Facebook Deletes Member Pages Over Gadsden Flag (RUMOR)
SOS ^ | July 18, 2010 | swampsniper

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.

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.

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.

Meanwhile, I went over to FB and did searches on "Black Power" and "Nazi", and found plenty symbols and references for both of those.

I think we should get on there and send them email...except I can't find the email for their "admin"...

Given Jones' looniness, it might have had to do with something else and he's just trying to wrap it in the Gadsden to rally sane Conservaitves. There are still plenty of "mainstream" Conservatives with active Facebook pages: Laura Ingraham, Glenn Beck and sidekick Stu, Sarah Palin, Michelle Bachmann, Tea Party Patriots, etc.

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.

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.

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 put in an order with my favorite flag dealer... FlyMoreFlags.com (they're conservative and support the troops)

I wonder if Facebook's getting rid of the Culpepper Minute Men and Gonzales flags, too.

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).

..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.)

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.

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.

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.

Facebook is nothing more than a data mining scam and a means for fed type people looking for something “fishy@whitehouse.gov“. A good way for you to get on the “no fly” list.
