As readers of our news network are aware, Facebook and FB-owned Instagram took the extreme measure of banning “far-Right” figures last week including Alex Jones, Paul Joseph Watson, Laura Loomer and the Left-leaning, Jew-hating Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan.
The tech giant claimed that it was taking the action as part of a crackdown on “hate and violence.” But of course, ‘hate’ and ‘violence’ when it comes to Facebook and the rest of the Marxist-Leninist social media authoritarians is in the eye of the beholder.
Which would explain why only some people (of a particular — a-hem — political — a-hem — conservative persuasion — cough, cough) are being singled out for Facebook jail, persecution, and censorship.
But, as the U.K.’s Daily Mail notes, the platform is leaving up pages belonging to groups or individuals who advocate hate and violence directed at Christians, because — like whites — the Left has made it ‘fashionable’ to discriminate against Christians.
The paper noted online:
Facebook is allowing anti-Christian extremists freedom to peddle hate despite closing down accounts of far-right and anti-Semitic leaders, MailOnline can reveal.
The social media giant this week said it had shut down profiles belonging to Alex Jones and Milo Yiannopoulos [who] were thrown off Facebook, along with Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan and the white nationalist Paul Nehlen, saying they had violated its policies against dangerous individuals and organizations.
However, Facebook is being accused of massive hypocrisy — nothing new, really — “when hordes of anti-Christian fanatics and anti-Semites are allowed to function freely on the site despite a raft complaints,” the MailOnline reported.
Users noted that professional anti-Christian haters like Pakistani cleric Khadim Hussain Rizvi, the “spiritual leader” of a Muslim extremist organization Tehreek-e-Labbaik which is responsible for spreading anti-Christian hate rhetoric to thousands of its followers daily, are still active on the platform.
Rizvi staged very large demonstrations recently calling for the death penalty against Asia Bibi, a mother of five and a Christian who was accused of anti-Islam blasphemy by a court in Pakistan in 2010. She was sentenced initially to death by hanging but she was acquitted in 2018. He’s also praised the killings of other Muslims.

The director of the anti-racism group Faith Matters, Fiyaz Mughal, reported Rizvi to Facebook managers in November 2017 over fears he was stoking hatred among Pakistani communities in Britain and influencing people to do bad things. But Facebook did nothing — even now after its ‘anti-hate/anti-violence’ purge.
Rizvi is far from the only Islamic extremist using Facebook to promote anti-Christian violence and hate. Wael Aleji, who is associated with Wilberforce Alliance foundation, told MailOnline that Facebook has transformed into “a sewer of poisonous anti-Christian hatred and anti-Semitism.”
“Extremist groups like Hizb ut-Tahrir and the Muslim Brotherhood are very active on Facebook, both as organisations and as individual members,” he told the paper.
This comes as a British Foreign Office report found that Christians have become “by far the most persecuted” religious group in the world. And in some countries (many of them dominated by Muslims) Christians are being systematically exterminated — just the same as Hitler exterminated Jews during World War II, albeit by difference means.
Jewish groups have also logged many complaints about anti-Semitism with Facebook, and the platform did finally act against that hatred by banning Obama supporter and Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan.
But many more anti-Semites remain. One of them is Alison Chabloz, the Holocaust denier who was convicted of hate crimes last year, the paper said. Another is Gilad Atzmon, described as an “anti-Israel” advocate.
