Facebook, Louis Farrakhan, Laura Lumine Milo Yiannopoulos discussed on WMAL Programming
Stuff. Create jobs. A message from goodwill and the Ad Council. Joining us now where he in Kasane the editor in chief of human events. Rahim? Welcome back to mornings on the mall. Great to have you. Okay. Me so much for having Brahimi have an interesting piece on human events dot com entitled day of the long knives. And it's all about Facebook deciding to ban certain people, and they say, it's not alright people even though it's Alex Jones and Laura Lumine Milo Yiannopoulos, you know, also Louis Farrakhan, apparently Louis Farrakhan has been banned because his antisemitic. So my question to you is has Ilhan Omar also been banned for being antisemitic. If goals, not in fact, most onto semi bag on Facebook be by. Louis Farrakhan was was assault. It was a it was a a move from Facebook to try and show that that will be targeting the political with some ship online. Should I never thought? I'd say it's in my life, married. I I feel sorry for news five upon because he actually not even been banned on his own merits. He's been banned as a result of Facebook wanting to do the PR to size of their own surrounding the just foray into something down either right wing all radical or independent minded souls. And I really do believe that this is this is reaching some. Canary levels. Now, I mean, that's why we use the headline day of the long knives. Which course is in the luge into the of the long knives Jin Nazi Germany now, obviously, you know, banning people from Facebook the same thing as murdering them, but this theory of silence Sima position the theory of silencing of people who don't go along with the status quo these executive fitful face this folding into and now there are some very very serious conversations. They had had the very highest levels of government about what happens to big Tex monopoly because let's face it, the digital square and the public square, and now inseparable we've corporates to rule the roost by saying you can talk, and you may not talk is incredibly. What was yeah. I'm I tend to be in your camp on this for him in so far as I think that you know, if you have a noxious viewpoint I'd rather it be met with. Create viewpoint. So that you can hash it out and have a conversation rather than sort of forcing this type of conversation into an internet ghetto where a calcified and actually gets worse, and it's kind of ice elated, and that's not good for anybody. But when it comes to Facebook interests, I'll take up for them for just a moment for the sake of argument, Facebook, maybe looking at this from the perspective of, hey, there are things that are risks to our business. And if we allow noxious opinions opinions, we disagree with to flourish on our platform that we will be held accountable for the forces of sort of liberal culture will punish us for that. And we've got to look out for our business interests. So it's time to start banning people. What do you think of that? We should that that logical. I mean that was that was the case, Facebook and Instagram all these other platforms would've been should have long ago banded counts of harass and the Muslim Brotherhood and other organizations like that. Well, this is a barrel. He's actually using control over us base. At the moment. Facebook is in a position now where it's it's average user is getting older and older, and they don't picking up young event and in an attempt to solidify Powell around that existing base. They want to take away from people who were affected critics events. They're gonna think away from people who use that against them. And the problem is they've spent a lost decade or so cooling themselves up platform rather than a publisher. And now, they're taking it's horrible. On that site. Well, that means news government protections already in place on the section. I think two of the Communications Decency Act that means that people like my Milo or Alex Jones. What's any more Luda and Olins on the talks who've been bang and often which suspended as well? In fact, headed back and forth with a human being Facebook over Email, quite strange to get an Email from McEwen being face. But usually it's algorithm, but they wanted to be hey, anything anymore this criticism of of liberal mentality. And we're gonna hate speech, and we're gonna take you. I'm sorry. Can you can you explain that running all tight? Can you explain that for us? You said you had a communications Facebook was it based on this article that we're talking about right now. No. In fact, it was based on a post made eleven years ago that they are just dug up. Nothing and emails me about and said if you don't take it down, we'll take it out. Also, what's the difference than what you just take it down? I it was it was a very mild opposition to the theory of transgenderism all I said was I believe men can be women. Okay. And and, you know, see me if you want, but but they said that constitutes hate speech. Now, again, that means it's all that my page human beings now truly through my old post trying to find reasons to take me, and I find that incredibly a wedding, which is you know, if you don't mind, Vince, which is why we recently set up human events dot com because we know that if we don't settle for platforms. I'm visting couples which run by sociopaths and hyper extreme liberals in Silicon Valley. We'll make sure the people like us kennel speak anymore. Brahim? We appreciate you sharing this with us.
