This was happening last night. I didn't see a dedicated thread on it, so I decided to start one.



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.


Now, the way this happens organically/naturally is when a lot of people all "report" a group on Facebook of being explicit/racist/pornagraphic. After a certain threshold is reached, Facebook automatically shuts down the groups until it can be staff-reviewed.

Now we know from threads HERE and HERE that Super PACs supporting Hillary Clinton are dumping millions of dollars to "correct" social media and online forums. Some organization calling themselves "Correct The Record" is hiring and paying people to post pro-Hillary stuff, and discredit and troll Sanders supporters.



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.


Gee, it sounds like the people abusing the system and being abusers have more protection than the people being abused. I doubt Facebook will release any information as to who or where all of these "reports" and "complaints" were coming from.

This wasn't just some small time thing either:



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.

This was HIGHLY organized and HIGHLY coordinated. It's a brilliant plan because of the built-in plausible deniability. Facebook's policy is to keep the identities of those who report stuff secret, so no one will ever know who comprised this online army against the Sadners Facebook Pages.

Some have said it was a "database error" -- which I find insanely repugnant. I'm sorry, but to insinuate that the night before a bunch of primary elections a bunch of Sanders pages ALL somehow magically get taken down for reported "pornography" or something else offensive was a "database error"?

And I believe in Peter Pan and Santa Claus. Right. Yeah, that's got to be the worst lie being sold right now online there is.

Who else has the means, motive and stands to gain from causing disorder/chaos/dissent and distraction among Sanders supporters? Who has a Super PAC that has admitted to trolling and spending millions online with a social media army?

The fact that a candidate wouldn't disavow this type of behavior speaks volumes as to their character. I have a sad feeling even Donald Trump would consider this to slimy for him. He's more of a direct confrontation type. I may not like him or support him, but at least he wouldn't allow millions of dollars to be spent on an online army of trolls and shills, slinking around in the shadows.

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?”

Well, if you invest millions of dollars into buying an army of thuggish trolls...you expect results.

Meet the 'results'.

I cannot stand people that try to shut down the opposition instead of debating the issues. Hilary can't beat Bernie in a war of ideas so she ends up trying to censor him from Facebook. THIS is exactly why Hilary should be the last person we elect this November. She will do anything to win and consolidate her power. She is the worst of a field of horrible candidates.

I honestly feel bad for Hillary. A presidential seat practically handed over to her and she still manages to mess it up. Sounds more of the same from old Hillary Clinton. Is there anything she doesn't fail at?

Oh and this sounds like something a Hillary supporter would do. At least based on my observations while surfing the web.

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.

So Bernie gets half his popularity taken away and given to Hillary? Sounds like sweet, sweet karma.

Sorry, couldn't resist.

Or cigars.. aka "stogies"


There is a reason it is called 'farcebook™' I was aware of their shady dealings when the biggest IPO in the history of mankind was delayed for 18 min. due to a Staffer tripping over the cord of the 1 computer they were using.

Then Agent Zuck surprises everyone He has ever known and gets married the very next day in a "Shared Asset State" of Ca. so when our grandkids' kids find out the whole of farcebook is nothing more than an informational seine, then WeThePeople can only take back $50B instead of the full $100B..

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.

Hillary's getting a bad wrap really. She would Never Stoops this low...😅😅😅😅
Sorry I can't stand her, I could not resist.

This has been the worst elections in U.S. history in my opinion. It's everywhere plus social media. Do it on social media and expect to get burned or Bern'd. It is only going to get worse as November closes in.

Best to stick with a personal Web page with security measures in place. At least then, any hack can be traced.😊


Go Vote folks😊👍

You realize "we" aren't electing anyone this election season? We'll be "given" Hilary; the "machine" will produce the results necessary to make that happen, but "we" have nothing to do with any of that.

This further reinforces why I don't have an account with Facebook - it's where all the worlds trolls practice their dark art.

It also further reinforces why the US political process has always been flawed - every election cycle is the same: The propaganda mouthpieces present the puppets for public consumption & quickly thereafter debates, dirty laundry and diatribe ensues and the only ones to suffer are the voters who'll once again get shafted via another failed delivery of pre-election promises.

What difference does that make 'they" have been dong it for years on the internet to non establishment candidates.
And so what Bernie does it too!(in reference from the Hillary Pact Troll reception).

No really, that's in part sarcasm but these things really have been happening. Also, didn't Hillary make a deal with FB for it to be politically in favor of her?

Great, now it's hit a peak. Pay attention. This is reprehensible:
"Hillary backers spam Bernie groups with kiddie porn"
NYPost

They forced the groups to be removed. They as in, whether they are part of her Pact or not. Will anything even be done about it?

I wonder how many people that are mad at this, will see the same pattern when she does it with Trump? Will they notice the same game plan or will they jump on?

Virtual armies on the social media battlefields.

This is what we've come to.

I mean I get it, but that doesn't mean I have to participate.

This circus gets weirder as the years roll on. ..

The thing is, Facebook knows who was/is behind it.

If it wasn't part of something the Clinton Super PAC "Correct The Record" ordered, then it'll exonerate the Clinton camp.

The thing is -- anyone can complain about anyone on Facebook. It's like being able to file fake virtual police reports -- and never worrying about consequences. You can totally make someone's life miserable on FB by constantly reporting their photos and their username -- and the person doing it will never suffer any consequences.
