Posh Peggy Noonan Writes “How to Find a Good Leader” for Americans in Posh Wall Street Journal

Firstly, it is important to note that Posh Peg and those  countless sniveling  snots like her pontificating about what and who  ignorant America should vote for these days, President, Senator, Congresswoman or whatever  is a Poshess, an elite-ess “laboring” from season to season at the Wall Street Journal.   She often refers to other Poshesses and Poshers, copies of herself,  to bully up her writings to underscore the some  power and range of her understanding of today’s socialist, under-educated feminized America from this particular Journal.

This WSJ is NOT an American journal….but, a WORLD JOURNAL owned by Aussies, otherwise known as socialist Island Brits.   Its concern for a democratic, freedom-loving, honest,  learned, Godfearing America is dead.   The nation is being feminized.  Feelings are far more important that seeking Truth and Problem Solving for a better human future.

After about 25 years of subscription, today’s Friday, November 3, 2018, is my final issue to be sent by mail to my box here in Hopkins area Minnesota.    It has been the only ‘daily’ conservative, even occasional conservative American news press of business  available for honest and Godfearing citizens seeking Truth via news in our daily discourse  during these years….my opinion, of course!  (I am 84, so there aren’t many decades of seeking Truth lying around to help me ‘make my day’!)

I used to be a Democrat…..because I married one in 1957 and wanted to keep our peace.   Unlike today Democrats in operation were civilized and American then.   I have been interested in our nation’s politics since the Presidential election between Tom Dewey and Harry Truman.  My Dad was a Republican, and therefore so was my Mom.   It was the first Presidential election I followed election returns on maps with state outlines.  I used colored pencils, red for Dems and blue for Reps.  (I was rooting for Harry.   He ‘kinda’ looked like my mom’s German dad,  grandfather Herman Danner,  who had died the year before.)

I am not certain what Lady Peggy means by “GOOD” in her “How to Find a Good Leader” article title.   How about “HOW TO FIND A GREAT LEADER?” …..but America, at last, HAS A GREAT LEADER IN WHITE HOUSE, DONALD JOHN TRUMP!!

Donald John Trump is a very bright human male raised by wonderful parents, led by a successful dad whom he adored, respected and whose trade he chose to follow.   That I did know for years…..those years when local urban newspapers were independent from today’s corps of  leftist propaganda  from the politically   corrupt  New York Times and Washington Post  who feed them every day from coast to coast.

Before August 6, 2015 I was a prisoner of the American habit of elevating lawyers fair and fowl to the White House.   I used to teach social studies to urban high school kids in the 1960s.  To this day I still am imprisoned by reading hours of history….whether Aztec or Soviet.  Yet, I had been programmed by habit to believe only lawyers, the most dishonest gang in the human crowd, were qualified to be offered as U.S. Presidential candidate.

It was a boring crowd of Republicans the GOP was offering to America to defeat Crooked Hillary of the billionaire class, that August 6.  It was Donald John Trump Party Gods were trying hard to dump hoping  another Bush could run their show.

That evening was Fox’s turn to dump Trump at the GOP  Presidential “debate”.  After serving candy canes to the rest of the nine or so candidates on stage, Megyn Kelly was preened to ask Candidate Trump about his troubles with women……calling them pigs, etc and etc…she charged.    The Fox GOP camera was already fixed on the victim candidate standing at the microphone as she asked him “Is this the way you feel about all women?”

….and in two seconds answered….”Only Rosie O’Donnell”.   Two-thirds of the Fox Debate audience nearly all who hated Trump as a candidate,  exploded in laughter!

It was that August 6, 2015, that moment I suddenly felt thrilled America had a candidate who could keep that Evil Hillary out of the White House…..and so, I thought, could those Trump haters who laughed so loudly, so approvingly, so truthfully about Dem Rosie.

Donald Trump never changed into different Donald…or a George…or  a Bush.   He remained an American who loved his country and was deeply worried about where it was going….especially after eight years of  leftist trained, Saul Alinsky student, Barack Hussein Obama as President who had promised he would change America forever during his time in office.

Posh Peggy didn’t seem happy Our Donald was defeating Crooked Hillary that wonderful November 8 of AD 2016.   She was starring on CBS that night to opine about the contest as it progressed….not in Hillary’s favor.

