Facebook blocks new events around DC and state capitols

As a precaution against coordinated violence ahead of Joe Biden’s inauguration, Facebook announced new measures. The company said that it would block any events slated to happen near the White House, the U.S. Capitol or any state capitol building through Wednesday. Facebook will apparently also be putting new restrictions in place for US users who repeatedly break the rules.

But Kim Jung and ANTIFA is still on Facebook... Proving once and for all that this has nothing to do with perceived violence and everything to do with political positioning

How very surprising that they're doing this now but didn't do anything when the democrats mobs were festering outside the White House back in May and tried to get President Trump murdered.

This is not Facebook's job. Either allow everyone to speak or no-one. Provided the speech does not violate any laws.

I keep hearing this “BLM is burning down cities” trope which is weird when estimates of the damage done over the course of the ENTIRE movement are between 1-2Bil (and there’s some some cases currently being investigated that showed undercover police or far-right people instigating/causing some of this) but for arguments sake let’s assume this was 100% done by the BLM participants. This is dwarfed by the roughly 250Mil-300Mil paid out by misconduct settlements paid out by the NYPD every single year, and that’s literally in only 1 city. I couldn’t find an exact amount of how much police settlements cost tax payers on average cumulatively across the US but something tells me it’s a slightly bigger problem than the BLM protests. On a side note, the sensitive, triggered snowflakes that make that claim are ironically the same people who whine about the news “dividing us” and fear mongering. But hey, that’s the feels over reals party afterall.

And they reckon people won't just use codenames as dissident groups have used for pretty much all of the history of civilisation.

I very much doubt, given the level the number of guard, any will turn up. It is one thing to use your weapon against a kid with a packet of skittles but an armed soldier might make them think twice.

By blocking everything, people will simply use other means and FB and others won't even know about it. Makes the spying so much harder.

I’m sure glad they didn’t do this when cities across the country were burning.
