Facebook Upholds Trump’s Facebook Suspension

Videos by OutKick

Facebook’s independent Oversight Board ruled Wednesday in favor of upholding former President Donald Trump’s suspension.

The board, which is supposedly impartial, says Trump “severely violated” Facebook rules.

Severely, huh?

“The Board found that, in maintaining an unfounded narrative of electoral fraud and persistent calls to action, Mr. Trump created an environment where a serious risk of violence was possible,” the board wrote in a statement.

“Within six months of this decision, Facebook must reexamine the arbitrary penalty it imposed on January 7 and decide the appropriate penalty,” it said.

Facebook has 30 days to publicly respond to the Oversight Board’s decision and policy recommendations.

OutKick reported Tuesday that Facebook had been reaching out to advertisers in anticipation of Trump’s potential reinstatement.

As pathetic as today’s decision is, Trump is moving on.

Earlier this week, Trump launched a new platform to communicate directly with his followers: “From the Desk of Donald J. Trump,” at www.DonaldJTrump.com/desk. While followers can share Trump’s posts on Twitter and Facebook — for now — it does not allow users to engage with Trump’s posts.

In addition, Trump’s senior advisor Jason Miller said Trump plans to move forward with a new social media platform.

“President Trump’s website is a great resource to find his latest statements and highlights from his first term in office, but this is not a new social media platform,” Jason Miller said. “We’ll have additional information coming on that front in the very near future.”

Big Tech, y’all. It’s the story right now.

  1. You gotta laugh. The story reads; an authoritarian organization led by a ghoulish dictator says, “Free speech is free speech when I say it is free” The ghoulish dictator exercises his power. The ghoul then gets a group of other ghoulish authoritarian parasites together and they agree. “Free speech” will be allowed when and only when we dictate it. I know these ghouls take themselves very seriously. I know they are very scary ghouls. That being said, can any sane, honest human being take these grandiose monsters as seriously as they take themselves? A reckoning is coming. The ghouls have the upper hand for now. We shall see how this plays out, but I think the American people think freedom of speech is an American value that needs to be defended. Until then, the ghoul club all agree with themselves. This edict is a circle jerk of hate, and oppression. Free speech is worth fighting for!

  2. I think this was a preemptive defensive move by Fakebook. If they had reinstated Trumps account, my bet is he was going to tell the F off, he wasn’t going back! That would have been a net negative for them, more bad pub. So by not reinstating his account, no chance for him to rub it in their faces.

    Either way, who cares.

  3. Who gives a shit about Fakebook anymore? I used to advertise on it and I can tell you however they want spin it, people are in a mass exodus. Ad results are what matters and FB is the worst ROI you can make.

  4. i haven’t used my social media since Jan 2020 or so. i just tried logging in to fakebook and instagram, but i cannot. i want to close them out and delete, but the steps required to get back in is so combersome, that i may give up.

    what this means is that these sights can count my account as a user. they use that info for advertisers and its fraud. i am not a user and they have my data that i created and i cannot get in to delete it.

    this is how zuckerberg got rich. he stole the entire concept from others, then screwed people as he expanded and then went public to create permanent wealth. Zuckerberg and Bloomberg together are worth $200 billion. their public reach in the world is 2.5 billion people.

    think about these figures. and these are democrats.

  5. Social media is so pathetIc, who gives a crap about this kangaroo court garbage. These people are all living in a fantasy world of self importance. Now that thinking people know their game, these leftist bot havens have lost all influence. Zuck and Dorsey will go down as the biggest jackasses in history.
