    EXCLUSIVE… Clash Daily’s Doug Giles Speaks Out After Facebook Ban – They’re Lying About ‘Spam,’ ‘Inauthentic Accounts’


    October 13, 2018

    Facebook is falsely accusing conservative news websites of using “inauthentic accounts” and “spamming” social media users in an effort censor truth and intervene in the upcoming election, warns Doug Giles, founder and editor of the Clash Daily which was shut down by Facebook.


    “It has little to do with fake news that Clash Daily and others are spawning. It has everything to do with the Trump wave that is completely crushing the media and crushing the left,” Giles explained in an interview with the Gateway Pundit. “They want to suppress freedom of expression, so they have these ambiguous rules, these vagaries so they can avoid lawsuits that are coming at them, and just do away with us like we don’t exist and we don’t matter.


    As Gateway Pundit reported, Facebook shut down over 800 accounts and pages accused of spreading “misinformation,” predominantly conservative pages with millions of followers, in an effort to fight “fake news” before the November midterm elections.


    The social media giant announced Thursday that they removed 251 accounts and shut down 559 pages for breaking the sites rules against spam and “coordinated inauthentic behavior.”


    Facebook’s claim that Giles used “fake accounts” is a lie, Giles lamented.


    “I don’t care how Facebook slices it. All the little diddles, they say ‘he did this, he did this, he did this’ – I answered them like ‘no, we didn’t.’ We don’t have fake accounts,” he said. “We give our damn drivers’ licenses to you. We have got to do two party notification. We don’t spam people – prove it. If you’ve got all this evidence mounting against clashdaily.com, put your cards on the table Zuckerberg and lets let the best man win.”



    “If Facebook is really after fake news then they should turn their attention to CNN and MSNBC,”
    he continued. “We are just patriotic, freedom flag, country loving news organization that doesn’t pull any kind of punches whatsoever. We are conservative. We put that up front in our ‘about us’ tab and we let people know that we are conservative and libertarian leaning. We don’t make any bones about it. We are talking about a page that we’ve been working on for six years – it’s not the biggest page in the world but its still 2 million people and we spent six figures building it. And because they accused us of ‘spamming’ and having fake accounts and putting forth ‘fake news,’ they deemed us unworthy for their platform.”


    Leftists are un-American for not taking a stand against their leaders who are brazenly suppressing free speech, Giles argued.


    “I get not wanting to be a Republican and wear a blue jacket, red tie, khaki pants, have a square haircut, don’t drink beer, don’t have fun – just a hard line fundamentalist,” he said. “But if I were a liberal and my leaders like the ones at CNN or the other ones like Maxine Waters, Pelosi, or Elizabeth Warren or Hillary and the tech guys like Zuckerberg, YouTube, Google – if all my leaders were so fragile with their world view, that they were so delicate that they can’t stand competitive thought and a competitive voice, I would abandon it.


    “I don’t want to be in the party of the gentle little tinker pots that can’t have robust, verbal, online, sparring debates – it’s not America, it has nothing to do with this grand experiment and self-governance – its’s speech suppression.”


    Immediately after President Donald Trump’s 2016 victory, Facebook warned that they would not tolerate “misinformation” by taking point at “fake news” site’s revenue sources.

    The social media giant has long claimed to be neutral in their moderation practices, but following the launch of its fake news campaign, conservative news sites including the Gateway Pundit have been shadow banned from the Facebook news feed.


    As a result, Clash Daily’s traffic and revenue “precipitously” declined, Giles explained.


    “When Trump trounced Hillary and they didn’t get their squeaky toy in the White House, they just turned the spigot off on the conservative news portals,” he said. “We went from a weekly reach of anywhere from 8 million to 30 million people, to where it was down to half a million to a million. Most people would say ‘that is still great traffic.’ But we were crushing it, we were won of the top conservative web sites out there.”


    Leftist tech giants are threatened most by the conservative new media who immensely helped President Trump win the election, Giles argued.


    “If it weren’t guys like Jim at Gateway Pundit, the Breitbart site, Clash Daily, a whole slew of other conservative news portals, we would be very frustrated Americans. We’d all be wearing brown shirts marching behind Hillary Clinton, God forbid, in her pantsuit,” he said. “You can’t roll up in a fetal position and wet your big conservative diaper. God didn’t say, ‘everyday is going to be wonderful, and the birds are going to be chirping.’ They are the enemy, the enemy is doing enemy stuff. We’ve got to bulldoze through the turbulence, keep doing what’s right — don’t give up when times suck worse than an airplane toilet.”

    Giles plans on fighting back after getting banned from Facebook, but refuses to use the platform again.

    “We are definitely going to fight it, but I’m not fighting it to get back on,” he said. “I’ve been dealing with that manic group over at Facebook – their like ‘you can’t do that headline, you can’t do that meme, you can’t say this.’ It’s like dealing with a neurotic girlfriend that you cannot please no matter what you do , and finally she says ‘we’re finished.’ You’re like ‘hallelujah,’ grab a chug of vodka, drink it and go smoke a cigar and hang out with the brothers.


    “If they put me back on tomorrow, I wouldn’t populate their page because there is no pleasing them. They will do it again, unless there is some kind of government anti-trust regulation – Let somebody go in there and take Facebook out at the knees. Let them compete with them come on there are some billionaires that are on our side that are sitting on a stack of cash. Again, if they take out the infantry, which we are, then they are coming for the cavalry, and then they are coming for the generals. It might take a little longer, but they are coming, I guarantee it.

