One of America’s oldest newspapers can’t catch a break from Big Tech censorship.
Facebook blocked the link to a New York Post story that criticized Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Khan-Cullors for purchasing her fourth home. The house reportedly expanded her real estate holdings to $3.2 million.
It appears as though her new home is as grandiose as one would expect a fourth home to be. “The self-described Marxist last month purchased a $1.4 million home on a secluded road a short drive from Malibu in Los Angeles, according to a report,” the Post noted.
The Post later described the other three homes that Khan-Cullors and her spouse have reportedly purchased in her “real estate binge,” including two other homes in California and one in Georgia. The Post also included several photos of each home. The photos did not appear to include any identifying information, such as a house number or street name.
Facebook was apparently unwilling to allow users to call out a “self-described Marxist” on her hypocrisy of owning four homes and blocked the link to the Post’s story entirely.
Upon trying to post the article, users were met with an angry red message that said, “Your post couldn’t be shared, because this link goes against our Community Standards.”
A Facebook spokesperson told MRC Free Speech America “This content was removed for violating our privacy and personal information policy,” Facebook’s statement continued: “The articles shared multiple details which could identify the residence of one of the BLM founders, in violation of her privacy rights.”
The Post was founded by Founding Father Alexander Hamilton in 1801, according to the outlet. The Post, not created to be “a vanity project” for its founder, was frequently used by the founder to “wage vicious political battles.”
The newspaper was also censored in October of 2020, after it published an article that claimed to expose alleged corrupt dealings of then-candidate Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden in Ukraine. Twitter blocked the link completely, and locked the Post’s account for 17 days. Facebook deprioritized the story in its algorithm. A study from the Media Research Center revealed that 36 percent of Biden voters were not aware of this story before the election. “Thirteen percent of these voters (or 4.6% of Biden’s total vote) say that had they known these facts, they would not have voted for the former Vice President,” the MRC study noted.
