Meta (Facebook) doesn't like to apply outright blocks on links. Instead, they allow links to be posted, but algorithmically limit their reach in a way which is invisible to most users.
I want to be the clearest I can be: for all their flaws, Facebook's censorship does not typically extend to outright link blocks.
There is only one political website for which Facebook outright blocks links being shared (to my knowledge), across all of its social and messaging platforms… including private conversations with friends on Messenger or WhatsApp.
And that blocked site, is patriots.win.
Facebook does NOT block:
- Truth Social
Last year, we tried to overturn the block. We went through several layers of Facebook Support, but we reached the highest level, and they all refused to overturn it.
We looked at the legal route last year, too. We ultimately wanted the ban overturned, but we were at least looking to learn why we were blocked and what steps we could take to be within their rules.
The response was, again, that we would not be unblocked, and that there will be no further information.
In fact, here's the exact response from Facebook’s legal representatives:
My firm represents Meta Platforms, Inc (“Meta”). […] We confirm that the Patriots.Win domain has been banned for violation of Facebook policies and will not be restored. We appreciate your understanding, as this decision is final.
So, what's going on here?
It's not about the .win TLD.
There are plenty of .win domains which aren't blocked, and there's also sites with similarly uncommon TLDs like 8kun(.)top which aren't blocked.
It's not about offensive content.
We certainly aren't the most lenient site on the above list. We aren't even a free speech site; it's literally not possible to be a forum exclusively for MAGA/Trump supporters, and also a free speech site.
Further, the allegation against us when you attempt to send a patriots.win link on a Meta Platform is, "Posts that look like spam according to our Community Guidelines are blocked".
We're at a dead end as far as the Facebook unblock is concerned.
They have stated time and time again that we're blocked for unknown reasons and there's no recourse, but I thought that during this era of social media unbans, it was the right time to bring this issue back up - and ask, why does Facebook only outright block us?
Because they're faggots.
Leave Facebook. Problem solved.
^ This. Who gives a flying fuck who they ban?
The Twitter files revealed that the far left communists and trannies who work at social media had been retroactively applying outright bands and block filters on a huge number of things purely because those things were damaging to the Democrat party
The Twitter files completely revealed this as an absolute fact. But there were a huge number of accounts keywords links etc that had been blocked on Twitter purely because the far left communists that work there didn't want it to influence people to voting against Democrats
Now if you believe that the things that the Twitter files revealed only existed on Twitter and that no other social media network was doing anything of the sort you're a fool
I guarantee you 110% that Facebook was doing the same things and that extends to blocking certainly links shadow banning certain profiles and using the algorithms to boost Democrat narratives and silence Republican narratives
I mean have you ever noticed how hard it is to get Republican content to go viral on Facebook anymore? Meanwhile the most disingenuous and false left-wing memes are seen by millions and you see them in your feet all the time even if you don't follow the page
The far left Berkeley graduate communists and trannies who work social media are using social media in a corrupt way to push their agenda
Well, Zuckerberg helped to steal the 2020 election, so, yeah
Hopefully meta drops dead quickly. It already lost billions. Fuck zukerberg Maybe someone with a terminal disease will take him with them.
Its already dead, vrchat does what meta does and more + it's free
Isn't that the one full of Furries, Pizza and Fish Sticks?
The fact that Facebook only bans PDW is evidence that the FBI is extremely focused on this site.
It's not so much Republican vs Democrat (don't get me wrong, that plays a part) as it is MAGA vs Establishment.
"Every breath you take
Every move you make
I'll be watching you"
-the federal agent on your fire escape watching you make memes about him
So THAT's why I'm always finding cum and Twinkie wrappers on the fire escape!
Currently engaged in a fight with GOPe types after having won a major engagement. You're not wrong.
Apple texting via messages blocks this URL too
Establishment is SWAMP. Establishment is very 60's.
"The Twitter files revealed that the far left communists and trannies who work at social media had been retroactively applying outright bands and block filters on a huge number of things purely because those things were damaging to the Democrat party"
...and let's be fair - 80% of those commies and trannies got kicked to the curb in layoffs. Meta/Facebook will have laid off 25,000 employees by June or so, with promises to lay off even more. Google recently laid motherfuckers off - for the first time in its entire history. Shitloads of other ESG-spewing corps are furiously dumping every woke faggot who can't code in an effort to save their balance sheets. Only holdouts like Blackrock ( tell me BR isn't a back-funded psyop, I dare you! ) still cling to that bullshit, and they're losing customers hard and fast.
