Posted on 07/18/2010 8:39:43 AM PDT by SWAMPSNIPER
Facebook has sensationally banned the official Alex Jones Facebook page after a customer services representative admitted that all material containing images of the famous Gadsden flag was being deleted by the social networking giant.
Not confirmed as of now. I suppose the best way to find out is to post a Gadsden flag on Facebook!

Everyone should cancel and not support the evil Facebook.
I wonder how many Facebook pages display a hammer and sickle?
I do not and don’t have any plans to set up a facebook site soon. But I will say this is not beyond the realm of possibility. We’ll see.
No sympathy for Alex Jones, the jack-@ss who threatened Michelle Malkin.
I use the Gadsden flag as my profile pic because I heard that it pi$$es off some people.
Same here but the Gadsen flag is an important symbol from deep in American history.
So create a FreeFacebook which keeps the don’t tread on me flag and deletes pages with commie flags.
Isn’t Alex Jones one of those “the Jews run Communism” people? Doesn’t he support Arab Commies as “the white man’s friend?”
Seems like a good time to scour random Facebook users to see what apparently is acceptable. Chairman Mao? Hammer and Sickle? Black Power? Surely a yup, yup and yup.
The Gadsen is on my FB page...just checked and my account is fine and the flag is still there.
Facebook is not that bad, and can be what you want it to be. Just ask Sarah Palin who uses it regularly to tweak the White House and their lamestream lackeys.
I had a feeling this would be quickly debunked.
Don’t have a Gadsden on my page, but I will now.
I’ve got a facebook account as well. I mostly use it as a means of connection with my family.
For Facebook’s sake they’d better not — if these guys are on FB — mess with that biker bunch who passed me yesterday on the LA freeway - all with the American flag and the Gadsden flag on their motorcycles! As for me I deactivated my account after it was hacked.
“I use the Gadsden flag as my profile pic because I heard that it pi$$es off some people”
Perhaps, I know Old Glory really rattles quite a few!
I have posted the Gadsden flag with the header “Facebook bans patriots for displaying Gadsden flag! We shall see!
Same here, and to follow some of the mainstream Conservatives I listed who have active pages and regularly advertise post there. Laura’s got a lot of great photos of herself on the road, as do Michelle and Sarah.
I just checked and that page is still there, at that, I use it often to help identify and weed out the nuts off my friends list (any mutual friends with Jones are gone unless they are family).
Well, I don’t know how many people it will piss off, but if there’s anything to this story, I’d like to know. I updated my profile pic today...we’ll see!
..another confirmation this is a bogus rumor, I just checked my friends list and at least a dozen have the Gadsden as their profile pic.
These type of rumors about Facebook pop up all the time and so far none seem to have been true. I think they are just ploys to drive attention to another page (such as spreading a rumor about Alex Jones’ page being removed there to drive up searches for his page.)
I also posted it to my fb page as soon as I read
That was late yesterday...it’s still there...thus far...

Yep, Jones is an idiot and no friend to Conservatives.
Pretty quick with the ‘evil’ aren’t you?
Alex Jones is a truther. That’s all one need know.
-From Alex Jones website "Prison Planet"
I doubt highly this is true.
People need to understand that anything that reflects our countrys history, makes you a radical. There needs to be another outfit that can come up with a, some what, copy of Facebook but from a conservative point of view.
No because if you had read others on this site. They have Facebook pages with the flag and it is still on the Facebook page. Before you start trouble why not see if it is true first and also check out the idiot who wrote this trash story first.
Oh Brother...they do it is called Free Republic. lol. So you want a site that has conservatives only. So the liberal family member is banned from joining? Facebook is fine....it is this story that is crap! Remember how people will knock down anything that is successful.
Maybe they should focus on getting rid of all the viruses on their site. Going to Facebook is the cyberspace equivalent of unprotected sex, flirting with a computer STD.
All I did was do searches on FB...how is that starting trouble, exactly?
I new someone would take it as a “conservative only” site. What I meant was establish it from a conservative standpoint. And no, don’t ban liberals but don’t ban anything that supports our countrys history. Facebook is extremely successful but in most cases, it can go to their heads to the point that they feel they can do anything they want. If this is what is happening, they will eventually lose out to another program that is open to all views. Free Republic is not a Facebook style of program and was never meant to be.
Although I believe it to be a false rumor, the story doesn’t actually say that they’ve all been removed.
Facebook is nothing more than a data mining scam and a means for fed type people looking for something “firstname.lastname@example.org“. A good way for you to get on the “no fly” list.
Wouldn’t be a surprise. But they sure can’t remove the one in front of my house!
Why not support one of the alternative proijects that were publicized when the privacy flap was big?
