Censorship Alive and Well at Facebook: Law Enforcement/Veteran-Based ‘Tactical Sh*t’ Shut Down

Like the post? Why not make it Facebook official. ⇊

On August 7, Facebook shut down ‘Tactical Sh*t’–an online community for military, veterans, law enforcement, and supporters of the Second Amendment.


 

General Michael Flynn defense fund Fellow patriots, please listen to this short, inspiring message from General Flynn. General Michael Flynn exemplifies patriotism, courage, and love of God and country - despite some of his own countrymen relentlessly attacking him. Donations for his defense are greatly appreciated. If you can only give $5.00, please do so - every little bit helps. Thank you so much, and God bless. Letter from General Flynn. 


Tactical Sh*t took years to build and had recently reached the point of attracting approximately 59 million viewers a month.

On August 8 Breitbart News spoke with TJ Kirgin–a former law enforcement officer and the owner of Tactical Sh*t. He said, “Facebook has not given a reason for pulling our page.” He said his best guess is that the page was pulled over “sweeping algorithm changes” and he pointed out that he has heard of other groups that  were shut down, “even air soft groups.”

Kirgin said, “We’ve had particular posts removed in the past–posts that were critical of Sharia law or posts containing photos of women holding guns that Facebook flagged for sexual content. But in all these instances the post was removed yet the page remained.” He believes the fact that the page was suddenly pulled indicates “these removals were algorithmic and the posts were removed in an automated way.”

Tactical Sh*t  also has an online gear business based in St. Louis, but Kirgin stressed that Facebook is not used to sell guns. He said the only things sold on Facebook are components, which do not violate policy.

Kirgin stressed that his company employs “14 employees, mostly veterans, and the loss of the page could mean the loss of income they can’t afford to go without.” He has launched a backup page at Tactical SHT.

In October 2015 Breitbart News reported that Facebook shut down author Brandon Maddox’s account because of the use of the word “firearms.”

Maddox was selling a book that provides instructions for getting a Federal Firearms License (FFL), a phrase that includes the word “firearms.” His post was not an advertisement for firearms sales, but his account was shut down under Facebook’s policy against gun sales.

What you can do to help:

 

It is vitally important that we all take the time to like and share articles regardless of what site you are on. Conservative sites (like this one) cannot count on traffic from Facebook etc. any more. Subscribing is also important; this bypasses the censorship. The more that we can get the word out the better – and in order to continue bringing you content like this – we ALL need traffic in order to survive. Sign up for desktop notifications (the red bell symbol). Running a website is not only expensive, it also takes a lot of time and effort.

No one likes ads, but very few people will donate, hence the reason most of us have ads.

Besides donating and clicking on ads, you can make a purchase from our store and buy my book.
