MAGA Purge: Facebook removes #WalkAway movement page
Brandon Straka, founder of the #WalkAway movement, announced on Twitter Friday afternoon that Facebook has removed his entire page.
Straka said his #WalkAway Campaign page, along with all the testimonial videos from thousands of followers, is GONE, as of Friday morning.
Additionally, every person associated with his page, such as employees and volunteers listed as admins, have all been banned from Facebook as well.
In an interview with The Epoch Times, Straka said his page had 508,000 followers.
“We’ve contacted our lawyers and we’re going to see what we can do to try to get some action against Facebook for doing this to us,” he said.
Straka first posted on Thursday that Twitter was purging his followers. “Massive Twitter purges seem to be happening. I’ve lost now 10,000 followers since last night. PLEASE subscribe to my email list right now while you can. Text STRAKA to 22828 to subscribe. Please retweet.”
Then Friday morning, Facebook struck. Straka tweeted, “FACEBOOK has removed the #WalkAway Campaign and has BANNED ME and EVERY MEMBER of my team!!!”
Outraged, Straka added in another tweet, “I have a dozen paid employees. I have dozens of volunteers. ALL BANNED at the same time today. Absolute mayhem!! Is this the unity and healing of Joe Biden’s America??? This is horrifying.”
Straka tagged Sen. Ted Cruz in another post, writing, “@SenTedCruz @tedcruz I need your help. PLEASE CONTACT ME. The entire #WalkAway movement & every employee & volunteer from my organization was BANNED today from Facebook.”
In another post, he tagged Cruz, along with a number of other conservative politicians, media and patriots, including President Trump.
