Spiegel in an interview Friday. “Now market dominating platforms like Facebook will be legally required to build a legal protection office in Germany that is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.”

According to Deutsche Welle, this would allow putative ‘victims’ of fake news or hate speech to contact Facebook and request action be taken…

  1. But we live in democracies!

    It’s all about freedom of speech!

    It’s all about sorting falsehood from truth by exposing all pretensions to the slings and arrows of adversity, to the tumult of !

    It’s about objectivity and neutrality in relating events and exposing malfeasance in a non-partisan manner!

    It’s “them” hating “us” for our “freedoms!”

    It’s “them” hacking into our un-hackable Diebold voting machines, well, un-hackable by all of the democracy loving Americans who might conceivably actually possess the wherewithal to hack into them, but who wouldn’t dare but for the sake of ensuring the true democratic will of the people, yes, but therefore hackable by everybody else, even by someone in a hut in Siberia, or in all those other places backwardly intent upon snuffing out our sacred plutocratic rights, the enduring legacy of our founding fathers, God bless their slave owning, Indian killing, but all so humanitarian souls! If anybody could spin a story and change the narrative, take our words from us and give them a meaning we never intended, it was surely them, these silver tongued masters of obfuscation.

    Down with ‘fake news!’ Oh, indeed! Down with the truth itself if we must!

    So what else is new?

    Anyway, as you more or less expressed it, Dave: “Just. Fuck. Face Book. In the face!”

    If nobody shows up, who da fuck are they gonna censor?

    There are other ways of communicating, and if they don’t yet exist, they will be invented.

    The swines and their lickspittles don’t have a monopoly on creativity and never will.

    Let them censor to their heart’s content. We shall see what will happen.

    When reality finally begins to outstrip their lies, as it already does, when people won’t have a choice but through their suffering to come to a recognition of their oppression and their oppressor, no amount of censorship will suffice to hold back the tide of anger that even now has begun to rise.

    The more they will push, the more push back they will incite.

    People are waking up.

    Otherwise, why the measures?

    Already, I think, it is too late for them.

  2. I agree, Norm! Methinks they doth protest too much!

    One thing that is for certain, there are too many of us for a so-called “final solution” (another elite bald-faced lie), and they don’t have enough prisons and FEMA camps to keep us all at bay. So my guess is, they might just be shitting their panties at the moment. And thus this ridiculous routine. Who knows?
