On October 11th Facebook sent my company a notification that, as of today, we don’t get to have a voice in their world any longer.
Here are the ‘reasons’ stated by Zuckerberg’s crew regarding why they pulled the plug on our Facebook pages (2M followers). Pages, by the way, that we spent a BIG chunk of change building over the last few years.
Your Page has been unpublished
Your Page has been unpublished for misleading behavior, such as being administered by a fake account, misleading users, or violating the Facebook spam policies. This goes against the Facebook Pages Terms and Facebook Community Standards which help keep our community safe and respectful. If you think we made a mistake, you can appeal and we’ll take another look.
Here’s my response to Team Facebook.
ClashDaily.com engages in Misleading Users? Yeah, right. ClashDaily.com doesn’t trade in subtleties and deceit. We are a hard-charging, patriotic mosh-pit, that loves freedom, family and our flag and don’t mind challenging them that don’t with truth mixed with an irreverent sense of humor. Our brand of no-bullshit news reporting and op-eds have garnered us 230M page views in the last few years. If you define ‘misleading users’ as making them free thinking people versus Koolaid drinking Antifa clowns, then I guess we could be guilty.
ClashDaily.com‘s pages are administered by a fake account? That’s a joke. Our admin peeps have to double verify to login. Facebook has our driver’s licenses. In addition, my ClashDaily.com Facebook page was ‘blue checked’ approved by Facebook as being from me and not some zit-faced, content-farming, teen from Macedonia.
ClashDaily.com spams people? Uh, posting articles from your own website, to your own pages, is not spamming. Neither is sharing articles to private Facebook groups who love your content. Duh.
Yesterday afternoon ClashDaily filed an appeal which was quickly shot down in flames by Facebook’s Sanhedrin.
I believe Facebook made up the aforementioned vagaries so they could possibly escape the legal backlash that’s mounting against them and to pretend like they’re not against freedom of expression when everyone and their dog knows they’re trying to stifle freedom’s voice prior to the midterms. A myopic cyclops, with no eyebrows or eyelashes, staring into the sun can see that.
Ever since Trump got elected the insecure elite that make up Facebook’s ruling class have throttled back voices they disagree with on their Social Media(D) platform. The reason why is the voice of liberty is compelling and is winning over people by the millions and liberals can’t argue with it. Ergo, like good socialists, they start banning stuff. What’s next? Book burning?
Can you imagine being a part of a party, or system of thought, that is so delicate it has to make verboten speech it disagrees with? Wow … how lame. If I were a liberal, and my ‘leaders’ were into speech suppression, I would flee that lopsided ‘worldview’ because that weltanschauung has disaster written all over it.
Since you can’t find ClashDaily on Facebook any longer, you may subscribe to our mailer where we don’t need the permission of The Thought Police to communicate with you.
Oh, by the way. Facebook banned 800+ other pages during their purge. I’m not a betting man but, I’m a-guessin’ the lion share of those who got Zuck’s Paul Bunyan-sized axe were conservative. But I could be wrong.
One last thing, since Facebook gladly took our money to reach people and have now unpublished our pages, I think they owe us a refund.
By the way, since Facebook has unpublished ClashDaily’s page, your best bet to keep in the loop is to Subscribe to our ClashDaily Newsletter right here:

Facebook is getting overtly political.
Their response to ‘losing’ the election in 2016 is to do everything they can to prop up ‘their’ team in the Midterms.
They’re hoping and praying to whatever infernal power they may hold to for a ‘blue wave’ to sweep them into power in November.
