Ron Paul Blocked from Facebook After Writing Column About the Pitfalls of Censorship
quote:

LINK

Former Republican congressman Ron Paul says he's been blocked by Facebook from managing his account over repeated violations of the social media giant's "community standards."

"With no explanation other than 'repeatedly going against our community standards,' @Facebook has blocked me from managing my page. Never have we received notice of violating community standards in the past and nowhere is the offending post identified," Paul wrote on Twitter Monday.

The post included a screenshot of his Facebook page, which had the message informing him of his limited functionality. Paul wrote in a second Twitter post that the only thing he put on Facebook Monday was "my weekly 'Texas Straight Talk' column, which I have published every week since 1976."


quote:

The column Paul posted Monday to his Facebook page was about tech censorship. In the days following the January 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol, Twitter, Facebook and other sites took action against Trump. Commenting on blocking the president from publishing content, the social media giants cited rules prohibiting content that incites violence.

"Last week's massive social media purges—starting with President Trump's permanent ban from Twitter and other outlets—was shocking and chilling, particularly to those of us who value free expression and the free exchange of ideas," Paul wrote in the column.

I think I know the answer, but why are the events of January 6 referred to as riots, but the riots we've seen since the death of St. George of Minneapolis have been called peaceful/mostly peaceful protests?

They are clearly just taking down known rabble rousers and trouble makers like Ron Paul.




That guy wouldn't hurt a fly.

These attempts to silence people are disturbing and are only going to further divide the country.

Won't happen. They've bought off too many Democrats and the federal judiciary won't do anything because they've become too politicized. John Roberts is too scared of Chuck Schumer to do the right thing at the USSC (which is where this is all going to eventually end).

They mostly beat around the bush or completely ignore any threads regarding this topic. When it comes to protesting though, or riots, they have now suddenly woken up and become very “concerned”
