It is no secret that Facebook’s CEO, Mark Zuckerberg, has transformed what was formally a “social media platform,” into a politically biased, left-wing fiefdom, where only those individuals and news organizations which share his political beliefs (open borders, socialism, and seemingly general hatred for the truth) are allowed to be heard.

In a demonstration of just how far Facebook has gone in its crusade to silence anyone who does not worship at “Dear Leader’s” altar of leftist lunacy, in December 2018, Facebook suspended the account of Christian evangelist Franklin Graham for 24 hours. They justified this action by citing a post from two years earlier, in which Graham criticized North Carolina’s H.B. 2 (“the bathroom bill”), which would have allowed men to use women’s bathrooms.

In his post, which Facebook characterized as “dehumanizing language,” Graham voiced his concern for “the safety and privacy of women and children.”

Following a great deal of media attention, Facebook rescinded the suspension, and offered a rather questionable explanation for the ban. “Facebook said the ban was made in error by Facebook’s content review team, which has upward of 15,000 employees, and said that it was a mistake to take Graham’s original post down,” reported The Washington Examiner.1

Mark Zuckerberg is the mayor of a ‘virtual sanctuary city’

While Facebook can be very tough on anyone questioning the wisdom of allowing men to use women’s restrooms, they seem to embrace with equal vigor, violent illegal aliens.

In the early morning hours of December 28, 2018, police captured Gustavo Perez Arriaga, 32, who reportedly gunned down 33-year-old Newman Police Department Corporal Ronil Singh, on Christmas Day. The Fresno County Sheriff’s Office and Kern County Sheriff’s Office, have confirmed the arrest.

The Daily Mail reported:

Congressional district candidate Ted Howze also posted on Twitter to confirm that the fugitive wanted in Singh’s murder was arrested, writing: “Great News…. The fugitive wanted in connection with murder of Newman, California Police Officer Ronil Singh has been arrested.”2

Corporal Singh was shot to death while making a routine stop for a suspected DUI, on the illegal alien gang member.

As for the suspect, he is a member of the notoriously violent, California-based street gang known as the Sureños, according to police.

The gang is affiliated with the prison gang known as the Mexican Mafia, which is responsible for several murders annually, as well as a lucrative, ongoing human-smuggling operation, across the U.S./Mexican border.

“This suspect is in our country illegally. He doesn’t belong here,” Stanislaus County Sheriff Adam Christianson told reporters.

The illegal alien currently had at least five active Facebook pages under different aliases, including several photos in which he can be seen with a distinctive skull tattoo, along with the word “Sureños” and brandishing a handgun. No word yet from Facebook, if any of his activity “violates community standards” policy.

Corporal Ronil Singh immigrated (legally) to this country from Fiji and was a seven-year veteran of the Newman Police Department (NPD). Prior to joining the NPD, he was a deputy with the Merced County Sheriff’s Office. Corporal Singh leaves behind a wife and a five-month-old son.

While it is true that Facebook administrators had no prior knowledge that this illegal alien was going to murder a police officer, they certainly could view his multiple profiles, in which he continuously glorified his own gang status, and frequently made threats of violence against American citizens (including police officers).

However, as stated previously, this type of activity, does not apparently “violate community standards,” as far as Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg is concerned. As of January 2, 2019, Arriaga’s Facebook accounts were still active.

Of course, this is not the first time Facebook has chosen to protect the free-speech rights of violent illegal aliens, while silencing citizens who speak out against their criminal activity.

In August 2018, Sedwin Osmel-Vasquez Carrillo, 28, and Elder Rene Carrillo-Cruz, 26, were arrested by the Kentucky State Police when an undercover investigation revealed that the pair of illegal aliens were using Facebook Messenger to share child pornographic images. Both suspects were living in Shelbyville, Kentucky, at the time of their arrest.

They were charged with possession or viewing of matter portraying a sexual performance by a minor and distribution of matter portraying a sexual performance by a minor.

Upon questioning, both Carrillo-Cruz and Carrillo admitted to distributing child pornography.

While most would likely think that the distribution of child pornography would be a “violation” of Facebook’s “community standards,” regardless of where one stands politically, you would be wrong…

As of January 2, 2019, (134 days after his arrest), Sedwin Carrillo (you know, “a Shelbyville man”) still had multiple Facebook accounts open.3

Disturbingly, many of Carrillo’s photos include those of himself surrounded by children.

