We’ve seen a lot of posts about how Facebook seems to be going after Conservatives and leaning left these days. I myself have seen and experienced this numerous times on my own Facebook Page. Due to my Conservative views and being a Black Female Conservative working within the Republican Party, I have become a target of Black Lives Matter, the Nation of Islam, and White Liberals who are sympathizers to the “Pro Black Cause” on Facebook, Twitter, and even YouTube. I have been called every name under the sun other than my own, and even received direct threats as well. For example Rachael Rivera (who goes by many aliases) went on a tirade on YouTube about me for months on her YouTube Channel:
I have even done Radio Shows that discuss this very issue! As you can see from the screenshots shared in this interview on Cowboy Logic Radio, the attacks can be very brutal.
Most recently I posted a status on my Personal Page that was dealing with the removal of Confederate Monuments. I posed the question of if we are going to remove these pieces of history, why not remove all monuments. It seems Facebook does not like people posting Pro Confederate Flag and Monument topics as many have had trouble sharing posts and others have been blocked from using their pages as well. I in no way violated the Facebook Policies or Community Standards in my posting or in my feeds. Other people, that were not friends on my page however did.
Now one would think that the correct course of action would be to report the comments, block the people making the comments, and deleting the comments would be the correct course of action right?!? Wrong! As you can see, I report people who make racial slurs or threats regularly on my pages. I have submitted over 100.
Each time I get the same response back from Facebook…….
After I reported the latest Racial Slurs on my page, I received this message in my Support Inbox.
Upon returning to my page, I found myself blocked from posting and locked away in Facebook Jail for 30 days. There is not much you can do when this happens. You can try writing Facebook from the Support Inbox and email them, but they usually send you a standard message back.
Now I have reported others for this behavior as well! I do not tolerate racist comments, bullying, or harassment on my page from any Race or Color and I let that be known! Their comments were pulled from my page immediately by Facebook without my own page being locked down. This person was a White Radical Racist Conservative not even going by his real name, which is supposedly against Facebook Community Standards and Policies as well.
Truth be told once Facebook throws you in Facebook Jail, there really isn’t a recourse. I have been locked up so many times that I’m surprised they haven’t yanked my page down permanently yet! They do not take any of these things seriously as they state, and they do not take the time to look to see if they are taking the correct action no matter how you may protest to their Support Team. Most of the time you get an automated message. They state on their site that once you are blocked, it can not be reversed for any reason. Even if it’s their own lack of doing the jobs that they are hired to do by properly enforcing their own Community Policies and Standards.
In fact, it’s quite comical how they tell you to slow down or stop your behavior when you aren’t the one doing anything wrong. How was I supposed to stop people who are total strangers to me from making Racial Slurs on my page?!? I did what I was supposed to do when I reported them, blocked them, and deleted their comments!
People often ask me why I don’t make my page friends only. I am at my limit for friends on my page and I keep my page public so others may join in on the conversations, get information they may not see anywhere else, and also gain insight to a viewpoint that they may not know about or thought of before. If I were to lock down my page, I would only be preaching to the choir.
The one thing I have personally noticed is, that Facebook doesn’t really seem to care what you say or do if you are on the Left side of the fence. If you are a Liberal, especially a racist one, you are able to say what ever you want and get away with it. Not so much if you are a Conservative going against the grain such as I am. They may give Conservatives a hard time, but try being a Black Female Conservative on Facebook! It seems pretty clear where Facebook’s allegiance lies when it come to this Race War that is going on in this country. Hell, their fanning the flames with a Flame Thrower!
In closing, if you find yourself in Facebook Jail…..
Consider yourself in good company! Wear it like a Badge of Honor and keep it up! You must be doing something right!
