Henry Kissinger decides what you can see on Facebook
You may have seen a story this week detailing how Facebook shut down a series of accounts. As noted by Politico, Facebook claimed these accounts "sought to inflame social and political tensions in the United States, and said their activity was similar -- and in some cases connected -- to that of Russian accounts during the 2016 election."
Taibbi says many of the pages look like "parodies of some paranoid bureaucrat's idea of dangerous speech". The last batch gave us Buff Bernie and Jesus arm-wrestling Satan, so i think they are a boon to society and just their on artistic contributions alone shouldn't be shut down.
But least one of the pages Facebook shut down was apparently taken over by legit activists organizing a counter-rally against white supremacists, so thanks for shutting that down, Facebook.
