A former Facebook insider recently came forward to admit that the social media giant used the H-1B visa program to bring these Chinese nationals on as employees, recognizing their communist brainwashing as an ideal qualification for the program.
Because communist China knows how to churn out authoritarian loyalists perhaps better than any other nation in the world, Facebook knew that this was the place to go for the "talent" it sought.
Most of the communist Chinese worker drones who maintain Facebook's "Hate-Speech Engineering" program work at the platform's Seattle office. Many have PhDs and know how to develop artificial intelligence (AI)-driven machine learning technologies that "learn and act without being explicitly programmed."
In other words, Facebook's communist Chinese H-1B employees are experts in developing the AI censorship programs that Big Tech is now using to abolish the First Amendment rights of Americans.
Facebook's News Feed prioritization algorithms are also programmed by communist Chinese workers who are "teaching" the system how to put "wrongthink" content at the bottom of the list.
Machine learning algorithms and neural networks process people's News Feed content to determine "the ranking of items," the whistleblower revealed. Teams of Facebook engineers then analyze the various iterations that are produced to identify the optimal outcome.
The ultimate goal, the whistleblower added, is to root out "borderline content" that Facebook would rather users not be allowed to access or share.

In the end, Facebook is hoping to achieve the most sophisticated censorship mechanism on the planet. And it may have already done that, at least as far as current technology allows.
"What they don't do is ban a specific pro-Trump hashtag," the ex-insider is quoted as saying. Instead, he says, "content that is a little too conservative, they will down-rank. You can't tell it's censored."
While it is not necessarily out of the ordinary for tech companies to hire foreign nationals from places like China and India, the presence of Chinese nationals on Facebook's censorship programming teams is chilling, to say the least.
Are these individuals simply doing a job in an effort to share in the American Dream, or are they working on behalf of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) to destroy American sovereignty by eliminating online free speech? Perhaps it is a little bit of both?
Another concern is what these individuals working for Facebook are relaying back to the mother ship. Is Xi Jinping being given a play-by-play about the inner workings of Facebook, including the massive amounts of data it is harvesting from its users?
Responding to criticisms about the company's choice of employees, a Facebook spokesperson stated that having communist Chinese nationals on its team makes for a "stronger company because our employees come from all over the world."
"Our standards and policies are public, including about our third-party fact-checking program, and designed to apply equally to content across the political spectrum," the spokesperson explained.
"With over 35,000 people working on safety and security issues at Facebook, the insinuation that these employees have an outsized influence on our broader policies or technology is absurd."
Sens. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) and Josh Hawley (R-Mo.) both contend that Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act (CDA) needs to be immediately repealed, eliminating the immunity protections that Facebook and other tech giants are unfairly receiving.
"This is all the more reason for the Senate to demand that Mark Zuckerberg – under oath and before the election – give an account of what Facebook has been up to," Hawley is quoted as saying. Well, that didn't happen and look how the election turned out. Just imagine what's next.
