Facebook deleted policy allowing death threats against ‘dangerous’ people


If this isn’t Stalinism, I’m not sure what is. Facebook quietly removed their new policy which Paul Joseph Watson pointed out on his website.

On July 9, Facebook published another Community Standards update which stated: “Do not post: Threats that could lead to death (and other forms of high-severity violence) of any target(s) where threat is defined as any of the following:

Statements of intent to commit high-severity violence; or

Calls for high-severity violence (unless the target is an organization or individual covered in the Dangerous Individuals and Organizations policy)


As Watson mentioned, he is one of Facebook’s ‘dangerous individuals.’ That is how he, Milo, Laura Loomer were designated when they were banned. The only leftist banned was Louis Farrakhan but he’s back.

Following a backlash, Facebook has reportedly deleted the section that allowed violence to be incited against “dangerous individuals”.

“They now claim their language was “imprecise,” which is the Orwellian understatement of the century,” Watson wrote. Facebook deleted the page without explanation.

Daily Caller also has the story.

Aldous Huxley sure predicted much of what we’re dealing with now, from the advent of Ritalin etc., to the Tech companies and everything in between.

I read the details on the “Dangerous” list and it concerned terrorists etc. When Facebook wrote that policy they probably “assumed” it wouldn’t be an issue since they DID specify it. The problem is They DID label Paul Watson and others as “dangerous”. They exposed themselves because anyone on their platform will “assume” it DOES include Watson and others since they were labeled as such. So, the question IS; what kind of IDIOTS are working at Facebook to put out such a policy. When Watson and the Twitterverse exploded over this they must have realized how idiotically stupid this was.

That language was NOT “imprecise”. It’s unbelievable they would even make such a statement. To even make the statement “Unless” (unless the target is an organization or individual covered in the Dangerous Individuals and Organizations policy) this is “Precise”. You ARE ALLOWED to inflict HARM on certain individuals or groups. By the way, were the Proud Boys labeled “dangerous”. They, not indirectly, but directly called for anyone on their platform to commit a CRIMINAL ACT. In effect the sanctioned what Antifa did to Mr Ngo and the two others. Even those who “fit” their “Dangerous list” doesn’t absolve them or mitigate the illegal act. Private individuals are NOT allowed to commit vigilante acts and THIS is what Facebook sanctioned.

How about a new policy: All little rich brats should be head shot ASAP.
