Facebook Yields to Pressure: Reactivates Political Critics’ Accounts



Facebook Yields to Pressure: Reactivates Political Critics’ Accounts

Outcry Leads Facebook to Back Away from Overt Censorship

Prominent political critics confirmed to us that their accounts had been suspended or inactivated yesterday in a coordinated purge.

But after we – and others – slammed the censorship, the activists’ accounts have been reinstated.

Peter Dale Scott told us:

The issue seems indeed to have been activism, but of many varieties, including gun advocacy. Above all it seems to have affected many more accounts in England than here. See the Guardian story on my webpage, now restored, also this:

It is possible we [9/11 activists] were marginal victims of a procedure designed to prevent flash mobs (which alas we will never be).

Ejournalism seems to have taken care of the problem. Let’s take heart from this.

Last night while I was sleeping the Magic Elves turned my Facebook account back on. I understand that most if not all of the other accounts were also switched back on. Frankly, I am honored to have been included in the list of leading political critics thus attacked. I feel like I made the varsity team!

Not a word of explanation has been forthcoming from Facebook. This, I think, rules out an external hacker attack.

The lesson to be learned here is that the alternative media has more power to affect change than we ourselves fully comprehend, and it is time to use that power.

Mike Adams of Natural News reports:

Facebook … suspended our account and gave us a final warning that one more violation of their so-called community guidelines would result in our account being permanently deactivated.

They then demanded we send them a color copy of a government issued identification in order to reactivate our account. Our account was removed from suspension just minutes before InfoWars posted its article on this Facebook censorship, and the Facebook page is now functioning at:
www.Facebook.com/NaturalNews

Perhaps Facebook wrongly assumed that we aren’t smart enough to notice.

Support #altnews & keep Dark Politricks alive

Any support to keep this site running would be much appreciated! If you see any adverts that interest you then please visit them as it helps me without you even needing to give me any money. A few clicks is all it takes to help keep the servers running and #altnews alive!

Please remember I have written hundreds of articles for this site and I host numerous amounts of material that has been taken offline by their original hosters which would be unavailable for viewing if it wasn't for this site. Therefore I would kindly ask you to help support me so that the site can continue doing what I think is an important job as well as reporting on stories the mainstream media would rather you didn't know about. I personally think it is important to host material such as removed reports that show that even FOX News once repoted on Israeli spy rings following the 9.11 hijackers before September 11th Or publishing the original Liberal Democrats Freedom Bill which was removed from their site once they enacted some watered down rubbish instead once they got into power.

However if you don't want to use the very obvious and cost free ways (to you) to help the site and keep me writing for it then please consider making a small donation, especially if you have a few quid sitting in your PayPal account doing nothing useful!
