Orwellian: It Is Now a Facebook Violation to Speak Positively ANYWHERE About People Facebook Doesn’t Like
In August 2018 Facebook permanently banned Infowars for unspecified “hate speech.”
The tech giants, including Facebook, Twitter, Google-YouTube and Wikipedia have all stepped up their harassment of conservative publishers since the 2016 election.
Conservative television host, writer and popular YouTuber Paul Joseph Watson reported at the time.
Facebook has permanently BANNED Infowars.
For unspecified "hate speech". They didn't even tell us what the offending posts were.
This sets a chilling precedent for free speech.
To all other conservative news outlets – you are next.
The great censorship purge has truly begun. pic.twitter.com/v7Yo9hI0q3

Paul Joseph Watson works for Infowars and has been employed by Alex Jones for several years.
On Thursday Paul Joseph Watson was banned from Facebook for being associated with Infowars and Alex Jones.
Paul Joseph Watson has NEVER broken Facebook rules… But he associates with Alex Jones.
Facebook is now banning anyone who is linked to Infowars or has shared too many stories from the conservative Infowars page.
Russians buy a few Facebook ads.
Leftists: This is horrendous! This is election meddling! Democracy is at stake!
Facebook bans most of the people who helped get Trump elected.
Leftists (and boomers): Hur dur muh private company can do what it likes.

But it’s even worse…
It is now a violation of Facebook policy to speak positively ANYWHERE about people they don’t like.

This is completely Orwellian.
And it looks like they will get away with it.
