A popular podcast run by the man who went viral after defending himself against an Antifa member was banned by Facebook with no explanation or opportunity to appeal the decision.
Panman and his cohost, Jason Lo, say their Facebook page “Titans of Liberty” was banned from Facebook without a notification, appeal process, or explanation for its removal last week.
Speaking to Big League Politics, Lo explained that the page was, strangely, removed from Facebook without any of the platform’s usual procedures.
“The page disappeared out of thin air, and it’s just gone,” said Lo. “No warning, no nothing.”
Facebook typically warns users they are infringing on the platform’s community standards several times, temporarily suspending their ability to post in increments ranging from 24 hours to 30 days, and eventually escalate these punishments to the complete removal of a Facebook page.
Rather than following this pattern, Facebook removed the “Titans of Liberty” page with no explanation, and Lo and Panman received no punishment on their personal profiles. Lo told Big League Politics he was given “No reason at all.”
The ban could be related to Panman’s affiliation with the Proud Boys, which Facebook considers a “hate group.”
Facebook’s decision to ban Lo and Panman’s page comes on the heels of the big tech platform’s decision to ban several prominent right wing figures, including Alex Jones, Paul Joseph Watson, Laura Loomer, and Milo Yiannopoulos from both Facebook and Instagram.
One reason given by Facebook for the ban was that Jones interviewed Proud Boys founder Gavin McInnes on his radio and TV show, who Facebook considers a “hate figure” and banned previously.
Big League Politics asked Facebook for comment on this story and did not receive a response.
Hungary Will Take Action Against Big Tech Shadowbanning of Christians, Conservatives, and Other Right-Wingers
Holding Big Tech accountable.
The government of Viktor Orban, prime minister of Hungary, has announced its commitment to take on Big Tech’s shadowbanning of Christians, conservatives, and other assorted right-wingers.
In a Facebook post shared Monday, Hungarian Minister of Justice Judit Varga said she believes that shadowbanning—the secret restriction of a social media user’s visibility—violates “fundamental democratic legal norms that form the basis of Western-type culture.”
Because of Big Tech’s “systematic abuses,” Varga said she convened a meeting of the Hungarian Digital Freedom Committee and will soon meet with the president of the Hungarian Competition Authority regarding “the possibility of sanctioning unfair commercial practices.”
Varga also claimed she has personally experienced shadowbanning and then linked to the following tweets from James O’Keefe and the O’Keefe-run Project Veritas:

"One strategy is to shadow ban so that you have ultimate control."
"It's going to ban, like, a way of talking."
"You just delete them, but the problem is there are hundreds of thousands of them, so you got to write algorithms that do it for you." pic.twitter.com/NQBsSziI2X

The Hungarian government, along with the Polish government, is considered one of the last in the Western world that’s committed to some form of social conservatism and resistance against neoliberal globalism. Big League Politics has thus closely followed Prime Minister Orban and Hungary over the past several months, reporting on Orban’s various confrontations with George Soros and news such as their proposed constitutional amendment to prevent gay couples from adopting children:
