Independent Journalist Ford Fischer is Temporarily Banned from Facebook for Reporting on Armed Protests

On Saturday, independent journalist Ford Fischer was banned from Facebook after he livestreamed footage of a contentious armed protests on the monolithic social media platform.

Fischer, who regularly publishes raw video from protests through his News2Share outlet on various social media platforms, noted that he was banned after finishing a livestream of a contentious militia rally in Louisville, Ky.

Fischer tried to appeal Facebook’s capricious ban of his verified account, but his efforts were initially to no avail as he was kept off of the platform a full day.

The libertarian reporter noted that he was not at the rally to support extremist political violence, but was there to perform his journalist duty to inform the public about what exactly was taking place at the event.

Fischer noted that he has been attached by other major tech platforms before, but Facebook’s decision to remove him from their platform completely is without precedent.

However, after significant push back from Fischer’s significant Twitter following, Facebook caved and let him back on the platform.

Big League Politics has reported on how Facebook is ramping up their thought control operation heading into November’s election, updating their terms of service so they can arbitrarily throw any content off of their platform for basically any reason:

Facebook has announced an October surprise in the form of a new policy that will come into place just weeks before the November election.

“We also can remove or restrict access to your content, services or information if we determine that doing so is reasonably necessary to avoid or mitigate adverse legal or regulatory impacts to Facebook,” the new terms of service read…

This new policy will allow Facebook to capriciously censor content from Trump supporters in the lead up to this year’s presidential election. It is another encroachment in the real electoral interference conspiracy coming from the Silicon Valley tech giants…

Facebook is trying to use their monopoly power, granted to them under Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act, to influence elections. They are more dangerous to democracy than the Russians could ever hope to be.

Facebook’s targeting of Fischer, a non-partisan reporter who mostly publishes live video coverage of events, shows that their censorship crusade is about far more than eliminating so-called hate speech. It is about silencing all competitors of the corporate media so globalist schemes can be protected.
