Humiliate the silence then eliminate

The Facebook Ad Boycott Is About Silencing Conservatives, Not Stopping ‘Hate’. I & I Editorial Board – “The Anti-Defamation League teamed up with the NAACP, and lesser-known groups such as Sleeping Giants, Color of Change, Free Press and Common Sense, to launch the boycott in response, it says, “to Facebook’s long history of allowing racist, violent and verifiably false content to run rampant on its platform.”

“But it doesn’t take much investigative work to realize that this campaign is really about pressuring Facebook to do more than it already is to block conservative speech.

Net neutrality advocacy group Free Press is also involved in the campaign, which is supremely ironic given that its support for net neutrality is premised on “enabling anyone to share and access information of their choosing without interference.” Is it not aware that it’s specifically demanding that Facebook disable and interfere with users’ ability to “share and access information of their choosing”?

The Anti-Defamation League’s decision to attack Facebook is also curious, since Twitter is rife with anti-Semitic language. Two years ago, in fact, the ADL found at least 4.2 million anti-Semitic tweets over a 12-month period.

So this boycott is nothing more than a politically motivated attempt to silence non-leftist speech. Companies backing it should be ashamed of themselves, not Facebook.

A Coup Against Our Institutions. Roger Kimball – “The systematic campaign to undermine an incoming presidential administration through politicized investigations is a true constitutional crisis.” It’s getting harder to ignore and the perpetrators are getting more desperate.

Judicial Watch uncovers emails showing Ben Rhodes and aides joking about Benghazi lies. Thomas Lifson – “This time, its Freedom of Information Act lawsuit has uncovered utterly appalling levity among top Obama foreign policy aides over their lies to the public about the September 11, 2012 attack on the Benghazi Consular Annex that took the lives of Ambassador Chris Stevens, Information Officer Sean Smith, and two CIA operatives, Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods,”

Sen. Tim Scott Steps Out. John Hinderaker – “If you didn’t know better, you might think that the Democrats’ press arm is trying to suppress Tim Scott’s sensible and thoughtful ideas about crime and law enforcement by 1) ignoring him, 2) anonymizing him, or 3) stigmatizing him.” Token black, Uncle Tom, and all the usual denigration is on display.
