FACEBOOK continued its shocking assault on the free-speech by right-wing figures and has banned Raheem Kassam for ‘violating its community standards’.
Raheem, who is re-launching former U.S. President Ronald Reagan’s favourite magazine ‘Human Events’ in just days, tweeted: “Oh look! As if by magic, 2 days before we are due to launch @HumanEvents, Facebook suspends me from posting to my pages (which have over 1m fans in total) for 3 days!”
“No explanation of course,” added Raheem.
Responding to a question by BuzzFeed’s Mark Di Stefano, Raheem added that he had posted about North West MEP candidate, Tommy Robinson a few days before.
Speaking to Politicalite Raheem said: “Once again Facebook has sought to restrict my access to my fan page, with just 48 hours until we relaunch the oldest conservative publication in the United States.”
“At this point, I am convinced there is some little nerd in Facebook HQ watching my life, and seeking to disrupt me at every juncture. It is cretinous behaviour and not going unnoticed by some very powerful people”, added Kassam.
His temporary ban comes days after the social network totally banned Politicalite and DELETED our page with a reach of 2m-a-month and of over 43k followers.
Facebook banned the ‘Politicalite UK’ page just moments after we reported on Tommy Robinson’s decision to run for North West MEP in the European Elections.
Facebook has not yet responded to repeated requests for comment.
