    Facebook shuts down 2MB2DC page for an opinion that evidently goes against 'Facebook Community Standards'
    2MBTDC (Belinda Bee)
    Facebook has seemingly had it in for the patriot bikers group "2 Million Bikers To DC" from the beginning. Now, the social media giant has shut down the page permanently for a seemingly innocuous, but strong, opinion expressed by the group's co-founder, Belinda Bee.

    At the time Facebook shut down 2MBTDC, they had over 445,000 followers. The organization sprang up seemingly out of nowhere as a response to the failed "Million Muslim March" in Washington, D.C. on September 11, 2013. While some news reports at the time said "thousands" of bikers attended, police at the scene put the number of participants at over 800,000.

    The comment that resulted in the page being shut down is the featured photo. The discussion was spirited, but does a strong opinion really warrant the dismantling of the entire Facebook page?

    The patriot group focuses on honoring the victims of September 11, 2001 and standing for all of America's veterans. Their mission statement also says in part that they "peacefully oppose any and all who wish to fundamentally transform our country from our founding Father’s original intent."

    But the organization has used their platform to promote many other important causes, as well, particularly those ignored by the mainstream media. 2MBTDC has tackled the plight of the ranchers in the west and the dangers of radical Islam. Conservative heavy-hitters Dinesh D'Souza, Karen Vaughn and Trevor Loudon had administrative rights to the popular Facebook page.

    Belinda Bee told the Examiner that one of the "biggest challenges" with Facebook is dealing with non-specific community standards. Bee suspects that the standards are "vague on purpose" and beholden to a political agenda.

    Belinda encouraged fans to come "like" another Facebook page called "Bikers For America."

    I agree with his opinion. We are a drug first and ask questions later nation. Everyone takes a pill for something.

    Mark Zuckerberg is a globalist, open-border, hypocritical cunt.

    Faggot wants us surrounded by Syrian Rapefugees while he spends 5 million on security annually and buys every house on his street.

    Oh yeah, his wife is butt ugly too.

    We are now drugging pre-schoolers so they can settle down. What happened to the days when you set them free on the playground and let them play the energy out?

    I don't get why people complain about what is allowed/not allowed on Facebook. Zuckerberg is obviously a SJW lib fag. Instead of complaining, why not just stay off Facebook?

    I erased my Facebook years ago and don't miss it at all. Plenty of other social media platforms these days. It really serves no purpose other than see how creepy your relatives and old friends are getting over the years.

    Unless you are one of these broads that can't part with their "mommy group" on Facebook :endit:

    Plus, he employs very few minorities.

    Yeah, my parents gave me pills. They were called "sit down and shut up before I smack you" pills.

    I'm going to sound old but children should not be on these drugs. Most of us grew up with the classmate that had some type of issue and they made it through school without being medicated.

    I'm sure this has nothing to do with politics and everything to do with big pharma money that he receives in ads.
