Facebook is banning far-right political commentator Faith Goldy, white nationalist crusader Kevin Goudreau and various extremist groups, the social media company said Monday.

The company said it has longstanding policies on extremist content and organized hate groups and is barring the individuals and organizations under its "Dangerous Individuals and Organizations" community standards policy.

Goldy's views have been described as far-right white nationalist. She was fired from Rebel Media in 2017 after taking part in a neo-Nazi podcast.
