The Masters of the Universe at Facebook have banned multiple conservative personalities from both Facebook and Instagram, including Infowars host Alex Jones, Paul Joseph Watson, Laura Loomer, and Milo Yiannopoulos.
Tucker Carlson opened tonight’s show about Facebook’s latest purge. President Trump tweeted about it earlier tonight. We’re not going to shut up, we’re only going to get louder every time Big Tech tries to silence conservatives under the bogus disguise of “hate speech.”
It’s not just that Alex Jones can’t have an account. Now YOU can’t have an account if you share posts from Alex Jones.
Facebook has deplatformed those they consider ‘dangerous extremists.’ Hamas, Hezbollah, and PFLP fan pages still cool.
How are we going to address the issues of rape gangs and church desecrations and terror plots and homecoming Islamic State terrorists if every time anyone tries to discuss them on social media, Silicon Valley decides to close them down for being racist or Islamophobic?
It’s a shame so many mainstream conservatives are such pussies. They stand by silent about the censorship of social media stars who have more influence and fans than they could dream of not because they don’t agree with some of the things they say or do, but because they’re envious about their influence.
CNN is an extremist hate group. But they are not banned. Not yet.
Snoop Dogg understands the principle of freedom of speech better than 90% of journalists. That’s how bad the situation is.
“How the fuck y’all gonna ban Minister Louis Farrakhan for putting the truth out there?” Snoop asked in a separate video. “I stand with him. I’m with him. Ban me, motherfucker.”
Let’s call out what Facebook is doing for what it is: fascism. It is abusing its extraordinary global power as a publishing platform used by more than 2 billion people in order to impose on all of us its totalitarian leftist new world order.
It justifies its fascistic behavior by pretending it is protecting the world from “hate.”
A Facebook spokesperson has claimed:
“We’ve always banned individuals or organizations that promote or engage in violence and hate, regardless of ideology. The process for evaluating potential violators is extensive and it is what led us to our decision to remove these accounts today.”
But today violence and hate are almost overwhelmingly the preserve of the angry, aggressive, radical left, not the playful, irreverent, meme-generating right.
While Antifa are busily laying into Trump supporters with bicycle locks and punching conservatives because, hey, anyone to the right of Bernie Sanders is a “Nazi,” their opponents are fighting back with facts and logic and arguments and wit and jokes.
Take Paul Joseph Watson — one of the victims of Facebook’s latest censorship drive. What Paul Joseph Watson does is make what he calls “meme videos laughing at Social Justice Warriors.”
For these crimes he has now had his Facebook account permanently erased.
As Watson says on his latest video — ‘My final ever video?’ — “this is totally political.”
“This is nothing less than election meddling. Everyone Facebook has banned was instrumental in getting Trump elected. This is punishment. This is a political purge. This has nothing to do with ‘hate’ or ‘violating terms of service.’”
Perhaps the most terrifying threats to civilised political discourse today are the asymmetric standards of behavior between those on the left and those on the right. Though the left loves to seize on every scrap of opportunity it can — the senseless murder of MP Jo Cox, for example, by a loner with serious mental health issues; the largely misreported events at Charlottesville — to promote the narrative that the “far right” is on the march.
This is pure projection. It’s the Social Justice Warriors of the radical left and their allies in Big Government, from the Maduro regime in Venezuela to the increasingly brutal Macron presidency in France, who are promulgating and enacting most of the hate and violence.
Facebook is not doing anything meaningful to stop hate and violence. “Hate” is term so nebulous — its meaning so entirely dependent on the mindset of the beholder, and so debased by cry-bully progressives — that it cannot reasonably be used as any kind of objective criterion for a censorship policy.
“Violence” is — or at least was, till the left cynically redefined it in order to expand its potential number of victimhood categories — a physical act and therefore quite beyond the proper purview of a site dedicated to words and images.
Facebook is Big Brother.
