Natural News was banned by Facebook over the weekend, causing founder Mike Adams to call for President Donald Trump to utilize military action versus the tech companies However we didn’t in fact know what moved Facebook to lastly prohibit the site. Facebook now says it banned Natural News for spam.
” We removed this Page for violating our policies versus spam,” a Facebook spokesperson told Gizmodo by email, supplying a link to the policy. The policy prohibits whatever from artificially increasing “distribution for financial gain” to utilizing phony accounts to impersonate other individuals and companies. Facebook did not elaborate on what specific part of the anti-spam policy Natural News breached.
However honestly, it does not matter what part of the spam policy finally got Natural News booted. It just seems truly odd that Natural News got banned by Facebook for spam rather of the many other things that the site does on an everyday basis. It’s a bit like when prohibition-era mobster Al Capone got arrested for tax evasion instead of for all those murders
Natural News, which had almost 3 million fans before it was prohibited on Facebook, spreads incredibly hateful content on the internet, preaching versus things like gay rights, the so-called “globalists,” non-Christian religious beliefs, and immigrants
And it’s not just dislike that Natural News frequently gushes out into the world. The website spreads conspiracy theories about myriad health problems surrounding 5G telecom devices, vaccines, and “cancer treatments,” among lots of other bullshit. Natural News frequently campaigns versus chemotherapy drugs in favor of these supposed cancer “cures” with no tested efficacy in dealing with cancer. Which’s the sort of false information that eventually gets individuals killed.
This is the website that released a DIY Ebola vaccine, for fuck’s sake. The “vaccine” even needed a live sample from an Ebola patient.
The actual guidelines for their injectable Ebola vaccine, with emphasis added:
What you require:
1. A face mask and gloves
2. Two bottles (50 ml as much as 500 ml glass or plastic bottles) with caps
3. Clean water (mineral or faucet water)
4. An Ebola sample: some spit or other illness item, such as blood, from an individual contaminated with Ebola, or who is presumed ill with it.
Any little amount will do, even a pinhead.
5. An alcoholic liquid, such as whisky, brandy, rum, and so on
6. Half an hour of your time.
The original post on an Ebola vaccine has actually been eliminated from Natural News, however you can see the directions at number 6 here
Once Again, we don’t understand exactly what part of Facebook’s anti-spam policies were breached. However it’s quite funny that spam is what lastly lowered Natural News– a minimum of on Facebook. YouTube and Twitter had banned Natural News much previously.
Possibly Twitter can take a lesson from Facebook in some respects. Twitter refuses to take down individuals like David Duke, previous Grand Wizard of the Ku Klux Klan, in spite of the holocaust denial he spreads daily. But perhaps Duke has actually violated some unknown Twitter policy about not looking like a corpse or some shit. It’s worth a shot.
