In a shocking Facebook maneuver just four days before the runoff election in Georgia, it closed the fundraising account of Republican candidates David Perdue and Kelly Loeffer.
“Facebook has shut down the ad account for the Georgia Battleground Fund, a joint fundraising committee for NRSC, @Perduesenate, and @kloeffler.”
“This is unacceptable with only 4 days to Election Day,” the Republican committee protested in a tweet on Jan. 1.
Big Tech is at it again.

In addition to blocking the account, Facebook placed a sign that discredited the campaign, suggesting that their page was a risk of deception or scamming.
“We don’t allow ads that promote products, services, schemes or offers using deceptive or misleading practices, including those meant to mislead or scam people out of money or personal information,” Facebook added.
The account was later reinstated, citing a ‘mistake’ as the cause of the closure, according to the Daily Caller.
Big Tech has seriously interfered with the electoral process, blocking numerous conservative user accounts and selectively censoring news exposing possible crimes committed by their candidates.
One of the strongest campaigns was the one that tried to cover up evidence of corruption in the family of Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden, published by the New York Post on Oct. 15, 2019.
Although Biden’s negotiations with foreign governments had been the subject of corruption rumors for years, this time thousands of emails, photos, and videos were presented making it evident.
Twitter immediately canceled the New York Post’s account and, together with Facebook, censored all references to the case made by users of their networks, in an attempt to cover up the facts.
In addition, they have abundantly financed the Democratic Party and support the Marxist movements Black Lives Matter (BLM) and antifa.
Navy intelligence veteran and journalist Jack Posobiec of One America News Network questioned whether the Senate would override the veto of President Trump, who tried to remove the controversial Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act.
This law was passed in 1996 to help the fledgling internet industry prosper by preventing such companies from being treated as publishers, as long as they acted in “good faith.”
However, the big social networks hide behind Article 230 to close accounts and eliminate messages that violate their arbitrary service rules. This is why they are accused of abusing and controlling the freedom of expression of users with little external monitoring and regulation.
