Facebook Bans Pro LIfe Advertisement

Facebook censored an advertisement run by the pro-life Irish Iona Institute because it used a medical image of a fetus as its photo.

The big tech platform initially accepted the pro-life advertisement, which contained an image of a fetal baby and the text “Still one of us” alongside it. After it ran for a short period on a three-day campaign, the image was censored by Facebook for containing violent or graphic content, but was still available on the platform.

Facebook did not respond to Big League Politics’ request for comment, but told the Irish Catholic newspaper that “a photo or video containing graphic content may appear with a warning to let people know about the content before they view it and may only be visible to people older than 18.”

Speaking to Big League Politics, the Iona Institute explained that the organization attempted to renew the organization after the three day advertising campaign, and their renewal was denied by Facebook without an explanation.

“Our post was initially accepted for a 3-day paid promotion,” said an Iona Institute representative. “When we tried to renew the promotion it was rejected but we didn’t get any notice from Facebook.”

The Iona Institute contacted Facebook to learn why their ad was rejected, and did not receive a response from the big tech platform.

This latest big tech censorship development comes after Facebook banned several prominent conservatives from the United States and the United Kingdom, including Paul Joseph Watson, Alex Jones, Laura Loomer, and Milo Yiannopoulos. Facebook will also take the unprecedented step of banning users for simply sharing links or videos featuring Jones.

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:

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:
