Instagram, the huge virtual platform owned by Facebook, announced strict control measures to review users’ private messages in order to “ban” from the network those people who use what they consider to be “hate speech.”
The social networking giant, owned by Mark Zuckerberg, announced on Wednesday, Feb.10, that it is cracking down on users who are “breaking our rules on DMs (private messages).”
The new measures were reported through an official statement on Instagram’s page, which attempts to explain the recent deletion of accounts and content.
Ninety-five percent of the “6.5 million hate speeches” from July to September were censored by the platform without anyone even reporting it, said the Big Tech giant in its statement.
However, the censorship seems to have no limit, because as Instagram openly states, “Today we announce that we will take stricter measures when we realize that there are people who violate our rules in private messages,” the statement continued.
Reportedly, private messages are currently already being monitored and Instagram is suspending users who “do not respect established speech policies,” and in cases where “someone continues to send offending messages, their account will be deactivated.”
The fact that Instagram confirms that the platform is actively monitoring private messages in its messaging system, and that it will now ban users for what it defines as “hate speech,” further heightens privacy and censorship concerns. Especially considering that the broad concept of “hate speech,” is nothing more than a theoretical construct that the powerful representatives of Silicon Valley created from its leftist and globalist ideology and beliefs.
In other words, it is not actual “hate” that they are fighting, but rather it first recategorizes as “hate” any speech that opposes its own, and then censors using a category that sounds good to everyone’s ears.
Without going any further, on Thursday, Twitter, Facebook’s great ally, shut down the accounts of conservative journalist James O’Keefe and his investigative organization Project Veritas. The censorship followed Project Veritas’s report about Facebook Vice President Guy Rosen saying the Big Tech platform intentionally “freezes” through algorithms comments where “hate speech may be” present, The Federalist reported.
Big Tech’s power of censorship seems to know no bounds in its obsession to generate a single, homogeneous discourse in all those aspects of social life that seem pertinent to them.
Such is the case of the CCP Virus and the controversial vaccination campaigns. In an announcement on Feb. 8, Facebook stated that it is “expanding our efforts to remove false claims on Facebook and Instagram about COVID-19, COVID-19 vaccines, and vaccines in general during the pandemic.”
The strongest point of censorship, came in January when they cut off communication channels to President Donald Trump himself, removing his Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube accounts, using vague arguments of alleged “incitement to hatred in his speeches.”
