Facebook was already dying a slow death before clearly drawing a liberal line in the sand and punishing anyone that went against its new and ever-changing norms.

For the record, I’ve been a registered Independent since about 2007. I am fiscally conservative, pro-free market, think that less government is better, believe that politicians should stay out of our bedrooms, and the government should let people decide what to do with their own bodies. That’s my short version. I’m glad to talk more about it in the comments below.

I’ve personally been on the bad side of Facebook’s funky rules and ever wildly changing moral compass swings: it’s as fun as getting one of those rubber dodge balls right in the jimmy during PE class.

We’ve all been there, am I right gents?

There was a time when our company spent two million a month in Facebook advertising because we could make four million back prior to selling Crate Club in 2020. Those were the golden days before the platform became scared of its own shadow. I’ve heard that any campaign is hard to scale now.

We pulled off the platform as a paid advertiser once Crate Club was out of the mix because we grew tired of getting beaten down from liberal storm squalls that rained down bias against military content.

Facebook would clearly auto-associate anything military with hardcore right-wing agenda and penalize us.

“No scary military photos or your ADs will get banned,” our 20-something Facebook representative of the week would tell us.