Is there a daily newspaper anywhere in America that isn’t propagandized on its news pages from leftist Washington Post, the New York Times, or Los Angeles Times?   Does anyone read the Boston Globe anymore…even in Boston?

About one/third of the 2016 GOP voting crowd turned  William Kristolnacht that voting November 8,  and have never regained consciousness and civility.  I was hoping the Journal’s Peggy Noonan would have been one them.   She is capable of good thought in political writing.

Yes, the President generalizes, exaggerates occasionally…..His enemies, his dislikers like this Posh Peg  pounce on his  syllables, adjectives, absent their snobbery and scenery…..and/or pretend he doesn’t exist and therefore has done nothing to make anyone Proud of America anymore.

I HAVE FOUND A GREAT LEADER FOR AMERICA……IT IS A “HE”…..IT IS DONALD JOHN TRUMP!    (Yet, is there a news industry in this land, America, that provides news from a fair and honest conservative concept in the form of a newspaper?

 

President Trump, The Teacher at the Rallies!

Media don’t get it about Trump’s rallies

by Thomas Lifson  at  American Thinker:

..

In a must-read essay at RealClearPolitics.com, Adele Malpass explains how President Trump is “transforming” the midterms through an unprecedented flurry of campaign rallies in support of his party’s legislative candidates.  What’s remarkable to me is that so few journalists understand her points and need to have it laid out for them:

One of the new dynamics in this midterm election is President Trump reprising the rallies that helped fuel his victory in 2016.  While it’s common for presidents to campaign during midterms, arena-size crowds at rallies all over the country is a new phenomenon, and these events have proven to be a powerful way to communicate with, and excite, base voters.


Trump rally in Cedar Rapids, Iowa (via Wikimedia Commons).

This is hardly new, as anyone with a memory able to capture and retain what happened two years ago should know.

In 2016, Trump had the ability to fill arenas in multiple states on the same day, but some in the media played down the importance of rallies even after he won the election.  In response, White House aide Kellyanne Conway said in a post-election analysis: “The size of rallies matters.”  Recently, the president echoed that point in a tweet:

There are many benefits to these rallies, including offering the president an opportunity to respond to his critics and test out his base’s reaction to talking points he spontaneously offers.

Only at the very end of her article does Malpass mention what is to me the most potent benefit:

And each person who attends a rally is potentially a force multiplier as they recount the experience to their friends and relatives either directly or through social media.  It’s hard to measure this impact until votes are counted, but the size of the rallies is an indication of something potentially powerful afoot in the 2018 election dynamics.

Let me state this bluntly.  The rallies are designed to produce a corps of evangelists, people who will bend the ears of everyone they know about the wonderfulness of Trump and the evil of his critics.  Nearly all of the people motivated to ask for tickets and then stand in line for hours, and maybe not get in but wait outside watching the rally on big-screen TVs in the company of other Trump fans, were already going to support Trump.  The experience of sharing their convictions with a vast crowd of thousands of people just like them produces a form of euphoria that develops in like-minded crowds.

That euphoria translates into efforts to persuade family members to get out and vote, often as not filling out advance ballots and mailing them in.  This is why early voting by Republican-registered voters is breaking records.  Ten thousand attendees at a rally can translate into fifty thousand or more votes stirred by the evangelists.

Media people are professionally inclined to dismiss the importance of rallies precisely because they are invested in the notion that media are the principal drivers of voting behavior.  The idea that face-to-face conversations could drive more votes than airtime or print space that they produce is anathema.

The models used by pollsters have absolutely no way to accommodate the effects of rally evangelists.  But people who don’t ordinarily vote, or who choose candidates based on hair, appearance, or other silly factors – casual voters, in other words – are far more influenced by what friends and relatives say and believe than they are by what strangers in the media say or write.

Watch where Trump speaks.  We learned from the 2016 election that rallies are very strategically planned for places where evangelists will have the greatest probability of success.

I expect Republicans to overperform in this election, at least compared to media expectations.