Shit, even Warren Buffet's outfit, Berkshire-Hathaway, laid off 13,500 employees recently.
Woke is dying, because it can't pay the bills. LinkedIn is crammed full every day with more and more mofos throwing that "open to work" flag, bemoaning how they got laid off... well, the codemonkeys and hardware jockeys aren't - they're too busy getting flirted with insanely hard by recruiters... ask me how I know.
Anyrate, Facebook is definitely dying, with various other Meta sub-properties dying off anyway, so...
And wait until the economy REALLY catches up with the death of cheap money. Many corps exist in their current form ONLY because they can borrow forever. As they grapple with the problem of ACTUAL profitability, who will have time for activist bullshit?
The federal gummint resembles this comment.
Makes memes - still can share. Maybe put a small "patriots.win"
Yes, if the visual link is made into the meme, so that the viewer can go type it in, that can bypass the filters. Also, Another way amd the best way to bypass the filters is use a like that will reroute the user to patriots.win ...
if you need an example, if you type in illuminati backwards and add a .com it will reroute you to the NSA website. Sombody did it as a joke, but it works is my point.
All you need is some skilled madd lad moderator here at patriots.win to make a reroute link and call it whatever they want. That links to patriots.win, bodda bing bodda boom
Like www.antifa.com leading to the White House website!
Facebook resolves the final destinations. QR codes are great, facebook does not resolve QR codes but they will analyze an image, do recognition on it, look for nudity or gore, then rank the image based on those value and the social credit score of the poster
Well then what about a new site that just mirrors all the content here.
What Facebook/IG did was far worse as they have access to the nations children. Entire engineering teams were built designed to manipulate them. We can all imagine the type of content and psychological effect they hoped to achieve.
So-called smart phones also need to be discussed.
Facebook is a data mining operation for the CCP. Starve that beast.
They seem to tell feds who you know and how. 3 levels of connections at least. It's crazy how much data we give them for free when we use those social medias.
They're working together.
In my book, this isn't a problem to be solved.
It's a BADGE OF fucking HONOR.
Or you can bend over for facebook and enrich them with your clicks and your support. And effectively pay your enemy to assfuck you.
Seems tho we're on the same side, we have wildly different points of view on this topic.
We also don't want more faggot brigaders here turning this into a shill site, just watch how many downvotes I get.
The only reason they unbanned Trump is because he's good for business.
Only those who possess a pens and enjoy suckling a penis have logged into facebook for any reason post 2017.
Only low IQ sheep remain on fb, ig, tt etc...
We should be blocking incoming links ($HTTP_REFERER) from communist brainwashing platforms like Fedbook.
I set facebook and twitter to direct to 127.0.0.1 in my /etc/hosts file. Haven't found a solution for mobile yet.
Same thing on Android. Edit your hosts file, or point it to a blackhole DNS server. I don't know about iFruit.
Sadly, there are a lot of good conservative types on facebook. Just like many still watch FNC.
I disable referrer headers, so should you.
But most normies don't.
The whole point is a "fuck you" to Facebook.
We don't want scraps from their table. We want them dead.
And we want the Internet to be a decentralized free market again.
The internet is not going back to decentralized. It's too corpo at every level now. We need to build a new one, so we can have freedom of communication including normies, again, for a while.
The word "Internet" just refers to all inter-connected telecommunications networks.
It doesn't have to be any specific transmission, hardware, or software technology.
So the concept of a "new Internet" is like a "new Universe" - a semantic paradox.
Old technologies (dial-up, Fidonet, Usenet, Telnet, ANSI terminals, packet radio, Gopher, etc) are still a part of the Internet, wherever people choose to use them - they're just no longer dominant.
We need to evolve the Internet towards protocols and applications that cannot be centrally controlled, censored, or destroyed. And it doesn't really require huge technological breakthroughs, just people running their own servers... (With P2P fallback like IPFS.)
IPFS is good tech. But at some point there is federal control at the ISP level and any popular anonymizing / federated protocol will be compromised or disabled. It's why we need to also own the hardware layer. And that's what I mean when I say a new internet. You're right about the technical descriptions, but I think you understood what concept and combination of tech I was referring to. In 2002 I was installing TICTU equipment in decent sized data centers in New York and chiraq, the introspection capabilities they have now are insane, they're only going to get better at it.
Kinda like Meta is doing to their employees, right? They're being forced to leave.
