So, on the 16th of this month, you may recall that I wrote a post about Jay Carney. I linked to it on our Facebook page, with a caption that read, "Jay Carney can kiss my assular area."
I have no regrets about that. FYI.
This morning, when I went to hop on facebook before coming to work, I was greeted with the following message:
So I'm thinking perhaps someone's tried to hack my account. Because the next screen is this:
Then I was shown a series of photos from many of my different facebook friends, and asked to choose from a list of names who those people were. I got through that nonsense, and then saw this:
And I was all, "WHIZZUH WHUZZAH???" How in the world did that violate any content policies? There were freaking "Kill Mitt Romney" pages during the election, and that was completely fine, and yet I can't tell Jay Carney to kiss my assular area??? SERIOUSLY? The next message was this:
There was one more screen which said that this was the SECOND violation, and that another violation would result in the banning of my Facebook account completely. And now, I am unable to post to our FB page, although Daisy inexplicably still can (THANK GOODNESS).
Here's the thing. We keep stuff pretty clean at our FB page, especially compared to some of the liberal trolls who not only drive by our page but also have their own TOTALLY OBSCENE pages. We are not the first conservative page to face this kind of silencing by Facebook and we likely won't be the last. We are starting our Tea Party Community page so that if and when (since it's likely inevitable) we get shut down by FB for good, we can build our community there. Go sign up there - because conservatives are allowed to speak their minds there without retribution. We will have that as our back up page. Thanks to all of you who have signed on so far.
I'm fairly certain that the Wall of Shame trolls who we out for their behavior have banded together to "report" our page as often as they can, which automatically puts us on a FB watch list. It doesn't matter. We will not be silenced. If we get shut down there, we will launch a full scale media attack, and will simply keep going here and on the other community site linked above.
SUCK IT, FACEBOOK.
