Empathy Fail: Social Media Giant Now Allows Death Threats

The stunning ridiculousness and bloated sense of importance amongst Big Tech and their social media platforms peaked this week when Facebook announced they will be temporarily changing their policy to allow death threats against Russians.

Both Facebook and Instagram will now allow users to post violent threats against certain Russian and pro-Russian politicians, as well as ordinary Russian citizens who have virtually nothing to do with Putin’s military actions in Ukraine.

Social media giants similarly allow death threats against most conservatives on their platforms as well, choosing only to protect those on the left who are so desperate for a daddy figure to protect them from big, bad Republican bullies.

Much to the surprise of anyone paying attention to the goings on of Big Tech, a Facebook spokesperson announced the policy change in a statement posted earlier this week.

The extent of incitement and violent speech policy changes will reportedly allow users to post calls for leaders’ deaths in regards to Russian soldiers, and Russians within the context of the invasion of Ukraine. Posts will allegedly not be allowed, however, if a credible threat is made including an intended location and method. Countries reportedly included in the temporary policy change are Armenia, Azerbaijan, Estonia, Georgia, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Romania, Russia, Slovakia and Ukraine.

Meta’s policy changes come after Facebook blocked four Russian media outlets: Zvezda TV channel, RIA Novosti news agency, Lenta.ru and Gazeta.ru on Feb 24. Russia responded by announcing they would limit access to Facebook in response to the tech giant. Other major Western technology companies such as Apple, Google, Microsoft and Oracle have moved to limit or suspend operations in Russia due to its invasion of Ukraine.

Meanwhile, a former U.S. President remains black listed from every social media platform for posting evidence of widescale voter fraud during the 2020 presidential election.

It’s only a matter of time before the United States begins to resemble some bastardized version of Chinese communist technocracy in an effort to police the speech of everyone online. This is a brazen attempt by Big Tech oligarchs to flex their power amid a growing global military conflict.

Scary, scary stuff.
