BIG TECH PURGE: Facebook permanently bans Conservative #WalkAway group because it supported Trump

Just as we said they would, Facebook is using the Capitol riot as an excuse to begin purging conservatives from their platform, especially the ones who supported President Trump:

According to DC Examiner, Brandon Straka said that everyone associated with the page, including volunteers, have all been banned:

Straka confirmed to the Washington Examiner that his Facebook group, the business page for the nonprofit group, and his personal account were all shut down Friday morning.

He added that people merely associated with the page were also removed from Facebook.

“Every volunteer, every paid employee, banned,” Straka said.

“This is only the beginning of a total conservative shutdown if we don’t get help,” Straka added in a tweet to Sen. Ted Cruz asking for assistance.

I’m not personally familiar with this group, but Straka has been on Tucker Carlson’s show in 2018 talking about how he used to be a liberal before he realized how the media was lying to him about Trump. He left the progressive movement and started the #Walkaway page to encourage other liberals to walk away.

As far as I know, this is not a hateful group at all. It looks like they are getting purged because they are MAGA.

But it’s not just Facebook. Straka has also complained of Twitter purging a bunch of his followers:

This has been happening to me and plenty of others. I had over 40,500 followers on Jan 3rd of this year. Now I’m down to almost 40,000 in just 5 days. I suspect some of these MAGA accounts that Twitter is purging for whatever reason. But some of it is just Twitter unfollowing people from me. I reached out to one person and they said they didn’t unfollow me, yet it happened. And plenty of other people are making the same complaints.

We are in the midst of the Great Big Tech MAGA Purge.
