Looks like Biden has found someone else besides Putin to call “a killer.”
Most humorously of all, the latest target of Biden’s eyebrow raising ranting and raving is none other than Facebook, which is, in fact, a killer on multiple levels, domestically and internationally.
For once, Biden’s gaffes hit an actual bullseye, at least to a degree.
Unfortunately, Biden’s ranting and raving about Facebook had nothing to do with the face that the platform openly permits massive BLM/Antifa protests, not to mention straight up government-sanctioned genocide overseas, but everything to do with his apparently failed efforts to have at least 70 percent of Americans vaccinated, at least in part, by July 4.
Which is why Biden had a rather outsized response to a simple inquiry from a reporter, which merely asked Biden’s opinion on the role played by social media giants regarding COVID “misinformation.”
Biden replied rather quickly and harshly, correctly labeling Facebook’s behavior while incorrectly labeling virtually everything else, as demonstrated below.
“They’re killing people! I mean really, they’re, look, the only pandemic we have is among the unvaccinated. And they’re killing people!” [Source: The Blaze]
Really? So now the “only” pandemic the United States faces is from the unvaccinated?
In that case, could the constant fear mongering regarding delta variants, lambda variants, zeta variants, and who knows what else kindly make an exit from the media?
Needless to say, Facebook did not take very kindly to the truth (does it ever?), in spite of the fact that Biden was raging away about supposed misinformation, rather than actually deadly practices that the company routinely engages in, whether explicitly or implicitly.
Which is why it is no surprise that one of many Facebook sycophants (err, “spokespeople”), was sure to immediately defend the company’s supposedly impressive track record on helping vaccinate the public.
“The fact is that more than 2 billion people have viewed authoritative information about COVID-19 and vaccines on Facebook, which is more than any other place on the internet. More than 3.3 million Americans have also used our vaccine finder tool to find out where and how to get a vaccine.” [Source: The Blaze]
“An authoritative source.” What a joke!
Since when did a social media platform (an anti-First Amendment platform, no less) become a public health service?
Moreover, if Facebook would like to assume such responsibilities, isn’t it long since time that the unwieldy corporate behemoth faces the same type of regulation Democrats have long demanded of virtually every other business enterprise?
Regardless, the fact remains that Facebook has long since shamelessly dived into bed with the devious Democrats, and Biden was apparently scolded behind closed doors for the one time that he makes a statement that’s actually somewhat truthful, albeit misguided in intent.
And, in a rather predictable puppet move, Biden walked back his commentary on Facebook within days, much to the amusement of various actually sentient observers.
“I had just read that on the Facebook — Facebook pointed out, it was pointed out that Facebook, of all the misinformation, sixty percent of the misinformation came from twelve individuals … So I was asked that question about, what do I think is happening? Facebook isn’t killing people; these twelve people are out there, giving misinformation.” [Source: Breitbart]
He “had just read?” Great preparation for the leader of the supposed free world.
While Biden’s continuous gaffes have long plagued his political career, insidious social media giants that work hand-in-hand with the government are a rather new, and seriously troublesome development.
Particularly when such a union illustrates such a disturbing parallel with George Orwell’s 1984.
Not to mention when the federal government does not even bother to hide such a grotesque union anymore, as revealed by Psaki’s latest insanity.
Not only does she openly reveal that Facebook and the federal government now work hand in hand, but she actually criticized Facebook for not moving “quickly enough” in combating the spread of supposed “disinformation.”
“Within the Surgeon General’s Office, we’re flagging posts for Facebook that spread disinformation … We’re working with doctors and medical professionals to connect medical experts with people, who are popular with their audiences, with accurate information and boost trusted content. So, we’re helping get trusted content out there …
It’s important to take faster action against harmful posts … As you all know, information travels quite quickly on social media platforms. Sometimes it’s not accurate, and Facebook needs to move more quickly to remove harmful violative posts.” [Source: Fox News]
Well then. Talk about cracking the whip …
Something suggests it has been long since time for Americans to abandon the social media giant, as perhaps one of the only ways to take away its power is by not providing it with any in the first place …
