*VANITY* Facebook Blocking Conservative Pages--Has It Begun?
Chicks on the Right Facebook Page | 11/7/12 | me

Posted on 11/07/2012 6:56:41 AM PST by IN Farm Girl

A Facebook page that I "like", Chicks on the Right, is reporting that they have just received a little warning from Facebook:

"Just got a notice that we may be in violation of Facebook's policies. Whizzuh whuzzah? FYI - if you notice this page going down, make sure to get the word out any way you can, because we may not be able to. Wow. Big Brother works quickly, huh?"

A poster answered: "Noticing that SAME trend on ALL republican pages.."

Another poster was more specific: "The same is happening over at Barack Insults My Intelligence. The crackdown has begun is right."

Eyes and ears open, Freepers. What have you observed today?

Here is the FB/Zuckerberg warning:
This note from Daisy earlier is what FB said is in violation of their policies, folks, but the notice said “no action is being taken at this time.” No clue what that means - except that liberals are clearly threatened by the fact that we have brains and enjoy using them. We won’t stop. But again, if you can’t access this page, make sure to keep our website address handy. We’ll always post any updates there.

And here is the “offending” post by the Chicks:
“Attention gloating, “civil-discourse”-loving, despicable, classless liberal Trolls.....today of all days, we will enjoy the heck out of banning you. Keep in mind that you have nothing to be proud of - your big “win” last night consists of an empty suit who’s done nothing for this country. In reality, you didn’t win. None of us won. Well, except China.”

That's funny. I deactivated my account earlier this morning too. I don't know if I will want to reactivate in the future. I've put a lot of memories on that page over the last few years, but as of now, I don't care to participate in anything. I'm trying not to be hateful to people, but I've got a couple of liberal friends on there and...well, I just feel hurt by the ignorance/brainwashing in this country and I no longer wish to be around it. I'm trying not to be insular, but I do feel like withdrawing from people to some degree. I'll smile and be friendly on a general level, but I don't want to share my heart to the masses if that makes sense. If not, I'm sorry...very tired and numb right now.

I deleted my Facebook account last night. Can’t afford taking time away from preparing for the eventual collapse of this nation.

I think that should be the basic default for all true Conservatives.

Our ballots didn't work. So, NOW we can vote with our dollars. It is our only recourse.

My brother and I are going to ‘pull in our horns’. No restaurants, no movies-or movie rentals, no cable, no Magazines, no business with “O” supporting US establishments, etc. Our money STAYS in our pockets.

THAT is the message they will not be able to ignore.

Boy, I know they’re a lot higher profile on FB than I am, but what they wrote is nice compared to my own comments.

I’m going to “like” the Chicks.

Is FR being blocked at FB? I don’t have a FB account so I can’t check myself

I am contemplating deactivating mine as well...not only was this "loss" bad, but my usual extroverted demeanor has gone to the wayside. I cannot fathom 4 more years with a sociopath communist in office...

granted, this was not an overwhelming majority win, but to grasp the notion that 57 million people are so bleeping braindead astounds me.

If so there is a economic opportunity for a conservative facebook type social site.

I’ve been thinking with the Chick-Fillet thing ect. that a conservative social app with links to conservative businesses might go over well.

To join or get a business listing you’d have to agree to support traditional marriage and some other conservative positions.

I am developing it for mobile devices.

Freep mail me if you are interested.

Don’t need to read anything else from liberal acquaintances to make me even more depressed.

If you haven’t figured out that Facebook, Google, and LinkdIn are Democrat fundraising tools then you need a wake-up call.

They are working very hard to curb the first, second, and tenth amendments.

They are working hard to tighten up the internet, reduce net freedom, and censor political thought.

None of this should be news.

If you use any of these companies then you should just go ahead and donate to the DNC and vote for Fascists.

There are other search engines and, really, Facebook is just very gay and narcissistic in the first place.

“Facebook is just very gay and narcissistic in the first place.”

I apologize for this last line from my last post.

It’s only 90% true for 90% of the people on Facebook.

It’s also rich for data mining. They aren’t your “friends” and can eventually use everything you share against you. For those of you staying on FB, pls tighten up all your settings and be careful what you post. It could come back to haunt you - and those connected to you.

Now that I've completed that task, I need to find a new web portal to log into when I power up the Internet. Yahoo is shrill for Obama so I need a new homepage.

Can anyone suggest one?

If your local paper backed Obama you also need to cancel your newspaper subscription. I cancelled planne recordings of Network news shows on my DVR. I will NEVER go to a movie theater as long as I live. We can’t fight their corruptions but we can hurt their backers... If it’s a liberal company, a liberal state, a liberal business of any kind - boycott them.

I’ve been debating the same thing about deactivating my FB account. I almost did it last night, as a knee-jerk reaction, but thought I’d wait until I calmed down a little (if that’s even possible) I will wait a few more days and at the very least, not log on there for a long time.

I’ve deleted many websites from my bookmarks. Dick Morris, Townhall, Politico, and a few others. All the websites that posted polls saying that Romney would win are gone, except FR.
