Whistleblower Ryan Hartwig, a Facebook content moderator who works for third-party contractor Cognizant, told Project Veritas’ James O’Keefe in an interview that he and his colleagues get paid to do exactly that: remove political posts that favor conservative causes.
The epitome of election interference, Facebook has a global team of censors, both in-house and contracted out, who are paid to scour the social media platform and scrap posts and pages that support things like the border wall, welfare reform, and President Donald Trump himself.
“I was seeing them interfering on a global level in elections,” says Hartwig, noting that this is not just an American phenomenon.
“I saw a blatant exception that just targeted conservatives or favored liberals – and you know, we’re deleting on average 300 posts or actioning 300 posts a day. If you magnify that by however many content moderators there are on a global scale, that’s a lot of stuff that’s getting taken down.”
Though Hartwig signed a confidentiality agreement that prohibits him from ever going public with this information, he says he simply could not live with himself anymore. He is now a whistleblower who wants to get the word out that Facebook is not what Zuckerberg claims it to be.
There are similar problems at Google, which has employed “machine learning fairness” to aid in its censorship efforts. Watch The Health Ranger Report with Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, below to learn more:
Facebook’s Israel Amparan: “Trump supporters are f***ing crazy”
One Facebook moderator that Hartwig says typifies most of the others is Israel Amparan, who vehemently hates Trump supporters and everything they say on the platform. Undercover video shows Amparan cursing at the people he has to censor every day, illustrating the mindset behind this operation.
“Trump supporters are f***ing crazy ***holes, that every other f***ing word out of their mouth is, you know, ‘Come take it,’ ‘Seal the border,'” Amparan is quoted as saying. “Come take it” refers to the ‘Come and Take It’ slogan Texan colonists put on their flag after the Mexican government demanded they turn in their cannon.
On most days, Amparan stays busy targeting pro-Trump content specifically because he says it scares him. Other Facebook content moderators apparently feel the same, as they, too, spend their time removing posts one at a time, if necessary.
“I hate government as much as the next f***ing person,” filthy-mouthed Amparan is further seen stating, “but you’re not going to catch me riding over the f***ing … It’s like impeachment. It’s like a PRAW. Trump called it a f***ing coup – and it’s like that should scare you more than anything.”
PRAW stands for Python Reddit API Wrapper, a tool built in to Reddit software that allows users to quickly and more easily share content to Facebook.
According to Steve Grimmett, a team lead at Facebook-Cognizant’s content review, Trump supporters who use Facebook are lumped into the same category as people who support Hitler, as well as Hitler himself. All of them are tagged as “Dangerous Individuals and Organizations,” and are treated as such.
“One of my projects before now was, was hate,” Grimmett stated. “I’ve spent quite a bit of time looking at pictures of hate organizations, Hitler, Nazis, MAGA, you know, Proud Boys, all that stuff all day long.”
Meanwhile, all kind of hate speech is allowed on Facebook so long as it comes from pro-LGBT sources. Believe it or not, Facebook actually waived its normal hate speech policy to accommodate “pride” month, allowing LGBT zealots the freedom to say and do whatever they want on Facebook without consequence.
