It’s Facebook’s prerogative to censor the execrable Alex Jones and InfoWars. Despite what some people think, Facebook is a private company and they can do stuff like that.

But if they’re gonna go that route, they need to be prepared to get called out for their inconsistency:

Speech doesn’t get much more hateful than Louis Farrakhan’s. And yet, Facebook doesn’t seem nearly as concerned about Farrakhan regularly violating their hate speech rules.

The Daily Caller’s Peter J. Hasson reports:

Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan’s official Facebook page is rife with anti-Semitic conspiracy theories and other hateful speech, which have not been censored by Facebook content monitors, a Daily Caller News Foundation review of the page reveals.

Videos posted to Farrakhan’s Facebook page show the Nation of Islam leader claiming that Jews are secretly controlling government agencies to suppress black Americans, blaming Jews for “weaponizing” marijuana with “chemicals” to “feminize” black men, and warning against interracial marriage — which he blames on “the enemy” in Hollywood — to keep the black race “from being any further mongrelized.”

None of those videos violate Facebook’s rules prohibiting hate speech, a Facebook spokeswoman told The Daily Caller News Foundation in a phone interview Tuesday.

Fancy that.