    Yes, I had Facebook's number more than a decade ago. Some other nice company needs to form and compete with them. The only Facebook I've read was Trump's and never signed on. The only Twitter I read is Trump's and likewise, never signed on. I like the real news on TV, the real news in newspapers articles, and other types of sources. I get a kick out of some of the Facebook things that are posted on websites and shown on the news, most Americans are funny and cute, and post adorable pics and videos of their animals and children which I enjoy very much. I like the patriotic artworks that are posted, but this can be done by any website. What Facebook does, really, anyone can do.

    This could get interesting..I wonder how many drug and human traffickers are coordinating on Facebook on a daily basis ...ANTIFA pages promoting violence are still active on Facebook. Just defies logic.

    Woman sues Facebook, claims site enabled sex trafficking

    by Reuters
    Wednesday, 3 October 2018 03:26 GMT


    The lawsuit says Facebook did not do enough to verify the user's identity

    By Dan Whitcomb
    Oct 2 (Reuters) -
    A Texas woman, claiming that she was raped, beaten and sex trafficked at the age of 15 by a pimp who posed as a Facebook "friend," has filed suit against the social network, alleging its executives knew minors were being lured into the sex trade on their platform.
    The woman, identified only as Jane Doe in court papers filed in Harris County District Court in Houston on Monday, also named as defendants the now-shuttered classified ads website Backpage.com and its founders.

    Facebook did not respond to a request by Reuters for comment.

    Attorneys for Backpage.com and the former employees named in the lawsuit as defendants also did not return calls for comment.

    According to the lawsuit, the woman was "friended" on Facebook in 2012 by a user who appeared to know several of her real-life friends. The man messaged her through Facebook, according to the lawsuit, which was seen by Reuters.

    The lawsuit alleges that at one point following an argument with her mother, the trafficker offered to console her, but after picking her up from her home he beat and raped her and took pictures that were posted on Backpage.com.

    The lawsuit says Facebook did not do enough to verify the user's identity, which the lawsuit said was false, and that Jane Doe was never warned that sex traffickers were operating on the social media network.

    The plaintiff's attorneys, David Harris and Louie Cook of the law firm Sico Hoelscher Harris LLP in Houston, did not reply to requests for comment.

    Backpage.com was shut down by authorities earlier this year after a Justice Department investigation into allegations that the website was used primarily to sell sex.

    Facebook Cleans House – Purges Several Top Conservative Pages FOUR WEEKS BEFORE ELECTION

    by Jim Hoft October 12, 2018 347

    On Thursday Facbeook announced the company took action on 559 Pages and 251 accounts that violated their “spam” and coordinated “inauthentic behavior” policies.

    Facebook said most of those affected were political pages.

    This year, we’ve enforced this policy against many Pages, Groups and accounts created to stir up political debate, including in the US, the Middle East, Russia and the UK. But the bulk of the inauthentic activity we see on Facebook is spam that’s typically motivated by money, not politics. And the people behind it are adapting their behavior as our enforcement improves.

    Facebook says the enforcement was based on violations of Facebook’s existing spam and coordinated inauthentic behavior policies, the type of content posted by all accounts impacted was not a factor.

    And now, several hours later, we are hearing that most of the purged political pages were on the right.

    Facebook purged several conservative sites just four weeks before the election and without warning.

    Facebook took down Right Wing News – a conservative page with over 3 million followers.




    Brian Kolfage at Right Wing News reported:

    I have been managing the Right Wing News Facebook page, and have been involved with the brand for many years.
    And just today, Facebook took down our Facebook page, cutting off all contact we had with the millions of people who signed up to follow us, the millions of people who liked what we were sharing online.
    I took over managing the page when John Hawkins decided to step aside to pursue other endeavors. John and I have a great relationship and I was honored to have the torch passed down to me. We had a coveted, verified blue check mark 3.5 Million fans, and I invested over $300,000 in ads at Facebook’s own request, nearly begging us to spend spend spend just to reach our fans … whom they kept making more difficult to reach with every passing year.

    Jared Vallorani
    founder and CEO of Klicked Media who provides hosting and web support to several conservative websites told The Gateway Pundit that several of his clients had their Facebook pages removed on Thursday. Many of the pages had hundreds of thousands of followers. Jared refers to yesterday as “Black Thursday.”

    No one from Facebook has reached out to any of these Facebook page owners to discuss their concerns, their behavior or to tell them about their demise.

    Doug Giles who runs the conservative website Clash Daily was shut down on Black Thursday by Facebook.
    Giles wrote this at Clash Daily after his pages — with nearly 3 million likes — were taken down yesterday.

    ClashDaily.com doesn’t trade in subtleties and deceit. We are a hard-charging, patriotic mosh-pit, that loves freedom, family and our flag and don’t mind challenging them that don’t with truth mixed with an irreverent sense of humor. Our brand of no-bullshit news reporting and op-eds have garnered us 230M page views in the last few years. If you define ‘misleading users’ as making them free thinking people versus Koolaid drinking Antifa clowns, then I guess we could be guilty.
    ClashDaily.com‘s pages are administered by a fake account? That’s a joke. Our admin peeps have to double verify to login. Facebook has our driver’s licenses. In addition, my ClashDaily.com Facebook page was ‘blue checked’ approved by Facebook as being from me and not some zit-faced, content-farming, teen from Macedonia.

    The Gateway Pundit knows of several other conservative publishers who had their pages taken down yesterday.

    So far Facebook continues to get away with this unfair and discriminatory practice.

    Jim Hoft from The Gateway Pundit spoke to Congress about Facebook and it’s continued censorship of conservative sites at a September hearing.

    Something needs to be done to stop this unfair practices.
