Facebook says it will allow Holocaust denial

We do not remove lies or content that is inaccurate," wrote Joel Kaplan, Facebook's vice president of global public policy.

(JTA) — Facebook will still allow users to deny the Holocaust even though it removed prominent bigots and anti-Semites from its platform.

The social media giant deleted the personal, professional and fan accounts of some leading extremists and conspiracy theorists, like David Duke, Louis Farrakhan and Alex Jones, on Thursday. But in a letter from April 9, Joel Kaplan, Facebook’s vice president of global public policy, said the site would still allow users to “say things on Facebook that are wrong or inaccurate, even when they are offensive.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This demonstrates, painfully clearly, that Facebook was after those people deemed "leading extremists and conspiracy theorists", so they were summarily deplatformed.

This was about getting those people off its site, rather than Holocaust denial, they were after, and this was simply the justification.

As Facebook continues with these policies, there is going to be a very rocky road between this blog... and those who believe that the First Amendment to the Constitution is granted to every American, even if one believes that what they are saying is flat-out wrong.
