We know conservatives faced unprecedented censorship in the 2020 election, but Mark Zuckerberg recently revealed just how bad it actually got. He even reveals FBI involvement in the censorship…
In an interview with podcaster Joe Rogan, Zuckerberg explained that the FBI essentially told him to suppress the Hunter Biden laptop story a month before the election in 2020.
“The background here is the FBI, I think, basically came to [Facebook] and was like, ‘Hey, just so you know, like, you should be on high alert. There was, we thought that there was a lot of Russian propaganda in the 2016 election. We have it on notice that basically, there’s about to be some kind of dump that’s similar to that. So just be vigilant.”
When Rogan asked if the FBI specifically mentioned the Hunter laptop. Zuckerberg replied that he doesn’t “remember if it was that specifically” but indicated he felt the laptop “fit the pattern.”
Of course, the Facebook CEO doesn’t actually think he did anything wrong. He explained how much better HIS censorship was than other social media giants. Telling Rogan, “what Twitter did is they said, ‘You can’t share this at all.’ We didn’t do that… I think it was five or seven days when it was basically being determined whether it was false, the distribution on Facebook was decreased, but people were still allowed to share it. So you could still share it; you could still consume it.”
This is called a “shadow ban,” and FFP faces this censorship regularly.
The result of this effort by Zuckerberg is undoubtedly election interference. Most voters did not know about Hunter’s laptop before they cast their votes. That means they didn’t know about “10% for the big guy,” Hunter’s rampant drug use, that there were pictures of underage women on the laptop, or that Joe was seemingly complicit in Hunter’s seriously messed up lifestyle.
That’s a bigger deal than 10 January 6ths.
