But if the bans are following instructions from the government to ban stuff
that the government disapproves of,-----then they are acting as an arm of
the government. It is a method for the government to implement
unconstitutional acts by saying 'We didn't do it - it's them over there and
they are allowed to do it.'
It is called Fascism - the merger of state and corporate power.  BillK

Treat everything you see on Face Book and most mainstream media as
state-owned media.  If you want actual news, look elsewhere.
