The Democrats desperately want conservatives kicked off Facebook.
And they just unleashed a brand new scheme to make that happen.
Now, Facebook is under more pressure than ever to eliminate conservatives from their platform.
The corporate media establishment swooned when Facebook “whistleblower” Frances Haugen came out and said that Facebook wasn’t censoring people enough.
She did glowing interviews with numerous media outlets and was given a hero’s welcome by liberals.
But Daily Caller came out with a new report showing that Haugen wasn’t really the “whistleblower” she claimed to be – she was a Democratic operative.
“Facebook whistleblower Frances Haugen, who pushed for more censorship of social media misinformation in Senate testimony Tuesday, is linked to several Democrat operatives,” the report read.
“Frances Haugen is being advised on public relations and strategic communications by Bill Burton, a former Obama administration official and founder of Democrat-linked consulting firm Bryson Gillette and political action committee Priorities USA Action.”
Additionally, Haugen has a long history of ties to powerful Democratic politicians.
“Filings with the Federal Election Commission show that Haugen is a regular donor to Democrats, contributing to several campaigns including those of Bernie Sanders and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.”
Given all of this information, it’s clear that Haugen is not who she claims she is.
Haugen wants people to believe she is a brave whistleblower.
But as independent journalist Glenn Greenwald points out, true whistleblowers are not given the lavish and glowing treatment that she was.
Greenwald tweeted, “Real whistleblowers end up prosecuted, imprisoned, sued, ruined and vilified by elite D.C. sectors and their corporate media outlets. They don’t have the red carpet rolled out for them with a Netflix-ready film script crafted by a top Obama operative, complete with TV star turns.”
History shows that Greenwald is right.
Edward Snowden, whose revelations about the NSA were originally reported by Greenwald, was given charges under the Espionage Act, forced into exile, and trapped in Russia by his own government when they cancelled his passport.
All of that was done to him as revenge because he told the truth about what the NSA was doing to its own citizens.
Julian Assange is currently sitting in a British jail in abusive conditions without a trial, under U.S. Espionage Act charges, because he used his First Amendment rights as a journalist to expose the lies of the military-industrial complex.
Daniel Hale was given 45 months in prison for exposing the illegal drone war that Obama was engaging in, a drone war that recently led to the murder of an aid worker and his children in Afghanistan.
All of these men were real whistleblowers – people who told the truth about their own government and were brutally punished for doing so.
Frances Haugen will never face Espionage Act charges and will never spend a day in prison.
Nor should she, as she was just engaging in free speech under the First Amendment.
However, nobody should be treating her as a whistleblower. She is not – she is a political operative.
And the real whistleblowers, like Snowden, Assange, and Hale, should have their charges lifted immediately. They are the ones who told the truth.
