Facebook to censor attacks on the elite

https://www.forbes.com/sites/kimberleespeakman/2021/10/13/facebook-will-remove-sexualized-and-degrading-attacks-on-politicians-celebrities-and-journalists/?sh=3de14ec11d66


Facebook Will Remove Sexualized And Degrading Attacks On Politicians, Celebrities And Journalists


The new policy is intended to protect public figures like politicians, celebrities, journalists, public rights defenders or content creators by removing profiles, pages, groups or events dedicated to sexualizing a public figure, “derogatory sexualized” edited images and drawings of them and “unwanted sexualized commentary” flagged by them.

The company said it will also remove attacks that “weaponize a public figure’s appearance,” such as negative physical descriptions which are tagged, mentioned or posted on their account.

Facebook said it decided to remove this content due to feedback from “a large number of global stakeholders.”

Facebook said it will also remove content, such as direct messages or comments on a profile or post, that is considered “mass harassment” by an individual, but the person will need to work with the company to provide more information and context on the attacks.

So the elites are a group of cowards? Are they afraid of the unwashed masses so they get their useful idiot of a tool, Zucker Booger, to strong-arm censor everyone?

All this to protect joe Biden.

I wouldn’t really have an issue if they had just taken this stance before.

Why not just apply this to everyone and it would be a non issue.

So not even misinformation or threats, but simply unflattering characterizations of politicians, eh?

That’s one of the best weapons against them. Making fun of them publicly. They know this

Time for everyone to get off of Facebook and make laws restricting where Facebook plug-ins exist.
