Facebook Censorship Expanding: Post This!

December 28, 2012

When does social networking become social engineering?
As a rule, I stay off Facebook. I have a Dojo Rat account just to hold the space, but I simply can’t stand using it. When I first set it up I didn’t even advertise that Dojo Rat had an account, people simply found it. Suddenly I had all these new “friends” that were posting about morning coffee or their cat throwing up. WTF?
So there it sits, another unused techno-leash. Now what really makes me mad is this story- reposted with permission and attribution to “Washington’s Blog”:


“Political Witch Hunt by Popular Social Media Sites
We’ve previously documented that the largest social media websites censor government criticism.

For example, Facebook pays low-wage foreign workers to delete certain content based upon a censorship list. For instance, Facebook deletes accounts created by any Palestinian resistance groups.

Today, Facebook deactivated the Facebook accounts of some of the leading American political critics.

For example, former diplomat and U.C. Berkeley Professor Emeritus Peter Dale Scott told us that his Facebook account was suddenly deactivated today without any justification.

So did Richard Gage, founder of Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth.

And Michael Rivero, owner of the popular website What Really Happened.

Infowars – one of the world’s most popular alternative media sites – confirms that accounts for the following political commentators have been shut down:

■Kurt Nimmo, writer for Infowars.com and formerly Counterpunch
■Aaron Dykes of Infowars
■Jason from Infowars
■Infowar Artist
Indeed, Facebook told an Infowars reporter last year not to post anything political:

Be careful making about making political statements on facebook … facebook is about building relationships not a platform for your political viewpoint. Don’t antagonize your base. Be careful and congnizat (sic) of what you are preaching.

And Infowars also confirms that the Facebook account for Natural News – one of the most popular alternative health sites – has been shut down.

Reports are that the Facebook accounts of a number of other political critics were suspended or deactivated today as well, including:

■Amber Lyon, 3-time Emmy Award winning CNN reporter
■Robert M. Bowman, former director of the “Star Wars” defense program under President Ronald Reagan
■William Rodriguez, 9/11 hero
■Anthony J. Hilder, popular radio host
■William Lewis
■Weare Change, popular citizen journalism group
■Wacboston
■Michael Murphy
■Mike Skuthan
■Packy Savvenas
■Sean Wright and Katherine Albrect
We will update this post as we receive additional information.”

  • Did Jack Scott “Radicalize” The NBA’s Bill Walton?
    Did Jack Scott Radicalize NBA Star Bill Walton? Sadly, we have to note that Bill Walton (and Jack Scott) are no longer living. Walton was a hero for many where I grew up in Portland, Oregon. He was the star of an NBA championship, which I pretty much didn’t care about. Later, Walton was doing […]
  • Review: Gold Warriors – America’s Secret Recovery Of Yamashita’s Gold
    This book, “Gold Warriors”, by Sterling and Peggy Seagrave is really, really good. It can be expensive because it is out of print, but I bought it long ago and it has been waiting in my “to read” pile. Affordable copies can still be found, I ordered one for a friend and apparently it is […]

  • Review: “Mind Games – The Assassination Of John Lennon”
    “Mind Games” is a great “Who-Done-it”. Of course, I am old enough to have remembered the December 1980 killing of Lennon – as well as that of JFK, King, And RFK. In fact, there are multiple similarities between the assassination of Robert Kennedy and that of John Lennon. Author David Whelan has deeply studied the […]
