Facebook approves death threats

Then quickly backtracks once saner minds had the chance to review the updated policy:
An update to the Facebook Community Standards which appeared to sanction calls to violence against “Dangerous Individuals and Organizations” identified by Facebook was quickly deleted amid public backlash.

On July 9th, Facebook changed its policy regarding “violence and incitement,” amending the policy to allow for “Calls for high-severity violence” against targets which have been identified as dangerous by Facebook itself:

“Do not post:

Threats that could lead to death (and other forms of high-severity violence) of any target(s), where threat is defined as any of the following:

– Statements of intent to commit high-severity violence

– Calls for high-severity violence (unless the target is an organisation or individual covered in the Dangerous Individuals and Organisations Policy)

– Including content where no target is specified but a symbol represents the target and/or includes a visual of an armament to represent violence

– Statements advocating for high-severity violence (unless the target is an organisation or individual covered in the Dangerous Individuals and Organisations Policy)

– Aspirational or conditional statements to commit high-severity violence (unless the target is an organisation or individual covered in the Dangerous Individuals and Organisations Policy”

The “dangerous individuals and organizations” policy concerns “terrorist activity,” “organized hate,” “mass or serial murder,” “human trafficking,” and “organized violence or criminal activity.” Under this updated policy, calls to violence could be incited against individuals such as Louis Farrakhan, Alex Jones, and Milo Yiannopolous, all of which were banned from Facebook for violating the policy.
I don't think there is much question that the SJWs who run converged sites like Facebook, Twitter, and Wikipedia would love to be able to publicly endorse death threats against the individuals they deplatform, but it appears that the lawyers have prevailed. For now.

It's interesting to see how they are showing their hand so clearly, though. This is all part of the developing weaponization of information that we've seen in attacks like the termination of the Alt-Hero:Q campaign that was seeded by NPR and Bleeding Cool and the deplatforming of the Rebel's Run movie by WeFunder that was seeded by The New Republic and Wikipedia.

It's only a matter of time before those media seedings, which are actually the informational equivalent of artillery spotting, lead to high-severity violence and fatalities on both sides. There will be war.

the deplatforming of the Rebel's Run movie by WeFunder

When did this happen? You just announced the movie a couple of days ago.

I have no problem telling leftist and others that few of my fellow Americans have a life or property worth defending.

Leftist are always obnoxious and like violence against those they disagree.

People often think Kurt Schlicter's portrayal of the shibboleths and actions of SJW'S in power in his fictional accounts of the breakup of the US are hyperbole. They are not. They are quite accurate portrayals of how sjw's think and how they act when they believe they can get away with it. Gamma commies on crack.

@ron that was previous funding platform which was not used due to sjw convergence. The mere mention of Vox's name made them squee and flee.

There is no way to vote ourselves out of this mess we are in. War in the West is the only way to put down the evil.

I only hope that we don't wait until it is too late and we are vastly outnumbered.

Being outnumbered by these idiots has one major advantage, they'll starve themselves to death like a horde of locusts trying to eat their way across the Sahara...

Blogger ZhukovG July 11, 2019 8:15 AM  

Fret not, SJW's; justice is coming. Like it or not, it's coming.

In a Globalist empire, it is the Nationalist that is the revolutionary.

As Nationalists, we are already outnumbered. But that is the nature of revolution. In the beginning the revolutionaries are generally outnumbered. But, it is the numbers at the end of the revolution that matter.

Attitude is more important than numbers. The revolutionary must be personally convinced, against all arguments to the contrary, that the revolution is destined to succeed. This is also why we must be ruthless in dealing with the defeatists and shills that pop up every time we get a bit of good news.

We have history, science and I believe God, on our side. I have no doubt in our ultimate victory.

If anyone thinks run-of-the-mill SJWs wouldn't countenance violence against right-wingers, I would refer him to Dan Harmon's rant about Nazis. He's not even a political leader, just the creator of a popular cartoon show. He says Nazis are 29% of Americans, so he means Trump voters. He said you don't talk to them, you don't try to change them, you just kill them. And the audience, which is not made up of antifa shock troops, just regular liberals who like his cartoon show, laughs and cheers.

They mean it. Some of them might not pull the trigger themselves out of squeamishness, but they'd be glad to encourage someone else do it. It's not a game.

Just a brilliant idea the left has to stir violence, since one half of the D-party is scared shitless of the other half of the D-party. For example my BIL typical white lib flaunts about like a sophisticate prattling on about Pete Buttplug this and that trying to sound smart lives in a half ass gated community because literally outside of it are D-party voters of color who are all gunned up and scare the shit out of him.

Please for god sake D-party get the ball rolling, a good start would be the Illinois state fair and the Snoop Dogg concert.

