Zuck’s luck may have run out with POTUS: Trump to ‘look into’ Facebook’s blocking of his social media chief

By Jon Dougherty

The Left is fond of calling POTUS Trump and his legions of supporters fascists — who knew there were so many of in the U.S. of A? — but the reality is, the traits they attribute to those of us in the president’s corner are really being practiced by their Marxist heroes.

Take Mark Zuckerberg’s Facebook. Like the other social media giants Twitter, YouTube, and Google, Zuck’s place blocks, bans, censors, or just plain buries any [right-leaning] political opinion and content the speech Nazis he employs don’t agree with.

That’s been happening for more than a year, mind you — we’ve reported on it — but the censorship has never risen to the level of the White House.

At least, not until now. On Tuesday the president took, ironically, to Twitter (he’s the platform’s biggest and best marketer) to warn Zuck and Facebook after the social media behemoth blocked Trump’s social media manager (you can’t make this up).

Dan Scavino took a screenshot of a prompt that popped up when he attempted to post that read, “You’re temporarily blocked from making public comments on Facebook.” It cited “spam” but, of course, the warning did not elaborate.

“Dear Facebook- AMAZING. WHY ARE YOU STOPPING ME from replying to comments followers have left me – on my own Facebook Page!!?? People have the right to know. Why are you silencing me??? Please LMK! Thanks,” Scavino said with a screenshot of the Facebook censorship.

Scavino has worked with Trump for many years. He runs several of the White House’s social media accounts and never had any problems until now.

The incident caught the attention of Scavino’s boss.

I will be looking into this! #StopTheBias” the president wrote in a tweet Tuesday.

It’s not clear what the president can or will do, but increasingly the censorship of the Leftist social media giants is drawing attention from powerful people. House Intelligence Ranking Member Devin Nunes filed a $250 million suit against Twitter on Monday alleging not violations of speech but rather that the platform now takes such an active role in both curating and banning content, rather than merely hosting it, that the company ought to face liability like any other media organization that defames.

Fakebook and Zuckerturd? LOL! Oh hell no and I don’t feel sorry for the dimwitted dullards who volunteer all of their personal information so someone else can profit off of it.
Better catch a clue Fakebook Trump isn’t some milquetoast chamber of commerce RINO RAT and he punches back hard.

I am a no body and they censor me. I cannot tweet, or reply in some places. Here I can reply and receive feedback. Thank you.

The guy was literally blocked by a bot because he was spamming mentions. It is literally just a function to combat spam.

Fortunately, not everything is a spooky conspiracy.

[…] Back in the golden age of comedy, men and women who were icons of the genre made great livings poking fun at things like gender, religion, nationality, ethnicity, sex, race, and — yes — even immigration status. Today, none of those greats would be allowed to practice their craft and use humorous anecdotes about any of those subjects because…taboo. YouTube’s speech Nazis have spoken.
