Zuckerberg Admits Facebook has Been Slow to Take Down Pages From White Militia Groups


Julia Louis-Dreyfuss made a joke about it last week when emceeing the Democratic National Convention last week. “If we all vote, there is nothing Facebook, Fox News and Vladimir Putin can do to stop us,” she said. 

Facebook has been somewhat problematic politically over the years. White Nationalist groups have also used the site to organize violence.

Earlier this week, a teenager named Kyle Rittenhouse shot 3 people in Kenosha, Wisconsin killing two of them. While there were militia calls to “defend Kenosha” it is not known yet whether one of these calls inspired the teen to Kenosha.

Following the shooting, journalists zeroed in on a post from a group called Kenosha Guard. The post, published on , asked, “any patriots [are] willing to take up arms and defend our city tonight from the evil thugs?”

Facebook employees are furious and unloaded on Mark Zuckerberg during an all-hands meeting yesterday over his handling of QAnon and a Kenosha militia page that remained online after a shooting that killed two people. Here's my dispatch from inside: read more

Joe Biden has once again criticized Donald Trump for his failure to denounce white supremacists. The Democrat has often said that’s the reason he got into the presidential race.

I don’t know enough to know whether that 17-year-old kid did exactly what he did, but allegedly he’s part of a militia coming out of the state of Illinois,” Biden said of accused killer Kyle Rittenhouse. read more

WATCH: Chris Wallace Shuts Down Fox Hosts for Supporting Vigilante Violence

On Tuesday night, a 17 year-old named Kyle Rittenhouse shot 3 people in Kenosha, Wisconsin, killing two of them. On Wednesday, the teenager was arrested for his actions.

While the exact circumstances of the event are unknown, Conservative media was quick to make Rittenhouse out to be a hero. Tucker Carlson claimed that his actions were necessary. Ann Coutler said that she wanted him to be the next President of the United States.

And today on the Fox News’ show, Outnumbered, host Katie Pavlich said, “The argument of vigilante justice, when you have no police around to defend businesses and people who are being attacked, and their livelihoods burned to the ground, there is a void that is filled.”

When Chris Wallace was brought onto the show, he immediately addressed Pavlich’s comments. “I’ve got to push back on something we said at the end of the last segment because there seemed to be the implication that somehow vigilante justice was understandable or justified by the lack of sufficient police action and authority and presence in some of these cities.”

After push back from the show’s hosts, Wallace continued:

“Just as it is fair to say that rioting and looting is a completely inappropriate response toGeorge Floydor Jacob Blake, vigilante justice is a completely inappropriate response to the rioting in the street. There is no justification for what happened in Kenosha and vigilante justice is a crime and should be punished as a crime.” read more
