You thought Facebook was your toy, but it turns out it wasn’t.
He who calls for censorship shall be censored, it seems.
The radical leftist blog Media Matters just got some of their material judged “fake news” by Facebook, which resulted in their algorithm censoring it. Of course, Media Matters was clamoring for Alex Jones to be censored just a few weeks ago.
I don’t know whether this is the work of divine retribution, karma or just the law of lulz, but whatever the case I thank the universe for this ironic twist.
Left-wing opinion site ThinkProgress has found itself censored by Facebook’s ‘fact checkers,’ just weeks after calling on the social network to censor right-wing polemicist Alex Jones.
A ThinkProgress article on Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, published Sunday, was deemed ‘fake news’ by Facebook’s fact checkers. The article itself claimed that Kavanaugh would overturn Roe v Wade, the landmark 1973 case guaranteeing Americans the constitutional right to an abortion, based on snippets of Kavanaugh’s legal rulings and speeches.
The ‘fact checkers’ – in this case the conservative-leaning Weekly Standard – evaluated ThinkProgress’ claims and found them to be false. Sure, Kavanaugh made some statements that hinted at his opposition to Roe v Wade, but he never outright said he’d “kill it,” as the article claims.

Once an article has been deemed false by Facebook, its traffic is restricted and pages that share the offending article will see their traffic and ability to advertise removed. This fake-news purge is part of Facebook’s publicly stated plan to clamp down on election interference and exercise tighter control over what users see on their news feeds.
Who’s the conspiracy theorist now, kikes?
To do this, Facebook has teamed up with third-party ‘fact checkers,’ which include the Associated Press, AFP, and the Weekly Standard. The Standard’s inclusion on the list is widely seen as a cursory nod to the political right, as the news organizations Facebook has previously consulted to decide how to rank news stories mostly lean left-of-center.
Bitter that its article was nixed by a fact-checker from the right, ThinkProgress slammed the Weekly Standard for picking on a left-wing site, and blasted Facebook for “pandering to the right” by consulting such an outlet.
I’m actually surprised Facebook even bothered to include a supposedly right-wing outlet as part of their “fact-checking” team.
But then again, the Weekly Standard is a Jew neocon shill paper, so I’m sure the Zuck felt comfortable that they wouldn’t do anything to harm the interests of Jews.
Fate is not without a sense of irony. Two months before they were censored, ThinkProgress lashed out at Facebook for giving a platform to controversial conspiracy theorist Alex Jones. How, the article argued, could Facebook claim to fight fake news, yet allow Jones a platform to spread “baseless conspiracy theories?”
Sweet, sweet revenge.
As they say, those who live by the censorship, die by the censorship.
Liberals think that censorship can only benefit them in the current climate, as the only ones being censored will be the right.
But Liberals aren’t the ones who own the media, nor do they own these large tech companies – Jews do.
And you better believe Jews will censor shitlibs whenever it suits their agenda to do so, whether to squelch liberal criticisms of Israel, opposition to the latest Middle Eastern war, or promoting genuine socialism over corporate shills.
Liberals will quickly learn to regret the enthusiasm with which they embraced the current wave of censorship.
