Liberals celebrated a decision by the Facebook review board to confirm the social media company’s decision to ban former president Donald Trump following the January 6 Capitol Hill insurrection. But if they can do it to the President of the United States, they can definitely do it to you too.

  • Funny that people should be cheered by corporate censorship.

    By Mussolini, fascism is corporatism and he should know, as one of corporatism’s best known political beneficiaries.

    I think Goebbels would have looked at Facebook and started laughing. “Oh, c’mon. I mean, yeah, the public is stupid, but they aren’t THIS stupid. There are limits.” It’s the Scott Adams version of a big city newspaper. Keep the noise-to-signal ratio as high as possible without losing the ghost of the essence of the hint of the flavor of news and information, and pull in the ad dollars.
    Has anyone ever actually bought anything off a Facebook ad? It’s like those ads Yahoo! used to have of people in silhouette dancing in a small vertical for mortgages. “Right. Those are the people I want to give my financial information to.” Do you think the companies will finally realize ads of Facebook are like wheels on a fish?
