(NewsBusters) -- On Wednesday, Media Research Center President Brent Bozell and other conservative leaders called on Facebook to live up to its own standards when it comes to standing up to violent and extremist groups like Antifa. Bozell explained that “no action has been taken to de-platform this domestic terrorist organization.” He added that “Facebook is enabling these extremists to commit more violent acts and further spread their hateful message.”
Here are the statements by conservative leaders:
“The Antifa-led assaults in Portland this past weekend were not the first instance of violence from this militant-leftist group. Antifa’s core principles condone and encourage the harassment and physical assault of those that disagree with their beliefs. The Department of Homeland Security has classified their activities as “domestic terrorist violence.” Facebook has just come out with a major document outlining how some 90 leftist organizations under the leadership of former American Civil Liberties Union executive Laura Murphy and Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg will be overseeing the site’s content.