The Confused Leftist Doctor’s Troubles 36 Year Ago and Judge Kavanaugh

Full Replay: Dr. Christine Ford, Brett Kavanaugh Testimony To Congress

by Ian Schwartz at realclearpolitics:

 

Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, who has accused Kavanaugh of sexual assault while they were teenagers, testify separately before the Senate Judiciary Committee. The two hearings spanned 10am to 6:30pm.

You can read the entire transcript here.

President Trump stood by Kavanaugh in a tweet sent after today’s hearing concluded.

What About that Feinstein Smear and Lie Attack upon Judge Kavanaugh?

A CASE OF MISTAKEN IDENTITY?

by John Hinderaker  at PowerLine:

A few days ago–it seems like a year–there was considerable buzz around the idea that Christine Ford might have described something close to an actual event, but identified the wrong perpetrator. That speculation has since faded. However, within the last two hours the Judiciary Committee put out a statement that summarizes events in the Kavanaugh smear from July 30 to the present. The chronology provides overwhelming evidence of bad faith on the part of the Democratic Senators on the committee, and the lawyers representing the “accusers.”

In the morning I will post the entire chronology, but for now, here are the most intriguing items:

September 24: Committee staff have first interview with a man who believes he, not Judge Kavanaugh, had the encounter with Dr. Ford in 1982 that is the basis of his complaint. He submitted a written statement earlier in the day.

September 25: Committee staff have a second interview with a man who believes he, not Judge Kavanaugh, had the encounter with Dr. Ford in the summer of 1982 that is the basis of her allegation. He described his recollection of their interaction in some detail.

September 26: Committee staff receives a more in-depth written statement from the man interviewed twice previously who believes he, not Judge Kavanuagh, had the encounter in question with Dr. Ford.
***
Committee investigative staff spoke via phone with another man who believes he, not Judge Kavanuagh, had the encounter with Dr. Ford in 1982 that is the basis of her allegation. He explained his recollection of the details of the encounter.

It will be interesting to see whether one or both of these gentlemen appear at tomorrow’s hearing.

Will the Tool of the Dems Feminist Fascists Show Up on Thursday?

WILL SHE OR WON’T SHE?

by John Hinderaker  at  PowerLine:

Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley today rejected the Democrats’ request to delay Thursday’s hearing on Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court. (The real hearing, of course, ended a couple of weeks ago, and this is a post-hearing farce.) His letter to Senator Dianne Feinstein is embedded below. A few choice quotes:

You suggest that Dr. Ford’s testimony should be further delayed because of allegations made in the New Yorker by Deborah Ramirez. I am unclear why Ms. Ramirez’s claims should have any bearing on Dr. Ford’s testimony. In fact, the obvious connection between the two claims is that Senate Democrats hid both allegations of misconduct from the Committee and the public.

I think Grassley is losing patience. At last.

As of now, the only allegations of which the Committee is aware with respect to Ms. Ramirez are the allegations described in the New Yorker. As you know, false statements made to the press are not subject to criminal penalty, but false statements to Congress are. If Ms. Ramirez submits testimony and evidence to the Senate Judiciary Committee, which Committee investigators have requested, we can decide how to proceed. But, at this time, Democratic staff has not shared any such evidence it has with Republican staff.

Here is the letter; click to enlarge:


I should add that the letter comes from Margot Cleveland’s Twitter feed, the only place I have seen it.

Grassley’s letter assumes that Ford will testify on Thursday pursuant to the Committee’s invitation, but it is not clear that Ford will actually show up. At last word, Committee staff were still going back and forth with Ford’s lawyers–who are obnoxious partisans–about the logistics of her testimony. In my view, Ford’s lawyers (who is paying them, by the way?) seem to be looking for a way out, an excuse for Ford not to appear.

Why might Ms. Ford want to dodge a Committee appearance? Grassley’s admonition with regard to the criminal penalties for lying to Congress apply to Ford as much as to Ramirez, and, while there is probably zero chance of Ford facing criminal prosecution–however much she may deserve it–lying under oath is uncomfortable for most people. I think it is entirely possible that Ford may not appear on Thursday, in which case the Democrats’ delaying tactics will collapse and Kavanaugh will speedily be confirmed. Alternatively, if Ford does show up, she will face cross-examination by an actual lawyer, which could have the same effect. Speaking for myself, I would gladly cross-examine her for free; or would have during my lawyer days, anyway. Her testimony, should she choose to give it, is ridiculously weak.

