Facebook Blacklists Donald Trump ‘Indefinitely’

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg stated in a recent post that following the events on Capitol Hill yesterday and President Trump’s comments on social media about the situation, Facebook would be banning the President’s access to the platform “indefinitely.”

Breitbart News reported yesterday that President Trump had been blocked from Facebook for 24 hours, now it appears that ban has been extended.

Zuckerberg stated in a Facebook post:

The shocking events of the last 24 hours clearly demonstrate that President Donald Trump intends to use his remaining time in office to undermine the peaceful and lawful transition of power to his elected successor, Joe Biden.

His decision to use his platform to condone rather than condemn the actions of his supporters at the Capitol building has rightly disturbed people in the US and around the world. We removed these statements yesterday because we judged that their effect — and likely their intent — would be to provoke further violence.

Following the certification of the election results by Congress, the priority for the whole country must now be to ensure that the remaining 13 days and the days after inauguration pass peacefully and in accordance with established democratic norms.

Over the last several years, we have allowed President Trump to use our platform consistent with our own rules, at times removing content or labeling his posts when they violate our policies. We did this because we believe that the public has a right to the broadest possible access to political speech, even controversial speech. But the current context is now fundamentally different, involving use of our platform to incite violent insurrection against a democratically elected government.

We believe the risks of allowing the President to continue to use our service during this period are simply too great. Therefore, we are extending the block we have placed on his Facebook and Instagram accounts indefinitely and for at least the next two weeks until the peaceful transition of power is complete.

Twitter is set to restore access to President Trump’s account soon following a 12-hour suspension. The site issued its harshest punishment yet to President Trump following his comments about yesterday’s protests during which protestors breached the United States Capitol. …

  1. And while Facebook bans Trump, Antifa and BLM continue to use it for making threats against police officers and innocent bystanders who refused to bend the knee to their cause. Even radical Dems use it to threaten other lives yet they are not blocked. This is the last straw for me. I’m deleting Facebook permanently and will encourage others to do the same. I hope Facebook s brought down and removed from existence. They were a great platform when they first started but now they are no different than the MSM. One day, they will be brought down. I will laugh when they declare Ch 7 bankruptcy and liquidation.

  2. If you are on these leftist social media sites, such as Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, and you are a moderate or conservative, you are a fool. All you are doing is enriching these far left companies with more advertising dollars. GET OFF! Go over to true free speech sites such as Parler.

  3. Facebook could be brought down very easily if all those bitching about it quit using it! Why do you use it anyway? Is that the only voice you have? It’s a sight for “one-ups-manship”; get your attaboys on Facebook?

    IT’S TIME FOR USERS TO LEAVE FACEBOOK AND KILL THE SNAKE!

  4. Criminal? Big Tech is a treason conglomerate bent on ruling the working class.
    It is your choice. Throw the criminals out or continue to live with them.
    Facebook is the Devil and their team are his lieutenants.

  5. These are the same folks that are over in China helping with their draconian electronic monitoring systems.
    Social media took away our freedom of speech and the dims in Washington are rewarding them with a get out of jail free card in perpetuity. They lost the election for Trump by hiding the Hunter Biden laptop pay to play revelation.
    Combine the corrupted…democrats in total control, liberal education, fake news media, Hollywood, Soros style billionaires, major sport franchises and the Washington swamp. We are in for a really bad four years.
    I pray we wake up in time. It is time for good men to do SOMETHING!

  6. Ban them. (that means don’t use them)

    If you must use this type use Parler…….. There is more than enough money and tech support for them to create their own servers.
