conservative author Matt Margolis has a new book coming out that is
already banned on Facebook. Margolis's first book, The Worst
President in History, which detailed the failures of
the Obama administration, was an instant hit last fall.
Margolis used social media to market his presidential biography to
#1 on Amazon. When he tried to market his latest, The
Scandalous Presidency of Barack Obama, he was
banned from Facebook groups for six days with no explanation. This
is the ad Margolis created and posted.
Margolis paid for this ad to be "boosted" throughout Facebook using
the advertiser program they offer. Facebook had no problem taking
his money for this ad but banned him directly after he posted it to
several groups. The groups he sent it to were all
conservative-friendly groups that normally welcome such
announcements and buy conservative books.
Margolis attempted to appeal the ban, he was unable to. This is
suspicious timing considering that James O'Keefe just released
videos of Twitter executives admitting to "shadow banning"
conservative content creators and even those who are associated with
Johnson, PJ Media's D.C. editor and terrorism expert has
been banned from Twitter since November, and
just the other day Facebook
admitted they censored conservative author Jon Del Arroz by
"mistake." PJM reached out to Facebook and
Twitter about the bannings in light of the scandalous undercover
tapes of Big Tech admitting to censoring conservatives -- or, as
they call us, "sh**ty people." Twitter did not respond.

Margolis told PJM, "but Facebook's reputation makes that possibility
hard to ignore. We're seeing companies like Facebook, Twitter,
and Google actively censoring conservative ideas on their platforms.
It is hardly far-fetched that big-tech censorship wouldn't include a
book that doesn't fit the narrative they support."

including the illegal gun running with the cartel dubbed "Fast and

points of view. "I fear this is only the beginning. Far -left trolls

spokesperson for Facebook told PJM that Margolis had shared his
advertisement to too many groups in one hour and that several had
deleted the post, leading to the ban. But upon investigation,
Margolis found none of the groups in which he shared the post
appeared to have deleted his post and, in fact, they have had
discussions in the comments sections. Facebook
rules are very ambiguous, however, not detailing how many posts
are too many, but threatening to delete your account if you
violate their unstated standards. No
group contacted Margolis asking him to take down his posts. In fact, Conservative
Libertarian Fiction Alliance group administrator Marina Fontaine expressed
shock that Facebook would ban a conservative author from posting to
conservative groups. "The purpose of conservative groups is to share
ideas and support each other. What else are they for?" she asked.
offered to send the evidence that the groups did not delete
Margolis's ads in the form of screengrabs, but Facebook was
unresponsive and the ban still stands.
