Lebanese-American conservative author and terrorism expert Brigitte Gabriel is also on an internal list of “Hate Agents” maintained by Facebook, Breitbart News can exclusively reveal.
Ms. Gabriel has been a guest on IFA’s First Friday Prayer Conference Call several times. We appreciate her strong faith and stalwart approach to challenging the misinformation of a politically correct, pro-Islam media. Our prayers with her are just as relevant today. Click the button to hear her pray and pray in agreement with her. In doing so, you can also see for yourself that she is not a “hate agent.”
Breitbart News exposed the existence of the “Hate Agents” list last week, after a Facebook insider leaked a partial screenshot showing black conservative leader Candace Owens was also on the list. The insider, who leaked the information to Breitbart, also shared a partial image of the list.
Following the leak, Facebook admitted that the list exists, but stressed that Owens had not yet been investigated.
More names and details about the list have since been leaked to Breitbart. Copies of the list obtained by concerned Facebook employees appear to have been updated in April, before the recent round of high-profile bans.
The list, an excel spreadsheet, features mostly right-wing figures and some left-wingers, along with examples of “signals” that suggest the individuals might be “hate agents.”
The signals are divided into Level One (signals that occurred in the past year), Level Two (two years) and Level Three (three years). Signals include hate speech, support for a “designated hate entity” or “designated hateful ideology,” calls for violence, the promotion of ethnostates, acts of violence from supporters, and possession of “hate paraphernalia.”
The spreadsheet also includes a “recommendations” field next to each individual name. In this field, Facebook employees can advise whether the individual should be categorized as a “Hate Agent” or not, and if they should be removed from the platform.
It is unclear who at Facebook oversees the designation of “Hate Agents.”… (Excerpted from Breitbart News article, by Allum Bokhari)
