Facebook censors JDL Canada’s profile page

For the second time in less than a year, Facebook has removed the Jewish Defence League (JDL) of Canada’s profile page.

The page was taken down Nov. 27, after an administrator of the page posted a photo of Rabbi Meir Kahane, who founded the Jewish Defense League and was assassinated in a Manhattan hotel by an Arab gunman in 1990.

“It looks like something you posted doesn’t follow our community standards,” the social media giant explained in a message to the JDL’s Canadian director and Meir Weinstein, one of the page’s administrators.

British public would accept three-minute social media delay to tackle extremist content

In an extensive survey on the future of technology, Demos asked their 2,003 respondents how long of a delay – if any -they would be prepared to put up with between pressing “send” and their post appearing online if it meant technology companies such as Twitter and Facebook were able to better police the content uploaded to their sites.

Inside The Secret Facebook Group Of Quebec’s Far-Right “Wolf Pack”

The church basement started filling up at around 12:30 on a snowy Saturday afternoon last January. Though not parishioners of this place of worship in Montreal’s east end, they had the zeal of the converted. Islam, they believed, was infiltrating the politics of both Quebec and Canada, encroaching on their way of life and ultimately setting the stage for Sharia law.

Facebook Banned Me for Tying Islamic Terror to…Well, Islam

A week or so ago I was banned (again!) by Facebook for critical comments I made about Islam. I was reported by a Muslim female called Farnaz Javed. This Muslimah frequently carries out Islamic Da‘wah on a Facebook discussion page called “The Great British Political Debate.” In other words, she does very little politics; and what politics she does do is always connected to Islam in some way.

Bangladesh: Muslims burn, loot vandalize Hindu houses over rumor that Hindu criticized Muhammad on Facebook

“The rumour was that one Titu Roy, originally from Thakurbari village but currently living in Narayanganj, put up a Facebook post defaming Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) a few days ago.”

This maddened Muslim mob needn’t have bothered. All they needed to do was appeal to Facebook, and the offending post, if it actually existed, would have been deleted immediately. After all, the Vice President of Facebook has assured the Pakistani government that Facebook would remove all “anti-Islam” material. Why wouldn’t the same thing hold true for Facebook in Bangladesh? It certainly holds true for Facebook in the United States.

How Google and MSM Use “Fact Checkers” to Flood Us with Fake Claims

The Left implemented a novel technique of the Big Lie that I will call a Flooding Fake here.  This technique was especially widely used by climate alarmism.  This is what it looks like:

  1. An important figure or organization on the Left is caught doing something wrong, saying something outrageous, or blatantly lying.
  2. The Left injects into public discourse an absolutely fake, but believable, account of this action and immediately “debunks” this account.
  3. The fake narrative is accepted by the public as truth because the public knows that something similar has happened.  The immediate debunking is rejected as a cover-up attempt.
  4. Later, when people accuse the original wrongdoer they use elements of the fake narrative.  This is when “fact checkers” jump on them.  Fake news networks accuse honest statesmen and commentators of spreading fake news.  The liberals’ conviction that the conservatives are stupid and uninformed gets deeper.  Google buries honest pieces far from public sight.  Facebook tries to prevent their sharing.  Leftist politicians cry that they lost elections because of fake news.

Google and Facebook must do more to tackle online extremism and fake news, says World Economic Forum

The study from the Swiss nonprofit organisation adds to a chorus of calls for Silicon Valley to stem the spread of violent material from Islamic State militants and the use of their services by alleged Russian propagandists.

Conservatives are just collateral damage.

School trustee: Allowing children to change gender is ‘child abuse’

Barry Neufeld, a trustee for the Chilliwack School District, wrote a Facebook post on Monday slamming the province’s Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity (SOGI) 123 program, which aims to educate children about gender identity, discourage bullying and promote inclusion.

“At the risk of being labelled a bigoted homophobe, I have to say that I support traditional family values and I agree with the College of paediatricians that allowing little children choose to change gender is nothing short of child abuse,” Neufeld wrote in the post.

Zuckerberg And Wife Commit $45 Million To Two Main Political Causes

Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, who is currently the world’s fifth-richest person, has so far publicly committed $45 million to specific political causes, according to a Vice News report published Tuesday.

The hefty sum — although still a fraction of his fortunes — will be directed for the solving of two main areas of personal concern for Zuckerberg and his wife Priscilla Chan: widespread incarceration and unaffordable housing.
