Days after Aaron "Jay" Danielson, a member of the Patriot Prayer group, was killed by a self-proclaimed Antifa terrorist, Facebook began removing pages associated with the organization. Facebook went a step further and also removed Jay's Facebook page. Facebook's spokesman described the action as part of its efforts to remove violent social militias from its platform. Instead of removing the pages belonging to Antifa, the group responsible for the violence and murder, the social media company resorted to censoring the victims.
"Antifa groups murdered my friend while he was walking home, and instead of the multibillion-dollar company banning Portland Antifa pages, they ban Patriot Prayer and myself," Joey Gibson, the Patriot Prayer leader said.
Earlier, Facebook also started removing content related to Kyle Rittenhouse, the 17-year old who shot three violent protesters who violently attacked him at a protest in Kenosha. This is despite video evidence showing protesters chasing Kyle and shooting in the air right behind him. Others attacked him while he was on the ground and tried to take his firearm. However, Facebook doesn't care whether you defend yourself or got killed by leftist mobs - you are guilty of violence if you don't support the radical leftist agenda.
While the company claims to have also removed "some" pages belonging to Antifa, it's actions are anything but discriminatory towards conservative or Second Amendment groups. Evidently, the company is doing its best to appease the hard left to protect its billions after leftist companies threatened to stop advertising on the platform.
The network also said it would block organizations “that have demonstrated significant risks to public safety but do not meet the rigorous criteria to be designated as a dangerous organization and banned from having any presence on our platform.”
These actions prove that the social media network has become too powerful to avoid any responsibility for its platform use or its actions, something the regulators should address.
Meanwhile, Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick is pushing universal background checks in our state, and if left unchecked, it will not be long until we see bills like this getting traction in Austin. Texas is embarrassingly ranked 29th for gun rights, and with the help of the political elites in Austin, we will surely rank among New York, California, and Illinois if left to their own devices. Please join our fight today, and help us restore Texas' place as the standard for the U.S.
