Facebook isn’t just banning Groups and Pages anymore.
The social networking behemoth announced Thursday it has banned several high-profile accounts for violating the platform’s rules against dangerous individuals and organizations.
wasn't Alex Jones banned from Fakebook like a year ago?
I love how anyone right of Stalin is "far-right"
1 Alex Jones is actually insane and off his meds.
2 Social media is now the public square and banning anyone should have to go through a public process to do so.
3 If society decides that theses companies sould have the right to ban whoever they want, there needs to be a publicly funded alternative that has all of the capabilities of these platforms, like messaging, video hosting, group forming etc.
Assuming that Rachel Maddow was also banned for peddling bogus conspiracy theories and hate speach. Who am I kidding, the MadCow is protected with a blanket of Liberal Privilege?
Seems their policies are against free speech.
1984 is upon us. shutting down free speech is always pure evil
Now you know why there are so many ‘right wingers’ on sites like this lol
New phone, what’s Facebook?
I don’t like the idea of anybody “editing” who I can and can’t watch or listen to— pardon the preposition. That includes nut jobs. I’ll be the judge thank you very much.
"Hatespeech" isn't real
apparently Louis Farrakhan is now right wing 😂
To be honest I'm not a fan but all this banning this and wiping away the memory of that and holding a person responsible for something relativity benign however distasteful they did 20, 30, 50 years ago or more is not what productive people do.
You mean they went against the forever changing ToS?
Facebook is shit...can't believe anyone still uses it
In other news, apparently Islamist, anti semite (but I repeat myself,) and black supremacist Louis Farrakhan is a right winger now. Yet more evidence that totalitarian leftists think their vision of the annointed can never be tyrannical and that conservative = evil.
goodbye free speech
Reading comments at the NYT gave me cancer. Don't go there guys, there's a whole bunch of people claiming arbitrary censorship is the best thing that could ever happen.
Kikebook hates free speech.
