Jailed!

FB Jailed for "hate speech"
Yep! Facebook Has Jailed Me Again

Yes, it’s true; a few days ago I was jailed by Facebook again – another 30 days during which I cannot post, share, comment, or even “like” someone’s post. Above is the “Hate Speech” I wrote in reply to someone’s post calling for Australia to ban calls from India due to all the scammers constantly calling people there.

The funny part iss that the majority of those Indian scammers are breaking Indian laws when they call other countries. Most, due to maximization of profits, use VOIP to do it and using for VOIP for international calling is actually illegal in India…they want the rupies from it.

Facebook Comment

Now, I being reasonably normal and sensible, rather than rant and rave, I simply requested a review by FB’s monitors / admins. I figured that I just got caught by some algorithm.

Jalied - FB Say's Whites Violate Community StandardsYep Again! Facebook’s Employees Agree

But no! If, and it’s a nested series of if’s, Facebook actually does have people review alleged “Community Standards” violations and if those reviewers actually review the complaint instead of just pushing a button to agree with the algorithm, then those reviewers also believe that my comment constituted “Hate Speech” or that they could use the initial, computer-driven jailing as an excuse to silence me for 30 days.

OK, OK! Maybe it was just a particularly rabid Grammar Nazi. I did, after all, misspell “Rupees.”

Think about that. Read the comment I was jailed for again and think about what this means for people when operatives of the largest communication platform in the world can and do silence people at their whim and are utterly unaccountable for doing so. There is even an escalation process. Nor is their the capability for people to contact Facebook via any means other than their “support” portal.

The Fourth Ape

The Fourth Ape
At Last, The Fourth Ape

Yes, we’ve found the fourth ape or monkey and he’s the culmination and concatenation of the first three. Somehow I don’t think this is what the futurists meant when they waxed poetic about Singularity.

Hysterical Paralysis

Liberal BSOD resulting in hysterical paralysis
Liberal Hysterical Paralysis

ROFLMAO – Yep! If a gorilla shot an alligator with an AR-15 to save a Muslim child while their transgender parent was in the bathroom it would “break the internet.” Not, mind you, because of the amount and intensity of the traffic, which is what is normally meant by that meme but due to utter, shocked, and panicked silence that would ensue as the Liberal and Progressive SJWs went into hysterical paralysis due to their not knowing who or what to side with.

The intersectional conflict that this would generate within the so-called minds of these ever-puling domestic enemies of America would almost instantly reach critical mass as they strove and failed to reach a consensus fantasy of the “proper” hierarchy of “oppression,” privilege, and protection.
