In an interview with the Gateway Pundit’s Alicia Powe, Clash Daily’s Doug Giles shredded Facebook, the social media giant dubbed the “world’s most dangerous censor,” accusing the company of lying about the excuses it used to remove his page. As we and others reported, the company deleted over 800 pages and accounts in what can only be described as a digital “Kristallnacht.” According to the company, the pages and users affected allegedly used fake accounts to spread “spammy” material.
But Giles said that’s not true and challenged the company to prove their assertions.
“I don’t care how Facebook slices it. All the little diddles, they say ‘he did this, he did this, he did this’ – I answered them like ‘no, we didn’t.’ We don’t have fake accounts,” he told Powe. “We give our damn drivers’ licenses to you. We have got to do two party notification. We don’t spam people – prove it. If you’ve got all this evidence mounting against clashdaily.com, put your cards on the table Zuckerberg and let’s let the best man win.”
He wasn’t finished, telling Powe:
“If Facebook is really after fake news then they should turn their attention to CNN and MSNBC,” he continued. “We are just patriotic, freedom flag, country loving news organization that doesn’t pull any kind of punches whatsoever. We are conservative. We put that up front in our ‘about us’ tab and we let people know that we are conservative and libertarian leaning. We don’t make any bones about it.
“We are talking about a page that we’ve been working on for six years – it’s not the biggest page in the world but its still 2 million people and we spent six figures building it. And because they accused us of ‘spamming’ and having fake accounts and putting forth ‘fake news,’ they deemed us unworthy for their platform.”
Giles also said that in his opinion, Facebook was not motivated by any desire to combat so-called “fake news,” but instead is simply reacting to President Trump’s electoral victory and acting on its own desire to stifle free speech.
“It has little to do with fake news that Clash Daily and others are spawning. It has everything to do with the Trump wave that is completely crushing the media and crushing the left,” Giles said. “They want to suppress freedom of expression, so they have these ambiguous rules, these vagaries so they can avoid lawsuits that are coming at them, and just do away with us like we don’t exist and we don’t matter.”
Giles said he intends to continue the fight, but has no desire to ever use Facebook again.
“We are definitely going to fight it, but I’m not fighting it to get back on,” he told the Gateway Pundit. “I’ve been dealing with that manic group over at Facebook – their like ‘you can’t do that headline, you can’t do that meme, you can’t say this.’ It’s like dealing with a neurotic girlfriend that you cannot please no matter what you do , and finally she says ‘we’re finished.’ You’re like ‘hallelujah,’ grab a chug of vodka, drink it and go smoke a cigar and hang out with the brothers.
“If they put me back on tomorrow, I wouldn’t populate their page because there is no pleasing them. They will do it again, unless there is some kind of government anti-trust regulation – Let somebody go in there and take Facebook out at the knees. Let them compete with them come on there are some billionaires that are on our side that are sitting on a stack of cash. Again, if they take out the infantry, which we are, then they are coming for the cavalry, and then they are coming for the generals. It might take a little longer, but they are coming, I guarantee it.”
