Facebook brought down the banhammer on the page administrator for Dinesh D’souza’s Hillary’s America on Saturday, two days before the Democratic National Convention begins and Hillary is finally coronated.
Journalist and producer Jeremy Oliver works as an outreach coordinator for Hillary’s America and posted links encouraging other group members to watch and review the film the night it premiered. Shortly after that, Facebook imposed a “temporary restriction” on his posting permissions.
While none of his posts have been removed from any groups, no one can share them. Oliver can’t join new groups, post in groups he belongs to, or comment on his posts until August 5 — even to groups, he’s an administrator of and belonged to for years.
When a group member asked Oliver, “How can I share this???” below his post and he tried to like or reply, a message from Facebook popped up and read: “Failed to like post. The action attempted has been deemed abusive or is otherwise disallowed. To keep from getting blocked again, please make sure you’re read and understand Facebook’s Community Standards.”
Oliver had also streamed a video of the crowd’s reactions to Hillary’s America, but it appears Facebook removed that, too.

We can wear suits of spiked armor and carry a huge banner and stand out front.
The American of today, in fact, probably enjoys less personal liberty than any other man of Christendom, and even his political liberty is fast succumbing to the new dogma that certain theories of government are virtuous and lawful, and others abhorrent and felonious. Laws limiting the radius of his free activity multiply year by year: It is now practically impossible for him to exhibit anything describable as genuine individuality, either in action or in thought, without running afoul of some harsh and unintelligible penalty. It would surprise no impartial observer if the motto “In God we trust” were one day expunged from the coins of the republic by the Junkers at Washington, and the far more appropriate word, “verboten,” substituted. Nor would it astound any save the most romantic if, at the same time, the goddess of liberty were taken off the silver dollars to make room for a bas-relief of a policeman in a spiked helmet. Moreover, this gradual (and, of late, rapidly progressive) decay of freedom goes almost without challenge; the American has grown so accustomed to the denial of his constitutional rights and to the minute regulation of his conduct by swarms of spies, letter-openers, informers and agents provocateurs that he no longer makes any serious protest.

I don't know if we need suits. Lard laden liberal lads probably can't throw a punch. Suits would be fun though, and I like the banner idea!
I think what's happening is the corporate sponsors are putting downward pressure on advertising firms who run the internet advertisers.
