(WatchDogReport.org) – Facebook is in hot water again. The company, which has repeatedly targeted President Donald Trump and other Conservatives, took it to a new level. This time, the social media giant went after students.
On October 8, Facebook announced it had taken down a number of pages they believed to be using fake accounts. The problem? Quite a few pages associated with Turning Point USA, a pro-Trump student group, were taken down, as well. The organization was working with a marketing company, Rally Forge, to create a network of pages on the platform.
Facebook claimed it was akin to a troll farm.
Facebook will permanently ban a conservative marketing firm running what experts described as a domestic "troll farm” — in a probe of deceptive behavior prompted by a WaPo article.
The firm, Rally Forge, was "working on behalf of Turning Point USA."https://t.co/EhyXNoDYeF

It seems as though the censorship from social media companies of Conservatives is growing as election day gets closer. It’s almost like they’re trying to drown out the influence of Trump’s supporters and help Joe Biden win. Are we supposed to believe that’s a coincidence?
