Hours After Social Media Bans Diamond & Silk, They Call In Their Secret Weapon

Most patriots know about Diamond and Silk. These outspoken citizens championed Donald Trump during the 2016 election. Since then, they have been strong supporters of the President. Now they are under fire by the overlords of social media.

As two African Americans, Diamond and Silk smash just about every stereotype. They left the Democratic Party to back Donald Trump. They continue to voice their opinion that black Americans are exploited by the left. Their YouTube, Twitter, and Facebook accounts reach out to millions—including many black viewers.

Their message has won over man fans. More and more Americans are realizing conservatives have black people’s best interests at heart. The broken policies of the left have reduced many African Americans to poverty and crime. But under Trump, things are getting better.

It seems like Facebook has become threatened by the impact of Diamond and Silk. They just slapped punished their page, calling them “unsafe to the community.”

Diamond and Silk aren’t taking this lying down. Now, they are calling on the President himself to confront this issue.

From Breitbart:

The YouTube sensations known as Diamond and Silk, former Democrats who left the party to support President Donald Trump, called on the Trump administration to probe social media giants over allegations of singling out certain political viewpoints.

The outspoken pro-Trump duo made the call two days after they took to their Facebook page on Friday to say that they were informed by Facebook that the Internet giant deemed their content and videos to be “unsafe to the community…”

“I don’t believe in big government, but I do believe that maybe our government should look at the social media platforms,” Diamond said. “Because let me tell you something, they dominate about 90{75726800c12fe2ebed14402fd98444a61f7eda42751f92330bc58faf20bd8821} of the world now. Think about that. I’m talking about the world. Not just the United States. I’m talking about the world. So that means that they can silence your voice and it will only be one point of view and that is dangerous.”

Unless you’ve been asleep for the last few years, you know social media is attacking conservatives. Trump supporters are being attacked across all platforms. Some accounts are banned. Others are “shadow banned,” meaning their followers don’t see their posts. Sites like YouTube demonetize their videos, so the creators can’t make money off their many views.

Let’s be honest, Diamond and Silk’s only “crime” is being black conservatives. Their Facebook page has over a million followers. That’s a huge reach for two regular ladies to have. They were visible figures during the campaign, appearing at Trump rallies. Today they continue to support the President, as the left finds new ways to attack him.

It comes as no surprise that Facebook would punish them. This shocking attempt at censoring two black women is a reminder of how liberals treat minorities. They pretend to love black people, as long as they do what liberals tell them to do. But Democrats abuse, malign, and silence black people who vote Republican. It’s disgusting hypocrisy.

Facebook has not provided clear examples of Diamond and Silk’s “unsafe” content. It’s clear the liberal overlords were threatened by these women. Diamond and Silk’s call for the President to intervene is a part of a larger campaign by conservatives.

Many have demanded that the government step in and redefine social media. Classifying sites like Facebook as utilities would prevent them from censoring content. Facebook, Twitter, and others will not be able to ban conservatives, just for speaking their mind.

Perhaps it’s time the government stepped in and did just that. Otherwise, more conservatives will be victimized by Silicon Valley.
