Facebook Suspends User Over American Flag Image

by Joe Newby, The American Mirror:

On Wednesday morning, Facebook, the social media site increasingly known as the “world’s most dangerous censor,” told yours truly that a picture depicting an eagle and a U.S. flag violates their “community standards,” and further issued a 30-day ban. Worse yet, I never even posted the photo.

Here’s the initial message:

That message was followed up with this:

Earlier this week, the social media giant unpublished the popular “Wake Up, America” page, prompting the page owner to create a new page. It’s also interesting to note that the owner of the page was once banned by Facebook over a photo of a 2012 Donald Trump campaign button the site falsely claimed violated their rules on nudity. The photo only showed Trump’s face.

Let’s be clear — nothing about this image violates the company’s standards, and this action was no mistake. It was done on purpose.

Incidents like this are the reason Adina Kutnicki, an investigative journalist based in Israel, and I wrote “Banned: How Facebook enables militant Islamic jihad.” That book, endorsed by Pamela Geller, is available at WND and

Sadly, until Congress takes action, this type of harassment and viewpoint discrimination on social media sites will continue unabated.

Update 1: The picture in question seems to have been the profile picture of Wake Up America, a backup page set up when Wake Up, America was torn down.

Update 2: It turns out that another conservative blogger who happens to be a contributor to this site, also got the message and received a ban.

Update 3: All attempts to reach Facebook have so far been unsuccessful.

    Yep… as if we needed ANY more excuses to dump this pathetic company. I never have used FB, Twitter, or any of the others. Most are run by lefties who act like spoiled brats who are incapable of accepting REAL debate. If they do not get their way, they have a hissy fit. This is but one more example of many.

    I don’t mean to cast aspersions here.

    You acknowledge the real value of facebook but complain they don’t let you on . . . .

    Go have a long look at yourself in the mirror. Anyone else reading this who complains about facebook but has an account,do the same.

    I was in a car with two others on Tuesday 22nd, we all commented on how unusual it is meet someone else not on facebook but to be in the company of 2 others who have the same view of social media.
