Establishment elites hate to be mocked and ridiculed.
Leftist political agitator Saul Alinksy outlined in Rules For Radicals that “ridicule is man’s most potent weapon.”
That’s why Facebook has a new eye-rolling censorship rule you probably can’t avoid breaking.
The elites are making it clear that if they get their way one day soon there will be repercussions for everyone who dares criticize the overlords and their tied-at-the-hip pals.
We’re talking real totalitarian stuff.
That day grew closer with Facebook’s new announcement that it will increase censorship on users who go after journalists in a blatant effort to combat humiliation of the elite class.
“Facebook Inc will now count activists and journalists as ‘involuntary’ public figures and so increase protections against harassment and bullying targeted at these groups, its global safety chief said in an interview this week. The social media company, which allows more critical commentary of public figures than of private individuals, is changing its approach on the harassment of journalists and ‘human rights defenders,’ who it says are in the public eye due to their work rather than their public personas.”
Journalists have somehow become a protected class even though many of them are agents of multinational globalist corporations.
“Facebook will no longer allow severe and unwanted sexualizing content, derogatory sexualized photoshopped images or drawings or direct negative attacks on a person’s appearance, for example, in comments on a public figure’s profile.”
The guidelines are intentionally broad, which could mean that meme makers could be censored on Facebook for mocking journalists.
Facebook’s move comes after CNN threatened to doxx a meme maker who created an animated gif of Donald Trump body slamming the CNN logo.
Another blue-collar worker was doxxed by The Daily Beast for posting a clip of Nancy Pelosi rambling incoherently; the justification for the doxxing was that the clip was “doctored” (it wasn’t), which was spreading misinformation about the House Speaker.
The most powerful and privileged in society are coming up with inane justifications as to why they should be exempted from criticism.
And that’s really bad for anyone who loves freedom.