I regret ever making one, even if i was only on it for a week. In a moment of weakness i let a girl convince me to make one, when she celebrated marx's birthday i called her a filthy communist, blocked her, and closed my account all in the same day
So is every single person here who goes on Facebook. I don't care what your excuse is. Yeah yeah, you use it to keep in touch with family, yeah yeah, you use it so you can learn what's going on in your neighborhood...
Like there's no other way of doing those things.
Just admit it, if you use it, you're a fag.
I extricated myself from Facebook in 2016 and never looked back. It's the most toxic, horrible place on the internet. It was extremely freeing and really helped my mental state to leave it behind.
I post our memes exclusively. That's it, I shit up the place and don't flush
I use it only for Facebook Marketplace, probably 8 to 10 times per year, does that make me a Faggot? Or just a quasi-faggot? Or am I bordering on the line of faggotry, but not an official Faggot? Serious ask!
Switch to something else like Craigslist (even though the owner is a cuck the site itself is nowhere as dangerous to the country overall as Facebook) or OfferUp. Don’t support the big enemy.
Perhaps just fag-curious? /s
Ask Omar the
Bridge BuilderCock Sucker
"you suck one little cock..."
This. I have been off Facebook for so long but the marketplace is bigger than offer up and craigslist. I have used a web link to search classifieds for things I am looking for in other places and they have everything. Still don't have it tho
Your Mother enjoys having sexual relations with black men for crack cocaine.💥💥💥💥💥💥💥💥💥💥💥💥💥💥💥💥💥💥💥💥💥💥💥💥💥💥💥
That sounds like faggot talk to me
Your Mother's breath smells like black men penis and cocaine.
The worst faggots. Believe me.
The kind that will never be a real woman
And we’re fucking based.
Keep up the great work, u/doggos and crew!
Because of all the sites out there, this one poses the biggest threat.
Trump’s official pages are limited by his ability to tweet and staff. Here, however, gives an unlimited amount of user-vetted content.
...and lots of unvetted content.
All content is unvetted on social media sites and forums.
We moderate more than Gab or 8kun or 4chan, because we have a topic: MAGA/Trump.
Thank you for your service
hes not going to suck your corona...
back it was corona and not covid. But heck stick with the name. But to all the Libs, suck it.
Appreciate all you do. Have you had time to be around lately? It's unfortunately morphing from MAGA/Trump into GOP/McCarthy.
In your opinion what is the reason that Meta Bans PDW?
Shills have convinced pedes to repeat violent threats and racist memes. Duh.
Posters here have made it super easy for them. Posting hyper-violent threats has become a reflex for half the posters here.
Do truth posts embed anywhere? I had taken a look a while ago and they weren't server side rendering the metadata. Maybe that's changed now.
Right, but does any site allow you to post an embedded truth link? I don't think so, will set a reminder to check it out this week. I work for a free speech social media company and am responsible for Metadata fetching code.
That shit mostly stays in New, along with most of the handshake posts.
Mods may sticky garbage from time to time, but those get unstickied fast.
Fixed it for you.
Over the target.
Real Answer: There's too much evidence posted here (even years later) about our compromised/fraudulent elections.
Of all the platforms, this place is where I see the REAL evidence of election crimes and fraud get up to the top of comment chains the most often.
Anything that shines a light on the broken elections will be blocked/banned because it's the only thing that really matters. You can complain about any other issue all day on other platforms, but as long as our elections are on their terms they won't care because we can't effect change.
The GOPes here where I live are going nuts because the MAGA / America First types won control of the county parties in several key counties. A key aspect of those wins was lots of new people in the process because they saw what happened in 2020 and stepped up. There's a massive new election integrity constituency out there.
This gives me a warm fuzzy feeling.
Same happening in my area.
I know if I personally hear a politician mention the election fraud and crimes they get my vote and I go out of my way to mention them to others as who I'm voting for.
If the country truly went majority socialist/warmonger society that would be one thing.....but it hasn't. They just steal elections and weaponize media/tech to support the theft.
You know. We all know.
⭐️ TRUMP WON ⭐️
and you know it!
im honestly tired of winning so much all these years, literally nothing goes wrong on the trump train
I’m sorry, your line was: the fake news will never show it 🎶
We’re pissing off the right people. Good work, gents.
OK that's what it is. It's the transphobia
And possibly the election fraud stuff. There's that on 4chan but it's more shitposting memes there instead of facts and figures.
Oh it could be the vaccine stuff
So it's A) Anti-pharam, B) transphobia, and C) Election fraud. The trifecta of bannables.
