There is controversy brewing over Bernie Sanders and Facebook pages and groups that supported the presidential candidate. The Facebook pages dedicated to Bernie were reportedly being deleted. As reported by Heavy, a bunch of Bernie Sanders Facebook groups and pages were removed from the site, and that fact has Sanders supporters up in arms on Facebook and across other social media sites.
Facebook hasn’t issued an official statement regarding the Sanders groups being removed, nor has the computer addressed any other Facebook group’s removal. As reported by the Daily Beast, a Hillary Clinton Super PAC has spent $1 million to make their presence known on social media, so fears were that those types of groups were behind the Sanders Facebook page removals.
Folks who report Facebook pages for violent or pornographic content can have the pages removed. Some people perform this action against groups they don’t like. A screenshot on social media shows a person who did this against a Bernie Facebook page.
They weren’t small Facebook groups supporting Bernie that were deleted; some of the Sanders Facebook groups contained more than 50,000 members when they disappeared from Facebook. The supposed “synchronized attack” against Sanders Facebook groups seemed to happen when Bernie was speaking at a town hall meeting. The list of removed groups on Facebook included Bernie Sanders Activists, which is currently back on the site with more than 42,000 members.
There is at least one culprit to be found in Facebook user Casey Champagne, who bragged about taking down the pages in the pro-Hillary Clinton group BROS 4 HILLARY – #GiveEmHill — the pro-Clinton page was briefly taken down, but was restored on Tuesday.
Other Hillary Clinton fans were cheering on Champagne’s trolling, encouraging him to try to take down Bernie Sanders’ official Facebook page. Another Facebook user openly admitted that her husband frequently reported pro-Sanders posts on Facebook in hopes that they would be taken down, saying his success rate was “about 50/50 on a good day.”
Facebook user Robert Olivarez told Champagne, “You know they all can see this post?” Champagne cavalierly responded, “You know I don’t care?”

Think of this as just a successful 'Million Dollar' trial run. Imagine what a President Clinton can do by applying BILLIONS of Federal dollars to this same program.
They will blackhole the money under a secret DHS security program.

This certainly fits into what that group was designed to do.
I wonder how long it will take for the paid shillaries come on this thread to debunk it.
