It is about time. Between Trump and communist Russia our social media is full of intentional BS. Deception and fraud are Trump's "go to" skills.

Our Ship of State is adrift without a rudder. Russia and China are our enemies. Have we forgotten Korea and Vietnam.
Vote for our Democracy. Do not be fooled by those that want to take it away.

We are at war without leadership. Foreign influence is jumping in along with biased domestic factions. It was a week move but better than nothing.

Facebook is not as bad as other organizations, but they too want to have it both ways. They want the protection of being declared neutral (not taking sides and censoring their political opponents), but they also want the freedom to take sides, which stifles the debate.

I think AL should stay completely out of this. It’s way too late and it would be difficult to be bipartisan.

Face Book is very liberal. This is a ploy to deny conservative ideas on their site.

Facebook is now doing the Bidding of China and their Puppets in the DNC and RNC. This is Censorship, as Facebook only removes Conservative Patriot post's and is totally sold out to Destroying what all us Veterans paid for with Blood! George Orwell told us this day would come and so did every defector from Russia and China, but we did not listen and now Fascist's are running our Government, behind the scenes! When are Americans going to have enough of the Leftist Propaganda, being spewn on the nightly news and open censorship on Social Media? We must support Donald Trump and expose and eliminate these Anti American Domestic Enemies! All of us took the same Oath as our Political Leaders, but we were subject to Discipline if we violated our Oaths, where these Domestic Enemies can ignore and trample them, with no fear of Incarceration, or even Indictment! We as Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Marines, would be doing time in Leavenworth for far less than the Breaches in National Security and Treason, these Enemies are allowed! We must stand against these Tyrannical Elites and stand for our Oaths we hold Sacred and the Honor we deserve for paying such a cost for Freedom! Thanks to all of you for your Service to this Great GOD, our Great Country and Our future Generations!

You are not paying attention the media has been keeping politician as honest as they able. the score is 1 to 6 trump to fox and every other network. The CDC was once the greatest health organization IN THE WORLD. trump has made it a laughing stock. As well as the rest of the world. How on earth does anyone remain loyal to a man who employs bullying and immature name calling oh yes if you disagree or try to suggest a reasonable alternative. His statement that anyone who served in Nam are suckers and losers. His comment when told that John McCain was a hero, he said again he was a loser not a hero, trump said he prefers his heros to not get caught. What absolute horse shot. Those who resent having our signs etc in Spanish would obviously rather have them in Russian. He also had nothing to do with changes in the VA that helped Veteran. These laws and policies were written by the House and Senate ha made such a big deal about signing them like no other president. A perfect example is his claim with regard to the Choice program originally written by the "loser" John McCain and signed into law by Barack Obama in 2014. Which must be renewed every 3 years. This information can be found on the VA public relations dept. another of those dreaded liberal media organizations. I'm too tired to go on but one last thing if you don't swear alliance to Donald he will find someone who will. All his Cabinet and staff are "acting" or unconfirmed members. Including Homeland Security, leaving America with a Department head without any security or policing experience. Please please look this crap up. He has changed, fired or otherwise replaced his Cabinet or main staff 415 times in 3.5 years. Some of the first 7 or so are in prison or prosecuted for crimes or plead guilty to the same, to avoid jail.

My issues with censorship remain the same; freedom of speech and who gets to decide what's misinformation.

Freedom of speech is protected by the First Amendment and has no caveats attached. What one person perceives as fact, another may not agree.

Who gets to decide what's correct and what isn't. Same issue with gun control; who gets to decide who can and can't own a gun. The obvious liberal bias of almost all social media platforms, especially Facebook, begs the question. I don't need some faceless troll working in the basement of their parent's basement censoring what I say!

Facebook has 20 fact checkers 18 of the 20 have ties to George Soros. From my experience with them their criteria isn't good for America. They constantly push forth their own Marxist agenda.

On Thursday morning we learned that from a poll by Stars & Stripes Trump is under water with active duty troops. On Friday morning we learned that the Stars & Stripes, which has been active since the Civil War, was being cancelled. Later today we learned that Trump had taken enough heat he has reversed himself on that cancellation.

Yesterday we read how Trump has disrespected American troops as suckers and losers. It has been pointed out that if Trump had not said these things in the presence of others, both General Kellyand General Mattis would be coming to his defense. They have not.

Trump has denied saying dozens (probably hundreds) of things that in fact have been recorded on video. Now some want to defend this liar's right to put more of his lies on face book.

The majority of statements that are supposedly spoken by the president that are negative about our troops and also about numerous other topics are merely a misrepresentation of the actual statements made and are selectively taken out of context just to support the liberal left. Maybe Facebook should censor their comments. Oops did I actually make facebook sound like they could do something right because I know that they can't. Ha Ha

FREEDOM OF SPEECH is our right to speak anything, in
public but,it does not give us the freedom of truth
( half truths are not the truth). We have the right to fact check,
do it before you vote.

We are. Navy family. I do not know anyone that i served with or at the legion is a loser or sucker. Wake up America.

The problem is who at Facebook gets to decide what is "Misinformation?" I don't believe that Facebook knows misinformation if it hit them in the face. This will have to be fact checked so it has no meaning!

Facebook is more like censorbook for the liberals. They are even sneaky about it like the left. They will remove a post and say it was deleted by the owner or you can't see it because of privacy settings. But why can I, the owner not see it? Do I not have the right privacy level to see my own posts? And no I did not delete anything. This is just another way to censor and blame it on someone else like the facebook user himself. SOOOOOOO backhanded and cheap. SAY NO TO FACEBOOK IS SAYING NO TO CENSORSHIP!!!!

Trump cultist need to wake up to reality. We have heard Trump tell Bob Woodward just how dangerous coronavirus is, yet the Liar-in-Chief went on to call it a hoax.
