According to an investigation by Alan MacLeod at MintPress News, Facebook employs a staff of 40,000 professional censors who carry out the tech giant’s “content moderation” policies. A large number of these professional censors previously worked at the CIA, like Aaron Berman, who worked there for 15 years prior to his current post as Senior Product Policy Manager for Misinformation at Meta, the company that owns Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp.
“Berman’s case is far from unique, however. Studying Meta’s reports, as well as employment websites and databases, MintPress has found that Facebook has recruited dozens of individuals from the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), as well as many more from other agencies like the FBI and Department of Defense (DoD). These hires are primarily in highly politically sensitive sectors such as trust, security and content moderation, to the point where some might feel it becomes difficult to see where the US national security state ends and Facebook begins.
“In previous investigations, this author has detailed how TikTok is flooded with NATO officials, how former FBI agents abound at Twitter, and how Reddit is led by a former war planner for the NATO think tank, the Atlantic Council. But the sheer scale of infiltration of Facebook blows these away. Facebook, in short, is utterly swarming with spooks.”
What’s publicly known about these major social media companies is that, besides having been developed and financed by DARPA and/or the CIA, and besides availing themselves of free taxpayer-subsidized cyber infrastructure, we find that they also employ intelligence agents to police speech and to enforce the Globohomo World Order.
But what’s not as well-known is that these social media sites exist almost solely to conduct psychological operations and that they constitute the primary theater of operations for 5th generation warfare via Interactive Internet Activities.
In other words, the same entities that used our tax dollars to bring us the Fake Pandemic and the Death Shot also used our tax dollar-funded military-grade psychological warfare weapons, like Shadownet to control the public narrative through social media and the Fake News to propagate the COVID hoax, to rig elections, to organize the BLM riots, etc., etc., as detailed in the groundbreaking film, ‘ShadowGate’.
Yes, the same FBI lawyer who was involved in orchestrating the Crossfire Hurricane endless coup that ran throughout Trump’s presidency hopped over to Twitter and became the social media platform’s Number Two lawyer, to preside over the censorship of Hunter Biden’s Laptop from Hell, the FBI-orchestrated January 6th false flag and the de-platforming of the sitting President and Commander-in-Chief of the US Armed Forces.
The scale of this manipulation has begun to be revealed amid Elon Musk’s claims that Twitter failed to prove that fake bot accounts comprise less than 5% of all users. He’s even gone as far as to publicly speculate that as many as 80% of Twitter users are bots!
In the weeks and months following Elon Musk’s offer to buy Twitter last April, vowing to remake it into a Free Speech platform, the censorship on Twitter eased up and some high profile users who’d previously been de-platformed even had their accounts restored.
But now that Musk has backed away from the deal, it appears that the bad old days of censorship and de-platforming are back, if my own backup account is any indication. The account I’d had since January 2009 was de-platformed on Tuesday without any explanation. I had been using that account as a backup, after my FKTV account was de-platformed on January 8th, 2021, along with those of thousands of others.
Censorship is a growth industry, as we’ve seen with the proliferation of “fact-checking” organizations and with Pentagon contractors like NewsGuard. So while the Department of Homeland Security may have decided to scrap their Disinformation Governance Board, such work will likely be done through private contractors going forward.
That way, what the public sees through FOIA requests, investigations, congressional hearings or otherwise is as clean as a whistle. All the dirty work is kept private with contractors in clandestine networks. These contractors have used their connections, power and influence to create an unprecedented international criminal enterprise, where blackmail is traded and people’s personal data is gold.
