Facebook censored conservative pundit Michelle Malkin for posting photos of herself with Laura Loomer and Gavin McInnes. Loomer was recently deplatformed by Facebook on Facebook and Instagram. McInnes was banned by the social media company last October.

Malkin took to Twitter to reveal that Facebook deleted her post saying, “It looks like something you posted doesn’t follow our Community Standards.”

Along with posting photos of herself with Loomer and McInnes, Malkin accompanied the photos with the following statement:

“These are two of my friends, Laura Loomer and Gavin McInnes. They are banned from Facebook and Instagram for exercising their free speech — while violent jihad groups are allowed on these platform to spread their murderous poison. I spoke out passionately about de-platforming at CPAC and have done what I can to use my voice to speak for the voiceless. Laura and Gavin are suing the radical forces (SPLC and CAIR) behind the insidious agenda to criminalize political dissent. I have donate to their causes and I hope you will too (DefendGaving.com and LauraLoomer.us) I do not know hot much longer it will be before I am next. Anyone and everyone who refuses to capitulate to the open-borders, sharia-enforcing social justice agenda is “DANGEROUS.””

The Atlantic had previously reported that Facebook and Instagram were going to be censoring and removing content relating to Alex Jones’ InfoWars website if the posts were not condemning the website.

Infowars is subject to the strictest ban. Facebook and Instagram will remove any content containing Infowars videos, radio segments, or articles (unless the post is explicitly condemning the content), and Facebook will also remove any groups set up to share Infowars content and events promoting any of the banned extremist figures, according to a company spokesperson. (Twitter, YouTube, and Apple have also banned Jones and Infowars.)”

It appears that censorship also applies to Laura Loomer and Gavin McInnes.

Malkin would encourage her followers to sign-up for her newsletter noting that Twitter had already sent her notice for her “Mo Cartoons.”

Malkin revealed back in February she had received a notice from Twitter’s legal department warning her “to get legal counsel because anti-blashphemy Muslim zealots complaing that my Mohammed Cartoons tweet violates Pakistan’s laws.

Not only did Malkin reveal Facebook had censored and deleted her post, but she revealed that Facebook was actually targeting her to spend money to “spread the news about how my harmless content is being banned.”

She would also point out that Facebook offered her to join their new “Fan Subscriptions” service. A screen shot of the email reveals “Fan Subscriptions” will allow fans to have their audience financially support them through Facebook. It appears similar to Patreon, but would operate through Facebook, where the social media platform will eventually take a cut of the fan support.

Malkin spoke to Breitbart News regarding the censorship, “I will not stop protesting discriminatory de-platforming until I’m booted off the Big 3 (Facebook – 2.1 million followers, Twitter 2.1 million followers, Instagram -60,000 followers).”

She continued:

“Since I created my first website in 1999, I have donated time, money, and energy to helping keep the Internet free and supporting independent and grass-roots voices fighting on the front lines. The witch hunts led by SPLC/Soros and CAIR/Hamas are crippling the effective activism and investigative journalism that pro-liberty and pro-sovereignty Americans desperately need and want.”

She then called on Republican attorney generals across the United States to begin launching investigations into the social media censorship.

“We can help by funding McInnes’ and Loomer’s lawsuits. But we can’t do this alone. Every Republican attorney general should be investigating. The non-profit status of every speech-squelching hit group conspiring to silence anti-Jihad, anti-open borders, pro-life social media users should be challenged. And we need more than tweets from the president.”

Facebook recently censored Bounding Into Comics as well. They deleted our 250k+ fan page before eventually restoring it. We are also encouraging you to sign up for our newsletter. We are also on Gab and MeWe.

What do you make of Facebook censoring Michelle Malkin?
