It Was All a Media Stunt: Far-Left Facebook Upholds Ban on President Trump Based on a Lie

After censoring his supporters for years, Far-left Facebook banned Trump on January 7, 2021, based on a lie.

Mark Zuckerberg and Facebook banned President Trump based on the lie that his inflammatory rhetoric encouraged an insurrection on January 6.

This was later proven false.

Facebook doesn’t care. It’s all about power and control. They know they have natural allies in Democrats.

On Wednesday, after much media fanfare, Facebook upheld its ban on President Trump.

It was all a media stunt. They never were going to let him back on their platform especially since he may run again in 2024.

Stripes reported:

Former President Donald Trump won’t return to Facebook — for now.

The social network’s quasi-independent Oversight Board voted to uphold his ban from the platform after his account was suspended four months ago for inciting violence that led to the deadly Jan. 6 Capitol riot.

While uploading the suspension, the board faulted Facebook for the way it made the decision.

“It was not appropriate for Facebook to impose the indeterminate and standardless penalty of indefinite suspension,” it said.

The board says Facebook has six months to reexamine the “arbitrary penalty” it imposed on Jan. 7 and decide on another penalty that reflects the “gravity of the violation and the prospect of future harm.”

The board says the new penalty must be “clear, necessary and proportionate” and consistent with Facebook’s rules for severe violations.
