'Facebook and Instagram have blacklisted political commentator Faith Goldy from their platforms, just one week after Goldy was also banned from Airbnb for her political views.
According to CBC News, Goldy was banned from Facebook on Monday as part of a larger crackdown on individuals and groups, with the Big Tech company reportedly citing its “longstanding policies on extremist content and organized hate groups.”
“Individuals and organizations who spread hate, attack, or call for the exclusion of others on the basis of who they are have no place on Facebook,” declared Facebook in a statement. “That’s why we have a policy on dangerous individuals and organizations, which states that we do not allow those who are engaged in offline ‘organized hate’ to have a presence on Facebook.”
“The individuals and organizations we have banned today violate this policy, and they will no longer be allowed a presence on our services,” the company continued. “Our work against organized hate is ongoing and we will continue to review individuals, pages, groups and content against our community standards.”
In a statement, Goldy declared, “BANNED FROM @FACEBOOK & @INSTAGRAM… Somehow [Canada’s] state media had enough advance warning to get a piece out before even I found out![…] I have committed no crime. My only fault has been loving my country and citing statistics!”
The Canadian Anti-Hate Network took credit for Goldy’s ban in a post on Twitter, with the group claiming, “We have been calling for them to remove Goldy for several weeks, and this was the test that the new policy would be meaningful in Canada.”
Just last week, Goldy was banned from Airbnb due to her political views, while last year, Goldy was banned from using payment processing service PayPal.'
