Nigel Farage addresses censorship and suppression of free speech by the monopolistic Facebook , their unconstitutional attack on conservatives and how to stop it…
As one who presently has his ability to communicate over Facebook seriously degraded by their censors for posting the truth about Zuckerberg’s complicity with George Soros in censoring conservatives and their plans to interfere in future elections here in the US and abroad, this is a topic that strikes home.

When your account is disabled, there is no explanation other than a cookie-cutter mailing, no realistic method of appeal or redress and no way to recapture years of building a following or even letting those with whom you have a relationship know what happened.
Zuckerberg likes being the communications dictator, a character defect that Nigel Farage addresses diplomatically, but in no uncertain terms, noting his own experience with Zuckerberg’s war on the right, conservative thought and more importantly, our ability to express our thoughts in speech over his monopolistic public utility that, though privately held, is clearly in violation of anti-trust laws and needs to be broken up just as Bell Telephone was back in the 1970s.
Nigel Farage, addressing Zuckerberg in the EU Parliament, informs him that he watched his testimony on Capitol Hill and “time and again people asked you, ‘is this genuinely a neutral political platform?’ And you come up with the same line again and again, it’s well-crafted, you say that Facebook is a platform for all ideas.”
Recognizing the importance of social media in the Brexit, Trump and Italian victories, and the power it provides to the people to circumvent mainstream media, Farage adds, “Now, perhaps you’re horrified by this creation of yours and what it’s led to, I don’t know. But what is absolutely true is that since January of this year, you’ve changed your modus operandi, you’ve changed your algorithms, and it has led directly to a very substantial drop in views and engagements for those that have got right of center political opinions.”
Farage cites the drop in numbers by President Trump, himself, and “thousands of other conservative commentators and on average we’re down about 25% over the course of this year. And you know,” he says which a sarcastic chuckle, “that’s happening on a ‘platform for all ideas.'”

Farage continues, “I am not talking, here, Mr. Zuckerberg, about extremism. I’m not talking about encouraging violence. I’m not talking about hatred of anybody. I’m talking about people who have majority, mainstream opinions and frankly, I feel they are being woefully discriminated against.”
Farage says, “What interests me is who decides what is acceptable? Who are these people you referred to earlier, these third party fact checkers? Who are these people? Why is there no transparency in this process at all?” He’s not being dramatic. Anyone who has been through the censorship can verify that there is no due process and that it is strictly arbitrary and clinically anti-conservative.
In a thinly-veiled threat of the action that desperately needs to be taken against the hateful, grossly anti-conservative thought policing and suppression operation Zuckerberg is running, Farage says, “I’m not generally somebody that calls for legislation on the international stage but I’m beginning to wonder whether we need a social media bill of rights to basically protect free speech.”
He closes by asking, “And I’m asking you today, very, very clearly, would you accept that today, Facebook is not a platform for all ideas that is operated impartially?”
Zuckerberg immediately goes into the same scripted commentary he used during his performance before Congress, stating platitudes and never really addressing the concerns of Mr. Farage specifically or honestly. He also doesn’t answer the question.
An international or even a domestic US social media bill of rights is an interesting idea. A breakup of Facebook or oversight by a truly independent entity would be an important first step in restoring the free speech promised in our Constitution, which is now being stifled under the guise of a quasi-private public utility that is blatantly political and aggressive in nature.
Farage has said what few in our Congress has the guts or integrity or independence from bribery to say on our behalf – Facebook is dishonest and they are the enemy of patriots, our values and this nation.
