Skip to comments.I was banned from LinkedIn for telling the truth: Who is giving these orders?

On Thursday, I got yet another notice from the LinkedIn's "Trust & Safety Team": "Your post goes against our policy on misinformation. It has been removed and only you can access it." The post that LinkedIn found objectionable was from my website, the Geller Report, and was entitled "CORPORATE STATE: Domestic Terror Group Black Lives Matter Received Nearly $83 Billion from Corporations."
My post consisted of an excerpt from a Breitbart article plus three lines of my own commentary. LinkedIn didn't dispute the accuracy of anything in my post or its source; it just doesn't want it said. This comes after LinkedIn had banned me from its platform for nearly three years for posting accurate and well sourced information that goes against the leftist narrative.
Who is giving these orders? Now that we have the Twitter Files, we need the LinkedIn Files.
I was banned back in August 2020 without warning or notice. I just went to my LinkedIn account one day and found that I had been locked out of it. I appealed to the corporate behemoth and received an email on August 24, 2020, saying: "Your account has been restricted due to a violation to the LinkedIn's User Agreement relating to the following false content." The LinkedIn drone who wrote the email offered four examples of my unacceptable content. These were all Geller Report posts:
All of these were simply excerpts from cited news stories with my own commentary added. My commentary didn't add any additional information; it just commented on the information provided in the source articles,

Thank you very much and God bless you.
I think that would be Microsuck
How much got laundered to politicians?
“Who is giving these orders?”
Same bunch that Musk outed on Twitter, and the same bunch pushing for World War 3 on various conservative forums.
LinkedIn should be free of politics. That’s not what it’s for.
The guy who owns LinkedIn is a big time leftist.
Go to Lucianne.com and say anything someone there does not like and you are blocked.
Personally, I wish we could return to the days were LinkedIn was truly a professional job related website and not all of the garbage politics that is now on it.
$83 bil is a bit too high. $83 million is more believable.
RE: $83 bil is a bit too high. $83 million is more believable.
But that number has NEVER BEEN CORRECTED by the source even though it’s been published, repeated and re-sent several times ( including in FR ).
I agree, they can get rid of their LinkedIn news too. I got banned for several days for calling a gen z’er a woketard.
If you are going to report something political to a liberal source, then you should not use conservative sites as he Geller Report or Breitbart, but go to the actual sources they take their stories from. In fact, since so many conservative sites sometimes skew or do not check out stories before running screaming headlines to being readers to see my ads, then then checking out stories is wise in any case, not that I always do.
It's been that way there for years and years and years.
It's what brought many of us to FR back in '98-'00.
https://voz.us/companies-that-gave-more-than-83-billion-to-the-blm-movement-revealed/?lang=en reports: The Claremont Institute's Center for the American Way of Life unveiled a new database that tracks and reveals the amount of funding the Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement has received from corporations or independent donors from 2020 to the present: - https://dc.claremont.org/blm-funding-database/
But the NYT reports that based upon a form covering the fiscal year that ended June 30, 2021:
After Raising $90 Million in 2020, Black Lives Matter Has $42 Million in Assets
LinkedIn hasn’t touched my post of this WND article:
No “truth and safety” nastygrams, either.
It's been a very busy day.
“LinkedIn should be free of politics. That’s not what it’s for.”
Agreed. LinkedIn is for business networking and can be helpful for people listing resumes and trying to get a new job, etc.
It is for business networking and her business is political commentary. My brother-in-law posts articles related to his database development company. I’m not sure how this is much different.
Yes, I keep wanting to comment on the whiners. Have a couple times. Recently a young woman was whining that she had been laid off 3 times in the past four years. I couldn’t resist, sharing with her that she was fired three times and it is only polite to say laid off when talking to grandma or her mom. Suggested she reflect on why, stop whining publicly, and go look for a new job. I got trounced by lots of folks saying I was not being fair to her. I deleted my comment after a day or so.
