A recent Facebook post from a conservative women’s group has caused some to call for an investigation into the group’s Facebook page.
In the post, the group said that the site had become “an echo chamber of liberal propaganda.”
“I’ve been called a liar, a racist, and even a homophobe, and I’ve had to deal with harassment and death threats for speaking my mind,” the group wrote.
“But it wasn’t until this year that I started to realize that the liberal media, who have always treated me as a political enemy, are now actively trying to discredit me as an actual person.”
The group’s posts have drawn widespread criticism, and the group is considering legal action.
“It was absolutely disgusting that a group of people who are very, very politically conservative could be using Facebook to try to discredit a group that was trying to support their causes,” one member of the group, Ashley Johnson, told Fox News.
“What was the purpose of this group, and how could they be using it to do that?”
Facebook, for its part, says it does not censor posts, but it says that it has the power to remove content it deems “unacceptable.”
Johnson is still waiting for Facebook to remove her post.
“I just can’t understand why someone would think that they have the right to post this stuff on Facebook,” she said.
“Facebook is supposed to be a platform for free speech, but there’s a lot of stuff that’s offensive and people are trying to silence people.”
Facebook has not commented on the allegations of censorship.
“We do not have any plans to remove this content at this time,” the company said in a statement.
“Our team is currently investigating this matter and we will take appropriate action if appropriate.”
The Huffington Post reached out to Facebook for comment but did not hear back by press time.
