Independence Day weekend 2021 was filled with leftists spewing anti-American propaganda all over social media.
Most Americans were celebrating living in a nation that actually affords its citizens the freedom to bash it, but the Left would rather you believe everyone was discussing how racist the country is.
And in the midst of the America bashing rhetoric, Facebook users noticed a particular hashtag was being suppressed over Independence Day weekend.
According to The Washington Times, Facebook blocked people from viewing the hashtag “revolution” during the 4th of July weekend.
Critics were confused why Facebook allowed people to include #revolution in their posts but then blocked users from searching for content with the hashtag.
They reported that the issue came to a head Sunday, July 4, when a number of social media users tweeted that Facebook blocked #revolution from being viewed.
If you searched for the hashtag, you were met with a message that read, “Keeping Our Community Safe,” which acknowledged that “posts with revolution are temporarily hidden here.”
The message went to tell the user searching for the revolution hashtag that “some content in those posts goes against our Community Standards.”
Facebook still has not explained why the hashtag revolution was blocked.
The social media giant bans content that violates policies against “violence and incitement and false news.”
Is the word “revolution” inherently violent?
According to Mark Zuckerberg’s social media censors, it is.
Users stated that despite the uproar, the hashtag continued to be blocked.
It does appear that as of Tuesday morning, users were once again allowed to post #revolution.
The blatant act of censorship by Facebook was universally panned.
Representative Thomas Massie of Kentucky tweeted, “Welcome to the re-education of America on Independence Day weekend.”
Fierce defender America, Representative Madison Cawthorn from North Carolina added, “#BigTech at it again, prohibiting Americans from commemorating our independence from a tyrannical government. They don’t want to teach history because it is repeating itself. Wake up, America.”
Along with censoring hashtags, Facebook now alerts users to supposed “extremist content.”
Many right-wing Facebook users have received messages from Facebook stating that they or someone they know might have been “exposed to harmful extremist content.”
Given that Big Tech is in the pocket of the Democrat Party, there is no doubt this is a very real case of collusion between the two.
The Biden administration wants people censored so they can take down anyone who goes against their agenda, and Mark Zuckerberg is happy to assist.
