The advent of 'social media' has been heralded as a new, unbiased forum where ideology, politics and opinions are able to compete on a level playing field. From talk radio to social networking sites like Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and MySpace, these forums are generally assumed to reflect the true voice of their subscribers - untainted by the liberal bias of the mainstream media.
Unfortunately, this is changing.
I was recently stopped by Facebook for trying to post an article by Star Parker, entitled "Blacks Should Embrace NRA Gun Proposal."
Over the next few weeks, I received several notices that my account had been compromised and was locked. I needed to change my password and respond to gyrations demanded by Facebook.
These password and login issues could be legitimate. However, I have used the same computer and password on Facebook for many years.
What raised a red flag for me was that numerous pro-gun writers encountered the same "security concerns" from Facebook. Strangely enough, at the same time Facebook was encountering "security glitches" for mostly pro-gun posters, it appears that elitist and avowed leftist George Soros, spent slightly over $10M buying 341,000 shares in Facebook. Another coincidence?
While most Americans understand that our media tilts left, what they don't understand is that being denied access to opposing views is an extremely effective tactic of our leftist media. Is it possible that Facebook has taken sides?
Is it possible that Facebook is advancing and advocating a particular agenda that coincidentally, is the same agenda of their major new investor? It appears quite a few on the right think so, and they're fighting back.
The Tea Party Community launched its own social networking site after enduring years of censorship and liberal bullying on Facebook.
For those who choose to stay on Facebook, they should have the right to have access to enough information in order to make informed decisions. Unfortunately, there is a very real possibility that Facebook is lying to its users in order to limit opposing points of view to advance and advocate the agenda of George Soros.
I wonder how many other Facebook shareholders are aware of the fact that the company they have invested in could now be used as a tool to dis-arm our country.
