I was BANNED from Facebook for writing about Facebook censorship — See what happened NEXT

Lauren SouthernArchive

Last Friday, I made a post on Facebook about a friend who’d been banned from Facebook for writing a pro-Trump post. Then I got banned for 30 days!

I’ll show you my friend’s original post. It doesn’t violate any of Facebook’s Community Standards.

I complained. Facebook told me it was a minor mistake, the result of “human error.”

But what came next was a comedy of errors that made it all the way to the Drudge Report and beyond.

This happened the same week Facebook met with prominent conservatives and swore that they and all users on the right would be allowed to speak freely.

WATCH and see what I think Facebook should do next.

PS: Has this ever happened to you? Tell me about it in the comments.

Nothing peeves me more than having a choice of twitter designed for lieberal twits. Or the bastion of all things Sal Alinsky, Facebook itself. Where are the other options? I gave up on Facebook when I was banned because their software refused to accept what was until that day an automated login with Firefox. Afterwards demanding I send them an original color copy of a picture ID. I signed up a new account in 5 minutes and left it plain Jane, with no friends and no personal info available for the ad agencies to plunder. That is how you control Facebook, by encouraging everyone to starve them for information.

Create a crisis and impose a solution while patting themselves on the back, is all the magic behind Lieberal policies. When you hear the statement that this ad was provided by the Government, that is a lie, when you are paying for your own [social marketing] psychological programming, you are providing, both the influence and the resulting political disease. When people start to challenge the “insulted victims” as fanatics and imbeciles, only then will they be defined; as a paternalist dictatorship that can not stand up under scrutiny. It is no small wonder they try to contain the discussions, they have a problem with group denials. The hate and vehemence comes quickly to the surface every time you prove them wrong. Predictable is controllable. So get with it Rebel. Sal was a trickster and con artist who knew how to use mothering and emotional blackmail. The cure is to encourage people to grow up and make adult choices. Electing a government that does not treat them like children having earned the trust and level of intelligence, required to elect any politician, regardless of the party flag.

They are doing it all the time, I have went to Facebook Jail about 5 or 6 times at least!
I’ve had one day suspensions, week suspensions and month suspensions!
Especially after having posted Right wing statements or articles!
I find FB very fussy on Posts about Hillary Clinton lately, used to also be that way about President Obama! Zuckerberg doesn’t like posts about himself either I’ve been suspended for that as well! We’ll see what happens after my up coming post of this article? There is a risk!
I also found Zuckerberg very pro Middle East Islamic Refugee Migration, I have been suspended for posts against the amounts of Islam Refugees being sent to Canada! They do attack the individuals, I once had a staff member for speak up for me to Facebook and had my suspension cancelled! If they think you are just a lone little individual they will cut you off whenever they feel like it!

I just got finished with a 30 day ban for saying “transgender” people who do not have actual birth defects are mentally ill.

I would love to see a social media app that allowed free expression of thought, with no pretense of being a “safe space”.

I wasn’t banned from Facebook – but a year ago my friend was. Literally banned. Not ‘blocked temporarily’ or ""message not fitting guidelines". Not a ‘temporary ban’ – FULLY BANNED.

I still have the screencapped messages: This is what he was e-mailed.

If the link doesn’t work it essentially says, “We’ve determined you are ineligible to use Facebook – please review the Facebook policies etc”

Pretty standard stuff – but then it goes on to say:

“Unfortunately for safety and security reasons we cannot provide information as to why your account was disabled. We appreciate your understanding as this decision is final”

What…. the fuck? Several e-mails were sent, with the exact same canned response. Letters were sent via snail-mail to Facebook locations all over the US. No response. The person’s name who “responded” to emails just said “Iris”.

I have a friend who worked/works for Facebook in Seattle. Explained the situation – and while I don’t think he fully took the case seriously and actually asked about it – they told him “The user uploaded a photo that violates our abuse standards. We will not be granting this user’s account back due to the severity of the image uploaded.’” All of this would be fine, if the image in question or post was pointed out. Nothing was pointed out. Nothing was explained.

It’s not so much ‘losing the account’ that was bad, but a LOT of pictures/moments were lost. We still have no answer as to what exactly happened. My friend started a new account with no problems but to this day we still have no idea what went wrong.

Left Facebook 3 years ago. Received phone calls from “friends” when I did… They wanted to know the reason. I knew even back then it was a left wing safe space. Been 100 times happier since then. Found the rebel in September of 2015. M u c h happier.

You can take whatever precautions to avoid an inflamed hemorrhoid, but sometimes, unfortunately they happen. facebook does not need to ever happen, period. FFB!

Facebook is basically Orwellian Newspeak training.

