Facebook Bans InfoWars, But Allows Antifa, BLM, and Farrakhan Continue to Spew "Hate" Speech
Facebook’s explanation for the InfoWars ban claims that the site posts material which “glorifies violence,” and also uses “dehumanizing language.”
But the social media Masters of the Universe have made no attempt to explain why InfoWars should be banned while leftist pages with a
far more explicit glorification of violence, not to mention using “dehumanizing” language towards Jews, Christians, and Americans in general, should remain and even prosper on the platform.
is one such prominent Antifa page. Beyond featuring violent imagery of President Donald Trump being attacked, it includes training and information on attacking critical infrastructure targets. “It’s Going Down” seems to be lower on Facebook’s list of “glorying violence” than InfoWars.
Infamous anti-Semite and Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan also remains on the platform, with nearly one million likes, while , a progressive news outlet, remains despite its founder Cenk Uygur’s of the Armenian Holocaust.
The New Black Panther Party, a black supremacist organization, which to the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) has “encouraged violence against whites, Jews, and law enforcement officers,” also has on the social network.
It does not even require fresh transparency of Facebook’s murky rules around “hate speech,” “glorifying violence,” and “dehumanizing language,” to recognize that if InfoWars does not belong on Facebook, neither do these pages. By Facebook’s own treatment of InfoWars, one could make a reasonable argument that anti-white bigot Sarah Jeong, who to white people as “goblins,” is a perfect example of leftists using “dehumanizing language.”
