If I had a nickel for every time I’ve heard or seen conservatives pine for a free-speech alternative to Facebook, I could retire a very wealthy man. Recently, as we and others have reported, Facebook — the site appropriately dubbed “Iron FistBook” by cartoonist A.F. Branco — has engaged in what can only be called a digital version of “Kristallnacht,” appearing to target mostly conservatives, punishing them for daring to earn a living through their hard work.
Whenever we report these abuses — and that’s what they are — conservatives wonder when someone is going to create a free speech alternative.
The truth is, there’s already several in operation just waiting for you.
Here’s just a few (with many thanks to our friend Jeff Dunetz, for putting quite a bit of this together):

There are other sites, and we will add them as we find them. If you know of an alternative not listed here, please let us know in the comment section below.
Granted, none of these sites have the reach Facebook has. But think about it — Mark Zuckerberg didn’t start with two billion users.
So what are your choices? You can jump ship, or maybe you’re one of those who love being under Mark Zuckerberg’s thumb. Fine — that’s your choice. Maybe you like being treated like someone out of George Orwell’s “1984.” Perhaps you need someone to tell you what to think, or what you’re allowed to see.
But the choice is yours. You can use more than one social media site, get off Facebook completely, or stay on Facebook exclusively. But if that’s your choice, remember — you’re not a customer, you’re the product.
Worse yet, you’re Facebook’s slave…
And if that’s your choice, don’t complain when you get abused… And trust us, you will.
And to be clear, we’d like to see Facebook get squared away, because it is a fantastic tool with great potential. But the current enforcement regime — which more resembles the “Thought Police” — looks more like something out of Orwell’s classic novel. And it doesn’t appear the company is ever going to change for the better.
