Recently, I became interested in just how Bernie Sanders was able to square his logic regarding his endorsing the basing of the F-35 fighter bomber in Burlington, while professing he is against “bloated and wasteful Defense Department” spending. This led me to search his FaceBook pages on “Bernie Sanders’ FaceBook page”, and also, on “Friends of Bernie Sanders FaceBook page” for any questions which pertained, in particular, to the problems of Burlington residents, and the basing of the F-35 at their local airport. It was with some astonishment that I discovered that he is in fact censoring those questions, and this is how he does it:
When entering a question in the ‘Open Post Box’ at the top of the page, where it says ‘Write Something’, with any subject that contained the terms ‘F-35’, or ‘Lockheed Martin’, the resultant question that you believe you have posted will be seen by you as being up on the site. However, this is not the case. You are seeing, what is in fact, your own page, not the page that others will see. You will be led to believe that your question will be out on the Web for all to peruse and to comment on. But that will be a false belief. As part of my job I maintain a number of computers at different sites, and while updating a machine, used by someone else, I happened to look at Sanders’ FB page while I was working. It was then I noticed that a question I believed that I had recently posted, which was observable from my own machine, was not visible on the account of the person whose machine I was updating. To confirm this finding I created a dummy account and watched the behavior of the site to questions I attempted to post with my own machine which were quite obviously censored; since, while on the FaceBook site, they appeared on my own account, but were quite obviously not visible to the dummy account.
This, it appears, is how Bernie Sanders is dealing with the worries and concerns of his constituents, by presenting a false image of just who, and how many, may be concerned about such issues, while not being absolutely clear and honest about why he has decided to endorse such a project. It also appears that if this is the case, Senator Bernie Sander is obviously more interested in the advertisement of himself to acquire votes than in the wellbeing of his constituents?
One of our supporters brought this to our attention recently. Thanks all, keep it coming. Note, we contacted Bernie's tech staff for their response to this and they didn't get back to us.
