“If liberty means anything at all, it means the right to tell people what they do not want to hear.” – George Orwell in “1984”.
Attempts to censor “competing narratives” is probably just a tip-off that certain individuals are afraid their political ideas will be unable to withstand the questions asked or the test of time – Gatestone Institute.
I know some cases where people have been censored and excluded from Facebook for criticizing Islam and Muslim mass immigration.
In 2008, The EU introduced its Framework Decision against Racism and Xenophobia, threatening 3 years imprisonment for Islam criticism.

The following declaration of censorship by Zuckerberg shows that Facebook is committing suicide – as are the corporate media.
For people know these media are undemocratic and mendaceous
However, Jew Zuckerberg hardly has a choice: E.g. Germany has introduced legislation imposing fines of up to 53 mio. euros for bringing posts which displease Jewish Supermason Angela Merkel.
Below: Supermason Merkel demands Facebook chief Mark Zuckerberg to censor Facebook – suicidal for the social media. This is planned by the Council on Foreign Relations – there known as the Merkel-Plan.
Global Res. 2 Febr. 2018: On Wednesday, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg posted a notice outlining extraordinary plans by the social media company to monitor all the postings and messages of its users, censor independent journalism, and use artificial intelligence (AI) to report users to the police and intelligence agencies.
Zuckerberg began his post, released in conjunction with the company’s quarterly earnings report, by declaring that 2017 was a “hard year” for Facebook.
“The world feels anxious and divided—and that played out on Facebook. We’ve seen abuse on our platform, including interference from nation states, the spread of news that is false, sensational and polarizing, and debate about the utility of social media.”
Facebook, he writes, has the responsibility to “amplify the good and prevent harm. That is my personal challenge for 2018.”
In Facebook’s “newspeak,” this means that the company will act aggressively this year to suppress the spread of information online and censor content, under the guise of combatting “fake news” and “Russian meddling.”
The truly ominous implications of this project are outlined in Zuckerberg’s post. Among Facebook’s initiatives, he writes, is “new technology to detect suicidal posts that has helped first responders reach more than 100 people who needed help quickly, and we’ve built AI systems to flag suspicious behavior around elections in real time and remove terrorist content.”
Smart French President, Rothschild Banker, and NWO one-world state advocate, Emmanuel Macron, also goes after”fake news” which he does not like. He will ban “fake news” by means of Legislation at the end of 2018 – The Washington Post 10 Jan. 2018.
In other words, Facebook has introduced AI systems to collect, monitor and interpret all the information posted on its social media platform.
Zuckerberg points to the sweeping scope of the company’s artificial intelligence plans later: “Our goal with AI is to understand the meaning of all the content on Facebook.”
Every single post, photo, video, message, comment, reaction and share will be fed into the company’s increasingly powerful computer systems to be analyzed for “harmful” content, and reported to the police and intelligence agencies as deemed necessary.

Zuckerberg’s central pretense—tha
Most significantly, Zuckerberg stressed the company’s determination to make sure that “the information you see on Facebook comes from broadly trusted and high-quality sources, in order to counter misinformation and polarization.”
Most people trust – unjustified – the big media”.
In other words, corporate media sources will be promoted, while other publications, even those that “have intense followings,” will be demoted. As for being “shown somewhat less,” what Zuckerberg means is that they will be blocked from reaching a broader audience. More simply, they will be censored.
Acc. to CNBC 22 Oct. 2017, in the 2. quarter of 2017, Google spent $4.17 million lobbying Congress, while Facebook spent $2.85 million and Twitter spent $120,000 according to government disclosures.

In addition to censoring news from alternative sources, Zuckerberg states at the beginning of his post that Facebook is working to “show fewer viral videos” because such content is not “good for people’s well-being and for society.”
The viral videos Zuckerberg is referring to include footage of police violence, social exposures like reporting on last year’s Grenfell Tower inferno that exposed social inequality in London, and documentation of the war crimes carried out by the US military. Any such content will be “demoted,” which Zuckerberg later notes “reduces an article’s traffic by 80 percent.”
t Facebook will promote sources that “people have confidence” in—is a fraud. Only 32% of Americans trust corporative media acc. to Gallup. The use of social media to read news has been growing exponentially, reaching two-thirds of the US population according to a poll by the Pew Research Center.
The growth in the popularity of Facebook and other social media networks was in large measure due to the fact that they allowed their users access to information and viewpoints unavailable through mainstream media outlets. Facebook, Google, Twitter have declared they will promote the official views.
Facebook, Google, Twitter and other giant social media companies—working closely with intelligence agencies and governments – are seeking to leverage their role as mechanisms of communication to become instruments of censorship and repression – even by means of artificial intelligence, into a mechanism for police control and dictatorship.
There is only one thing to do: Quit these social media – and with your acquaintancies there form smaller private blogs. Otherwise, you will fall an easy victim to the Merkel-Macron-EU plan
