    Default Facebook bans right wing extremist 'boogaloo' group from its platforms

    Facebook has banned an extremist anti-government network associated with the term “boogaloo,” a slang word supporters use to refer to a second civil war.

    Tuesday’s move by Facebook designates the right-wing “boogaloo” network as a dangerous organization similar to the Islamic State group and white supremacists, both of which are already banned from its service.

    The purging of thoughts that are not wanted in UTOPIA will never stop.

    There will always be the next thing that needs to be made to go away.

    Do you think ISIS should be given a platform?

    it's marginally better then Instagram and YouTube. But all that has to be done is label it hatespeech and it goes.
    FB is at least leaving up politicians remarks -but they are getting to be like twitter where they "publish" (editorialize)

    Wrong, liar.

    "A federal security officer was shot to death in Oakland, California, on 30 May, and a Santa Cruz sheriff sergeant was shot to death on 6 June. Their alleged killer had posted about the “boogaloo” on Facebook, where he also connected with the man charged as his accomplice, according to the criminal complaint against him."

    So you agree that a violent organization shouldn't be given a platform?

    I have not considered that question and I dont have an immediate answer, but practically never am I willing to support any speech restrictions, almost always my solution is more and better speech, thus one of many great reasons to not suppress people.

    Its a question of basic human decency to let people say what ever they want...however since ISIS is some of the most indecent humanity has seen in awhile I would need to do a think before I could supply an answer.

    It's just sad when a private business decides it doesn't want to be the platform for hate, racism, violence, and the promotion of same, isn't it?

    Corporations are people too, my friend.
