In video exposed by Project Veritas, Facebook executives revealed their extreme far-left bias, admit election meddling and their support for Joe Biden’s Presidency. During the nearly hour-long “Q&A session” Zuckerberg and his Executive team gave their justifications of Facebook’s censorship of President Trump and Pro-Trump groups on on the platform and forwarded the false-narrative that Trump incited violence on January 6th.
“Over the last several years we have we’ve allowed the President to use our platform consistent with our own rules and at times we’ve removed content or labeled posts when they violated our policies and we did this all because we believe that the public should have access to the broadest possible amount of political speech and even when it’s even when it’s controversial.
But the current context the world now is fundamentally different involving the President trying to use our platform and others to incite a violent insurrection against a democratically elected government.”

Censoring President Trump Was Just the Start, They Admit to Manipulating Conservatives Everywhere
Facebook already banned “all mentions of ‘stop the steal’ ahead of the inauguration” according to Engadget.
“We are now removing content containing the phrase ‘stop the steal’ under our Coordinating Harm policy from Facebook and Instagram,” Facebook wrote in a statement. “We removed the original Stop the Steal group in November and have continued to remove Pages, groups and events that violate any of our policies, including calls for violence. But with continued attempts to organize events against the outcome of the US presidential election that can lead to violence, and use of the term by those involved in Wednesday’s violence in DC, we’re taking this additional step in the lead up to the inauguration.”
Facebook also stated that “after the inauguration, our label on posts that attempt to delegitimize the election results will reflect that Joe Biden is the sitting president.”
Monika Bickert. Head of Global Policy Management at Facebook explained how the platform is now targeting anyone who posts a positive view of those who participated in “events” of January 6th (including the #StopTheSteal rally, not just the Capitol Breach) or even “praises or supports” them in any sense.
“Basically, we’re now removing violence inducing conspiracy networks like QAnon and also militarized social movements. And we’ve removed hundreds of those movements since we put this policy in place and so that put us in a fundamentally different position here….
… And then turning specifically to some of the actions we took in response to the violence in DC yesterday first we’re removing any content that praises or supports the violence or that is posted by those who participated in it. So for instance this would include if somebody had shared footage of himself uh you know running into a building storming a building or an office or if somebody was praising that action that’s content that we would remove.”
Also they are punishing the discussion of bringing weapons ANYWHERE in America. (Like, to a gun-show? Or the range? A Shooting Competition Or a hunting trip? Yup.)
“And then the second policy that we have in place is a framework for identifying when there are locations that are more at risk for violence or for intimidation through the threat of violence. Where we should be applying the same protections that we apply to say schools and polling places and houses of worship and so we what that policy means is basically we now have a policy that says during this time of heightened risk we will remove any calls for people to bring weapons to any location in the United States not just in Washington DC but anywhere and that includes protests.“
If Their AI “Predicts Something MIGHT Violate” Community Standards Facebook will Shadow Ban It
Guy Rosen, Facebook’s VP of Integrity, described how the company targets speech it decides is “dangerous.” “We have a system that is able to freeze commenting on threads in cases where our systems are detecting that there may be a thread that has hate speech or violence… these are all things we’ve built over the past three-four years as part of our investments into the integrity space our efforts to protect the election,” Rosen said. Even more disturbingly, if the AI even ‘thinks’ you “might” violate their standards, they will “limit the spread” of your speech.
“These are things to help limit the spread of content that could potentially lead to further civil unrest, further violence and it includes things such as Monica mentioned; identifying and removing any calls to bring arms to locations anywhere across the US, limiting the spread of content based on signals from our AI systems if they predict something might violate our community standards, in areas such as hate speech or graphic violence or incitement to violence we may limit the spread of that content.”
They Admit FB Has Too Much Power, But Claim They Must Act
‘If we don’t do it, who will?’ is a justification that has been used for many illegal and immoral actions throughout the years, yet that is the justification Facebook is giving for exercising massive censorship and what they admit are efforts to manage and control information during the 2020 Election and beyond. Their actions extend into another justification that has been used by dictators from Rome to the Third Reich “Für Ihre Sicherheit”, For Your Safety.
Nick Clegg, Facebook Head of Global Affairs: “There has been quite a lot of disquiet expressed by many leaders around the world, from the President of Mexico to Alexei Navalny in Russia, and Chancellor Angela Merkel and others saying, ‘well this shows that private companies have got too much power…’ we agree with that,” “Ideally we wouldn’t be making these decisions on our own, we would be making these decisions in line with our own conformity, with democratically agreed rules and principles. At the moment, those democratically agreed rules don’t exist. We still have to make decisions in real-time.”
Clegg claims the rules to govern the Social Media giant’s behavior “don’t exist”, conservatives, libertarians, even anti-establishment liberals agree that this is a lie. The rules do exist: Facebook must be a publisher with editorial control, or a platform under the First Amendment and cannot be a twisted hybrid of both. It’s time for the American people demand that Facebook, Twitter and other Social media pick a lane and stay in it.
