Facebook removes ‘violent’ groups amid boycott from corporate interests—Antifa groups remain

The Post Millennial:

Facebook has banned of hundreds of accounts across its platform including accounts of groups considered violent; however, domestic terrorist Antifa accounts remain. Despite these bans, hundreds of companies enacting a boycott on Facebook advertising, under the direction of activist groups.

This sweeping move came only four days after a Justice Department task force was enacted by Attorney General William Barr to address violent extremist groups operating within the US.

Among those mentioned by Barr are the violent Antifa movement, and the recently emerged boogaloo, according to Fox Business.

The takedown of these pages has been seen as not enough by many corporations that use Facebook to advertise their businesses. As such, over 300 companies have issued temporary boycotts on buying advertising on that platform, according to NPR.

These companies are not concerned about the diminishment of free speech on the platform, but more that Facebook isn’t doing enough to ban speech. Among these companies pulling their advertising for the day, up to a month, or longer, are Starbucks, Target, Volkswagen. Their complaint is that Facebook promotes hate speech. more here

  1. Damn! I wish I could boycott those companies, but I already don’t do one little bit of business with them.

  2. An anonymous source has just leaked that they have banned Claudia’s Critters with extreme predudice.

  3. Facebook is doing what the boycotting corporate advertisers want and those same advertisers are unsatisfied.

    Cognitive dissonance on steroids.

  4. Facebook will wind up banning them.

    And now Tx REPUBLICAN gov Abbot has mandated masks.

    It is only a matter of time before Florida REPUBLICAN gov Desantis does the same thing.

    Get this. Abbot claims it is one of the most effective ways to stop the spread of the virus. Science? Show me.

    The republican party can smd. As elon musk would say, the m stands for ‘my’.

  5. Please don’t boycott us!! See, we are standing up for your wokeness by temporarily saying we don’t think FB and other social media platforms aren’t doing enough

  6. It doesn’t take a genius to know that all of these companies will be back on the social media sites in a few weeks because advertising on them works. The exact antithesis of the jungle mentality that they supposedly support.
