If people aren’t paying attention I guess they would think that everything is OK with being on Facebook, but I believe there is a catch.

I remember commenting about issues that needed to be addressed. Now, when I want to respond, I have to click on the “F” for Facebook to be heard. The only problem with that is, Facebook can stop you from being heard simply by saying you are “unsafe” to the public. That was the case with two women named Diamond and Silk who got that response as to why their Facebook posts were restricted. The women have been on Fox News many times giving their support for our president.

Whether anyone agrees with me or not, you are being manipulated and denied your right to free speech if you are censored. Putting that into perspective, if you don’t have a Facebook account, how can you leave a response about an article you want to address?

We are being made to think the way the censors want us to think and losing our right to free speech.
