If we could somehow issue across Grassfire Nation some "four alarm fire" indicator to get your attention, we'd do it today.
Maybe we need a Bat Signal...
Or perhaps this headline from Gateway Pundit will get your attention...
Zuckerberg's Announcement Means Final Remaining Conservative Voices on Facebook Will Be Eliminated by Election Day
The article was in response to yet another disturbing announcement from Mark Zuckerberg regarding Facebook's efforts to stop "hate speech." Zuckerberg proudly announced that Facebook has launched a new system in which it is ranking organizations based on trustworthiness. Zuck wants to "make sure that the stuff people think is broadly trustworthy." Of course, his far-left team ultimately decides what is trustworthy.
He also wants Facebook's broad powers to edit and censor content to be used to "build a sense of common ground in society." (We wonder if Zuck would think believing in border security or the rights of the unborn or traditional marriage promotes "common ground".) And he's just getting started, saying "we're going to dial up the intensity of that over time."
Apparently, that dog-and-pony show before Congress has done nothing to slow down Facebook's plan to censor and silence opposing voices that don't "build a sense of common ground in society."
And the censoring is already in full swing. A recent report indicates that many conservative sites have seen their Facebook traffic plummet while "liberal publishers actually saw a 2 percent increase in traffic." Meanwhile, even President Trump's official Facebook page has been hit, experiencing a 45 percent drop in engagement over the past six months.
+ + Why Zuckerberg feels so emboldened
If you're wondering why Zuckerberg feels so free to openly discuss Facebook's censorship plans after having just been to Congress, it's because he doesn't see it as censorship. He sees it as stopping hate speech and promoting "common ground."
Here at Grassfire, we've been warning about Silicon Valley's growing censorship of conservative voices for many months. Even years. Now, it's all coming to a head. It is possible that social media giants like Facebook will have silenced our voice in time for the midterm elections... if we don't take action.
So we're lighting up the Bat Signal and asking every team member to sign our Stop Censoring Conservatives petition.
Why is it important to sign the petition?
Because it lets us know that you care about this issue. Then, we can connect you to other passionate patriots, along with resources to take action. And we can tell Congress that citizens want this stopped!
If you agree that we cannot allow the "lords" of Silicon Valley to blatantly target and censor conservative speech, then sign the "Stop Targeting Conservatives" petition calling on Congress to investigate the discriminatory practices of Facebook and other social media elites:
(See the full petition language below.)
Again, we wish we could light up the Bat Signal. Or make that call for Thor. Instead, we're sending you this email. Go here now to sign, and please alert your friends.
I am calling on Facebook, Google, Apple and other Silicon Valley elites to stop the practice of targeting and discriminating against conservative and pro-liberty individuals and organizations. I am also calling on Congress to investigate the practices of Silicon Valley that specifically target conservative free speech.
