Facebook faced a growing backlash on their own platform Friday after the social network blocked users from sharing a New York Post report on the luxury homes owned by a founder of ‘Black Lives Matter.’
“How is that not a story? Black Lives Matter is a powerful entity, they raised more than $90 million just last year, they should not therefore be exempt from scrutiny or accountability, but Big Tech apparently has their back and says, ‘Nothing to see here, we’re going to censor this,’” Joe Concha said. “It is chilling.”

The New York Post responded Friday after social media giant Facebook prevented users from sharing a story regarding the co-founder of ‘Black Lives Matter,’ labeling their decision “arbitrary and laughable.”
“This decision is so arbitrary as to be laughable. Does Facebook know how many newspapers, magazine and websites highlight the real estate purchases of the rich and famous? The next time People magazine covers Kim Kardashian’s latest mansion purchase, will it violate any community standards? How about running a picture of the resort Ted Cruz is staying at?” writes the Post Editorial Board.
“No, this rule has not been and will not be applied in any fair manner. It again highlights just how much power these social media companies have over our lives, and our nation. They monopolized the market and became the main aggregators of news,” adds the paper.
“While failing abysmally for years to stop the torrent of truly harmful pedophilic, violent, personally abusive, terroristic, wildly inaccurate and hateful content that spews onto their platforms daily, they’ll step in to censor and cover for Joe Biden. They’ll cover for China. And now they’ll cover for Black Lives Matter,” concludes the Board.

LIBERAL HATE: Black Lives Matter Founder Equates Trump with Adolf Hitler
One of the original co-founders of the Black Lives Matter movement directly equated President Trump with Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler during an interview on Friday, saying the President is the “epitome of evil” who was trying to “kill our communities.”
Patrisse Cullors was speaking with the Los Angeles Times when she made her shocking statement, saying the President was as dangerous and as racist as the brutal despot behind for the Holocaust.
“We wouldn’t as a movement take a seat at the table with Trump because we wouldn’t have done that with Hitler. Trump is literally the epitome of evil, all the evils of this country: be it racism, capitalism, sexism, homophobia,” said Cullors.” He has set out the most dangerous policies not just that impacts this country but that impacts the globe.”
“And so for us, the answer is not to sit with Trump but to resist him and to resist every single policy that he’s implemented that impacts our communities,” she added. “I’m thinking about what I want my children to know in 30, 40, 50 years and I want them to know that I resisted a president at all costs because this president literally tried to kill our communities.”
Going back decades, the President has repeatedly denounced and unequivocally condemned all racists and hate groups in America and around the globe.
Speaking at a rally in Arizona earlier this week, the President again called on all Americans to unite in their fight against bigotry.
“What happened in Charlottesville strikes at the core of America,” said the President. “And tonight, this entire arena stands united in forceful condemnation of the thugs who perpetrate hatred and violence.”
PURGE GROWS: Facebook Blocking Users from Sharing Story About BLM Founder’s Luxury Homes

“Your content couldn’t be shared, because this link goes against our Community Standards,” responded Facebook as people tried to share the story.
“Facebook is now blocking the New York Post, reporting,” Tucker Carlson said. “We just tried to share that on Facebook, and we got a message, ‘You can’t share this link because it goes against our community standards.’ Those standards include flacking for every left-wing activist group in America.”
