Fascism is the union of government with private business against the People.
"To The States, or any one of them, or to any city of The States: Resist much, Obey little; Once unquestioning obedience, at once fully enslaved; Once fully enslaved, no nation, state, city, ever afterward resumes its liberty." from "Caution" by Walt Whitman

Indications that Facebook monitors and interferes with politically expressive leftists and constitutionalists

Throughout the social network administered by Facebook.com, there are frequently discussed suspicions and incidents which show how frequently Facebook.com appears to censure people who voice opinions and facts that counter the current fascist regime in the USA.
For insight, read the following archive:

Mark M., 2014-04-08: I am under political attack on Facebook. Some people are reporting my opinions to FB. Attempts are being made to shut down my political views. If I disappear from FB, know that it is due to being politically targeted. -- I don't know who it is or what their agenda is, but I did appear on TV a few days ago with criticism for Israeli policies in the West Bank, critical of the illegal Israeli settlements. I don't know if my public vocalization of Israeli crimes prompted the current attack, but someone, somewhere is coordinating an attack.

Mark M., 2014-04-09: My free speech is now blocked by Facebook. I am unable to post any YouTube videos. I am under political attack on FB by someone or some group that is reporting my postings as "inappropriate." I have been outspoken on FB and in the international media regarding Israeli and US war crimes.

"March Against Monsanto Event Removed by Facebook"
2013-08-20 by Lauren Berlekamp  [http://ecowatch.com/2013/facebook-censors-march-against-monsanto/]:
Facebook has been accused of being a facade for free speech as it has been known to censor controversial content. For example, earlier this year, Mark Zuckerberg was called out for practicing censorship when a Facebook ad by CREDO Mobile was pulled for criticizing his financial and political ties to the Keystone XL pipeline.
The group March Against Monsanto announced yesterday on their Facebook page that Facebook removed an event page promoting a rally in St. Louis, MO, where the biotech giant is headquartered.

The rally is set to take place on Saturday, Oct. 12, with a broad coalition of regional groups and solidarity activists planning to converge at the company’s corporate headquarters. While the event did not contain derogatory or inappropriate content, it was removed for violating Facebook’s Statement of Rights and Responsibilities. The group has since created a new event page for the rally.
Back in May, history was made when 2 million people participated in solidarity protests across the globe to raise public awareness of Monsanto’s toxic legacy in genetically engineering (GE) the food supply. The protests also aimed to promote sustainable farming while exposing the company’s predatory corporate farming and corrupt business practices.
Not only has the outrage over Monsanto driven people to the streets, but it is also driving people to the polls. More than 90 pieces of legislation to label GE ingredients were proposed in at least 26 different states across the U.S. over the past year, with Washington State’s Yes on 522 campaign pushing to let voters decide on mandatory GE labeling. The increased consumer demand for labeling is also driving down Monsanto’s stock price as it becomes increasingly risky for long term investors.
It’s safe to assume that the censorship by the media will continue as critical mass awareness is being reached on the issues that are challenging systemic corruption. But with March Against Monsanto planning more than 600 solidarity events worldwide with an estimated 3.6 million people pledging participation, it is also safe to assume that no amount of censorship is going to keep that awareness from growing.
