Facebook said Tuesday that it had shut down pages and accounts associated with what it said was a hate group, whose members were discussing bringing weapons to the protests that are happening across the country.

The company said it had observed people associated with the group American Guard discussing such action. The group says it is about American constitutional nationalism, but the Anti-Defamation League says American Guard"has a background with connections to anti-immigrant extremism, hatred, and violence.

White supremacists pose as Antifa online, call for violence On Monday, Twitter said a fake Antifa account calling for violence was run by white supremacists. The company removed the account. The fake account, @ANTIFA_US, tweeted Sunday,"ALERT Tonight's the night, Comrades Tonight we say"F**k The City" and we move into the residential areas... the white hoods.... and we take what's ours #BlacklivesMaters #F**kAmerica.

You mean far-left groups?

👍🏻👍🏽👍🏿👍 The very sickening video of Floyd’s arrest, is by no means representative of the 375 million annual contacts that police officers have with civilians. Crime and suspect behavior, not race. determine most police actions.

Now do Trump Facebook !

Dont target hate groups alone! Hate speech is as bad! Try correcting realDonaldTrump and quit fooling around!

Delete your Facebook page. Everyone!!!!

Uh oh. Egg on Zuckerberg's face. He said he wouldn't do anything about fake accounts, political messages, and the like. Which is why his own employees are angry at him.

It was actually the NAACP posing again. Fake news!

CNN SUCKS

So funny how and the DNC just keep trying to push this bullshit of a narrative that it is “far-right” groups doing this. When it clearly is their pals AntifaDomesticTerrorists When they start getting locked up one after another soon. How will you spin it then?

Oh good! Mr Trump even talked about viscous dogs and weapons of such massive force the world has never seen. Thank you Zuckerburg...oh wait you weren’t talking about him?

AntoniaZ Did they turn the info over to the FBI?

My God! How they can go up to that ?

Would that be Trump's military police that attacked innocent protesters with gas, spray, batons and rubber bullets?

CNN you complain about police pepper spraying a protester but won’t show the video of a black man David Dorn being murdered on the streets during a STL riot? I saw the video and the fact that you are refusing to cover it... I have officially lost all respect for you as a network!

Stop your rating ! Stop your hating for trump! Save America and the America people

Maybe Bill Barr should investigate...

All the people who complain and disguise facebook on a daily basis are still on it.

Finally

FakeNewsCNN

By whose definition are far right? Facebooks? Yeah we know where this leads.

Good. Have they done the same to antifa?

Oh? Facebook *finally* does something good for once? Shame they tried to stop the Dotard from starting sht in the first place... Oh wait... that never happened 🙄

the second amendment exists to protect the people from the government and not the government from the people. it also exists, to paraphrase dave chappelle, in case the first amendment doesn’t work out. have these “patriots” even read the constitution?

Facebook said Hilary was in trial today!

STOP WITH THE FUCKING FAR RIGHT FALLACY... IF RACIST WHITE PEOPLE WERE IN THE MIX THEY WOULD HAVE ATTACKED A MINORITY OR A LEFTIST LIKE WHAT HAPPEN IN VIRGINIA.... I DONT BUY THAT BULLSHIT....

Zuckerberg is making himself Trump's beautiful banana boy.

claims without evidence that its far right groups

Fake news

Finally!

The shut down the president's account? Finally!

It doesn’t matter far-left or far right. Stopping the violence is what matters. The liberal media such as yours MSNBC to name a few, could use some work in covering the news “fairly.” In the future, you can start by covering issues that voters care about especially this year.

wow that's wonderful, I've been trying to get facebook to take down a profile harassing a public real estate agent for a month and they told me it was legit criticism even with a valid copyright claim and issuing DMCA take down notice.

And the far rights the problem in trumps eyes. Hes just a big pussy afraid that the far left will kick his ass up and down the streets and he won't be able to say you cant do that I have money. Hes destroyed this country enough its tim to get rid of him. Hes like 80.

It's a start.

Why are you excusing the fact that the police are being assaulted with bricks and Molotov cocktails by the “protesters?” I’ll wait.

Facebook if you can do this then it’s time to shut the President down with all his lies

Why haven’t you reported on the supplies of bricks strategically placed at sites of future protests? Not one word about it. Also - more importantly - when are you going to acknowledge the murder of DavidDorn ?

Hate Group = White Nationalists.

They are already doing that. There are pictures. But what about Antifa? They are a big part.

Why? If the politicians and police can’t fix this let them😳

Patriotism is the first step of racialism there’s no races only one race the human race

We are At War with Domestic Terrorists. Leave their pages Up so military and law enforcement can track their activity and use drone strikes to take them out. These are insurrectionists and must be confronted through use of force. Who is funding them? China? Russia?

Contact the VPN use Russia’s ICQ Viber.

Facebook says... Lol!!! Literally, no one believes Facebook!

I’m sorry but Facebook is facilitating this crap. I think we all need to think twice about these social media platforms. Do they bring joy or hate?

What's wrong with that,every protestor should arm themselves

🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

Wow!!! The panic is real!!

Yeah right!!! Soon as DeleteFacebook was trending 🤸🏾‍♀️

True. Who's arresting these looters?

They shut down a troll account with 21 followers, but the actual antifa accounts are still up and posting calls to engage in criminal activity.

'Protests?' You wouldn't be talking about the terrorist attacks (riots, looting, arson, assault) by any chance, would you? If yes, these aren't protests. It's terrorism. Stop supporting it .

Accounts of far far left AntifaDomesticTerrorists ?

Facebook don't forget my earlier tweet. Please make sure that you shut these accounts down as well.

Lies

Do they want a cookie? 🍪

DaveBautista Dave what have you done to support the black community? Fan of your wrestling, I wouldn’t consider myself a Democrat or Republican. But your tweets spreading hate aren’t doing anything to help the cause. Take action!

Report more of David Dorn’s death by the looter, CNN. Don’t let’s him just get buried. DavidDorn

CNN= Coomunist News Network

You mean the alt-right

no hate groups coming to my town..patriots of all race and color are here as protection

Far LEFT!

Mark is Resist now?🤔

More fake news lies. What they are really talking about, is their buddies, anquifa

Shut down for protecting the country!?

Trumpanzees at it again.

What happened to the Trump narrative that white supremacists were not involved in these riots?