Facebook is to the narcissistic majority what heroin is to an addict: something they can't live without, even if they know it's toxic and will ultimately destroy them.

Getting the brainless proles hooked on the instruments on their own destruction has been part of the Establishment's long game since time immemorial (think: welfare, social security, and other government handouts, to name just two examples that come quickly to mind).

Liberals are "moderate Muslims" and Antifa are the Jihadist, they are only moderate in so much they are doing the violence themselves, but the approve of others doing it on their behalf because they are cowards.

How To Perma-Delete FaceBook in Three Easy Steps

To deactivate your Facebook account, follow these four steps:

>> Click the account menu down arrow at the top right of any Facebook page in your web browser.
>> Select ‘Settings’
>> Choose ‘General’ in the left column.
>> Click ‘Manage your account’
>> Press ‘Deactivate your account’, and then follow the steps to confirm your decision.

We are in a surveillance world, a digital panopticon. Even if you ditch your smartphone, Siri pods, and turn off our computer cameras and mic pickups, we are still being heard and seen by The Many Watchers, even where & when you least expect it.

Like Solzhenitsyn recounts of his time in prison, Christians need to cultivate their interior life by prayer, meditative prayer, and keeping parts & spaces in ourselves for peace and goodness and beauty and truth to indwell, by the Holy Spirit, to shut out the world for a time, and to be alive to God in a deadening world.

With Facebook in the mix, mankind is about to leap from organized violence to automated violence. As we've seen in Portland and other places, all Antifa needs is little encouragement and a false sense of impunity to get the party started. Throw in a few libras to cover expenses and watch your enemies burn in real time.

And when the time comes, who gives the orders is who you should be making your displeasure known to. Find out who those people are now, and where they live; it will be harder to do so when the festivities start.

“There is no way to vote ourselves out of this mess”

Cultural Revolution and gulags are core doctrine. Majority or not, killing opposition is what they dream of. They want to kill the unborn, and save the murderer from execution. There will be war. They are evil.

John 8:44 “Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.”

Blogger Damelon Brinn July 11, 2019 10:37 AM  

Why do the police always seem to side with the SJWs?

When Antifa went to Alabama, the police made them take off their masks according to the law, and they did a quick fade. As others have said, police follow orders. To a disturbing degree, really.

It seems like they're always siding with SJWs because SJWs only cause trouble in SJW strongholds where fellow SJWs give the orders. When they stray outside their strongholds and it doesn't go so well, the media doesn't tell you about it.

Blogger cecilhenry July 11, 2019 10:54 AM  

@35:

The police are NOT moral agents. Never have been.


They follow authority. Any authority that lets them execute authority.

They will obey orders from anyone in that cause.

That's the mindset of the police.


They will monitor websites for 'hate' as gladly as they will pursue street thieves.

All good.

“There will be war.”

Indeed. I’m almost finished with Ages of Discord. Reading it has made me wonder if we are heading towards another Civil War or rather towards the 1920’s style uprisings leading to some structural changes. I would imagine that Turchin will give his opinion by the end of the book. It certainly appears to be war. All of his proxies for measuring the political stress are off the charts.

I would still like to think though, that if we just banned all immigration, that we might be able to avoid another round of 600,000 dead. And we all know that the number of fatalities would be higher with a larger population and more lethal weapons.

The SJWs seek to classify speech as "violence", therefore "high-severity violence" would be actual violence.

Trump is a civnat. He wants the citizens of the empire to quit fussing and feuding and get back to being productive, so the ruling class can get back to milking them. He's willing to scold the ruling class and decimate the political class to restore peace and productivity. This is for the good of the empire and its rulers, not for the good of any one nation.

Trump isn't going to go ``bull moose'' because from the ruling class perspective there really isn't any difference between the imvaders and the American nationals who are being displaced. If he doesn't like this kind of talk, it's only because it makes us natives restless.

Diversity, in the police force and in the politicians who control their pensions. As Vox said, the police only obey orders, and their masters preferentially hire ones who will do it with enthusiasm. Bad pols mean bad orders and bad cops.

Field Marshal Zhukov is correct. The numbers are not as important as the morale of the forces.

A black swan that only touches the imaginary entries in the ledger can be dealt with. If interest payments eat up all tax revenues, they can adjust their ledgers and paper over it. A real world black swan will be a different matter.

Society used to be more patriotic, the change in "the police" is just a reflection of that. Like folks have said, they follow orders - that's their job. Would you want it any differently? "Here's a badge and a gun, go do what you want."

Sure, we'd like police to refuse to follow dyscivic orders, but when you're recruiting for a job who's primary requirement is the physical courage to wade into someone else's fight, adding "philosopher king" to the required skills list is going to restrict your talent pool a bit too much.
