Rumble, a Canadian video hosting service that has grown to be a haven for the conservative and far-right, has launched a last-ditch effort: it is now seeking out more diverse (read: fewer alt-right) individuals to join the site and “question the current quo” in their own unique ways.
The two individuals they have most prominently hired are dissident journalist Glenn Greenwald and former representative Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI). Then came a variety of self-described edgy commenters, including media and Twitter critics Shant Mesrobian and Zaid Jilani, news parodyist Bridget Petasy, satirist Matt Orfalea, Washington Examiner writer Siraj Hashmi, self-described troll Mujahed Kobbe, and writer Siraj Hashmi.
Influence Of The U.S. Government
However, it is doubtful that the U.S. government, particularly Democrats, have any influence over Facebook’s decisions. If anything, Zuck gave in to anti-censorship conservatives during the Trump administration, but he has made it clear through years of requests to remove Trump’s misinformation.
That he is the one who makes the final decision. Facebook and Twitter frequently changed their policies to take into account Trump’s misinformation and calls for murder, even nuclear war. Rumble, oddly enough, does not permit criticism of one platform: its own.

The left despises him (particularly Facebook) for failing to put out a forest fire of misinformation, while the right despises him for what they believe to be an anti-conservative bias. Everyone despises monopolies, save from those who accept campaign donations.
However, the notion that the US government, particularly Democrats, has any influence over Facebook’s decisions is dubious. If anything, during the Trump administration, Zuck caved in to anti-censorship conservatives.

but he has made it abundantly clear over the course of years of pleading to stop Trump’s misinformation that he is the one making the final decisions. Facebook and Twitter have repeatedly changed their policies to take into account Trump’s falsehoods and calls for murder, including the possibility of nuclear war.
Rumble, oddly enough, forbids criticism of only one platform: itself. Creators are permitted to discuss Rumble in their films, but according to the Terms of Service, forum commenters are not permitted to disparage him.
