Where Are The Conservative Talking Heads ... While The Base That Carries Their Message Gets PURGED?
Great American Republic (formerly Allen West Republic) ^ | October 12, 2018 | Tanya Grimsley

[Full title: Where Are The Conservative Talking Heads and GOP Politicians While The Base That Carries Their Message Gets PURGED?]

Recently my Facebook page that I built organically from the ground up was caught up in a blanketed Facebook purge. Most of you know my page. Most of you have benefited from the exposure I have given you on the page as well as my website. You see, Allen West Republic (now Great American Republic) with 953,000 followers, always supports the best of the best. From Sean Davis and Mollie Hemingway at The Federalist to Paul Sperry at Real Clear Investigations, New York Post, right down to those who had no platform when Facebook started, the likes of former Congressman Allen B. West, former Secret Service Agent Dan Bongino, to Fox News darlings Dr. Gina Loudon and Deneen Borelli.

I am Tanya Grimsley. My page was taken from me unjustly, unfairly and with lies masked as new rules. Newly created Facebook rules that don't even apply to my page or my personal profile to which was also removed from Facebook.

As you can see here on my website I provide valid sources, give full credit to each writer, and I only post from trusted reliable news sources. CNN, NBC, ABC, Fox News, Politico, Breitbart, Daily Caller, Daily Wire, Hot Air, the Blaze and more ..... All of these news sources are blue check marked on Facebook and Twitter. All proper link-backs, citations and proper block quoting used on each and every article. My father Paul and I summarize and give a brief introduction to every article and then direct all traffic to the site we borrowed a small portion of their content from. None of what Facebook has given as reasons for purging my profile and page fall inline with anything that was given as a reason.

(Note: Media Matters has taken it upon themselves to list this quality website as fake news which is slander and libel. This article proves who is driving the truck for getting all the conservative sites taken down. Media Matters.) Prove it Media Matters. There is ZERO fake news on this site.

I reached out to my Facebook Representative and for the first time was given a blanket reply. No personalization, knowing she has helped me numerous times before. Including my hacked account this year and being tossed in Facebook jail for a silly meme for 30 days.  Here is what she said:

Here is more information on why Facebook has made the decision to remove your account and pages from the platform, along with 559 Pages and 251 accounts that have violated our Spam and Coordinated Inauthentic Behavior (CIB) policies.

The pages are being removed for inauthentic and spamming behavior on the platform. Our team has detected the use of fake accounts or multiple accounts with the same names or by accounts not under your name. These posts then link to websites that are entirely separate from Facebook and seem legitimate, but where most of the content is ads. These accounts have also posted the same clickbait posts in dozens of Facebook Groups, often hundreds of times in a short period, to drum up traffic.

The artificial engagement generated by inauthentic behavior, whether through the use of multiple accounts, fake accounts, and/or ad farms cannot be used to inflate and mislead people about your page’s popularity.

Second, we proactively took down a network of financially motivated, political accounts and Pages, for violating our spam and CIB policies. You can learn more about the decision here:

Today’s decision was based on violations of Facebook’s existing spam and coordinated inauthentic behavior policies, the type of content posted by all accounts impacted was not a factor.

My page represents my website. My posts from my website go to my Facebook page. There is nothing inauthentic, nothing misleading, nothing that even resembles anything as described in this generic reply.

So I ask you, Ben Shapiro, Michelle Malkin, Dan Bongino, Former Congressman Allen West, Paul Sperry, Sean Davis, Charlie Kirk, conservative politicians and the rest of you that still have your Facebook and Twitter accounts with your blue checkmarks:

What are you doing to help the conservatives like me who blast the conservative message from sunrise to sunset 365 days a year?

What about the major stake we all have in this?

How will you keep the conservative base informed and getting them to turn out? They cannot be informed if you have no voice. Our voices. They have been purged. You have been silent.

What? You see good people have been taken down, yet you offer no help or turn a blind eye.

What good will your voice be when there is no one to take it further because the ones who were passing along your messages have been purged?

Where is your drive?

Why aren't you helping us? Because Lord knows since 2009 I have helped each and everyone of you I have mentioned above and many, many, others more than once.

I respectfully ask each and everyone reading this to find one bad thing you can say about this website and it's creator, me, Tanya Grimsley. There is no one in my travels on social media that can find one ill word to speak and many of them have reached out in utter disbelief that my personal account that I have had since 2008 and my beloved Facebook page has been removed. >>>>> Where are your blue checkmarks?

Where are conservatives to defend? They are mostly Never Trumpers and happy to see the herd thinned of the more conservative, often Trump and Tea Party members.

Facebook is a C Corporation. It is not allowed to contribute in-kind or financially to politicians under the law.

Is there a class action conspiracy to donate and illegally influence elections lawsuit here? By pulling most conservative sites from FB, I believe FB is donating in-kind to every democrat running for office.

An unjust travesty against our First Amendment rights... Freedom of Speech and Right to Peacefully Assemble.

Zuckerburg, your actions are disgraceful. Please reconsider and restore these people immediately!

Apologies are in order.

You’re not contributing to the conversation.

I am not defending blogpimps. As you’ll see, I included the entire article here. No excerpts.

Please leave me alone. If you can’t contribute to the conversation, please just don’t leave a comment. You’re really not being helpful.

Facebook = private company. Just ignore them, FB is irrelevant.

Perhaps, if that is your wish, you should not post things like this:

And if you're renown for hating on "blogs" and "blog pimps," don't comment here either.

Or perhaps this:

that was targeted toward just one humble FReeper whose “I hate blog pimps” commentary

If you wish to be left alone, I'd suggest not poking the bear.

Ain't you smart?

You got two answers why within the comments on this thread. Conservatives very rarely band together, be it out of the individualistic traditions, competitive nature, or inconsistent litmus tests. The slavish devotion to “muh private companies”, as those same companies aggressively work against them.

So, does it turn out that “humblegunner” is on the payroll of Facebook, Google & Twitter responsible for waging jihad on conservative “blogpimps”? ;-)

Really? I’m trying to have a meaningful conversation, and you’re simply interested in agitating? How is that helpful?

Humble, I've been in your corner on many occasions but not this time. Censorship of conservative thought is the issue. Pull the covers back over your head and stay out of this one ... please.

Brian Kolfage is going to be on the Ingraham Angle tonight ( ). I believe he’s scheduled for 10:45 EST, immediately after Eric Trump.

We anticipate several Trump family members will be watching, which is really exciting!

This could be developing into something that finally results in Facebook being held accountable for their anti-conservative activities.

There’s a lot more stuff going on behind the scenes ...
