Milo, Alex Jones, PJW banned by Facebook

Facebook's most recent banning binge is a little ironic in light of how they wouldn't let me delete my account, so I had to settle for deactivating it last year.
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."
Build your own platform. That is the only solution. And, of course, make the rubble bounce.

Ahaahahahah! hahah! right? haha!
I await with bated breath until Anti-Fa members/sympathizers, such as some of my relatives, have their Facebook accounts closed. Come on, Facebook... follow your own rules!

"Facebook banned me for calling Josh a jew. and it wasn't even used as an insult."

Jew-noticing is ALWAYS a though-crime. Because jewgolds.
Or something.

Blogger Colin Flaherty's baby momma May 02, 2019 3:33 PM  

Do jews not realize their suppression causes even more people to hate jews?

Or do jews know they are guilty on all charges, that they are in more danger when people are able to communicate and share information freely?
It's all over for jews as soon as people have access to Truth.
When people start doubting their Narrative, asking questions, examining evidence, researching how it happened and who is responsible, who has been conspiring to malevolently deceive and exploit our nations, who is at the root of all subversive perverse filth being promulgated throughout society, ... then they are in big trouble.

Which is why they are not entirely wrong to believe speech and feelings are criminal violence, because to a jew Truth is death.

They cannot refute any of the proofs, so they create labels and diversions and pathologies to discredit and dismiss anyone bringing facts to light. Also yes, they murder/assassinate people all the time, by false-flag proxy if possible.

You can permanently delete your Facebook account. I deleted mine last year. There’s info on how to do it online. I had mine deactivated for about 2 years before finally figuring out how to permenantly delete it.

The info was spread everywhere when the news came out about facebook spying on users. It takes about 2 weeks for the deletion to occur so just don’t log back into your account when you request deletion.

Facebook seems to prefer deactivation as opposed to deletion. I would speculate Facebook still counts deactivated accounts in their user totals even though they aren’t active.

I had a fun encounter with Facebook recently. I posted a link that stated the CDC admits that immigration, not non-vaccinated people, are the cause of the rise in measles.

I got a notification from them that this was fake news as well as a link from them that said the opposite.

Didn't get banned and my post wasn't deleted (as far as I can tell, though it is probably rabbit-holed).

So not only is Facebook saying the CDC is fake news, but they are trying to correct me of my bad-think.

Blogger James Pyrich May 02, 2019 3:57 PM  

What's really funny about this move by Facebook is that Louis Farrakhan can effectively claim that he is being included with Alex Jones and Milo as a Token Black Man offered as a Sacrificial Lamb so that Facebook can appear "balanced."

Ergo:

They didn't have a problem with Farrakhan until they needed to use him to get rid of somebody else they didn't like!!

If you do, don't forget to go into your browser cache and delete all Facebook related cookies. Web sites can include javascript that contacts FB for buttons and what not, and that javascript includes information from FB related cookies still in your cache.
Same goes for Instagram, if you un-subscribe from there make sure you delete all cookies related to the site.

Is the inability to be discrete - that is to say the need to know what everyone's doing and thinking at all times, and the need to share what you are doing with everyone you know at all times - is this a trait of the lower SSH orders, or just a 21st century societal norm?

Blogger wahr01 May 02, 2019 9:42 PM  

Anti-trust law is already on the books, and Trump could wield it against not only Silicon Valley but against the payment processors as well.

In fact, the case against the payment processors is pretty much open and shut.

Further, There are recent decisions against Trump Himself which could be weaponized to force these companies to bend the knee.

He, his staff, and his inner circle remain conspicuously silent.

I think they are doing exactly that. This is the first round trial balloon and if we have learned anything about their behavior they make a move like this, let the dust settle and then ratchet up. This is phase 1 of their 2020 election strategy. Next on the list will be people slightly more mainstream like Jack Posobiec, Cernovich etc. probably 3-4 months from now. A month before the election it will be the bigger names like Tucker Carlson. Big-tech calculate that they can influence the election. When the candidate they support wins, they will call in the favor to get them out of any litigation. We have already seen the corruption at the local prosecutor level with the Smollett case. Think they don't have connections with civil court judges as well?

The only answer is to build alternative platforms, while doing everything we can to get the message out that the traditional tech sites are no longer the cutting edge. "All the cool/smart/beautiful people are using XYZ.com now" etc.

No, it's not a "first round"

The "first round" was milo, we're now on round 9 or 10

With each round, not one finger has been lifted by anyone with the power to stop it, and this includes Trump, who could weaponize the DOJ's OCR, Anti-Trust, and various other divisions to make doing business utter hell for these companies.
