Facebook ban on Alex Jones and others is a form of modern-day book burning

When social media platforms simultaneously banned Alex Jones last summer, I wrote that the decision was merely a “warning shot against dissent.” The latest Facebook bans against more conservative figures proves that point.

Facebook, citing company policies on “hate organizations,” has now banned Infowars, Alex Jones, Milo Yiannopoulos, and Louis Farrakhan, among others. If that was not bad enough, now even merely posting a link to Infowars content could get you in trouble, too.

When I criticized the earlier bans against Jones, I prefaced it by saying that I was not a fan, lest anyone assume my words were tantamount to an endorsement of his content or opinions. But there should be no need for such a semi-apologetic disclaimer. This is straight-up censorship and it should be condemned, regardless of anyone’s personal feelings toward the targets.
