Facebook deplatforms BIC

The independent comic industry news and review site Bounding Into Comics has been deplatformed:
Facebook has censored Bounding Into Comics and completely removed our 250k+ strong Facebook page.

Facebook did not provide any warnings and didn’t really explain why the page was removed.

The page was removed on Monday around 10:20 a.m. ET shortly after we published the new Spider-Man: Far From Home trailer. I was logged out of my personal Facebook account, which I use to manage the Bounding Into Comics Facebook page. Upon logging back in, I received a number of alerts from Facebook indicating they had removed ‘Content’ which ultimately meant they had removed not just content posts but all traces of the Bounding Into Comics Facebook page.

The first alert indicated Bounding Into Comics was being removed because it violated “the Facebook Statement of Rights and Responsibilities.” The next alert read, “Our policies prohibit posting content that infringes or violates someone else’s rights or otherwise violates the law.”

The alerts continued, “If you continue to post content that infringes or violates other’s rights or otherwise violates the law, you could be temporarily blocked from posting content on Facebook, or even have your account permanently banned.”

The next alert then directed us to review Facebook’s Intellectual Property Policies. It read, “If you have questions regarding the removal of content please visit the Help Center. To help keep your account in good standing, remove any other content you’ve posted to Facebook that may infringe or otherwise violate another’s rights. To learn more about intellectual property, visit the Help Center.”

Two of the messages then repeated. The next alert read, “Our policies prohibit posting content that infringes or violates someone else’s rights or otherwise violates the law.”

The final message read, “If you continue to post content that infringes or violates others’ rights or otherwise violates the law, you could be temporarily blocked from posting content on Facebook, or even have your account permanently disabled.”

Facebook did not provide us with any actual concrete examples of the alleged violation. In fact, the reason why we are writing this article today, instead of yesterday, is because we attempted to reach out to Facebook believing the removal of the page was inadvertent. However, Facebook has not responded to any of our Help Center inquiries. They stopped responding in an email thread with a Publisher & Media Support team representative once the page was identified.
This is why it is absolutely vital to stop relying upon these enemy platforms. What is the point of building anything that relies upon them as a foundation when they can pull it out from under you like Lucy yanking the football away from Charlie Brown at any time?

The question is, now that the banks are jumping in to deplatforming: https://www.infowars.com/forget-facebook-they-want-to-revoke-your-access-to-banking/

Most of us don't have the ability to set up another financial service, and its virtually impossible to do business in the west without a bank account. I'm starting to wonder if intentional Christian communities are going to be the only viable option for right-wing/Christian survival going forward, at least in the west.

Wait till Siri, and Alexa, start banning people. There will be no one left on-line. Mission accomplished?

II Corinthians 2:
14 Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?
15 And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel?
16 And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.
17 Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you,
18 And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.

That seems to be the most feasible answer, except unlike the Amish, the Christian communities won't be left alone and will be attacked relentlessly in every way possible by the outsiders.

I do hope that some financial institutions will spring up, perhaps like Medi-Share, which is a Christian insurance company, though not technically insurance, they share medical costs with among their members.

Blogger Nate73 May 08, 2019 2:02 PM  

Not that it matters but I wonder how far up the food chain these orders come down from. I assume the Zuck himself doesn't personally order these pages to be nuked, so it must be the sjws managers.

Blogger Noah B. May 08, 2019 2:37 PM  

@3 Look at it this way - the banks are forcing Americans into a position from which there is no retreat.

We'll need more than just banks. Credit cards, investment brokers, you name it, we'll need it. Unless things change Christians will be deplatformed from all of them.

Facebook will have removed everyone to the right of Jeb Bush by the time the election gets rolling next year, except for a handful of controlled opposition types.

Zuckerberg sank a big pile of his own money into an open-borders PAC, and then watched his own company be used to spread meme magic that helped Trump get elected. Why would he let that happen again?

Yes, I think it is.

