Washington Post reporter shed crocodile tears after one new policy

Legacy institutions have worked hard to serve as political gatekeepers.

Their reach has extended into Big Tech.

And a Washington Post reporter shed crocodile tears after one new policy.

Taylor Lorenz of The Washington Post has made a name for herself by doxxing (revealing names and private contact information) and calling for censorship of her political opponents.

Lorenz famously targeted popular online account Libs of TikTok for destruction, but her hit piece backfired.

Libs of TikTok, which mainly reposts public videos of unhinged leftists in their own words, grew in popularity after Lorenz exposed her identity.

Mark Zuckerberg creating new rules?

After years of calling for censorship, journalist Lorenz is furious at a new online policy.

Meta—parent company of Facebook, Instagram, and Threads—announced that it would be limiting algorithmic exposure of political content.

Users still have the choice to “opt-in” to politics if they want.

Conservatives, libertarians, and a handful of counter-narrative leftists have been getting censored for years while people like Lorenz served as cheerleaders.

But now that their establishment narrative is being dulled, at least on the surface, they are freaking out.

The left-wing outrage mob absolutely hates it when they have to eat their own words.

Lorenz wrote a piece in The Washington Post about Facebook’s decision, and she fell back on the classic left-wing technique of offering up “marginalized” groups as a shield.

She wrote, “The decision has alarmed users who post about social issues, including LGBTQ rights, women’s rights, racial inequality and disability. And independent journalists and content creators say they’ve struggled to reach their audiences in recent weeks since the change was rolled out. The limits, they say, have significantly affected creators who are Black, female, disabled and LGBTQ.”

Leftists always hide behind identity groups for moral cover because they think they can get away with it. 

Letter to Meta

Lorenz signed onto a letter with dozens of other left-wing content creators dismayed at Meta’s decision.

They wrote, “As users of Meta’s platforms, we did not choose to automatically opt-out of receiving suggested political content on civic activism and news updates. . .Removing political recommendations as a default setting, and consequently stopping people from seeing suggested political content poses a serious threat to political engagement, education, and activism.”

So communities are being “threat[ened]” if they are not automatically spoon-fed left-wing political content.

These are the same people that have called for right-wing content to be shut down for years because it foments “hate” and “misinformation” and “disinformation.”

Their hypocrisy is on display for the whole word to see. 

The Left are twisting themselves in knots to explain why censoring the Right is good, but censoring the Left is bad.

The common saying that if it wasn’t for double standards the left would have no standards at all comes to mind. 

So far, their justifications have fallen flat.

Perhaps they should be more careful of what they wish for.
