If Facebook is good at one thing, it's censoring its users.
The social media platform has censored a rapidly growing Facebook group called "Stop the Steal," with more than 300,000 members, which is being used to organize in-person rallies at voting locations to demand correct ballot counting.
The page was set up only recently, and quickly grew to over 300,000 members in the space of 24 hours, as voter concerns about irregular activities at voting locations in key swing states escalated. Stop the Steal is also organizingthrough its own website.
The mainstream media ran several articles about Stop the Steal, attacking its members as purveyors of “misinformation” and criticizing Facebook for not censoring the page quickly enough.
One journalist even claimed, bizarrely, that allowing Republican voters to use Facebook to organize rallies in defense of fair elections would somehow lead to violence.
“Facebook is, once again, doing an absolutely atrocious job at curtailing election-related disinformation and violent rhetoric,” Rolling Stone reporter EJ Dickson posted on Twitter.
“Its history of being reactive rather than proactive may very well result in the platform having blood on its hands," he added.

The Center for Countering Digital Hate, a British-based NGO that pressures social media companies to censor conservatives, also demanded that Facebook take the page down.
In a comment to the media, a Facebook spokesman accused the group of trying to “delegitimize” the election process, and said some members of the group “called for violence,” without citing any explaining why the page was being held collectively responsible for the posts of such individuals.
“In line with the exceptional measures that we are taking during this period of heightened tension, we have removed the Group ‘Stop the Steal,’ which was creating real-world events,” the Facebook representative stated.“The group was organized around the delegitimization of the election process, and we saw worrying calls for violence from some members of the group.”
