Right-wing journalists Erel Segal, Yinon Magal and Shimon Riklin, announced that they have decided to boycott Facebook and that they have no intention of posting any more on the social network.
The three posted an identical tweet on their Twitter accounts, saying: “Instead of being a platform of content, Facebook wants to tell us what is allowed and what is forbidden to think and to express a position on. As Orwell described in the book 1984 how erasing words is meant to erase ideas – Facebook does this most often to the Right.”
“As long as that’s the situation”, the three announced, “we will no longer post on Facebook”. They also wrote that “whoever thinks like us is welcome to join us and not give a hand to the thought police.”
The three did not mention a specific incident that led them to make this decision, but apparently this is about (Facebook) blocking the user (Riklin – DM) who this week posted about Lehava chairman Benzi Gopstein.
