Facebook Bans ‘Deplorables’ Group Amid Vote-Finding Chaos

Published

on

A major pro-President Trump group has been banned on Facebook for supposedly violating “Community Standards.”

Fittingly, the name of the group is “The Deplorables.” The group is now under review, pending an appeal by moderator Lori Saxon, which she filed on November 10.

“The Deplorables” is a spinoff of the massive pro-Trump group that sprouted up in the final weeks of the 2016 election, and which was subsequently destroyed.

Moderator Lori Saxon requested a formal review of the banishment on November 10, in the middle of vote-finding chaos in Florida, Arizona, and Georgia, in which different sectors of the news media are portraying outright different narratives about what is happening in those states.

Moderator Lori Saxon received the following message, which states that the group will be “permanently deleted” if it does not conform to the Community Standards of Facebook.

Here is how the group is described, in Saxon’s Mission Statement:

Waldo Crane eulogized the original “Deplorables” group, which was half-a-million strong at the time it was sold to some kind of click-bait operation following many rounds of troll attacks to flag the content in the group:

Perhaps the most successful conservative pro-Trump Facebook site to emerge from the 2016 election was the half million-member page called “The Deplorables”. It was destroyed last week by the actions of one of its founders. Dan Schwartz, a founder and chief administrator of the site, secretly sold it to Macedonian ‘shit posters,’ in Mr. Schwartz’s words, for the relative pittance of $15,000.

Ironically, at the top of The Deplorables page, there is a warning about not posting ‘fake news’ from Macedonian scammers, as happened frequently during the 2016 election cycle. Now the entire page is ‘owned’ by fake news purveyors, who no longer allow members to post articles.

“The Deplorables,” whose membership has consistently hovered around 460,000, sprang up in the aftermath of Hillary Clinton’s remark to an LGBT audience, on September 9th, 2016, that half of Trump voters were “a basket of deplorables.”

At a barbeque for a handful of Trump supporters on September 11, 2016, the idea for a Facebook page with that name was born. Dan Schwartz, an unemployed hearing aid designer, set it up the following week. Within days there were 100K members. By election day there were an unheard of 450,000 active participants on the site.

In the succeeding 18 months, the site has been an organic community of half a million authentic, conservative members, who supported their favorite news sites, magazines and other think tanks by posting links to share with fellow members. An article could get 20,000 likes in two days – creating value for writers and websites.

In a Facebook messenger post to fellow founders on Sunday, Mr. Schwartz boasted about his action: “Fellow Deplorables, I have some great news: I sold The Deplorables, and the $15 grand is in the bank! As Donald Trump would say, “you don’t fall in love with an asset.” … Basically the buyer is a Macedonian shitposter from Veles, who set the group to admin-only posting; and he removed the other admins. I left the group, and I recommend that you leave, too.”

In a series of online conversations, the original members of the group expressed dismay that Mr. Schwartz had betrayed the trust of the 460,000 current members by handing over their information on Facebook to Eastern European professional scammers – thereby turning the site into the Fake News that liberals have long alleged it to be and conservatives have long railed against.

The action has been reported to Facebook through online channels, but it is not yet known how the company will respond. How this instance of an admin ‘selling’ a FB page to Eastern European scammers, of the sort who distort political news, is yet unknown. Mr. Schwartz noted, in multiple texts, that he had gotten away with ‘selling the Brooklyn Bridge.’

Members of the group were astounded that Schwartz sold the asset for a fraction of its estimated value. Consultants have estimated that the group information is worth a minimum of fifty cents per name.

“Desperation begets perfidy,” said one angry founding member.

Wisconsin Police Officer’s Home Attacked, Shot at by Mob of Leftist Protestors

They shot into his house, too.

A mob of “fifty to sixty” people attacked a home belonging to a police officer in Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, over the weekend, terrorizing Wauwatosa Police Department Officer Joseph Mensa, physically assaulting him, and even going so far as to fire a shotgun into the private home.

In a description of the incident, the Wauwatosa Police Department explains that the sizable mob arrived at Mensa’s home at around 8PM on Saturday. Mensa initially had a “dialogue” with the leaders of the mob, only to retreat inside when he “was ultimately physically assaulted outside of his home.

Mensa stayed inside as the unruly and violent mob of leftist thugs attacked and vandalized the home. The report describes a single gunman as having fired a shotgun shell into Mensa’s backdoor, potentially endangering the lives of the currently suspended police officer and his girlfriend inside, in addition to children that reside inside the home.

Mensa described the incident in a Facebook post. He appears to have attracted the attention of the left-wing mob through his involvement in two police-linked shootings.

I was unarmed and tried to defend my property and the property of my girlfriend. We were both assaulted, punched, and ultimately shot at several times,” he said. “There are children that live there any the knew that. The irony in all of this is that they chanted Black Lives Matter the entire time, but had zero regard for any of the black children that live there or me, a black man.

Wauwatosa Police have confirmed they’re anticipating further mob action at Mensa’s home. Officer Mensa has been cleared of wrongdoing in two previous police shooting incidents by the local district attorney, and a third is currently under investigation.
