Facebook has reportedly allowed millions of VIP users to violate its content rules without being punished

Facebook has become known in recent years for the ruthless enforcement of its internal content rules, to the point that posting anything on the site can sometimes feel like opening your mouth in Stalinist Russia—you never know if you're going to become an Unperson by saying the wrong thing. But the social media company has apparently allowed millions of users to skirt around those rules without being punished:

In God We Trust. Government—Not So Much!

Those who relish the unyielding power of the state over the individual have had a good year. Lockdowns by tyrannical governors and state and local bureaucrats, along with expansive authority seized out of thin air by the CDC and other arms of the federal government, have made America almost unrecognizable as a bastion of freedom.

The smear campaign against the Great Barrington Declaration

In October 2020, along with Professor Sunetra Gupta, we authored the Great Barrington Declaration, in which we argued for a ‘focused protection’ pandemic strategy. We called for better protection of older and other high-risk people, while arguing that children should be allowed to go to school and young adults should be free to live more normal lives. We understood that it might lead to vigorous and heated discussions, but we did not expect a multi-pronged propaganda campaign that gravely distorted our arguments and smeared us. We are just three public-health scientists, after all. So how and why did this slanderous counterattack emerge?

Big Tech Report Card: Amazon, Twitter, Apple Earn Industry Huge ‘F’

By almost any measure, the first three months of 2021 were the worst ever for online freedom. Amazon, Twitter, Apple, Google, Facebook, YouTube and others proved to the world that the Big Tech censorship of conservatives is a reality. And they did so in disturbing, authoritarian ways that highlight their unchecked power over information and our political process.

Message to American companies: quit suppressing speech!

Free speech is not just a Constitutional protection that protects us from government tyranny, but it is a guiding principle of our society and a cornerstone of our liberty. One group of Americans with one ideological belief system should not use their power to suppress the speech of others. A number of conservative constitutionalists have come together to hold US corporations accountable when they become weaponized corporate tools of the left.

Data Prove People Self-Censor In Fear of Woke Mobs

Deeply illiberal mobs of so-called “progressive, anti-racists” have escaped our nation’s college and university campuses and threaten many other institutions, including museums, sports and entertainment, corporations like Coca-Cola, and even our elementary, middle, and high schools.

Social media: no equal Tweetment for Conservatives

Section 230 of the Communications Act is being abused by Twitter and Facebook as a shield for censorship as they block conservative content and negative news stories about liberal politicians. The American people can make up their own minds and don’t need censors. The social media blockade of Hunter Biden stories resulted in Congress and the FCC taking a hard look at 230, and its anti-First Amendment unintended consequences. The Senate Judiciary is also issuing subpoenas to social media execs.

ACRU Demands Freedom To Read for any US News Article

The New York Post ran a second story on October 15th claiming it has evidence Hunter Biden openly lobbied a Chinese energy firm to cash in on his family's influence. Once again, social media giants Facebook and Twitter are blocking citizen access to these stories. Media censors do not have the right to supersede our First Amendment protections. #freedomtoread
