Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, along with Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey and YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki have all made it clear that if you dare to challenge the orthodoxy concerning how the coronavirus is treated and or the vaccine that is currently being rolled out slowly, but surely all over the country, you’ll be criticized and booted from their platforms.
Unless, of course, you’re Nation of Islam Leader Louis Farrakhan. Then you get a free pass to say whatever you want.
According to a new report from BizPacReview, Farrakhan made a new video entitled, “COVID-19: The Virus And The Vaccine,” which is 2-½ hour video that’s featured on YouTube and is being linked from both Twitter and Facebook, despite the fact the Nation of Islam leader calls the vaccine a “vial of death.”
Farrakhan then goes on to compare the vaccine to the cyanide-laced grape juice that the Jonestown cult used to commit mass suicide.
“It’s death itself,” he reportedly says in one part of the film.
The tweet above was originally posted on the first of March and it is still online with zero censorship. There isn’t even a fact-check warning to push back against the disinformation/misinformation it contains.
When the social media giants were asked why this wasn’t being dealt with, none of them answered.
BPR speculates that one reason the post remains up is due to the fact that it hasn’t been seen by the moderators on all three sites. They then go on to note that this is highly unlikely.
After all, several posts on Twitter by other users have noted its misinformation. Surely someone over at Twitter would have noticed, right?
