Over the past few years, more than 255,000 conservative patriots have joined my Facebook community. It’s a robust group of people who care passionately about this nation and the Constitution.
We are the gun-toting, Bible-clinging Deplorables of social networking.
However, because of Facebook algorithms, barely 5,000 of our followers are actually able to see our content on their newsfeeds.
Facebook recently announced they plan to implement even stricter protocols that will all but erase our conservative news and opinion from the pages of Facebook.
To be clear, Facebook has every right to determine how they want to run their company and what kind of content they will promote and support. So our team has been working on ways to ensure that you get our content.
We are going to provide you with a weekly newsletter that includes links to every one of my stories and commentaries. This newsletter is FREE and we promise not to share your email address or spam you. If you register for our newsletter, you will receive one newsletter a week — that’s it.
Facebook has been a very unfriendly territory for Conservatives and especially Conservative Christians. I have documented countless instances of censorship, from Chicks-on-the-Right to Catholic organizations.
And you might I was named the Bad Boy of Facebook back in 2013.
I earned that badge of honor when Facebook blocked my page and removed a message I had posted that invoked Paula Deen, the National Rifle Association and Jesus Christ. Here’s what I wrote:
“I’m about as politically incorrect as you can get. I’m wearing an NRA ball cap, eating a Chick-fil-A sandwich, reading a Paula Deen cookbook and sipping a 20-ounce sweet tea while sitting in my Cracker Barrel rocking chair with the Gaither Vocal Band singing ‘Jesus Saves’ on the stereo and a Gideon’s Bible in my pocket. Yes sir, I’m politically incorrect and happy as a June bug.”
The folks over at Facebook took great offense to that message.
“We removed this from Facebook because it violates our Community Standards,” Facebook wrote me. “So you’re temporarily blocked from using this feature.”
I wasn’t even allowed to post our daily Bible verse — a popular feature called “Morning Glory — Start Your Day Inspired.”
That being said, Facebook has been helpful in spreading our content across the country. Sadly, they are simply not interested in freedom of expression or freedom of assembly or freedom of speech.
That is their right as a business. And it is our right to find another way to share our message with our fellow Americans.
