    I saw a recent YouTube about this story.about Facebook. It is pretty amazing.

    Facebook labels Declaration of Independence as ‘hate speech’
    The website told a local newspaper they violated its community guidelines by posting the original document

    “Fourth of July, the Liberty Country Vindicator, a small local newspaper in Texas, posted sections of the declaration of the independence to its Facebook page, in a bid to encourage discussion of US history among its readership.

    What must have seemed like a benign social media strategy managed to fall foul of Facebook’s algorithmic censors, which labeled sections of the declaration hate speech and removed the posts.

    Facebook alerted the Vindicator to let them know that the section of the declaration that includes a reference to “merciless Indian savages” was a violation of their community standards.

    The declaration’s passage has often been cited as an encapsulation of the dehumanising attitude toward indigenous Americans that the US was founded on. Facebook’s removal of the section arguably put the Vindicator in a position of whitewashing history.”

    I think the US is doomed if this is the type of nonsense we are faced with.

      I saw a story on this a couple of days ago as well, it really is unbelievable! Or I should say it should be unbelievable but nothing surprises me any more. Thanks for sharing this.

    The population looks more like a SS# 213,340,5057
    “Oppose” … just saw this the day about those who ‘oppose themselves’ (like we can be manipulated to be our own enemy): ‘In meekness instructing those that oppose themselves; if God peradventure will give them repentance to the acknowledging of the truth; And that they may recover themselves out of the snare of the devil, who are taken captive by him at his will.’ (I’ll let you find the source 🙂
    “Drkside” plates ~ the ‘beast within the human’. 🤔 notice his ties to the car.
    The ‘needing’ human ‘touch’ in the digital world. Today some proclaim that we ‘live in a “simulation”.’ Purporting the “no God” to contend with or consider teachings. It’s more ‘just an experience’ for spirits without bodies. Who or what does “that” remind you of?
    I’d heard that when the angels gave up their position in heaven, that they left the ‘shells’ of their bodies there. But, where in Scripture is that stated. Jude 6 tells us about those angels that ‘kept not their 1st estate & habitation (rank and residence). Reading on, speaks of humans giving themselves over to ‘strange flesh’, unbridled (unchaste) lusts, filthy [corrupt, muddled] dreamers defile the flesh, Brings to mind the transhumanism, dna manipulation and the statue with feet of clay and iron (just a thought). All those things that quality for the eternal ‘lake of fire.’ Maybe this ‘life experience’ for some really is: life is but a dream.
    I wonder how much $$$ it was to create the vid (graphics etc), probably significant.
    More info here how they made vid, plus lyrics:

      I caught the “Drkside” plate as well and a couple of other things. Interesting to tie it into the digital world and the lack of human interaction. Thanks for the link.

        Yes, they ‘make sue’ we ‘saw’ that, didn’t they. Pretty wild what they can do with graphics. Making it all seem so real. Brings to mind the ‘strong delusion’ concept and how things can appear to be something they really aren’t.

        They can do just about anything with graphics now and make it look real and you just know they are in more than just videos and movies…

    Wrong vs Right ~ Dark TO Light
    There’s man’s truth and there’s God’s Truth, when both are lived together, we move out of the ‘darkness’ into THE LIGHT.

      The difference is man’s truth is changeable or subjective whereas God’s truth is truth and it does not change. And that is what bothers them the most about it.

    Trying to #Restore America is a Battle, with much ‘resistance’ from those trying to ‘corrupt it’ even further down the pit hole.

      This guy nailed it, thanks for sharing. We can see what he is talking about happening right before our eyes and the thing is we warned people this would be next but we were laughed at.

        Part of the ‘belittling and ridicule’ evil uses.
        “And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die:”
        Imagine the beguiling ‘voice’ and ‘tone’ used in that statement. We hear that same spirit today.
