Facebook Deletes German Anti-Lockdown Organizations As New Censorship Guidelines Go Into Effect
Statements anti-lockdown groups posting “harmful health misinformation, hate speech and incitement to violence. “
This week, Facebook announced a new adjustment policy that seeks to deplatform groups who organize online and spread misinformation, dislike speech, and incite assault.
The new “ coordinated social harm” policy has been immediately used against 150 pages and groups linked to Germany’s Querdenken (Lateral Thinking) movement, which has routinely motivated resistance to government health restrictions and vaccines through anti-lockdown protests.
Facebook’s head of security plan Nathaniel Gleicher wrote in a blog update Thursday that will his team has been “ expanding our network disruption efforts so we can tackle threats that come from categories of authentic accounts coordinating on this platform to cause social harm. ”
Gleicher said: “ Today, we’re sharing our enforcement against a system of accounts, Pages and Groups operated by individuals associated with the Querdenken movement in Germany. ”
“ We removed a network of Facebook and Instagram accounts, Pages and Organizations for engaging in coordinated initiatives to repeatedly violate the Community Standards, including publishing harmful health misinformation, hate speech and incitement in order to violence. We also blocked their domains from being shared on our platform. This particular network was operated simply by individuals associated with the Querdenken movement in Germany, which is associated with off-platform violence and other interpersonal harms, ” he stated.
Gleicher said the new policy allows Facebook to do something against the “ core network” of a group that commits widespread violations. He stated individuals associated with the Querdenken movement regularly violated the platform’s terms of service simply by spreading health misinformation, inciting violence, bullying, and harassment.
Thursday’s action moves Facebook right into a more aggressive role since the judge of the “ brand new normal” in a post-COVID planet. They’re the deciders associated with right and wrong plus won’t let people with opposing views use their platform.
Thanks for visiting #NewNormal Germany, where Fb has just deplatformed 150 accounts of people opposing the new official ideology … because protesting the New Normal now qualifies as “Coordinated Social Harm. ” https://t.co/j1XY5mgcyf

We have previously talked about Facebook’s move to align by itself with pro-Biden media. It was found that the Biden Administration has routinely flagged anti-vaxx material to be censored by the social media company.
When it comes to politicians, celebrities, and other high-profile users from the platform (but not Trump), they’re given particular treatment in what appears to be a two-tier digital society where only leftist points of view could be expressed while everyone is deplatformed.
