Regular Atlas readers recall the story I broke a couple of months ago on Facebook fascism: Facebook's Fascism in Group Membership Elimination -- well, they did it. Despite several media outlets picking up my story, Facebook gave its users the big middle finger, but I believe we need a presence on Facebook -- so I ask you all to rejoin.
A few months ago, I warned of this deeply disturbing development at Facebook here. Facebook management began dismantling groups, eliminating their memberships with an "upgrade" that was only available to some groups. SIOA was never offered the upgrade. And as promised, our membership disappeared.
So rejoin, check the SIOA website and stay informed, alert and engaged. This war needs you.
Leftists and their Islamic supremacist allies have all the money, all the media, all the connections -- the only thing we have is the truth. And that is enough to enable us to win. But we have to fight back. In May, I told you about how Facebook was planning to pull the plug on our Stop Islamization of America (SIOA) Facebook group, with its 16,000 members, and other anti-jihad sites. This is the only thing the totalitarian Left can do to win: it can't refute us on the facts, so it has to silence us via chicanery like this game with the Facebook groups, as well as by vilification and marginalization in the media.
And now they've done it: the SIOA group is gone. They gave many, many Left-leaning and pro-jihad groups that were far smaller an upgrade option that enabled them to keep their membership; we were not offered that option. Our appeals to Facebook for just and equitable treatment were ignored.
We are not giving up. They can take away the connection we had with those 16,000 members, but they can't prevent those 16,000 people from loving freedom and being willing to fight for it. Please rejoin SIOA here ("like" the page) and watch that page for announcements of coming pro-freedom activities. They will never silence us, never intimidate us, never stop us. Freedom and justice will prevail.
We are going to continue to fight for freedom, but our resources are very limited. Please contribute to SIOA via PayPal to firstname.lastname@example.org.
