    Facebook Purges Over 800 Accounts With Millions Of Followers; Prominent Conservatives Vanish

    Just in time for midterms, Facebook has removed 559 pages and 251 accounts they claim have been spreading misinformation and spam. Several of the pages however - some with millions of followers, were pro-Trump conservatives who had spent years cultivating their followings.
    Facebook has unpublished our page

    After 5 years of building fans Facebook has officially unpublished our page (3.1 million fans) so we can't post on it anymore. This is truly an outrage and we are devastated. We will do everything we can to recover our page and fight back. pic.twitter.com/H3AmHTT8Qo

    I’ve been memory holed from FaceBook! 350k followers poof gone! There is a dangerous precedent being set here where the big tech companies have appointed themselves as the gate keepers of political thought and opinion! Retweet this if you care about free-speech! #FreeDicks pic.twitter.com/LsnZvaJyOL

    Facebook claims that "domestic actors" have been creating "fake pages and accounts to attract people with shocking political news," reports Bloomberg.
    "The people behind the activity also post the same clickbait posts in dozens of Facebook Groups, often hundreds of times in a short period, to drum up traffic for their websites," Facebook said in a Thursday blog post. "And they often use their fake accounts to generate fake likes and shares. This artificially inflates engagement for their inauthentic pages and the posts they share, misleading people about their popularity and improving their ranking in news feed."
    Some pages Facebook removed had large followings of real and fake accounts. Nation in Distress, a conservative meme page, was followed by more than 3 million people, according to the Internet Archive, which stores historical versions of websites and other online content. -Bloomberg
    Facebook has removed "559 Pages and 251 accounts" in the US "that have consistently broken our rules against spam and coordinated inauthentic behavior." They include:

    -Nation in Distress
    -Reasonable People Unite
    -The Resistance
    -Reverb Press
    -Right Wing News
    -Snowflakes
    — Craig Silverman (@CraigSilverman) October 11, 2018
    That said, not all of the accounts with large followings were conservative; Reverb Press, for example, had over 700,000 followers and constantly attacked President Trump and Republicans, who they referred to as "cheating scumbags."

    The Marxists in charge of the social media companies are the enemy of freedom. This is just another reason why I as a libertarian am glad to ally myself with the GOP.

    I am a libertarian. I am advocating everyone enjoy maximum freedom on both personal and economic issues as long as they do not bring violence unto others.

    If I knew how to design a website I'd make one called politicallyincorrectbook and the only way you'd be banned is if you're caught trying not to offend anyone. I'd have a filter that finds words and phrases like "Sorry" and "I didn't mean to"

    Nation in Distress was publishing totally fake info, I happen to have noticed this just a few days ago when a friend shared one of their postings.

    It was a simple comparison of Trump Vs Obama. The first stat was approval rating - they were showing Trump's approval rating far higher than Obama. Then they had Trump only having a deficit of a few hundred billion, and a few other stats along that line.

    I get really tired of totally fake information and that one irked me more than usual so I responded. I put a link to realclearpolitics poll averages, none of the individual polls could even support trump's approval rating they gave. If you go back in time to comparison polls about 22 months in to O's term the numbers didn't match anywhere close either.

    It wasn't even like they were cherry picking specific poll results, they really were outright falsehoods.

    The propaganda machine is strong with the Trump supporters, truth doesn't matter.

    However making up $#@! on the Internet is nothing new.

    So what happens 100 years from now when our children try to look back on history to reflect and find the sources of their problems? Will we appear to them to have never even made an effort to stand against tyranny? If you look something up in the far future about Ron Paul or ANYTHING any of US have said here on the forums, will that also be deleted from the annals of history? How could the controllers portray who and what we are today when they have total control over what it appears that we have said and edit out what they dont like? Will all thats left of RPF be what Zippyjuan said about the Federal Reserve? That we never uttered a challenge against the utter destruction of our Constitution? If we try to look back to our own history, are we seeing history for what truly happened, or the way the True Rulers of this country have edited it out to be?

