The Latest Facebook Ban: An Article by Respected Author Phyllis Chesler Against radical ‘Feminism’
Yesterday we learned the legal term “illegal alien” was now banned on Twitter.
And #WalkAway founder Brandon had his Facebook page suspended for several weeks after he mentioned “Infowars” in his posting.
And now this…
Facebook blocked a post on “feminism” posted by author Phyllis Chesler.
Our betters in Silicon Valley will not allow any pushback on radical feminism.
Via Arutz Sheva:
Suddenly, Facebook, where I have 5000 “friends, would not allow me to pay them i.e. to “boost” some articles of mine (only for $10.00, never for more) because this work no longer met “community standards.”
Who instituted the Orwellian algorithms that refused to allow me to “boost” an op ed that I wrote and which RealClearPolitics titled: “How Multiculturalism Hijacked Feminism.” It took a long while for the algorithm to make up its mind.
Then, Facebook would not allow me to boost a review of my new book “A Politically Incorrect Feminist” which appeared in Medium and was written by a psychologist, Dr. Julie Ancis, who, ironically, specializes in diversity. Once again, the algorithim must have had to consult with Brother algorithims before rejecting my “ad.” This rejection also took time but clearly, I had fallen off the politically correct wagon.
I know that others—often significant, distinguished, and high profile others, have also reported having their pro-Israel and anti-Jihad material rejected in terms of “boosting” and were thus reduced to a smaller circulation. These days, being “anti-Jihad” is, wrongfully, considered the same as being “anti-Muslim.”
So, here’s what I just did. I titled my Rosh Hashana greeting thusly: “How Zionism Hijacks the Palestinian Narrative” and boosted it. Within two minutes, Facebook approved this.
Some Facebook friends were puzzled. Why had I, of all people, titled something in this way? Some did not know what “boosting” meant. Others cursed Facebook as “hypocritical Mamzers” and “twisted idiots” and vowed to circulate my posts widely.
