Facebook’s blacklist of “dangerous individuals and organizations” includes conservatives whom the big tech platform compares to terror groups like ISIS
By JD Heyes // Oct 16, 2021

We already knew that Facebook, like the other major big tech platforms, is riven with anti-conservative bias, but a newly leaked "dangerous individuals and organizations" list provides next-level insight into what the company's left-wing executives think about at least half of America.


According to The Intercept, which leaked the list, Facebook puts some right-wing figures on par with the worst terrorist groups on the planet including the murderous thugs who belong to ISIS.

"It is built atop a blacklist of over 4,000 people and groups, including politicians, writers, charities, hospitals, hundreds of music acts, and long-dead historical figures," the outlet reported this week.

“Facebook puts users in a near-impossible position by telling them they can’t post about dangerous groups and individuals, but then refusing to publicly identify who it considers dangerous,” notes Faiza Patel, co-director of the Brennan Center for Justice’s liberty and national security program, who reviewed the material, in an interview with the outlet.

The list includes "Nick Fuentes and Gavin McInnes listed alongside ISIS terrorist groups," Information Liberation noted separately.

In addition, the group the Proud Boys, which has been led for a couple of years by known FBI informant Enrique Tarrio, is on the list as well as Joshua Caleb Sutter, leader of the Satanic death cult Atomwaffen Division; he, too, was recently identified publicly as a well-paid FBI stoolie.

According to The Intercept:

The DIO policy and blacklist also place far looser prohibitions on commentary about predominately white anti-government militias than on groups and individuals listed as terrorists, who are predominately Middle Eastern, South Asian, and Muslim, or those said to be part of violent criminal enterprises, who are predominantly Black and Latino, the experts said.

The materials show Facebook offers “an iron fist for some communities and more of a measured hand for others,” said Ángel Díaz, a lecturer at the UCLA School of Law who has researched and written on the impact of Facebook’s moderation policies on marginalized communities.

Brian Fishman, Facebook’s policy director for counterterrorism and dangerous organizations, said in a statement to The Intercept, "This is an adversarial space, so we try to be as transparent as possible, while also prioritizing security, limiting legal risks and preventing opportunities for groups to get around our rules.”

"We don’t want terrorists, hate groups or criminal organizations on our platform, which is why we ban them and remove content that praises, represents or supports them," he added. "A team of more than 350 specialists at Facebook is focused on stopping these organizations and assessing emerging threats. We currently ban thousands of organizations, including over 250 white supremacist groups at the highest tiers of our policies, and we regularly update our policies and organizations who qualify to be banned.”

Some of the designations appear to border on defamation, if anyone cares about big tech companies violating the law these days.

For example, the platform also put on its list the anti-social justice warrior block "A Voice For Men," describing it as a "hate" group; the Southern Poverty Law Center listed the same site as "male supremacist," whatever that is supposed to mean, in 2018.

Other notable sites that were blacklisted as "hate" content included American Free Press, American Renaissance, Britain First and Red Ice Creations.

And for the record, Instagram, which is owned by Facebook, called FBI crime statistics "hate speech" last year. Meanwhile, if you are the son of a Democratic president, you can actually get Facebook to remove accounts critical of you.

Jillian York, director for international freedom of expression at the Electronic Frontier Foundation, observed to The Intercept that “we’ve reached a point where Facebook isn’t just abiding by or replicating U.S. policies, but going well beyond them.”

“We should never forget that nobody elected Mark Zuckerberg, a man who has never held a job other than CEO of Facebook," she added.
