The social networking giant Facebook.com has labeled Alex Jones’ new documentary film Fall Of The Republic to be “abusive” and is blocking some links to the film from its website, preventing the movie from spreading virally like the Obama Deception, which received tens of millions of viewers despite a Facebook policy to block it too.
A You Tube video illustrates that when a Facebook user attempts to ’share’ a link to the video, that is post it as a status update on their Facebook page, they get a message telling them the function has been blocked because the video is “abusive”.
The full message reads, “Warning: This Message Contains Blocked Content – Some content in this message has been reported as abusive by Facebook users.”
There seems little doubt that the Facebook users who reported the film as “abusive” are Obama kool-aid drinkers who think it’s a hate crime to point out that their demagogue has broken every single promise he made before the election, as Fall Of The Republic masterfully documents.
It is important to stress that this does not occur for all versions of Fall Of The Republic posted on Facebook. For example, the link posted at the top of http://www.facebook.com/FallOfTheRepublic can still be shared. However, if it is a policy for Facebook to block links to this film, then we can expect more different versions to be censored in future.
If Facebook has crafted a policy to block links to Fall Of The Republic, it would befit everything that we know about the California-based company.
Shortly after the release of The Obama Deception in March this year, we started getting reports that Facebook was threatening to delete user accounts of people who were posting You Tube links to the film. A Facebook user who attempted to post the film on her profile page first had her ability to post links revoked and then her account was deleted altogether.
Facebook has been staunchly pro-Obama since his election, even offering an ‘Obama skin’ page design that the company bragged was used by hundreds of thousands of people.
The video below illustrates how Facebook is blocking some versions of Fall Of The Republic.
