Posted on 09/02/2020 11:26:04 AM PDT by Zenyatta
Facebook is censoring links to crowdfunding campaigns for the legal defense of Kyle Rittenhouse, the 17-year-old charged with fatally shooting two protesters in Kenosha, Wisconsin.
In detail: Facebook users attempting to share a link to the fundraiser for Rittenhouse launched at the crowdfunding platform GiveSendGo are being blocked for posting it. When they attempt to share the link, a pop-up informed them that it violates the platforms community standards. The pop-up doesnt offer any further explanations.
Other GiveSendGo fundraisers can be posted to the social media platform.

Their site, their rules.
Don’t use it!.......
And didn’t gf’s gofundme go over $9 million? And the guy in Kenosha was over $2 mil the last I saw.
This fund was established by the law firm defending Kyle. Other defense funds from GoFundMe and now Facebook are being shut down. BTW, there is a Fightback Foundation in Colorado for children but it is not associated with Kyle's defense.
Exactly! Forgo the temptation to post on any platform that sensors ANYONE. These people are truly insane, inane, and a force against America.
CONTROL yourself. Find alternatives. Habits are difficult to break? Ask for help with intervention from family and friends.
REMEMBER: they need you much more than you need them!
Facebook had resisted going 100% to the dark side for some time but apparently now is going all-in, with great gusto. If this continues we need to deal them devastating financial blows by passing AND ENFORCING strict PRIVACY LAWS to prevent them from using ANY personal data (e.g., user interests, web history, content of comments, personal attributes) in directing their advertising.
The same stringent privacy laws/rules should apply to Google, Android, Twitter and others.
It's not just the "censorship", it's the security exposure. That alone should scare you off Facebook.
facebook is actively supporting the left. It is not social media. It is a massive website that suppresses WrongThink and promotes RightThink.
“Their site, their rules.”
That would be the shareholders. Facebook is publicly traded.
Executive board members who use the funds of a publicly traded company to advance their own personal political agendas are committing multiple crimes.
Tired of this nonsense being posted over and over on this forum. Large, multi-national corporations are not the equivalent of mom-and-pop businesses or personal property.
You and those who spread these falsehoods are playing into their hands.
Free speech belongs to the people. It is being robbed by people who control the monopolies (government-sanctioned, by the way) and duopolies (giving the false impression of choice).
If you are going to make strong, opinionated statements about the legality and justice of such actions, be sure to educate yourself first, because what you are posting reflects extreme and dangerous ignorance. I suggest starting with a few hours of reading about how the markets work and what a publicly traded company is.

Facebook is evil.
Get your loved ones off it, if you can.
Do any of you know anything about these guys?
Nothing from me.
