I got banned from Facebook.
I’ve had the same Facebook account for well over 10 years. I’m not Rush Limbaugh, or Sean Hannity, or Donald Trump or Mark Levin. I don’t have a million followers. I’m just a little old ex-cop.
I’ve always been a proud, unapologetic Christian Conservative who believes in a literal interpretation of United States Constitution. You know, that very document that prevented me, a cop, from searching people’s homes without a warrant (4th amendment). The document that said I couldn’t arrest someone for calling me a “pig” (1st Amendment). The document that said I could not just take away people’s guns, even if I thought they were “dangerous.” (2nd Amendment)
You know, THAT Constitution.
I’ve posted all kinds of things on Facebook. Pictures of me, my boat, places I’ve been, things I’ve done. I’ve posted memes and videos and news stories – many which shine a light on the insanity of the leftists in this country who, rather than move to an already established socialist Utopia like Cuba or Venezuela or Zimbabwe, want to destroy the nation (and Constitution) that we have here.
I’ve never been shy in engaging these lunatics. Anyone who has known me and read through online debates I’ve had with some of these losers know that my specialty is the ability to confront them with knowledge, intelligence, critical thinking, facts, figures and statistics. This usually results in the rabid leftist I’m debating reduced to calling me names or resorting to bumper sticker talking points. That’s when I know I’ve won the debate.
I’ve never posted anything racist – except when quoting things like Biden’s “If you don’t vote for me, you ain’t black” or “I don’t want my kids to grow up in a racial jungle.”
None of these things has ever gotten my account suspended. I’ve never been in “Facebook Jail” as others like to brag about. I’ve never been sent a notice reminding me about Facebook’s “Community Standards.”
But recently, I took things WAY too far. I crossed a line. I did something horrible, and it was too much for Facebook.
They were forced to completely DELETE my account.
There IS NO contacting the “Help Center”, because to use the Help Center, you have to be logged in. But I cannot log in, because my login credentials have been deleted. Facebook apparently doesn’t even want to HEAR my appeal.
So, what did I do recently to get kicked off Facebook after 10 years?
I wrote THIS BOOK:
I’m pretty sure that no one at Facebook has actually read my book. There is nothing racist in the book. There is nothing really political in the book. In fact, the book is just a collection of stories – my stories – from my time as a cop on the streets.
But it’s a book that honors Cops. And that is just too much for Facebook. It’s a bridge too far. If I’d written a book called “Burn Your City Down Because Black Lives Matter” – well, Facebook would probably promote and monetize my page. But I wrote a book called “BLUE Lives Matter” – and that was simply beyond the pale.
I’ve created a new profile using my “firstname.lastname@example.org” email address. But I have no idea how long it will survive. In the meantime, I’ve created a Parler account “@BrianWhiddon” and am learning how to use that platform. If you are interested in following me there, that is probably where I’ll end up permanently. Facebook was my primary option for promoting my book. But clearly they have decided to stand on the side of criminals and cop-haters who want to see your neighborhood burn down and who want to take what you have.