A reader raises some questions about Ford’s account that, while obviously secondary at best, given her story’s patent falsity, are nevertheless interesting and could play a part in her apparent reluctance to testify under oath:

Could the house where the alleged party took place actually be…Christine’s house? Maybe her parents were away. That would explain why (1) no one drove her there; (2) no one drove her “home” after the alleged incident; (3) why she couldn’t tell her parents. She never left her own party which is why Leland didn’t notice anything.

It’s not like her family wasn’t relatively socially prominent in the area; her father was president of Burning Tree at one point. There would have been hell to pay if he ever knew that his daughter had been “assaulted” by Georgetown Prep kids.

There were, supposedly 5 kids present. The party, as has been pointed out, must have been held at the home of one of them. Or are we to believe it was at the (empty) house of someone not present?

No wonder she doesn’t want to testify! I can see a great female criminal attorney or litigator destroying her in cross examination.

So can I. I will say, however, that the more salient reason why Ford couldn’t tell her parents about the assault is that the assault never happened. It was manufactured decades after the fact for political purposes.

9-08-2016: “Our Donald Is The Most Exciting, The Most American, The Most Successful Builder to Reach The White House”

The Article titled above was written two months before “Our Donald” was duly elected the 45th President of these United States that evening of November 8.  Its content is reprinted below!!!    Think of the Leftist evil created, perpetuated by President Barack Hussein Obama’s tenure promising to change our America forever……  the nation’s present FASCISTIC DEMOCRAT PARTY, its PRESS from coast to coast, its FBI, its SCHOOLS AND UNIVERSITIES, its TELEVISION NEWS, its HOLLYWOOD ENTERTAINMENT, its FEMINIST FANATICS!

WHATEVER HAPPENED TO GODFEARING TRUTH?

“September 8, 2016:  At a week or two from my 82nd birthday, today’s beautiful Twin City weather has permitted me to return to my landscape gardening labors, a major love of my life.

I have come to love OUR DONALD TRUMP at the same level I have come to  respect OUR DENNIS PRAGER since I first discovered him on radio twelve years ago.  No two men have so reinvigorated my  hope for America’s civilized future, now under assault from vicious leftist political animals led by Barack Hussein Obama and Crooked Hillary.

I had an opportunity to tune in to Dennis’ second hour radio ‘lesson’ this Minnesota AM.

Dennis was defending his recent support for my candidate for the White House, Donald J. Trump.  The narrow of mind have been angry at  Our Dennis for his turn to Our Donald…..as I knew he would when Our Dennis cooled down from his purity heights of last winter.

I wrote the following article last February when Our Dennis was angrily and loudly blaspheming Our Donald, when emotion overcame Dennis’ interest in truth and logic.

“These are difficult times in our America.   Assaults on our traditional values based upon JudeoChristianity are under attack from all fronts, at home and abroad.

The last refuge for our  America, its goals, its duties, its values based upon our Biblical lessons from the  past, is our Republican Party today…..and, until recently,  preachers like our Dennis, as if lone wolves howling melodies from deep in our Minnesota forests, have kept  the  light of civilized  human life lit.

Dennis is Jewish, a conservative one, making him a very rare creature in this community  since his college years, as I remember from his preachings  when  I first met his speaking on radio in  October,  2004.

Raising this point is not intended to be a put down statement to anyone…..as today’s Media Matters’ atheistic Jews would pick up as a weapon to destroy me (and Donald Trump) if I (or he,) became  a noted conservative running for political office.

Dennis has become, and will continue to be,  part of my family in my continuing old age.   I respect him, but no one is perfect, and our Dennis has been very ‘unperfect’  for his war of hate against  Our Donald.

As I used to remind my senior high school students, “Whatever I say or write is a matter of MY opinion”.

Donald Trump seems to have  arrived not into Dennis’s  inquisitive brain, but onto Dennis’ nose….so close to his eye he can’t see things profoundly  Donald,  and therefore has no clue regarding who this, “Our” Donald is, where he really comes from, what he really thinks, what he really is driving at, what his goals are, but instead  sees nothing    good, absorbing only  countless Donald  faults…..and there are a lot of them which irritate even us, his  best allies.

