Facebook has partnered with the Atlantic Council, whose members include arch-globalists like Henry Kissinger and Dina Powell, to “protect free and fair elections around the world.”
Facebook announced earlier today that the Atlantic Council will provide it with “real-time insights and updates on emerging threats and disinformation campaigns from around the world.”
In other words, Facebook will trust a globalist think-tank to distinguish “disinformation” from the spin and sloganeering that characterize virtually all democratic elections. …
To cite just one example, the Atlantic Council has branded Hungary’s anti-globalist Prime Minister, Viktor Orbán, as a “far-right autocrat” who runs a “quasi-authoritarian regime that bears little semblance to the democracy that allowed its accession to the EU and NATO”. The Council described Orbán’s recent landslide victory in the Hungarian elections as a “rallying cry for action” for “western democracies” to “protect and defend … democratic values.”
Authoritarians who cozy up to the globalist agenda don’t get as harsh a treatment. The same Atlantic Council that condemned Orbán’s victory hosted Turkey’s President Erdogan, whose government recently invaded and occupied an independent Kurdish region in Syria, at their international summit in Istanbul last year.
