So tired of the same lies constantly being repeated.
The "insurrection" was instigated by crisis actors and nothing more than the US version of Reichstag to enable putting down political opposition.

Haugen is bought and paid for by the democrats to publicly shame facebook into goose-stepping along with the rest of their shameful charade.
I take it that since Trump was booted from Facebook, you're seeking asylum and an audience for your bizarre conspiracy theories here at Techspot?

Like I said in a previous post when there was the rumor of the name change, they want to control, subjugate and enslave humanity with tech.

And the worst part is that FB (now Meta) is not the only one. All the big tech corporations (and not only) want this and are striving in that direction... for every aspect of life.

Talk about repeating lies. But let me make this easy for you.
Over 600 people have been arrested, jailed, given court dates etc. and at least a few hundred more will follow. Of all those arrested or just questioned, not one had history with anything other than trump and the radical right-wing. Not one claimed or proved to be an anti trump poser, Antifa or BLM "member."

And by the way, the attempt to overthrow Democracy on 106 was indeed designed to put down opposition. To liberate their twisted view of America from the "burden" of a free and equal society and a free and open election.

So when Facebook screwed up and actually did something right for a change, at least it was to silence the avalanche of lies and rhetoric from the far right.

I hope this doesn't become one of those things that Facebook now sues anyone using the word Meta.

I read an article that was like "Google tried something similar with Alphabet - it didn't catch on" which is exactly what this is going to be we know it as Facebook and that's what it is

How about a Federal Law that would allow individuals to bring House & Senate members up on the charge of Complicity for every one of these offenses they fail to act upon? Hmmmmm .... that does mean we might have both chambers empty but it would help encourage more action on elected members that choose to run .....

:eek: A little on the nose wouldn't you say? ;)
Well, it would be one giant leap......Whoa, wait a minute. I get so many "compliments" on my current screen name, and I'd have to adjust my sunny disposition, to something resembling a, "bad attitude".

Maybe I could pretend to be a Trump supporter for a week or so, to try it out.

Yup. NEVER underestimate the power of stupid people in large groups.
I used to propose there's a mathematical formula for that. IIRC, you take the individual with the lowest IQ in the group, and then extract the square root, and that should get you somewhere near the IQ, displayed by "mob intellect".

"Mob intellect", whoops, silly me, I just posted an oxymoron. (Hint, it's the civilian version of, "military intelligence").

Sorry man. That takes a lifetime of hands over the ear's dedication.
You can't just take a pill to lower your IQ 75 points. :D

I think I get it! Kinda like "Republican think tank".

Maybe not, but, a good hefty dose of scopolamine and a couple of Nazi sympathizing psychologists will get you pretty close. Of course it would likely take a few days of sleep deprivation as well to pull it off.

"Facebook misled investors and the public about its role perpetuating misinformation and violent extremism relating to the 2020 election and January 6th insurrection."

Its role was there for anyone and everyone to see. Did Facebook not delete enough posts proving undeniable election fraud for Haugen's liking?
Since when did fakebook posts achieve the Gold Standard for bastions of truth - or was that only the deleted ones, or only the ones that were deleted that originated in Russia?

Were those the ones chanting Death to Mike Pence? Or was that chant "For freedumb"?

Hmmm. Must be the latest Q theory. :rolleyes:
A pile of crap by any other name... is still a pile of crap.
I was going to say would still smell like a pile of crap, but you beat me to it. :laughing:

I would have gone with something more, "Shakespearean". Say, "a turd, is a turd, is a turd, that which we call a turd by any other name, would still smell as vile"


OK, good music and a backstory comin' atcha...Trumps campaign was issued a cease and desist letter to prevent him from using this song in his campaign rallies:


(Of course those mutts never did figure out what the song was about. I think they just stole the chorus).
