Facebook has permanently disabled the account of a conservative children’s publisher for failing to comply with its ‘low quality or disruptive content’ policy.
Heroes of Liberty, which has published child-friendly biographies of Repulican figures like former President Ronald Regan, Supreme Court Justice Amy Coney Barrett and social theorist Thomas Sowell, launched in November 2021, with the goal of producing children’s content on underrepresented ‘heroes,’ said co-founder and editor Bethany Mandel.
Facebook did not give exact examples of which posts violated its policy, but in a message to Heroes of Liberty it pointed to a rule included in its advertising guidelines that states: ‘Ads must not contain content leading to external landing pages that provide an unexpected or disruptive experience.
‘This includes misleading ad positioning, such as overly sensationalized headlines or prompts for users to inauthentically interact with the ad, and leading people to landing pages that contain minimal original content and a majority of unrelated or low quality ad content.’
Facebook has not responded to DailyMail.com’s request for comment.
In its last post on the now-disabled page on December 19, the publisher advertised one of its books saying: ‘Teach your children and grandchildren the morals and principles of Thomas Sowell with his beautifully illustrated biography. There is no better way to ensure a more promising future for the next generations.’
It includes a post with a quote by Sowell that says: ‘Our children and grandchildren may yet curse the day we began hyping race and ethnicity. There are countries where that has led to slaughters in the streets but you cannot name a country where it has led to greater harmony.’
The page also posts to external reviews on right-leaning news site DailyWire.com and to a segment on The Megyn Kelly show which aired on December 15 – days before the page was disabled.
The Facebook page links to the publisher’s website, which contains links to segments on Fox News, and political commentator Megyn Kelly, who bills the book series as ‘counter-programing’ woke culture.
