Facebook is blocking links to a New York Post story that exposes Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Khan-Cullors’ controversial recent home buying spree, preventing users from sharing the link publicly or via private message.
The Post article from April 10 is headlined ‘Inside BLM co-founder Patrisse Khan-Cullors’ million-dollar real estate buying binge’ and reveals how Khan-Cullors, a self-described Marxist, recently purchased four high-end homes for a total of $3.2 million.
As we previously highlighted, one of the homes, a $1.4 million dollar property, is located in Topanga Canyon, California, where the black population is just 1.6 per cent.
Another of the homes, a “custom ranch” located in Georgia, is surrounded by “3.2 rural acres” and features a “private airplane hangar with a studio apartment above it” in addition to an indoor swimming pool.
Now Facebook is completely blocking users from posting a link to the original NY Post story in yet another brazen act of partisan censorship.
When attempting to post the link, the user is met with the message, “Your post couldn’t be shared, because this link goes against our Community Standards.”
Users can’t even send the link via private message to their Facebook friends.
“Facebook will not allow you to post this NY Post story or even to message it to another person. (I just tested it),” tweeted Abigail Shrier.

So Facebook is now effectively opening your mail and reading the contents for ideologically objectionable material.
