Facebook has removed accounts associated with Alex Jones, Milo Yiannopolous, Laura Loomer, and other so-called “far-right” figures.
Alex Jones, who owns the website InfoWars, was purged from nearly every social media platform earlier in 2019 for allegedly promoting conspiracy theories and hateful rhetoric. Jones has categorically denied being labelled a bigot. Yiannopolous, formerly of Breitbart fame, was famously banned from Twitter after criticizing the all-female Ghostbusters reboot.
Clearly, most of the high profiles affected by Facebook’s latest purge have a more right-wing appeal. But, those weren’t the only victims. Black nationalist icon Louis Farrakhan, who regularly uses anti-Semitic language in his speeches, also got the boot. Apparently, this treatment is no longer restricted to right-wing voices.
Of course, the right has been warning edgier left-wing content creators that they would be the next domino to fall for a long time. While conservatives have certainly faced far more scrutiny on social media platforms (particularly Facebook and Twitter), censorship never stops there.
This goes beyond Silicon Valley barons having a political bias. Content creators have had their finances attacked too, with several financial organizations flat-out refusing to do business with certain creators due to their politics. It’s almost fair to say that social media is just trying to play it safe.
Paul Joseph Watson, who is a part of InfoWars, had a few things to say after Jones and others were banned. Check out the full video below.
