Only days before the 2016 election, Facebook shut down our 100 Percent Fed Up Facebook page with almost 1 million followers. After Breitbart News wrote about our top conservative page being shut down, Facebook immediately reinstated it saying, “This was a mistake,” adding, “The page is back up.”
Ever since our popular conservative Facebook page was “mistakenly” shut down in 2016, the censorship team at Facebook has taken away over 90% of our traffic. We currently have 1.7 million followers, yet Facebook continues to keep our pro-Trump, conservative message hidden from the majority of our followers.
Yesterday, Facebook shut down the ability for a fundraising page for Sens. Kelly Loeffler (R-GA) and David Perdue (R-GA) to run ads, only days before GA voters head to the polls in an election runoff that will determine the balance of power in the US Senate, where the Republicans currently hold a 50-48 edge.
According to a tweet by the GOP Senate Twitter account, NRSC, their Facebook page allegedly violated a policy against “unacceptable business practices.”
In a message from Facebook with no further explanation, they were told, “We don’t allow ads that promote products, services, schemes, or offers using deceptive or misleading practices, including those meant to mislead or scam people out of money or personal information.”
“Big Tech is at it again,” the NRSC tweeted.
Big Tech is at it again.
This is unacceptable with only 4 days to Election Day.

Epoch Times reports – A Facebook spokesperson told news outlets that what happened was a mistake.
“An automated error caused this ad account to be disabled,” the spokesperson said. “The account has since been restored.”
