In January, the big tech. companies got together and did the unthinkable.
They colluded and banned President Trump from social media platforms in an effort to silence him and his supporters. Now, we all know that over the years, these companies have been silencing conservatives and anyone that is freedom thinking, but this was an incredible blow.
States across the nation have come together and started fashioning legislation making it illegal for these social media platforms to silence dissenting views but that hasn’t seemed to phase them one bit.
For example, just yesterday Facebook issues a statement announcing that Trump would be banned from their platform for AT LEAST TWO YEARS.
They also said that even after the two years were up it was not guaranteed that he would be allowed on either.
Talk about controlling.
To this day, at least to my knowledge, not one Democrat or leftist has been banned from Facebook or for that matter any social media sites for anything.
In fact, there are known radical Islamists still posting on social media looking to recruit those for jihad.
But the 45th president of the United States has been banned for incoherent reasons.
More details, including President Trump’s revealing response, below:
Facebook has upheld its ban of President Trump for the next two years. Regardless of your politics this should be chilling. We’ve effectively turned American big tech censorship into our version of China’s governmental censorship. https://t.co/Jbh0t0l0o5

Facebook announced they’re suspending Donald Trump for two years.
When will they be suspending the left wing groups that actually promoted violence all last summer?

President Trump can't post on Facebook but Planned Parenthood can schedule killing babies in abortions. Insane.

Thankfully, Trump is still swinging and is proving that he doesn’t need social media to get his message out.
So, with that Trump issued a fiery response to this over-the-top insane Facebook ban.
Next time I’m in the White House, there will be no more dinners, at his request, with Mark Zuckerberg and his wife. It will be all business.
So what we can take away from this pretty straightforward message is that Trump does intend to run again.
<sighs of relief>
Though no announcement has been made (or is expected for quite some time), the phrase “next time I’m in the White House” certainly implies that Trump believes he will be president again!
Unfortunately, until then, you can expect the mainstream media to be dancing on Trump’s political “grave” yet again.
BBC confirms President Trump’s epic reaction:
Facebook Inc has suspended former US President Donald Trump’s Facebook and Instagram accounts for two years.
He was barred indefinitely from both sites in January in the wake of posts he made on the US Capitol riots, but last month Facebook’s Oversight Board criticised the open-ended penalty.
Facebook said Mr Trump’s actions were “a severe violation of our rules”.
Mr Trump said the move was “an insult” to the millions who voted for him in last year’s presidential election.
Facebook’s move comes as the social media giant is also ending a policy shielding politicians from some content moderation rules.
It said that it would no longer give politicians immunity for deceptive or abusive content based on their comments being newsworthy.
Mr Trump’s ban was effective from the date of the initial suspension on 7 January, Facebook’s vice-president of global affairs Nick Clegg said in a post.
“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,” it added.
“If we determine that there is still a serious risk to public safety, we will extend the restriction for a set period of time and continue to re-evaluate until that risk has receded.”
On his return, Mr Trump will be held to “a strict set of rapidly escalating sanctions,” for any violations, Mr Clegg’s statement noted.
In a statement issued from his Save America political action committee, Mr Trump said: “Facebook’s ruling is an insult to the record-setting 75m people, plus many others, who voted for us…”
“They shouldn’t be allowed to get away with this censoring and silencing, and ultimately, we will win. Our country can’t take this abuse anymore!”
In a second statement on the two-year ban, Mr Trump attacked Facebook’s founder.
“Next time I’m in the White House there will be no more dinners, at his request, with Mark Zuckerberg and his wife,” the former president said. “It will be all business!”
The move by Facebook allows Mr Trump to return to the platform before the 2024 presidential election.
It also comes as he prepares to again hold the large scale in-person rallies that were a signature of his campaigns and presidency. One of his first is planned for Dallas, Texas, in early July, according to local media.
Earlier this week, it emerged that the communications platform set up by Mr Trump in the wake of his social media bans – From the Desk of Donald J Trump – has been permanently shut down.
In addition to Facebook, which has over two billion monthly users, Mr Trump has also been banned from Twitter, YouTube, Snapchat, Twitch and other social media platforms over the January riot.
It appears that Big Tech is stepping on Constitutional rights and is slowly trying to wrest power away from the government.

Given Facebook's creepy quasi-judicial sentence that Trump is banned for two years conditioned on being well-behaved, it's worth recalling the warnings of world leaders of the dangers of tech monopolies having this power.

I don’t know about you but this should concern all Americans and even our conservative friends around the globe.
What do you think about Trump’s response and what can we do to help fight back against these draconian measures to silence freedom speakers?
