Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey and YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki, all three who have repeatedly censored anyone who challenges the orthodoxy surrounding coronavirus policies and treatment, are facing criticism for reportedly refusing to censor a video from hatemonger Louis Farrakhan containing false claims about the coronavirus virus vaccine.
Titled “COVID-19: The Virus And The Vaccine,” the 2-1/2 hour video was still featured on YouTube and being linked to from Facebook and Twitter as of Sunday morning, according to a Fox News report.
This despite the video reportedly containing scenes of Farrakhan describing the vaccine as a “vial of death” and comparing it to the cyanide-laced grape-flavored Flavor Aid (or “Kool-Aid”) used during the Jonestown mass murder-suicide of 1978.
“It is death itself,” he reportedly says of the vaccine in one part of the movie.
Yet here is a tweet containing a promo for the movie, as well as a link to it:

Though the tweet was posted on March 1st, it still remained online as of March 7th — and it didn’t even contain a simple fact-check to push back on its disinformation/misinformation.
Asked late Saturday by Fox News to respond to these discrepancies, Twitter, Facebook and YouTube reportedly remained mum.
There are a few possibilities why the content hasn’t been removed yet. One is that the moderators on all three sites haven’t noticed the content yet.
However, this seems unlikely. Take the tweet above. There are comments underneath it from as far back as March 3rd of users calling out the post’s disinformation/misinformation.
This presentation should be titled, “An Idiot’s Guide to Being a Moron.” You’re going to get people killed because of your ignorance and the ethical failures of your moronic racist leader.

@jack – thought you suspended accounts that disagreed with your version of science?

As President Elect
Hey @TwitterSupport Speaking of misinformation, let’s watch how long this false information gets to hang out on your platform without any repercussions.
I’ve seen people banned from your platform for this, let’s see you follow suit.

@Twitter maybe if you are going to start banning misinformation might want to peek at this

This isn’t even the only example of the Nation of Islam’s Twitter account posting blatant disinformation/misinformation.
Below are some more examples:

Some of the tweets above are months old, yet Twitter refuses to touch them. Why?
Meanwhile, Twitter and its peers continue to purge their networks of dissenting voices who dare to espouse opinions or even facts that belie the left’s distorted worldview.
In January, Twitter suspended a Christian news site for rightly noting that Health and Human Services nominee Dr. Rachel Levine is a biological male.
As of early March, The Daily Citizen’s Twitter page remained online but contained no additional tweets, presumably because the site was refusing to comply with Twitter’s demand that it delete the apparently “offensive” post.
CENSORSHIP ALERT: Twitter banned @FocusCitizen from their platform. The crime? A tweet which identified Asst. Health Sec. pick Rachel Levine as a biological male. If stating the facts gets you banned, none of us belong here. @Twitter, we’re wondering: #AreWeNext? RT to speak out! pic.twitter.com/Z1cUJrK0sZ

Last spring, all three social media networks censored a spate of individuals and organizations for daring to challenge the merits of coronavirus lockdown policies.
“Dr. Knut M. Wittkowski, former head of biostatistics, epidemiology and research design at Rockefeller University, says YouTube removed a video of him talking about the virus that had racked up more than 1.3 million views,” the New York Post reported at teh time.
“Wittkowski, 65, is a ferocious critic of the nation’s current steps to fight the coronavirus. He has derided social distancing, saying it only prolongs the virus’ existence, and has attacked the current lockdown as mostly unnecessary.”
Yet pure disinformation/misinformation from a hatemonger like Farrakhan is allowed to remain?
Another possibility for why his content hasn’t been removed or at least censored yet is because Zuckerberg, Dorsey and Wojcicki view his cult, the Nation of Islam, in a positive light.
After all, Farrakhan is considered a far-leftist. So are they …
