Facebook Execs and GOP Leaders Meet to Discuss 'Provably False' and 'Ridiculous' Myth of Anti-Rightwing Bias

Julia Conley, staff writer

Media critics called the premise of a meeting between Facebook and the Republican Party into question on Friday, as executives from the tech giant arrived in Washington, D.C. to discuss alleged censorship of conservative voices with House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) and other party officials.

This is straight from the Orwellian right-wing handbook.

“You are not allowing us to control the dialogue and put an end to the input from the left. This is discrimination, just as good, conservative Christians have been censored and under attack by not allowing us to eliminate gays and inferior races from our country, to the honor and glory of our Lord and Savior, Jesus (Sky Fairy) Christ.”

You’d think that a smart guy like Mark Zuckerberg might have that figured out…

Just read this in a Salon piece by Heather Digby Parton, via Truthout:

"One of the longstanding tropes of the modern conservative movement is that the mainstream media is liberal to its core and incurably biased against them, a charge they hurl relentlessly at the press in all its permutations. This has been going on since at least the 1960s and continues to this day. It is not a sincerely held belief, at least not on the part of the professional political operatives who push this disingenuous conceit. It’s a cynical tactic to pressure the media into taking a jaundiced view of their political enemies in order to avoid further abuse. It generally works: Mainstream journalists almost always end up giving the conservatives the benefit of the doubt. It’s called “working the refs,” and it’s been highly effective."

Excellent –

but this is the squeaky wheel which they keep going –
and the very basis of vile propaganda … REPETITION.

And, sadly, over decades there has been no reply – no pushing back from
the Democratic Party which has substantially allowed this to happen as
partners in the right wing agenda.

In order to have stopped this lie Dem Party would have had to take a stand
against hate speech, against the positions of the GOP based in their right to
control and destroy what they don’t like – People of color, Women, Homosexual,
Jews, Native People … Asians who are 50% of the population of the world, I believe … ???

And, DESTROY they will – and DESTROY they do.
