EXCLUSIVE: Infowars’ Facebook Link Ban Tied to ‘Hate Figure’ Designation of Gavin McInnes

The new information speaks volumes of how Facebook makes its decisions internally.



Facebook Gavin McInnes Infowars

In statements provided to Big League Politics, Facebook revealed that their decision to designate Alex Jones a “hate figure” was made, in part, because Jones interviewed Gavin McInnes on his broadcast and allegedly posted the interviews to Facebook.

When explaining their decision to name Jones a “hate figure”, Facebook told Big League Politics the decision was partially inspired by Jones interviewing McInnes, who founded the Proud Boys and co-founded VICE News.

According to Facebook, Jones interviewed McInnes twice and expressed positive sentiments of support toward him, which Facebook says is against the rules. Facebook says users are allowed to refer to McInnes, but may not express support for him or depict him positively. This is the reason many mainstream media sources are allowed to show video featuring McInnes and post articles with his statements and Infowars was not.

It is not clear from Facebook’s statement how Jones could have posted his interviews to Facebook, considering all official Infowars pages and Jones’s public figure page were already banned at the time. As Facebook will now ban any user who posts links or videos featuring Alex Jones or his broadcasts, they could have been referring to individual users posting links to the McInnes interviews.

Because of his designation as a “hate figure”, Jones has been permanently banned from Facebook and Instagram, and users who post links or videos featuring Jones may now be banned from the platforms as well.

McInnes is currently suing the Southern Poverty Law Center for designating him and the Proud Boys as hateful individuals, which he believes led to them being banned from social media and major financial systems. While Facebook says they do not map to the SPLC to determine who is a “hate figure” and who is not, they also explicitly refused to condemn the SPLC in a statement to Big League Politics, even after the SPLC took credit for Facebook’s decision to ban Jones, Paul Joseph Watson, Laura Loomer, and Milo Yiannopoulos.

Big League Politics reported:

The SPLC claimed last week that they put Facebook “under pressure” to ban the “dangerous” individuals from Facebook and Instagram, and heralded the move as “an important step for Facebook.”

In its article, the SPLC concluded that the organization “will continue to monitor how Facebook is enforcing its policies related to extremist content.”

Facebook replied to a request for a comment from Big League Politics, with a spokesperson writing in their statement that the company chooses to “speak with numerous organizations across the political spectrum to inform our policies,” and added that they use these conversations to “write and enforce our own policies” which they say are public knowledge.

The connection of McInnes to Jones in the statement provided by Facebook seems curious considering McInnes was first targeted by the SPLC.

It should also be noted that Facebook’s refusal to disavow the SPLC may represent a de facto endorsement of the culture of misogyny and racism present at the SPLC before multiple high ranking officials were fired or resigned.

Facebook Censors Project Veritas Video, Keeping Coronavirus Hysteria in High Gear

Big Brother is ramping up due to coronavirus.



Facebook is reportedly throwing a Project Veritas video off of their monolithic social media platform because the video contains information about coronavirus that is unapproved by the political and media establishment.

CNN reporter Oliver Darcy reported that Facebook would be removing the Veritas video from their platform because of nebulous and unspecified policy violations. Veritas founder James O’Keefe blamed Darcy for allegedly being a snitch and attempting to get his video removed from social media platforms.

O’Keefe also blasted New York Times reporter Andrew Jacobs for his moral preening in criticizing his coronavirus reporting.

The controversial video published by Veritas shows O’Keefe talking with boots on the ground at coronavirus testing sites. He talked to Army personnel and health care workers who claimed the pandemic is not as bad as the media and government officials are purporting it to be.

Certain transcripts from the Veritas video can be seen here:

James O’Keefe: “What about the situation itself. Is it as bad as–the media is saying? The whole pandemic?”
New York Army National Guardsman: “Oh no. It’s the flu!”
O’Keefe: “That’s all it is?”
Guardsman: “It’s the flu.”

O’Keefe: “Is it as bad as they’re saying, this pandemic? Everyone’s freaking out. Is it bad, is it overblown by the media, what is it like?”
Medical worker: “Is it what?”
O’Keefe: “Is the media accurately reporting or is it as bad as people are saying?”
Medical worker: “No.”
O’Keefe: “It’s not as bad as the—”
Medical worker: “It’s precautionary.”
O’Keefe: “The media is making it out bigger?”
Medical worker: “Yes.”

O’Keefe’s video has garnered controversy because it goes against the narrative of fear and hysteria that has been pushed by the fake news media, government bureaucrats and official expert class.

“The rollout of our findings does not endorse COVID-19 behavior one way or another, nor do we encourage others. Our goal is to inform the public and allow the public to make judgments on the issues,” O’Keefe said. “Emotionally driven, knee-jerk reactions journalists are the last thing the public should be subjected to in a time of crisis.”

“I realize this will probably upset some, but Project Veritas goes to the front lines to get unfiltered, raw information, to the public. We’re not here to project a narrative or even to draw a conclusion—we don’t even know who the villains are, if any,” O’Keefe added.

Despite Facebook’s reported censorship of the Veritas video, there are no plans for Twitter and YouTube to remove the content from their platforms at the present time.
