“The admin of the Memelord For Hire MKIII Facebook meme page received multiple 30-day suspensions in a censorship blitz kicked off by a meme that supported InfoWars,” reports NationalFile.com.
The page’s admin, Chad Dallas, provided screenshots to National File showing Facebook flagged the satirical meme featuring a group of black teens throwing gang signs, with text reading, “Fuck CNN. All my homies watch Infowars.”

Meanwhile, Facebook users who attempted to “like” the Memelord For Hire MKIII page, followed by over 50,000, were presented messages warning them to review the page’s content prior to subscribing.
“The most irritating part of this whole debacle is Facebook could easily just delete my page for having the wrong opinions and be done with it,” Dallas told National File.
“They haven’t, because they’re cowards, and they need a reason to justify banning a harmless satire page that criticizes all sides of the political spectrum. Hence the trumped-up ‘Community Standards violations.’”
Just last week, Facebook suspended a page for MemeWorld.com, a new website created by Trump’s favorite meme maker Carpe Donktum.
I think this is #winning…
