For those of you who have been following the progressively authoritarian nature of the major social media platforms, you were shocked — but not surprised — to learn last week that Alex Jones, Infowars, and a number of high-profile conservatives were completely “de-personed” from Facebook and its subsidiary, Instagram.

As NewsTarget reported Friday, “Without warning, Facebook on Thursday unilaterally banned several people from its platform that the speech Nazi has deemed ‘controversial’ and, as such, not worthy of being heard.”

Specifically, Jones and Infowars along with one of his former editors, YouTube star Paul Joseph Watson, former Breitbart News tech editor Milo Yiannopoulos, conservative Jewish activist Laura Loomer, and others were also shown the virtual door by Facebook after the platform labeled them “extremists” and “dangerous.”

To make it look like it was a ‘bipartisan’ ban, Facebook also deplatformed well-known anti-Semite Louis Farrakhan, but conservatives weren’t fooled into believing that Mark Zuckerberg, the founder of Facebook, was really ‘cleaning house.’

“The geniuses at Facebook really believe they won’t get accused of bias if they ban Farrakhan as well. But the fact that they consider a brazen anti-Semite and racist in any way comparable to classical liberals and populists like @PrisonPlanet just shows their bias even more,” writes senior Breitbart News tech correspondent Allum Bokhari.

Facebook’s extremist measures directed at Jones, Infowars, and PJW drew the attention and ire of our country’s most famous and powerful citizen: President Donald Trump.

“So surprised to see Conservative thinkers like James Woods banned from Twitter, and Paul Watson banned from Facebook!” the president wrote in a tweet.
