Skip to comments.Three years later, Facebook says it will ban QAnon
Posted on 10/07/2020 5:13:28 AM PDT by DAVEY CROCKETT
In August, Facebook cracked down on thousands of accounts across Facebook and Instagram promoting the QAnon conspiracy theory, as well as a range of militia and anarchist groups, amid what the company said was a rise in behavior among those accounts and groups celebrating violence.

As others have said: The solution to bad speech is more speech.
Bad speech should be refuted not silenced.
Simply trying to remove bad speech (as they view QAnon) so it can’t be seen is simply sweeping it under the carpet.
Worse is that they (the Media such as CNN and Tech giants such as Facebook and Twitter) wish to supplant QAnon “bad speech” with their OWN bad speech, which I feel is far worse.
No censorship of BLM or Antifa, though.
Their violence is many orders of magnitude greater than anything perpetrated by the current targets of poncey Twitter and Fakebook.
Their hypocrisy is boundless.
I have banned Twitter and Facebook a couple of years ago and my hair hasn’t gone gray, blood pressure/heart rate is spot on and my flexibility is very good. I also sleep very well.
As of 2019, the FBI has designated QAnon as a domestic terror threat because of its potential to incite extremist violence. In spite of this, several U.S. congressional candidates for the 2020 November election proclaim support for the QAnon conspiracy.
If they really are serious about trying to stop misinformation they should start with banning CNN.

I’ve never had a Twitter or Facebook account. I’m glad I never did. But I wonder if retreating from social media is the best way for the next generation of conservatives to go. I don’t think so as it simply surrenders a huge forum to the Left. There must be alternative social media and places where the political Right can post videos and speak their mind freely.
You pinged JR? As in why FR shouldn’t be next in line in banning Qanon?
Portland’s Antifa is still on Fakebook, in spite of >100 nights of violent rioting.
The Commies are happy just yelling at each other. Let them.
Maybe their artificial intelligence software honed in on QAnon, as a key network in spreading information detrimental to the Democratic Party, during the election (traffic analysis). We know that they have been using AI to analyze users and meme flow, and they have been searching for ways to influence the election.
Maybe they particularly want to disrupt that network now, because of the declassification of Russiagate documents, to slow the development of any crowd-sourced insights, or their communication to the wider electorate.
It might have been part of a planned information war approach during the election generally, or iprepared as a contingency response to control/mitigate emerging scandal.
The FBI did not designate Q as a domestic terror thread. One field office in AZ made some kind of statement. Not the “FBI” as an entity.
Crockett is on the same team as Facebook.
No surprise there.
I am surprised you went for this as long as you did. Yes they did and the House voted last week to do more damage to Q. All Q ever had was pedophilia pictures and the democrat talking point.
