Despite its recent vow to ban white supremacist ideology and hate groups from its platform, Facebook refused to acknowledge that the content posted by well-known Canadian white nationalist Faith Goldy was against the company's renewed policies, a report by Huffington Post claimed.

The outlet claimed in a report that when it showed one of Goldy’s Facebook posts from March 31 to a spokesperson of the social networking site, he or she denied that the content promoted or praised white nationalism and instead said it talked about immigration and ethnicity statistics. As a result, the spokesperson claimed it did not violate the company’s rules on white supremacy.

The content in question was a video called “Race Against Time” in which Goldy rallied against people of color and Jews, adding that non-white immigrants were “replacing” white populations in multiple countries. As images of white women popped up on the screen, Goldy called on her followers to “help us stop this race from vanishing.”

“The Great White North is destined to become a majority minority country in less than a generation,” she said in the video. “Stateside, even with President Trump at the helm, the United States is not being spared from the ongoing relentless process of population replacement. … Whites will be a minority in America in less than a generation.”

In order to make a mockery of Facebook’s algorithm, Goldy captioned the video: “Despite my position as a staunch black nationalist, I think it's important to discuss the plight facing our PONC brothers and sisters.”

The same video was posted on Goldy’s YouTube channel, which has other videos with titles like “Black Power” and “Canada First: No Place For White Men.” When one clicks on the video, the message, “The following content has been identified by the YouTube community as inappropriate or offensive to some audiences,” appears, asking for the user’s consent to access it.

Goldy has a degree in politics and history from the University of Toronto. She received the Gordon Cressy Student Leadership Award by University of Toronto's Alumni Association in 2012. She worked as a reporter and writer for far-right news outlet The Rebel Media. Her contract was terminated after she appeared in an interview on The Daily Stormer, a neo-Nazi website.

In 2018, she was one of the candidates in the Toronto mayoral election. She lost to incumbent Mayor John Tory, Canadian outlet Narcity reported.

She was banned from sites such as PayPal and Patreon in March 2018, where she used to receive donations from her supporters. In a YouTube video, she said she received the following message from Patreon: “You recently sincerely recited the Fourteen Words on a podcast. At Patreon, we believe in freedom of speech and promoting diverse viewpoints- we want to create a platform that empowers creators to share and debate ideas. That said, we do not support exclusionary ideologies.”

She has over 100,000 followers on Twitter, and a following of nearly 40,000 on Instagram.

In a press release on March 27, Facebook said that while the company has always prohibited “hateful treatment of people based on characteristics such as race, ethnicity or religion,” it did not “apply the same rationale to expressions of white nationalism and white separatism because we were thinking about broader concepts of nationalism and separatism — things like American pride and Basque separatism, which are an important part of people’s identity.”

However, after realizing that there was an “overlap between white nationalism and white separatism and white supremacy,” the company had decided to revise the policy against hate speech. “Going forward, while people will still be able to demonstrate pride in their ethnic heritage, we will not tolerate praise or support for white nationalism and white separatism,” the release added.
