Washington’s censorship regime goes global

 

 Facebook removed a post on Sri Lanka by the World Socialist Web Site’s official Tamil-language Facebook page. The alleged reason was violation of unspecified restrictions in Facebook’s “community standards,” which is no explanation at all….

The move is the latest in the crackdown on left-wing, anti-war and socialist organizations by US-based technology monopolies including Google, Facebook and Twitter. As these companies integrate themselves ever more closely into the American state apparatus, they are increasingly weaponized to promote US imperialist aims all over the world. At the center of this drive is the suppression of socialist political viewpoints.

“Truthdig” (sic) contributor (and now Counterpunch), with longstanding ties to foundation-funded professional propaganda complex, demonizes dissenters, claims everything critical of White Helmets and Al Qaeda false flags is “fake.”

The Left, Syria and Fake News

Kolhatkar claims she doesn’t want US bombing of Syria, but she ignores seven years of covert arms smuggling to radical Islamists: the reason there is a war there at all. The professional “left” pretends the US hasn’t created the war with its willing partners. This is the type of propaganda Chomsky, et al. have banged out for years. They ignore the weapons, ignore the state-sponsored (CIA) smuggling, and they attack domestic dissenters instead.

For Sonali Kolhatkar’s education, here is everything posted here on the “White Helmets,” a fraudulent organization created to manufacture propaganda for people like Sonali to cry crocodile tears over and sell to western audiences.

The big photo cache of White Helmet members in their former roles as Al Qaeda fighters is the central post not to be missed:

But dissenters are the fakes, Sonali? Not the Al Qaeda/White Helmets creating fake rescues? Not the Al Qaeda connected terrorists caught repeatedly with chemical weapons?

Maybe Sonali Kolhatkar is the real fake in this story…

PS.

In one of Kolhatkar’s own sources, cited in her Counterpunch piece:

Associated Press: Chemical weapons team in Syria kept from alleged attack site

Nuseir, 25, said he ran from the shelter to a nearby clinic and fainted. After he was revived, he returned to the shelter and found his wife and daughters dead, with foam coming from their mouths.

He and two other residents accused the rebel Army of Islam of carrying out the attack. As they spoke, government troops were not far away but out of earshot. Nuseir said a gas cylinder was found leaking the poison gas, adding that he didn’t think it was dropped from the air because it still looked intact.

Oooooops. How does the Army of Islam releasing chlorine in any way implicate Assad or the Russians???

Kolhatkar ignores half a decade’s revelations about the Islamists using chemical weapons, including UN inspector Carla del Ponte:

 

And yet Kolhatkar would arrogantly try to discredit us for knowing far more than she does about the situation. 

He who pays the piper calls the tune.

Article is from Truthdig, which I’ve had some problems with over their 9/11 denialism. The 9/11 attacks led to this whole fiasco, but here you go…

Thought Police for the 21st Century

In late April and early May the World Socialist Web Site, which identifies itself as a Trotskyite group that focuses on the crimes of capitalism, the plight of the working class and imperialism, began to see a steep decline in readership. The decline persisted into June. Search traffic to the World Socialist Web Site has been reduced by 75 percent overall. And the site is not alone. AlterNet’s search traffic is down 71 percent, Consortium News is down 72 percent, Global Research and Truthdig have seen declines. And the situation appears to be growing worse.

The reductions coincided with the introduction of algorithms imposed by Google to fight “fake news.” Google said the algorithms are designed to elevate “more authoritative content” and marginalize “blatantly misleading, low quality, offensive or downright false information.” It soon became apparent, however, that in the name of combating “fake news,” Google, Facebook, YouTube and Twitter are censoring left-wing, progressive and anti-war sites. The 150 most popular search terms that brought readers to the World Socialist Web Site, including “socialism,” “Russian Revolution” and “inequality,” today elicit little or no traffic.

Remember: The foundation-funded “left” also censors content, such as legitimate facts about the 9/11 attacks and the Treason at the heart of it. It’s kind of difficult to be sympathetic to Truthdig’s readership problems when they have been censoring 9/11 activists such as myself since the beginning. Further, they are too cowardly to debate their ignorant positions. That’s why this blog exists, btw.
