That's exactly what that cynical, robotic little prick is thinking.

Why should he be unbanned again? He's a terrorist leader. He deserves to be banned from the entire internet and medias for life.

Seems like handing a terrorist a wide public audience would make Facebook a national security threat.

If they do reinstate him, hopefully he can be provoked into spouting off about Dominion.

social media platforms are rented out store fronts.

The landlords reserve the right not to be hauled into a congressional investigation for harboring known instigators of persons known to have, of having been suspected of attempting a violent overthrow of our nation.

/ Like Trump

Apparently Bolsonaro is being propped up by the right wing cesspool on YouTube and thus protecting him from being impeached. I'm thinking all social media needs to be nuked from orbit.

/it's the only way to be sure

Given that Dan Bongino and Ben Shapiro consistently show up in their top 10 shared posts every week, they will make the financial decision to let him back.

Most of the people who would delete their account in protest of this have probably already done it by now for other reasons.

FB gives Trump his "privileges back I say we deplatform Facebook

Let Trump back on if he makes a sincere public apology. Never going to happen.

We should really Unban Bid Laden's account, he has a right to free speech.

Let's let AQ have a profile while they're at it.  They're responsible for far less American deaths than Trump is.

How can he be un-banned? He can't un-do what he did.

DrD'isInfotainment: FB gives Trump his "privileges back I say we deplatform Facebook


Facebook is deplatforming itself. By sucking up to the fringe right wing racists they have made themselves irrelevant to the majority of this country. Who still uses it? The elderly and the racists in the U.S. and then third world countries.

It's like Germany giving Hitler his own radio show after WWII.

Let trump back on after he commits sepuku live on tv and by let him back on, I mean, pictures of his corpse.

When Trump acknowledges Biden's victory, completely and without reservation, sure - let him back.

Then ban him again whenever he's stupid.

Trump can have his facebook account back when he turns over all of his tax papers so that his identity can be confirmed.

I'd say unban him.  Say, a week after he dies.  The Pete Rose route to the hall of fame.

Admit he did something wrong?

"My use of social media is not presidential."

Because you're not President anymore.

Be sincere?

I'd login to FB just to report that stupid bastard if he ever gets back on.
Fark that guy...
 
2021-04-16 4:39:41 PM  
I really don't miss his tweets, so... no. Please don't. Don't do that to people...

That would have been a lot of dead air though.

He either instigated or rolled with an attempted, albeit stupid, coup.

Why should he be unbanned?

Why is the oversight group from Facefark talking about this on Twitter?

My hunch is giving Trump back his social media will be their bit in trying to convince Congress not to regulate social media.  Trump's bully pulpit is seen by the social media companies as an ally to have to bully Congress.

It will likely work, unless the Dems grow a spine.
 
2021-04-16 6:07:17 PM  
I'm sure Trump learned his lesson by now.  Susan Collins told me he did as we were repelling down the side of Half-Dome on shrooms, and other ridiculously unlikely stories.
 
2021-04-16 6:08:12 PM  
If Facebook is going to give Trump a platform again, they need to post a substantial bond to indemnify the potential victims of any riots, insurrections. assaults, or other crimes committed under his exhortation.
I'd say at least a billion, for starters.
