People raised questions about Facebook rules regarding banning white supremacy but not white nationalism. These rules were released last summer.

Is Facebook right in doing this? Why or why not?

Facebook is working with the elite to implement opposition to free speech in the U.S. My last account was banned for simply stating the discrimination is choice and freedom.

It really ticks me off when a post all of a sudden disappears when in tactful manner speaking open how they feel about a government mandating a substance be put in their body or loose their job! We the people should be able to see and hear about these happenings!

I just reported a number of OVERT Nazi, WhitePower crap on FB and got brushed off when I reported it. Facebook is a sewer of Nazi crap, it's just"free speech"? Can't wait for an alternative to FB. It's deplorable.

So I can be subject to offensive racist derogatory comments but if I take a stand my comment is deleted?? Leave the other person but remove mine?? Also, I have noticed if you report a few comments of a similar nature but one is milder than the other, the weaker one is deleted and the others are left! Stop this foolishness FB. This kind of thing exposes you for what you are.

Would you provide a link to the list of post/videos you identify as unsafe to the community?

I was suspended from Facebook for 30 days for stating historical facts. they said it was hate speech and no one would answer my emails. They're trying to get rid of our first amendment rights.

There is no such thing as hate speech. Just because one person doesn't agree with it doesn't mean it's not true.

I have reported hundreds of hate speech posts, fake news, outrageous Nazis , you name it. Not once has FB ever removed one single thing. TOS is a huge lie. All FB cares about is the money they get spreading hate on the web.

The only hate posts facebook allows is if they are aimed at white people and Trump. Everything else is taboo, IMHO!

What a f-ing joke. Your platform is full of the most vile language, hate speech and violence and the efforts have been insignificant improvement. Hate speech against women is rampant and ubiquitous. Trolls and other malicious actors are rampant. The platform can hardly be used by decent people who don't want to be submerged in a cesspool.
