Facebook: Candace Owens on ‘hate agents’ list, CrossFix exits over censorship, pro-life ad banned

Facebook maintains a list of “hate agents” for monitoring and potential termination, according to a source inside the company – a list which now includes Candace Owens. That’s not the only mention of Facebook in the headlines this week as CrossFit exits the platform.

CROSSFIT OUT

Fitness company CrossFit has left Facebook after it deleted a popular group “without warning or explanation” in a move that could indicate mounting backlash against the social media giant over privacy concerns, not to mention censorship concerns as well.

Facebook’s deletion and reinstatement of a meal plan group with 1.65 million users demonstrated to CrossFit Inc. that Facebook was abusing its “significant share of the marketplace of public thought,” according to a Thursday statement.

“CrossFit, Inc., as a voluntary user of and contributor to this marketplace, can and must remove itself from this particular manifestation of the public square when it becomes clear that such responsibilities are betrayed or reneged upon to the detriment of our community,” said CrossFit.

“To this end, all activity on CrossFit, Inc.’s Facebook and Instagram accounts was suspended as of May 22, 2019, as CrossFit investigates the circumstances pertaining to Facebook’s deletion of the Banting7DayMealPlan and other well-known public complaints about the social-media company that may adversely impact the security and privacy of our global CrossFit community.

CrossFit’s landmark statement slammed Facebook’s “de facto authority over the public square” while adding Facebook’s actions should concern anyone “engaged in activities contrary to prevailing opinion.”

“[The CrossFit community] stands steadfastly and often alone against an unholy alliance of academia, government, and multinational food, beverage, and pharmaceutical companies.”

IONA PRO-LIFE AD CENSORED

Facebook censored an advertisement run by the pro-life Irish Iona Institute because it used a medical image of a fetus as its photo.

contained an image of a fetal baby and the text “Still one of us” alongside it. After it ran for a short period on a three-day campaign, the image was censored by Facebook for containing violent or graphic content.

Speaking to Big League Politics, the Iona Institute explained they attempted to renew the three day advertising campaign, and their renewal was denied by Facebook without an explanation.

“Our post was initially accepted for a 3-day paid promotion,” said an Iona Institute representative. “When we tried to renew the promotion it was rejected but we didn’t get any notice from Facebook.”
