Facebook refuses to re-instate President Trump's account

So the trumpeted Facebook Oversight Board does not offer much oversight, and what it does offer is meaningless.

Wednesday that Board upheld Facebook’s suspension of Donald Trump’s account on Facebook and Instagram.  You can read that back story by clicking here.

Commentary

We realize what we are about to say will irritate some of our readers.  But here goes.

We are glad to see this decision.  It is right on one major point:  Facebook is a private organization and can do whatever it wants with its property…its webpages.  Those who do not like what they post should simple not go to those websites. 

We oppose the government stepping into this swamp.  While we do believe Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Amazon, Google etc. should be held to the same anti-trust standards that any other business is held to, the government has no business regulating these companies simply because they are powerful nor because they do things we don’t like.  The solution to those ills rests with the public.  And the public should simply shun them and those who support them (advertisers).

Conservatives have been delinquent in not supporting conservative alternatives to these liberal bulwarks.  Fortunately, such alternatives are beginning to appear.  President Trump just this week has started a website of his own and we hope all conservatives will support that effort.  It comes a bit late, but it can quickly make up for lost time.  From the Desk of Donald J. Trump | Donald J. Trump (donaldjtrump.com) is the website and we urge you to bookmark it and visit it at least daily.

If you believe in free speech, it is time to just say NO to Fakebook. MeWe has a similar format but allows free speech. Parler or Gab are also free speech social media sites.
