We’ve previously documented that the largest social media websites censor government criticism.


For example, Facebook pays low-wage foreign workers to delete certain content based upon a censorship list.


For example, Facebook deletes accounts created by any Palestinian resistance groups. Today, Facebook deactivated the Facebook accounts of some of the leading American political critics.


For example,

As I illustrated at the top of the page, 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.

Infowars - one of the world’s most popular alternative media sites - confirms that accounts for the following political commentators have been shut down:

  • Kurt Nimmo, writer for and formerly Counterpunch

  • Aaron Dykes of Infowars

  • Jason from Infowars

  • Infowar Artist

Indeed, Facebook told an Infowars reporter last year not to post anything political:

Be careful making about making political statements on facebook… facebook is about building relationships not a platform for your political viewpoint. Don’t antagonize your base. Be careful and congnizat (sic) of what you are preaching.

And Infowars also confirms that the Facebook account for Natural News - one of the most popular alternative health sites - has been shut down.


Reports are that the Facebook accounts of a number of other political critics were suspended or deactivated today as well, including:

  • Amber Lyon, 3-time Emmy Award winning CNN reporter

  • Anthony J. Hilder, popular radio host

  • Michael Murphy

  • Mike Skuthan

  • Packy Savvenas

  • Robert M. Bowman, former director of the “Star Wars” defense program under President Ronald Reagan

  • Sean Wright and Katherine Albrect

  • Wacboston

  • Weare Change, popular citizen journalism group

  • William Lewis

  • William Rodriguez, 9/11 hero
