The moment that President Trump was banned from social media, Big Tech revealed itself as the culprit behind the fake news hysteria. For years, Trump warned the American people about the dangers of social media and the false narrative being pushed by the Democrats. But often being viewed as a villain, many people opted to not listen to Trump and continued to let Big Tech control their lives. Now, it appears that social media was caught, yet again, burying a story that pertained to the co-founder of the so-called progressive movement – Black Lives Matter.
On Thursday, The Post released a story about the Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Khan-Cullors. According to the story, the co-founder was caught snatching up high-priced homes in Beverly Hills. The price tag for these homes came to a staggering total of $3.2 million. And guess what – it doesn’t end there as the story goes on to suggest that the homes were purchased using BLM funds.
Last year, the country was crippled by riots and looting led by the grassroots movement. For BLM, they were tired of being forgotten and finally demanded a seat at the table to discuss the future of America. But while their intention might be to better the world, it appears that the founder only cares about bettering herself.
As the story broke, users on the social media platform, Facebook, noticed that something strange was happening when they went to share the story. Obviously, using funds meant to help Black Lives to buy luxury homes is a big deal, but none of the major news outlets ran the article. As for Facebook, they blocked anyone from sharing or posting the story on their platform.
One of the accounts that were blocked from sharing the story was The Daily Mail, which reached out to Facebook for an explanation. According to Facebook, “As per our Community Standards: We do not allow people to post personal or confidential information about yourself or of others. We remove content that shares, offers or solicits personally identifiable information or other private information that could lead to physical or financial harm, including financial, residential, and medical information, as well as private information obtained from illegal sources.”
In response to Facebook’s stance, The New York Post released a statement saying, “This decision is so arbitrary as to be laughable. Does Facebook know how many newspapers, magazine and websites highlight the real estate purchases of the rich and famous? The next time People magazine covers Kim Kardashian’s latest mansion purchase, will it violate any community standards? How about running a picture of the resort Ted Cruz is staying at?”
As more and more stories and articles are censored, people are realizing that President Trump wasn’t crazy when he warned America of the power and resources held by social media giants.
