The Catholic Defender: Facebook Should Lose their TAX EXEMPT Status Now
Facebook and Twitter represent the Far Left Agenda going after Christians, Conservatives, and especially the combination of both. If you supported President Trump they treat you like they treated him using the Communist/Marxist Tactics of blocking people they disagree with.
Three years ago, I brought a lot of business to Facebook through all the articles and radio shows that we were producing and placing in groups we belonged to. Through all the Catholic groups I was associated with, we had well over a million population just in those groups. You place a post and everyone in that group had access to the post. During those times I would receive countless "Amens" and many positive remarks about the material presented.
Something happened with Facebook, probably because of the criticism they might of helped President Trump win the 2016 election. Not that they were supportive of Trump, but they let people share their views and the majority did not like Hilary. They made sure the 2020 election was blackened so that if your supported President Trump they went after you.
I still have a black mark from Facebook for a biblical quote I posted:
"It will come to pass in the last days,’ God says, ‘that I will pour out a portion of my spirit upon all flesh. Your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your young men shall see visions, your old men shall dream dreams. Indeed, upon my servants and my handmaids I will pour out a portion of my spirit in those days, and they shall prophesy. And I will work wonders in the heavens above and signs on the earth below:"
The past two years they have gone after me for "spam" or for not "following their community standards", which are false on both accounts. If I place a post on two groups (that I am part of) that is enough for them to block me. I have been blocked for posting on groups that I either founded and manage, or in other groups that I have been invited to manage.
Recently I was blocked after posting one time on a group I founded and manage, "The Rosary Patrol" which I founded in Iraq deployed from October 2006 - January 2008. Since I retired out of the United States Army, we placed the Rosary Patrol on Facebook.
This picture I have two members of the Rosary Patrol at Sadr City Iraq sharing Religious items people were sending us to support our troops.
I belong to two Catholic groups from the Philippines that have nearly 520,000 members in those two groups. Just making two posts in those two groups I would receive literally hundreds of responses, many more who liked the material. However, when Facebook blocks me for not "following their community standards," not only am I blocked for posting on a group, all the responses dry up just as immediate. That is what I am accusing Facebook of doing, they are seeking to silence Christians and conservatives.
On my blog, I went from 25% up in post views to 13% down in a day. That is the impact that Facebook wants to have against Christians and Conservatives. Not only supporting President Trump, but if you follow the Traditional family values, the bibilical teachings, they will go after you as well. They will soon look to take the Bible out of our hands much like they have been doing in Canada.
That brings up another question, who are these "fact checkers" hired by Facebook? Do they come from China? The Far-Left from Silicone Valley? It's hard to see anything American coming from Facebook. They need to lose their Tax Exempt Status as they seek to control what is written as opposed to being a place where people can freely express themselves in the arena of ideas.
The following is what I have been facing on Facebook the past two years:
Here is what Facebook says is from their Community Standards and lets see how they fare in their blocking of me?
"It's against our Community Standards to send spam or engage in harassing behavior. If you received a warning that you were sending spam on Facebook, you may have:"
Well, I am wrong on this initially in that I have never been warned for sending spam.
Sent friend requests to people you don't know in real life. No, the vast majority of my friends asked me for friendship because of our Catholic Faith.
Posted or shared something too quickly or too often in a short amount of time. No, the past year I primarily posted in a couple of groups because I get blocked even for less than that.
Tagged or messaged people who aren't your friends. No, that has never been a problem, I am a member of many groups, but unfortunately, I get blocked for posting even on one.
Sent someone a message or link that they marked as unwelcome. No, I send posts that are greatly received with no issues.
Contacted people for commercial purposes without their consent. If you'd like to use Facebook for your business, you should create a Facebook Page. Nope, I have never sent any posts for any commercial purpose whatsoever.
Facebook has a great big goose egg as none of these affected me. It is all because of Facebook's Socialism and their opposition to Christian Conservatives especially those who support President Trump.
This is what I see when I try to post:
You can’t post in groups
This is because your account, or activity on it, didn't follow our Community Standards. This can happen for a number of reasons, including: • Resharing spam into the group • Sharing the same content at a high rate
See what I mean? I have not "reshared spam" into any group and getting blocked for placing a post in one or two groups is not a "high rate".
Does any of this look familiar to anyone or is it just me. If someone else posts the same article or show that is OK, but it is when I post it that Facebook tracks it and blocks it.
Facebook should lose their Tax Exemption Status Now because they are attacking the freedom of speech and are not a neutral platform.
I Chronicles 7:14 says, "if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land."
