I have been noticing a disturbing trend on social media lately.
People like myself who are critical of certain issues, especially Leftist token issues like illegal immigration, Muslim refugees and terrorism, and Black Lives Matter, are being inundated by Follows and Friend Requests from those particularly who disagree with our assessments.
Remember what happened to that teacher who made a pro-Trump Facebook post…?
Building on that, I have been seeing a large uptick on my Twitter account of Follows by men and women who blog exclusively in Arabic. Generally, I used to Follow them back, but they would then un-Follow and a week later, Follow again.
I began to realize that this may be an intimidation tactic to bully me into shutting up and not expressing my opinions. Now, I automatically Block them. I don’t need the anguish.
Facebook and Twitter are hugely slanted, and you are an anomaly in the world of the Leftist social medias. Don’t forget that Facebook’s “fake news” alerts are controlled almost ENTIRELY by liberals with an obvious agenda.
Yes, double standards abound and a new one has just reared its ugly head.
“The way in which Facebook polices content on its network is under scrutiny again after it was revealed that a post in which a user called for white women to be ‘hunted and killed’ was deemed to not be a violation of community standards.
‘White women should be hunted and killed then we won’t get white babies who think the(y) own the world,’ the user posted.
When the post was reported by another user for ‘hate speech,’ Facebook responded with the message, ‘We reviewed the comment you reported for displaying hate speech and found it doesn’t violate our Community Standards.’

Meanwhile, posts by Christians that simply state bible passages in discussions about homosexuality are being removed, while pages devoted to showing grisly mock images of President Trump being assassinated are not taken down.
The social networking giant has also received criticism for several recent incidents during which rapes of women have been been live video streamed on the platform.
Facebook also refused to remove the infamous video where a mentally disabled man was tortured by a group of young black men when it was reported.”
Evidently, both Facebook and Twitter will laboriously squelch any Christian or Conservative views as ‘hate speech’ while defending the right of Black Lives Matter, Hamas, or the Southern Poverty Law Group to spout all sorts of ACTUAL vile hate speech directed at anyone who is not on the extreme Left of the issue.
The fear-mongering liberal that just got taken to task by ICE? Facebook obviously has no issue with that, either. Not a peep.
It’s easy to say, let’s all stop using Facebook and Twitter, but when businesses thrive on lightning communication and postings, especially with the amount of users available, it’s difficult to shut that off.
And they know it.
