Usually, when you get your hand caught in the cookie jar, there is some guilt and an apology. But instead Press Secretary Psaki didn’t seem to be bothered by the information she was relaying. Psaki admitted that the Biden Administration is actively involved in banning “misinformation” spreaders on social media sites. AKA conservatives…
“White House press secretary Jen Psaki when she said: “We are in regular touch with these social media platforms, and those engagements typically happen through members of our senior staff, but also members of our COVID-19 team.”
Psaki continued: “We’ve increased disinformation research and tracking within the surgeon general’s office. We’re flagging problematic posts for Facebook that spread disinformation.”
President Joe Biden’s press secretary then described the “proposed changes that we have made to social media platforms, including Facebook.”
The proposed changes include this downright Orwellian quip from Psaki:
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—posts that will be within their policies for removal often remain up for days. That’s too long. The information spreads too quickly.
One day later, at her daily press briefing, Psaki doubled down on the administration’s pro-censorship position.
“It shouldn’t come as any surprise that we’re in regular touch with social media platforms,” she said, adding that “we work to engage with them to better understand the enforcement of social media platform policies.”
Then came this chilling statement: “You shouldn’t be banned from one platform and not others if you—for providing misinformation out there,” Psaki said.”
They are suppressing conservatives and think it’s no big deal. Where is the outrage? Who is to say what misinformation is? We have already seen that Facebook bans conservatives at the drop of a hat. Psaki wants people banned faster to prevent their message from getting out. If Trump had said this about Libs they would have crucified him. But I guess it’s ok to silence half the country now, maybe this is what Biden meant by unity, conform, or else be silenced.
