I got a notice from Facebook over the weekend, telling me that I something I posted violated Facebook’s community guidelines. I was thrown in FB jail again. That’s odd, I thought. I haven’t posted ANYTHING to Facebook in months, ever since I was tossed in FB jail for things that I had already been thrown in FB jail for before.
Some history. I stopped posting to FB when I was given a 7 day ban on January 10 because:
Multiple posts from the last year didn’t follow our standards.
Yeah, I know. You suspended my account no fewer than 11 times in the 12 preceding months. Still, I had done nothing new to merit such a ban. Because of that, I only made three posts after the ban ended on January 18. One was to change my profile pic to an announcement that I would no longer use FB, and instead would be found on Gab, MeWe, and Parler. The second was to post this picture:
Then the third was on February 24, which was a link to the article in TIME magazine, where they admitted to rigging the election. When I said the election was rigged, it got me a ten day ban. It turns out that I was right.
Still, what was it that I did to violate the community standards of FB this time? So I logged in to find out, and it turns out that I was banned again for posting this picture all the way back in August of 2020:
My punishment? Apparently, FB says that the business page that I manage is not permitted to do any paid advertising for 30 days. So what? I stopped all paid advertising for all of my businesses with FB a year and a half ago because of this exact sort of thing from them.
I don’t care about your website any longer. I am no longer providing content to draw eyeballs for you to sell, nor am I a consumer of the content of others that you are selling. Fuck off.
Glen M. Gardner Jr., national commander of the Veterans of Foreign Wars, disputed claims that Homeland Security analysts were describing veterans as terror threats.
“The report should have been worded differently, but it made no blanket accusation that every soldier was capable of being a traitor like Benedict Arnold, or every veteran could be a lone wolf, homegrown terrorist like Timothy McVeigh,” said Gardner, a Marine veteran from Round Rock, Texas. “It was just an assessment about possibilities that could take place.”
The director of national intelligence affirmed rather bluntly today that the U.S. intelligence community has authority to target American citizens for assassination if they present a direct terrorist threat to the United States. According to U.S. officials, only a handful of Americans would be eligible for targeting by U.S. intelligence or military operations. The legal guidance is determined by the National Security Council and the Justice Department.
Back in January, Biden hired a former GWOT spook to head up his use of government power in the planned war on the right. The idea is Orwellian. Picture this: The government is prohibited from searching your home without a warrant. It says so, right there in the Bill of Rights. The brilliant idea they come up with is to hire a burglar to break into your house, steal your papers, and then give them to the police. That is part of the brilliant plan.
The government’s position is that they are free to hire people under contract to circumvent the protections of the Constitution, and as long as those people are not actually on the government payroll, this is completely constitutional. No sane court would uphold that idea. So of course, they need to pack the court.
They are using private companies as well as government agencies- the post office and Internet providers, for example, to spy on Americans. Just like the Chinese are doing.
And you see what’s happening, the studies that are beginning to be done, maybe at your university as well, about the impact of former military, former police officers, on — on the growth of white supremacy in some of these groups.
You may remember, in one of my debates with the former president, I asked him to condemn the Proud Boys and he wouldn’t do it. He said “Stand by,” stand ready, or whatever the phrase exactly was.
It is a bane on our existence. It has always been. As Lincoln said, we have to appeal to our better angels, and these guys are not — and women — are, in fact, demented. They are dangerous people.
When I said 12 years ago that the powers from the war on terror would be used against American citizens, I was told it couldn’t happen. Now I am warning you that drone strikes, summary executions, and concentration camps are coming. Please listen this time, before it is too late.
They claim I violated their community guidelines, which I can’t find anywhere. It appears like they are:
I think that this happens because we were beating them in the realm of ideas. We were using facts and logic, while they were using emotions, hyperbole, and dick jokes. Once they realized that wasn’t working, it was time to silence us. This is the adult equivalent of putting your hands over your ears while yelling “LALALALA. I can’t hear you.”
First they accused Trump of being a dictator. Then they accused the Florida governor. The entire time, President Biden has been telling the Republicans to either do as they are told, or he will simply do it without them.
Last week, I posted that a local TV station was censoring my comments. Here are some more of my comments that were censored in the past few days, with the station claiming that my comments violated community standards:
On people being required to wear masks, even after being vaccinated:
Americans continue their record pace of firearm buying. In April, sales of firearms were up even though handgun sales were down. This means that the difference was long guns. The exact guns Biden is claiming he wants to ban.
I am sure that every one of the 2 million firearms sold last month will be turned in once a ban goes into effect.
Even when they call 911 for help, citizens near 38th street and Chicago Avenue in Minneapolis (the area called “George Floyd Square”) will get no help. Why? Because police have abandoned the area due to the threat of violence. It is an area where police, and to a large extent white people, are not welcome.
Phase II (guerrilla warfare phase) is the first level of armed violence. Irregular forces engage in sabotage, interdiction of communication and logistics links, assassination, and selective attacks against government forces. Insurgents expand their secure base areas and, where possible, link them to form strategic enclaves of political autonomy.
The second phase continues until it has caused the government to lose authority and legitimacy. This is soon followed by financial collapse, a breakdown in authority, strong symbolic actions, and perception of dual sovereignty or provisional authority, among others.
A great example of this would be Northern Ireland in 1972 was in the crisis state. The maintenance of barricaded “no-go” and “free” zones in Derry/Londonderry and Belfast during this period contributed to perceptions of provisional authority and separation of resistance from opponents. This is exactly what is happening.
Citizens then cry out for protection. The would be revolutionaries then step in and restore order. The revolutionary forces are then seen as a better solution than the now ineffective government.
So now the show trials to eliminate political opposition to the Communists continue. One Oregon lawmaker is being charged with allowing his constituents to protest terrorists to enter the Capitol back in December when he allowed protesters terrorists to enter and protest COVID restrictions, er disrupt the business of government, uh, attempt subversive activity.
My comment, which I don’t think violated the TOS, was moderated and will not appear on the site. No bias here, nope.
EDITED TO ADD: I showed this to my wife, and her reply was “It’s their website, they can do what they want.”
I don’t want anyone to think that I support making their bias illegal. I am, however calling them out for being lying hypocrites for making the claim that the press is an unbiased purveyor of the truth. I am also calling social media for blocking so-called “false news” when their version is no closer to the truth than any other.
