Remember the ‘Cold War’? The Iron Curtain? Maybe you don’t. Perhaps you have to be nearing your sell-by date to have experienced that era. How convenient for those who wish to mimic the communist system. For readers who do recall those times I will provide a quick flashback: We were told how communist countries were hiding behind the Iron Curtain. The people there were not free. There was no free media and propaganda ensured that they had little idea about what was happening elsewhere. Worse still – they were warmongers. Anyone showing an interest in Russia and its satellite countries were immediately laballed as ‘reds’ and to be disregarded. Furthermore, we were told that the West was engaged in freedom-fighting. We had fought off the Nazis, at great cost, because we ‘the goodies’ support liberty and freedom of speech. How sad then to see how the ‘freedom’ achieved and paid for with many, many lives is simply being thrown away. No – given away.
The US has introduced new laws enabling them to tap into just about anything;
Western mainstream news programmes are seemingly just as selective about news stories as any USSR media were.
Propaganda is rife i.e. one-sided reporting of the Israel/Palestinian issue and free speech is endangered. It could just be coincidence of course but shortly after the blogposts about Boston and my comment about the involvement of military personnel in apparent scaremongering I find that my Facebook account requires me to prove I am not a robot! OK I type in the letters and I’m back in Facebook, only to discover that the blogs links I post now lead to a page where it is suggested that the blog is spam!
Whatever your opinion of my blog I’m sure you’ll agree that it is not spam. I make no money from this blog, Facebook, so what would be the point of spamming? The adverts are from WordPress. Regular readers know that the blog contains genuine comment on issues often not covered by mainstream. It is text-rich and liked on Google for that reason. It is genuine! So what possible reason could Facebook have for suspecting that this is spam – after the comments about the American military personnel (I’m sure it’s a coincidence. They wouldn’t have certain trigger words set up, would they?).
Facebook does itself no favours by doing this because I will continue to raise awareness of attempted censorship until the issue is resolved. Frankly, there is nothing but nothing about my blog that could be considered to be spam therefore I take this to be an infringement of free speech.
PLEASE HIT THE ‘NOT SPAM’ BUTTON IF YOU LINK THROUGH FACEBOOK. THIS INFORMATIVE BLOG WILL NEVER SPAM YOU. I PROMISE.
