Facebook Responds to Kevin Sorbo’s Censorship Slaims

Tech titan Facebook responded to conservative actor Kevin Sorbo’s allegations that the social platform took down his page without explanation or warning. 

The former Hercules actor took to Twitter to announce that Facebook had deleted his official account, which had more than 500,000 followers. On Monday, he and his wife, Sam, went on Fox New @ Night and accused the social network of removing his official account without notice, reasoning that he was another victim of extreme cancel culture.   

“I’ve been told absolutely nothing, I mean they’ve been shadow banning me for the last year telling me that they’re purposely only letting a select few people see the posts that I make,” he commented. “And the posts that I make, I do a lot of humor and obviously Facebook doesn’t like humor because they don’t have anything to laugh about.”

Two days later, Sorbo tweeted that he had created a new account that had steered clear of political subjects, but the page was deleted. “FACEBOOK DID IT AGAIN!” he wrote. “Censorship at its finest, spread the word!”

 

The usually silent tech giant released a defensive statement in response to the publicity. “We removed Kevin Sorbo’s Page for repeatedly sharing debunked claims about the coronavirus or vaccines,” said a spokesperson

They also claimed Sorbo wasn’t being truthful about the amount of warnings he had received, citing two notifications they had previously sent that had allotted him 48 hours to remove the offending posts. Once the period had passed without the misinformation post being taken down, they removed his page.  

Sorbo says that his posts were not incendiary, but Facebook lacks a “tolerance level” due to the company’s own power. 

“That’s total cancellation. I mean look, I don’t post things that want to cause riots or cause fighting and anger and hate. I post things like, ‘let’s have a discussion about this guys.’” He commented. “Because we’re getting so many different things whether it’s wearing masks or not wearing masks, whether there’s voter fraud or not voter fraud. I say, why can’t we discuss those issues?”  

“But for whatever reason… their tolerance level is a one-way street with them.” Sorbo concluded.  “It’s difficult to fight that battle when they have all the power and they know they have all the power.”

It appears that our 2021 “Civil War” amounts to libs using Facebook, Twitter, etc. and conservatives using Parler, Rumble, etc. I bet these newer platforms will soar! Then if Trump forms his own platform…watch out! 🙂

We need a boycott of both Facebook and Twitter. Go to Parler.

It’s just the Government/industry collaborative “Ministry of Truth”. Orwell missed the collaborative p[art but did get the rest right.

Everybody go to Parker. Just we did to the Fake News outlets. Now they are moaning and groaning. Just like NBA, and all pro sports. Who needs them. Censorship is a two way street. Nuff’said.

I think it is time for all Conservatives to show FB and TWIT what we are capable of and all of us do a coordinated deletion of our Pages and Profiles! See what happens when they have 70 MILLION less customers to push around. Plus then they can get what they want, total obedience to their ideology!

I recommend that all those who thinks being censored by a group or corporation that has take it upon themselves to be the arbiter of everybody speech needs to cancel your account and see how long they exist without the advertising that has made them billionaires that and they probably has skirted paying their fair share of the tax burden most of us have to live with. I’m sure this post will be taken down as most of my post has been for telling the truth just not their so called truth.

This is just like the communist country’s in the world. They will do anything to stop the people from hearing the truth. They talk about saying what is true but only if it is from the left propaganda lie’s and hate the preach is ok, but anything that is said that is true they will cancel you out.
