Talk-radio-show-host Howie Carr says, is that ‘virtue signaling on behalf of the Warren campaign.

The owner of a website, the details of the various controversies surrounding Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., says an accompanying Facebook page still policy to combat the impersonation was put without notice, it was considered a violation of the Facebook -.

William Jacobson, a professor of law at Cornell Law School, owns and operates — a web page, the various controversies surrounding the Democratic presidential candidates, in particular their claims to Native American heritage.


He also ran an accompanying Facebook page, the posts from the site.

“It was a way to get the content to the public,” he told Fox News in an interview.

But on Monday afternoon he received a message to say it had taken for violation of the guidelines in respect of impersonation. Facebook’s community standards forbid users to work with other peoples pictures fool you, or deceive people about the origin of the content.

“Pages, groups and events must not impersonate, or misrepresent a brand, organization or Person of the public life,” are the guidelines. “Where a page, group or event is used to support or interest in a brand, Organisation or Person of the public life, it needs to make it clear, in the name or description, that it is not an official representation.”

But Jacobson argues that in the context of the Facebook standards, as it carried a disclaimer that says that it is not in connection with Warren’s campaign or Senate office. He posted a screenshot of this disclaimer in an article for legal Insurrection. He also said that the site never tried to imitate Warren, also of the disclaimer.

“The site is called” Elizabeth Warren Wiki “and it has a link to the wiki website and all content published on the wiki site, so that no one on the page and think this is their campaign or Senate office, there’s everything from the wiki website was,” he said.

“I think that we have all our bases, and I don’t know how this happened,” he said.


Jacobson said he immediately filed an appeal on the Facebook process but has not heard back yet and the page is still down as of Tuesday afternoon.

In his original article identify his concerns, he wrote: “It is a reminder, as if you took out our YouTube page was, without warning, we can’t rely on big tech.”

Facebook did not immediately respond to a request for comment from Fox News. Jacobson said he is not sure why the page was pulled, but wondered if there is a current feud between Warren supporters and those of sen Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., partially responsible was.

“Everything I know is in the last couple of days there was a Twitter war between Bernie and Warren Fans, and Bernie’s followers were linking to the wiki-site,” he said. “It is pure coincidence or could it be that someone decided to complain to Facebook about the page.”


The suspension comes just as the comments showed up from Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg warning that the company may have to sue the government, if Warren becomes President.

“You have someone like Elizabeth Warren believes that the right answer is to break up the company … I mean, if she is elected President, then I would bet we would bet a legal challenge, and I think we will win the legal challenge,” Zuckerberg said in July, according to The verge.
