Could Mitch Be the Real Root of the Censorship Problem?
In the past week, I have heard from 3 women Bernie Group administrators who are restricted from posting to any other groups than the one or ones they administer, and the restriction goes to March 28, for three months. How convenient! 3 months puts their release after the Super Tuesday elections!
What could be more obvious? I am sure this following charming puff piece below is sincere and well intended and probably parsed numerous times by numerous highly paid staff members, not just the one who ostensibly wrote it, out there on 1 Hacker Way in San Mateo, California. Please keep in mind all of that while you read their explanation, in the form of an Opinion in the largest paper in the first state to vote in the 2020 Democratic primaries.
This sanguine little puff piece in---of all papers!---the Des Moines Register, deserves a realistic response from someone who knows part of the truth, and that is not so much that Fake News Ads popped up in 2016, a charge/suggestion I made back in 2016 repeatedly and was repeatedly ignored. Hundreds of such posts showed up in the Facebook group I started called Bernie Sanders: Advice and Strategies to Win in 2016 (now changed to 2020). I solved the problem by removing all of the Russians, Serbs, Macedonians, and Ukrainians from the group, and the entire problem abruptly and entirely stopped!
I Fedexed the entire board of directors letters about this and a few other matters~~~I mean personal letters in snail mail envelopes, and never got a single reply. Eventually, Mr. Zuckerberg was called before the US Senate partially on the same matters, and mostly of that I remember was him saying "I'll get back to you, Senator...."
Facebook is not the usual corporation, by any stretch of the imagination. Maybe it has grown so quickly and so big that it can't have telephones or emails to ever be able to reach anyone. That access has all been totally and resolutely hidden, and I do understand the reasons for doing so. But if you get thrown into FB jail, and I have 39 times in 3 1/2 years, the "Appeal" process is absolutely meaningless and never works. You just have to be patient until the restriction is up.
They end the puff piece with this:
wholesale improvements to how we approach election security.
