As I said a while back, and more than a few times, when it falls on your own head that is when you stand up and shout. As long as it’s someone else, and especially someone you don’t know…the consensus for the lukewarm is, “Well, that’s their own fault because…..” The because is anything that person judging the matter wants to perceive it.
Read their press release: Facebook shuts down major left wing group in Britain
For immediate release.
Facebook has shut down the accounts of one of the biggest left wing organizations in Britain, the Socialist Workers Party (SWP) (1). The Socialist Workers Party Facebook page – as well as account of local pages – have been removed from Facebook with no explanation given. Those targeted say it amounts to a silencing of political activists.
Facebook took the action on Friday, shutting down the Socialist Workers Party page and removing dozens of leading SWP activists from the platform.
The SWP Facebook page regularly posts in support of Palestine, Black Lives Matter and against Boris Johnson’s Covid policies. It also hosts dozens of online events every week that activists across the country take part in.
The SWP say they have been silenced for speaking out on these issues and that the action taken by Facebook amounts to an attack on political activists to organise. They are demanding to be reinstated immediately.
This is the second time Facebook has removed SWP accounts. In December, Facebook disabled the accounts of 45 SWP activists but admitted they had done so in ‘error’ and reinstated the majority of those accounts.

ISN’T SOCIALISM WHAT THEY WANTED?
This is what happens when real history is not taught in the schools. No one knows how some ideas are just plain bad ones. Healthy debates without food fights and baseball bats, help to see points of views and instill critical thinking. However, when youth are taught to memorize and that is all they know how to do…once they run dry of the memorized lines, all they have to resort to is yelling curse words and committing violence. There is no such thing as a healthy debate. It is all in the streets and full of destruction and chaos. They believe that is the only way they will be heard. And they are heard. But, the message they are saying is “WE ARE OUT TO DESTROY ALL OF YOU IF WE DON’T GET OUR WAY- there is no MIDDLE GROUND!” Therefore their way often DESTROYS YOU! Little do they know that type of message is not one of freedom and liberty for all, that is a message of – to hell with you! It’s a terrorizing message to be in your home or London flat and have a mob decide you have a privilege that they want and they have the right to break in and steal from you or worse, burn you down. All so you will hurt and feel their pain.
You just can’t make some people happy. The question is….will they finally take a stand for LIBERTY AND FREEDOM? Imagine the good they could do for their cause of fairness if they marched with ferver in their hearts for what is right for all people?
If they are given their free speech back, will they go back out and riot again? Or will they do it lawfully? With Facebook and Twitter it really doesn’t matter, because it was never about the election, never about right or left, it was always about total control!
Stay tune for part 6 which will come after part 10, because nothing in Wonderland is ever like it is supposed to be. But it all makes perfect sense to those who live there.
They just keep on coming…
