Facebook Bans Immigration Criticism

Facebook will ban certain speech critical of immigration in addition to banning all speech the digital giant deems to be complementary toward “white nationalism” and “white separatism.”

In its new ban on speech it disagrees with, Facebook’s official press release is apparently incomplete according to Vice News, which apparently has access to Facebook’s new mind reading machine. Vice News claims this ban also include some anti-immigration speech.

Vice News added to Facebook’s new policy, explaining that phrases including “‘Immigration is tearing this country apart; white separatism is the only answer'” (emphasis added) would also be banned by the platform.

Facebook did not mention immigration even in passing in its press release. Vice News appears to be the only outlet reporting this insight, relying solely on anonymous Facebook employees as its sources.

Facebook clarified in its release that the company’s policy change will not be wide reaching, as it already stood against much of the newly censored speech. It merely claims that there is no discernible difference between “white supremacy” and “white separatism” or “white nationalism.”

The Big Tech Giant simply explained that after “conversations with members of civil society and academics who are experts in race relations,” they arrived at this conclusion.

Facebook did not provide the evidence that led them to this understanding. It also notes that examples such as “American pride and Basque separatism” will continue to be allowed on the platform.

Their reasoning for including certain speech critical of immigration in the reactionary ban remains unknown.

It appears users will, once again, simply have to watch and react to this new policy change in the coming weeks and months.

Facebook has been under increasing criticism from the right, as many high profile individuals and groups have either been censored by the social media platform or banned from it entirely. The platform recently banned former Breitbart London editor Raheem Kassam, and the alternative news giant ZeroHedge.

Most recently, Facebook banned Australian new media personality Avi Yemini after he responded to a Comedy Central hit piece by posting unedited footage showing host Jim Jeffries express anti-Islamic views the platform likely considered hate speech. Jeffries’ hit piece was allowed to remain on the platform.

A recently introduced Florida bill would allow the state to fine Facebook and other social media websites up to $75,000 for infringing on the freedom of expression and religion of Floridians.

Twitter Blames Nonexistent White Nationalist Group for ANTIFA’s Role in Fomenting Riots

They are trying to disavow their role in allowing ANTIFA terrorists on their platform.

Social media giant Twitter has resorted to blaming a white nationalist group that no longer exists for fomenting riots that have resulted in death and destruction throughout the country.

One Twitter account, @ANTIFA_US, was lampooning the anti-American terrorist group with various posts mocking their extremist stances. They had written that the terrorist group was planning to “move into the residential areas” and “take what’s ours.”

Twitter, which has been known to harbor hate speech from ANTIFA domestic terrorists for many years, is blaming the defunct Identity Evropa (IE) group for the parody account that has since been removed from the platform. IE was officially disbanded in March 2019.

The fake news media is echoing this baseless conspiracy theory, with outlets such as NBC News and Business Insider running with the dubious report.

The American Identity Movement (AIM), a group that was founded to disavow the controversial history of IE, released a statement to address the phony reports running cover for ANTIFA terrorists.

“The unsubstantiated assertion was made without citing any alleged evidence upon which Twitter based such a dubious and inflammatory statement. No effort was made by Twitter to verify its contentions. The issuance of such an unlikely claim without any effort to verify it would be the height of irresponsibility even in normal times,” AIM wrote.

“There appears to be an organized effort by partisan politicians, advocacy journalists, and left-wing activists to shield the rioters who have shaken the nation from coast to coast in recent days by pushing a kooky conspiracy theory that “white supremacists” have infiltrated the rioters and are the “real” source of the arsons and attacks on policemen,” they continued.

“Neither Identity Evropa nor American Identity Movement have advocated, incited, or participated in violence or the fabrication of Antifa Twitter accounts. In addition to moral objections to such behavior, there would be no point in concocting such tweets when social media is replete with Antifa approval, incitement to and participation in such actions,” AIM added.

Journalist Laura Loomer has noted that Twitter has a long history of providing a platform for ANTIFA terrorists and has even called for Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey to be locked up for aiding and abetting and abetting the terror group:

Congressional candidate and banished journalist Laura Loomer is calling for Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey to be arrested because of his association with the ANTIFA domestic terrorist group.

“After censoring President Donald Trump’s tweets about violent riots, Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey put #BlackLivesMatter as the header on the official Twitter Twitter account,” Loomer wrote in a post on the social media platform Parler.

Loomer noted that Dorsey has allowed his platform to be used by ANTIFA members despite the fact that they have egregiously flouted their terms of service by organizing terrorist violence and targeted harassment campaigns. At the same time, Twitter has punished conservative leaders like Loomer with lifetime bans for merely expressing their own opinions in a non-violent manner.

“Jack Dorsey is aiding and abetting terrorist organizations by allowing for ANTIFA terrorists and Islamic terrorists to have access where they are promoting anarchy and lethal riots,” she wrote.

“In the middle of a national emergency, he is also censoring the commander in chief who is posting about the army and national guard responding to the riots,” she added.

Loomer believes that there is a case for Dorsey to be tried with treason for his actions, and the feds should set their sights on him for enabling some of the worst rioting in U.S. history.

“For this, Jack Dorsey should immediately have his home raided by the feds Roger Stone style and be charged with inciting acts of domestic terrorism in America,” she wrote.

“It’s time for Jack Dorsey to be prosecuted for aiding and abetting terrorists and committing TREASON. #LockHimUp,” she added.

Twitter is desperately trying to cover for ANTIFA’s role in the riots so their association with this terrorist organization is not fully understood by the greater public.
