CrossFit Boycotts Facebook Ban

Today the popular workout and diet program CrossFit announced its decision to discontinue all use of Facebook after one of its affiliate groups, which had over 1.65 million users in its Facebook group, was banned from the platform without explanation.

After the Banting7DayMealPlan Facebook group was banned without explanation, CrossFit announced its decision to end all use of both Facebook and Instagram in an apparent boycott.

According to CrossFit, the group was used by over 1.65 million users to share advice, testimonials, and provide encouragement to users pursuing the CrossFit health plan.

Recently, Facebook deleted without warning or explanation the Banting7DayMealPlan user group. The group has 1.65 million users who post testimonials and other information regarding the efficacy of a low-carbohydrate, high-fat diet. While the site has subsequently been reinstated (also without warning or explanation), Facebook’s action should give any serious person reason to pause, especially those of us engaged in activities contrary to prevailing opinion.

Facebook and its properties host and oversee a significant share of the marketplace of public thought. To millions of individuals and communities across the world, Facebook and its properties remain the platforms where ideas and information are exchanged. Facebook thus serves as a de facto authority over the public square, arbitrating a worldwide exchange of information as well as overseeing the security of the individuals and communities who entrust their ideas, work, and private data to this platform. This mandates a certain responsibility and assurance of good faith, transparency, and due process.

The fitness organization offered several specific complaints against Facebook. They take issue with Facebook collecting user information and providing it to government officials, specifically in the “massive citizen surveillance” program “such as PRISM,” its frequent censorship of “user accounts based on unknown criteria” and its decision to create a news feed that is “censored and crafted to reflect the political leanings of Facebook’s utopian socialists,” while still “remaining vulnerable to misinformation campaigns”.

Then, specifically, they say that Facebook is meddling in the “food and beverage industry”:

Facebook is acting in the service of food and beverage industry interests by deleting the accounts of communities that have identified the corrupted nutritional science responsible for unchecked global chronic disease. In this, it follows the practices of Wikipedia and other private platforms that host public content but retain the ability to remove or silence—without the opportunity for real debate or appeal—information and perspectives outside a narrow scope of belief or thought. In this case, the approved perspective has resulted in the deaths of millions through preventable diseases. Facebook is thus complicit in the global chronic disease crisis.

Earlier this month Facebook and Instagram banned several prominent right wing media figures, including Alex Jones, Paul Joseph Watson, Milo Yiannopoulos, and Laura Loomer. Facebook is going even further with its ban of Jones, and may ban any Facebook or Instagram user who posts videos or links to videos of Jones’ TV and radio show.

#GOBALDFORBLM: 4Chan Dupes White Women Into Becoming Skinheads to Show ‘Solidarity’ with Black Women

A hilarious troll.

Published

The trolling collective at 4Chan has struck pay dirt yet again, this time with a troll job duping white female allies of Black Lives Matter to shave their heads.

“Get #goBaldforBLM trending on Twitter and Instagram,” the 4Chan post reads. “The idea is to get women, particularly white women, to shave their heads for BLM. Guilt them into getting rid of their straight “white” hair to show “solidarity” with black women.”

This ridiculous idea took off immediately and the hashtag was trending on Twitter as of Friday.

This may be 4Chan’s best work since convincing the world that the “OK” symbol was a gesture promoting white supremacy.

That troll job was so effective that people have had their lives ruined by ravenous jackals, enabled by the anti-American leftist Anti-Defamation League (ADL), for flashing the innocuous symbol.

Big League Politics has reported on 4Chan’s success in exposing the stupidity and the evil of the Left:

The ADL, a left-wing special interest group that pushes for Big Brother censorship on social media and the destruction of the Bill of Rights, recently entered the ‘OK’ hand gesture and the bowl-style haircut to their ever-expanding hate symbols database. They now classify those symbols next to burning crosses, Nazi swastikas, and Klan robes.

“Even as extremists continue to use symbols that may be years or decades old, they regularly create new symbols, memes and slogans to express their hateful sentiments,” ADL CEO Jonathan Greenblatt said in a statement.

The ADL is regularly patrolling websites like 4chan, 8chan and Reddit for memes that they find offensive, and then classifying them as hate symbols. Orwell’s henchmen have made the arbitrary determination that the ‘OK’ symbol and the bowlcut now qualify as certified wrongthink.

“At this point, there is enough of a volume of use for hateful purposes that we felt it was important to add,” said Oren Segal, who is the director of the ADL’s Center on Extremism, referring to the ‘OK’ symbol.

While the ADL’s hate symbols database may seem laughable, this organization’s hysterics have real-life consequences. Digital lynch mobs, aided by the fake news media, now target random individuals who are seen gesturing the ‘OK’ symbol in public.

One such example from earlier in the year saw a man who was caught using the ‘OK’ symbol at a Chicago Cubs game, and then regarded as a white supremacist and banned from attending games.

Right-wing trolls are serving an important role in the public discourse, forcing the hands of the leftist enemies of civilization to show exactly how idiotic they are.
