Wednesday, Laura Loomer discussed Facebook’s degenerate call for violence against those whom it called “dangerous,” and subsequent reversal of the policy after facing significant backlash from the conservative community.
“Yesterday, to my shock and horror, Facebook updated its ‘community standards’ section to incite violence against me and other banned conservatives who they have deemed ‘dangerous individuals,'” Loomer said. “Yes, I wish I was making this up, but unfortunately it’s true. Facebook literally said that you cannot post death threats on their platform unless – and these were their words exactly – unless its targeted towards dangerous individuals and organizations.
Loomer described the social media companies as not just being above the law, but being “above the government,” and discussed Facebook’s deletion of its violent policy, and subsequent quiet removal and “coverup,” which the mainstream press will not cover.
This site reported Wednesday:
After Facebook was caught Tuesday encouraging violent threats against individuals that it deemed “dangerous” on its platform, including Laura Loomer and Paul Joseph Watson, the company has quietly removed that part of its terms of service Wednesday.
“UPDATE: Facebook has deleted its new policy that allowed violent threats against ‘dangerous individuals” after a backlash. ‘Dangerous individuals’ included anyone Facebook didn’t like,” PJW said on Twitter.
The policy basically declared open season on anyone whom Facebook declared to be “dangerous.” That obviously meant Loomer, whom the company banned from its platform for exactly that reason in May. Tuesday, the same day as the policy came to light, Loomer announced a $3 billion lawsuit against the company for punitive damages.
This site reported on the policy:
A draconian update to Facebook’s Community Standards effectively allows for detractors of banned Conservative media personalities to issue death threats against those classified by Facebook as “dangerous individuals”.
According to Facebook’s recently-updated policy on “violence and incitement”, death threats and incitement of violence are banned across the platform, unless your death threat is aimed at someone the social media company has labeled an acceptable “target”. Yes, really, they used the word target as if it’s some sort of bounty…
Do not post:
Threats that could lead to death (and other forms of high-severity violence) of any target(s), where threat is defined as any of the following:
- Statements of intent to commit high-severity violence
- Calls for high-severity violence (unless the target is an organisation or individual covered in the Dangerous Individuals and Organisations Policy)
- Including content where no target is specified but a symbol represents the target and/or includes a visual of an armament to represent violence
- Statements advocating for high-severity violence (unless the target is an organisation or individual covered in the Dangerous Individuals and Organisations Policy)
- Aspirational or conditional statements to commit high-severity violence (unless the target is an organisation or individual covered in the Dangerous Individuals and Organisations Policy)
As Facebook stated on May 2, 2019, their list of “dangerous individuals” includes InfoWars host Alex Jones, Paul Joseph Watson, conservative activist Laura Loomer, Louis Farrakhan, and Milo Yiannopoulos.
