Facebook Threatens To Ban Most Popular Pro-Trump Page Just 3 Days Before Midterms

Published

on

Facebook sent an email to the admin of ‘Donald Trump Is Our President’ and ‘Hillary Clinton for Prison’ informing him his pages and personal Facebook account “are at risk of being removed.”

On Saturday afternoon, the husband and wife team behind the immensely popular ‘Donald Trump Is Our President’ and ‘Hillary Clinton for Prison’ Facebook pages received an email from Facebook explaining that their presence on the Big Tech platform is at risk of being removed for violating Facebook’s Community Guidelines against users who use multiple accounts, and its policies against what company calls “ad farms,” or ad laden websites that feign to be political to sell advertising. Facebook previously used this explanation after they deleted 800 political accounts and pages.

Mark Sidney, who runs the massive pages with his wife, claims that he never violated any of these rules. First, Sidney attempted to communicate with Facebook by replying to the email, only to receive an automated reply notifying him that the inbox was not monitored. Next, Sidney took to his page ‘Donald Trump Is Our President’ to tell his story. His page boasts nearly 3.2 million likes, and Sidney claims it has the second highest engagement for a pro-Trump Facebook page next to President Donald Trump’s own.

Speaking to Big League Politics via phone, Sidney explained that he only has one Facebook account, and that his identity was confirmed by Facebook after the 2016 election because of the size of his page. Sidney further explained that he first posts articles from his website, FB News Cycle, to a Facebook group he created and tied to his page. Then, if the post is popular in his group, Sidney shares the article to his page. He does not know if Facebook considers this spam, and has stopped the practice until he can hear back from Facebook.

Sidney also lamented that he is being forced to self censor just three days before the 2018 Midterm Elections, which he considers crucial for Republicans to win. Not knowing if this type of sharing is now considered a violation of Facebook’s Community Standards, Sidney says he has stopped posting links to his website on the page.

“My plan is to not post links to my website, which is killing me,” Sidney said, “Three days before the election, this is crunch time. Now I’m going to be self censoring.”

In a simultaneous effort to prevent Facebook from removing his pages from the platform, Sidney also temporarily unpublished ‘Hillary for Prison,’ which has over 1.3 million likes, until he is able to hear back from Facebook and understand how he can become compliant. He does not know if the page will be republished before the November 6 elections.

“I’m trying to be completely above board. I understand that people are worried about the integrity of the election,” Sidney told us, referring to fears among the left that Facebook was used by foreign entities to influence the 2016 presidential election,  “I just need to know where the goal posts are, that’s all.”

It is worth noting that this threat of censorship from Facebook comes just one day after an FEC complaint was filed against Facebook by Americans for Legal Immigration PAC. The complaint accuses Facebook, Google, and Twitter of violating election law by selectively banning or otherwise censoring conservatives while allowing leftist voices to thrive.

Big League Politics has detailed several recent examples of censorship on the Big Tech platform, including Laura Loomer’s permanent Facebook ban, the ban of ‘Uncle Sam’s Misguided Children’,  the rejection of pro-life advertisements, the censorship of #WalkAway founder Brandon Straka, and the actions the platform has taken against the Facebook page ‘God Emperor Trump’.

Update: After this article was published, Facebook contacted Sidney and expanded on their initial email.

Prominent Leftists Sign Letter Deriding Cancel Culture, Now That It is Starting to Affect Them!

They didn’t care much until the mob came for their freedom.

Published

on

A group of prominent leftist authors, academics, journalists, policy makers and lobbyists have signed onto a letter begging the left-wing mob to stop its relentless assault on freedom of expression.

The letter, which has been published by Harper’s Magazine, was signed by 150 people including Steven Pinker, Fareed Zakaria, Noam Chomsky, J.K. Rowling, David Frum, Margaret Atwood, and Salman Rushdie. It pleads with the mob to stop their common practice of destroying anyone with whom they disagree.

“Our cultural institutions are facing a moment of trial. Powerful protests for racial and social justice are leading to overdue demands for police reform, along with wider calls for greater equality and inclusion across our society, not least in higher education, journalism, philanthropy, and the arts,” the letter reads, showing that the leftists continue to pay lip service to the overall aims of the marxist mob.

However, the authors complain about an “intensified a new set of moral attitudes and political commitments that tend to weaken our norms of open debate and toleration of differences in favor of ideological conformity.”

“The forces of illiberalism are gaining strength throughout the world and have a powerful ally in Donald Trump, who represents a real threat to democracy. But resistance must not be allowed to harden into its own brand of dogma or coercion—which right-wing demagogues are already exploiting. The democratic inclusion we want can be achieved only if we speak out against the intolerant climate that has set in on all sides,” they wrote.

The authors claim that the Left is becoming like the Right in its hostility against the marketplace of ideas. They wrote that “censoriousness is also spreading more widely in our culture: an intolerance of opposing views, a vogue for public shaming and ostracism, and the tendency to dissolve complex policy issues in a blinding moral certainty.”

“More troubling still, institutional leaders, in a spirit of panicked damage control, are delivering hasty and disproportionate punishments instead of considered reforms. Editors are fired for running controversial pieces; books are withdrawn for alleged inauthenticity; journalists are barred from writing on certain topics; professors are investigated for quoting works of literature in class; a researcher is fired for circulating a peer-reviewed academic study; and the heads of organizations are ousted for what are sometimes just clumsy mistakes,” they wrote.

“Whatever the arguments around each particular incident, the result has been to steadily narrow the boundaries of what can be said without the threat of reprisal. We are already paying the price in greater risk aversion among writers, artists, and journalists who fear for their livelihoods if they depart from the consensus, or even lack sufficient zeal in agreement,” they added.

The authors concluded their letter with a call for the mob to respect liberal values and reject witch hunting meant to quell free speech.

“We need to preserve the possibility of good-faith disagreement without dire professional consequences. If we won’t defend the very thing on which our work depends, we shouldn’t expect the public or the state to defend it for us,” they wrote.

However, these leftists are too little too late with their effort because the mob has grown too powerful. Most of these individuals were silent when their political opposition was being targeted by the mob. Because they lacked the courage to stand up for freedom when it could have mattered, they have the well-earned misfortune of being cannibalized by the mob as well.
