Facebook "outsourcing responsibility" to Oversight Board to rule on Trump ban, critics say

The Oversight Board created by Facebook will issue a decision on President Trump's removal from the platform Wednesday morning, May 5.

DO NOT allow this motherfucker back on Facebook.

Why the fuck should anyone even care? Are we supposed to think of Facebook like a social credit score now?

See, when your old, white, and filthy rich they just let you do it. Whatever you want. All of it.

R1. We should care because for one thing, the silence of Trump the asshole the past few months has been heaven.

Secondly and more importantly, we cannot give this lying treasonous corrupt monster a platform to continue his campaign of lies and the opportunity to rile up the Repigs, deplorables and insurrectionists. And we should never give Trump a platform to help launch a political comeback or another presidential campaign for him or any of his sycophant destructive followers.

You don't have to be a supporter of Trump to think that allowing a social media company that effectively controls all mass communication can effectively target anyone whose views they don't like.

People should organize a mass exodus from Facebook if he’s allowed back.

Someone get on it. I have things to do.

Good. People should have done so long ago. Yet they're still either on Facebook or Instagram in huge numbers.

R5 you’re missing the point. Freedom of Speech does not include daily phone calls to the theatre to warn of a bomb being placed there. Giving Hair Furor a platform is tantamount to yelling “Fire!” in a theatre on a daily basis.

'People should have done so long ago. Yet they're still either on Facebook or Instagram" - suggest alternatives we can start moving to before quitting.

There are no alternatives.

R8 No, I think you're missing the point. If they can target a former president of the United States, then no one is safe. You only support them now because you're on their side regarding Trump. However, make no mistake, Facebook is not on your side. But I guess you'll figure it out when it's too late.

A politicians article "The Facebook Ban Hurt Trump in Surprising Ways. MAGA world still loves him, but it doesn’t hear him with the same force it used to. How long before that begins to erode his support?"

What say you? No. Not posting the article. Your thoughts are as good as theirs.

Our elected officials lied about Covid for months in order to not panic the public. Perhaps we shouldn't penalize people for telling the truth even when it is inconvenient or interfered with corporate interests.

And maybe you’ll eventually figure out the US Constitution R11 and R13. Freedom of Speech is not absolute, nor does it mean freedom from the consequence of said speech. No one is hindering Trumputin’s speech. He repeatedly violated Twitter and Facebook TOS. He received the consequence for that like we all would have. He is free to advocate for the violent overthrow of our duly elected government on Parker or other fascist platforms.

Facebook owes no one a platform, R11. Trump, or anyone who doesn’t like Facebook’s policies, is free to seek alternatives.
