Nothing speaks of how screwed up our society is than when a man can film himself raping a baby and then distribute the images on Facebook with no repercussions from Facebook. Brice Gage Watkins is accused of doing just that and has been arrested by the U.S. Marshals after he was found hiding out in an associate’s home in Texas. Watkins, who posted the lewd images and distributed them via Facebook Messenger, is, as of right now, allowed to keep his Facebook page.
His most recent public posting was on July 11, where he can be seen in disgusting homosexual acts with another man. We will not link to it, if you want to see it, you can search it out yourself. The comments under his most recent posting, however, are encouraging that at least most people believe this scumbag should fry.
It’s baffling that Facebook has allowed his page to remain while, on the other hand, the media giant banned Kyle Rittenhouse from Facebook after he shot three people in self-defense during a riot in Kenosha, WI.
An editorial at the Wallstreet Journal put it best:
The social-media giant seems to have declared Kyle Rittenhouse’s fatal shooting of two people amid riots in Kenosha, Wis., a mass murder. Mr. Rittenhouse’s lawyer says his client was attacked and acted in self-defense, but Facebook has banned any “praise and support” for him on the site, including links to contribute to his legal representation. Searches for his name on the platform also come up empty.
Facebook claims to be a champion of free speech, yet the social media giant consistently blocks conservative opinions and bans right-wing accounts. Facebook relentlessly censors support for the First and Second Amendments, bans public debate that challenges the status quo, and invalidates any dissenting opinion that they have single-handedly deemed to be “false information” under the guise of “fact checking.”
Facebook, the largest medium for public communication in the world, has more monopolistic power to regulate speech — especially during a time of lockdown — than any government in the world, including the U.S. That they would deem Kyle Rittenhouse worthy of being banned but allow a baby rapist to remain active after distributing his videos on their platform speaks volumes of just how much trouble we’re in as a society.