Dennis’ sin is a human sin so common in us all.   Our tolerance for matters new in our life’s experience become  more firmly grounded in us as we age.   By Nature we aging  males  wonder more and more  about life’s  whispers of  wisdom and life’s  purpose beyond our  cemented  securities held tight by the   brick and mortar of experience.

For thirty five years I have known this Donald Trump through television and the press…who he was, what he seemed to be, what he did in life, and how he did it according to pages from the press and sites on television.  This Trump was a New Yorker to boot.

I wanted no part from him.   I was totally today’s  “Dennis Prager” regarding our Donald…. until this mid-to-late summer past when I began to realize this Trump is truly serious about competing  as a Republican to become America’s president in 2017.

The Republicans were offering a Jeb Bush, God forbid, the dull, awkward Republican one, the  brother of nice guy but also awkward functionary,  limited Republican, not very conservative USA president, GW;    Ted Cruz, a boring talkie-talkie functionary who had a great reputation as a debater;    the boy, nice guy, functionary Republican guy,  Senator Rubio, with a terrific family story to tell America, but jobless after his Senate stint was over;  and some  awkward, grumpy Republican guy governor from Ohio.  Boring!!!

And then there was chubby,  Obama-hugging prosecuting attorney,  New Jersey guy.

All functionaries…..nothing new or thrilling about that list…..SO I LOOKED UP OUR DONALD THROUGH THE INTERNET, just to see where he might fit,  fully prepared by prejudice to discover  countless reasons I should despise him as an American, as a Republican, as our 45th President of the United States.

To be brief I loved what I read…..(Despite noticing America might have her first lady in the White House who might  appear a bit bimboish,  my prejudice, folks).

I found out the Donald was very well liked by those who work for him, deal with him.  He  had children unspoiled who learned from their father to work for a living,  that he was a builder and even a successful tv celebrity , far from my tastes in  life, and that his first wife recently  wrote an article exceedingly  favorably about this guy as a human being.

Religiously….Our Donald claims he’s a Presbyterian.  He announced it so.    I’m guessing he doesn’t really know how screwball most Presbytries  are these days…atheists, Israel haters, leftists’ churches to go to practice feminism and points leftier.

By God, if he’s found God again, go to it, Donald!

Dear Dennis and other such anti-Trump RNC bigots….Donald Trump is and has never been a politician in his life!   He has not practiced  its habits, the smooth  or  the sleazy.

Dear Dennis an other such anti-Trump RNC  bigots…..  Donald Trump, a builder, a natural  gambler in business,  has had ups and downs in life…..many of them….and he bounces back a winner.

Today, our America needs a winner!!!!

No one can match him in personality  or in ways he can botch up a sentence, especially when he is roused.   And, above all…..Dennis,  Donald Trump is a practicing conservative in business  who has had to take chances in the  world in which he’s worked and starred.   You smear him, as do your fellow establishment Republicans for pressing eminent domain expansion for one of his countless business projects, this one in Atlantic City as one of Trump’s cruelties.   He was “picking” on a 74 year old gal who lived in a house Trump’s company wanted for a parking lot.

How unAmerican!    Fine, Dennis.  All other RNC Republicans are safe from such a case as this…..What has any of them, Marco, Ted, Jeb,  Kasich, Rand Paul,  even charming Michael Huckabee ever built?   What have they ever done outside of lawyering and playing politics or selling words?

I have been shunning you,  Dennis, on radio recently, for I do not want to lose faith in you  as an honest broker you’ve  always been…before our Donald issue.   I, out of curiosity today, turned to your  Radio Show  near the end of the second hour….

A very articulate, bright but nervous guy, well speaking  guy of twenty-some years of military life  guy…who, like me,  LOVES our Donald for his conservative life, for his guts, for his in-your-face every day Americanisms…..regardless how awkward he might articulate them from time to time…and for his CONSERVATISM!

But, Our Dennis didn’t hear his caller AT ALL….

