Ron Paul is Locked Out of Facebook as Big Brother Crackdown Against Free Speech Worsens


In the midst of the most extreme, heinous and Draconian crackdown against free speech by Big Tech yet, libertarian hero and national treasure Ron Paul has been “temporarily” banned from Facebook under a suspicious rationale.

Paul made the revelation in a Twitter post on Monday that he had been locked out of his own Facebook page, supposedly for violating Facebook’s nebulous and unevenly-enforced terms of service:

With no explanation other than "repeatedly going against our community standards," @Facebook has blocked me from managing my page. Never have we received notice of violating community standards in the past and nowhere is the offending post identified. pic.twitter.com/EdMyW9gufa

Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) reposted the news about his father being targeted by Mark Zuckerberg’s team of censors:

Facebook now considers advocating for liberty to be sedition. Where will it end? https://t.co/Ws6pBq923N

Even though he is the victim of censorship, Paul was still able to get his “Texas Straight Talk” column out on the platform for the time being:

The only thing we posted to Facebook today was my weekly "Texas Straight Talk" column, which I have published every week since 1976.

It is a young year, but this is not the first time that Paul has been censored by Big Tech. Paul was targeted for spreading COVID-19 information that was unapproved by Big Pharma, as Liberty Conservative News has reported:

Veteran, obstetrician, and former congressman Ron Paul was one of the latest victims of online censorship on December 22, 2020.

He was censored for “medical misinformation”, despite his well-established medical background.

On that day, Paul tweeted “Very disturbing news: YouTube has pulled an episode of the Ron Paul Liberty Report and issued a “warning” that any more violations will result in our not being able to put up more programs.”

… According to the renowned liberty conservative congressman, YouTube singled out the video without warning. The video was already a number of weeks old.

Paul continued tweeting, “If you care about independent media voices now is the time to fight against blatant censorship. Let YouTube know how you feel about their attack on the Ron Paul Liberty Report…”

He added, “The decision by YouTube to take the program down and issue a warning makes no sense. We are a news and analysis program. Why take down a program that is several weeks old out of the blue?”

In the episode that ended up getting censored, Paul criticized Dr. Anthony Fauci of the CDC. The former Congressman took Fauci to task for opposing the use of masks and then flip-flopping by supporting them.

The censorship of Paul has shown that Big Tech is not limiting their censorship campaign to President Donald Trump and his supporters after last week’s contentious Capitol rally that turned violent. They are going after anyone with a point of view that is incongruent with the ruling regime. This corporate censorship is as injurious to liberty as any government censorship that has taken place.
