Cool, FB’s helping me out for my next suspension

The banning of multiple political commentators from Facebook and Instagram, including conservatives Paul Joseph Watson and Laura Loomer, is an outrage against the ideals of an open Internet on its own. But beyond the bans on individuals, Facebook has deployed an even more terrifying tool of censorship — link-banning.
The mainstream media were, of course, tipped off about the bans in advance, and the Atlantic’s report contains the following eye-opening detail. Not only has Alex Jones’ personal account now been banned from Facebook, in addition to PrisonPlanet editor-in-chief and YouTube star Paul Joseph Watson, but all links to Infowars sites are now banned across the platform. Share Infowars too often, and you’ll be banned too.

    Rule 2: Never facebook, EVER. Facebook needs to be boycotted by everyone and put out of business. Zuckerberg and all the rest of the commie silicon valley “masters of the universe” should accidentally fall feet first into a wood chipper or commercial meat grinder. Even that’s too good for them but I can’t immediately think of something more dire.

    They built their companies using infrastructure touted as free and open and, as is typical of these left wing moonbats, suborned it into something that it was never intended to be, just because they think they can.

    This is what censorship in the 21st Century looks like.

Play nice.
