Learning to Love Big Brother

If you want to retain your posting privileges on Facebook, you’d better not link to any videos by Tommy Robinson. And don’t post any photos of him. Make sure you don’t like anything by him. And don’t even mention his name, except to tell all your “friends” that he’s a horrible racist and fascist and you hope he gets his face gnawed away by tapirs.

Matt Bracken didn’t follow that advice, and look what happened to him:

Here’s what Matt says about this latest installment of his Facebook ordeal:

On February 27, I posted the YouTube link to Tommy Robinson’s powerful new documentary “Panodrama” on Facebook. (If you have not seen it yet, I cannot recommend it highly enough.) Shortly after the video’s release, Tommy Robinson’s account was deleted by Facebook and Instagram. Tommy had already been banned from Twitter for his earlier thought crimes.

Taking their PC restrictions a major step further, Facebook is now banning or suspending anyone who posts supportive links or messages about banned thought-criminals.

In my case, this means I am now on my eighth 30-day suspension from Facebook in the past year and a half. I was already permanently banned from Twitter for posting an anti-burka meme that did not even mention any religion.

Matthew Bracken was born in Baltimore, Maryland in 1957, and attended the University of Virginia, where he received a BA in Russian Studies and was commissioned as a naval officer in 1979. Later in that year he graduated from Basic Underwater Demolition/SEAL training, and in 1983 he led a Naval Special Warfare detachment to Beirut, Lebanon. Since then he’s been a welder, boat builder, charter captain, ocean sailor, essayist and novelist. He lives in Florida.

  1. I posted Tommy’s video-Goodbye 2018, bring on 2019. I talked about how he was banned from Facebook and Instagram and speculated as to how long he will be on YouTube and wasn’t banned for that. So, it seems to me that it’s not entirely true that you can’t post or say anything about him.

    • I have always enjoyed David Wood’s work. In this video you cite he, in turn, recommends Tim Pool. Pool isn’t a fan of TR, but he recognizes the evil being perpetrated against him.


      I figured the schemers, Hate Not Hope, were behind this and that turns out to be right. I don’t know if you are aware, Matt, but this scurrilous HnH group tried to get Parliament to shut down Gates of Vienna. Yeah, cowardly ignorance rules the day in Ol’ Blighted.

  2. Donald Trump in his meeting with North Korea’s leader Kim Jong Un in Vietnam a few days ago.

    “So, look Kim, your’e a great guy, a really super amazing guy. If one of your ICBM’s with a teeny weeny warhead went astray and hit Silicon Valley “by total mistake” I would start immediate peace negotiations and not retaliate. Catch my drift?”

    • Sorry John, Wrong! If you think wouldn’t hesitate to wipe the NORKs off the map, you don’t understand Trump very well.

  3. Never did Facebook. It’s evil, of course.
    Big Brother? Now there is Big Barmaid.

  4. I like to download youtube videos and keep them in case they are removed by youtube.

    I use Firefox with this downloader:


    It will also download only the audio as MP3 if you want to put the audio onto a USB stick or to your phone and play it through you car radio as a podcast

    • Thanks for the headsup. I’ve often wanted to just use the audio portions of youtube broadcasts. Does it work with bit.tube and bitchute?