    According to Bloomberg the reason those accounts were removed was not proper identification of the users. That's not new, I have a few privacy minded friends who have to get new accounts on a regular basis when their information is determined to not be accurate.

    The consequences are much deeper than people assume.

    Not only has Facebook deemed that these people will be cut off from the rest of the world, which includes their ideas, but the people who got banned will also be punished. It may not even be obvious or visible, but rest assured, since they obviously pissed off the Status Quo enough to get banned, there will be OTHER consequences. Ten bucks says their credit scores probably also just dropped. They WILL be under suspicion and possibly placed on NO FLY lists. Other places could add their names to Blacklists, not to be hired, not to be given loans, not to be recommended as "friends" to other people. There are MANY possibilities, but rest assured, there ARE consequences beyond what we can see.

    Purged Journalists Speak Out

    Facebook purged hundreds of pages
    from its platform on Thursday. But instead of the usual targets - namely Russia and Iran - Thursday’s ban shut down accounts operated by independent American reporters and activists … Most of the pages that were banned … were independent media outlets and pages that advocated for marijuana legalization or shined a light on police brutality.

    In total, Facebook removed 559 pages and 251 personal accounts … Facebook said, going on to accuse the accounts of manipulating the platform to make their content appear more popular, hawking fake products or functioning as ad farms that tricked "people into thinking that they were forums for legitimate political debate."

    The founder of one of the pages — The Anti-Media — said he had no knowledge of his page engaging in any such behavior. The Free Thought Project co-founder similarly denied Facebook's accusations. Rachel Blevins, a reporter for RT America whose personal journalism page was nixed, also denied inauthentic behavior.

    Just hours after its ban from Facebook, Twitter suspended Anti-Media from its platform, [coordinated collusion?} …

    Facebook has been partnering with the Digital Forensics Lab, an arm of the Atlantic Council think tank — a neoconservative group funded by Gulf monarchies and defense giants like Raytheon — to weed out inauthentic users from its platform. Similarly, it has been partnering with the neoconservative Weekly Standard magazine to fact check so-called fake news. …

    Independent reporter John Vibes, who contributes to The Free Thought Project and other websites:
    the internet has lowered that barrier to entry and allowed the average person to become the media themselves. This obviously took market share and influence away from the traditional media, and it has allowed for a more diverse public conversation. … the platforms … are favoring “mainstream” sources and silencing alternative voices. …
    when someone is shot by police, mainstream media sources often just republish the press release from the police department, without presenting the victim's side of the story. We give the victims and their families a voice … This also goes for bigger issues like foreign policy as well; multiple full-scale invasions of Syria have been prevented because of information that the alternative media made viral.

    "Information exchange" activist Jason Bassler, who co-founded The Free Thought Project and solely founded Police the Police, both of which were banned:
    We were verified by Facebook with a little check mark next to our name, so they know we are a legitimate organization/outlet. They have seen our "Articles of Organization" … issued by the state of Louisiana … We have even paid Facebook to boost our posts … they gladly took our money … Do we get that money back now? … I never thought I would have built fan pages of 5 million fans, nor did I ever think we would employ and give jobs to nine other activists (at one point), but I was inspired to do what I could to plant seeds and combat the mainstream media's bullsh*t narratives, to keep police and government accountable …
    All that's gone now with a click of a button. Six years of hard work, literally seven days a week, working our as*es off finding stories, researching them, writing them, making thumbnails and titles for them, making graphics and videos for them, sharing them on various social media outlets. …

    Rachel Blevins, a correspondent for RT America:
    Today I was locked out of my Facebook account … my public page was "unpublished." There appears to be no explanation for this other than the vague claim from Facebook that my page was taken down because it was "administered by a fake account, misleading users or violating the Facebook spam policies." I am the only person who publishes posts on my page; the only posts I publish are articles I have written or videos of my reports, and I only post one or two times a day — which rules out all of the claims that I have violated Facebook's policies. My page had nearly 70,000 followers … I have poured the last four years into building my page as a journalist …

