The Latest Q-Anon Conspiracy is Already Falling Apart at the Seams
These guys won’t quit. Q-Anon and their infinite brain trust have started floating that Facebook whistleblower Frances Haugen was planted within the company to expose it because she is a pro-censorship shill for, I don’t know? Big redaction? These guys are hard to keep up with sometimes. Earlier this week, tweets and videos started to emerge claiming Haugen was part of a “psy-op.” That’s QAnon’s favourite term for anyone doing anything they don’t do. In their feeble little brains, the entire world is a screen adaptation of a shitty Tom Clancy novel. You’ll notice I said movie because none of these piles has ever picked up an actual book. Lee here thinks the entire world is out to get him and his boring life.
Ha she ain’t no whistle blower. She’s a plant to get more censorship.

Not surprisingly, there are many problems with the Q-uacker Factory Theory. That’s my favourite part. The infighting. I picture a cave filled with knuckle-dragging mouth-breathers grunting at each other and flinging feces when they argue. Let’s start with the one thing they already can’t agree on. Was she planted by Facebook, or was she planted there by the Government?
Facebook Planned This to Soft-Sell CEnsorship
If she was planted by Facebook, that’s one hell of an expensive way to “sell censorship to the users.”
A viral image circulating on social media baselessly claimed that former Facebook employee Frances Haugen, who turned over troves of internal company documents to the Wall Street Journal, was not a real whistleblower, but a plant set up by Facebook itself.https://t.co/VUjucn8BtM

Zuckerberg lost ~$7b if you recall when the 60 Minutes piece aired. They are a private company that could change their operation at any time without the need to sacrifice a loss of that magnitude.
Facebook shares are rising Friday, though not by enough to prevent what's set to be the social-media company’s longest streak of weekly losses since the pandemic began https://t.co/6yNQ49ibZr via @technology @RyanVlastelica @jwittenstein

She was put there by the US Government
The other theory is Frances Haugen is some sort of US Government spy. Here’s where it becomes my favourite one to report on. There is nothing I love more than good old-fashioned American exceptionalism. So, the US Department of Social Media Censorship and Internet Police (lolz) created a verifiable backstory for an agent who has a detailed history of record spanning pre-Facebook and sent her in to do what? Expose Facebook to make them censor everyone? Everyone? I’m sure Russia is right on board, with China a close second to jump in and listen to what America’s internet equivalent of Nancy Drew is going to tell them to do. One thing those Q-uackheads are is patriotic to a blinding fault. Nothing exists other than Trump and America and their 4.25% of the worlds fucking population.
Facebook 'whistleblower' should be looked at very warily by the Right. She has deep ties to far left causes and pols. Possibly a plant to trip up conservatives. https://t.co/ukfaqAslEx

So, who is Frances Haugen? She’s a boring, white tech nerd from Iowa. Seriously. Don’t get me wrong. I think she did an incredibly bad-ass thing and really stepped up here for the greater good of humanity. But, she’s not a Bond character. As boring as your life may be, making up false narratives for others doesn’t make them real. It makes you a Dollarama Brand Walt Disney. From her website:
Born in Iowa City, Iowa, Frances is the daughter of two professors and grew up attending the Iowa caucuses with her parents, instilling a strong sense of pride in democracy and responsibility for civic participation.
Frances holds a degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering from Olin College and a MBA from Harvard. She is a specialist in algorithmic product management, having worked on ranking algorithms at Google, Pinterest, Yelp and Facebook. She was recruited to Facebook to be the lead Product Manager on the Civic Misinformation team, which dealt with issues related to democracy and misinformation, and later also worked on counter-espionage.
During her time at Facebook, Frances became increasingly alarmed by the choices the company makes prioritizing their own profits over public safety and putting people’s lives at risk. As a last resort and at great personal risk, Frances made the courageous decision to blow the whistle on Facebook.
Frances fundamentally believes that the problems we are facing today with social media are solvable. We can have social media that brings out the best in humanity.
It’s no wonder these Q losers made up a story about her. I can barely get through her bio without an upper. But, that’s exactly what this world needs. Boring nerds to make sure we don’t all kill each other off. From vaccine researchers, to the Dr. Tam’s to the legislation authors to the Facebook techies that try to do the right thing. They aren’t the “deep state” enemy just because you don’t understand what they do. These folks do what they do to keep humanity upright and retaining fluids. At the end of the day, they deserve our thanks and support.
We started The Sheeple Shepherd Podcast to debunk shit like this. I thought we were going to get pigeon-holed into only Covid crap. These idiots have given us material for months. Thanks, Q-uacker Jacks!
