Facebook continues it’s purge of anti capitalist leftist pages on Friday, with the unpublishing of the ‘Respect For Plebs’ site.
The page, which had over 61K likes, was unpublished for essentially punching upwards at white people on social commentary. Facebook allows content that punches down onto disenfranchised peoples but clearly protects the most privileged. Their community standards lack true standards for what they consider problematic, but yet they make it clear that they are willing to go out of their way to defend white people and their feelings. They make no such effort with people of color and the LGBTQIA+ community. If there is no “safe space” for oppressed peoples, why is there one for white folks?
According to the creator, who wishes to remain anonymous, this isn’t the first time ‘Respect For Plebs’ has been unpublished. About 2 months ago this occurred for similar reasons. They won their last appeal and hope to do so with this one.
The past month and change has been rough for leftist pages and their admins with Dolan Trump, Crapitalism, Anarcho-Opossumism, and Marxist Memes (through they are/were transphobic) all being unpublished, or ‘Zucced’, by Facebook.
Hopefully ‘Respect For Plebs’ wins their appeal and comes back into our newsfeeds again. If not, Leftbook is sure to rally around a beloved page and help with a rebuild.
