Things Facebook Doesn’t Want Conservatives to See

A List Of Times When The Social Media Giant Censored Conservatives

Senator Ted Cruz nailed Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg for censoring conservatives on his social media platform. Cruz only spoke for a few minutes, but raised important points. I think we all know someone who has been sent to “Facebook jail,” meaning, they said something Facebook’s woke censors didn’t like and were suspended temporarily or in some cases, permanently.

Zuckerberg testified before Congress in the wake of the Cambridge Analytica “scandal.” When Facebook gave Obama’s re-election campaign access to nearly twice as much personally identifiable information, it barely made the news.

Between Facebook actively helping the Obama campaign and suppressing conservative voices, we know where they stand. To prove it, we’ve assembled a list of times when the social media giant censored conservatives, both small and large.

As Senator Cruz referenced, Gizmodo reported in 2016 that the “Trending” bar on Facebook is a joke. They suppress conservative stories about the Conservative Political Action Conference, Rand Paul, Mitt Romney, and others. They also force stories that aren’t “trending” into the slot, so that you will pay attention to them. There have been multiple reports of reach being stopped cold so it never makes it into your newsfeed. Zuckerberg defended the algorithm as if it was utterly impartial, but the reality is that liberals are programming the algorithm to suppress conservative views.

Tom Champlin, who owns the libertarian news website “The Liberty Review” and runs its associated Facebook page, was banned for 30 days from Facebook for posting a Tide pod meme. Facebook claims to, “allow humor, satire, [and] social commentary,” but this meme violated the site’s “community standards” by showing a Darwin award winner and possible future Democratic Congressman biting into a packet of laundry detergent. Triggered, much?

Phil Robertson became a household name because of his show, “Duck Dynasty” and for being a proud Christian, conservative voice in a popular culture that is hostile to those ideals. The excuse liberal techies used to censor his video in October 2017? Graphic violence. What on earth was he doing? Field stripping ducks to eat; so apparently, meal prep triggers Facebook’s city slickers.

Jeff Sanford, the owner of Shiloh Gun Range, felt compelled to do something after an Islamic extremist murdered 50 people at Pulse Night Club in Orlando. Sanford offered free concealed carry handgun classes to people in his community. After the local news reported on his generous offer to empower others, Facebook disabled his account.

Dr. Alveda King is a pro-life activist and Christian evangelist that was critical of Barack Obama and has ties to President Trump. She is also the niece of Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. She partnered with Indiegogo, to crowdfund a pro-life movie. Together, they launched a petition and a donation page for a film chronicling the history of Roe v. Wade and highlighting the racism of Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger. Facebook blocked them for “misusing” the site. 

By 2017, Facebook’s hubris had reached a new level. The platform attempted to tell us (intelligent, rational human beings) who we could believe and who we should ignore. They endorsed the New York Times and other established outlets – even with their track record of lying about Joseph Stalin’s state-managed famine in Ukraine, claiming 7-10 million lives, and Jayson Blair’s prolific plagiarism – and called smaller outlets untrustworthy. Unsurprisingly, many people bristled at the idea of being told what to think by a bunch of millennials in Silicon Valley. In 2018, Facebook tried another way, by using algorithms to deprioritize pages associated with specific (right-of-center) ideas and organizations, meaning that unless you are an individual, you won’t show up in someone’s newsfeed like before.

Diamond and Silk became YouTube stars when they went viral for supporting Donald Trump in their sassy videos. Unfortunately, it didn’t take long for Facebook to start messing with the reach of their videos. When confronted, the company sent them an email stating that “they deemed our content and our brand unsafe to the community” according to the pair. In what parallel universe are these videos unsafe?
