November 6, 2020 (LifeSiteNews) — Facebook shut down the “Stop the Steal” group, which was created to “give a voice” to the “millions” of Americans who have raised the alarm over the 2020 election vote-counting process, less than a day after its inception.
At the time of the shutdown, the pro-Trump “Stop the Steal” group, created by Women for America First, had already amassed around 365,000 members.
In a press release, the group’s executive director, Kylie Jane Kremer, said the shutdown illustrates Facebook’s selective “silencing” of conservative groups.
“In just under 24 hours, 365,000 people all across the country joined our Facebook group. Our group was formed to give a voice to the millions of Americans who are concerned about the vote-counting process,” said Kremer.
“It is absolutely beyond the pale that Facebook would selectively choose to shut down our group. Is this the same standard they are applying to left wing groups? Why isn’t Facebook de-platforming groups like Shut Down DC which are currently claiming the GOP is trying to ‘steal’ the election? The answer is obvious — they are selectively enforcing their new rules to silence conservatives.”
According to Kremer, the group did “everything” it could to ensure that they were operating within Facebook’s terms of service.
“Facebook could have flagged or deleted comments that they believed violated their terms of service or they could have notified us. Instead, they chose to simply shut down the entire group,” said Kremer.
“Despite Facebook’s best efforts, Americans who are concerned about this election and our country’s future will not be stopped. We will continue to organize peaceful protests, rallies and sign-(waving)s across the country and will continue to make every effort to guarantee that every single lawfully cast ballot is counted.”
According to Facebook, the group was shut down due to alleged “worrying calls for violence” from some members of the group.
“The group was organized around the delegitimization of the election process, and we saw worrying calls for violence from some members of the group,” said Facebook in a report by AFP.
“In line with the exceptional measures that we are taking during this period of heightened tension, we have removed the Group ‘Stop the Steal,’ which was creating real-world events.”
Christopher Barron, who serves as the public relations spokesman for Women for America First, told LifeSiteNews that they are focusing all their energy on making sure every legal vote counts.
“Our energy is focused on fighting for every legal ballot being counted,” he told LifeSiteNews. “Facebook has made it clear that conservatives aren’t welcome on their platform.”
Despite some reports to the contrary, as other groups use similar names, Barron confirmed for LifeSiteNews that their “Stop the Steal” Facebook page is still down.
In the aftermath of the U.S. elections, concerns over voter fraud have been raised by President Donald Trump and his supporters over unexpected jumps in votes for Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden in some states.
Yesterday, Trump tweeted a claim of victory in Pennsylvania, Georgia, North Carolina, and Michigan in a bold move, in what promises to be a hotly contested melee of lawsuits along with potential recounts to decide who will win the 2020 presidential election.
For his part, Biden seems certain that he is on track to win the U.S. presidency.
Social media companies have come under fire for policies put in place that seem to place a limit on what users can post during the U.S. election cycle.
Recently, social media giant Twitter announced new restrictions limiting the free speech of its users with regard to the 2020 election, stating, “People on Twitter, including candidates for office, may not claim an election win before it is authoritatively called.”
Twitter has been heavily censoring Trump’s tweets post-election, especially ones regarding his concerns over alleged fraud in the counting of votes in crucial swing states.
Currently, there are claims of vote tampering in four states, which are all critical in determining who the next President will be.
In Nevada, the Trump campaign claims that they have “seen” evidence of votes being counted for those who are deceased along with people who do not have proper residency status in the state. Trump’s legal team is also challenging local state officials not allowing Republican poll watchers to scrutinize the counting of ballots.
Happening overnight in the state of Wisconsin, there was a massive vote dump of 137,000 votes, all for Biden.
In Michigan, a Project Veritas video claims to show a postal service worker who says that he, along with his co-workers, were told by their supervisor to back-date mail-in ballots not received in time.
Perhaps one of the biggest battles is taking place in the state of Pennsylvania, where a huge number of votes in Philadelphia, around 23,277, were counted “all for Biden.”
PETITION UPDATE (1/15/2021) -
The events of the past month, and especially the past 10 days, have shaken the faith Americans have in their elected and appoint officials.
