As many of you know by now conservative bloggers (both bloggers ‘of name’ and grassroots bloggers like me), online reporters, and conservative posters, have been harassed by FaceBook for about a week now and it’s getting worse…much worse.
Now after posting just a few times and getting the warning (some after just one or two postings or sharings), a new wrench has been thrown into the mix…now I, and other bloggers, online reporters, and regular posters, can only write direct posts and comments to FB pages and sites…we can NO longer copy and paste articles or share links….NO copy and paste or sharing anything…NO Newsmax, NO Townhall…NO WND…NO Examiner…NO Blaze…NO Daily Caller…NO Jihad Watch…NO Bare Naked Islam…NO ANYTHING.
And what do ALL these sites have in common…ALL are conservative sites…all are anti-Obama, anti-islam, and pro-America sites…ALL tell the truth about this traitorous, Second Amendment hating, economy destroying administration…and ALL are what FB considers right-wing extremist sites.
And this comes directly on top of Sunday night’s development involving a petition that was on the FB White House site addressing this very issue of FB censorship. This petition was pulled down with an explanation saying it violated the site policy…which we all know is pure BS as Obama has FB in his pocket…just like the msm is in his pocket…and FB will do whatever he bids them to do…and know that Obama forbids any criticism of his narcissistic self.
In this case the White House took down a petition that violated NO policy, incited NO violence, did NOT call for the overthrow of the government, included NO hate speech or vulgarities…had NO pornographic photos attached to it…NO anything that violated any legitimate policy, whether it be FBs, on whose network this site appears, or the White House site itself. This is a prime example of censorship (a direct violation of our First Amendment right to free speech)…and ‘selective’ censorship at that, because this petition was pulled for the simple reason it criticized the ‘almighty’ FB, an arm of the Obama generated control of the media, for its recent censoring of conservative bloggers, online reporters, and posters, especially those, like me, who are highly vocal and critical of this president and his administration.
And lets NOT forget the Obama wanted, FB sanctioned liberal trolls who peruse conservative blogs and sites and report directly to FB those bloggers, online reporters, and posters as spammers…and spamming does violate FB policy. The only thing is…NO ONE is spamming as we bloggers, online reporters, and posters have permission from site admen to post our blog entries, articles, and comments on their sites…so absolutely NO spamming is involved.
But then FB also says we are being banned because we are annoying people or that we are posting inappropriate material or that we are posting hate speech or that…the list goes on and on. And of course there is NO credence to any of this…it’s just targeted harassment by the FB team of those critical to the Obama agenda.
And here’s the kicker…NO Obama supporting blogger, reporter, or poster has been warned, banned, or blocked…NONE…it’s just we conservatives that are the target of such oh so special FB treatment…treatment that is getting more annoying with each passing hour as just a short while ago an article about this current Facebook censorship was posted on a conservative news site and then Tweeted to its followers. Then lo and behold the article poster, who happened to be one of the site editors, was thrown in the Twitter Gulag…Twitters version of FB jail for 24 hours!
Shut down and silenced just for sharing a FB critical article on her own site.
So now we know that ALL sites, pages, groups, and timelines…ALL…are being monitored by the FB team of geeks and Obamaites to tag anyone criticizing FB or this administration, and then punishment is adjudicated whether warranted or NOT. FB has become the pro-Obama biased judge, jury, and sentencer of each and every conservative who uses this network.
There is something so very inherently wrong with this…so very anti-American…so very anti-First Amendment…and I don’t want to hear that FB can do this as they are NO longer a private entity but a publicly traded company with their privacy settings becoming public. And as a now public company, FB does NOT have the right to violate our constitutional given right to free speech, as long as that speech holds true to the intent of the First Amendment.
So FB needs to STOP this nonsense…this selective harassment and selective enforcement…this dictator-like running of an open to the public network…because we bloggers, online reporters, and posters are NOT going to just sit back and allow this to continue unchecked as we will fight back against those who try and pervert our right to free speech.
And FB can take that to the bank…in more ways than one.
