Default Fakebook: Trump suspended for 2 years

Retroactive to 1/7

Silence Trump until after the midterms...how ****ing transparent can this bullshit be? Big tech tyranny continues...

BREAKING: Facebook VP announces Trump is suspended for two years

Facebook announced on Friday that it will ban former president Donald Trump from Facebook and Instagram for two years.

"Last month, the Oversight Board upheld Facebook's suspension of former US President Donald Trump's Facebook and Instagram accounts following his praise for people engaged in violence at the Capitol on January 6," Facebook said in a statement.
Facebook said that while the Oversight Board upheld Facebook's decision, it questioned the open-ended nature of the suspension.
"It was not appropriate for Facebook to impose the indeterminate and standardless penalty of indefinite suspension," the Oversight Board stated.

"We are today announcing new enforcement protocols to be applied in exceptional cases such as this, and we are confirming the time-bound penalty consistent with those protocols which we are applying to Mr. Trump's accounts," Facebook said of the decision.
"Given the gravity of the circumstances that led to Mr. Trump's suspension, we believe his actions constituted a severe violation of our rules which merit the highest penalty available under the new enforcement protocols," they continued.
"We are suspending his accounts for two years, effective from the date of the initial suspension on January 7 this year."

At the end of the two-year period, Facebook said that it would reaches whether the "risk to public safety has receded."
"When the suspension is eventually lifted, there will be a strict set of rapidly escalating sanctions that will be triggered if Mr. Trump commits further violations in future, up to and including permanent removal of his pages and accounts,í said Facebook.
"We know that any penalty we apply ó or choose not to apply ó will be controversial. There are many people who believe it was not appropriate for a private company like Facebook to suspend an outgoing President from its platform, and many others who believe Mr. Trump should have immediately been banned for life," they continued.

"We know todayís decision will be criticized by many people on opposing sides of the political divide ó but our job is to make a decision in as proportionate, fair and transparent a way as possible, in keeping with the instruction given to us by the Oversight Board."
Earlier today, Project Veritas exposed Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and one of his top executives explaining how they will punish whistleblowers who speak out against the social media platform's censorship.

2 years...what a coincidence.
I'm sure that has nothing to do with midterm elections.

WGAS WGAF? He's the ****ing former President of the United States - if he wants to say something to the public he can call a press conference.

**** Facebook - it's already well on its way to being irrelevant.

I don't know what I was thinking with LinkedIn either. I guess it seemed like a good idea at the time.

Meh. He should just start an account under the name "Tonald Drump" like everybody else that gets a banned. Or maybe " Pmurt Dlanod".

Perhaps "Zuckerberg99" is available...

If you are supporting facebook, twitter, and the rest, you're supporting Marxism in the US. Stop. Right now, stop. Delete your shit and stop giving money to people who not only hate you, they hate your way of life and hate your country.

I don't understand why any conservative/populist/Trump supporter would have anything to do with facebook.

I'll be surprised if FB is around in two years. It is the next MySpace.

There was already talk about breaking up FB. I doubt it will happen. It's the democrats microphone.

I'm on FB for only 2 reasons:
1. I'm able to keep in touch with my grand kids and my kids due to the wuhoo flu, and by buddies I hung around with during the glory years of my 20's.
2. I sell items on their market place.
Once the 2 issues above are resolved, I'm done with FB and it will be deleted.

And for those that don't think FB will track you because you don't have an account, they do. I suggest using the Brave browser or Firefox which has the addon "face book container".

I retired going on four years ago and have not posted or edited anything on Linked In since prior to that. Sometimes wonder why I even still have the account other than occasional updates on what former coworkers and industry acquaintances are doing. When I do go on the site I see there is a significant increase in virtue signaling

LinkedIn used to be great until it was bought by Microsoft. I still have an account but I may end up deleting it. I doubt I'll be working again. I only had it 4 years ago as I was looking for another job at the time, but now that I retired last year, I really don't need it.