    Nicholas Bernabe, founder of The Anti-Media:
    Our approach generally is to cover stories and angles that corporate media underreport or misreport and to amplify activist and anti-war voices and stories. All of our content is professionally fact-checked and edited. … there was a need for media that challenged mainstream assumptions and biases in politics. I wanted to shed light on corruption and wrongdoing against oppressed peoples and cover the harsh truth about American foreign policy. Over the last 28 days, we reached 7,088,000 people on Facebook. The timing of this purge is rather dubious … coming shortly before the midterm elections. This could be an attempt by Facebook itself to affect the outcome of the coming elections. The Twitter suspension caught me by surprise. … these suspensions were a coordinated effort to stifle our message ahead of the coming elections.

    What's next? I will fight this until I am utterly exhausted. We will fight back tooth and nail. I don't care if that means protesting in front of Facebook headquarters (which I've already considered doing many times in the past two years), I will make sure people know how corrupt and untrustworthy Facebook is if it's the last thing I do. You can't just steal years of hard work from someone and not expect there to be consequences. I will do everything I can to make their lives miserable. That's a promise.

    From The Free Thought Project: First They Came for Alex Jones

    Social media giants launched a massive purge of independent media on Thursday effectively wiping out hundreds of liberty-minded pages. October 11, 2018 will be remembered in history as the day the tech giants attempted to wipe out independent, liberty-minded, antiwar media from the airwaves. On Thursday, in a coordinated effort, hundreds of pages devoted to peace and liberty were memory holed by social media giants.

    As part of its purge, Facebook has removed the pages of several police accountability/watchdog/critic groups, including Cop Block, the Free Thought Project, and Police the Police. …

    What makes this recent purge from Facebook and Twitter so egregious is that the pages like the Free Thought Project, the Anti-Media, Press for Truth, and dozens of others, did not fit the hate speech narrative these same companies used to wipe out Alex Jones. Instead, these pages were dedicated to spreading peace, bridging the divide, bringing humanity together and holding government accountable. …

    in their statement, Facebook then suggested the real reason behind the purge — elections are coming — and pesky folks like the independent media have a way of reporting information on candidates that the mainstream tends to ignore — like war, corruption, …

    Given the activity we’ve seen — and its timing ahead of the US midterm elections — we wanted to give some details about the types of behavior that led to this action,” Facebook said, before accusing us of hawking fake products or functioning as ad farms that tricked “people into thinking that they were forums for legitimate political debate.” …

    Within all of our pages under the Free Thought umbrella, we had close to 6 million followers. Does Facebook think it knows better than the 6 million people … We also had close to 16,000 reviews on our page …

    that this was a coordinated attack by the tech giant community, shortly after the purge on Facebook, Twitter followed suit, wiping out our profiles on there as well. They gave absolutely no reason for the suspension. …

    “the internet has lowered that barrier to entry and allowed the average person to become the media themselves. … it has allowed for a more diverse public conversation. … So now, instead of allowing more people to have a voice, these platforms are creating an atmosphere where only powerful media organizations are welcome…” …

    sites like ours and the others … challenge their paradigm of control and this is a thorn in their side.

    There are no longer distinct lines between social media giants and governmentFacebook has been partnering with the Digital Forensics Lab, an arm of the Atlantic Council think tank — a neoconservative group funded by Gulf monarchies, defense giants like Raytheon, megabanks like HSBC, foreign state actors, and the US government — to weed out people like us who challenge the status quo. …

    The entity that is making censorship decisions for Facebook, as publicly announced, is the Atlantic Council, a partly US government-funded entity. At what point will the extremely tight ties between these companies and the US government end the "they are private" argument? …

    Why are these people using Facebook anyway? Why are they supporting their business by generating page hits for their profile page, earning them advertising revenue. Do you know how cheap it is to register and create a website? 70k followers can be handled on a simple pc on a residential internet connection. You want access to all those people on Facebook? Link your site in posts and tell them to get off Facebook while you are at it. Make a dozen new profiles for everyone they delete. Stop supporting Facebook.
