Facebook bans UK far right hate groups & leaders

Post by JimboPSM » April 19, 2019, 1:37 pm

It appears that Facebook is finally beginning to grow a backbone and get serious about cleaning up its act by clearing out those who use it as a propaganda platform for their sick, evil and twisted agendas.

Facebook is permanently banning some of the lowest forms of evolutionary life to be found in the UK, the far right hate groups with their xenophobic, racist and fascist leaderships.

From BBC News:
Facebook bans UK far right groups and leaders

Facebook has imposed a ban on a dozen far-right individuals and organisations that it says "spread hate".

The ban includes the British National Party and Nick Griffin, the English Defence League and the National Front.

The list also includes Britain First, which was already banned, but this latest action will prohibit support for it on any of the US firm's services.

It said it had taken the action because those involved had proclaimed a "violent or hateful mission".

"Individuals and organisations who spread hate, or attack or call for the exclusion of others on the basis of who they are, have no place on Facebook," the social network added in a statement.

The ban includes:

• The British National Party and its ex-leader Nick Griffin

• Britain First, its leader Paul Golding and former deputy leader Jayda Fransen

• English Defence League and its founding member Paul Ray

• Knights Templar International and its promoter Jim Dowson

• National Front and its leader Tony Martin

• Jack Renshaw, a neo-Nazi who plotted to murder a Labour MP

A spokesman for Facebook clarified what would now be done to the pages the groups and individuals had run on its site. All those named would be prevented from having a presence on any Facebook service.

In addition, praise and support for the groups or named individuals would no longer be allowed.....

..... This current action, said Facebook, went further than the restrictions placed on Britain First last year when its official pages were removed for breaking the site's community standards.

The latest move comes soon after Facebook said it would block "praise, support and representation of white nationalism and separatism" on its main app and Instagram.

Some controversial figures, such as Tommy Robinson (Stephen Yaxley-Lennon), are already subject to bans on the social network.

Ashamed to be English since 23rd June 2016 when England voted for racism (and economic suicide).

Humiliated to have Johnson (a racist, serial liar and hypocrite) as UK Prime Minister.

So all that will be remaining in the vast, echo-chamber of the Interwebs is hair-twirling Nancy Boys who bow to Sharia and don't object to their children being gang-raped by grooming gangs.

If that's your definition of progress, good to see your ilk being eliminated from the gene pool.

If you find the profusion of liberal/progressive hate signaling perplexing or unsettling, you may find some comfort in a rational and common sense explanation of how it happens as provided by this speaker.
