I Was Banned From Facebook for Defending Rape Victims
The censor happy PC lunatics at Facebook are entirely too familiar to my regular readers. I’ve been blocked from the world’s most popular social network for thirty days at a clip more times than I can recall. Whether it’s a meme about hyperinflation getting flagged as racist, or daring to criticize communist mass murderers like Che Guevera, or the bland comparison of a politician to Hitler, Facebook’s hypersensitivity to race and other issues has been well documented.
With tensions flaring over the invasion of Europe, things have been taken to a new low. Back in September, German Chancellor Angela Merkel pledged to crack down on “hate speech” against “migrants” (invaders herein), and prodded social media outlets like Facebook to help censor criticism of the invasion. Merkel and Zuckerberg were later caught on a hot mic confirming that Facebook was assisting in the censorship.
On New Year’s Eve, months after Sweden’s very accommodating immigration policy got them dubbed “The Rape Capitol of the West“, hundreds of sexual assaults by invaders against European women were reported all across Europe. The rapists reportedly taunted police saying “I am Syrian. You have to treat me kindly. Mrs Merkel invited me“. Rather than look at the problem, the government fired the Chief of Police in Cologne, Germany.
“Vigilante” groups have risen to defend German women against the attacks. Having been largely disarmed by their governments, German citizens emptied stores of pepper spray and other less effective self defense items. Mass demonstrations broke out against the government’s immigration policies in response, and police sent more forces to stop them than they did the rapists.
The German government now takes right wing speech as a greater threat than mass rape of their own citizens, and they are getting help from the social networks in treating it that way. On January 8th, Twitter “unverified” Breitbart Tech Editor Milo Yiannopoulos for unspecified rules violations.
Today, I got the all too familiar “You must log back into facebook” message I have seen dozens of times before. I was subsequently made aware that a post made to the “Gun Rights” Facebook page, which has over 200,000 Facebook Likes, had been removed for unspecified violations of “community standards”.
The post read as follows “In Germany, as well as in other parts of Europe, thousands of women were sexually abused and gang raped by gangs of migrants. If they had the right to carry, then they would have had the right to defend themselves. Migrants raping women in Europe has become a crisis. Yet Europe continues to disarm its people. They continue to make it harder for them to fight back against the people their government imported. This is why we need guns”.
It is worth noting, that though the image above shows this post is made by me, it was made by another admin and posted as the “Gun Rights” Facebook page. I am not sure why Facebook opted to show it to me in this context. All admins of the page received the same notice, but with their own name and profile picture being shown as the poster.
I personally was blocked from posting to Facebook for 30 days as a result of the post.
The “Gun Rights” Facebook page was subsequently unpublished by Facebook, but is now back online.
This is a troubling trend that seems to get worse by the day. The Internet had once provided us with a means of breaking from from mainstream media narratives and giving each individual a voice. But, as political correctness and government policy bring pressure to bear on popular online gathering places, that is ceasing to be the case. Expressing political opinions that run contrary to PC narratives or government policy will now get you silence on the most popular platforms, and as internet regulations steadily increase we can expect this to also come at the ISP level.
Good faith negotiations with powerful left wing ideologues is impossible. They use force and deception to get their way. They stand against self defense and defend foreign rapists over their own countrymen. If libertarians, conservatives, and other sane people hope to have any chance at honest political discourse, the trend must be stopped by any means necessary.
