Facebook has decided that it knows better than its own users, and needs to re-educate them.
This is the kind of arrogant behavior you’d expect from Big Tech.
Instead of allowing people freedom of expression, Facebook only wants you to have the freedom to express the opinions they also believe.
Somehow, they think this is going to go well.
This pop-up will appear when you first log in to Facebook, letting members know that Facebook cares about “preventing extremism” on their platform. It lures members in with letting them know that “others in your situation have received confidential support.”National File
This isn’t supportive, it’s abrasive.
People want to talk to their friends about whatever they have on their minds, not what Facebook thinks is appropriate.
They’re even allowing people to snitch on their friends.
That’s a great way to create enemies.
We’re wondering how broad their definition of hate groups is.
Would be no surprise if it basically meant all Trump supporters, and it looks like it may well do.
Facebook has also linked the Centre for Analysis of the Radical Right (CARR), a U.K. research center that focuses on far-right activities. CARR has listed a number of far-right symbols, including ancient Germanic runes to cartoon Pepe the Frog.National File
They’re also attempting to ensure people hold the correct opinions on topics like immigration.
If Facebook thinks a Pepe the Frog symbol is extreme, and that manipulating opinions is fine, then that shows just how left-wing they are.
It’s time for patriots to stop using platforms like Facebook, and come over to Gab or Telegram instead.
Silly interventions like this don’t exist there.
