Meta Censoring Sports-Related ‘Hate Speech’ – or Whatever That Means

News & Politics

One strike and … you’re canceled. Tech giant Meta has vowed to censor speech related to major sporting events this summer.

Meta, which owns Facebook, Instagram, Threads and WhatsApp, announced plans to target “bullying, violent threats and hate speech” across its platforms. As sports fans look forward to the UEFA EURO 2024 and the Olympic and Paralympic Games, they now face the added concern of being silenced by biased online censors. 

The Big Tech company also explicitly mentioned its coordination with law enforcement, indicating that no activity or event is exempt from Meta’s mania for crushing free speech.

In its release, Meta openly bragged about its thousands of censors and the vast network lined up to stifle free speech. “Since 2016, we’ve invested more than $20 billion into safety and security and quadrupled the size of our global team working in this area to around 40,000 people. This includes 15,000 content reviewers who review content across Facebook, Instagram and Threads,” Meta proudly declared.

The Big Tech company further boasted that it had censored 95 percent of allegedly violative “hate speech” before it was even reported to the platform. Yet Meta, like other leftist entities, very vaguely defines hate speech and often applies the term to content it dislikes. For instance, in November, Facebook censored a meme stating there are only two genders.

Meta announced several features, including a setting for athletes to automatically hide “offensive” comments. Instagram will also use artificial intelligence to warn users even before they post comments that could be deemed violative. The company will further specifically tailor censorship supposedly to protect women.

Ominously, Meta mentioned its work with law enforcement, without clarifying whether this meant basic legal compliance or work with government entities to censor speech. “We cooperate with law enforcement in their investigations and respond to valid legal requests for information,” Meta stated. 

Notably, Meta is one of the companies accused by Congress and a lawsuit before the Supreme Court of caving to government pressure and censoring content.

Conservatives are under attack. Contact Facebook headquarters at (650) 308-7300 and demand that Big Tech be held to account to mirror the First Amendment while providing transparency, clarity on “misinformation” and equal footing for conservatives.
