(NaturalNews) If thereâ€™s one thing the political Left hates more than anything else itâ€™s an honest, openÂ debateÂ over ideals. Authoritarian to the core, Leftists shun debate and discussion because deep down, they know they cannot defend their positionsâ€”more and bigger centralized government, top-down government-imposed â€œsolutions,â€ big expensive bureaucracy, limited freedom and individualism.
So what does the Left seek to do instead? It seeks toÂ shut down debate, shout down opponents, wall off competing ideas andÂ censorÂ anyone who doesnâ€™t toe the liberal line.
Thatâ€™s what this business of rooting out so-called â€œfake newsâ€ by Facebook, Google, and other social media giants isÂ reallyÂ all about. After GOP presidential nominee Donald J. Trump mopped the floor with the Leftâ€™s anointed candidate,Â four-time loser Hillary Clinton, the insane Left began blaming â€œfake newsâ€ from alternative media sources (like ours) who dared to publishÂ the truthÂ about what Clinton stood for and howÂ she, not Trump, was the one â€œunfitâ€ for the Oval Office.
Now we are beginning to see just who is behind the effort to shut out our brand of honest reporting. AsÂ noted by the Free Thought Project, billionaire globalist George Sorosâ€”who has regularly funded anti-American political movements and causesâ€”has his grimy fingerprints all over this effort.
Sleazy Soros and other Left-wing notables are behind all of this
Soros is among a number of Left-wing figures funding Facebookâ€™s latest attempt to censorÂ competing political ideologyÂ and reporting of â€˜inconvenientâ€™ facts. In recent days Facebook CEO Mark ZuckerbergÂ announced a planÂ to combat â€˜fake news,â€™ which was not something he was focused on until the mainstream Left began to put pressure on him following Clintonâ€™s loss, the Free Thought Project noted. His decision was rightfully met with suspicion, consternation and angst from members of the alternative media who wereÂ notpublishing â€œfakeâ€ news about Clinton and Democrats during the recent election cycle, but were doing the job of the old â€œmainstreamâ€ media in shining the light of scrutiny onÂ allcandidates.
What is especially onerous about the Facebook strategy is that the social media giant is partnering with â€œnewsâ€ and â€œfact-checking organizationsâ€ who themselves have a history of Left-wing bias. The company said it would utilize fact-checkers form the â€˜trustedâ€™Â Poynter Institute, a claim that should have raised red flags and alarm bells because the institute is a recipient ofÂ fundingÂ from Sorosâ€™ Open Society Foundationâ€”as well as from Google, the Craig Newmark Foundation, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the Omidyar Network and other noted Leftist groups.
It should further be noted that Pierre Omidyar, founder of Ebay, hasÂ given more than $30 millionÂ to the Clintons and their so-called â€˜charities,â€™ while the Gatesâ€™Â have also contributedsome $25 million to the Clinton Foundation, the Free Thought Project reported.
Also, Sorosâ€”who spent some $27 million in a losing effort to defeat President George W. Bush in 2004â€”alsoÂ ponied upÂ more than $25 million to help Hillary Clinton and other Democrats this past election cycle.
In sum, this entire â€˜rooting out the fake newsâ€™ effort is nothing but an incestuous Left-wing effort to censor competing political ideas and otherÂ factual reportingÂ that hurts the â€œprogressiveâ€ cause, because the entities charged with anointing news as â€œrealâ€ or â€œfakeâ€ are extremely biased.
As the Ron Paul InstituteÂ says:
Never fear. A group of selfless and unbiased philanthropists have stepped forward to offer millions of dollars to assist these â€œfact-checkersâ€ in their efforts to ferret out and disappear anything they determine to be â€œfake news.â€ It seems rather curious, however, that these donors are all in fact in one way or other completely beholden to Hillary Clinton and the left-interventionists of the Democratic Party.
With the known Leftist players both funding and participating in this Facebook â€˜effortâ€™ to quell â€˜fake news,â€™ donâ€™t expect anything short of outright censorship of the alternative media, the only news organizations who do real, factual, and honest reporting these days.
