For the past 5 or more years, Facebook and other tech giants have been systematically targeting conservatives in an attempt to silence them and the truth.
They have labeled many conservatives as fake news (when telling the truth) or offensive (only to liberals but that doesn’t matter to them).
This past week, Facebook took down over 900 pages and accounts, most of which were those of conservatives.
Mark Zuckerberg claims he has the First Amendment right to censor whatever he wants on HIS social media platform
Conservatives contend that Facebook is not a private but public platform and therefore, their censorship is violation of the First Amendment.
A case is now before the US Supreme Court that will decide if Facebook can silence and shut down every conservative or if conservatives have the First Amendment right to post using the social media platform.
The Gateway Pundit – For over a year The Gateway Pundit has spoken out about how the tech and social media giants are censoring and eliminating conservative publishers and conservative content.
*** In September The Gateway Pundit founder Jim Hoft testified to Congress on Facebook targeting of conservative publishers and content.
The Gateway Pundit has repeatedly reported on tech giant censorship of conservative content.
These powerful tech firms act as gatekeepers and prevent conservative content from being shared online.
In 2016 we were one of the few conservative sites that supported candidate Trump – along with Breitbart, The Drudge Report, Infowars, Zero Hedge and Conservative Treehouse. We are proud of our efforts to report the truth that led to Trump’s historic win.
One of the Facebook pages that was shutdown in the purge of conservatives only posted Scripture and prayers and nothing else indicating just how much Facebook hates what is true and good.
Another Facebook account that was shutdown had over 900,000 followers.
Another account that was closed was that of a triple amputee veteran and the shutdown cost him $315.000 of lost revenue.
All toll, the conservative purge effects millions of followers from across the country and world.
If Facebook wins, it will not only silence conservatives, but it will put many of the out of business.
We need you to pray that the Supreme Court makes the right decision.
