Oregon Government Orders Facebook to Remove Gateway Pundit Article on Republican Ballot Scandal Facebook Complies Despite Hundreds of Confirmed Testimonies
GP ^ | 05/21/20 | Brock Simmons

Gateway Pundit readers may recall a recent story we did that shed light on hundreds, possibly thousands, of Oregon voters who mysteriously had their party changed, most from Republican to Non Affiliated, without their permission, consent or knowledge, effectively denying them the right to vote in their party’s primary and disqualifying them from being Precinct Committee Persons.

Today we found out the State Of Oregon is now working with Facebook to delete all mentions of this story.

Earlier today Facebook gave The Gateway Pundit a strike for posting this story even though we had 32 statements from different Oregon Republican voters to back up our report. 

Despite hundreds of people coming forward with similar stories about how they received a non affiliated ballot, and despite many screenshots from the Facebook group mentioned in our article, Facebook’s infamous “fact checkers” deemed the story as “misinformation” at the request of the Oregon state government.

This is what people see when a link to the article comes up in their feed:

Lead Stories flagged The Gateway Pundit article and issued the strike as a “hoax alert.”

Lead stories author Alexis Tereszcuk did not contact any of the 30+ Oregon voters who said their party affiliation was changed.

Instead Alexis spoke with the Oregon Secretary of State who denied there was any malfeasance.

She mentions that in her article at Lead Stories:

If a private company censors speech on its platform at the bidding of a government authority, would *that* be a violation of the First Amendment?

All these tech companies act as Publishers and their exemption should be revoked immediately, or the Feds should just BAN their Domain from the USA for being UnAmerican and Discriminatory

Exactly. There is no way this is not deemed a STate Action. Any of the old arguments that Facebook can do anything it wants as a private company are completely and legally irrelevant in this scenario.

We need to get rid of juries and prosecutors and just ask criminals if they did it or not. /s

Actually that would be fascism.

Why the hell can’t some tech-savvy entrepreneur who is conservative or at least isn’t a far, far leftist create an alternative to Facebook—one that is not only fair-minded but safe from hackers?

Facebook has such a Bad Rap right now. My kids say that No One under, at least 30, use it. My friend only use Messenger to get their infonto friends, and post only highly-photoshpped pics and virtue signaling on the site itself

I lived in Portland, from 1994 to 2000, where they went from actual voting locations, and chads, to everything voted on by mail. You received 2 booklets, one an explanation of the whats, the whoms, and the whys, and the other booklet, the ballot, the instructions, and the envelope, post paid.
Yup, SNAFU!!
