There are two types of people on Facebook … those who know that the establishment and the Facebook executives and content moderators are in bed together, and … well, idiots. As soon as Trump took the Iron Throne, Facebook, Twitter and Google have only multiplied their efforts to dethrone the people’s king.
Conservatives and Trump supporters are censored, publishers bankrupted and deplatformed daily, while threats against the life of President Trump, and ‘white people’ in general are allowed to flourish on the platforms.
Perhaps we have some insight into why as new information about some of the people working for Facebook is coming to light …
[Opinion] Wow, the coordination between the deep state and Silicon Valley is staggering.
Considering everything the left has done, including the Russian Hoax, from Barak Hussein Obama down to FBI informant Stefan Halper, it is a miracle that President Trump has been able to make it through his first term.
With the elections coming up, and the left knowing what weaknesses a Biden presidential run would be exposed to, people from the political world were given high-level jobs at companies like Facebook.
Facebook’s global policy manager for content regulation, Anna Makanju, advised Joe Biden on Ukraine policy during his time as Vice President. She also defended Biden from charges of wrongdoing with regards to Ukraine in a comment to the Washington Post last year.
Why is she important for the Biden team?
She was hired less than a year before the then-VP pressured the Ukrainian government into firing a prosecutor who was investigating the company.
Sleepy Joe openly bragged about illegal quid pro quo dealings with Ukraine, demanding a prosecutor working to indict Biden’s son, Hunter, be fired, or a billion dollars in needed aid would be withheld from their government.
Makanju’s position as a senior employee at Facebook handling content regulation may have given her an opportunity to influence the social network’s decision to suppress a New York Post story revealing that Joe Biden’s son Hunter, then on a lucrative contract with the Ukrainian energy giant Burisma, introduced the then-Vice President to an executive at the company.
Makanju is also a fellow at the Atlantic Council, which partnered with Facebook in 2018 to promote “election integrity” around the world.
Her profile at the Atlantic Council covers Mananju’s ties to Biden:
Anna Makanju is a nonresident senior fellow with the Transatlantic Security Initiative. She is a public policy and legal expert working at Facebook, where she leads efforts to ensure election integrity on the platform. Previously, she was the special policy adviser for Europe and Eurasia to former US Vice President Joe Biden, senior policy adviser to Ambassador Samantha Power at the United States Mission to the United Nations, director for Russia at the National Security Council, and the chief of staff for European and NATO Policy in the Office of the Secretary of Defense.
A 2019 article in the Washington Post notes that Makanju — now in an influential position allowing her to steer Facebook’s content moderation — also specifically defended Biden, her former employer, from allegations of wrongdoing with regards to Ukraine.
The article notes that Makanju was Biden’s senior policy adviser for Ukraine, and that she listened to the former Vice President’s calls with Ukrainian officials.
Anna Makanju, Biden’s senior policy adviser for Ukraine at the time, also listened to the calls and said release of the transcripts would only strengthen Biden’s case that he acted properly. She helped Biden prepare for the conversations and said they operated at a high level, with Biden using language such as Poroshenko’s government being “nation builders for a transformation of Ukraine.”
A reference to a private company such as Burisma would be “too fine a level of granularity” for a call between Biden and the president of another country, Makanju told The Fact Checker. Instead, she said, the conversation focused on reforms demanded by the International Monetary Fund, methods to tackle corruption and military assistance. An investigation of “Burisma was just not significant enough” to mention, she said.
So how do you like those apples.
