Tea Party Republicans Leave Facebook, Launch Own Community
Black Enterprise Magazine September/October 2018 Issue

Tea Party Republicans feel discriminated against over at Facebook so they’ve defected to their own site called “The Tea Party Community” which launches on Feb. 2, the Huffington Post reports.

Conservatives complained they were the victims of “liberal bullying” over at Facebook, saying they’d been prohibited from expressing their opinion or had images censored they thought were important.

“Most of us are subjected to censorship on Facebook,” the Tea Party Community’s co-founder Ken Crow told Fox News. “I’ve been suspended there as have many of my friends. You also absorb a lot of abuse from liberals.”

Over 50,000 members have signed up for the site, which sports the same shade of blue as Facebook.

Facebook denies censoring anyone intentionally.
