Comrade Zuckstein: Personally Approved Censorship of Critics of Communism by ‘Fakebook’

Raw Story: According to a report from the Washington Post, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg caved to the government of Vietnam and allowed the censoring of critics of the country’s leaders and policies.

According to the report, Zuckerberg was made aware of complaints from the Vietnam government and agreed with them out of fear of seeing Facebook banned in a profitable market.

The report states, “In America, the tech CEO is a champion of free speech, reluctant to remove even malicious and misleading content from the platform. But in Vietnam, upholding the free speech rights of people who question government leaders could have come with a significant cost in a country where the social network earns more than $1 billion in annual revenue, according to a 2018 estimate by Amnesty International.

The Post is reporting that three insiders have come forward, after being promised anonymity, and claimed the tech mogul came down on the side of the government.

“So Zuckerberg personally decided that Facebook would comply with Hanoi’s demands,” the Post is reporting, adding, “Ahead of Vietnam’s party congress in January, Facebook significantly increased censorship of “anti-state” posts, giving the government near-total control over the platform, according to local activists and free speech advocates.”  Read more..

  1. Obviously Facebook mines your posts, especially private groups, for targets. Men get ads with scantly clad girls soliciting them, that have hundreds of posts, (all following their peter) and…..well….it all looked rather fake so I broke my basic rule and commented. I asked how many really believe this person is genuine and not just “sexual baiting on Facebook”.

    How fast do you think my comment was banned and the sex baiting continued…..minutes.

    • The ads are to users, like the alphabet to a second grader. Your most vulnerable time to be seduced or ‘grabbed” and with what bait, is predictable within 5 minutes.
      They didn’t need it for the masses, it is only necessary for mopping up around the edges.
      If a poll shows 100 short, then it could be deployed and viola.

  2. It’s not censorship, it is censorship by proxy.

    The government wants it’s cake and eat it too. By “controlling” speech of a publisher through legislation, it is censorship. The correct way to do it, is break up the company. Percentage of market share is what must be managed. This means Google, Facebook, and Amazon all have to sell their portions that exceed the limits for monopoly. Wal mart also. That is where I would start. Remove the ability for walmart to sell groceries. It is an outlet for garbage and it kills small and medium business, and forced everyone into a singular enclosed space during a pandemic.

    • It looks like Facebook, Adelson, Cambridge Analytica, Right Wing UK operatives, and other Israeli interests , conspired to put Trump in the whitehouse with designs of undemocratic intentions. Any amateur carnival barker can be trained to select people out of a crowd, and guess their date of birth within ten days. This came from India with the elephants.
      Imagine what can be done, with a database sorted by DOB, and using the conglomerate of archetypal renderings that is now tripled or quadrupled by real time data analysis. Poor people use astrology, power uses calendrics. The images are all that is needed. The rest is frosting.

    • The concept of market share is not politically attractive nor is it understood by most people.
      Precisely why, anti-trust legislation has lagged. And now , we have this.

    • The barely-concealed corporatism of the ruling elites is breaking down, David. The events of 1/6 tore the mask off the real threat to democracy and the rule of law in the USA, Bannon’s out and out Christo-fascism. The Cult of Trump is totally into it. As Sinclair Lewis wrote, “When Fascism comes to America, it will be wrapped in the flag and carrying a cross.”

    • It came with the war on drugs, and both parties clapped and celebrated. We have about a dozen lawmakers who do not wear the flag and crosses in the entire 3 branch system.
      Even the first indigenous cabinet member claims catholic to avoid the ostracizing.
      Eliminate wealthy or religious candidates. That is step one. What we have is not representative of the people. 50% non-religious.

  3. Now the AshkeNazis have Asian Countries
    ” Licking Their Feet”
    Is China Next?
    Let’s ask Menachem Begin what the J*ews think of Asian People:
    “Our Race is the Master Race. We J*ews are divine Gods on this planet.
    We are as different from the inferior races as they are from insects.
    In fact, compared to our race, other races are beasts and animals, cattle at best.
    Other races are considered as human excrement.
    Our destiny is to rule over the inferior races.
    Our earthly kingdom will be ruled by our leader with a rod of iron.
    The masses will lick our feet and serve us as our slaves.”

    – Israeli Prime Minister Menachem Begin in a speech to the Knesset, quoted in “Begin and the Beasts,” New Statesman, June 25, 1982 by Amnon Kapeliouk.
