Facebook Bans Conservative Children’s Book Publisher

“Facebook has ‘permanently disabled’ the ads account of a conservative children’s book publisher, claiming that Heroes of Liberty–which has published books about Supreme Court Justice Amy Coney Barrett, former President Ronald Reagan and author Thomas Sowell–violated the company’s rules against ‘Low Quality or Disruptive Content.’ Heroes of Liberty editor and board member Bethany Mandel told FOX Business on Sunday, ‘We began investing in Facebook four months before we launched our first book. We invested most of our marketing budget on the platform, and now our budget (the money we’ve already spent), as well as our assets and data are gone. Marketing-wise we are back in square one, financially it’s even more challenging.’ ‘We are not in politics, we are in the business of creating beautiful stories about great people that will entertain children and give them life lessons,’ she said. ‘To cancel children’s books because they celebrate American values that 90% of Americans believe in isn’t even anti-conservative bias, it’s anti-American. Pure madness.’ While the loss of the Facebook ads platform will cost Heroes of Liberty, Mandel laid out a path forward. She said that the publisher has ‘received a warm welcome, sold tens of thousands of books and learned that many Americans are looking for a wholesome alternative to the current contemporary woke children’s literature.’ ‘We learned our lesson, and won’t risk building our business relying on the whims of Big Tech again,’ she added. ‘We are very happy with our initial decision to create a subscription model that will allow us to create a more meaningful one-on-one connection with families that can’t be disrupted by a censor.’”
