Instagram Permanently Bans an Auburn U. Pro-Life Group, Cites ‘Business Integrity’ Concerns

“We were banned permanently for a regular post promoting the March for Life”

Do you think this would ever happen to a pro-abortion student group?

From the YAF blog:

Pro-Life Student Group at Auburn University Permanently Banned from Instagram

A pro-life student group at Auburn University was informed yesterday afternoon that Instagram decided to permanently suspend its account on the platform, citing “business integrity” concerns after the club announced plans to attend the March for Life.

“Your account, or activity on it, doesn’t follow our Community Guidelines on business integrity,” the notice from Instagram stated.

The post that apparently triggered the ban simply announced that registration for the trip to D.C. had opened up.

It’s unclear why Instagram determined that the announcement violated “integrity” standards. To the contrary, the social media giant’s decision to censor accounts it disagrees with would appear to be one made without regard to ethics or morality.

“We were banned permanently for a regular post promoting the March for Life,” Samuel Hass, a board member of Students for Life at Auburn University, told Young America’s Foundation. “This is a scary reminder how much power these corporations wield over our lives,” he continued.

Instagram’s parent company, Meta, did not immediately respond to YAF’s request for comment, but this article will be updated accordingly.

The student organization has sent an appeal to Instagram, which the company has 30 days to respond to.

“Your account, or activity on it, doesn’t follow our Community Guidelines on business integrity”

Easily fixed.
Have it narrated by a naked chick bouncing her body parts.
Instagram is all about that kind of integrity.

Given what we know about the tech Lords and their political leanings, why would you subscribe to a platform that you know will undermine you at every opportunity?

Wise up. Gab. Rumble. Parler. etc.

You do have choices.

Exercise them.

    This is marketing. And those aren’t where the people are (yet).
    They should also be employing those platforms, but the first give them access to much more of the market.

“Business integrity” sounds like one of the stupider euphemisms of late. It sounds like that should mean “providing value to the stockholder so your company can stay together.” Or, maybe, “not lying to your customers.” But that’s not what it seems to mean, at all.

An all-powerful, authoritarian oligarchy of government and industry leaders which suppresses free speech and individual rights, assigning everyone to groups based on racial and/or ideological purity… sounds like Fascism.
