Facebook is no longer hiding its political bias.
The social media giant banned Donald Trump and is actively censoring conservative voices, all while allowing the likes of Antifa and known terrorist organizations to continue to utilize the platform in any way they like.
Well, Facebook finally took action against the Taliban on its platform. But the timing is raising questions.
There is no doubt that Big Tech is trying to silence the Right.
It’s become a badge of honor for some to be banned from a platform.
And while most people understand that if you say something that doesn’t line up with the Biden administration, you’re likely to get shut out of your account for a time, most were unaware of just what type of people and groups were still being allowed to use Facebook.
Case in point, the Taliban.
The Taliban has used Facebook and Twitter for years to spread its hate-filled message worldwide.
Many have blasted the social media giants for allowing known terrorist groups to utilize the platforms, but it just fell on deaf ears.
Representative Dan Crenshaw of Texas blasted Twitter for allowing the terrorist group to have accounts on its platform.
“Hey @jack why does the Taliban get an account…? You see why Americans are pissed about your BS standards?” Crenshaw tweeted.
Of course, Twitter ignored Crenshaw and has never answered why they would allow the likes of the Taliban on its platform.
However, it seems that Facebook is changing its tune in light of the recent Taliban takeover in Afghanistan.
CNBC recently reported that Facebook has banned the Taliban and any content promoting the group from its various platforms.
The ban includes not just Facebook but also Instagram and the messaging app WhatsApp.
“The Taliban is sanctioned as a terrorist organization under U.S. law and we have banned them from our services under our Dangerous Organization policies,” a Facebook spokesperson stated.
Took long enough!
It’s no secret that the Taliban has been active on Facebook for a long time, so the ban’s timing is suspicious to many.
Facebook also announced they have a team of Afghanistan experts fluent in Dari and Pashto and will be alerting the social media company to emerging issues on the platform.
Meanwhile, Twitter has yet to ban the Taliban and has simply stated that they are monitoring the situation.
It’s nice to know that at least Mark Zuckerberg finds it important to keep actual terrorists off of social media.
As for Jack Dorsey . . .
