Default Conservative Facebook employees

Many thought Trump was talking out his arse again about Facebook being Liberal, including me. Can't wait to see how this unfolds.

Diversity to the left, means as long as you tow the Democrat line we will be diverse.

That goes the same with Tolerance. They will tolerate anyone and anything, as long as they are Liberal Democrats.

I've always looked at Facebook as a social advertisement site for young women and "pretty boys" showing off how smart or sexy or handsome they imagine they appear to others. BOHHH-RRRRINNNNNG!

Back to how liberal it is, I've clicked on some conservative type links a few times, and 50-50, I'll get a PAGE NOT FOUND "error". Especially if it deals with Trump. Zuckerberg must think he is some hot liberal shlt.

Yeah, and watch for the left to run him for POTUS someday.

While I myself have not had posts disappear, I did find it interesting that FB had the cojones to decide what political lean I was and include THEIR decision on my personal info.*

*I did not put this statement so politely on my FB page when I discovered it.

They have, however, made other people's posts disappear, and even locked people's accounts for 'hate speech'. Direct family members, so not just taking some person's word for it.

I have limited my use of FB, decline from political discussions for the most part, and have joined a social media group called MeWe. No censoring, no data mining (that has been found).

Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg adored Obama hosting online events for him and inviting his campaign to use Facebook subscriber data. Of course it was a "scandal" when the Trump campaign availed themselves of the same data.

Moreover Facebook has embraced Resistance driven censorship by both algorithms embedded in software and human editors informed by politicians and radical Leftist organizations like the SPLC. It's incredibly disingenuous to deny this censorship just as it's dishonest to claim it doesn't target Conservatives.

Again, when a left-winger complains about a company's behavior, the responses from the right are typically:
* You're always free to find another company that conducts business as you like,
* You have no right to complain unless you're a stock-holder
* How they conduct their business is their choice, not yours.

But something you guys don't like with how a business runs itself and suddenly it's time for Congressional investigations or White House investigations ( https://www.reuters.com/article/us-u...-idUSKCN1LD1I1 )

Anybody remember the FCC Fairness Doctrine?
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/FCC_fairness_doctrine
The fairness doctrine of the United States Federal Communications Commission (FCC), introduced in 1949, was a policy that required the holders of broadcast licenses both to present controversial issues of public importance and to do so in a manner that was—in the FCC's view—honest, equitable, and balanced.
Unless I'm mistaken, Republicans typically complained about it and saw it as governmental interference.

But now that Trump is in office and "I'm a victim" is his favorite ploy, suddenly we're shifting back to government peeking and poking at businesses....



Some serious questions for the right-wing crowd...
a) Do you support a governmental investigation into these claims about Facebook?
b) Is Facebook violating any law if they are acting as described in post #1's article?

Social media is "social" anything, no? Anyway, I don't see any repression here toward liberal or conservative. I do see jackasses, anal retentives, "smarter-than-thou" trolls like the last one who got banned, and other personally insulting cretins being shown the door here.

Facebook without its members will turn into a nothing in no time flat. Re your questions in red, no and no.

The Left inevitably preaches the only solution to any problem is an expansion of Federal power. Naturally the projection is that Conservatives are ultimately after the same solution. Nothing like conjuring up a baseless attack to provide a distraction from the issue of Facebook censoring Conservatives.

The grossly mislabeled fairness doctrine replaces hyperpartisan silicon valley moguls with Federal bureaucrats. After the IRS program of political repression, the corruption of the FBI and DOJ, and the politicization of the so-called intelligence community , what could go wrong?

Funny, I didn't see a single person on this forum say there should be a governmental investigation. I must have missed something that you saw.....
