Charlotte, NC — Facebook has been in the public eye regularly in the past few weeks due to whistleblowers that have decided to speak out against the organization. In what mainstream media has dubbed ‘The Facebook Papers,’ mainstream media outlets have started a coordinated attack on the social media platform, and in turn conservatives.
You do not have to look far to see the coordinated effort of mainstream media outlets. The Associated Press shares how the papers are a coordinated effort by 17 American news outlets. Accusations of poor oversight, promoting ‘hate,’ and divisive content distribution are promoted by the outlets as they continue to attack the organization.
Some conservative media outlets have covered news of the Facebook leaks, but I believe many have failed to see the underlying efforts of the mainstream media. They are painting a narrative with the whistleblower files that are being shared. A narrative that will ultimately end up in conservatives falling into a trap.
Facebook is being accused of divisive content and hate distribution, but so far it has specifically been focused in India. The organization was accused of seeding religious and political abuse in the nation as they ‘failed to curb divisive content. There has been a significant amount of coverage regarding India.
Another point that has been covered is a generic statement that Facebook’s internal language allowed hate and terrorism to happen. This part of the complaints specifically targeted the Middle East and the Gaza area. According to the report, Facebook contributed to anti-Muslim rhetoric amid violence in the Middle East.
Facebook responded to the accusations at the time and called it an algorithm error, but the issue has garnered new attention. The underlying suggestion is that Facebook was fueling these things as a discriminating factor against Muslims and fueling hate and mistreatment of people in those areas.
Then finally we get to the point where the Capitol riots were brought up. Facebook is accused of failing to block the spread of misinformation and inciteful content, according to this AP article. The suggestion is that Facebook was fueling rising extremism across the United States, specifically among “radical conservative groups” as the mainstream media likes to call them.
Reuters reports that the whistleblower is accusing the company of continuing its promotion of hate. The article says that more unrest will happen if Facebook is allowed to continue without government intervention and oversight.
If you cannot see through what is happening here, let me explain. The radical left is on a mission to take down Facebook, and in turn, continue to silence conservatives and Christians. You can see the mission against Facebook clearly in the information above. No matter how you feel about the social media giant, anyone can agree that government intervention in private business is a dangerous step.
The part where they are going after conservatives is also easy to see. They want to tie Facebook to the Capitol events on January 6 as much as possible. They want Americans to believe that the only way to prevent another “insurrection,” government must take over social media platforms.
Democrats will not argue against such a move. After all, they want to keep close tabs on their political enemies. The mainstream media and the radical left will work to implement measures that they claim will allow Facebook to be safe for everyone, but will allow government oversight.
The calls are already starting. The Facebook Oversight Board is already saying that the organization needs to provide more transparency. The CNN article here accuses the company of downplaying its role in the events of January 6. Again, the next move is to say the only way to prevent it again is for government oversight.
Finally, the last move will come against Christians. The radical left has long argued that conservative Christians were partially responsible for COVID, COVID misinformation, and the support of a “radical President,” like Donald Trump. While some Trump supporters have fled for more friendly social media platforms, large groups of conservative Christians remain on Facebook.
As the government moves to provide direct oversight of Facebook, it will allow them to control content distribution on the platform. You won’t have to worry about seeing your favorite devotional, posts that are pro-Israel, or anything faith-related. That is, unless it promotes the agenda of the radical left.
It was not so long ago that left-wing groups were calling on Facebook to create a bias review for pro-Israel content. If you think that stops with just Israel, think again. The government will be in charge of what you consume on Facebook and will work to establish a bias review of all faith-based content.
This move is much more than simply an attack on a social media organization. Do I believe that Facebook has issues internally with its algorithms? Most likely, yes. They also have issues with silencing and censoring conservatives and showing bias towards radical causes.
But their current issues will pale in comparison with what they are going to do if the radical left is successful in their attacks on Facebook. A government-regulated or ran social media platform is on the horizon and takes us one step closer toward alignment with the Chinese Communist Party. Conservatives and Christians are both on the radar of the radical left and this will be another step in their agenda to eliminate both from society.
