Twitter has not only blocked the Rev. Louis Farrakhan from posting temporarily, it has also added more rules to its hate speech policies. The social media company announced a new update in a July 9 blog post that banned “dehumanizing language” against others “on the basis of religion.”
Facebook’s policy for posting content that called for violence used to be straightforward: don’t do it. Now, there are exceptions. According to an updated version of Facebook’s Community Standards, calls for “high-severity violence” may not be posted, unless the victim in question is “an organization or individual covered in the Dangerous Individuals and Organizations policy.”
Hate preacher Louis Farrakhan and his Nation of Islam organization’s pages were deplatformed from Facebook on May 2 during its purge of “hate speech.” While most remain banished, Facebook strangely has allowed one dedicated to Farrakhan and “Black Supremacy” to return from the grave.
Big Tech always preaches about treating people equally, but they never do. Funny how their “algorithms” never seem to suspend liberals’ accounts. The religion of Inclusion is a fraud. As I write this, my organization’s Twitter account (@LifeHasPurpose) has been suspended for 15 days for violating their cardinal rule—don’t tweet the truth.
Facebook banned Rev. Louis Farrakhan for his rampant anti-Semitism. So how come the video of him speaking about “Satanic Jews” is still live on the platform? The leader of the Nation of Islam spoke in front of an audience at the Catholic Church of St. Sabina in Chicago.
CNN is ready to push Big Tech into banning President Donald Trump -- as a “dangerous” person. Facebook and Instagram banned six individuals and all links to conspiracy website InfoWars as “dangerous” last week.
On Friday morning, as the networks informed viewers that Facebook has banned several controversial political groups and individuals from having an account, ABC, CBS, NBC, and MSNBC all failed to inform viewers that Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan has been tied to the left, even while the same shows made a point of using terms like "far-right" to describe others affected by the ban.
Despite the Washington Post making this same blunder yesterday and facing backlash for it, CNN went ahead and labeled Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan as a “far right” extremist Friday morning. New Day host Alisyn Camerota lumped Farrakhan in with alt-right conspiracy theorists who were banned by Facebook this week for their extreme rhetoric.
Instagram and its parent company Facebook have purged several what it called “extremist” figures ranging from controversial Jewish activist Laura Loomer to anti-Semitic hate preacher Rev. Louis Farrakhan. In the latest round of tech bans, Facebook and Instagram have deplatformed conspiracy theorist Alex Jones, Infowars, Milo Yiannopoulos, Paul Joseph Watson, Loomer and Farrakhan.
Social media has been consistently banning people based on liberal complaints. But when it bans someone championed by liberal Hollywood and the Democrats, suddenly everyone becomes a free-speech advocate.
The liberal media are forever vigilant about racism and anti-Semitism among the "white nationalists," but go very soft when hateful anti-Semite Louis Farrakhan of the Nation of Islam surfaces at public events. On Thursday, Farrakhan was invited to speak at a memorial service for the rapper Nipsey Hussle, and "mainstream" media outlets either skipped right over it, or noted it without criticism. CNN included Farrakhan in articles titled "The stars align for Nipsey Hussle."
Special interest groups are abandoning the annual Women’s March in droves. The National Council of Jewish Women, Emily’s List and most recently, The Southern Poverty Law Center have all cut ties with the March. Will Hollywood be next? Actresses Debra Messing and Alyssa Milano, both far-left activists, denounced the Women’s March late last year after initially embracing the movement. Neither is an A-list star.
