Prominent conservatives have found themselves banned for no explicit reason from Facebook and its Instagram platform. Prominent conservative blogger Paul Joseph Watson blasted, “In an authoritarian society controlled by a handful of Silicon Valley giants, all dissent must be purged.” Facebook defended itself in an email to the Atlantic, arguing “We’ve always banned individuals or organizations that promote or engage in violence and hate, regardless of ideology.” Of course “hate” is in the eye of the beholder, and to Leftists anything not in line with their ideology qualifies for that moniker.
