Lara Trump, daughter-in-law of the former president, is alleging Facebook is censoring content posted on her page that features video of Donald Trump.
Trump lamented in an Instagram post, “…and just like that, we are one step closer to Orwell’s 1984. Wow.”
Lara Trump reports that Facebook is banning her from posting video of the former president of the free United States and threatening her with removal as well. Big Tech oligarchs exercising raw power to silence their political opponents is utterly terrifying to observe. pic.twitter.com/CeQTBs2lHz

So…not only is Donald Trump himself not allowed on Facebook and Instagram, we’re not even allowed to post content with his voice! Orwellian indeed!
The left is simply trying to erase Donald Trump from history. Trump is a former president for goodness sake! We, the dull peasants, are no longer allowed to even hear his voice. He’s that deplorable and dangerous in our tech overlords’ eyes.
Let’s just hope one of the alternative social media platforms really takes hold. I can’t handle being on 638 different platforms. Right now, it appears GAB is leading the way. My feeling is whatever platform Trump eventually (hopefully) joins will be the winner. Then, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and YouTube can suck it. They’ll be left in their own echo chamber and will eat their own. The censorship and the social environment they have created will end up biting them in the butt.
