Facebook Continues Its Leftist Ways

Claiming to have changed, the social media giant still shows anti-conservative bias.

Over the last few months Facebook has been in the news often, and for reasons other than its latest stock value. This past May, Fox News reported on 10 instances where conservatives were singled out for censorship, and this after Facebook’s own internal investigation in which it claimed to have found no evidence of overt anti-conservative bias. However, after several more revelations of censoring conservative content, Facebook admitted that there had been some censoring of conservative content — but only by a few workers. The problem is, Facebook’s anti-conservative bias hasn’t changed.

A recent example is that of middle school teacher Stephan Neidenbach, who founded a Facebook page entitled “We Love GMOs and Vaccines.” To his surprise he later found the page had been removed by Facebook censors, because it offended some anti-GMO and anti-vaccine activists. National Review recounts, “Despite the fact that no polices were violated, [Facebook] acquiesced to [the activists’] demands and deactivated the page. … Neidenbach was subsequently banned from the platform for 30 days.”

This is yet another example of Facebook’s bias against conservative pages, whether they be pro-Second Amendment, conservative news or opposed to a variety of liberal issues. Facebook clearly seeks to tilt the public’s views on cultural and political issues away from a conservative perspective and toward leftist and socialist ones. No matter how much it may deny its bias, Facebook is a powerful platform that aims to promote and normalize a leftist worldview.
