CENSORSHIP of conservative and populist viewpoints by Facebook is becoming routine now. It is almost expected and part of the fabric of the political landscape we live in. So, it is no surprise that Raheem Kassam has been hit with a new ban:
A new 30 day FB ban on me, but they won’t show me the post that has supposedly breached guidelines.
We all know what this REALLY is.
My fan page gets *10M* views a month (mostly UK) and we are nearly 60 days from a #HardBrexit.
This is political interference. pic.twitter.com/iaNgmbeIES

Politicalite, of course, has been the target of the same censorship.
It is not just conservative voices that face censorship. Speaking out against the Chinese dictatorship can earn you an exclusion from social media platforms as, Badiucao, a Shanghai-born Melbourne artist found out when he was pushed off Instagram for criticising the Chinese government but death threats against him were left untouched.
Free speech is now under consistent attack by Big Tech giants and it is only through supporting sites such as Politicalite that defenders of free speech can fight back.
