Mark Zuckerberk robbed a triple-amputee Iraq War veteran, and people have condemned the incident.
Brian Kolfage joined the Air Force before the manslaughter of 3000 Americans in September 11, 2001 terror attacks that wiped out the Twin Towers in new York City.
Kolfage wanted to serve our country, and prevent any similar attack. The killings have got to stop, and the veteran was determined to help his country.
During his second tour in the Middle East, Brian was part of a dangerous mission in Iraq. On September 11th, 2004, a 107 mm rocket hit feet from Kolfage.
Unfortunately, he lost his legs and his right hand. Doctors did not expect him to survive or walk again, but he is alive and stronger than ever.
After a year of his recovery at Walter Reed Army Medical Center, Brian left the facility. He overcame the odds by working for the Air Force again, and this time he worked as a base security manager.
Brian was also part of the Congresswoman Gabrielle Gifford’s Veterans Advisory Committee. The veteran enrolled at the University of Arizona’s School of Architecture and was drawing with his left hand. Brian used to write and draw with his right hand, but it was gone now. The veteran graduated and received the prestigious Pat Tillman Scholar award.
In 2014, he was bestowed the George C. Lang Award for Courage for his great actions and taking care of wounded veterans. Brian often visits the Walter Reed Medical Center and travels the nation in an effort to motivate veterans and other people. He also got married and has two amazing children.
Brian was far from done. He got into news publishing and managed pages on Facebook for news websites. He co-founded the Military Grade Coffee, a coffee company which donates 10% of its profit to veterans organisations.
The veteran also ran the Right Wing News Facebook page and was part of the bran for several others. However, few days ago, Facebook decided not to support Brian’s conservative views. Brian’s page had 3.6 million fans, and Brian was the reason it grew this big.
Brian invested $315,000 to grow other brands on Facebook. Facebook requested admins to invest a lot of money to reach large masses for the brands he was responsible of. Zuckerberg took Brian’s money, and decided not to allow the popular conservative page to interfere with the 2018 midterm elections after it became a huge part of the 2016 presidential elections.
Facebook took the advantage of the opportunity and took out bad pages and lumped in Brian’s network. This was a huge mistake, and Brian lost $315,000. Brian was robbed and laughed at. It was nothing but a political and personal attack. However, Facebook underestimated the power of the veteran.
Zuckerberg did not even think that President Trump will invite Airman Brian Kolfage in the Oval Office.
Brian could not remain silent. Here’s what he wrote:
“My income as a father and husband is threatened.
This isn’t the right to free speech I gave my legs and arm to defend. Three limbs wasn’t enough for some … now my livelihood is gone with it.
It is true: I have been managing the Right Wing News Facebook page, and have been involved with the brand for many years.
And just today, Facebook took down our Facebook page, cutting off all contact we had with the millions of people who signed up to follow us, the millions of people who liked what we were sharing online.
I took over managing the page when John Hawkins decided to step aside to pursue other endeavors. John and I have a great relationship and I was honored to have the torch passed down to me. We had a coveted, verified blue check mark 3.5 Million fans, and I invested over $300,000 in ads at Facebook’s own request, nearly begging us to spend spend spend just to reach our fans … whom they kept making more difficult to reach with every passing year.
Never once did Facebook come to us to say there was any issue with Right Wing News or our other pages. Never. But they sure loved taking our money.
We did run multiple Facebook pages; Facebook allows businesses to have more than one page, and we did own them and had them for years. We were not ‘spamming,’ we were not using fake accounts, we were not doing anything “wrong” … except we supported President Trump, and apparently that’s not allowed.
Facebook also deleted my other business page. I own a coffee company called Military Grade Coffee company. We don’t post politics, we sell coffee and support veteran charities. Facebook is maliciously attacking my way of life because of my beliefs, and they don’t care.”
What Facebook has done is illegal. It’s a malicious coordinated attacked on everything I fought for and everything generations of Americans fought for.
And this is exactly why a Facebook Engineer making 6 figures a year walked out and quit his job today, over the assault on conservative beliefs within his former company.”
The New York Times stated that this was a calculated move by Facebook.