A few months back, I joined a Serbian Orthodox parish. I've never seen a more welcoming, friendly parish before, and have already become very involved with their community. Many parish members are, shall we say, "woke" on what time we are living in, who Christ's main enemy is, and have a pretty good idea about what's coming...and are preparing accordingly.

For most of my life I've been more of a "lone wolf" type of person...but after the last few months, I would gladly fight and die for these people and our Church.

@1 (WU) Not simply a handful of sycophants. This is total war. It’s a matter of reality catching up to intentions.

It does not matter that they are a private company, they are waging war. So replace them with another. Have government nationalize, confiscate. Throw the bums in jail, whatever. These people are deplatforming, they are shutting down access to unrelated banking processes (#10 (SP)), publicly scorning, publicly attacking with physical violence, labeling "you" and the founding of the nation/civilization as white supremacists with the hopes of a Nuremburg Trial environment, Social Credit Score AI, and they’d throw your ass in a gulag or a line for the guillotine. Continued, the days of international alternatives, considering the use/misuse of Interpol and also of criminal/terrorist/extremist designations (Michael Savage), are limited. For now, there are important tools for contending with the current state of things, but never lose sight of their final objective, which is always death. It’s a matter of reality catching up to intentions.

Facebook is already over the hill. YOung people who know their parents are on it have no interest joining.

And blocking comic book pages (WTF?!?) probably isn't helping them with the young crowd.

Come back in a decade and FB will be for lefty political parties and grannies coming a little late to the party.

They thought they had the platform so they co-opted it for control. But they forgot that the platform is not required reading.

Why do you keep asking the same question? Are you hoping Vox will give you a different answer?

To state the obvious, Vox is smarter than you, and he has the capability and will to plan around de-platforming attacks.

Exactly what is Vox supposed to do about it? I mean, why are you asking him? He's a writer and a publisher, not a banker. And it's not his job to create some sort of master battle plan which would be a vulnerability in itself.

One of the things I hate about the right, including myself, is a tendency to see someone doing something, even a lot of things, and then to simply stand on the sidelines and cheer/question/whine. No, they are out there fighting all by themselves. We need to go out and help them.

I can't set up a provider, but I do plan on living with and working with other Christians to create a defensible and healthy community, if I can. First getting out of California, though.

Can churches be the ground zero of these things? You don't need cards, you need credit availability. Investing in church members, etc.

Is that possible or is the church organization a bad place to launch such a thing?

Let Facebook die of death by SJW. They'll turn it in on themselves, just the way the most common victims of communism was always other communists who failed to keep up with the narrative.

Facebook is a farce and a joke. But I never fault those for going there, I pity to understand them as its family to boomers to people I like to read in business on facebook for pictures to selling items. I regard FB to big social as evil as its a enemies haven of MPAI.

If I had a choice I'd opt for social galactic as a supreme replacement of epic multitudes because the Lord is blessing it and its super cool.

I have no idea why anyone is worried. I've been assured by AOC and Beto that we only have 10 years left before global warming kills us all.

Good grief.
I don't mean to come across as cruel, but that's Boomer levels of reality denying.
Those people want to watch you, your elderly parents/grandparents, spouse, and small children subjected to horrific torturous pain until you all are just a lifeless crumpled heap.

It doesn't matter what you try, they will do their best to infiltrate and destroy whatever you do. You have to remember, this is actually a spiritual war and the SJWs are canon fodder for the minions of Satan. "For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. Ephesians 6:12.

While all new platform efforts are important, the real battle is for revival and for the hearts and souls of those who know not Christ and without that, anything we do is doomed to eventual failure and is a losing battle. The most effective warriors in this fight are those who spend time on their knees in intercession, undergirding those out fighting the in the world. That is why if you are not diligently praying for Voxday, his family, and all those who are working with him to stem the tide, you need to be. "The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much." James 5:16.

I admit to failing that need, but no more.
