Facebook banned the popular conservative page ‘Uncle Sam’s Misguided Children’ and then proceeded to ban the page’s creators until after the 2018 midterm elections, taking actions the page’s staff calls election meddling.

Following up on its latest purge of over 800 Facebook accounts and pages in early October, Facebook banned ‘Uncle Sam’s Misguided Children,’ another prominent conservative page that had over 2 million ‘likes’ and claims to have reached over 33 million residents of the United States weekly prior to the ban.

In a video video posted to their new Facebook page, the creator and admin Rick Ferran calls the ban politically motivated.

“It’s so important that [Republicans] take over both House and Senate,” Ferran explained, “They don’t want that, so they will censor us, they will find loopholes.”

Soon after their Facebook page was banned and the new page began gaining traction, several of the page’s staff, including Ferran, were given 30 day bans from Facebook.

In an article on the Uncle Sam’s Misguided Children website titled “Facebook Fascism – Meddling in the Elections”,  contributor Faye Higbee details how she and Ferran were banned for posting the page’s logo as its profile picture.

“Both Rick Ferran, the page owner, and myself were banned for posting our own logo, which they said “violated” their arbitrary community standards. Only I have NEVER posted our logo. Ever. Not even once. And I’ve been with Uncle Sam’s since 2013.”

Higbee explains that the appeal process for Facebook to reconsider the decision is apparently broken, giving both her and Ferran a notification that Facebook cannot process the request. As a result, the 30-day bans seem to be set in stone.

In her article, Higbee explains that the ban is, in her view, an attempt at election meddling by the Big Tech giant.

“THIRTY days from now will put us PAST the midterm elections. Let me say that again: the ban they have placed on us will put us PAST the midterm elections.

They are SILENCING our voices. They are MANIPULATING the Elections. To hell with Russia and China, FACEBOOK is the one doing the meddling.”

She continues to explain that Ferran, a veteran, also lost his primary source of income when Facebook banned the page and then his personal account, and likens their circumstances to economic warfare.

“This is war,” Higbee wrote, “This is a battleground for the minds and hearts of Americans. Facebook is fighting with censorship.”

Big League Politics has detailed several recent acts of Big Tech censorship on the platform, including the blanket ban of over 500 political Facebook pages, Big League Politics’ own Laura Loomer’s permanent Facebook ban, the repeated bans of the popular ‘I, Hypocrite’ page, and various actions taken by Facebook against the ‘God Emperor Trump’ page.

Department of Justice Sues Facebook for Discrimination Against Americans in Favor of H1B Visa Workers

Facebook discriminated against Americans.

Published

on

The Department of Justice filed a new lawsuit against Big Tech monopoly Facebook for engaging in pervasive and systemic discrimination against American workers, refusing to consider them for company positions and instead shepherding cheaper and more compliant foreign visa workers into more than 2,500 of the company’s high-paying jobs.

The Department of Justice alleges that Facebook created a category of employment offerings in which none or one American worker applied more than 99% of the time, and were almost never hired. Facebook didn’t advertise job opening it restricted to the “PERM” process on its careers website, instead exclusively recruiting visa workers.

According to the lawsuit, and based on the department’s nearly two-year investigation, Facebook intentionally created a hiring system in which it denied qualified U.S. workers a fair opportunity to learn about and apply for jobs that Facebook instead sought to channel to temporary visa holders Facebook wanted to sponsor for green cards.

The H-1B visa program is favorite of Big Tech, creating a class of employees who function as de facto indentured servants. H-1B workers are reliant on their employers for eventual American green cards, and leaving their jobs jeopardizes their immigration status. Some technology companies have been subject to large settlements for exploiting their bonded H-1B worker force.

The Department of Justice’s lawsuit alleges that Facebook engaged in intentional and widespread violations of the law, by setting aside positions for temporary visa holders instead of considering interested and qualified U.S. workers,” said Assistant Attorney General Eric S. Dreiband of the Civil Rights Division.

This lawsuit follows a nearly two-year investigation into Facebook’s practices and a ‘reasonable cause’ determination by the Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division. Our message to workers is clear: if companies deny employment opportunities by illegally preferring temporary visa holders, the Department of Justice will hold them accountable. Our message to all employers — including those in the technology sector — is clear: you cannot illegally prefer to recruit, consider, or hire temporary visa holders over U.S. workers.

The Department of Justice will seek civil penalties from Facebook on behalf of American workers discriminated against in the employment process, describing Facebook’s “discrimination against U.S. workers [as] intentional, widespread, and in violation” of immigration law.

Facebook has lobbied heavily in favor of raising annual visa workers levels, most recently boosting Senator Mike Lee’s proposal to remove per-country caps on H-1B visas. This will result in nearly all H-1B visas being given to nationals of a few large countries, such as India. Senator Lee succeeded in passing the migrant labor giveaway to Big Tech through the Senate on Wednesday.
