Facebook back to silencing people on GOP orders

A regular commenter on The Online Lunchpail who I know personally has just had 2 Facebook accounts taken away in the past 2 days because she disagreed with someone.

The first recent revocation was because she criticized the Newport school system. The second occurred this morning because she posted a message on a local political forum detailing how the Republican Party of Kentucky had blacklisted her from appearing in a medical information video because of her politics. (People who weren't qualified to appear have been hired instead because of their political connections.)

She's right: They're out for blood. It's been years since I've seen it this bad. Accordingly, the Fascism Advisory System is being "upgraded" to severe (Elmo).

I've been apprised of the situation in greater detail this afternoon.

She also says her Outlook account was apparently hacked, for it had been disabled because someone sent spam from it. But this account has been restored.
