If you’ve ever wondered if the censorship of conservatives and libertarians will ever end, here’s more evidence that it could be just the beginning. Investigative journalists uncovered the ugly truth that Facebook employees, at senior levels, dozens of former Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton staffers.
Mark Zuckerberg notably failed to mention the recent revelations about the Obama 2012 campaign’s exploitation of the platform’s weak pre-2014 data protections to harvest masses of data from non-consenting users. But when looking deeper at the number of former Obama staffers and former Hillary staffers in senior positions at the social media giant, it becomes a lot easier to see the “why” behind the obvious and glaring question.
It isn’t a secret that Facebook has been censoring anyone with a non-left political ideology. Even Diamond and Silk have had a run-in with censorship.
And adding to the free speech violations, the establishment media narrative on the Facebook data scandal hit a decent sized snag last month. The talking heads had hoped that the story would be restricted to Cambridge Analytica, a data analytics firm that they linked to the Cruz and Trump campaigns, and their alleged misuse of user data. But a bigger story soon emerged, linked to a longtime media favorite: Barack Obama. But this story was widely dismissed by the propaganda puppets.
By the admission of Barack Obama’s former media analytics director, Carol Davidsen, the former president hoovered up far more data without users’ consent in 2012, when Facebook’s data policies were (as Facebook now concedes) far more vulnerable to exploitation than they were in 2016.
Mark Zuckerberg admits that, prior to its strengthening of user protections in 2014, Facebook made a critical error in allowing third-party apps to harvest data not just from users who gave them consent, but from their non-consenting friends. What he didn’t mention was the digital campaigning tools developed by Obama for America were among the apps that took advantage of this loophole. –Breitbart
They came to office in the days following election recruiting & were very candid that they allowed us to do things they wouldn’t have allowed someone else to do because they were on our side.

Davidsen also clearly admitted on Twitter that representatives from Facebook visited Obama’s campaign team. Facebook told them they were allowed to get away with it because “they were on their side.”
In total, Breitbart was able to find 45 employees who had previously worked or volunteered with the Hillary campaigns, the Obama campaigns, or the Obama White House and are now employed by Facebook, Facebook-owned companies, or the Chan-Zuckerberg Initiative. This does not include Facebook employees who do not have Linkedin accounts or neglected to mention past experience on their profiles.
By comparison, Breitbart’s search for former Romney staffers or campaign volunteers who currently work at Facebook returned just seven profiles. A search for McCain staffers returned one profile, who also appeared on the Romney list. A search for staffers from the George W. Bush administration or presidential campaigns returned three profiles while a search for former Trump staffers returned zero profiles.
Facebook has also denied Carol Davidsen’s claim that the company gave the Obama campaign any special favors in 2012. A Facebook spokeswoman said, “both the Obama and Romney campaigns had access to the same tools, and no campaign received any special treatment from Facebook.”
Facebook, as well as the “Good book”, are for the weak minded. Strong minds don’t need either.
Facebook started out as Life Log, a Pentagon project. Hmmm.
Also interestingly …
The Advanced Research Projects Agency Network (ARPANET) was an early packet switching network and the first network to implement the protocol suite TCP/IP. Both technologies became the technical foundation of the Internet. The ARPANET was initially funded by the Advanced Research Projects Agency (ARPA) of the United States Department of Defense.
In the pic so close Obama looks like he is giving Zuck the business on stage. Buzz off anyway the wind blows Obammy.
aljamo – I thought the SAME thing. Sure did look like like Obongo was saying “hey folks, nothing to see here but a little man love”. And the Zucks’ look of “eeeeee, hold on dude, a bit too quick there for me man”. Perfect pic for a captioning contest.
Heartless, facebook and all other social media ought to be just shut down. I’m not surprised about Obama/Hillary supporters at facebook. It’s a safe bet they’re at twitter and all other social media companies too.
Everybody has to remember that site owners have a right to do anything they want with their site and the information they can learn from, or about you.
For example there are at least two guys who regularly comment on this site who are in Hawaii and one guy in Puerto Rico. We are preppers and fairly self sufficient at this point. He could sell the info/comments he has to someone, They could mine it, but what good would it do? He might attract a solar power advertiser. Might not.
Relik: I think when it comes to the huge tech outfits, that is just a whole different ball of wax – their scale and scope is just ridiculous. That ZuckerGew deserves to HANG for crimes against humanity.
Brave: I agree. ALL of them should be BURNED TO THE GROUND period and those clowns working there, HANG ALL of them period!!!!
Also know that Susan Rice is now on the board of Netflix. Both NEtflix and Facebook you can individually do something about – quit using them!
Facebook is childish garbage seriously for little 13 year olds. So glad I DELETED that nonsense many years ago!! Vile Gov’t is probably behind all of it, directly or indirectly.
Well with Congress playing “ pat the turd on the head and call it a good boy “ games with Zuckerberg it’s readill apparent that Congess wants us silenced.
So does that mean I can legally put “ silencers “ on all my “Conservatively minded “ home defense devices ?
