On May 24, a group of Facebook whistleblowers, including ex-employees, filed a complaint with the Securities and Exchange Commission, alleging that not only is child pornography distributed on the social media behemoth, but those who run Facebook are very much aware of it and do nothing to stop it.
The Washington Post reported: “The ex-moderator, whose job was to track graphic content in private Facebook groups, claims that if moderators saw discussions about illicit payments for illegal goods, such as child pornography or illegal narcotics, they had no way to warn executives running Facebook Pay, the system that lets users send and receive money across the main social network, Messenger, Instagram, and WhatsApp.
“’There were groups where pornographic content related to children was auctioned. And they used [Facebook] systems [for] all of it, from what I could see,’ the ex-moderator wrote in a sworn statement.”
As an observer of Facebook’s practices, this comes as no surprise. In fact, several illegal aliens have been caught distributing child pornography on Facebook. For instance:
- On May 14, 2020, Collier County (FL) sheriff’s deputies arrested Luis Fernando Garcia-Perez, 21, and charged him with 100 counts of possession of child pornography and one count of possession of child pornography with intent to promote. This occurred after receiving a tip from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, that he was using Facebook to distribute the material.
- On January 9, 2020, police served a search warrant at the home of Francisco Medina Chavez, 39, in Fontana, California, and discovered more than 1,500 child pornography images and videos. Under questioning, Chavez admitted to using Facebook, WhatsApp and other social media platforms to receive and distribute child pornography.
- In August 2018, Sedwin Osmel-Vasquez Carrillo, 28, and Elder Rene Carrillo-Cruz, 26, were arrested by the Kentucky State Police, after an undercover investigation revealed that the pair of illegal aliens were using Facebook Messenger to share child pornographic images.
The pair were charged with possession or viewing of matter portraying a sexual performance by a minor and distribution of matter portraying a sexual performance by a minor. Upon questioning, both Carrillo-Cruz and Carrillo admitted to distributing child pornography.
Of course, many of us are now very familiar with Facebook’s so-called “community standards” and being put into what is commonly referred to as “Facebook jail,” or perhaps, having your page deleted altogether, when one “violates” these standards.
However, this seems somehow to only apply to conservative or anti-illegal immigration pages.
Obviously, these “community standards” are purely political, and are nothing more than a way of censoring conservatives and basically anyone who wants the rule of law restored to this nation.
However, you would likely think that the distribution of child pornography would be a “violation” of Facebook’s “community standards,” regardless of where one stands politically. But you would be wrong.
Disturbingly, many of Carrillo’s photos include himself surrounded by children.
