Joe Biden beat a hasty retreat.
Biden’s handlers instantly knew they had a problem on their hands.
And then Joe Biden stood up and issued one apology that no one saw coming.
After a speech about the economy Joe Biden walked back his smear from Friday that Facebook was killing people with misinformation about the coronavirus vaccine.
Biden clarified by referencing an enemies list of 12 accounts supposedly generating all this “misinformation” that Biden demanded Facebook censor.
“Facebook isn’t killing people. These 12 people are out there giving misinformation, anyone listening to it is getting hurt by it,” Biden told reporters. “It’s killing people. It’s bad information.”
Before departing for a weekend at Camp David, Biden blamed Facebook for his administration missing its stated goal of 70 percent of American adults receiving at least one dose of the coronavirus vaccine by July 4.
“They’re killing people,” Biden ranted. “I mean, they’re really – Look, the only pandemic we have is among the unvaccinated. And they’re killing people.”
Biden has staked his Presidency on the response to the coronavirus, so the Biden administration needs a scapegoat to avoid suffering a political blow that could cripple Democrats’ chances in the 2024 election.
Facebook claims it’s following Biden’s directive and censoring “misinformation” about the coronavirus vaccine.
But Biden claims the platform is doing nothing.
“To be completely honest with you, I don’t know that they did anything today, up to over the weekend, I don’t think they had. But I don’t know,” Biden added.
Many fear that Biden and the Democrats real goal in pressuring Facebook to delete posts about the coronavirus under the guise of stopping the spread of “misinformation” is a dry run for their plan to censor all conservative speech heading into the 2022 and 2024 elections.
Democrats will claim that every Republican campaign ad or attack is “misinformation” that is throwing the legitimacy of the election in doubt and lean on their ideological allies in Silicon Valley to eliminate the ability of conservatives to communicate with Americans during the election.
