You may well remember that on the same day Tommy Robinson was removed from Facebook many journalists who cover Tommy and/or are supportive of him were also purged until the intervention of Gerard Batten MEP and Donald Trump Jr changed minds.
However, Facebook‘s war on Tommy and Pravda-ish desire to airbrush him out of existence seems to be continuing. Activists in the UK still routinely complain of suspensions and bans and this is not a phenomena confined to the UK.
Katerina Janouch landed in hot water with Facebook Sweden for writing a short introduction to a piece published in her own online magazine, “Katerina Magasin”, by Madeleine Rönnqvist Lilja, on the subject of Tommy Robinson.
“Defending freedom of expression when you agree is a breeze, but if we are to have any freedom of speech worth mentioning, it must also be defended when it is challenged and not all agree.”
A perfectly reasonable point but one totally lost on Facebook who, lest we forget, is currently being fronted-up globally by Nick Clegg, a supposed liberal. So much for that famed liberal tolerance hey…..
