Facebook has kicked off a new wave of censorship against non-mainstream media activists and outlets.

The text below originally appeared at ZeroHedge:

Just in time for midterms, Facebook has removed 559 pages and 251 accounts they claim have been spreading misinformation and spam. Several of the pages however – some with millions of followers, were pro-Trump conservatives who had spent years cultivating their followings.

Facebook claims that “domestic actors” have been creating “fake pages and accounts to attract people with shocking political news,” reports Bloomberg.

“The people behind the activity also post the same clickbait posts in dozens of Facebook Groups, often hundreds of times in a short period, to drum up traffic for their websites,” Facebook said in a Thursday blog post. “And they often use their fake accounts to generate fake likes and shares. This artificially inflates engagement for their inauthentic pages and the posts they share, misleading people about their popularity and improving their ranking in news feed.”

Some pages Facebook removed had large followings of real and fake accounts. Nation in Distress, a conservative meme page, was followed by more than 3 million people, according to the Internet Archive, which stores historical versions of websites and other online content. –Bloomberg

That said, not all of the accounts with large followings were conservative; Reverb Press, for example, had over 700,000 followers and constantly attacked President Trump and Republicans, who they referred to as “cheating scumbags.”

A third left-leaning page, Reasonable People Unite, posted a screen shot of a Twitter user who said, “Somewhere in America, a teenage girl is listening to her parents defend Brett Kavanaugh and she is thinking to herself, if something like that happens to me, I have nowhere to go.” –WaPo

The digital nanny state strikes again…

      they make you a favor since common sensed did not teach you not to seat on the table of your enemies and support them directly.

    Facebook and google do what the host nations require of them. Or they would have to pay taxes or agree to very very expensive legislation against their company

    Due to their extreme feelings of superiority and looking down on the rest of humanity whom they call “Goyim”, Jews have historically always drawn up walls around themselves, built up lies as defense mechanisms, and attempted to silence criticism and free speech wherever they went. I’m sad to say but Russia itself is partly responsible for feeding this Satanic kosher machine. By promoting and defending the Holohoax scam, Russia has for decades helped encourage and nourish this beast that requires slaying and putting down. Now that the monster has turned on Russia itself is Russia finally starting to complain and pointing out the obvious, that Jews aren’t interested in facts or debates, they are only interested in telling the Goyim a bunch of easily debunkable lies and punishing those smart enough to point them out.

    You can search the entire archives of the internet you will not find even ONE single interview or debate between a Jew defending Jew lies and a Goyim challenging them.

        Hi kike, there’s no proof that interview is real or if that person even exists. The way the supposed rabbi speaks constantly saying “Oy vey” almost makes it seem like he’s trying to be funny pretending to be a Jew. He makes outlandish claims that are borderline too wild even for you kikes like putting human meat in burgers, etc. I’m not talking about political satire, I’m talking about a real verifiable kike Jew sitting down and debating some Goy about any one of their million different lies. It doesn’t happen because Goys aren’t even allowed to talk about your criminality let alone have them publicly debated with a kike rodent scum.

      Do you think that “youtube, “twitter” etcetera, are not going to do the same thing?

      Many of the so-called new systems, like “Bitchute” are already blocking TOR Browser, which is the BEST true secure, privacy ( as secure and private as is possible) Browser.

      If any program, application or system you are using BLOCKS TOR, you are being spied upon-PERIOD!

    “Facebook community standards” to be listed as such shouldn’t the Community be involved in this ?
    Facebook can’t make a judgement on a community standard when the word itself defines a community as more than one, thus more people than they need to make that decision.

    The “Chickens are coming home to ROOST”

    I have been warning for years now via my own email list of Professional Writers, journalists, Business leaders ,Politicians, Intel sources, Activists, etcetera and on many Alternative News sites, such as “Southfront”, “Russia Insider”, “Blackstone Intelligenc”, “Resurrect the Republic”, “Veterans Today”etcetera, that Alternative News Sites and you commenters are only TALKING about what the ENEMY is doing instead of PROVIDING SOLUTIONS and now the price is really starting to come about AND it will get worse until YOUNG PEOPLE in the Alternative News start to DO SOMETHING, instead of just, in effect, “Gossiping”.

    If young people, especially in the Alternative News Media, do not start to ORGANIZE and actually do something, such as but not limited to protesting by the THOUSANDS, at Israeli Embassies in your cities, we, the Common Men and Women will be doomed to SLAVERY and GENOCIDE and VERY SOON. You in the ALT Media who continue to put “making a name for yourself”, above ACTION and the MESSAGE, will no longer exist

    While you all TALK, the ENEMY ACTS and is why they are winning.YOU and WE are all “Reaping what we have SOWN”. YOU DO NOTHING so YOU and your Children, GET NOTHING

    Wake up, before it is too late because the “Midnight Hour” is fast approaching
