Here’s Your Proof That Facebook Discriminates Against Conservatives

Printed from: http://newbostonpost.com/2017/11/28/heres-your-proof-that-facebook-discriminates-against-conservatives/

In the past, I’ve written about how I’ve been put in “Facebook jail” for pro-police content and for conservative posts.

Countless cops and other writers, including those who contribute to Law Enforcement Today, have also inexplicably found themselves in trouble with the social media giant for inexplicable “violations” of Facebook’s terms.

Today … I proudly bring you unequivocal proof that Facebook is 100% committed to silencing the voices of those that don’t toe the liberal line.

Last week, I dropped a video on Law Enforcement Today’s Facebook page about how law enforcement officers are being blocked from doing their jobs when they try to arrest illegal immigrants who run into churches and cry “sanctuary.”

The video quickly picked up speed:

Hour 1: 8,000 views

Hour 2: 18,000 views

Hour 3: 30,000 views

Hour 4: 45,000 views

And then … it stopped.

This video was booming … until it clearly caught the eye of someone at Facebook, who then KILLED it.

So we figured we’d get creative. We turned the video into an article, linked the video to the article on the website, and then put a Facebook advertising budget behind it to serve the video up to more people.

That’s when the Facebook gods struck.

All of a sudden, people couldn’t share the video.  At all.

Not only that, but Facebook started telling anyone that tried to click from Facebook to read the article that Law Enforcement Today was “malicious.”

For the record, Law Enforcement Today is a website for police and supporters run by active police officers. 

The audience responded quickly … noting that Facebook was censoring the content.

I figured I could clear up the misunderstanding pretty quickly. After all, my agency will spend $10 million this year on Facebook and Instagram advertising … so a quick email should do the trick, right?  Wrong.

Apparently we had violated their “policy.”

But the thing is … we didn’t.

So I questioned further.  Facebook’s response?  Too bad.

In the past year, we’ve posted content for dozens of clients. We’ve posted hundreds of articles. We’ve uploaded thousands of videos. We’ve spent millions of dollars on Facebook.

And what’s the content that gets us flagged or banned EVERY SINGLE TIME?

Conservative content. Anything that goes against the liberal agenda of removing guns, God, laws, and sanity from our country. Content in support of those who hold the Thin Blue Line. 

Every single time.

And the sad truth of it?  We keep feeding the beast. Because Facebook is totally and completely intertwined in our lives. In our schools. In our churches. In our businesses.

It’s how we communicate with our friends. Our neighbors. Our customers. Our clients. 

It’s tied with how we buy. How we sell. How we keep up to date on the news. On family.

And you can keep doing just that.

As long as you don’t speak out of turn.

It might feel like 2018 is right around the corner … but it sure is looking more like 1984.
