Facebook censored filmmaker Phelim McAleer for reporting on fracking-related court case

Filmmaker Phelim McAleer (FrackNation, The Gosnell Movie) came on to talk about his free speech battle with Facebook.

When McAleer reported on the court proceedings related to a case brought by anti-fracking activists -- a case that isn't going their way -- Facebook suspended his page for "violating community standards."

“Facebook used to give you an opportunity to appeal if your page had been suspended," McAleeer told me. "They don’t have that any longer.”

I just watched a Matt Damian move called the Promised Land produced in 2012. They didn’t call it Racking but It Clealy was. They described how you drilled into farm land and forced high pressure water down plus chemicals. They made the movie slant towards a wicked corporation called Global which was buying rights to frack farmland in a depressed area. They made it appear the ftacking company was unethical. I normally don’t watch Damian’s movies anymore because he’s such an ass.

I hope FB, Twitter and any other “social” website that decides to ban free speech, goes bankrupt!

facebook has become a tool of the oppressor.

Facebook is a public meeting place. if Facebook bans or delete an article that is true they are culpable and Phelim McAleer has the right and should launch a law suite for at least 250 million dollars
