Joe Scarborough spoke candidly about the current state of the Democrat party during his show Wednesday. He predicted the Republican Party will easily campaign against them on the basis of the border crisis and withdrawal from Afghanistan.

“Let’s talk about the mess right now that I think the Democrats are facing,” Scarborough said. Yet he tried to sound hopeful, pointing out that the next presidential election is still a year and a half away.

But if Democrats want to know what they’re going to be facing, let’s talk about it right now. Because if I were a Republican running, I would say, ‘Democrats can’t protect us across the world. Democrats can’t protect our street. And Democrats can’t protect us at the border.'”

Then, he admitted that his own network doesn’t sufficiently cover the border crisis. “There is — we don’t talk about it enough — there is a massive border crisis on the southern border right now,” Scarborough said. “And if Democrats don’t want to talk about it, that’s fine, it will find them over the next 16 months politically.”

“And then there’s this chaos in Afghanistan,” Scarborough said. While a majority of Americans were against keeping troops in Afghanistan, a similar majority disagreed with the way Biden withdrew them. “Democrats have to understand this is coming. And I don’t know where mission control is on the Democratic side, but somebody, Donny, needs to get that and they need to start responding.”

Facebook, Instagram Employees ‘Censor or Delete’ Protests against Iran

Iran President Rouhani

Former and current Facebook and Instagram employees are shedding light onto the “fact checkers” that are censoring vital content such as protests against Iran. “According to a report by BBC Persian, these employees admitted that at all levels of the company, the Iran regime’s influence has infiltrated, leaving biased and pro-regime content monitors to restrict, censor or delete posts about the current protests in Iran” reports The Foreign Desk.

Similar to censorship at the companies in the United States and elsewhere, the behavior is its own political movement. “The actions by these Iranian employees to remove images of the demonstrations in Iran and associated hashtags helps reinforce the Islamic Republic’s argument that the protests are not so widespread.”

According to one of the former employees who had his identity hidden for security purposes, told the BBC Persian in an interview from Germany, that the workers travel back and forth between Europe and Iran. “About 90 percent” of the decision making on censorship is done by these “fact checkers.”

“These are individuals who single-handedly take posts down. According to the source, employees are not allowed to have their personal cellular devices with them at their workstations, so these individuals go to the break room to report a post from their personal phones and then come back to their workstations and address the ‘complaint’ they just created.”

 

The Foreign Desk adds:

In 2019 TELUS International became the third-party company contracted with Instagram and Facebook to become their fact checkers and address complaints from users reporting posts for violent, hateful, or threatening material. 

A second source, a former TELUS employee, said approximately 400-500 Iranians work at the company in Germany, a country that is known to have diplomatic and bilateral relations with the Islamic Republic. 

The Islamic Republic has learned from the Green Revolution of 2009 to infiltrate Western social media outlets and their parent companies to control the narrative and prevent the international community from siding with anti-regime demonstrators.
