Facebook Deletes Disabled Veteranís Page Without Warning ó After Taking $300,000 for Ads
Breitbart ^ | October 16, 2018 | Lucas Nolan

Facebook blacklisted the conservative news page run by disabled Air Force veteran Brian Kolfage with no warning or explanation — after he reportedly spent more than $300,000 on Facebook advertising.

On his new website which aims to put an end to social media censorship, Air Force veteran and triple-amputee Brian Kolfage explains who he is and the challenges he’s facing stating: “I'm a veteran of The United States Air Force. I was severely wounded in Combat, on 9/11/2004 while serving in Iraq I lost both my legs entirely and my right hand. I'm the most severely wounded US Airman to survive.”

Kolfage has no plans to quietly allow Facebook to delete the pages and work he has invested thousands of hours into. “If I have to roll into their headquarters and sit there with people in the media, I will,” said Kolfage. “I will be there exposing everything they’ve done to me and my family and our employees. We’re going to take legal action if we don’t get our pages back. It’s just going to turn into a sloppy mess for them. I think they’ve underestimated what they’re dealing with, attacking me, attacking conservatives in general, right before the elections. Never once did Facebook come to us to say there was any issue with RWN or our other pages. Never. But they sure loved taking our money.”

Why isn’t that grand theft and interstate wire fraud?

Sounds like a breach of contract by Facebook.

He should initiate with a lawsuit, and requested damages so large that even facebook will notice. If necessary, he should join with a lot of the other banned pages and shoot for class action status.

That could kick it from the tens of millions of dollars into the hundreds of millions of dollars lawsuit.
