Facebook, Twitter Have Not Removed Shut Down DC Page

Americans across the nation are waiting with bated breath for the results of the presidential election, but one group may take matters into its own hands if Trump isn’t defeated — and Big Tech hasn’t done anything about it. 

Shut Down DC “is targeting at least 27 conservative organizations in the Washington metro area as Election Day approaches,” reported The Daily Signal. Despite publishing a map of conservative organizations in and around DC, both Facebook and Twitter have allowed the group to remain active on the respective platforms. 

The group’s “about us” page stated, terrifyingly, “The week after the election members of Congress (many of whom will have just been voted out of office) are coming back to DC to go back into session. If Trump is trying to launch a coup, that’s no time for business as usual. We’ll meet them at the train station or the airports or if they drive into town we can meet them at their homes.” The page further stated that the group will not make “value judgments about the tactical approaches other people and organizations may choose to embrace.”

The Daily Signal further reported that “An interactive map from Shut Down D.C. lists as “Trump boosters” a range of organizations, including The Heritage Foundation, the parent organization of The Daily Signal.”

“We are very concerned that Trump is going to try to steal this election, using his position of power,” Kaela Bamberger, an organizer with Shut Down DC, said according to Reuters. Reuters added that the group “plans civil action that may include stopping traffic in the U.S. capital, with dozens of other groups.”

In October, Facebook allowed Shut Down DC and Sunrise DC to organize a protest via a Facebook event page that listed Senator Lindsay Graham’s (R-SC) purported address and called upon supporters to protest at his house.
