You may have already noticed, but I am out of Facebook prison after serving my sentence of seven days.
For the past week, I have been unable to post links on Facebook, so I could not directly share my columns with you. I have also been unable to post anything in groups that I did not manage.
All this because I am told I violated Facebook’s “community standards.” There is a long list of those standards, but Facebook did not tell me which one I violated. My guess: “Posting while conservative.”
Yep, political profiling.
I know I did not violate the standards of the millions of people in the MAGA community, and I know that my readers continued to support me during my posting hiatus. Indeed, my page views remained pretty close to their normal average (which sadly is just in the low hundreds!). For that, I thank you. I won’t let Facebook or anyone else stop me from posting stories, videos and columns in support of President Trump. Nor, I should add, do I want to become the poster boy for high-tech censorship. I prefer to fly under the radar.
Also a special thank-you to Theresa Manzella for granting me admin privileges so that I could continue to post to the Ravalli County Constitutional Republicans Facebook group. Much appreciated. That group has been a welcome addition to my reader base!
Hopefully, I will be able to continue posting on Facebook @HeartlandDiaryUSA and on Twitter @HeartlandDiary.

WHO WE ARE
Frank Miele has spent four decades in the news business and now offers conservative commentary to counter the left-wing bias in the national media. If you enjoy reading these daily essays, I hope you will consider purchasing one of my books. They are available at Amazon in paperback or Kindle editions. My new book — “The Media Matrix: What if everything you know is fake?” — shows that Fake News has been around for years. The “Why We Needed Trump” trilogy tackles the politics of the last two decades: Part 1 is subtitled “Bush’s Global Failure: Half Right.” Part 2 is “Obama’s Fundamental Transformation: Far Left.” Part 3 is “Trump’s American Vision: Just Right.” Also consider subscribing to Heartland Diary on YouTube by clicking here for News Every Conservative Can Use.
