Facebook Bans Alex Jones, Louis Farrakhan & Milo Yiannopoulos For "Dangerous" Activity

Facebook Bans Alex Jones, Louis Farrakhan & Milo Yiannopoulos For

Trump attacked Twitter and other social media accounts for teaming up with the Democrat party to censor conservatives.

He tweeted and retweeted posts, including those from right-wing figures who had their accounts banned and said he would "monitor the censorship of AMERICAN CITIZENS on social media platforms". He has previously asserted that social media companies exhibit bias against conservatives, something the companies have rejected as untrue.

He also said his administration is "looking into" Facebook's handling of Diamond and Silk, two pro-Trump video bloggers who have charged that the social-networking site has limited the reach of their content. Facebook initially labelled their videos as "unsafe", though it later apologised for the incident and said a year ago it tried repeatedly to work with the duo to address their concerns. "We are monitoring and watching, closely!" he added.

"When will the Radical Left Wing Media apologize to me for knowingly getting the Russia Collusion Delusion story so wrong?"

His defense of Woods in particular came first during his initial tweetstorm, in which he brought up a number of people, including Paul Joseph Watson of Infowars and conservative video podcast personalities Diamond & Silk.

While Trump Jr. did not mention Jones or others by name, the president's eldest son broadly said that unspecified actions by Facebook and "the rest of the Big Tech monopoly men should terrify everyone".

That said, many fans of the show are convinced that Jon played a much more significant role in the Night King's death. Leslie Jones, as well, took a picture with Beyonce one time and wrote in the caption, "I was so nervous".

This week Facebook permanently banned several so-called extremist figures, including InfoWars conspiracy theorist Alex Jones, white nationalist Paul Nehlan, alt-right figure Milo Yiannopoulos and Louis Farrakhan, the Nation of Islam leader who made numerous anti-Semitic statements for promoting violence, hate, or racism on the platform, according to media reports. "Much of what they do is FAKE NEWS!"

"They work so hard and what has been done to them is very sad - and we're looking into".

Trump's subtle threat - delivered in a series of tweets - marked the president's latest broadside against Silicon Valley, which he has repeatedly accused of unfairly targeting and removing conservative users and their views.

Trump's retweets included a range of commentary blasting Facebook's ban as politically-motivated censorship.

The president shared more than a dozen tweets about the subject on Friday night and Saturday morning.

Facebook explained: "The process for evaluating potential violators is extensive and it is what led us to our decision to remove these accounts today".
