Land of the free and home of the brave? I’ll try to stay brave. I am not free to speak what I feel; at least not on Facebook.
I used to, yes, used to, co-administrate many ‘Pages’ and ‘groups’ on Facebook.
I was one of the administrators. But that’s not all. They didn’t list the all of the 800 ‘Pages’ that were unpublished. I know because I was an administrator on many.
One ‘Page’, in particular, was called “The Trump Times” and was associated with this site: The Trump Times https://www.thetrumptimes.com/
I am a writer and the chief editor for this site. We shared our articles to Facebook, Twitter and other social media. It’s difficult to remember all the ‘groups’ that I administrated in some way. I do graphic design and some groups needed a proper ‘Header’ and so I helped and made them. Some of the groups left me in as an administrator.
Okay, it finally happened. My FB account was disabled.

At this time I cannot access Facebook because access is denied to me. My account was disabled. I did send a scanned picture of my driver’s license to Facebook to prove I’m a real person but I didn’t get a reply from them.
This leaves me not knowing exactly how many ‘Pages’ or ‘groups’ that I held an administrative role in were pulled down.
Don’t tell me to make another profile because I’ve tried that and Facebook seems to know who I am.
Some say to me that this is a badge of honor. I say NO! It is an infringement of my first amendment rights! If my political views were with the ‘Left’, I’d have no problems. My political affiliation is with President Trump and his administration and that makes me a threat to Facebook.
One sad part is that a ‘Page’ and a ‘group’ linked to the page was non-political. Membership is small because it is a community that I live in that is related to the ‘Page’ and ‘group’.
I went to another computer on a different IP Address with another person’s identity, to see if they are still there. The community ‘Page’ and ‘group’ are there but all my posts have been removed. It’s kind of like I was erased from existence.
Does Facebook think, that with a group of other people, I got Trump elected? That’s something to think about. Are the creative juices that run through my blood that powerful?
I’ll make myself a little badge of honor to wear. I will not stop doing what I do best. I write, edit, make memes (graphics) and I promote people and products.
I apparently do things so well that I am a big threat to Mark Zuckenberg and his buddies at Facebook.I hope the Senate sees what is going on in this country and stops this belligerent biased crap. I must be out of my mind, right? Look at what happened to Justice Brett Kavanaugh. Do I expect anything to be fair anymore? NO! People, we need the House and Senate; VOTE!
I need Mike Kelly in the House. Hello Mike, can you help me? Senator Pat Toomey are you out there? Help!!
I have a middle finger Zuck! If I ever run into you, I’ll show it to you.
