Skip to comments.Facebook’s Secret “Hate Agent” Formula Leaked by Insider
Posted on 06/18/2019 5:02:42 AM PDT by Windflier
An internal Facebook document reveals that the social media giant monitors its users offline behavior as part of how the company determines whether a person should be classified as a Hate Agent, according to Breitbarts Allum Bokhari who has reviewed the document.
Titled Hate Agent Policy Review, the document reveals that Facebook employs a series of signals which include a persons behavior both on and off the platform. Once determined to be a hate agent, a person is banned from the platform.
If you praise the wrong individual, interview them, or appear at events alongside them, Facebook may categorize you as a hate agent.
Facebook may also categorize you as a hate agent if you self-identify with or advocate for a Designated Hateful Ideology, if you associate with a Designated Hate Entity (one of the examples cited by Facebook as a hate entity includes Islam critic Tommy Robinson), or if you have tattoos of hate symbols or hate slogans. (The document cites no examples of these, but the media and anti-racism advocacy groups increasingly label innocuous items as hate symbols, including a cartoon frog and the OK hand sign.)
Facebook will also categorize you as a hate agent for possession of hate paraphernalia, although the document provides no examples of what falls into this category. Breitbart
Facebook may even brand someone a hate agent for statements made in private but later made public, according to the report.
This piece by @LibertarianBlue is insane.@Facebook monitors your OFFLINE behavior to decide if youre a Hate Agent via:
who you were seen with
comments about immigration
if you are NEUTRAL about someone
things you say IN PRIVATEhttps://t.co/qXnWyRkFOp

Bokhari also notes from his previous reports that Facebook categorized right-wing pundit Paul Joseph Watson as hateful in part because he interviewed British activist Tommy Robinson on his YouTube channel. Similarly, prominent conservatives Candace Owens and Brigitte Gabriel are on the list, along with UK politicians Marie Waters and Carl Benjamin.
The Benjamin addition reveals that Facebook may categorize you as a hate agent merely for speaking neutrally about individuals and organizations that the social network considers hateful. In the document, Facebook tags Benjamin with a hate agent signal for neutral representation of John Kinsman, member of Proud Boys on October 21 last year.
Facebook also accuses Benjamin, a classical liberal and critic of identity politics, as representing the ideology of an ethnostate for a post in which he calls out an actual advocate of an ethnostate. Breitbart
Facebook divides hate speech into three tiers depending on the severity of the offense;
Tier 1 attacks, which target a person or group of people who share one of the above-listed characteristics or immigration status (including all subsets except those described as having carried out violent crimes or sexual offenses), where attack is defined as
Any violent speech or support in written or visual form
Dehumanizing speech such as reference or comparison to:
Insects; Animals that are culturally perceived as intellectually or physically inferior; Filth, bacteria, disease and feces, Sexual predator, Subhumanity, Violent and sexual criminals, Other criminals (including but not limited to thieves, bank robbers, or saying all [protected characteristic or quasi-protected characteristic] are criminals); Mocking the concept, events or victims of hate crimes even if no real person is depicted in an image.
Tier 2 attacks, which target a person or group of people who share any of the above-listed characteristics, where attack is defined as; Statements of inferiority or an image implying a persons or a groups physical, mental, or moral deficiency; Physical (including but not limited to deformed, undeveloped, hideous, ugly); Mental (including but not limited to retarded, cretin, low IQ, stupid, idiot); Moral (including but not limited to slutty, fraud, cheap, free riders); Expressions of contempt or their visual equivalent, including (but not limited to) I hate, I dont like , X are the worst , Expressions of disgust or their visual equivalent, including (but not limited to), Gross , Vile , Disgusting , Cursing at a person or group of people who share protected characteristics
Tier 3 attacks, which are calls to exclude or segregate a person or group of people based on the above-listed characteristics. We do allow criticism of immigration policies and arguments for restricting those policies.
If you have done any of the above over the past two years, Facebook considers it a hate signal.
Basically it’s what China is doing with their social credit score.
Not just China. The EU is doing it, too.
This policy, if true, has to be enforced by people. Who, in turn, are likely to be highly political, and since its FaceBook, relentlessly leftist.
Link? I haven’t heard any them doing it.
Bertelsmann’s Arvato unit has been doing it for at least a couple of years now. Do a search using the words: Arvato censorship.
And don't forget the recently approved Articles 11 and 13 in the EU...
That was a funny episode but...it is a little less funny and starts generating that "funny" feeling (as in unease) when you realize just how close we are to having elements of this today. The writers basically took today's society and just exaggerated a few aspects...but not all that much...
Interesting timing on that, now that I think about it....
Wonder if it’s related to Trump/Spygate in any way....
Those named as hate agents should sue for libel. It worked very nicely for Gibson’s bakery against Oberlin.
Candace Owens and Bridgette Gabriel are on it.
Pepe the frog and the Ok hand signal are hate signs.
Any of us that are still on fb are probably on the list. I quit a couple of years ago.
As usual, they call us Nazis, while they act just like Nazis.
Accuse others of what you yourself are doing.
A web search for the above phrase bring some interesting results.
Seems to be some disagreement as to the source for that. Goebbels, Alinsky, Marx - Probably all three.
So basically, if you disagree with, or disapprove of, or perhaps even aren’t enthusiastically jubilant over the left-wing snowflake sjw idiocy du jour, then you are a hate agent. Got it.
How does one even become such a fearful pussy in such a powerful position?
So how do they monitor people when not on the platform?
Especially if as here people use pseudonyms?
Pre-crime. Just waiting for Tom Cruise and the MiB to rappel down out of the black helicopters.
