Facebook announced Thursday afternoon that it had designated some high-profile people, including Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan, who's notorious for using anti-Semitic language, and right-wing conspiracy theorist Alex Jones, as "dangerous" and said it will be purging them from its platforms.

Jones and his media outlet InfoWars had previously been banned from Facebook (FB) in August 2018, but had maintained a presence on Instagram, which is owned by Facebook. On Thursday, Jones and InfoWars will be barred from Instagram as well.
Other people banned on Thursday included Paul Nehlen, an anti-Semite who unsuccessfully ran for Congress in 2016 and 2018, and fringe right-wing media personalities Laura Loomer, Milo Yiannopoulos and Paul Joseph Watson.
"We've always banned individuals or organizations that promote or engage in violence and hate, regardless of ideology," a Facebook spokesperson said in a statement provided to CNN Business. "The process for evaluating potential violators is extensive and it is what led us to our decision to remove these accounts today."
A Facebook spokesperson told CNN Business the company goes through a lengthy process and takes into consideration a number of factors before determining an individual to be "dangerous."


I wonder if their removal of Farrakhan was just a cover to get rid of these "Fringe" Right Wingers... nevermind Alex, PJ Watson, Loomer, etc. have reach as good as, or better than, Butch Maddow or TYT.

I would bet Farrakhan is a payrolled double triple quadruple agent. Otherwise, he would have been MLK'd a long time ago.

<3 PJW

Not sure what FB is for anyway. PJ Watson is the best part of my breakfast routine. Telling it like it is.

If someone can't make Julius Streicher blush, is he worth reading?