We continue to call for investigations to be made into allegations of election fraud. Texas is in the process of prosecuting one political operative for illegal ballot harvesting, and multiple state legislatures have called for investigations, too.
However, the judiciary has severely let down the American electorate.
As we have said all along, the integrity of the election is much bigger than President Trump. Election integrity is at the heart of republican democracy, and if we don't have it, we no longer have a functioning republic.
Therefore, we continue to seek the truth for the election outcome. Perhaps that will only be known in the future when state or federal commissions are established to investigate the instances of election fraud which were witnessed and sworn to, by thousands of Americans of all political persuasions.
In the meantime, you may still sign this petition. Thank you!
PETITION UPDATE (12/10/20) -
On Wednesday, President Trump tweeted: "We will be INTERVENING in the Texas (plus many other states) case. This is the big one. Our Country needs a victory!"
He is referring to the lawsuit which the state of Texas has filed against Michigan, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin and Georgia in the Supreme Court over changes those states made to their election rules, claiming they violated the U.S. Constitution in the process.
Here is the central part of the argument: if Texas were to allow possible voter fraud to go unchecked in Michigan, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, and Georgia, it would be akin to committing fraud upon the people of Texas, who cast their ballots within the framework of the law.
Indeed, this would apply equally to all citizens who voted within the framework of the law across the United States!
President Trump also tweeted that this case is, "very strong...ALL CRITERIA MET."
Please continue to SIGN and SHARE this urgent petition, now.
PETITION UPDATE (12/7/20) - Since this petition was launched, President Trump's legal team, as well as other concerned citizens, have discovered what appears to be irrefutable evidence of voter fraud in several of the key battleground states, and have initiated legal challenges in six states.
While the situation continues to evolve, this remains a hugely important petition which we encourage you to SIGN and SHARE.
Below, please WATCH and READ about the mounting evidence of voter fraud and how the mainstream media seem determined to ignore even the most egregious instances of vote tampering. Then, please SIGN and SHARE this petition.
LifeSite supports President Trump with this petition because we believe he is trying to defend the Constitution, ensuring that electoral fraud does not taint the result of the 2020 general election.
But, since starting this petition, we have launched a separate petition related to the disputed election outcome, calling on the Department of Justice to 'do their job' and engage in meaningful investigations of the mounting evidence of voter fraud.
We believe that conducting forensic audits of ballots and voting machines, as well as issuing subpoenas to collect more evidence, would be a good start.
Thankfully, some of the state started to demand investigations independent of federal agencies. But we still believe that the DoJ needs to use its enormous fact-finding resources to help resolve allegations of election fraud.
Thank you for continuing to SIGN and SHARE all our election-related petitions.
Please SIGN and SHARE this urgent petition which calls on all Americans to Stand With President Trump as he uses every legitimate means to find out if voter fraud played any role in the election outcome.
Amid allegations of voter fraud, and at a time when the situation with COVID has been used by many of the states to facilitate the use of mail-in ballots on a massive scale, we need to be very careful in dismissing the possibility of voter fraud.
The fact is, the possibility of wide-spread fraud with mail-in ballots is significant.
But, this is not about Donald Trump or Joe Biden! This about whether or not the sanctity of the ballot box has been tampered with!
Please Stand With President Trump as he attempts to defend the integrity of this election, as well as well as the right to vote itself!
Indeed, this is so important, not so much because one election hangs in the balance, but because our democracy, itself, hangs in the balance.
Americans not only have a right to know, but should demand that every legitimate means be used to discover the truth about these elections!
Please SIGN this petition and Stand With President Trump to ensure that these elections were conducted freely and fairly!
While most all Americans believe in playing by the rules, we also know that some very devious, politically-motivated operatives have been trying to harm the Trump administration from before he even took the oath of office.
This fact should lead us to question how some allegations of voter fraud can be so easily dismissed by state election authorities.
We demand to know the truth, and, for the sake of our democracy, we demand that President Trump keep fighting to learn the truth.
Thank you for SIGNING and SHARING this petition today!
