Emboldened by Their Successful Deplatforming of Infowars — Democrats Start Push to Stamp Out FOX News
On Monday Facebook caved to the leftist media mob demanding censorship of InfoWars and permanently banned their page.
Google-YouTube followed suit and also terminated the InfoWars Account.
The tech tyrants launched a coordinated attack on Alex Jones and Infowars.
But Democrats and their media already have their sights on a much bigger target.
Facebook scheduled a public event with reporters last month to promote the new Facebook Watch video feature.
The situation turned ugly when the invited “news reporters” screamed about Facebook allowing FOX News and Infowars on their platform.

The fact that far left “reporters” called on Facebook to ban FOX News from their platform was a new leap for the American left.
If Democrats and their mainstream media want FOX News eliminated from Facebook — the largest and most successful news organization in America today — then it is safe to say the American left wants ALL conservative publishers banned from the social media platform.
Democrat Senator Chris Murphy said as much yesterday.
And last weekend New York City communist Mayor Bill de Blasio discussed the role of FOX News on American culture and what a wonderful world it would be if there were no opposing voices to the Democrat Party’s insanity.

Didn’t Stalin do this?
As we have reported numerous times Facebook is already working overtime to eliminate conservative content from their platform.
A Gateway Pundit June study of top conservative news outlets found that Facebook has eliminated 93% of traffic to top conservative websites.
Facebook began eliminating conservative content after the 2016 election.
