Facebook won't tolerate "Right wing" videos, but is OK with ISIS videos
Saturday, 19 August 2017

 

 Facebook has banned the Facebook and Instagram accounts of a "white nationalist" who attended the rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, that  unfiortunately ended in deadly violence thanks to Soros paid leftist activists who got $25/hr to stage an incident.

There is no definition of what the term "white nationalist" actually means. It can mean a person who wishes to preserve the history of the American Confederacy, it can mean a person who fights for free speech, and it could also be a person who actually has racist tendencies and believes of one group of people dominating others (aren't these called "progressives"?), but the trouble is that they are all grouped into one now.

Facebook spokeswoman Ruchika Budhraja tells The Associated Press that the profile pages of Christopher Cantwell have been removed as well as a page connected to his podcast. Cantwell was featured in a Vice News documentary about the rally and its aftermath.

Facebook has also removed at least eight pages connected to the white nationalist movement over what Budhraja says were violations on the company’s polices on hate speech and organizations.

Meanwhile,Britain's The Times reported that Facebook refused to remove illegal terrorist and child pornography content despite it being flagged by users. This content potentially puts the social media giant at risk of criminal prosecution.

"Last month The Times created a fake profile on Facebook to investigate extremist content," Alexi Mostrous, the paper's head of investigations, reported Thursday. "It did not take long to come across dozens of objectionable images posted by a mix of jihadists and those with a sexual interest in children."

Mostrous reported that a Times reporter posed as an IT professional in his thirties, befriended more than 100 supporters of the Islamic State (ISIS), and joined groups promoting lewd or pornographic images of children. He then "flagged" many of the images and ISIS videos.

Facebook moderators reportedly kept online pro-jihadist posts including one praising ISIS attacks "from London to Chechnya to Russia and now Bangladesh in less than 48 hours," promising to bring war "in the heart of your homes." The site's moderators also refused to remove an official news bulletin posted by the Islamic State praising the slaughter of 91 "Christian warriors" in the Palm Sunday bombings of two Egyptian churches.
