Facebook Banished Me for Truth-Telling

Facebook Banished Me for Truth-Telling

by Stephen Lendman

America’s deep state declared war on truth-telling, wanting views opposing its own censored or banished altogether.

Perhaps criminalizing writers like myself and others comes next. Google and Facebook are involved, perhaps other social media operations, conspiring with dark forces in Washington in flagrant violation of First Amendment rights.

Facebook informed me by email that I’m banished unless willing to “erase” articles I posted. I’m being asked to renounce truth-telling to gain access to my page or any others on its site - what I’ll never do, of course, not for Facebook or anyone else.

During WW II’s Battle of the Bulge, when Germans asked 101st Airborne Division commanding General Anthony McAuliffe to surrender, telling him Bastogne was surrounded and his forces would be annihilated otherwise, his English language reply stated:

“December 22, 1944

To the German Commander,

NUTS!

The American Commander”

With attribution to General McAulliffe, my response to Facebook is NUTS!! What better way to express my contempt for its deplorable action.

I won’t be censored. I’ll continue telling hard truths to the best of my ability. 

Banishing me is Facebook’s shame - its CEO Mark Zukerberg and minions doing his bidding in cahoots with US dark forces, waging war on humanity at home and abroad. 

Banishment from their site is my badge of honor. I wear it proudly!
