Just days after being banned and deleted by Facebook, Natural News has now learned that Facebook banned Natural News because of an opinion article that Natural News never posted to Facebook. The article in question — “LGBT progressivism horrors” — warned against children being physically and chemically disfigured by parents pushing an LGBT indoctrination agenda onto their own children.
Facebook now says the existence of this article is the reason Natural News was de-platformed from Facebook. This means Facebook is banning channels for “off-platform” content.
It’s also an admission that Natural News did nothing to violate any community guidelines or terms of service with Facebook. Quite the opposite, in fact: The Natural News social media team followed a strict procedure of self-censorship all through 2019, meaning no articles about LGBT topics were posted to the Natural News channel on Facebook.

CNN’s panel of totalitarian wannabes is setting the table for the ban of President Trump’s social media presence.
And while CNN hides behind the Facebook is a private company so we can censor free speech regardless of the 1st Amendment excuse. Does that mean Facebook can violate any and all of its users Bill Of Rights?
And what about CNN? Who has systematically targeted the President over a false collusion narrative, targeted Trump supporting teenagers in DC, and openly targeted tax paying Americans by supporting Antifa. A communist leaning organization hell bent on the take down of the United States. Is there anything we can do to stop what is amounting to full blown treason occupying televisions across the United States?
Several mainstream media outlets announced news of Facebook’s latest Infowars ban within moments of each other, leading many to accuse the company of coordinating the announcement with members of the media.
On Thursday, users on Twitter noted that CNN, The Verge, The Washington Post and The Atlantic all published articles about Facebook and Instagram’s purge of content associated with Alex Jones within minutes of each other.
The Atlantic article even contained a custom graphic.
Microsoft’s new community standards for Xbox Live lay out a guideline for how to properly trash talk without being “offensive” or “hateful” to other players.
If a player sends a message deemed “harassing” they could have their entire account suspended, and several offenses will definitely get you banned.
According to the standards, when a user is permanently suspended they are forced to “forfeit all licenses for games and other content, Gold membership time, and Microsoft account balances.”
Officials who oversee Seattle’s transit system moved to ban political, religious, and other ads from its facilities and public transportation vehicles soon after Pamela Geller’s American Freedom Defense Initiative (AFDI) prevailed in a freedom of speech lawsuit against the city, earning the right to run FBI’s Most Wanted terrorist posters, Breitbart News has learned.
“People should realize that this is a struggle for the very foundation of any free society: the freedom of speech. If there is a group you can’t criticize, then that group can impose tyranny over you. If we lose this free speech battle, all our other freedoms are lost” Geller recently told Breitbart News via email.
She argued the advertisement ban sidestepped the September 2018 U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit ruling in AFDI’s favor, which allowed the group to advertise the Most Wanted terrorist list in Seattle.

In stark contrast to attempts in numerous western countries to stifle free speech online, Russian President Vladimir Putin defended Internet freedom during a conference earlier today.
When rulers of authoritarian regimes are more pro-freedom than western leaders, you know we’re in trouble.
Putin told the Russian Internet Governance Forum, “I am confident that we should continue to follow the principle of the freedom of the Internet, creating conditions for a wide exchange of information and the implementation of business initiatives and startups.”
The Russian leader said that it was important to balance free speech online with concerns about tackling cyber-crime and illegal content.
A man in the UK received a home visit from two police officers over an online comment he made about Brexit and was told to be “mindful” about his language, despite the officers admitting that he hadn’t broken any law.
A video of the visit shows the man challenging the police officers as to why they were at his door.
While officers failed to point out precisely what the man said that prompted the visit, one of them made reference to “some comment that you said you were going to drag someone out of an office.”
“I’m not saying you can’t use it or you shouldn’t use it, I’m just asking you to be mindful about what you’re putting on there, in case it’s deemed as inciting,” said the officer.
YouTube deleted a channel hosting a Joe Rogan podcast within 3 hours of George Soros-funded Media Matters lobbying to have it erased.
Titled ‘The Free Speech Channel’ – the channel hosted Alex Jones’ one hour plus interview with Rogan in Austin, Texas.
Within 3 hours of a Media Matters hit piece urging YouTube to erase the channel, it was deleted.
No content had been uploaded on the channel for over 6 months, but it was wiped on the same afternoon that Media Matters published its hit piece.
Last year, Alex Jones was banned by virtually every major social media platform in one 48 period. Since then, Big Tech has ruthlessly enforced the ban, with big channels having videos removed for even mentioning Jones.
