article imageOp-Ed: Facebook — Damned if it does, damned if it doesn't

By Alexander Baron     Mar 24, 2012 in Politics
America's leading Nazi Harold Covington has been complaining of late that he keeps getting kicked off Facebook. Someone else is complaining for a diametrically opposite reason.
Harold A. Covington is quite a character; you can read all about him on this tribute site with the usual caveat emptor. Elsewhere, you can read about how he is an FBI informant - a view shared by the late Eustace Mullins - or even a rabbi, with an even bigger caveat emptor. Recently, Wicked Harold has been complaining in his mailings that the Jews - all of them? - keep getting him thrown off Facebook. No sooner has he opened a new account and friended a few people - Nazis have friends? - than he is zapped for promoting hate, etc.
This is probably not paranoia, there are indeed Jewish organisations and individuals who make a practice of hounding Nazis and fellow travellers both on and off the web, but let's not talk about the ADL or Gerry Gable.
While Wicked Harold is complaining about being banned though, someone else is pillorying Facebook for just the opposite. Facebook Racism and Apartheid: "Find and Connect with [White-Only!] Friends" is the latest offering from Mathaba. The Editor has added some comment to this: “Indeed, this advertisement, which we confirm has been seen around the world including across Africa and Asia, reveals the racism of Facebook. White people are a small minority in the world, but yes, hold most of the power for now.”
Yes, it is an advertisement, a racist advertisement? Not necessarily, why shouldn't one link only with white friends? Or black ones? Or people of one's own age? Or other librarians...? Is discrimination always such a terrible thing? Does this really amount to discrimination? A man who uses a women's toilet will be given short shrift if when he is dragged in front of a magistrate he whines about discrimination.
As for whites holding all most of the power in the world, tell that to Britain's two and a half million plus (mostly white) registered unemployed, the oppressed people of Greece or the Americans living in tent cities for that matter. They'll be just as mystified as Harold Covington to realise how powerful they are and how they are oppressing the rest of the world. Who was George Clooney protesting against when he was arrested outside the Sudanese Embassy last week, white oppressors? And don't let's even mention the falling white birth rate.
One final point, Harold, why would you want to join Facebook anyway? Don't you realise it is owned by Mark Zuckerberg, who is one of them? Or maybe not all Jews are bad, the same way not all whites are saints. Do you really prefer Communist fellow traveller Woody Guthrie to the flag waving Irving Berlin? Or the white FBI “suits” you rail against in your podcasts to Mark Zuckerberg and his fellow geeks, Kosher and goy?
