In one of the most disturbing moves by Facebook we've ever seen, the platform banned Alex Jones and other controversial U.S. political personalities for violating the social media company's policies on "dangerous individuals and organizations."
Most of the individuals who've been unilaterally wiped off the face of the largest social media space in the world are far right activists like Milo Yiannopoulos, Laura Loomer and Paul Joseph Watson. However, in a seeming move to appease those on the right who advocate for equal censorship, Facebook also banned far left Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan.
While Facebook has previously banned Infowars from their platform, they allowed personal pages to stay up, but this was apparently too much for the platform to handle. Yes, some of the things Infowars and Alex Jones say are utter nonsense and borderlines on hysterical Islamaphobia. The Free Thought Project has — on more than one occasion — written entire pieces condemning some of the things said by Alex Jones and the other folks at Infowars.
