Facebook wants you to report extremists in your friends and family [Video]

Big Tech’s attempt to strangle free speech continues with great fervor. Oops. I must be an extremist for saying that.

The statements, views and opinions expressed in this column are solely those of the author and do not necessarily represent those of this site. This site does not give financial, investment or medical advice.

What is an extremist? These days, this term is becoming rather subjective. For the Democrat in 2021, extremists include:

  • Trump supporters
  • Dedicated and serious Christian believers
  • Proponents of traditional family structures and values
  • Conservatives

For the Conservative / Republican in the same period, some of us might consider these people and groups extremists:

  • Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez
  • Ilhan Omar
  • The Democrat Party in general
  • Big Tech
  • Globalists
  • George Soros

Some really strange classifications, sadly, seem common to both sides:

  • People who believe drug use is wrong, especially marijuana
  • Those people who truly place obedience to God as first

For the critical thinker, this points to something that is quite clear (but is now arbitrarily considered extreme thinking): the fact that our success as a nation stemmed from our reliance on Christian principles as the “master guide” to living. This idea has been relegated to “extremism” more and more lately, with Big Tech platforms like Facebook and Twitter becoming sewers, and using their platforms to skewer Christian groups even from within the Christian groups. When I, as an Orthodox Christian, go to Orthodox groups on Facebook, for example, most of what is posted there is so vile it would lead any visiting reader to conclude that Orthodox Christians are arrogant, stuck up snobs who all hate each other.

That is bad, and it is not possible to know how much of that is spontaneous Christian bashing from real people, or how much of it is strategic use of bots or something else. The rise of alternate platforms like Gab, which is run by a fearless Christian believer, show a completely different spirit.

However, Facebook is by far the biggest of the social media networks, and even though many people are leaving it for Gab and Parler and the like, Facebook still is so large that to completely withdraw from the platform is almost impossible. Often, the only way to contact other friends is through this platform, so most of us still get exposed to it.

To that end, taking advantage of this great power, Facebook is now reaching for the inside of your skull and those of your friends, and the tech giant is asking you to “get support for” encounters with extremism and extremists. Such offers might look like this:

In other words, extremism is being treated as a cult, with great suspicion, and Facebook is offering “resources” to “help” its users find their way to “normalcy” in their thinking and world view.

But what is “normal?” Apparently, Facebook has taken a lofty mantle upon itself to act like it knows what normal is, and the developers of this effort are determined to help you become normal… no matter what you might think.

Roman Balmakov of the Epoch Times gives an amazing bit of analysis on this development.

This is where it gets very interesting. For me, as a person who treats all news with skepticism, such efforts smack of an effort to curtail free thought and free speech. I do not personally need anybody’s help to deal with extremists, and if one shows up and posts things at me and I do not like it, I simply ignore it or block the sender. I am in no need of guidance to “discover” that I might be exposed to or have my mind changed by “extremism.”

There are many people who share this ability to think critically, thank God, and they are responding to Facebook’s efforts with mockery:

And also, with reference to the Section 230 reform that apparently died on the vine (or was killed!) after Imposter Biden was installed in the White House as the empty suit for liberals. (Oh, is that extremist for me to say this? Oh, well, it is the truth…)

One thing is for sure: This IS the big power play by the globalist secularists. This is their hour, but the time where they can succeed is limited. The more they do this, the more people become wise to them.

Ha Ha…… I’ll just bet that if you report a black extremist, it’ll be you that ends up on their blacklist.

So true, the attack on Christianity is simply to try to break our higher allegiance to God. We believe that all men are equal in the eyes of the lord and all men have rights given by God, They want us to deny God and believe that the NWO is the highest authority and that an individual has no rights. They wish to introduce despotism and tyranny. These people are not Christians, they lie, they cheat, they promote everything that destroys healthy self esteem; they must hate people or have absolute disdain. They are perverted with their spirit cooking, sexualization… Read more »

I watched a video where I believe it was CIA agents were addressed and told that with the “vaccine” “religiosity” could be eliminated with Vaccines….probably by obliterating the so-called “God Particle” This is the primary reason I believe we must oppose not only the covid injections but most of the 78 vaccines which begin on day one or a person’s birth and continue until age 18. Look at the stats on autism and other illnesses. It is dangerous to be born in Amerika.

‘Farce-book’ can go fuck itself, along with that reptile that pretends to ‘own’ it.

I’m ‘Highly Likely‘ and with ‘Near Certaintysure…Pol Pot, Stalin and the old Stasi Boss Mielke are cheering and applauding them, for their bold totalitarian approach, from HELL. They should change their Name more appropriate in to FASCISTBOOK.

I gave Farcebook the boot six months ago, yes, I’ve lost many contacts and people I once thought were, or might, become friends. However, despite exchanging email addresses, it’s become clear that they aren’t interested in keeping up contact, so I guess they were only “fair-weather” friends. That’s life, but I’m a darn sight happier without Mark Zuckerberg breathing down my neck. I suggest you try it Seraphim. 🌹

I briefly opened a Facebook account just after Maidan just to post comments and articles from a dissenting point of view, there and on other forums that accepted an fb account . Besides getting not a few thumbs up, was constantly being accused of being a Russian bot, having a phony name, etc. etc., since I had no previous history on Facebook. That experience told me that Facebook is populated by far too many spoon-fed idiots and really, why bother. Goebbels was right. It doesn’t take much to brainwash a majority of the population, no matter how outlandish or evidence… Read more »

Free-thinkers will always be in the minority in any society. That our universities that took such pains in describing themselves as bastions of free-thought, questioning behavior and dissent where warranted have now become bastions of ideological authoritarianism tells me that western society is in a very likely irretrievable downward spiral and we’re just in its formative whirlwinds. Frankly, after having lost all faith in enlightenment in any form, I’m looking for a gracious exit as best I can.

I’m determined to fight for my survival despite them. They have no right to push me (or anyone else for that matter) to an earlier grave than Mother Nature intends. Who DO they think they are?

Straight out of communist China and the world that George Orwell warned about.

What does ‘Communist’ China have to do with farce-book? You do know farce-book is banned in China?

Well, they are a bit more mindful of the dissent than what we thought we once were less mindful of. Silly me for once believing that silly propaganda about ourselves.

What a deplorable society this is becoming. During Hitler’s Nazi Germany, people were also encourage to ‘rat’ on others, including family members.

Like under the GDR Regime and their Stasi, under Stalin, under the Greek Military Dictatorship, or in Chile and under the McCarthy Reign of Terror in the USA.

Yeah, point taken but authoritarian nerds? That’s a new one. Then again, it’s said you can scratch a nerd and find a vengeful, spiteful person lurking to get back at the society that branded him a nerd to begin with. Maybe this is it at work.

Subliminal payback for the tormenting Bifs of their formative years. Lest we not forget Biff in all likelihood grew up to become a Republican and even more likely, wore a MAGA hat.
