Some are banned by social media outlets like Facebook and Twitter.   Click the "Extremism" link to see a few of them and commentary about extremism on the internet.   This page will not be linking to racial supremacists sites or those overtly advocating sedition against the United States.

banned
a far-right conspiracy theory and movement centered on false claims made by an anonymous individual or individuals, known by the name "Q", has been described as a cult with roots in antisemitism and Nazism. - Wikipedia

Donald Trump's been banned from FB and Twitter for content in violation of their Community standards.  He has founded his own media outlet.   Here's what Wikipedia says about his venture, which is likely written by those associated with Trump's new venture to stay relevant in American political life.


Claimed as a Twitter alternative, it has a significant user base of Donald Trump supporters, conservatives, conspiracy theorists, and far-right extremists. Posts on the service often contain far-right content, antisemitism, and conspiracy theories such as QAnon. --Wikipedia

Alex Jones Infowars  FB
An American far-right radio show host and highly prominent conspiracy theorist. He hosts The Alex Jones Show from Austin, Texas, which the Genesis Communications Network syndicates across the United States and online. Jones' website, InfoWars, promotes conspiracy theories and fake news --Wikipedia

Wokism.      The right's worst enemy; Wokism ls a liberal, politically correct, all inclusive movement mostly pushing diversity that's hijacking universities, even corporations.

Trump Media Manipulation
Note MSNBC, CNN and FOX "All Politics/Virus...All the Time" networks aired President Trump's daily electioneering 'virus newsconference.' He is a master at manipulating the media--omnipresent, fidgeting, moving around, nodding, distracting.

Understandable that FOX (TrumpTV) carries them beginning to end, but why didn't the other two just carry the virus/physician advice instead of Trump's long, rambling, bragging for two hours like Putin and Kim Jung Un do many days? MSNBC and CNN gave him millions of dollars in free airtime during the 2016 election as well. That was THEN. Trump, who refuses losing the election, not calls himself "45th President Donald Trump," not "FORMER President Donald Trump."

Since January 6th, Trump's favorite method of communication became his Twitter account and then Facebook. Both social media sites suspended his accounts for inciting the riot that cost six deaths.

Editor's advice, be careful to protect your personal identity when writing public comments on controversial political issues in this era of political division.

This caution is more important now that private research firms offer--for a small fee-- the ability to easily find out a great deal about you with internet search engines. They can find your vulnerabilities, including your home location, your parents', children's, etc. This would not be the problem it is. if FB would change its policy to allow a 'public' name (username - nickname - nom d' plume) that is slightly different than easily found public legal names and addresses.
