LABOUR MP Tom Watson praised a move by Facebook to ban Tommy Robinson from the platform.
Labour, who has abandoned the working-classes and has now called for a Second Referendum will be happy with Tommy’s ban, as Tommy has more followers and likes than Labour or Jeremy Corbyn, Tommy connects with the working classes like Labour can only dream of.
Watson said: “I welcome Facebook’s decision to remove Tommy Robinson pages under their “Organised Hate” policy. But for far too long this violent thug’s hate-spewing, anti-Islamist tirades were given a platform by Facebook. Today’s decision comes far too late.”
TRUMP JR INTERVENTION
DONALD Trump Jr took to Twitter today to mock Facebook’s mass silencing of dozens of right-wing political voices and outlets found their accounts disabled.
Tommy Robinson’s page was taken down, that had over one million likes – more than any political figure in the UK.
It was not just Tommy who had been banned, thousands of his supporters were also banned, including big hitters like Raheem Kassam.
Along with Tommy’s page, accounts linked to admins of Politicalite UK were also disabled, meaning we lost access to our Facebook page for a short while – and were unable to post updates to our more than 40,000 followers.
Raheem Kassam tweeted: “What a thing to wake up to. My personal Facebook profile has been deleted, with no warning or explanation. I can no longer administer my fan page, with over 150,000 likes.”
Donald Trump Jr weighed in on the shocking censorship of political voices in both the UK and America and quoted Kassam’s ban from the social media network.
He said: “I’m sure this was an “accident” like I’ve been hearing from the social media masters. Funny that the accidents only happen one way.”
Kassam spoke to Politicalite, and said: “The routine censorship of conservative or right-wing voices has now reached more mainstream levels.” said Raheem.
“I am a main stage speaker at the largest gathering of conservatives in the world next week in Washington, D.C. If they can silence me, they can silence anyone”
Facebook, in a statement, said: “When ideas and opinions cross the line and amount to hate speech that may create an environment of intimidation and exclusion for certain groups in society – in some cases with potentially dangerous offline implications – we take action.
“Tommy Robinson’s Facebook page has repeatedly broken these standards, posting material that uses dehumanizing language and calls for violence targeted at Muslims. He has also behaved in ways that violate our policies around organized hate.”
Politicalite founder Jordan James, who is of mixed-race heritage slammed the move adding: “Removing Tommy, who is a key political figure and represents millions of working-class people across the UK is tantamount to foreign political interference and an attack on democracy.”
“Banning admins related to the Politicalite page and taking away our access is the direct suppression of free speech – and to highlight the ridiculousness of this move, take this – Facebook says that I promote ‘Hate Speech’ – but hang on a moment, I’m a queer mixed-race Jamaican guy – how can Facebook BAN me for being ‘racist’ and promoting ‘Hate Speech?’, those are TWO things i’m against given my background. This stinks.”
The move came after almost 850,000 people had watched Tommy’s expose on the BBC and Hope Not Hate.
Thousands turned up to watch Tommy expose the corporation outside their offices in Salford Quays.
“I call on Facebook to reinstate all of the accounts as soon as possible and I wish to re-state UKIP’s commitment to freedom of speech and expression. UKIP is the only party interested in genuine free speech and countering the politically correct MSM narrative. We are moving into a dark place in our national life, and if people are concerned, they need to support those who defend their traditional rights and freedoms.”
