Censorship: Facebook deletes pages of political activists – Huge Purge of Free Speech.

271212imageFacebook bans Gandhi quote as part of revisionist history purge
(NaturalNews) The reports are absolutely true. Facebook suspended the Natural News account earlier today after we posted an historical quote from Mohandas Gandhi. The quote reads:

“Among the many misdeeds of British rule in India, history will look upon the Act depriving a whole nation of arms as the blackest.” – Mohandas Gandhi, an Autobiography, page 446.

This historical quote was apparently too much for Facebook’s censors to bear. They suspended our account and gave us a “final warning” that one more violation of their so-called “community guidelines” would result in our account being permanently deactivated.

Important Update: Facebook Panics: Reactivates Political Critics, Activists and Free Speech Bloggers Accounts

They then demanded we send them a color copy of a “government issued identification” in order to reactivate our account. Our account was removed from suspension just minutes before InfoWars posted its article on this Facebook censorship, and the Facebook page is now functioning at:
www.Facebook.com/NaturalNews

This is a separate account from our primary Facebook account, which has nearly 250,000 followers at:
www.Facebook.com/HealthRanger

Logic is an enemy and history is a menace

That Facebook would choose to disable our account after we posted a Gandhi quote is incredibly shocking. The imgres-1historical rise of oppressed Indian people against tyrannical British rule is apparently no longer allowed to be discussed on Facebook. The very IDEA of a free people overcoming tyrannical government rule now “violates community guidelines.” The removal of this content is akin to online book burning and the destruction of history.

Censorship: Facebook deletes pages of 9/11 activists 

By Victoria N. Alexander,digitaljournal.com –

In the past twenty-four hours, Facebook has removed the pages of about fifty political activists. Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth founder, Richard Gage lost his page, as did several other activists.

Several people associated with the alternative news website InfoWars.com have also had their pages removed today. InfoWars reports,

In September 2011, Infowars reporter Darrin McBreen was told by Facebook staff not to voice his political opinion on the social networking website. Responding to comments McBreen had made about off-grid preppers being treated as criminals, the “Facebook Team” wrote, “Be careful making about making (sic) political statements on facebook,” adding, “Facebook is about building relationships not a platform for your political viewpoint. Don’t antagonize your base. Be careful and congnizat (sic) of what you are preaching.”

The Facebook purge includes those who have posted pro-Second Amendment statements and/or made comments about the report made by the Washington Post /CBS News that another gunman had been arrested in the woods near Sandy Hook Elementary after the shooting.

The office of Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth reports that Mr. Gage has never made any statements about gun ownership on his page. The AE911 office also confirms that a number of 9/11 activists have been targeted by Facebook. Read more: http://www.digitaljournal.com/article/339963#ixzz2GLbFxPt3

  1. I think this is among the most vital information for me.
    And i’m glad reading your article. But wanna remark on
    some general things, The website style is great, the articles is really nice :
    D. Good job, cheers

  2. Ah, censorship! It has happened to me so many times and in so many ways, but to stay on subject regarding Facebook alone, I was locked out of FB when running for Congress as a replacement candidate back in 2011 on a platform of “People Before Profit”. This happened two weeks prior to the election and I too had to submit a government issued ID to get back into my account. They didn’t let me access my account right away which forced me to create a second account and when inquiring when I would be reinstated into my old account they responded that I was already in, knowing full well that it was a second account and that I could never re-establish all my contacts and groups in time to prevail in the election. I eventually did gain access to my first account and all my contacts, but by then it was too late. One day I will tell you about my experiences with the mail, e-mail, disabled website, internet radio interference and far more than can be mentioned in a mere comment. I don’t wonder any longer, “Will I be censored?” but instead “HOW will I be censored?”. Don’t be discouraged, if you are reading this. Just “Sallieforth” with me! I have narrowed my concerns to one dire issue and hope that you will read my blog. To your health! http://BillionToddlerMarchForSurvival.blogspot.com

  3. I hardly leave a response, howevr i did some searching
    and wiund up here Censorship: Facebook deleetes pages of political activists – Hugee Purge oof Free Speech.
    | Worldwide Hippies. And I do have a couple of questions for you if you don’t mind.

    Is it only me or does it look like a few off these remarks appear like they are coming from brain dead people?
    😛 And, if you are writing on additional online sites, I’d like to keep up with everything new yoou have to post.
    Woild you list of all of your community pages like
    your twitter feed, Facebook page or linhkedin profile?

  4. My Facebook account “Ompu Datu Rasta Sipelebegu” has been deactivated by Facebook for about 3 years now. My Facebook friends have made a Facebook page called “Reactivate Ompu Datu Rasta Sipelebegu Account” but to no avail. The page site is here https://www.facebook.com/pages/Reactivate-Ompu-Datu-Rasta-Sipelebegu-Account/157846130900373

    After I sent emails of protest to Facebook asking them the reasons for my account deactivation, their only short (robot) reply was that THERE WERE COMPLAINS LODGED AGAINST MY ACCOUNT but Facebook failed to explain what those complains were!

  5. Go to Facebook sponsors and complain. Don’t complain to Facebook, and don’t complain to the Socialist news media… Threaten to boycott their sponsors.

  6. This is NOT a freedom of speech issue. So many people misunderstand the 1st amendment. #1 just says you cannot be arrested for speaking your mind. No one is trying to arrest you. FB is private property and they are allowed to regulate their own site as they see fit. I am not saying I agree or disagree with them, I’m just saying I’m tired of hearing people cry “freedom of speech!” who don’t understand it.

    1. You Sir, do not understand the Commons. Your comment is untrue, not factual and shows a lack of education.
      Fox News is not a good source for “Free Speech” information. FB operates because of Taxpayer funded development and security of the Internet. The Internet is owned by the “Commons” and as such must be free of what you Sir call private property.

      1. Typical, insult people who say something you don’t agree. That’s very “educated” of you. I say again, this is NOT a freedom of speech issue. If you were not arrested or fined your freedom of speech is very much in tact. 1ST Amendment only guarantees you won’t be arrested/penalized for speaking. It does NOT guarantee you an audience.
        Also, I’m going to go out on a limb here and say FB operates on its $1billion+ of annual revenue not tax payer money. FB is private property and they can regular their site as they want- just like I could chose to kick you out of my house if you were vulgar or insulted my family.

      2. Oh and I gotta laugh at the “FOX news” comment. I don’t watch FOX first of all. And secondly, this is the amusingly stupid battle cry of all the armchair activists: “you’re a sheep because you get your news off of website A, I get my news off of website B so I know the truth!”.

      3. FOX News is the only US purveyoor of TRUTH in the whols nmedia, YOu must be an obabot blooming , rotting Socialist. I feel sorry for America with thise such as you, sucking on HER dieing body.