VLADDI in the old days
Man I like the way you put that
You sewed and stitched it together into a cloak of liberalism
commented 2016-05-23 22:37:25 -0400
Instead of just complaining about the bias against the conservative post by Facebook, tell them you wish to cancel your account and that you intend to share the decision with family and friends. It’s the only real way to make the corporation listen.

The fascist Lord of FASCBOOK, Mark Zuckerberg, was recently caught on an open microphone assuring Germany’s latest insane Chancellor that he’d help her to censor dissenting voices who didn’t like having their families lives and livelihoods endangered by her plan to overrun the populace she was sworn to protect and defend, with hordes of foreign criminal trespassers posing as victims.

One can’t have honest, mutual-problem-solving conversations, or win objectively factual arguments, with leftist criminals, simply because they are prejudicially bigoted adversaries, not debate partners.

Evil only poses as stupidity.

Criminals, who can’t support their “Crime is good! Trust me!” rhetoric with facts, must, by necessity, substitute feelings! Short-circuiting a victim’s thinking is the only way for their lies to “win!”

And slanderous attacks are the best ways to instantly disarm victims by putting them on the defensive.
The second-best way to disarm one’s victims is to tell them they are generally always victims anyway.

Liberals – being criminals just as much as muslims – embody and project “The Adversary” in that they habitually and reactively adopt hypocrites adversarial subjective double standards.

They lie because they hate being already equal to everyone else.

<b>“I’M BETTER THAN YOU!”</b> Which is why they are inconsistent/objectively irrational all the time.

If and when one’s criminal stance is all about subjective double-standards, (and so also against all objectively equal universal rights and responsibilities for everyone else); where one asserts that only one’s own “better” faction has rights, while all others have only responsibilities to one’s self and one’s faction, then of course pretty-much each and every issue one addresses will be inconsistent and seemingly irrational and “libtarded!” But they are deliberate habitual choices and consistently follow a clear principle of victim-blaming, slanderous, adversarial selfishness. One cannot by mere random chance be so perfectly wrong about everything all the time due to inherent “stupidity;” by chance one would get the occasional fact right, and be able to solve the occasional problem. But libertine “liberal” criminals aren’t about solving objective problems for the universal good of all.

They are all about objectifying “the Other” – without victims to blame, they couldn’t be parasites.

They “project” by slandering everyone else as trying to get ahead by putting others down (i.e: their hatred of basic economics aka capitalism, where one actually has to work in order to acquire and own stuff; whereby they assert that capitalists only really ever enslave working people)! But what they really mean is, they’d like to enslave the capitalists! The implication is that those evil makers shouldn’t be allowed to corral investors to build factories and companies, hire staff or buy office furniture etc, unless and until they agree to forego their profits and give them to the takers, first!

They claim that nobody else should ever have any right to own property, or even to be reimbursed for their labor, since they simply can’t be bothered to work to acquire any property for them selves!

Criminals are lazy in that they’d rather complain about being others’ victims than make stuff.

What they want is no less than the officially-recognized right to remain irresponsibly wrong enshrined into law, so that the largest gang, aka the government, can take the makers stuff and transfer it to the takers. Their official term for this blatant robbery is “Wealth Redistribution,” and they like to pretend they are all virtuous, Robin-Hood-like figures for expounding their crime-is-good philosophy.

And when they get caught out, they always say “So? It’s not bad, because We (i.e: you) all do it too!”

Social media just isn’t for extreme conservatives. You all should have never signed up to any social media service in the first place.
commented 2016-05-23 15:57:16 -0400
I deleted my page over a year ago and have never felt better, I want nothing to do with Suckerberg or his grandioso. His pathetic attempt to mend fences with conservatives is just his way of appeasing his critics while still maintaining total control of his low information audience. Facebook is for people with too much time on their hands.
commented 2016-05-23 15:29:49 -0400
Ron Bassilian said, " I’m also setting my FB account up for permanent deletion."

I tried deleting my account once but they never deleted it. From what I understand that even if you do manage to get it “deleted”, your pages is not removed from their server.
commented 2016-05-23 15:08:32 -0400
Not sure anyone is aware but probably, but they silently block your posts as well. Your posts on FB just don’t get spread. Anything mostly political of my posts which are conservative never go anywheres anymore unless you visit my facebook page. I know many of my friends that agree with me, never see them unless they visit my page. But if I post on anything else that is sensless they go through … FB is a laughable social media joke. … Really…!
commented 2016-05-23 14:54:29 -0400
I have been censored too. My comments are always blocked on the CBC, even if very mild, MSM, too. They are using blanket terms like the extreme right, the uneducated right, the violent right, etc. But it is all propaganda used to discredit the right. There is no longer more than one opinion as the dismantling of the west nears its conclusion.
commented 2016-05-23 14:36:01 -0400

You do realize that Mark Zuckerberg is Jewish right?

