Facebook Bans Romanian Sports Page Celtic Cross

Romanian Facebook page Steaua Libera was banned from Facebook for images posted in 2013, 2014, and 2017 of crowded soccer stadiums where attendees depicted target symbols likely mistaken for the Celtic cross, only to reinstate the page after Big League Politics contacted the big tech platform for comment. 

Steaua Libera, a popular Romanian Facebook page and website that promotes the Steaua Bucharest football club, the official soccer organization of the Romanian Army, was banned from Facebook for years old photos that the platform likely believed depicted racist imagery. The page was reinstated approximately 12 hours after Big League Politics requested a comment from Facebook.

Speaking with Big League Politics, Steaua Libera administrator and editor Adrian Maties told us that the “website is about sports and the Steaua Bucharest club.” Maties went on to say that “We have no interest in doing politics, in selling stuff, promoting stuff, we don’t talk about issues that some may find controversial, we just cover sports and our team.”

Maties went on to explain that Facebook did not specifically say what the page did to constitute a ban.

“Although Facebook didn’t say anything, we understood just by looking at the pictures that the common element was the Celtic Cross,” said Maties. “However, the Celtic Cross symbol is not the focus or the main element in any of the pictures. It just appears on some of the banners held by the Steaua supporters.”

Maties provided the offending photos to Big League Politics. They depict large crowds in football stadiums, and in each of the photos one or two sports fans can be seen holding a sign or banner that has either a target or a Celtic cross.

The Celtic cross has been popularized by neo-Nazi movements as a symbol of white nationalism or white supremacy, though this is almost certainly not the motive behind the sports fans bringing the signs or banners to a sporting event.

Maties explained to Big League Politics that “These four photos were published in 2013, 2014 and 2017. They were not in fact 4 photos, but 2 photos, published and republished.” He went on, “Having our page unpublished for just 4 pictures, that aren’t even about racism, but about supporters having a good time at the stadium is just not fair.”

The page was reinstated approximately 12 hours after Big League Politics contacted Facebook.

Big League Politics contacted Facebook for comment about this ban. In response, a Facebook spokesperson told Big League Politics that “The page Steaua Liberă does not break our policies and has been restored.”

They went on to apologize for the inconvenience caused to Maties.

Lawsuit: Twitter Kept Child Porn on Platform Because It Does Not Violate Their Terms of Service

Published

on

A lawsuit is alleging that the social media giant Twitter did not remove child pornography from their platform because the tech monopoly claims it does not violate their terms of service.

The lawsuit is accusing Twitter of profiting from child pornography that was shared on their platform. It was filed by the victim and her mother in federal court in the Northern District of California on Wednesday. 

The victim, who is now 17, reportedly was targeted by sex traffickers at the age of 13 over Snapchat who then blackmailed him into sending lewd photographs. They then coerced him into performing sex acts with another minor on video, and copies were eventually leaked into child pornography rings.

The videos were allegedly displayed on Twitter, who was alerted to the child sex videos at least three times. According to the suit, Twitter refused to do anything to remove the child sex videos until a federal law enforcement official intervened.

Twitter’s alleged response was that the social media provider “didn’t find a violation of our policies” with the content:

 

Big League Politics has reported on how Twitter altered their terms of service to make their social media platform more hospitable to pedophiles:

Social media giant Twitter has quietly amended their terms of service to allow for “discussions related to… attraction towards minors” to be allowed on their platform.

“Discussions related to child sexual exploitation as a phenomenon or attraction towards minors are permitted, provided they don’t promote or glorify child sexual exploitation in any way,” reads Twitter’s terms of service.

Twitter allow noted that they would allow for nude depictions of children on their platform in certain instances.

“Artistic depictions of nude minors in a non-sexualized context or setting may be permitted in a limited number of scenarios e.g., works by internationally renowned artists that feature minors,” they added.

Twitter’s pro-pedo policy may have been implemented at the behest of Dr. James Cantor, who describes himself as a proud Jewish homosexual. Cantor is a leading researcher and advocate for pedophiles, who he refers to as minor-attracted persons.

Cantor wrote a letter in Jan. 2018 to John Starr, who works as Director of Trust and Safety with Twitter, with other university academics. The letter urged Twitter to allow pedophiles to network and discuss their attraction to children on the monolithic social media platform.

“Many of us have worked with a group of such non-offending pedophiles, also known as anti-contact MAPs (Minor-Attracted Persons), in a peer support network called Virtuous Pedophiles (@virpeds), as well as in other support networks,” they wrote in their letter.

“Recently, a prominent member of Virtuous Pedophiles, who goes by the pseudonym Ender Wiggin (@enderphile2), had his account permanently suspended by Twitter. At least one other member of the same network, Šimon Falko (@simgiran), also had his account permanently suspended around the same time, and a number of other accounts of non-offending, anti-contact MAPs have since been permanently or temporarily suspended,” they added.

It seems that Big Tech is deliberately allowing social media platforms to permit child porn, as the LGBT agenda pushes to normalize child sexuality and pedophilia. America is set to become Sodom and Gomorrah on steroids if globalism cannot be thwarted.