Dennis, like Ted Cruz, is a champion debater. Unless a celebrity, Dennis, by habit, although he tries to be polite,   treats callers as students, lower class  than radio class professionals…..

He politely listened to this eloquent ex-military guy….both of them making me proud of the Americans they both are.  And then Dennis asked,  “Don’t you care when Trump said  George W. Bush lied about  Iraq possessing  weapons of mass destruction”…..and  another similar Trumpism as well, which I couldn’t take note of  fast enough….. Military-hero man inferred “NO”……(As my answer would have been, for the statement was made in a moment of heat)  and went on to list more solid, mindful  items why he became a Trumpy….but Dennis had to conclude the discussion….

……..and re-established himself very high on his Dennis Prager morality throne  saying that he, DENNIS PRAGER DID CARE ABOUT COMMENTS LIKE OUR DONALD MAKES FROM TIME TO TIME.

Dennis felt good.  He had won his debate……but remained totally unaware of why so many of us, including  probably the majority of males who still support both Rubio and Cruz, will vote for DONALD TRUMP whenever we have the chance.

They cannot speak Prager words, for these men and their wives are not debaters or radio show hosts.   Some, perhaps many have never voted Republican before…GOD FORBID!!!! Dennis….. I,  who have been active as a Republican in my continuing 36 years of voting only Republican in every contested election, am NOW  deemed unconservative, and therefore an outcast this coming March 1, 2016 when I arrive to vote for Donald Trump in the primary  as my man for the 2017 White House.

Dennis wimps about Our Donald’s verbage as it is in his profession to do.   Yes, our Donald has spoken and done things LIBERAL in his business past.   But, Dennis, Donald hasn’t had your or even my ‘verbage’ life.   He has been a businessman with other talents needed for success.   He’s very quick minded which seems to interfere occasionally with his verbage sources.

I hope our Donald  guy snubs automaton  Republicans,  AND the  liberal press and the rest of its American empire, AND REFUSES TO HAND OVER HIS INCOME TAXES FROM  HIS PAST….as an invasion of his American privacy that it is.

I hold my breath every time Donald opens his mouth when he’s teed off.   He is NOT a politician or a debater like you, Dennis.   He is a builder, a business man, who seems also to like the entertainment industry….What is so unAmerican about that?

He doesn’t  have your training of smooth-talk language!  I wish he did!    Nor do you at times, Dennis, when you lose it….actually the times I often  LOVE YOU MOST!….because you scream like you think it is, and have the guts to let loose!   Trump  blow ups, such as the one about GW and weapons of mass destruction are products of his temper perhaps from some prejudice he heard from the past instead of swearing at his opponent.  Some times we are not at our best as you truly are, when we lose our cool.   That Donald  was for the War  or against the War in Iraq are  probably both TRUE,  but arrive again  from his verbal past.   Why are we conservatives  telling folks he lied?

From Trump’s very entry into this political race he has met conservative enemies at all fronts…ALL FRONTS.  His entry has stirred more interest, conversation, action, do, what not to do, yes, no, why, who said,  and so on….in my lifetime of being engrossed following America’s presidential elections since the beginning of my awareness  in 1948,  Truman vs. Dewey.

Good Luck, Dennis and Donald!!  I hope you can come to know each other well!   You both will be elevated by the experience, I’m sure!

NOTE:   Dennis!   Has our Donald ever  turned down an invitation to speak with you during your show?   Has he been invited?”

Dennis spent much of his middle radio hour defending himself to his regular conservative listeners for now  teaming  with Trump….much of it pejorative dictated by  politeness rather  intellect.  (Dennis, Our Donald is and was by far,  the best of all seventeen GOP wannabees last  February!    All of those wannabees are far better Americans far better qualified to lead America to a better future than the famous Ugliest  of Americans, the so very crooked, the lying  Hillary Roddham Clinton, wife of that lying William Jefferson Clinton….”ah never had sex with that woman….Miss Lewinsky”.)”

…….What is America’s condition,  reality today, November 13, 2018?   OUR DONALD HAS BECOME OUR AMERICAN CHAMPION……DESPITE OBAMA’S FASCISTICS, DESPITE RINO LEADERSHIP OF  MITCH MCCONNELL AND PAUL RYAN!?!