You're right that greatawakening.win is blocked too.
I neglected to mention it, because it is in our network.
Truly, though, it's hard to find any sites that aren't in our network which are blocked.
Facebook just doesn't outright block links often.
You knew this before you posted this "only one" title....
But, that's OK, we don't mind, we're the PW N-word, anyway. We see ourselves as the "Q-allowed" PW, anyway, so, carry on. :)
You’re the window-licking, lobotomised retards who poison the well for everyone through extreme antagonism. The ‘Tragedy of the Commons’ writ large.
You’re why we can’t have nice things.
Which begs the question:
Which federal agency, or political campaign official, requested the ban? And where is the e-mail confirming it?
Oh…so we aren’t the “only one.”
Facebook sucks though why do we even care?
dailystormer ? I don't have zuckbook, can't check.
Not that I want us to be tied to that site, I just know it's widely banned.
Spezz: Dead domain name I'll bb bby.
Really? Because you seem to have a history of posting it.
So is it banned on fbook or not?
First I've heard of it. Why don't you want patriots.win to be associated with it? All the links u/TrancePhreak showed you posted don't seem bad to me.
Fuck off, Satan.
Optics or something idk.
Go post it yourself, stormfag.
So.. just patriots?
Did you forget where you are, product cumsoomer?
anti-pharma seems to be the prevailing one that will get anybody canceled even Project Veritas.
Criticize big pharma and you'll get a visit from the FBI. This fucking timeline...
Good point. They also hate Anti-vax people.
I'm not phobic of faggots who dress up as women and cut their dicks off, I just want a woodchipper nearby.
Stop using their made up terms!
You mean anti-pedophile, anti-child-rape grooming, opposed to the normalization and societal acceptance of sexual dysphoria and body dismorphic disorder as a way of life? Is that what you're calling "transphobia"?
Because someone well placed at Fakebook came onto TheDonald once upon a time and got all butthurt.
If they wont explain WHY there's no other way to explain it.
This is a Vendetta no two ways about it.
Reminds me of the Spanish Communists digging up nuns
Because we are the biggest threat to their narrative...and we'll make them cry
...and then make memes of them crying 🤣
They hate us cause they anus
Lawsuit? Would be good publicity for this site.
I think it's only a matter of time until we learn that governmental agencies were telling Facebook to ban users and suppress stories. Wouldn't be a big surprise if we eventually learn that it was some alphabet agency who told Facebook to ban this site.
I have no doubts that it was a entity outside of Facebook. I would like to learn who.
It’s David Brock. Media Matters. The AgainstHateSubreddits crowd. They are well funded and staffed by legit attorneys.
Funny thing about David Brock,
I haven’t been following all of the Twitter Files posts, but I have a feeling that the same request was made to Twitter and the answer lies in there.
Might be a good starting point for the "who":
We need to sue them anyway. Let them know that we won't take their censorship without a fight. Have you considered crowdfunding a legal fund to push back against stuff like Facebook saying "no"?
There's all kinds of grounds for suit we can explore: government collusion, violation of terms of service, etc. Sometimes just bringing the suit is enough to make them comply. Because they are cowards.
I have never put into a crowd source. I pledge to put into this one if it comes up.
Just because they say it's final doesn't make it so. There's a lot more to the "legal route" than asking their legal department.
Show up at Facebook headquarters and attempt to get in and talk to someone at least kinda "important", like James O'Keefe type style, definitely have the hidden camera!!!
I like the merging of this and the crowd sourcing idea. Let's crowd source a suit and everyone involved in the suit should wear hidden cameras all the time. In fact James O'Keeffe should be hired by our crowd sourced funds to investigate this issue and the progress of the suit.
This doesn't strike me as a legal route. Asking their legal team to pretty please unblock you just looks like another appeal. Unless I'm missing something?
At some point actual legal precedent is going to need to be set in court with regard to digital censorship.
u/Doggos have you tried reaching out to any of the known right-friendly attorneys like Robert Barnes, Nick Rekieta, or Bill Richmond to see if there is any basis for a 230 publisher/platform case with a contingency-based fee structure?
I bet the pedes on this site would crowd source the legal fees. I've never given to a crowd source campaign and I'd rather be caught dead than not funding this idea.
That being said I've always theorized that this website is funded by people who don't want exposed. Whoever funds this website I trust their judgement even in this unfortunate conflict. I think the people who make patriots.win possible are doing a true selfless service.
