Earlier today, we wrote about Facebook shutting down the Proud American Facebook page, that was owned and operated by Sergio Tinoco, a proud American citizen who came to America from Mexico as a child, and worked in the fields as a 7-year-old in Michigan and South Texas. Tinoco served in the US Army for 10 years, became a US Border agent and author of “Proud American—The Migrant, Soldier and Agent.” Tinoco is the epitome of a legal immigrant who has given his all to America.
Facebook has been shutting down conservative pages since Trump won the election in 2016. Meanwhile, pages like Occupy Democrat owned by twin brothers, Rafeal and Omar Rivero, two Mexican immigrants who hate America and regularly post false information about President Trump and his followers.
Occupy Democrats, a far-left Facebook page that’s dedicated to pushing hatred for President Trump, his family, his administration, and his supporters, has over 7.7 million “Likes” (followers) with weekly engagement numbers hovering around 40 million. Since 2015, the site has seen gained an astounding 7.2 million new followers.
In 2017, while 100 Percent Fed Up Facebook traffic was down by 90%, the Miami New Times interviewed the Rivero brothers about the amazing success of their far-left Occupy Democrats Facebook page, saying, “according to a recent analysis by BuzzFeed, it [Occupy Democrats] wields more influence, at least on Facebook, than virtually any other news source in America.
This isn’t your grandmother’s journalism,” Rafael Rivero told the Miami New Times. “It is the Wild West of journalism — a new form of communication that’s reshaping the way Americans consume information and how they feel about it. And there are a few kingdoms, of which ours is just one.”
Here is a sample of one of the Occupy Democrats top posts on their Facebook page:
Occupy Democrats, for its part, has been called “partisan and unreliable” by Snopes, and four of its posts were rated as “Pants on Fire” by PolitiFact — meaning fact-checkers determined the posts made “ridiculous” claims. BuzzFeed’s analysis, meanwhile, concluded about 20 percent of the group’s posts were false or misleading.
The banner at the top of Rafael Rivero’s personal Facebook page includes a photo of himself and his brother seated with their friend, Democrat Senator Elizabeth Warren.
Democrat presidential candidate and habitual liar, Elizabeth Warren has taken to Twitter to campaign about how Facebook refuses to fact-check ads they run on their platform. Ironically, Warren,who lied about her native American heritage and about being fired for being pregnant, is whining about the possiblity of Trump lying in his Facebook ads, and Facebook not caring enough to stop him.
Earlier today, Warren tweeted:
The Trump campaign is currently spending $1 million a *week* on ads including ones containing known lies—ads that TV stations refuse to air because they’re false. Facebook just takes the cash, no questions asked.
Once again, we’re seeing Facebook throw its hands up to battling misinformation in the political discourse, because when profit comes up against protecting democracy, Facebook chooses profit.
Facebook holds incredible power to affect elections and our national debate. They’ve decided to let political figures lie to you—even about Facebook itself—while their executives and their investors get even richer off the ads containing these lies.
We intentionally made a Facebook ad with false claims and submitted it to Facebook’s ad platform to see if it’d be approved. It got approved quickly and the ad is now running on Facebook. Take a look: pic.twitter.com/7NQyThWHgO

With no evidence, Warren claims Facebook helped Trump to defeat Crooked Hillary in 2016, saying, “Facebook already helped elect Donald Trump once through negligence.”
Now, they’ve changed their policy so they can profit from lies to the American people. It’s time to hold Mark Zuckerberg accountable—add your name if you agree:

Funny, we haven’t noticed Elizabeth “Pocahontas” Warren whining about the tremendous success of the Occupy Democrat Facebook page, owned by her anti-Trump friends, while traffic to conservative Facebook pages like 100 Percent Fed Up is reduced by over 95%, and patriots like Sergio Tinoco who love America and support President Trump, are punished for sharing their views on Facebook.
