Facebook would not explicitly condemn the SPLC.

Facebook SPLC

Last week the legally embattled Southern Poverty Law Center took credit for Facebook and Instagram’s decision to ban Paul Joseph Watson, Milo Yiannopoulos, Laura Loomer, and any link or video featuring Alex Jones, and in a statement to Big League Politics Facebook would not deny that the SPLC held power over its decision.

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.

In all of the statements Big League Politics received from Facebook, they have refused to acknowledge an official relationship with the SPLC, and have also refused to disavow them.

The company’s vague response to our request for comment shines a light on the possible overlap between the SPLC’s list of “hate figures,” which Facebook claims it does not map to, and the company’s policies.

Additionally, Facebook’s refusal to explicitly condemn the SPLC may represent a de facto endorsement of the group’s culture of misogyny and racism, which led to the termination or resignation of multiple high level SPLC employees in the wake of a lawsuit launched by conservative writer and media personality Gavin McInnes.

McInnes is suing the SPLC after they designated him and the Proud Boys, which he founded and later stepped down from, “hate figures” and “hate groups”, which many believe led to the group and its prominent members being banned from most social media and financial systems including PayPal and Chase Bank.

Meet the Alternative to the Drudge Report

Use Real News Feed, not Drudge.

Published

An alternative to the Drudge Report has emerged.

Drudge has been in the news lately after controversy emerged about its recent wave of negative coverage of President Donald Trump.

The otherwise renowned conservative news aggregator has now joined the anti-Trump mania and is routinely putting out content that attacks the president.

Fox News host Tucker Carlson recently described Matt Drudge as a “man of the progressive Left.” He told Matthew Lysiak, the author of a biography on Matt Drudge, that “Matt Drudge is now firmly a man of the progressive left. At times, his site is indistinguishable from The Daily Beast or any other woke propaganda outlet posing as a news company.”

Rumors abounded about Drudge selling out or selling his site to anti-Trump interests and signing a non-disclosure agreement to make sure the controversy surrounding this change in direction was kept under wraps.

No matter how people spin it, Drudge’s pivot towards generic anti-Trump journalism has done a number on its traffic. Drudge Report’s politically correct descent has opened up a vacuum that needs to be filled by America First media.

Enter Real News Feed.

Unlike Drudge, Real News Feed is willing to compile content from an America First perspective.

That means, anything exposing the flaws in the U.S.’s migration system to exposing legacy conservative outlets such as Fox News for their drift towards anti-America First narratives.

When the conservative movement is stagnating, there has to be a dissident outlet that can actually provide fresh perspectives. Now is not the time for people to play nice. Nor is it appropriate for so-called “conservative” outlets to be pushing narratives that can be found in the mainstream media.

America is going through an unprecedented cultural and political transformation which will require it to have a right that is willing to fight back. At the end of the day, it all starts with having a truly alternative voice in the media. From there, ideas can be disseminated and narratives can be shaped. If it wants to move forward, American nationalism needs as many friendly outlets as possible.

All America Firsters should support Real News Feed.
