Brian Kolfage, a triple amputee and Iraq war veteran is vowing to sue Facebook after the social media giant deleted his page without warning after he paid $300,000 for advertisements.
Kristina Wong at Breitbart.com reported:
Air Force veteran Brian Kolfage is vowing to fight Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg — all the way up to Supreme Court if necessary — if the social media giant does not reinstate his Facebook pages, which Facebook deleted without warning or explanation.
“I’m going to take the fight to Facebook. No one has ever done it. You can tell the rage I have over this whole thing,” Kolfage said in an interview with Breitbart News Daily Sirius XM host and Breitbart News Editor-in-Chief Alex Marlow on Friday.
Two weeks ago Facbeook announced the company took action on 559 Pages and 251 accounts that they said violated their “spam” and coordinated “inauthentic behavior” policies.
Facebook said most of those affected were political pages.
But several hours later, it was clear that most of the purged political pages were on the right.
Facebook purged several conservative sites just four weeks before the election and without warning.
Facebook took down Right Wing News – a conservative page with over 3 million followers.
Brian Kolfage at Right Wing News spoke out after his Facebook page was removed without warning:
I have been managing the Right Wing News Facebook page, and have been involved with the brand for many years.
And just today, Facebook took down our Facebook page, cutting off all contact we had with the millions of people who signed up to follow us, the millions of people who liked what we were sharing online.
I took over managing the page when John Hawkins decided to step aside to pursue other endeavors. John and I have a great relationship and I was honored to have the torch passed down to me. We had a coveted, verified blue check mark 3.5 Million fans, and I invested over $300,000 in ads at Facebook’s own request, nearly begging us to spend spend spend just to reach our fans … whom they kept making more difficult to reach with every passing year.
Jared Vallorani founder and CEO of Klicked Media who provides hosting and web support to several conservative websites told The Gateway Pundit that several of his clients had their Facebook pages removed in the purge. Many of the pages had hundreds of thousands of followers.
No one from Facebook has reached out to any of these Facebook page owners to discuss their concerns, their behavior or to tell them about their demise.
Doug Giles who runs the conservative website Clash Daily was also shut down on Black Thursday by Facebook.
