Leaked 49-page memo documents how George Soros is behind social media censorship

A new leaked memo obtained by The Free Beacon documents how George Soros funded groups plotted with Google, Facebook, Twitter and other social media platforms to eliminate conservative “right wing propaganda.”

The recent wave of censorship of conservative voices on the internet by tech giants Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and Apple mirrors a plan concocted by a coalition of George Soros-funded, progressive groups to take back power in Washington from President Trump’s administration.

confidential, 49-page memo for defeating Trump by working with the major social-media platforms to eliminate “right wing propaganda and fake news” was presented in January 2017  by Media Matters founder David Brock at a retreat in Florida with about 100 donors, the Washington Free Beacon reported at the time.

The Gateway Pundit reported that in January 2017 after Hillary Clinton was shellacked in the November 2016 election top Democrat operatives at Media Matters, Share Blue, American Bridge, and CREW came together and released their two-year plan to take back power in Washington DC.

The document obtained by The Free Beacon states that Media Matters and other Soros funded groups have “access to raw data from Facebook, Twitter, and other social media sites” so they can “systemically monitor and analyze this unfiltered data.”

According to the document, the radical left groups have been working with Facebook and Twitter to eliminate conservative content.

The Free Beacon obtained a copy of the memo, “Democracy Matters: Strategic Plan for Action,” by attending a January 2017 retreat in Florida sponsored by Media Matters founder David Brock and 100 donors.

WND reports that the memo spells out a four-year agenda that deployed Media Matters along with American Bridge, Shareblue and Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) to attack Trump and Republicans. The strategies are impeachment, expanding Media Matters’ mission to combat “government misinformation,” ensuring Democratic control of the Senate in the 2018 midterm elections, filing lawsuits against the Trump administration, monetizing political advocacy, using a “digital attacker” to delegitimize Trump’s presidency and damage Republicans, and partnering with Facebook to combat “fake news.”

WND reports…

The document claims Media Matters and far-left groups have “access to raw data from Facebook, Twitter, and other social media sites” so they can “systemically monitor and analyze this unfiltered data.”

“The earlier we can identify a fake news story, the more effectively we can quash it,” the memo states. “With this new technology at our fingertips, researchers monitoring news in real time will be able to identify the origins of a lie with mathematical precision, creating an early warning system for fake news and disinformation.”

Media Matters met with Facebook, which boasts some 2 billion members worldwide, to discuss how to crack down on fake news, according to the memo.

The social media giant was provided with “a detailed map of the constellation of right-wing Facebook pages that had been the biggest purveyors of fake news.”

Brock’s memo also says Media Matters gave Google “the information necessary to identify 40 of the worst fake new sites” so they could be banned from Google’s advertising network.

The Gateway Pundit pointed out that in 2016, Google carried out that plan on the Gateway Pundit blog and other conservative sites, including Breitbart, the Drudge Report, Infowars, Zero Hedge and Conservative Treehouse.

Facebook, meanwhile has changed its newsfeed algorithm, ostensibly to combat “fake news,” causing a precipitous decline in traffic for many conservative sites.

President Donald Trump himself was affected, with his engagement on Facebook dropping by 45 percent.

A study in June by Gateway Pundit found Facebook had eliminated 93 percent of the traffic of top conservative news outlets.

Western Journal, in its own study, found that while left-wing publishers saw a roughly 2 percent increase in web traffic from Facebook following the algorithm changes, conservative sites saw a loss of traffic averaging around 14 percent.

‘Totalitarian impulse’ of the left

President Trump’s 2020 campaign manager charged last week the giants of Silicon Valley are stifling free speech, particularly conservative speech, manifesting the “inherent totalitarian impulse” of the left.

On Friday, Facebook appeared to be “shadow banning” the non-profit education site PragerU, founded by talk-host Dennis Prager, causing a drop in engagement of 99.9999 percent while removing two videos regarded as “hate speech.”

After Facebook rejected a highly inspirational ad for a Republican congressional candidate that included images depicting her parents’ persecution under the Khmer Rouge communist regime in Cambodia, Twitter followed up with its own ban.

WND reported earlier this month Facebook banned a pro-life video ad by a judicial candidate, giving the same explanation.

On Aug. 6,  WND reported, Facebook, YouTube and Apple banned commentator Alex Jones and his Infowars website within hours of each other.

Last month, WND reported moderate Muslims and counter-terrorist activists were increasingly being restricted by Silicon Valley, while terrorist content remains on social-media platforms, according to researchers.

Trump campaign chief Parscale said last week the banning of Jones “will inevitably lead to the silencing of those with far less controversial opinions.”

“What we are seeing in Big Tech is the inherent totalitarian impulse of the Left come into full focus,” Parscale said.

ELITIST GEORGE SOROS’ MOST CONCERNING INVESTMENTS: NETFLIX, GOOGLE, & MORE

Source: Collective Evolution

Full disclosure: I’m a huge fan of Netflix. I’ve been watching numerous Netflix-produced shows and movies lately, and I’m starting to notice more and more of them have consciousness rooted within them. However, I’ve also noticed some seriously strange forms of propaganda showing up on their platform. This got me thinking: Who funds Netflix?

Infamous investor and businessman George Soros reported at the end of 2015 that he owns 317,534 Netflix shares, which has an estimated worth of $32.79 million. If you’ve never heard of Soros, he is a key member of the elite, or the shadow government, disguised as a philanthropic billionaire. And Netflix isn’t his only concerning investment — he also holds shares in Google and numerous non-profits.

Who Is George Soros?

