Facebook can’t have this. It might get in the way of Hillary’s being elected!
Two of the biggest and most influential libertarian pages on Facebook, Being Libertarian (nearly 120,000 likes) and Occupy Democrats Logic (over 130,000 likes), have been removed by the company.
It isn’t clear why Being Libertarian was removed, but here is a statement from the administrator:
Being Libertarian has been officially unpublished. We continue to contend that we did not break Facebook community standards, and have made an appeal to Facebook to restore the page.
We are not going to give up. We’ll rebuild from the ground if we must. But we need your help. Share this post to your pages, your profiles, and everywhere else you can manage to place it, and tell the rest of the Facebook community what is going on. Let’s send some market signals.
Occupy Democrats Logic, which offers rebuttals to the progressive page Occupy Democrats, was removed for posting the picture on the right below. Explanation courtesy of the Being Classically Liberal page:
Vocal social justice advocate Shaun King shares a picture, which is then liked and shared by 35k people, of a statue of a bare naked Donald Trump (I censored the image as a courtesy to those who don’t want to be exposed to nudity on facebook without warning.)
Apparently, this is just fine and in accordance with facebook’s code of conduct. But when Occupy Democrats Logic shared the image to the right, which actually made a valid point, they got permanently banned.
