Facebook censored the post of an angel mom for alleged “hate speech.”
Mary Ann Mendoza’s son, Brandon, a 32-year-old police officer, died after being hit by an illegal immigrant who was driving drunk in May 2014 in Arizona.
Since then, Mendoza has carried the banner for the cause of “angel families” and leads a Facebook platform that supports the families and friends of people killed by illegal aliens, according to Breitbart.
The posts of angel families seek to raise awareness of the danger posed to American communities by the massive influx of illegal aliens.
“We are bringing Victims and Victims Families to the American public to let them tell their devastating stories in hopes of raising awareness to the magnitude of illegal alien crime in our country,” the Facebook page says.
The “angel mom” explained to Breitbart that the social network removed some of her publications and then temporarily blocked her from posting on the platform.
In addition, Facebook removed the donation button from the official angel families page claiming she had “violated their community guidelines more than once.”
Mendoza complained that open border defense organizations like United We Dream, funded by speculator George Soros, can get donations through Facebook despite their constant attacks on Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents for enforcing national immigration law.
But this is not the first time they have tried to silence this mother. In July Twitter suspended Mendoza’s account.
The social network told her that she should delete a series of tweets about crimes committed by illegal aliens and the impact of sanctuary city policies on U.S. citizens for going against the platform’s “standards on hate speech,” the mother told Breitbart.
“I’m disgusted and disappointed that Twitter is trying to silence me,” Mendoza told Breitbart at the time.
“I had my world ripped out from under me the day my son was killed by a repeat illegal alien criminal. I am the ‘other’ side of this crisis and the end result of open borders and the careless release of illegal aliens at our borders because of time restraints.”
Mendoza said that despite the suspension of Twitter, her voice will not be silenced.
Censorship in social networks
Boston Herald journalist Adriana Cohen expressed concern about what she sees as censorship of conservative ideas by big technology in her July 21 column.
“The social media platform is destroying free speech as we know it by continuously silencing any and all expression—especially political—that strays from its strict liberal orthodoxy,” Cohen said.
“By banning Angel Mom, Twitter demonstrates the stark truth that the Silicon Valley elites running these powerful digital monopolies care more about protecting criminals who violate U.S. Customs and Immigration laws than protecting American’s right to free speech,” she added.
President Donald Trump himself wanted to give Mendoza a voice through a post on his Twitter profile.
“I will help Angel Mom (and great woman) Mary Ann Mendoza with Twitter. I know Mary Ann from the beginning, and she should never be silenced. She is a winner who has lost so much, her child,” the president said.
“Twitter, if you’re watching, please do what you have to do,” the president added.
