FACEBOOK REMOVES PAGES OF RIGHT-WING GROUP PATRIOT PRAYER AFTER PORTLAND UNREST
Patriot Prayer has hosted dozens of pro-gun, pro-Trump rallies, and attendees have repeatedly clashed with left-wing groups around Portland, Oregon, where one group supporter was killed this week.
Facebook Inc on Friday removed the pages of US right-wing group Patriot Prayer and its founder Joey Gibson.
According to Facebook spokesperson Andy Stone, it took down the pages as part of efforts to remove “violent social militias.”
The company updated its policies last month to ban groups that demonstrate significant risks to public safety.
