According to an anonymous former Facebook insider who conducted a meeting with the New York Post following the tech giant's decision to team with Twitter to suppress the Post's unfolding bombshell Hunter Biden reporting, things within the Facebook workplace are anything but fair and balanced.

"Facebook is almost an arm of the Democratic Party — an arm of the far-left wing of the Democratic Party," the former insider admitted, explaining that staffers there are, "intentionally trying to swing people further to the left."

Multiple Facebook employees were quoted in the story, saying:

  • "Why do people hate Facebook everywhere? Here's one reason. Freaking one-sided decision. The comms Twitter account [Andy Stone's] was definitely left-leaning, and it's a talking point, as well. No proper response to comms feedback. Don't want to be the what-if person. But we didn't have problems circulating leaked Trump tax or any other s--- surrounding Trump or COVID."
  • "[Facebook] employees want Trump to lose...If that means rigging [the platform] against him, they don't care."
  • "I was shocked that Facebook did this...We kinda called [brought] this on ourselves. So much for ‘we are not the arbiters of truth.'"
  • "We're now begging to be regulated."

The Facebook insider went on to express their doubts that any change will come to the social media giant, explaining that it is run by "super-woke millennials and gen-Xers" intent on preserving their ideological domination at the structural level.

"If you're left-wing, you can say what you want," the insider remarked. "But if you're conservative — or even just apolitical — you have to go on this anonymous app [to voice opinions.]"
