Facebook Bans GETDMS Group

Facebook banned the popular group ‘God Emperor Trump’s Dank Meme Stash’ yesterday, issuing no warning, and claiming that nude images were found in the group.

The Big Tech Giant did not provide any examples of the sexually inappropriate images allegedly found in the group, and instead banned the 12,500-member group outright, giving them the opportunity to appeal the decision.

Since the group’s admins appealed the decision, should their appeal be denied, the group will be completely deleted with no other opportunities to appeal the decision.

One of the group’s admins, speaking to Big League Politics, insists that they are simply young people who are supporters of President Donald J. Trump, and that the group had strict rules against pornography and other types of images that do not adhere to Facebook’s Community Standards.

“We are a Trump-centric, satirical meme group,” said one of the admins, “And now we’re probably dead men walking.”

“Our admins and mods are well trained and vigilant in policing content,” he continued, “But what we see as acceptable might not be acceptable to a Facebook employee in Singapore, or wherever they work from.”

Facebook has suffered several media blunders related to their heavy handed bans in recent weeks. Just last week, Facebook banned the popular pro-gun group ‘implying we can discuss weapons’, and did not so much as give them the ability to appeal the decision.

The company was also forced to reinstate the account of Raheem Kassam, former editor of Breitbart London, after the massive social media backlash from major figures, including Donald Trump Jr., that occurred following his ban.

Facebook Will Create “Oversight Board” For Users to Appeal Censorship Decisions

A smidgen of accountability.

Published

Facebook is planning on rolling out an “oversight board” to which users of the platform can appeal the censorship of content.

Over the next few weeks, our nearly 3 billion users will have access to an independent review of difficult content decisions,” announced the company in a Thursday blog post.

Facebook is describing the oversight board as a “global body of experts separate from Facebook that will make independent and binding decisions on the cases they choose to hear.” Facebook users will presumably have the option to appeal incidences of censorship to Facebook’s oversight board when they have exhausted use of Facebook’s existing censorship appeal process. However, the existing process is only available on a seemingly arbitrary basis, and it’s probably not unlikely that those who already aren’t in Facebook’s good graces won’t be allowed the opportunity to appeal to the oversight board.

The overseers are employed and selected by Facebook itself, casting serious doubt as to whether they’re genuinely impartial arbiters of social media censorship.

It’s hard to tell if this is a step in the right direction or merely a ruse for the monopoly to counter accusations that its arbitrary censorship process is undemocratic and authoritarian. In predictable fashion, the powerful Oversight Board is staffed almost exclusively with Soros-linked neoliberal progressives, some of whom have already advocated for a European understanding of “free speech” as opposed to an American one.

With great power comes great responsibility, and Facebook seems content to accept the former without the latter. It simply isn’t their place to declare what is permissible political speech.
