Promoting Freedom in an Authoritarian nation

Facebook and the will to protect paid propaganda tools

We recently highlighted the fact that a known agitator, Andrew Spooner, not only posts highly vitrolic and inflamatory Tweets about anyone he percieves to be an opponent, he also proclaims to be objective and ‘keeper of the Truth’. His styl is that what he writes and represents is Truisms and anyone opposing them are evil and bad.

Not then mentioning that his own wife for example was the translator for R. Amsterdam during his last visit to Thailand. R. Amsterdam is known as the disrepruted propaganda and PR lawyer for hire – now hired by Thaksin to shew the western publics view of the events.

So with his wife clearly in bed with the organisation around a political criminal and his hired goons he tries to pretend he is objective and not at all running the arrends of Thaksin? We don’t buy it Mr. Spooner.

But highlighting this in some Facebook posts didn’t go down well with the machinery behind Spooner. They manage to get posts removed from Facebook walls, without notice to writers nor wall-owners, not once but several times.

Imagine the backroom-dealings that goes on for a big corporation to pretend that posts containing specific info mysteriously suffers random deletes hours after they are posted, and no other posts?

And this is the little icy tip that reveils just how big this money-machine that Thaksin wields really is and the amount of influence the propaganda-firms he operates has to their disposal.

Resist the oppression, resist the PR machinery, resist the oppression, resist the censorship.

  1. Are you for real? Thanks for providing laughs though with your incoherent reasoning and paranoid argument ^-^

    • While you state that posts talking about, even in minor detail, about R. Amsterdam and A. Spooner, the paid merchants of propaganda for Thaksin, has now been deleted 4 times. One of the posts merely linked to this page even. Without notice. From our wall.

  2. Sounds like you have an issue with FB rather than A. Spooner.

    • The issue is with the organization behind the criminal fugitive co-opting the flawed ‘review’ process that FB employes. That FB should have a big scoop of the criticism was implied, our apologies for not being overtly clear on this.
