WATCH: Snoop Dogg Slams Big Tech Censorship, ‘Ban Me Mothaf**kas’
After Facebook and Instagram banned several prominent personalities today, including Alex Jones, Paul Joseph Watson, Laura Loomer, Milo Yiannopoulos, and Louis Farrakhan, rapper Snoop Dogg uploaded a video slamming big tech censorship.
Snoop Dogg reacted to perhaps the first example of a prominent left wing voice being banned after Farrakhan was banned earlier today. He was banned at the same time as various prominent right wing media personalities and activists.
The rapper posted the video to Instagram earlier this afternoon, where it currently has over 100,000 views.
“For real that’s how ya’ll feel? So Facebook and Instagram just banned the minister Louis Farrakhan,” said Snoop Dogg. “I wanna know for what? All he ever do was tell the truth. But ya’ll gonna ban him.”
“Alright, what if we ban ya’ll? What if we stop f**king with ya’ll?” The rapper continued, “How are you gonna ban the minister Farrakhan.”
“I stand with him, I’m with him,” Snoop Dogg continued. “Ban me motherf**ker. Ban me. Cause I’m gonna keep posting this sh*t, I’m gonna keep putting Louis Farrakhan out there, that’s my dear brother.”
Facebook said in a statement to Big League Politics that they banned several people today because they deem them “dangerous” and “hate figures.”
“There’s a bunch of motherf**kers ya’ll could ban, but ya’ll choose Minister Farrakhan,” Snoop Dogg concluded.
Big League Politics independently verified the extent of these bans earlier today. Jones, who had his personal Facebook account terminated along with his Instagram page, received perhaps the most severe ban.
Individual users who link to Infowars content including videos will now have their content removed and may be banned from the platform if they persist in posting the content.
In an attempt to clarify its stance, Facebook told Big League Politics that the platform will let users make posts complimentary about Infowars or reflecting them in a positive nature, but will not allow users to post links to Infowars videos, unless they are doing so to condemn the content.
This would seem to mean that simply linking to the Infowars website is now prohibited, as virtually every article includes videos featuring Jones, and a live stream or replay of the most recent episode of “The Alex Jones Show” is featured on the sidebar of the Infowars website.
In a statement from Facebook Policy Communications Manager Sarah Pollack, she told Big League Politics that today’s decision was made after an extensive period of examining whether the platform considers Jones to “promote or engage in violence and hate,” and told Big League Politics that its “process for evaluating potential violators is extensive” and it culminated in the actions taken today.
This action marks a stunning new level of censorship from the big tech platform.
