I in no way support The Proud Boys but damn, freedom of speech is under attack in America. I would never take away a person’s right to freedom of speech. Facebook has is making it their personal business to take away the freedom of speech. They already put a ban on the right-wing nutjob, “Alex Jones”. Now they are moving to ban The Proud Boys and this will likely continue to give the right the impression they are the only ones being attacked by mainstream media and social media.
This organization has ties to white supremacist groups and has recently been involved in a fight against liberals in Manhattan, NY.
The Proud Boys, founded by provocateur and Vice founder Gavin McInnes, mainly relies on Facebook as its primary recruitment tool.
“Our team continues to study trends in organized hate and hate speech and works with partners to better understand hate organizations as they evolve. We ban these organizations and individuals from our platforms and also remove all praise and support when we become aware of it. We will continue to review content, Pages, and people that violate our policies, take action against hate speech and hate organizations to help keep our community safe.”
