And judging by Facebook’s treatment of foes of jihad terror and Sharia oppression of women and others, they are likely to find themselves on the “Dangerous Individuals” list.
This new policy incites the violent and hateful among Facebook’s 2 billion users to threaten to kill people whose points of view dissent from the Leftist agenda.
The descent to fascist authoritarianism is swift, isn’t it?
“Facebook Issues New Policy Saying It’s Acceptable to Post Death Threats Against Me,” by Paul Joseph Watson, Summit News, July 9, 2019:
Facebook has issued a new policy update saying it’s acceptable to post death threats and incite violence against me, despite this being a crime in the United Kingdom.
No, I’m not joking.
A Community Standards update published by Facebook states (emphasis mine); “Do not post: Threats that could lead to death (and other forms of high-severity violence) of any target(s) where threat is defined as any of the following:
Statements of intent to commit high-severity violence; or
Calls for high-severity violence (unless the target is an organization or individual covered in the Dangerous Individuals and Organizations policy)….”
Back in May, Facebook and Instagram banned me under the justification that I was a “dangerous individual”. They provided no evidence whatsoever that I had behaved in a “dangerous” manner or violated any of their policies.
Facebook has designated me a “dangerous individual” and now says it’s acceptable for its users to issue death threats against me.
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.”
The largest social media company in the world with over 2 billion users literally says its fine to incite violence against me, despite this being illegal.
They are painting a target on my back.
Innumerable individuals have already sent death threats to me via Facebook….
