Conservative commentators Diamond and Silk and a band with a new patriotic song recently felt Facebook’s anti-American bias.
The Wes Cook Band released a video for “I Stand for the Flag” which Facebook flagged as political and prevented the band from promoting it.
“It has do with a level of political bias that we feel that Facebook has within its algorithms,” band member Nathan Stoops told Fox & Friends Thursday. “If these algorithms are programmed to reject content like ‘I Stand for the Flag,’ then I think that would give a lot of Americans the right to be offended by that level of bias within a company that purports itself to be politically neutral.”
On Friday morning, Diamond and Silk told Fox & Friends that they recently spoke to Facebook’s head of policy to tell him that their followers weren’t seeing notifications and posts from them. According to the pair, Facebook has neither responded to their complaints nor has it fixed the problem. Their new complaint comes after Facebook had locked the pair’s account calling their conservative, pro-Trump views “unsafe.”
“The Policy team has came to the conclusion that your content and your brand has been determined unsafe to the community,” an email from Facebook to the ladies said. “This decision is final and it is not appeal-able in any way.”
Facebook is demonstrating a bias against patriotic and conservative content. The fact that the company continues to limit the visibility of pro-American, pro-Trump and conservative messaging is indicative of a selected bias – not accidental selection.
There have been no public outcries because of Facebook’s censorship of pro-Hillary, pro-Ocasio, pro-DNC or anti-American messaging – NONE – because it’s not happening. These two incidents are just the two latest incidents in a long chain of anti-conservative bias and it doesn’t look like Facebook has any intention of fixing it.
