FB Does Something Right!

#21
The Labour Party aren't banned despite the support of Hamas and Hezbollah, and calling for ISIS terrorists to be repatriated to the UK
Can you work out why?

Come on, when do we get to the book-burning and window-smashing? I haven't got all day.
that sort of thing is best done at night anyway

I do agree that extremists should be blocked from the likes of FB, but this needs to be balanced. No use getting rid of one set of extremists just to permit their opposites free rein, could lead to claims of bias!
Bit like the BBC you mean :D

I imagine it will be about as effective in stopping the spread of hate-speech as the porn ban will be in stopping teenage boys thrashing themselves senseless in front of their laptops......

Fecking ridiculous. If their ideas are so stupid, let them be heard. This is basically just "ban everything I don't like because it is obviously evil".

Just after Jez has finished sitting for the National Anthem and standing for the Red Flag.

Though I may disagree fundamentally with @labrat on many issues, I defend their right to their opinions; just as I expect them to respect my opinion.

But the peculiar evil of silencing the expression of an opinion is, that it is robbing the human race; posterity as well as the existing generation; those who dissent from the opinion, still more than those who hold it. If the opinion is right, they are deprived of the opportunity of exchanging error for truth: if wrong, they lose, what is almost as great a benefit, the clearer perception and livelier impression of truth, produced by its collision with error.

I'm not sure those dancing with glee at the thought of driving the doubleplusungood hatespeak underground have thought their fleeting "victory" through...

Except the Labour Party, where racism and antisemitism is still allowed amongst the woke massive
No it isn't. Stop peddling lies

While they may be working in the right direction you will note it is only one side that is mentioned. It would help reporting if it was mentioned if FB has taken similar action, or were about to, on groups from the other side of the spectrum. If they haven't then it looks like FB have succumbed to outside pressures.
I believe, anecdotally from friends, that antifa types have been hoofed off FB too. So, hopefully, there has been some sort of attempt at balance.

And of course the Conservative Party where racism and antisemitism is still allowed amongst the woke massive!

That bunch of wet centre left remainers, they couldn't organise a piss up in a brewery without doing a survey to make sure everyone had checked their privilege first
