Skip to comments.Trump supporters are flocking to alternative social networks to plan election-office protests after Facebook banned groups that attracted hundreds of thousands of members

Pro-Trump activists have found a new online home to protest vote-counting less than 24 hours after Facebook shut down an organizing group of more than 365,000 members for breaking its policies around inciting violence.
Thousands have flocked to such groups on MeWe, a social platform emphasizing users' rights and privacy that anti-lockdown protesters turned to earlier this year after they were kicked off Facebook. Nearly a dozen "Stop the Steal" groups have popped up since Thursday on MeWe, Business Insider has found, filled with posts claiming voter fraud and organizing state-by-state protests of election results.
"Stop the Steal," a conspiracy theory that accuses Democrats of stealing the presidential election for Joe Biden, is just one of the rallying cries some Republicans have latched onto to dispute the results of Tuesday's presidential election. These baseless allegations which echo similar ones made by President Donald Trump on Twitter have encouraged some to cast doubt on the legitimacy of the election outcome as votes continue to be counted across the US, including in some key battleground states.
The real-life results of these claims and have already been seen across the country. Protesters, some armed, have gathered at vote-counting centers in Arizona, Michigan, Georgia, and Nevada to demand those inside stop tallying up votes from mail-in and absentee ballots.
The vote counts from Arizona, Georgia, and Nevada, as well as from Pennsylvania, are increasingly signaling a victory for Biden. Insider and our partners at Decision Desk HQ called the race for Biden earlier Friday.

more on that subject of “stop the steal”
After four years of Russia, Russia, Russia, suddenly the press is now against conspiracy theories.
Actually I wish to thank Russia, voting for Trump is the best thing I ever did for this country.
Why were they still at Facebook to start with?
I’ve never had an account on CuckBook anyhow. Cuckerberg can pound sand.
And isn’t it amazing that the same people who have been claiming Russian interference in the 2016 election, interfered with the 2020 election.
Do we know if there may be a possibility to re-vote....in person, on one date, in. person....as always?
When an entire country (the Philippines) uses a social media platform, you have to use it. My relatives flatly refuse to use other contact methods including WhatsApp, Viber and Skype as no one else really uses them.
100% chance that they wont jump on MeWe or others.
Anyway they allowed the Russia bullshit coverage to stand. Never any fact checks, never even tagged it, but Patriot groups, like this one are being removed at a rapid rate and yet, BLM groups are allowed to organize terrorist activities. I reported one group, 'Shut down D.C.' because they actually had video of their terrorizing people and neighborhoods in the dead of night and were out there actually stating (and organizing) large groups to commit violence against whitey and, after the election, the WH itself. The response? 'This doesn't violate "our" community standards' then they suggest that 'I' can block the offending group. Yeah, that'll take care of that.
Depending on how the results play out, I'm considering shutting it down completely.
Business Insider has been a leftist publication for years. Not to be trusted. Believed to be set up to challenge or smear the Wall Street Journal and IDB or IBD conservative business news publication.
Regarding your second link in this post
it goes to a post on FR
with numerous links.
Which one is the story about “sensing a Biden victory, Democrats in Washington DC and Hollywood begin calling for all Trump supporters to be arrested and burned to death”
That is the title of the second link here:
never heard of “MeWe” given Business insider reputation. I would say they’re tying to get more people over to their leftists friends new site.
Looked up “MeWe” it’s a googleplay program. Why on earth would person that is being kicked off leftist sites go too google? My brain hurts thinking about the logic
I though it was Sucaturd.
I’ve never heard of MeWe either. I thought it was Parler. What are people using instead of FB and Twitter?
Found the story with that title.