So your notion that Facebook has a problem with Jews is laughable.
commented 2016-05-23 14:17:43 -0400
It’s really no different than Fox News claiming to be fair and balanced. They are not. Fox News is a shill for the Republican party. But they are privately owned and can do what they want.

The people behind Facebook, including Mark Zuckerberg are liberals/progressives. A conservative isn’t going to start up such a thing – ALL social media is pretty much run by liberals. So I don’t know why this is a shock to people here on The Rebel that your particular kind of views and opinions are not really welcome on Faceback or represent what Facebook is all about per their culture regarding social issues and the like.

You may have noticed when gay marriage was made legal in America – Facebook exploded with support and members changing their avatar to a rainbow image. This is what I am talking about. Facebook is not for conservatives, but feel free to use it anyway to keep in contact with your friends and family.

Call me a throw back to a time before social media. I have never had face book, and would never use face book. I don’t twitter, tweet, or beep, guess I am not one of the sheep.
I just don’t get this obsession with things like face book. I never had the desire to have an I-Pod or any other kind of pod. Blue Berries, Raspberries, Strawberries are for eating, never had any of those either, and I have absolutely no need or use for a smart phone, to me they are like the smart car driven by a dumb driver. Guess what, I do have a cel phone, what is more shocking is that I use it as a phone, and only a phone. No texting, and I have it set up with my phone service provider to have all text messaging blocked. Oh and no apps either, what a relief, just about forgot, no voice mail either, my phone is just a simple flip flop. When my phone rings, I do not have the Pavlov’s Dog urge need to even look at my phone, let alone answer it. Call display, no name, too bad.
I just don’t get this thing of having to be connected, it is like an addiction for a lot of people, unbelievable.

What is it about the rich and famous that makes them think they can lie and get away with it? Zuckerberg lied his face off about the censorship issue. Then he makes up a phoney meeting with some so called conservative media personalities to try to make it look like he cares about anything other than his own agenda.
Fakebook has run its course. People should abandon it because it is just a massive grab at your personal information and privacy.

I’ve been suspended repeatedly from Facebook for simply supporting Israel or talking about anti-Semitic graffiti in my neighborhood. It’s come to the point that I don’t feel like it’s a viable forum for discussion anymore. I wrote a couple blog posts about it. I’m also setting my FB account up for permanent deletion.
commented 2016-05-23 12:30:07 -0400
This is why I do not have a FaceBook Account. FaceBook is also Anti-Christian. Try to post anything pro life or pro Christian and see where it gets you.

CBC censors by the minute $ 3 million+++ per day the price to keep a small handful of the totally obtuse under their comfy blanket. ..of course pm Zoolander calls this culture

Jim Schulz — I sympathize with your frustration with the CBC, but I hope you will continue to (try to) post comments. It would be a sad day for conservative thinkers if the CBC managed to censor them into oblivion.

I managed to get another version of my comments posted by first making a comment about censorship…It took the moderator awhile to decide whether to allow the censorship comment or not ;)

Keep up the good fight — someone needs to keep those CBC bastards honest.

I’ve seen a few comments here to the effect of ‘just stop using facebook’. I’m not sure that is reasonable for people like Lauren, Ezra, Mark Steyn, and others who are in the business of communicating with the public. Nor is it fair to the members of the public who choose to follow them. Nor should it be necessary. Facebook holds itself out as an organization that welcomes differing opinions; but it is clear that is not the case. I have not been banned, but I do know many who have – and without exception they are people who hold conservative views.

Leftists on the other hand seem to be able to post whatever they want, regardless of how vile, foul or violent their language is, or how uncivilized or otherwise inappropriate the intent of the post is.

I agree with Lauren – Facebook is privately owned and should be able to run the site as the owners see fit. But they should stop lying about their brazen attempts to shut down conservative viewpoints.

“Free speech me me, but not for thee.”

should read

“Free speech for me, but not for thee.”

The socialists/left in Canada and America are all about censoring conservatives while claiming they are the champions of free speech. The idiots don’t even recognize how hypocritical that is.

The mantra of the socialists/left/SJWs is “Free speech me me, but not for thee.”

Keith Richards,

MySpace was NOTHING compared to Facebook. That’s like comparing The Rebel with Fox News when it comes to conservative media.

Do you actually know what on the cusp means? Facebook is not going anywhere – but keep praying for it’s demise. Hell, even if The Rebel is linked to Facebook.
