Facebook escalates jihad against anti-terror conservatives

Facebook-montageIf you’re a conservative Facebook user who opposes Islamic terrorism, then you are the enemy and you must be silenced by any means necessary.  At least, that seems to be the message being put out by the social media giant.

I’ve documented a number of abuses meted out by Facebook over the last three years, but lately, it seems the social media giant has escalated what can only be called a “jihad” against those of us who oppose terrorism.

My good friend Renee Nal wrote at Examiner:

In a recent interview with Sean Hannity, Jennifer Thalasinos, the widow of a victim of last week’s terror attack in San Bernardino Nicholas Thalasinos, commented that her husband – a conservative that she believes was targeted for his views by the Muslim shooters – was previously targeted on Facebook, resulting in him being blocked for extended periods of time.

Will this presidential election be the most important in American history?

Hannity related to Thalasinos, indicating that he also had to “deal with the exact same issues” on Facebook.

Here’s audio of that interview:

She also touched on some of my issues with Facebook, which have been going on for quite some time.  Last May, for example, I wrote an article about a claim made by anti-terror expert Dave Gaubatz, who said that a representative of the Muslim Advocates (the same group Loretta Lynch spoke to, promising to prosecute speech against Islam) told him the group was working with Facebook to delete accounts critical of Islam.

Within a short period of time, Facebook falsely flagged that article as “unsafe.”  The social media site also flagged several other articles as unsafe — all of which merely mentioned Islam.

Since May of this year alone, I have been banned by Facebook at least five times — all over things I never posted:


That’s typical of what Facebook has banned me over.  If I did what Facebook did, I could face charges of forgery.  Facebook, however, gets a pass.  And I’ve heard from many others who have been banned for less.

I’ve also been told that veteran-owned businesses have also come under heavy fire in the last 6 months.  And, my source tells me, Facebook has also targeted advertising accounts.  That, however, could present a real problem for the company, especially since money is involved.

But good luck getting an attorney to actually look at or take your case, as I’ve learned the hard way.

If you recall, we reported back in September that Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg was caught on an open microphone telling German Chancellor Angela Merkel that he was working on ways to stifle news critical of “refugees.”

But it seems that it’s not just “news” of “refugees” the company is out to stifle.  It’s beginning to look as though Facebook is so dedicated to supporting followers of Islam that it’s willing to do and/or tolerate anything to silence those critical of terrorism.

It’s enough to make one wonder — does Facebook support Islamic jihad?