If you use Facebook you're part of the problem. Stop it.
Does it matter? Facebook is dead.
The only 'alive' product owned by Facebook/Meta is Instagram, but they cater to a different kind of user. Whatsapp is stagnant, I still remember 2014's Whatapp before it was acquired by Facebook.
Absolutely matters, we have lost out on what must be hundreds of millions of pageviews from the block since 2020.
Google also blocks PDW links. Your comments end up getting shadow banned in real time.
...while commies in google comments still get to spew out shit how Biden is great and can do no wrong.
I really, truly hope Silicon Valley goes the way of Sodom and Gomorrah. I would dance an Irish fucking jig if I woke up to that headline.
You have good points and I largely agree, but I would argue though that our success does indeed depend on reaching blue-pilled people who simply have no idea what's actually going on. That's the only way we can build our numbers. I realize there's an argument that "if they haven't seen the truth already they're willfully ignorant and there's no hope for them", but I'm not entirely sure that's true. I'm confident there are lots of people out there that are totally oblivious, yet not necessarily closed-minded, and just need a nudge in the right direction.
Theres no reason a site like this can't have more than one domain. Register like 100 of them, make them all resolve to here.
Far from dead.
You're ignorant if you think facebook is dead
Facebook is far more insidious and evil than Twatter ever was.
You can't even text patriots.win to another fb user on their platform.
What about lemonparty.org?
There's no such thing as a lemon party without ol' dick
why are you even on facebook you fucking moron
Well at least there is a workaround. Post to something on the list that shows patriots.win and post from that list to Facebook. We got to work around the problems people! What are they going to do ban everyone?
Would it be possible to have a redirecting URL that can be substituted?
You could just use tinyurl.
I thought the same. Or spell it out Patriots(dot)win.
It's really easy to code for following those URLs. This isn't a viable solution.
I haven't used FB in 8 years. Nothing of value was lost
Facebook tracks you across every website you use. You may be done using Facebook, Facebook isn't done using you.
They are when you block their tracking pixels and cookies or clear cookies and data every time you close your browser. I don't save anything
I've just accepted that Big Brother will stalk you to the ends of the earth, and that one should, if the opportunity ever presents itself, regard them as the mortal enemy that they are.
"The website Zuck the cuck doesn't want you to know about"
"the only website banned by facebook"
Seems like we have some advertising slogans.
If you are given lemons make lemonade
It looks like an opportunity to me.
Clearly if we are the only ones being blocked by the worst site on the internet, we are their biggest threat. We have something they fear. El Rushbo always said, they will tell you who they fear.
We need to use our outsider status to drive viewers to our site. I'm proud as hell to be disinvited from Facebook. It's like being the only guy who turned down a ride on Epstein's plane.
Stoics have a saying, The obstacle is the path. We need to embrace our path and use it to show people what they are missing by letting Facebook and others curate their viewing content.
They’re scared that the normies could become educated
Stop respecting any of these "rules" or "guidelines", and/or stop giving said companies this sort of weight.
They have no legal backing, are not democratically ruled on, and are designed to mirror existing moral values. In the same way the best liar is one who tells the truth most of the time, these rules are designed not to be intrusive/political most of the time, so that when needed, they can bring political clout/force.
Google and all its bullshit (youtube, gmail, g-shit), facebook (whatsapp, facebook proper, etc.), reddit, discord.
Shamelessly abuse the shit out of the platforms. Make facebook inpalpable for normal speech. Youtube I just download most videos I watch outright, sucking their bandwidth, and not letting them track what/where/when I'm watching. Adblockers, fingerprint blockers, script blockers out the ass on the browser.
Social capitalism can die in a fire.
I really hope someone funds your legal arm as that's what this is going to take. Your mod team is already facing tech challenges from these same entities. I wish there was a way to expose this as well.
DEATH TO FEDBOOK!
Asking politely isn't working. So serve a suit, and get into discovery.
Gayest shit I've ever read.
Can we set up third party sites which then link through to patriots.win?
Isn't Instagram owned by them also? What about there? Do the PDW links work there?
If you don't know why ppl post pictures of links this is why.
Patriots.win should trend #1 on Twitter for a week to make Zuck shit his pants over and over.
PDW is a threat to democracy.
Probably because Zuckacuck. We triggered him so badly he wrote us off permanently. Poor zuckbot he cry.
Nothing triggers Zuckerberg as much as a Rare Tritium Pepe.
Cuckerberg hates trump
