FACEBOOK Finally Does Something Right, Bans Alex Jones And InfoWars

Take heart all you FB users who get sent to FB Jail and banned for so-called explicit pictures.  Facebook has FINALLY done something right and has banned blowhard propagandist and conspiracy theory loon Alex Jones and InfoWars!

Fortune Magazine reports:

Problems for Alex Jones and Infowars multiplied Monday as Facebook announced it had “unpublished” four pages run by the conspiracy theorist and radio host, effectively removing him from that platform. The announcement comes just as Apple announced it had removed the entire library of five out of six Infowars’ podcasts, saying the video and audio files had violated its policy against hate speech. Facebook cited the same reasons.

“We have taken it down for glorifying violence, which violates our graphic violence policy, and using dehumanizing language to describe people who are transgender, Muslims and immigrants, which violates our hate speech policies,” Facebook said in a statement. “All four Pages have been unpublished for repeated violations of Community Standards and accumulating too many strikes.”

Expect some major faux outrage and victim playing to come from the alt-right.
