So the leader of the Donetsk breakaway Republic was blown-up last week.
A massive, massive deal that the US media just brushed over.
Now Facebook is censoring posts IN RUSSIAN by government officials about the killing!
Deputy speaker of the Russian State Duma, Pyotr Tolstoy, says that both Instagram and Facebook have deleted his posts on the recent killing of the head of the self-proclaimed Donetsk Republic, Aleksandr Zakharchenko.
“Instagram has deleted my post about Aleksandr Zakharchenko’s death together with his photo. This is “freedom of speech” according to [Facebook founder and CEO Mark] Zuckerberg,” Tolstoy said in a Facebook post about the removal. He attached a screenshot in which moderators claim he violated “community guidelines” that recommend users abstain from ‘propagating violence’.
Инстаграм удалил мой пост о гибели Александра Захарченко с его фотографией. "Свобода слова" по версии Цукерберга.
The moderators did not go into details but warned that if Tolstoy makes similar posts again his account could be suspended, either for some time or completely.
Shortly after Tolstoy complained about the Instagram incident, moderators deleted his post on Facebook in which Tolstoy described Zakharchenko’s killing as an apparent attack by Ukrainian nationalists and expressed condolences to friends and family of the late leader of the Donetsk People’s Republic. Facebook has owned the Instagram image-sharing service since 2012.
It is one thing to be censored in English.
Everyone gets censored in English. Because there is an army of Pakis that understand English and just censor whatever. They are literally ordered to censor white people. That was leaked.
But who is moderating Russian Facebook? You have to speak Russian. And most Russian-speakers would not think it appropriate to delete posts from a politician talking about an assassination.
So basically, that had to have come down from the American base – like “yo, censor this shit about this guy the CIA assassinated in Russia.”
And you want to tell me about meddling in politics?
This is of course the same kind of meddling that Facebook and the rest of the tech industry is doing in America. The exact same kind.
They have created monopolies – due to the leniency of the federal government and refusal to enforce existing antitrust laws – and now they use these monopolies to control global politics.
