Double Standard of Pro-China Facebook & Twitter 親共面書、推特的雙重標準. By Chapman Chen, HKBNews

On November 27, Y.C. Shinichi Chen (陳奕齊) , Chair of pro-independence Taiwan Statebuilding Party(台灣基進黨), posted on his own Facebook wall a picture showing the throat of Chen Po-wei (陳柏惟), Statebuilding Party legislator, being locked by pro-China Chinese Nationalist Party (KMT) lawmaker Lin Wei-chou (林為洲) in the Legislative Council of Taiwan. Facebook then removed the picture for its "graphic" content. Shinichi Chen contrasted this with the fact that on Dec 1, Twitter rebuffed Australian calls to remove a fake photo posted by Chinese foreign ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian, showing an Australian soldier cutting an Afghan child's throat with a knife.

"In censoring our speeches, social media, Facebook and Twitter, have become the Ministry of Truth of Communist China. Which ones to block, which ones not to block, is all arbitrarily and dictatorially decided by them!" Shinichi Chen posted on his fb wall on Dec 2.

Similarly, Twitter and Facebook ban news of Hunter Biden's email scandal and label President Donald Trump's posts on voter fraud with warnings, but look the other way when it comes to fake news spread by the Fifty Cent Army of Communist China.

On Nov 27, in protest of the Taiwan government's decision to allow the import of US pork containing ractopamine, pro-CCP (Chinese Communist Party) Chinese Nationalist Party (KMT) legislators pelted Premier Su Tseng-chang (蘇貞昌) with pig skin and entrails; and one of them, Lin Wei-chou, even locked the throat of Chen Po-wei, as reported by mainstream media such as ET Today and Taiwan Times.

Chinese official Zhao Lijian infuriated Canberra on Monday when he posted a staged image of an Australian soldier holding a bloody knife to an Afghan child's throat. Twitter asserted it had marked the tweet as "sensitive", but added that comments on topical political issues or "foreign policy sabre-rattling" by official government accounts were by and large not in violation of its rules.