Hate Speech According to Facebook

Facebook’s Definition Of “Hate Speech” Grows Even More Bizarre

by Jazz Shaw  at HotAir:

We’ve touched on this story here already but it’s since spiraled a bit further outside the boundaries of reality. Facebook recently deleted a post from William Gheen, of the Americans for Legal Immigration Political Action Committee (ALIPAC). The post had to do with the murder of Mollie Tibbetts by an illegal alien (who actually was an illegal alien, despite coverage you may have seen in the MSM to the contrary) and how it related to problems with our current immigration law enforcement efforts. The social network giant eventually apologized for doing so, and for suspending Gheen’s account in the process, but their explanation of how the “mistake” took place actually seemed to make things worse. (Washington Times, emphasis added)

The admission came hours after William Gheen, head of Americans for Legal Immigration Political Action Committee, said he’d had his post removed and been slapped with a 24-hour ban for posting what Facebook said was “hate speech.”

Mr. Gheen was surprised by the move because his post had talked about illegal immigration but he didn’t think it crossed any lines.

Facebook now agrees.

We mistakenly removed a comment by William Gheen and restored it as soon as we were able to investigate because it did not violate our community standards,” the company said in a statement to The Washington Times. “Our team processes millions of reports each week, and sometimes we get things wrong. We are sorry this happened.”

Keep those last two sentences in mind for a moment. We might write this off as a simple clerical error (or the digital equivalent thereof) but it would be a mistake to look at this incident in a vacuum. Consider also the question of what happened to Salena Zito’s column at the New York Post.

Within two hours I started receiving a handful of notes from people who are friends on my personal Facebook page that their posting of my piece, entitled “Why Trump’s supporters won’t care about Cohen and Manafort,” telling me it had been removed.

Sometimes the removal was accompanied by a message from Facebook. “Spam” was the most common reason given, but a couple of people were told Facebook removed the post because “it did not follow our Community Standards.” …

The post was gone.

Posts and links to Zito’s column were also later restored after people complained. But in each case, it was reported that these deletions for “violations of community standards” were not carried out by an algorithm, but rather when some other Facebook user flagged the message and an employee of Facebook removed it after determining that it qualified as “hate speech.”

This means that there are two avenues for the removal of “offending” content on Facebook. They’ve already admitted to algorithm alorithm which scans the billions of updates every day looking for certain keywords and phrases. But there are also customer service employees manually looking at items flagged by the community and making the determination as to whether or not the content is offensive and worthy of suppression. Neither of these methods is worth a hill of beans and I’ll tell you why.

Taylor wrote about this alleged algorithm problem on Friday, but I think he was being a bit too generous. True, some of these issues may have been caused by a new automated function, but the high profile articles and links that draw a lot of traffic shouldn’t have been caught in that trap. Taylor also mentioned that human monitors would be better than algorithms. True in theory, but they could only (at most) handle entries which are drawing massive numbers of complaints and flags. The number of new updates on Facebook each day would require roughly 91% of the population of the planet to work for Facebook screening content full time to keep up.

I think we’ve been able to glean enough information from Facebook’s frequently cryptic responses to complaints to verify what I was guessing at above. There are two channels to handle “hate speech.” One is automated and one requires human agents responding to complaints to evaluate the content. But there’s zero question that the amount content being flagged and the number of users being suspended skews wildly toward conservative voices. If you hire coders who build the algorithm to primarily squelch conservatives and you hire liberal “customer service” people to handle complaints, that’s a wholly predictable result.

It’s not that Facebook’s code is flawed. It’s not that their monitors are somehow innocently ignorant. It’s that the company is populated by liberals with an agenda, regardless of what Mark Zuckerberg attempts to claim to the contrary. They’re using content monitoring systems which could, perhaps, work if they could somehow be made ideologically neutral. But under the current leadership, it’s destined to fail from the start. And at the risk of being a bit too harsh, this failure isn’t a bug. It’s a feature.

(I believe Prager University is presently suing prejudiced Facebook censors for zapping dozens of Prager University five minute lessons from its world of “communication”.   Prager University  underscores traditional American values,  learnings, and freedoms apparently foreign to Zuckerberg Facebook leftist fascistics.)
