'Just when we thought that Big Tech couldn’t get any more blatantly hypocritical with its “community standards,” Facebook comes along and issues a new policy stating that it’s now okay to issue death threats against people you don’t like online, just so long as they’re conservatives.
According to Facebook’s new rules, which directly violate its old rules, leftists on Facebook are free to incite violence against people whom they deem as “dangerous individuals,” including Paul Joseph Watson of Infowars, who was banned both from Facebook and the Facebook-owned social media platform Instagram back in May.
Watson says that Facebook tried to justify this censorship by deeming him a “dangerous individual,” even though the company couldn’t provide Watson with any examples as to why. Not long after that, Facebook issued a “Do not post” memorandum warning that calls for “high-severity” violence on its platform are off limits “unless the target is an organization or individual covered in the Dangerous Individuals and Organizations policy.”
Even though Watson has never done anything other than use wit and humor to share his opinions via social media, Facebook says he’s “dangerous,” and thus a permitted target for leftist hatred and violence, however it should manifest itself.
“This is a crime in the United Kingdom under the 1988 Malicious Communications Act which states, ‘Any person who sends to another person a letter, electronic communication or article of any description which conveys … a threat … is guilty of an offence,'” Watson writes.'
