What would you say if I told you there was a vast left wing conspiracy to restrict news and information disseminated to the masses, especially the conservative masses, and they are targeting social media as a vehicle to accomplish that goal? No, I’m not a right-wing-nut-job. Let me lay out some facts, and connect some dots for you.
During Obama’s 2008 campaign, most folks became aware of the power social media had in its ability to reach otherwise politically disengaged audiences, and since that time conservative media has exploded the reach of their network, with conservative messaging through social media like twitter and facebook. Conservatives have successfully networked like minded individuals, across the country, outside the influence, and controlled messaging, of mainstream, liberal media.
Early this morning, social media powerhouse, facebook, unpublished on of its top conservative pages, Three Percenter Nation, apparently, without reason/cause. And it’s not the first time.
In 2013, The Patriot Nation facebook page was taken down during its fast rise to conservative social media nexus. At that time, the page had more than 50,000 followers and a 9 million reach. Since that time, TPN has rebuilt, and here’s what Facebook wiped out with the stroke of a key, and without cause.
Admins of Three Percenter went to bed with a page that possessed networking stats of nearly 700,000 followers and more than 32 million in reach, and woke up to this.
And this was the reason why their page was unpublished. Needless to say, Three Percenter had been the previous target of numerous admin bans and suspensions.
Agendas and hypocrisy just ooze out of every digital pore when you think of what facebook allows on other pages that go against the very core of American culture and exceptionalism, and their own community standards. The very same standards that got popular patriot pages unpublished. Universal Free Press chronicles some double standards.
“Posts like this are in clear violation of Facebook’s community standards, as it blatantly calls for violence and murder, which obviously constitutes “criminal activity.” But despite this fact, the administrators of Facebook continue to allow terroristic threats like this to continue, ignoring their own rules as countless users flag and report posts like this for abuse.”
Here’s Three Percenter’s web page. Check it out and see for yourself if you think there is anything there that might violate facebook community standards. Think about just what it is that facebook wants to quash. Think about timing. America is just a little over one year from a presidential election that will definitively change, or not, the climate of a free nation.
If you were on the socialist side of the political warfare, shutting down networking of the enemy would be a priority. Saul Alynsky’s 13th Rule for Radicals: “The thirteenth rule: Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.” The 10th rule, “The major premise for tactics is the development of operations that will maintain a constant pressure upon the opposition.”
It’s not a conspiracy theory. It’s not a freedom of speech issue. facebook is a publicly held company. They can do whatever they want. Set policies. Enforce them. Break them. It is about driving the message, controlling the messaging. It’s about driving an agenda. And you can be damned sure it’s not a conservative agenda.
While we still have a capitalist culture, let this privately held company know that facebook patrons demand to be heard. Advertisers of this company need to know that a major market share is being discriminated against, and they don’t like it. Go to the new Three Percenter/Patriot Nation facebook page and give it a like. Invite your friends, too. Stand up to oppressive agendas and suppression of conservative values/speech.
UPDATE: 9/10/15 – Here’s the culprit. This is what started the entire mess. What do you think? Is this image something that really violates fb-community standards?
