I saw this coming during the Charlottesville riot two years ago. Mainstream media talking heads began mentioning the terms “white nationalists” in the same sentence with “white supremacists,” even though the terms are as distant, by definition, as “car” and “cheesecake.”
At first, I thought it simply so many more examples of the morons mainstream media hire to report the news. But, it was more than that. Much more.
As the days and weeks passed, it became apparent to me that mainstream media’s intentional mistake was a deliberate attempt to make the terms “white nationalist” and “white supremacist” synonymous in the eyes of the viewing/reading public.
So, it has come to pass. Facebook has announced a ban on the speech of white nationalists (actually synonymous with “patriots” who happen to be white), claiming that they are nothing more than white supremacists.
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Facebook is extending its ban on hate speech to prohibit the promotion and support of white nationalism and white separatism.
The company previously allowed such material even though it has long banned white supremacists. The social network said Wednesday that it didn’t apply the ban previously to expressions of white nationalism because it linked such expressions with broader concepts of nationalism and separatism — such as American pride or Basque separatism (which are still allowed).
So, the clowns at Fascistbook actually had one right the first time. American “nationalism” is synonymous with “American pride,” i.e., “patriotism.” Now, the social media Nazis have come full circle, completing their mission of linking American patriots who happen to be white with white supremacists, just as was the plan from the beginning.
White supremacists are garden variety bigots, racists. White nationalists are patriots. Now Fascistbook has succeeded in painting all American patriots who happen to be white as white supremacists, but only with those stupid enough to believe them, literally tens of millions of brain-dead leftists who enjoy no capacity to think on their own.
But civil rights groups and academics called this view (not linking white nationalists with white supremacists) “misguided” and have long pressured the company to change its stance. Facebook said it concluded after months of “conversations” with them that white nationalism and separatism cannot be meaningfully separated from white supremacy and organized hate groups.
If you consider yourself an American patriot, you are now on notice that you have no First Amendment rights at Fascistbook. You can be banned at any time, as I was in October, 2018 for the crime of “violating community standards,” i.e., being an American patriot. Patriotism is not welcome in Silicon Valley.
Critics have “raised these issues to the highest levels at Facebook (and held) a number of working meetings with their staff as we’ve tried to get them to the right place,” said Kristen Clarke, president and executive director of the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law, a Washington, D.C.-based legal advocacy group.
“This is long overdue as the country continues to deal with the grip of hate and the increase in violent white supremacy,” she said. “We need the tech sector to do its part to combat these efforts.”
Though Facebook Inc. said it has been working on the change for three months, it comes less than two weeks after Facebook received widespread criticism after the suspect in shootings at two New Zealand mosques that killed 50 people was able to broadcast the massacre on live video on Facebook. Also on Wednesday, a man convicted on state murder charges in a deadly car attack at a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, pleaded guilty to federal hate crime charges. The bloodshed in 2017 prompted tech companies to take a firmer stand against accounts used to promote hate and violence.
Did you see what was done there? Now, AP has joined the chorus, labeling the gathering of white supremacists in Charlottesville as “a white nationalist rally.” From what I recall of the tragic incident of the liberal female being run over by the young man in Charlottesville, many screaming, violent leftists were pummeling the man’s car and he floored it in fear for his life and the young woman was run over. Now, he has “pleaded guilty to federal hate crime charges.”
But apparently not enough. Now, Facebook is trying to do more. As part of Wednesday’s change, people who search for terms associated with white supremacy on Facebook will be directed to a group called Life After Hate, which was founded by former extremists who want to help people leave the violent far-right.
Clarke called the idea that white supremacism is different than white nationalism or white separatism a misguided “distinction without a difference.”
“Nationalist,” according to Oxford Dictionary: “A person who strongly identifies with their own nation and vigorously supports its interests,” or, as the left now defines it, a “white supremacist.”
How long before people are jailed for reciting the Pledge of Allegiance?
Be very afraid, patriots. The left will use every means at its disposal to silence you. That is the first step in your ultimate removal.
BREAKING: Facebook banning "praise, support and representation of white nationalism and separatism on Facebook and Instagram," because that "it’s clear that these concepts are deeply linked to organized hate groups and have no place on our services." https://t.co/D57H0kWYWC

Yet Farrakhan called Jews termites the week before the Pittsburgh Synagogue Shooting and is still allowed on Facebook.
