Skip to comments.Facebook: Farrakhan’s Anti-Semitic Conspiracy Theories Don’t Violate ‘Hate Speech’ Rules

Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhans official Facebook page is rife with anti-Semitic conspiracy theories and other hateful speech, which have not been censored by Facebook content monitors, a Daily Caller News Foundation review of the page reveals.
Videos posted to Farrakhans Facebook page show the Nation of Islam leader claiming that Jews are secretly controlling government agencies to suppress black Americans, blaming Jews for weaponizing marijuana with chemicals to feminize black men, and warning against interracial marriage which he blames on the enemy in Hollywood to keep the black race from being any further mongrelized.
None of those videos violate Facebooks rules prohibiting hate speech, a Facebook spokeswoman told The Daily Caller News Foundation in a phone interview Tuesday.
Facebook and other tech giants, including Spotify, YouTube and Apple, banned right-wing conspiracy theorist Alex Jones from their platforms Monday for violating prohibitions against hate speech.
Heres how Facebook defines hate speech:
a direct attack on people based on what we call protected characteristics race, ethnicity, national origin, religious affiliation, sexual orientation, caste, sex, gender, gender identity, and serious disease or disability. We also provide some protections for immigration status. We define attack as violent or dehumanizing speech, statements of inferiority, or calls for exclusion or segregation.
Farrakhan has repeatedly advanced anti-Semitic conspiracy theories on his Facebook page.
The FBI has been the worst enemy of black advancement. See the Jews have control over those agencies of government, Farrakhan said in a March 7 video clipped from his annual Saviours Day speech.

This enemy, hes so angry with Farrakhan that now if you like me, you have to either hide it, especially if you want advancement in the white mans world. Now if you go to work tomorrow and Jews are your boss, dont tell em where you been, Farrakhan said to laughs from the audience.
Farrakhan claims in another video that the U.S. government and Jews are working together to weaponize marijuana with chemicals that perform lobotomies.
Minister Farrakhan talks about the role of the U.S. government and the Jewish community in the weaponization of marijuana that is feminizing and killing Black men, the videos description reads.
Now God dont want you inter-marrying with them, Farrakhan said of white people in a November 2016 video. Farrakhan claimed that: God wanted us to be to ourselves, us with our women. He respected white people who wanted to keep their race white, because we sure want to keep ours from being any further mongrelized.
The Nation of Islam leader blamed Hollywood which he has repeatedly and unapologetically said is under Jewish control for promoting interracial marriage.
One February 2017 video posted to Farrakhans page shows him telling a Nation of Islam audience, Your fathers built civilization while the white man was crawling around the hills and cave sides of Europe. Stand up, black man and woman, and be yourself, and stop copying this freak of a human.
Fakebook sides with antisemites and black nationalists.
They’ve made their bed.
“...Fakebook sides with antisemites and black nationalists.

Agreed. Perhaps another $16-20 billion loss will wake em up, but I doubt it.
They need a real good “awakening”.
So zuckerbergs hate speech policy is a complete sham - with no substance in reality. Or else, he thinks its just fine, no problem when hate- filled bigots make up dangerous lies - so long as they attack specifically Jewish people.
Facebook, like Info Wars and Fox News has the right to determine the editorial slant of their platform.
As does the EIB Radio network.
What about his condemnation of homosexuals and same-sex marriage?
Listen and be amazed
Such a shame to see conservatives take the crybaby route, rather than trying to compete against FB.
There’s a whole internet out there folks. Learn some coding or programming, think up a good website name, hire some investors, and compete.
Yes, they do. Apparently it’s hypocrisy in their TOS.
InfoWars, EIB and Fox are content providers.
Fakebook is a platform. They have no content of their own. The Common Carrier legal theory should prevail.
They permit what they like.
They ban or suppress what they do not like.
They like Farrakhan. They like anti-Semitism. They like racism directed against white males.
They do not like InfoWars. They do not like any conservative alternative news, like Breitbart or Drudge.
And you already know what they think about FR.
Of course Facebook would say that..they are run by Commies, they approve of the disgusting FILTH that comes out of Farrakhan’s nasty trap
Long been done with FaceBook, and personally, anyone that still has an active account with FaceBook needs their heads examined.
Facebook sounds like a Horrible place
your hypothetical website will be backpaged in the search engines and your site would be blacklisted by advertisers.
they fired the founder and CEO of firefox-mozilla because he gave to a political proposition that passed by majority vote. the iris illegally leaked his name as a contributor.
And unless you market your own phone, expect your site’s app will be blocked by iTunes.
And expect to find yourself in court if you block PFLAG, BLM, NOI, CAIR. You have to bake that cake for them, no refusal.
Nay, Facebook is content. The user’s postings are the content. The minuscule news feeds are content from another source. The chat and mail are content.
That they choose to publish other content is a secondary business. They do not charge other content providers. They just make their service available to others (some others) in order to keep their users viewing their paid advertising.
Not at all unlike Fox or EIB.
The PLATFORM is the world wide web and the underlying internet and naming services. And that’s what must be protected.
Not the triviality of just another content provider.
When the entire enforcement bureaucracy is against you it is foolish to rely on the enforcement bureaucracy. If we really believe in the free market, then that us where we should put our efforts. the format is known, there is no magic in the code,it comes down to a great name and marketing. lets have a contest for a great name. BTW, Facebook is a great name. we can do better. The money is available at the drop of a hat.
Hmm, that opens up the possibility that it’s not hate speech at all, and it’s all true. *cough*
Wait... Isn’t Zuckerberg a Jewish name?
