Prager University is reporting that Facebook is now “heavily” censoring its videos on the social media platform, including the outright deletion of some posts:
BREAKING: We're being heavily censored on @Facebook.
Our last 9 posts are reaching 0 of our 3 million followers. At least two videos were deleted last night for “hate speech” including our recent video with @conservmillen.

Many, many on Twitter warned this would happen next after Alex Jones was suspended:
Good job everyone!
Blocking videos on free speech…is exactly the result America deserves.

“Alex Jones isn’t the hill to die on you dummies. There is no slippery slope.”
Our brave conservative thought leaders are gonna sit out the corporate fight until we’ve lost that part too. Principles indeed. https://t.co/3pTgpiFOEj

For those amused at Milo and Alex Jones, how do you feel about PragerU being blacklisted?
You consider yourself above these people. Your enemies don't. In fact, you're more dangerous because your "hate" is respectable.
