Facebook bans violent network of far-right boogaloo accounts

Facebook took action to remove a network of accounts Tuesday related to the boogaloo movement, a firearm-obsessed anti-government ideology that focuses on preparing for and potentially inciting a U.S. civil war.
As part of todays action, we are designating a violent US-based anti-government network under our Dangerous Individuals and Organizations policy and disrupting it on our services, Facebook wrote in the announcement. As a result, this violent network is banned from having a presence on our platform and we will remove content praising, supporting or representing it.
In its announcement, the company made a distinction between the broader and loosely-affiliated boogaloo movement and the violent group of accounts it identified and weve asked Facebook to clarify how or if it will distinguish between the two moving forward.
