URGENT: Facebook censors Rebel ad about Christian genocide documentary

Rebel Staff

Today, The Rebel tried to purchase advertising on Facebook, to promote the premiere of our new documentary, Save the Christians.

You may recall that we went on a crowdfunded journalistic and humanitarian mission to Iraq last year, to report on the genocide of the region's Christians at the hands of ISIS, and to deliver some humanitarian relief as well. 

The full length documentary about what we saw there is now completed:

Save the Christians: The Forgotten Refugees will debut on Thursday, February 1, in Toronto (tickets available HERE).

Today when we attempted to buy ad space on Facebook to promote the film's premiere, Facebook turned us down.

Without giving us any reason.

We edited the proposed ad five times. It was still declined by Facebook.

Here's the ad:

Since Facebook won't let us advertise — and won't tell us why — we need your help to spread the word about this film, which tells the world about a genocide being ignored by the rest of the media.

Please CLICK HERE to learn more about the Toronto premiere of Save the Christians, buy tickets, and share this event page on Twitter and Facebook.

Thank you for helping us spread the word!

If Sweden is listed as any kind of country you would want to go to it is completely political. For that matter if Europe is listed, minus Poland, Hungary, Chechoslovakia then you are being propagandized. Just watch the video of the truck driver trying to get on a ferry at Calais.

These “best country” ratings are completely meaningless since the are totally subjective and dependant on what you want to compare. I’ve never put any stock in them.
commented 2018-01-25 16:30:30 -0500
Wow, the Swedes would disagree with that ranking, BIGLY!

Keith Barnes,

GAB isn’t the fastest growing anything.

It’s not even a pimple on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter’s ass.

Why don’t you crowdfund for your own version of Facebook and you won’t have to rely on social media sources that want nothing to do with The Rebel.

Yeah, James, that old truth mongering Rebel is so inconvenient for leftists and their agenda. To hell with real refugees being killed by everyone’s favourite peaceniks. Your much vaunted leftist compassion is soooo heartwarming.

What do you expect? Zuckerburg is a globalist and the owner (ruler) of Fagbook. The Rebel’s cause doesn’t fit Zuckerburg’s agenda.

James if you want to see what the future holds for Canada, go to Sweden or Frances no go zones.
commented 2018-01-25 02:01:24 -0500
I wonder if James feels the same way about Cakes?
commented 2018-01-25 01:48:15 -0500
James how come no tweets from Justin on the girls molested by that Syrian refugee? Oh right, the left loves people like that.
commented 2018-01-25 01:46:08 -0500
Love how the left is SCARED SHITLESS about the truth.

James CSIS says thereis a greater threat for attacks than the government admits, i guess they must be batshit crazy as well eh? Now go support your criminal PM.

James Fecesbook is pathetically hypocritical, that is the point. And many do not use it. I am not missing anything by not using it. And how about you leftwing leeches make your own money instead of being sponges. Enjoy your censored internet, no wonder you are so brainwashed.

Use GAB they will not censor You and it is the fastest growing Chat media, bar non. Used by Paul Joseph Watson and a lot of other big name Internet Stars. You can say what you like, swear, cuss, you name it. Strangely though, I see very few people using bad language.

As of late I have found Facebook interfering with what I can post at various Facebook pages. Sometimes the comment made totally disappears or is marked as spam! Fine tuning their algorithms?
commented 2018-01-24 22:09:31 -0500
Terry MacLeod,

Well that wouldn’t be me, so no.

Perhaps it’s because I don’t post things that make me look like a fucking batshit crazy kook like saying Canada is doomed!
commented 2018-01-24 21:27:53 -0500
James Crockett of course. It’s friendly to islamophiles.

Facebook works great for me.

See you there!

Lets rent a billboard truck.

Thanks for your great work.
Facebook has shut my account down. I commented on a recent National post piece containing a picture of the Trudeau brothers wearing shirts with Jesus and his face being covered with an emoji. When I saw the picture I thought of you and the mohamed pictures you published. My facebook/National Post comment read as follows: “wow! Imagine what would happen if Trudeau had a picture of Mohamed on his shirt”. The next day my account was deactivated. I then went in and created another account and made the same post, account killed in one hour. I set up another account then posted again. Account killed. If you want your facebook you had better be pro Islam. Not looking forward to M103.

I really think you need to stop relying on Facebook. Build your own platform, as others have done. Facebook is never going to allow you to communicate in the manner you’d like to, so maybe it’s time to make a change. It’s not like we all don’t know it’s going to get worse yet for Facebook users.
commented 2018-01-24 14:19:30 -0500
Hope they put the video up for Youtube rental. $5 or $10 would be a fair price.

myspace has 50 million monthly users. Facebook has 2 billion.