George Soros’ current net worth is $23 billion. After selling his company, Soros Fund Management, in 2000, he’s been focusing on his “humanitarian efforts” through his philanthropic Open Society Foundations (OSF). Soros started making strategic political donations to essentially fund revolutions in different European countries and made a fortune amidst the chaos. He also made a killing off European forced migration and other colour revolutions.

Anonymous targeted Soros for his link to the conflict in the Ukraine, as he was partially responsible for the Western-led coup that overthrew the democratically elected government of Ukraine.

Soros is well-known for financing and donating heavily to “left” groups, as he played a hand in creating the Black Lives Matter and Women’s March movements. Don’t get me wrong — I’m a strong advocate for equality and am happy to see people supporting one another. However, Soros’ investments in anti-discrimination movements seem to be politically driven, intent on stirring up conflict.

He’s also played a vital role in many of the lawsuits against Trump’s newest policies (not that I support many of them, at all). The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) started filing lawsuits against Trump’s executive orders, and ever since then their donations have skyrocketed, totalling over $24 million in one weekend, which is approximately six times the organization’s average annual donations. Soros’s Open Society Institute has donated over $35 million to the ACLU alone and millions more to other liberal organizations willing to file lawsuits against the Trump administration’s policies. Read more about that in our CE article here.

He also uses OSF to funnel money into Media Matters, which directly contributes to mainstream media outlets such as NBC and the New York Times, so he plays a role in manipulating MSM and the way in which politics is reported. You can read more about his previous investments in our CE articlehere.

George Soros’ Investments in Netflix and Google

So, why would he buy into Netflix and Google? Well, Google is a pretty safe investment, since it controls some of the world’s best technologies and our access to knowledge and information. Earlier this month, Google announced one of its latest technologies, “Cross Check,” which will supposedly help identify fake news. I wonder if this will actually be the case, or if this will be a similar situation to the Snopes and Facebook censorship. It’s easy to imagine how this form of censorship would benefit Soros.

Netflix, on the other hand, was a relatively questionable investment to make at the end of 2015. Although the stock price had seen an upswing of 20% over the course of a month at the time, Netflix’s entire business model was so innovative that it couldn’t really be considered a “sure thing.”

Nevertheless, Soros decided to invest millions into Netflix, a decision that paid off big time. Netflix announced that the company turned over $8.29 billion from streaming alone in 2016, which is a 35.2% increase from 2015.

The question here is: How much control does he get over what the company produces? The answer very well could be none. However, after Netflix released the documentary The White Helmets, I began to question that. Disguised as an incredible tale of real-life heroes saving innocent Syrian civilians, the film ended up being pure propaganda.

The group’s acting skills turned out to be far more impressive than their humanitarian efforts. They have been caught falsifying photographs, recycling footage of children, and literally faking scenes of them saving “civilians,” forcing one to wonder if the movie was even a documentary at all, or entirely staged.

Furthermore, the group is heavily funded by the U.S., the UK, and other countries in Europe, despite the fact that they deny accepting funding from any interested parties. It’s clear that the U.S. has vested interests in the Syrian war, since they’re selling arms to both the terrorist groups and non-terrorists.

The White Helmets also claim to be neutral and unarmed, which is far from the truth. As independent journalist Vanessa Beeley explains, “If we look at their claims to be neutral, they are embedded entirely in terrorist-held areas whether it is predominantly Al-Nusra Front or ISIS or any of the various associated brigades of terrorists that take their command very much from Al-Nusra Front, that is where White Helmets are exclusively.”

Beeley continues, “They’ve been filmed participating and facilitating an execution of a civilian in Aleppo. They post celebratory videos to their social media pages of the execution of civilian Arab soldiers.”

So, Netflix has most North Americans thinking that the White Helmets are a group of heroic, peaceful knights saving Syrians, when in reality they’ve been referred to as terrorists themselves, and even a “shadow government” — represented by the U.S., the UK, and other countries — in the making. You can read more about the White Helmets in our CE article here.

If you’re familiar with the details of Soros’ role in the Ukraine conflict, all of this seems extremely questionable. Why would Netflix voluntarily create a documentary spreading propaganda? Well, I’m not sure why Netflix would, but it’s easier to envision why Soros would.

Mainstream media tends to demonize Russia in regards to the Syrian war, which is exactly what Soros would want. You could say that Soros has a long-standing grudge against Russia, in part because they kicked out Soros’ company, OSF.

“It was found that the activity of the Open Society Foundations and the Open Society Institute Assistance Foundation represents a threat to the foundations of the constitutional system of the Russian Federation and the security of the state,” a translated version of a Russian press statementread.

Soros has been extremely outspoken on Russia’s crimes against humanity in Syria, even though some of those news stories were falsified. You can also read a document here that includes notes from an OSF meeting about Russia that was released in the DC Leaks.

Netflix also got a ton of backlash regarding their upcoming series Dear White People. The title sort of says it all: It’s an attempt to provide insight into racial segregation, even though the title itself promotes separatism. There’s no telling if Soros was involved in any way, but perhaps he would’ve supported it since it has his infamous “activism that actually promotes separatism” branding all over it.

Soros’ investments here could be well-intended, but given his vast history of profiting off chaos, it’s easy to imagine him having an ulterior motive or a hidden agenda. Regardless of his intentions, I encourage you to always think critically about what you’re looking at. It’s difficult to distinguish what is fake news and what isn’t, so it’s crucial that we don’t just take things at face value anymore. Most importantly, follow your intuition, and learn to trust it!
