Why is the FBI Singling Out LinkedIn When Discussing Chinese Threat?

In prepared  remarks on Threats Posed By the Chinese Government, on  January 31, 2022, at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library, FBI Director Christopher Wray took the unusual step of calling out LinkedIn saying:  “Now, as an aside, I would be remiss if I didn’t note that we see an awful lot of Chinese intelligence outreach on social media, especially on #LinkedIn”

Why is it that FBI Christopher Wray was compelled to single out #LinkedIn and not Social Media, Mainstream Media or the White House? Is it because 76% of LinkedIn’s users are outside the U.S.? or because 59.9% of LinkedIn’s users are between 25 and 34 years old? Perhaps because while the U.S. is LinkedIn’s biggest market at 174M users, the network has gained traction around the world.? What about the fact that 57% of LinkedIn users are men, and 43% are women or that Bill Gates penned 50% of the 10 most engaging LinkedIn articles in November 2020 or the fact that, Gates often appears in the list of most engaging articles shared monthly in the LinkedIn Water Cooler Series? Because Gates has been more vocal about COVID than Dr. Faucci: Gates in fact thinks that Climate Change can be worse than COVID-19“I realize that it’s hard to think about a problem like climate change right now. When disaster strikes, it is human nature to worry only about meeting our most immediate needs, especially when the disaster is as bad as COVID-19” Gates write. Gates has also spoken about depopulation to the point that Gates’ apologists claimed that he really did not mean to say: “The world today has 6.8 billion people,” .. That’s headed up to about 9 billion. Now, if we do a really great job on new vaccines, health care, reproductive health services, we could lower that by perhaps 10 or 15 percent.” Gates has failed to condemn Black Genocide, where millions of preborns are killed, mostly African American. Or Perhaps because Microsoft owns LinkedIn? You see, last year, Microsoft’s Bing suspended auto suggest function in China at government’s behest.

Yet Pew Research found that most people have multiple social media accounts. 90% of LinkedIn users, for example, use Facebook. 94% use YouTube, while 57% use Instagram.  While Edison  found that 64% of whites in the US use LinkedIn more than 16% of Hispanics. African Americans were at 6% while others were at 14%.  But Wray  fails to mention Tweeter, Facebook, Google. Consider that 1000s of Google employees walked out to protest the company working with the US government, but the same people  remained apathetic as Google continues to do work with companies which directly benefits the Chinese Communist

According to Pew Research a small number of prolific Twitter users, mostly Democrat try to drown out the majority. They conscientiously use misinformation to promote their agenda. 70% or more of these falsehoods are likely to be retweeted:  the bigger the cognitive dissonance, the more retweets.

As if that was not enough 52% of adults get their news on #Facebook, while 87% of #Twitter users also use Facebook.  Twitter promotes Silo building then uses flags as a safety measure and or call to action. 

Typical Twitter flag

The Wall Street Editorial Board writes:  “It’s been clear for some time that the tech giants look to government to determine what coronavirus-related speech to allow. YouTube’s misinformation policy bans content that contradicts the evolving guidance of “health authorities.” Facebook stopped blocking some commentary on the lab-leak theory of the virus’s origins only after President Biden ordered an investigation into the possibility. Public-private coordination is not in itself sinister. The government can be an important source of information, and most people would agree that it’s not an abuse of Facebook’s authority to suppress, say, fraudulent medical advice that goes viral.n ordered an investigation into the possibility.” Yet, while Twitter has banned President Trump for life, it continues to allows totalitarian regime representatives, such as Chinese Government Spokesperson Lijian Zhao @zlj517 even though he blamed the CIA for planting the COVID-19 virus

Meanwhile according to whistleblower Frances Haugen, Facebook monetizes hate and division. We also know that Facebook fact-checkers are not checking facts but promoting an agenda.  And of course, there is Facebook and the rest of Big Tech censoring news items that do not fit their agenda such as this one. “On Thursday, Facebook decided its users should not be able to share a New York Post article about the property-buying habits of one of the founders of Black Lives Matter” Or  as the Posts’s Devine wrote:  “In case there was any doubt that Facebook and Twitter are corruptly partisan, the social media giants censored The Post’s story Wednesday on Hunter Biden’s emails suggesting he took cash for access to his ­father, Joe Biden.”  A typical excuse for this gross abuse of power, or online censorship is  that “legal expert agree, its no illegal.”   You may recall that killing Jews in Nazi Germany was legal.

Then there’s the deep political connection.  Senator Diane Feinstein had a Chinese spy on her employ for twenty five years, while Fang Fang targeted California Politicians, including representative Eric Swalwell & Barbara Boxer. Senator Ted Cruz told Sunday Morning Futures  Maria Bartiromo ” ‘The Democratic Party today is funded by Big Tech and giant corporations which are in bed with Chinese communists’”

So why is it the FBI took the unusual steps of calling out LinkedIn?
