Without explanation or an appeal process, a popular pro-gun Facebook group was deleted twice over the weekend.
The Facebook group, “implying we can discuss weapons,” which was owned and run by a number of veterans, was unexpectedly shut down last week. Its 15,000 members immediately retreated into its second group, “implying we can discuss weapons 2,” only to have it banned as well.
Facebook did not explain what the groups did to violate its Community Standards, and they maintain that they strove to make their groups meet Facebook’s expectations.
“We all woke up one day and it was gone,” one of the admins told Big League Politics, “Nothing from Facebook, no clean up order like a year ago.”
The group had previously been ordered to delete any possibly incendiary speech and ensure no weapons were being sold in the group in 2018. They became very strict with enforcing these standards.
“Then the back up got taken down,” he said, “And we didn’t have much weapons posting even.”
The group admins had no way to appeal Facebook’s decision, and now are left wondering what exactly they did to break Facebook’s rules.
“I think it’s the name,” one admin said, suggesting Facebook may be deleting any pro-Second Amendment groups.
“We literally got nothing. No notification, no appeal, nothing,” he said, “We were scrolling through the group then [another admin] messaged the admin chat and said ‘who banned me’ because that’s what it looked like.”
Facebook’s anti-conservative bias has become increasingly clear over the last year. After Alex Jones was taken down due to ambiguous claims of hate speech, it has since banned the son of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, pro-Trump “Deplorable” groups, and made executives apologize for daring to support President Donald J. Trump.
Meanwhile, Facebook has allowed pages like Occupy Democrats, which encouraged its followers to identify and dox the Covington Catholic students, to remain on the platform.
Supposed Sheriff’s Deputy That Went Viral After ‘Resigning’ Busted as a Likely Impostor
It’s very likely an impostor is running the account.
An anonymous ‘sheriff’s deputy’ that claimed to have resigned from his position as a law enforcement officer in protest of the death of George Floyd is considered by many to be an impostor.
@navyvetbolt gathered more than 100,000 retweets on Twitter on Monday with a picture of what appeared to be police gear, claiming he had just resigned from an unnamed law enforcement agency in protest of the killing of Floyd.
The viral tweet later reached the front page of Reddit, with the anonymous account pivoting swiftly into partisan anti-Trump and left-wing political commentary.
However, some were unconvinced that navyvetbolt is who he claims to be, pointing out that much of the gear he posted in his original tweet is commonly sold on ecommerce websites such as eBay and Alibaba. Most notably, the holster he uses for what is nominally his service pistol doesn’t resemble holsters commonly used by law enforcement agencies, more closely resembling a civilian holster.
Firearms enthusiast @LouisvilleGun uploaded a lengthy set of a arguments in an imgur detailing why @navyvetbolt is likely a law enforcement imposter, exposing the wide list of discrepancies surrounding his claims with the make and quality of the supposed police gear he posted on Twitter.
@navyvetbolt is yet to provide any solid evidence proving he’s a (now former) law enforcement agent, claiming to do so would somehow put his life or family at risk.
He posted a picture of a supposedly department-issued rifle that is identifiable in the photo as a Smith and Wesson M&P15.
That form of AR-style rifle is one of the more commonly owned and sold AR’s in the United States. It’s thought of by some as a more ‘affordable’ rifle, often retailing for prices around $600.
Navyvetbolt goes on to claim that the rifle has been converted into a fully automatic weapon.
It’s extremely dubious to imagine that a law enforcement agency would even issue Smith and Wesson M&P15’s to its personnel, considering that the rifle is considered to be more of an expressly civilian weapon. Sheriff’s Departments and police agencies can obtain fully automatic rifles from military-grade manufacturers legally; it would make no sense to convert a civilian AR-15 to fully automatic for law enforcement use. And it’s even more outlandish that whatever law enforcement agency navyvetbolt claims to have worked for would let him keep a fully automatic rifle owned by the agency after resigning in an act of political protest. Not to mention that such a transfer would place him in violation of the ATF’s tax stamp rules for the transfer of fully automatic firearms.
Almost certainly a poorly disguised hoaxster, unwilling to provide any real evidence of his claims of affiliation with a law enforcement agency, using a sheriff’s badge purchased on eBay or Alibaba in order to advance a left-wing political agenda.
