So the state prosecutor, the driving force of the states prosecution case against me wasn’t able to be at court today to hear the result, due to being on holiday lol.— Roy (@Nexus6000000) December 18, 2019

Also, half the seats in the court room have been removed, halving the capacity of the room, denying access to any more than 12 of my supporters.— Roy (@Nexus6000000) December 19, 2019

It is Big Tech that has become Big Brother.
“Facebook and Instagram will no longer allow influencers to promote vaping, tobacco products or weapons on its platforms using “branded content.”
Instagram announced Wednesday it would no longer allow “branded content” that promotes those goods on either platform. In June, Instagram a change that would let advertisers promote posts from influencers, or users who work with brands to promote services or products. Users see a “paid partnership with” tag on a post when viewing that branded content on Instagram.
This change closes a loophole in Facebook’s advertising policies. Even though Facebook’s ad policies have banned the advertising of vaping, tobacco and weapons, private users can post about them, and until now advertisers could theoretically put paid promotion behind those posts. …”
“Facebook and Instagram already ban ads for guns and e-cigarettes, but now they’re shutting down a loophole that let merchants pitch the products regardless. The social networks have announced that they’re banning “branded content” (read: influencer posting) that promotes weapons, tobacco and vaping. You’ll also see “special restrictions” on posts that market products like alcohol and diet supplements.
Enforcement for the new rules should take effect in the “coming weeks,” Facebook said. It’s also working on tools to help creators honor the new policy, such as setting minimum age requirements or their content. …”
Big Tech now decides what you can say about politics on its platforms, who can use payment processors, who is blacklisted from social media, whose books can be sold online and now it is expanding its regulation of tobacco products, vaping and guns. It now wields more power over our lives than the federal government and it is totally unaccountable.
Solution? More tax cuts and deregulation!