The Washington Post’s ‘War on Angel Families’

On December 28, 2018, Washington Post reporter, Terrance McCoy wrote a piece entitled “Trump used her slain daughter to rail against illegal immigration. She chose a different path.” The article describes how Laura Calderwood, whose 20-year-old daughter, Mollie Tibbetts, of Brooklyn, Iowa, was kidnapped and murdered by an illegal alien, Cristhian Bahena-Rivera (whom McCoy repeatedly referred to as an “undocumented immigrant”), has now taken into her home, the cousin of Mollie’s killer, also an illegal alien.

McCoy painted Bahena-Rivera as a sympathetic figure, though Tibbetts, a University of Iowa student had been stabbed to death and hidden in a cornfield, where it lay decomposing for months, according to an autopsy report. Though Bahena-Rivera admits that he chased Mollie, after seeing her jogging alone, he now claims that he “blacked out” and cannot remember exactly how her defiled body wound up in the cornfield.

The reporter in question also wrote glowingly about Ulises, the 17-year-old cousin of Mollie’s killer, whom Calderwood invited to come live in her home, after his own parents (also illegal aliens), fled Iowa, fearing deportation, following the discovery of Mollie’s body.

Though busy fervently heaping praise upon Calderwood, for what most would likely characterize as an unwise move, and attempting to elicit sympathy not only for her current, illegal boarder, but for illegal aliens in general (even Mollie’s killer), Mr. McCoy found the time to attack the thousands of parents who have chosen to take a stand for law and order after their children were killed by illegal aliens.

“The stories almost always begin the same way. A son or daughter is dead, and an undocumented immigrant is blamed. Aggrieved and adrift, the parents search for meaning in it all, some finding what they can in obsession and hatred,” McCoy scrawled.4

In a Tweet, McCoy also stated: “I interviewed lots of families whose kids were killed by an undocumented immigrant. Some turned to obsession and hatred. Others became Trump evangelists. Then there was Mollie Tibbetts’ mother, who made this extraordinary statement in the most quiet of ways.”5

No, Mr. McCoy, the stories do not “ almost always begin the same way.” They, in fact, “begin the same way” every single time...needlessly and 100 percent preventable!

If our border was actually secured and our immigration laws were actually enforced, Mollie Tibbetts would still be here, as would Sarah Root, Dominic Durden, and Joshua Wilkerson, whose parents you tried to trash in your tribute to illegal aliens.

Of course, this is not the first time The Washington Post has attempted to denigrate Angel Families.

In June 2018, “undocumented journalist,” Dana Milbank wrote a piece in which he characterized President Trump and this writer as “white nationalists,” and said that he was sickened when he visited the website, U.S. Illegal Alien Crime Report (illegalaliencrimereport.com).

However, he was not sickened by the fact that illegal aliens rob, rape, and kill Americans everyday, as the site daily reports, but by the “peek at the ugliness that lurks just beneath the surface of support for Trump and his nativist policies.”

Apparently, reporting on the vile crimes committed by illegal aliens, is more offensive than the crimes themselves, at least in the minds of those who refuse to report on those crimes, choosing instead to push their own left-wing agenda.

But, it was not Milbank’s selective memory (following our interview), nor his “cut and paste” style of journalism, nor even his tiresome cries of racism, which angered me. Honestly, this publisher of U.S. Illegal Alien Crime Report owes Milbank a big thank you, for driving an enormous amount of traffic and new readers to the website.

It was his characterization of the grieving parents who stood on a stage with President Trump during a June 22 news conference, to tell the American people how their children were murdered by illegal aliens, which induced a bout of acute hypertension.

According to the “undocumented journalist,” criminal aliens present little to no threat to the American people. “But the angel parents had been told otherwise,” wrote Milbank.

Milbank went on to paint the now-activist parents as unwitting dupes, saying: “The purpose of reciting this is not to besmirch the grieving angel parents, some of whom I suspect are being misled.”6

This columnist has interviewed and has an ongoing relationship with nearly every Angel Mom or Dad standing on that stage, and I can personally vouch for the integrity, intelligence, and determination of every single one of them.

They all knew exactly why they were there, and why they continue to fight for our laws to be upheld...Their children have been “permanently separated” from them, and they don’t want the same fate to befall one more American. ■
