Facebook's Grip On Modern Culture

Facebook’s grip on modern culture has transformed into something much bigger than mere words on the personal pages of the world’s technologically savvy denizens.

The enormity of the Facebook experiment comes with it a responsibility to represent the entirety of its user base – a responsibility that Facebook has concisely shirked in favor of a severe liberal slant.  CEO Mark Zuckerberg has taken the false flag information attack aimed at “fake news” and co-opted the moniker to censor and stifle those with whom his personal politics disagree.
This would be nothing of note were Zuckerberg in charge of a small media outlet with a staff of content creators, working feverishly to spin the world news to fit into this view.  Instead, the Facebook CEO is at the helm of one of the world’s most diverse and complex populations and publishing outlets, and he is simply censoring those with whom he disagrees.

Now, given the rise of conservatism across the globe, Facebook is turning their fascist-tendencies up to eleven in an effort to maintain the liberal status quo.  In France, where an extremely important election is looming, Zuckerberg has just fired a salvo of shots aimed directly at right-wing candidate Marine Le Pen.
“Facebook says it has targeted 30,000 fake accounts linked to France ahead of the country’s presidential election, as part of a worldwide effort against misinformation.

“The company said Thursday it’s trying to ‘reduce the spread of material generated through inauthentic activity, including spam, misinformation, or other deceptive content that is often shared by creators of fake accounts.’
“It said its efforts ‘enabled us to take action’ against the French accounts and that it is removing sites with the highest traffic.”

We must remember that, although these statements from Facebook appear benign and benevolent on their face, the word “fake” is doublespeak for “conservative” in the Kingdom of Zuckerberg.  What is happening in France is simply a refusal by the world’s most prevalent publisher of opinion to allow any conservative viewpoints to be heard in hopes of dashing the French people’s hopes of electing the enigmatic Le Pen to office.

This is ironically a case of pure and simple fascism:  A term used ad nauseam by the mainstream media’s figureheads to attempt to vilify the right wing movement that is sweeping our globe.
