Titled ‘We Have a Problem With Political Diversity,’ it quickly took off inside the social network,” Kate Conger and Sheera Frenkel report for The New York Times. “We are a political monoculture that’s intolerant of different views,” senior Facebook engineer Brian Amerige wrote in the post.
It must be hell to work at Facebook if you are not a dogmatic leftist robot.

Despite the increased chatter about Facebook’s autocratic speech policies, things have not gotten better. In fact, they have gotten worse. Like most totalitarians, the leftists dig in, secure in their absolute power. They continue to steamroll over our most basic freedoms. In the past two weeks, I have been suspended twice — and any of my readers who shared this post were suspended as well.

We need government intervention and we need these employees subpoenaed.
