Two Years Ago Today: Trump Campaign Manager Parscale Warned Facebook on Censorship — Since Then Facebook Has Wiped Out Conservative Content

On March 7, 2018, Trump 2020 Campaign Manager Brad Parscale warned Facebook to keep the playing field level.

Parscale warned Facebook that “We are watching you.”

Sadly, since that tweet two years ago, the Trump administration and Republicans have done nothing as Facebook continues to eliminate conservative content and publishers.

Facebook has been shutting down traffic to conservative websites since the 2016 election.

Conservatives dominated social media in 2016 when they were able to get the truth out – uncensored.  Facebook ended that in 2017 and 2018.

The Gateway Pundit spoke with two of the top conservative publishers in America last year.

Here at The Gateway Pundit our Facebook traffic has been effectively eliminated after we were ranked as the 4th most influential conservative publisher in the 2016 election.  We were supportive of President Trump so Facebook was forced to act.

The fact that Facebook is targeting conservative publishers should not be a surprise to Gateway Pundit readers.

We have been reporting on this for several months years now.

This influence map below by Columbia Journalism Review shows the top Facebook influencers during the 2016 election.

And here is that same map showing the conservative publishers who have been targeted by Facebook since 2017.

Facebook has eliminated content from a vast majority of top conservative publishers since 2017.

In February 2019 James O”Keefe and Project Veritas published proof from a whistle-blower that Facebook plotted and planned to remove conservative content from their platform.

Facebook continues to target conservative publishers and conservative news.

How does this happen in America?

We have lost our freedom of speech — the tech giants took it from us… And Republicans have done NOTHING!

In May 2019 President Donald Trump retweeted a article on Facebook censoring conservatives.

But sadly Brad Parscale, the Trump campaign and Republican leaders have done nothing as Facebook and the tech giants continue to crack down on conservative voices.

We are losing our freedom of speech in America – and conservatives are not even putting up a fight.
