Social media giant purges organizers of ‘let us work’ protests

Protests are breaking out all over the country and Facebook has just taken steps to shut them down. Facebook is purging groups that are organizing protests against the lockdown, arguing protests “violate stay at home orders.”

This is identical to China reinforcing Chinese Communist Party tyranny except they haven’t killed anyone yet. They are just making people disappear. 

Facebook has declared the protests are misinformation:

This is very disturbing. Will constitutional lawyers take notice???

This is free speech, but apparently it’s only for the socialist/communist Democrats.

HARRISBURG PROTESTS

Protesters gathered in Harrisburg, Pa., on Monday to demonstrate against a statewide stay-at-home order put in place in response to the coronavirus pandemic.

Video footage shows crowds gathering by the state capitol building. Some are not wearing face coverings in violation of the state orders.

Some of the protesters were holding flags supporting President Trump, and others were waving signs urging officials to “re-open PA.” 

Protesters were also driving cars through the rally honking horns in support of the demonstration and waving signs.

The demonstration is allegedly organized by three groups, “Re-open Pennsylvania,” “End the Lockdown Pennsylvania,” and “Pennsylvania Against Excessive Quarantine,” a local ABC News affiliate reported.

An “Operation Gridlock Pennsylvania” event is scheduled to begin at noon by a Facebook group called “Pennsylvanians Against Excessive Quarantine” that has nearly 67,000 members. The group was created by Chris Dorr, an Ohio gun activist, The Philadelphia Inquirer reported.

PENNSYLVANIA WARNS THE PROTESTERS

Pennsylvania officials warned against the planned protest last week.

“If you come to Harrisburg and you’re not practicing social distancing, then you are putting all of yourselves at risk,” Rachel Levine, Pennsylvania’s health secretary, said Thursday, the Inquirer noted. “So if a gathering like that happens and they’re not practicing social distancing … then they will be more at risk for contracting the dangerous virus.”

People should wear masks if they plan to get within the 6-foot limit, but they have the right to protest.

All of the organizers and attendees are being demonized in the media as fringe groups of the far-right. The social media trolls are calling them every name you can think of, such as racists, stupid, F***bags, ignoramuses, and dangerous.
