There is no doubt at all that Twitter and other social media platforms have been engaging in political discrimination as of late, but it appears that things behind the scenes are worse than anyone imagined.
Take Facebook, for example, who have recently been criticized from both sides of the aisle on account of their unwillingness to censor President Trump’s campaign ads, and for their constant suppression of conservative voices.
Now, the undercover investigators at Project Veritas have revealed something even more sinister about Mark Zuckerberg’s creation.
A top Facebook moderator boasted that she purposely targets and “deletes” Trump supporter profiles from the platform, accusing them of being terrorists, new undercover video shows.
The undercover video released by Project Veritas further confirms what conservatives have known for years: Facebook is deliberately targeting them, censoring them, or shadowbanning them simply for their political views, not because they violate some sort of policy.
“If someone is wearing a MAGA hat, I am going to delete them for terrorism and I’m just going to like go crazy,” says Facebook content moderator Lara Kontakos. “I think we are all doing that.”
The video has to be seen to be believed.
And this doesn’t appear to the the case of a rogue element within the moderation team, either.
Another content moderator echoed that sentiment.
“Yes! I don’t give no f*cks, I’ll delete it,” she said.
The same woman said she deliberately leaves up anti-Trump content even if it clearly violates Facebook’s terms of service.
“You gotta take it down but I leave it up,” she added. “If you see something that’s not supposed to be up, it’s probably me.”
So much for free speech, eh?
