“The videos in question were mistakenly removed,” Facebook said in a statement. “While we continue to research what caused this error, we have restored the content because it does not break our Community Standards and apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.”
Several PragerU videos were flagged as “hate speech” and removed, including a video on masculinity. PragerU is known for posting short educational videos that teach the fundamentals of conservatism, among other right-leaning topics.
While Facebook was investigating what caused the “mistake,” PragerU Chief Marketing Officer blasted the tech giant.
“This is very troubling behavior from the world’s largest social network,” Stazzerri said. “Not only are they obviously ratcheting up their algorithms to target mainstream, conservative content and labeling it as hate speech, but they are now completely blocking our posts from public view. This is shocking and it should deeply concern every single American.”
PragerU has filed a lawsuit against Google, which owns YouTube, for similar de-platforming.
The organization posted a tweet on Friday showing literally zero engagements, though the page has 3 million followers.
“Our last 9 posts are reaching 0 of our 3 million followers. At least two videos were deleted last night for “hate speech,” the post said. “SHARE to spread awareness about big tech censorship!”

Facebook replied saying the censorship was a mistake.
We mistakenly removed these videos and have restored them because they don't break our standards. This will reverse any reduction in content distribution you’ve experienced. We’re very sorry and are continuing to look into what happened with your Page.

PragerU proceeded to blast Facebook for the obvious lie.
“Removing two videos, marking them as “hate speech” and then subsequently censoring over 15 of our following posts to reach 0 of our 3 million followers is not a mistake. It’s deliberate censorship of conservative ideas,” the group said.

Silicon Valley has come under fire for the past two weeks for banning prominent conservatives from using their platforms.
Conservative radio show host Alex Jones was banned from Apple, Facebook, YouTube and Spotify in one day. Later, British free speech activist Tommy Robinson was banned from Instagram and co-founder of VICE Media Gavin McInnes was banned from Twitter.
Big League Politics contributor Laura Loomer was also temporarily suspended from Facebook.
YouTube Places Phony Snopes “Fact Check” On Joe Biden Search Results Claiming He Opposes Banning Fracking
Simply a political ad for the Democrat.
YouTube has implemented a “fact check” box on search results regarding Joe Biden’s policy positions towards fracking.
The “independent fact check” can be seen when anyone searches for “Joe Biden Fracking Ban” on YouTube.
The USA bogus “fact check” is in itself “misinformation.” Joe Biden does support banning fracking. He wants to outlaw any new fracking natural gas extraction projects. This would ensure the fracking industry itself would eventually die, as petroleum can only be extracted from existing fracking sites for so long.
Biden has increasingly claimed that he’s not for banning fracking, a petroleum extraction technique that is practiced in pivotal swing states such as Ohio and Pennsylvania.
Joe Biden has spoken about “transitioning away” from fossil fuels, and responded in the affirmative to a question about banning fracking. His Vice President, Kamala Harris, has spoken openly and more enthusiastically about banning fracking.
This is little more than a political ad- a false one- for the Democrat. YouTube is now in the business of providing in-kind editorial contributions to Joe Biden
Big Tech totalitarian oligarchs need to be stripped of every ounce of power they possess immediately after the election.
