Facebook Censors Alternate Views of News Events
IT SEEMS THAT FACEBOOK is now in the business of shutting down the accounts of journalists who question the mainstream media’s reporting of the news. Saturday night I was alerted by Facebook that I would have to wait three days until I was able to log onto my personal Facebook account again. I was informed the reason for this punishment was the result of meme I had shared. Facebook told me it “…violates Facebook’s Statement of Rights and Responsibilities”. I was further warned that “If you continue to abuse Facebook’s features, your account could be permanently disabled.” Above is the image I had shared on my Facebook “Fan page” entitled “We Know The Secrets of the Federal Reserve” (www.Facebook.com/WKTSOTFR) which posts memes as well as stories from our alternative media website www.SecretsOfTheFed.com.
Keep in mind this was posted on Friday, the day of the shooting, when every minute the “official story” of what occurred at Sandy Hook Elementary School was changing. There were mainstream media reports that the shooter was Ryan Lanza, the weapons used were “assault rifles”, the shooter had killed his father, a second gunman was led out of the woods and questioned (since scrubbed from the net), and a myriad of other accusations that have since been proven to be false. At the time when this graphic was posted this meme contained 93% of what constituted the “official story”.
The image states that “Adam Lanza, a clumsy 20 year old autistic kid dressed in camo and full body armor, who never shot a gun before, drives to another state, gets let into a locked school looking like Rambo, kills 26 people with dead on accuracy at a school his mother, (a retired teacher who no one ever heard of before), used to work in years before, after allegedly killing her with the gun that belonged to her in the first place, then takes his own life… Thats the news, and people blindly believe it.”
I have hyperlinked the claims in the meme to news articles which remained on the web, even after the media has attempted to scrub conflicting/false reports in the last few days. Three days after the shooting I was still able to find articles which confirm that the media was representing all the points made in the meme except one. Thirteen out of the 14 claims made were able to be verified as media reports of the shooting.
I acknowledge that as time has passed the story has changed and thus this rendition of the events of Friday’s shooting no longer concur with the meme. However, that is not the point. The aim of the image was to point out how quickly people accept as fact that which the consolidated corporate media tells them. Regardless of the story that is represented at the end of the day, the fact remains that the rendition of events which I referred to was, at the time I posted, what the media were reporting and the masses accepted it as Gospel.
