Facebook banned Paul Joseph Watson, Alex Jones, Laura Loomer, Milo Yiannopoulos, Louis Farrakhan and others earlier this year after defining them as "dangerous individuals" and now they've changed their rules to allow calls for violence against them.
Facebook's latest Community Standards update reads:
Do not post:
Translation: if the media demonizes someone or we ban them claiming they're "Dangerous Individuals" you can call for "high-severity violence" against them.
Paul Joseph Watson responded to Facebook's new policy in a post on Summit News:
Back in May, Facebook and Instagram banned me under the justification that I was a “dangerous individual”. They provided no evidence whatsoever that I had behaved in a “dangerous” manner or violated any of their policies.As Breitbart's Allum Bokhari reported:
Threats of violence and death are illegal in most western countries, including the countries where the “dangerous individuals” on Facebook’s list are based. By sanctioning violent threats against certain people based on their political viewpoints and public statements, Facebook has crossed a line that even Twitter and Google has yet to cross.First they demonize you, then they deplatform you so you can't fight back and defend yourself, then they wage lawfare against you, then they sanction violence against you.
As I reported last month, Facebook is also going to work in concert with the government of France to rat out its own users so they can be prosecuted for "hate speech."
These modern-day Bolsheviks are working to create a new Soviet system of oppression right before our eyes.
UPDATE: Facebook changed the text of their policy Wednesday after getting backlash and removed the carve out explicitly permitting threatening "dangerous individuals" and other people the media demonizes.
"The language we previously used to describe our policies against violence and incitement was imprecise," Facebook said. "We have since replaced it to more clearly explain the policy and underlying rationale."
