If you needed any more evidence that we’re living in a police state, here it is. From Tyler Durden at zerohedge.com: According to Department of Justice whistleblowers, Facebook has been spying on Americans’ private messages and reporting them to the FBI if they express ‘anti-government or anti-authority’ statements – including questioning the legitimacy of the 2020 U.S. election.
As the New York Post‘s Miranda Devine writes, “Under the FBI collaboration operation, somebody at Facebook red-flagged these supposedly subversive private messages over the past 19 months and transmitted them in redacted form to the domestic terrorism operational unit at FBI headquarters in Washington, DC, without a subpoena.”
“It was done outside the legal process and without probable cause,” said one of the whistleblowers, who spoke on condition of anonymity. “Facebook provides the FBI with private conversations which are protected by the First Amendment without any subpoena.”

The same happens in Jacindaland — in 2019 she demanded that Facebook allow two teams of about 40 people each under her control to monitor everything that NZers put on it, and one can be sure the details go into her politicised police force’s database.
