Facebook: Standing Against Hate

I’m sure by now everyone has seen Facebook’s memo Standing Against Hate:

Our own review of hate figures and organizations – as defined by our Dangerous Individuals & Organizations policy – further revealed the overlap between white nationalism and white separatism and white supremacy. Going forward, while people will still be able to demonstrate pride in their ethnic heritage, we will not tolerate praise or support for white nationalism and white separatism.

I agree with the “Dangerous Individuals & Organizations policy”. We can begin by putting Google, Facebook, the SPLC, the ADL, Hillary Clinton, Sheryl Sandberg, and Mark Zuckerberg on the list.

Facebook equates white separatism and white nationalism with white supremacy even though these are distinct things, and Facebook has no problem with other forms of supremacy and separatism, such as ‘black separatism’ and ‘black power,’ because by whites choosing to separate from other races, what it really means is they want to conquer them, as we all know. After all, Facebook consulted ‘academic experts’ and these people can never be wrong or biased.

The good news is, if this is at all like any of Facebook’s other initiatives, such as the proposed post-election crackdown on ‘fake news,’ they will be unable/unwilling able to enforce it, unlike Twitter and YouTube, which are much more fastidious about enforcing content guidelines. How many times has Facebook promised to respect users’ privacy, but then when the heat dies down go back to their old ways. It is, however, becoming increasing evident that anyone to the right of Ben Shapiro is persona non grata on these sites, be it Amazon, YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, etc. This does still allow a lot of options, such as HBD content (provided it does not cover race too much), but a single misstep can be catastrophic.
