Via TTN:

Facebook has announced that former President Trump will be banned from the platform until at least Jan. 7, 2023, the marks two full years since his initial ban. It’s unclear if the former president will then actually be allowed back on the platform, Facebook said it will evaluate the “risk to public safety” regarding restoring his account. The announcement led Trump to drop his strongest indication about his 2024 political plans yet.

The decision even made Trump issue a statement that looked like he was declaring for 2024:

“Next time I’m in the White House there will be no more dinners, at his request, with Mark Zuckerberg and his wife. It will be all business!” Trump said.

“Next time” is an incredibly powerful statement from the 45th and possibly 47th president.

The Hill reports:

“We know that any penalty we apply — or choose not to apply — will be controversial,” Facebook’s Nick Clegg said in a blog post. “We know today’s decision will be criticized by many people on opposing sides of the political divide — but our job is to make a decision in as proportionate, fair and transparent a way as possible, in keeping with the instruction given to us by the Oversight Board.”

The suspension is being made under new enforcement protocols announced Friday in response to the company’s Oversight Board ruling that the initial indefinite suspension was not appropriate.

If Trump’s account is ultimately restored Facebook says he will be subject to a strict set of sanctions. The date coincides with the year before the next presidential election which Trump has teased he will enter.

Trump reacted to the ban calling it an insult to his supporters.

“Facebook’s ruling is an insult to the record-setting 75M people, plus many others, who voted for us in the 2020 Rigged Presidential Election,” Trump wrote in a statement. “They shouldn’t be allowed to get away with this censoring and silencing, and ultimately, we will win. Our Country can’t take this abuse anymore!”

Perhaps a counterpoint social application might be useful. Include an index of all the commentary that was rejected and which application rejected it, e.g., Facebook, Instagram, e.g., and it might even include rejections by individual newspapers, magazines and online outlets. If the volume is too great, it could be categorized by topic.

Can I get a show of hands here! Do you think FB, Twitter, Google, or any of the other platforms will ever ban chicom Joe and his Merry band of commies from these platforms? I’ll wait for the answers!

Facebook’s approval or otherwise is irrelevant to intelligent people. The only people who might care are losers who waste their lives trying to impress other losers, AKA “the Facebook set”.

FB is effectively removing Trump from participating in the 2022 mid term elections. How very liberal Democrat of them.

First of all, it’s been proven that Trump never said anything to cause violence. Has Maxine Waters been banned? How about the others that actually did threaten or carouse violence by their hate speech, so we KNOW this is all political cause FB & Twitter dose not like Trump. However we are able to hear from him and engage on other social platforms. So there is no loss! Only makes Zuckerface look like the hateful lying political rat that he is! Majority of people all over the world agree with that!

Then there is the Biden Administration that promote and associate with BLM and Antifa. Their hate speech has caused many killings and violence plus destroying businesses and property! But that is okay for FB where Trump has been proven that he said nothing wrong and never caused any violence. So it’s all political. Even proof of Hunter & Quid pro Joe involvement in Ukraine. Treasonous behavior in giving our tax dollars to countries that hate us and are a danger to America!

Never joined and never intend to. Just fine on email! But it is time to address google and their censoring as well. That tech is still at it. And that does impact me on email. Who are these morons deciding what I can see. They too want to block anything Trump and anything not in line with their little world! Break em up, sue the crap out of them. And incidentally everything google blocks I can use DuckDuck to see it anyway. Censorship is disgusting in a supposedly free society! Our way or the highway is not an open society.

I don’t think President Trump will ever return to Facebook should they decide to allow him to return to their platform in 2023. They need him & his subscribers more than he needs them. Being judged & censored repeatedly was the last straw for that terrible social media app!!!

****k Facebook and their disgusting tribe of hangers-on. Nothing they can do will stop people supporting Trump but their attacks on Trump may cause a serious drop in contributions to Facebook and, hopefully along with that, a drop in Facebook’s revenue.
