Pinterest Adds Itself to Big Tech Censorship – Project Veritas
Pinterest is the latest Big Tech social media to delve into the murky world of censorship. They listed “LiveAction.org” as a porn site, when it is actually a pro-life site. They actually blocked it from being found, according to Project Veritas. And that’s not all they did:
After Project Veritas published their finding, it took less than 48 hours to cause an uproar at Pinterest.
In 48 hours @Pinterest has:— Project Veritas (@Project_Veritas) June 11, 2019
– Removed @LiveAction from the porn domain block list
– Added them back on to the list
– Permanently BANNED their account
– Sent a statement to Veritas that neglects to refute our findings
– FIRED our Pinterest insider
PART 2 coming soon. #lifecensored pic.twitter.com/4rN0H9lcBM
Think about this for a minute: Pinterest is a SCRAPBOOKING social media site. It’s for posting pictures, or recipes, etc. One employee actually states that she didn’t think LiveAction should be allowed on their site. They also don’t like Christians, Bible verses, or Ben Shapiro, and fail to “auto-complete” any entries that attempt to attach to those terms. They actually engage in hiding materials from persons conducting searches, according to the insider.
UPDATE 3: A Pinterest spokesperson has provided a statement in response to our request for comment: “Religious content is allowed on Pinterest, and many people use our service to search for and save Pins inspired by their beliefs. To protect our users from being targeted based on personal characteristics such as their religion, we have policies in place so that ads and recommendations don’t appear alongside certain terms.”Project Veritas
Which was a whole lot of algorithmic mumbo-jumbo. The fact is that Pinterest, – like other social media- slips Conservative sites in with all the bad actors so they can justify their actions. It’s how Facebook was able to purge over 800 Conservative pages last year, and how they continue to purge sites they disagree with even now.
“Project Veritas reviewed the list of websites from the “porn domain block list” and was able to confirm that along with LiveAction.org, websites like zerohedge.com, pjmedia.com, teaparty.org and other various conservative websites were also listed. The majority of the document lists pornographic websites.”Breitbart
The left-leaning employees of BigTech are becoming more and more aggressive in destroying freedom of speech simply because they disagree with the stand.
Another document Project Veritas reviewed shows code that reads, “mem add [‘liveaction.org’].” The insider explains that this code, which according to the document was committed to the “porn domain block list” on February 13th, 2019, added LiveAction.org to the block list. The code was apparently committed by Megan McClellan who works on Pinterest’s Trust and Safety team.
On May 29th, 2019, Ginet Girmay, a Pinterest employee on the company’s Trust and Safety team, discusses LiveAction.org’s inclusion on the “porn domain block list.” Girmay says “I do not think [LiveAction.org] should be removed…” even though Pinterest “is not currently removing pro-life/pro-choice content.”Project Veritas
“Trust and Safety Team.” Sure. Alt-Left censorship team is more accurate.
So Pinterest fired the whistleblower, aka “insider.” Is Pinterest just a neutral platform where people are supposed to be “Safe” from harmful things? Or are they a publisher with an agenda that does not include ordinary Americans? Project Veritas has another installment coming, so stay tuned. You can find them at www.ProjectVeritas.com
