BLP Exclusive: Faith Goldy Responds to Facebook, Instagram Bans

Goldy was deemed a “Dangerous Individual.”

Published

Monday, a Canadian right-wing reporter and activist was banned from the world’s largest social network, along with its smaller subsidiary.

“Facebook, without any warning to me, has informed Canada’s state journalists that they consider me to be a ‘Dangerous Individual,'” Faith Goldy told Big League Politics. 

“What a farce! I’m a 29-year-old Canadian girl who loves my country and makes videos citing statistics from my kitchen table,” she continued. “If enemies of nationalism consider little ol’ me to be a threat, it shows you how weak their arguments really are. Newsflash: Ideas took countries and whole continents by storm long before Instagram models and Facebook likes were a thing.”

Goldy was banned from Instagram, too, which is owned by Facebook.

She also implored President Donald J. Trump to step in and regulate big tech, which has garnered a reputation for censoring conservatives.

“That said, it sure would be nice to see Donald Trump regulate these censorious companies sometime before 2020 because this sure ain’t what the free market looks like, Chief!” Goldy said.

Goldy had some thoughts on the Communications and Decency Act, specifically Section 230, which protects Facebook and other tech giants from lawsuits by users. An update to this law could help protect users from big tech tyranny. She said:

Facebook is racist. Mark. Zuckerberg discriminates. Instagram and Facebook, under Zuckerberg’s leadership, perpetuate systemic racism against whites who celebrate the merits of Western Civilization.

And CDA 230 protects Zuckerberg’s racism.

When a tech giant like Facebook bans a user, they are in effect acting as user themselves — but they are users which also curate their own content — and should therefore be able to be sued.

Currently CDA 230 protects sites like Facebook from being sued even though they are curating their own content. When they ban opinions they don’t like, and eject users who haven’t violated their TOS, they are engaging in defamatory conduct, as well as tortious interference.

Users who are substantively injured by Facebook and Instagram should be able to sue those platforms for reputational damage.

Goldy is in good company. Nearly every effective difference-maker in the conservative world has been censored in one way or another. Radio show host Alex Jones was banned from nearly every major tech platform. Right-wing commentator Gavin McInnes was banned from Twitter, along with activist and Big League Politics contributor Laura Loomer.

Facebook Runs Electoral Interference to Stop Surging Congressional Candidate Laura Loomer

Facebook’s discriminatory practices against Loomer may be illegal.

Published

on

Congressional candidate Laura Loomer has dominated fundraising numbers and is crushing the polls, but Big Tech is intervening in an attempt to halt her campaign’s momentum.

Loomer announced on free speech platform Gab that Facebook is banning her campaign ads in what could be considered a form of electoral interference.

“This newest ban goes beyond just a ban of the Laura Loomer For Congress Facebook Page (which is required to run ads). My campaign was told yesterday that if a PAC attempted to advertise to promote my campaign, their ads would be taken down. Facebook said their new policy is that nothing about Laura Loomer is permitted on Facebook and for the duration of the election cycle, my campaign will not get access to run any of our own ads,” Loomer wrote.

“People will be banned for simply typing my name “Laura Loomer”. We have received several reports today from supporters who said their pages were suspended because the posted my donation link and my ads!” she added.

Loomer said in a statement provided to different media outlets that this should be considered criminal electoral interference because her primary competitor, incumbent Democrat Lois Frankel, is allowed to publish ads on Facebook’s vast monopoly platform.

“I’m the only federal candidate in the nation banned from advertising on Facebook. My competitor, Lois Frankel is running ads on Facebook to reach voters, and my campaign is shut out. This is illegal election interference,” Loomer said.

“If the idea of banning Lois Frankel from advertising on Facebook outrages you, you should be equally outraged over the fact that my campaign is universally de-platformed and is being denied equal access to run ads on Facebook,” she added.

Loomer is currently suing Facebook and other tech giants due to her arbitrary removal from the platform, as Big League Politics has reported:

According to Allum Bokhari of Breitbart, Facebook has demanded a federal judge in Miami to immediately dismiss a defamation lawsuit that Laura Loomer brought against them.

Facebook put forward the argument that its decision to ban her as a “dangerous individual” does not fall under the grounds of defamation.

Facebook filed a motion to dismiss where it argued that “calling someone ‘dangerous’— or saying that she ‘promoted or ‘engaged’ in ‘hate’— is a protected statement of opinion.”

Facebook called attention to how other platforms have banned her and stated that “this is clearly an issue where, at a minimum, reasonable minds can disagree.”

Additionally, the motion cited Loomer’s appearances with Gavin McInnes, another individual that Facebook labeled as “dangerous”, as a justification for deplatforming her.

Breitbart News exclusively revealed a year ago that Facebook takes into account off-site behavior to determine whether certain users get deplatformed.

Bokhari noted that Facebook engages in the monitoring of “the on-platform and off-platform activities of prominent political individuals in an internal file called ‘Hate Agent policy review’.”

Loomer aims to become the next U.S. Representative in Florida’s 21st Congressional district in spite of the Big Tech conspiracy gunning for her.
