According to a report from KATU, Joey Gibson, the head of Patriot Prayer, revealed that his personal Facebook account was removed on September 4, 2020 in addition to the group’s page.
Aaron “Jay” Danielson, a member of the group, was killed by a leftist radical on August 29, 2020.
Danielson and his compatriots were part of a pro-Trump caravan that traveled to Portland in order to stand against the radical Left.
On September 3, the man who was alleged to have murdered Danielson, Michael Reinhoel, was killed after he pulled a gun while a federal task force attempted to catch him near Lacey, Washington. The U.S. Marshals Service recounted this lethal encounter in a statement.
In a statement released on August 4, Gibson stated:
Antifa groups murdered my friend while he was walking home, and instead of the multibillion dollar company banning Portland antifa pages they ban Patriot Prayer and myself (Joey Gibson). People can sign up at PatriotPrayerUSA.com for future events.
So far, there has been no explanation from Facebook on why the Facebook accounts were removed.
However, several conservatives have already expressed their disgust with Facebook’s decision to take down these pages. Sean Davis, the co-founder of The Federalist commented on this development:
A man wearing a Patriot Prayer hat was murdered in Portland by a criminal who said he was “100% Antifa” and instead of banning Antifa pages, Facebook banned Patriot Prayer. Truly Orwellian insanity from the Trotskyite garbage babies who run Facebook.

Big Tech makes no qualms about protecting the Left, while the Right routinely gets censored. Despite the initial optimism about the Internet being a hub for freedom, nowadays it has become a gatekeeping space for tech titans to curtail free speech.
If the Trump administration does not do anything to stand up for conservative voices on social media, all right wing figures, who are actually effective, will eventually be unpersoned
Southern Baptist Convention Reverses Course on Name Change After BLP Reporting
They say they’re not changing their name.
The Southern Baptist Convention has sought to dispel reporting from Big League Politics on the organization’s planned name change, arguing that the institution isn’t formally changing its name.
To correct multiple inaccurate reports, “We Are Great Commission Baptists” is the 2021 Annual Meeting THEME.
The GCB descriptor was approved in 2012 for churches to use if it would be helpful in their local context.
The Southern Baptist Convention remains our official name.

But a close look at the American Christian church’s plans relating to its name reveal that it’s played with the idea far more seriously than they’re making it seem.
Reports of a name change first emerged in a Washington Post article published on Tuesday. SBC President JD Greear told the Post that “hundreds of churches” affiliated with the denomination had “committed” to using the phrase “Great Commission Baptist” as an alternative to the denomination’s longtime moniker. The change would come as Greear touts his support of the Black Lives Matter, although he’s been careful in pointing out he doesn’t support any formal organization related to the movement. Greear also is renaming the church he personally pastors with the term.
The SBC’s 2021 convention will also organize under the motto of “We Are Great Commission Baptists.” Sounds a lot like a name change, even if the SBC’s leadership is steadfastly maintaining it isn’t.
The name ‘Great Commission Baptist’ is theologically sound in the Christian religion, but it’s somewhat questionable that the organization’s leader appears to be emphasizing it at a moment in which political correctness is making its entryism into many Christian churches and organizations.
It seems as if the organization’s figurehead is keen to present himself as a liberal-style suburban Evangelical to the Washington Post, but he changed his tune quite quickly when the rank and file membership of Southern Baptist churches learned that he was promoting the idea of a name change.
