Default Facebook “We took down... anything that was taking about possible violence last week"


Facebook says it’s banning the phrase ‘stop the steal’

‘We have already removed a significant number of posts,’ say executives


https://www.theverge.com/2021/1/11/2...tol-mob-attack

Facebook is cracking down on potentially violent sedition ahead of the January 20th inauguration of President-elect Joe Biden, including a widespread temporary ban on phrases associated with the mob that attacked the Capitol building on January 6th. The policy, detailed in a post published Monday by Facebook vice presidents Guy Rosen and Monika Bickert, includes any content containing the words “stop the steal,” an unusually aggressive policy that appears to still be rolling out across the network.

“We are treating the next two weeks as a major civic event,” the post reads. “We are now removing content containing the phrase ‘stop the steal’ under our Coordinating Harm policy from Facebook and Instagram... With continued attempts to organize events against the outcome of the US presidential election that can lead to violence, and use of the term by those involved in Wednesday’s violence in DC, we’re taking this additional step in the lead up to the inauguration.”

“It may take some time to scale up our enforcement of this new step,” the post continues, “but we have already removed a significant number of posts.”

Confirming that enforcement is still spotty. The Verge was able to post text containing the phrase “stop the steal” without any content being immediately removed.

Facebook will also keep in place a number of policies it had established in advance of the election, including automatically disabling comments on any posts in groups pages “that start to have a high rate of hate speech.”

There are already signs that the days leading up to the inauguration may bring violence from supporters of President Trump. The FBI has warned that “armed protests” are planned at all 50 state capitals as well as Washington, DC. As many as 15,000 National Guard troops will be deployed in Washington during the inauguration in case of any civil unrest.

In the immediate aftermath of the Capitol raid, Facebook blocked a string of posts from Trump before suspending his account indefinitely. The platform has also taken a harsher approach toward Stop the Steal accounts in the wake of those actions, treating them as likely to incite violence.

In an interview with Reuters this week, Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg argued that Facebook’s aggressive moderation had largely forced violent groups off of the platform. “We again took down QAnon, Proud Boys, Stop the Steal, anything that was taking about possible violence last week,” Sandberg said. “I think these events were largely organized on platforms that don’t have our abilities to stop hate, don’t have our standards and don’t have our transparency.”

Facebook “We took down... anything that was taking about possible violence last week"


Left out a couple important words.

Should read “We took down... anything IN OUR VERY LIBERAL OPINION that was taking about possible violence last week"

If you paid attention, you would know it was both. There were looney far right assholes, with strong support from ANTIFA.

Regardless of which side they claim to be on, every last one of them are total assholes, and complete idiots. I mean seriously, what good COULD have possibly come from storming the Capitol?

While I don't doubt that ANTIFA could have been involved, so far I've not heard any actual evidence that they were. For example:

https://www.washingtontimes.com/news...ed-protesters/

Quote:
Correction: An earlier version of this story incorrectly stated that XRVision facial recognition software identified Antifa members among rioters who stormed the Capitol Wednesday. XRVision did not identify any Antifa members. The Washington Times apologizes to XRVision for the error.
If you have specific evidence of ANTIFA involvement, please post a link.

We have posted specific evidence of Antifa involvement, but you asshole libtards refuse to acknowledge it. Just like you refuse to acknowledge voter fraud. Or Big Mike.

I'm not going to pretend there aren't true idiots on the right. That would be ridiculous. Of course there are. But unless you want to continue that all blacks are lazy drug using jobless baby makers, and all Mexicans are illegal lawn care workers, and all Asians are horrible drivers that are awesome at math and every Pakistani works in a Quickie Mart, you have to acknowledge that the idiots don't represent the majority or even a measurable FRACTION of the majority.

The assholes that entered the Capitol completely WIPED OUT the message that was created by just being visibly present. There is NO form of media that could ignore that MASSIVE turnout and in a minute all of that was wiped from the table and the "riot" label put in it's place.

What happened last week is a travesty and there is absolutely no excuse for it. If you were inside that building or causing problems for the police outside, it’s going to really suck to be you, as it should.

The punishment for those that broke in, is due. I have no issue with them being held accountable. It is the double standard that has me pissed off beyond belief. There is PLENTY of video of people throwing cans, brick, bottles at officers and beating them and burning their police cars. There are videos of stores being broken in to and fires lit. I want to know when THOSE people are going to have every resources poured in to arresting them. The damage at the Capitol is about a week's work at best. Call a glass guy, a door guy and some custodians. Bam, done. Now think about those looking at their business burned to the ground and tell me where the priority should be?

You cannot in any way defend the looting, rioting, assault, and arson that took place all summer. Treat both equally. Whether that means leniency, or throwing the book at them. Everybody wants to be treated equal until it's your ass, then you want favors.

Do the crime do the time...

What's starting to burn my ass is anyone who was at the rally and did nothing illegal are being called out, fired and could face other legal actions. So it's illegal to protest. Hold those responsible well... responsible but you're going to fire or call for resignations because someone organized a trip to DC to protest. That's what it is heading towards.

Going against the party is not allowed and there will be hell to pay for not being a liberal.
