I was recently banned from posting on FaceBook for 7 days. I did nothing wrong! I am a Right-Wing Christian Conservative Trump Supporter! The election process in 2016 really lit a fire in my heart and rekindled my patriotism for America. The vile hate from the Democratic Left, SJWs, and the lying biased Fake news seems to be fully covered by our 1st Amendment Right. If you're a Right-Wing Conservative like me our Freedom of Speech is being taken away. Liberal companies such as FaceBook are hard at work silencing the voices of those who elected President Trump. FaceBook and other social media companies have finally realized their role in getting President Trump elected and I believe this caught them by surprise. The Media and Left-Wing Democrats thought of Trump as a joke and shrugged it off. The anger and rage that came after the election really surprised me! We never reacted like this when Obama was elected, twice I might add! I have been using FaceBook as a means to get my voice out there to other Trump supporters. So I joined as many Pro-Trump groups as I could. I now belong to around 100 groups. I make memes and write short articles based on FACTS and YES sometimes funny off the cuff to poke fun at the Liberal Left. I noticed in the last couple of months several posts made by other Trump supporters being removed. One such post was one I re-posted of a video by Henry Davis "Trump Rally Support Song" which was a parody of Billy Idol's song "Mony Mony". I reposted this video to mainly all groups with 10k to 150k members. I can share to 500k to a million members. The re-post was removed by FaceBook who claimed it violated its copyright terms. Youtube still has it running! It is a parody! I reposted the video to all groups with no problem with an added comment. "It is a parody lawyer boy! You Liberals will never stop us!" It went viral! Non-stop shares and likes every second for over 24 hours! One week later I was trying to share something else and BAM!!! FaceBook banned me for 7 days! I am not allowed to post and or join any groups! So I guess I angered the FaceBook Gestapo Nazis! This is I feel a breach of my 1st Amendment Right to Freedom of Speech. The Leftists can post vile hate speech as well as threats to the President of the United States and FaceBook gives them a free get outa FaceBook Jail Card! Each Group has Moderators who monitor and can remove and or block people who post spam or vile posts. NONE of the Moderators in any of these groups blocked or banned me!!! I am going to try to form a Class Action suit against FaceBook and this Nazi-like behavior. I really have a FEAR of posting now. I know this may sound funny but wait until it happens to YOU!!!!
To support this you just have to take one example. Universities in western culture were built upon the basis that you could challenge the status quo and that you can question the establishment. This led to developments in social awareness and healthy discussion about the directions that people should take in life. However, nowadays, free speech is being taken away from universities. This fuel for inspiration and development is being eroded by the further expansion of the so called 'safe spaces'. This reality shielding mechanism is further exacerbated by the ever notorious SJWs who constantly undermine what it is to have free speech by shouting down others who disagree with them and branding them as racists or sexists.
This is summed up perfectly by the recent case of a Yale University master who was practically forced to resign as he advocated freedom of expression regarding what people should wear. He rightly said that people can wear whatever they like whether it offends someone else or not as it is there right as a human to do so. Some of his students disagreed with him and ran a hate campaign against him, forcing him to resign.
All of this leads to a world where you have to comply with the establishment. This leads to totalitarianism. There will be no other side of the debate and we will all live in fear of speaking out and expressing ourselves. This will end badly for the development of our race if we don't act now to protect our freedom of speech.
If you look at today's society it is clear that those who have an opposing viewpoint to the status quo are demonized and destroyed. Whether it be some reality TV star who voices his opinion on gay marriage, or a person calling radical Islam what it is, if it does not fit the majority mold they are destroyed. A great philosopher once said "where opinions clash freedom rings". It's hard to have opposing opinions when people are afraid to speak. And since people seemingly everywhere are seemingly harassed and ruined for giving their opinion I say it is being lost, but that it is lost.
