Last week Facebook and Instagram banned, the honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan from its platform.
The controversial Nation of Islam minister, was among several conservative voices banned from the social media platforms for being “dangerous,” according to Facebook’s ruling.
While there are some extreme voices dominating the social media platform, the same can be said for the voices and images on television. But because the media controls the narrative, they control the platforms.
Minister Farrakhan is the leader of the Nation of Islam which is considered a hate group. The Southern Poverty Law Center cited Farrakhan as “deeply racist, anti-Semitic and anti-LGBT.” Farrakhan’s Facebook page was deleted and all of its content purged from the social media giant’s servers, along with the social media pages of his religious organization.
“We’ve always banned individuals or organizations that promote or engage in violence and hate, regardless of ideology. The process for evaluating potential violators is extensive and it is what led us to our decision to remove these accounts today.”
