By banning them. Specifically, the following evil, white-washed, right-wing, Nazis have been thrown off Zuck’s spy site for good: Louis Farrakhan (black Muslim), Alex Jones (friend of Louis Farrakhan the black Muslim), and Milo Yiannopoulos (gay Jew).
Facebook announced Thursday afternoon that it had designated some high-profile people, including Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan, who’s notorious for using anti-Semitic language, and right-wing conspiracy theorist Alex Jones, as “dangerous” and said it will be purging them from its platforms.
Jones and his media outlet InfoWars had previously been banned from Facebook (FB) in in August 2018, but had maintained a presence on Instagram, which is owned by Facebook. On Thursday, Jones and InfoWars will be barred from Instagram as well.
Other people banned Thursday include fringe right-wing media personalities Laura Loomer, Milo Yiannopoulos and Paul Joseph Watson. Also included are Paul Nehlen, an anti-Semite who unsuccessfully ran for Congress in 2016 and 2018.
“We’ve always banned individuals or organizations that promote or engage in violence and hate, regardless of ideology,” a Facebook spokesperson said in a statement provided to CNN Business. “The process for evaluating potential violators is extensive and it is what led us to our decision to remove these accounts today.”
I need to call WP (much as I hate too) and see if there’s some way they can remove the little FB button from my posts. And, I’m going to request that MB stop promoting my TPC columns on FB (his call, totally). As for the newly banned, I say “Great!” No fan or supporter of either of these three men – or anyone with a triple-digit IQ – should have any connection to the Devil’s Anti-social Site. Consider yourselves honored, gentlemen.
