TRUTH IS THE NEW HATE SPEECH: Facebook Blocks Gateway Pundit Article on El Paso Shooter’s Progressive Language

Mass shooter Patrick Crusius murdered 20 people Saturday at a Walmart in El Paso, Texas.

Crusius published a manifesto before his shooting spree.

On Saturday The Gateway Pundit contributor Byron McKeeby pointed out that the shooter was a committed progressive.

It is clear from his words that he is a PROGRESSIVE white nationalist – what was once defined as a “Nazi.”

This is not to say he’s a Democrat or a Republican, but he is without question a progressive.

All you have to do is read his manifesto to see the obvious tell-tale signs.

Under his section titled “Economic Reasons” for the attack, the shooter states:

In the near future, America will have to initiate a basic universal income to prevent widespread poverty and civil unrest as people lose their jobs (to automation). Joblessness is in itself a source of civil unrest. The less dependents on a government welfare system, the lower the unemployment rate, the better. Achieving ambitious social projects like universal healthcare and UBI would become far more likely to succeed if tens of millions of defendants are removed.”

Now THAT is some Nazi level stuff right there. Kill the undesirables so we can have our glorious government programs!

His was an act of environmental terrorism as well:

“The decimation of our environment is creating a massive burden for future generations. Corporations are heading the destruction of our environment by shamelessly overharvesting resources.”

Not exactly sounding like a Republican.

Our post pointing out a different twist to the liberal media spin went viral online.

But the leftists running Facebook would not allow this story to be posted.

TRUTH is the new hate speech.

Here are a few of the comments we received from readers this weekend.





Still more censorship:

Still more on Facebook censorship:


And more comments from readers…


The liberal gods at Facebook will not allow truth on their platform.

Of course, this has been happening to The Gateway Pundit consistently following the 2016 election.

In 2016 The Gateway Pundit was ranked the 4th most influential conservative platform during the 2016 election.

So the tech gods moved in and will no longer allow our voice on their platforms.

We continue to grow anyway.
