Fascist, Racist LinkedIn Suspended My Account

May 17, 2021

I asked LinkedIn to review the posts that they took down that I showed in my previous entries here. They then restricted my account so that now no one can even see it. They said I might be able to get it back if I showed them the front and back of my driver’s license (sounds like a romance scammer, but the e-mail looked genuine, and I was trying to post a reply to a comment on one of Liz Ryan’s posts mocking employers who think there is a labor shortage at the time they implemented the restriction. I forwarded my comment to my e-mail. Now that they have my driver’s license, they say that I can browse the site but not post until it’s reviewed. As a Green Party candidate an Occupier, and outspoken anti-capitalist, the FBI probably has a file on me, anyway.

As can be seen on my previous entries, they claimed that my posts were removed for violating their rules on harassment and bullying. Here is LinkedIn’s policy on harassment and bullying:

Do not harass or bully: We don’t allow bullying or harassment. This includes abusive language, revealing others’ personal or sensitive information (aka “doxing”), or inciting or engaging others to do any of the same.

Clearly, I did not in any way violate their policies on harassment and bullying. I simply took a position on current events with which LinkedIn management obviously disagrees. Their Professional Community Agreements make no mention of Zionism, Israel, Palestine, or even politics or political discussion in any category whatsoever. They restrict images of sex and violence, but that wasn’t the stated reason for removing my post showing the Palestinian in Haifa being attacked in his home by Israeli police and Zionist mobs in violation of international law. Siding with Israel is clearly siding with the oppressor, as well as deeply racist (even Bernie Sanders, a Jew, has called Israel’s policy toward Palestine extremely racist), which is not a surprise for a neoliberal site like LinkedIn.

If LinkedIn’s posted policies included prohibitions on political discussion or criticizing Israel, I wouldn’t have a right to complain, but as they do not, they are clearly just making up rules as they go along and are completely bankrupt ethically.

  1. I noticed this:

    Do not post terrorist content or promote terrorism: We don’t allow any terrorist organizations or violent extremist groups on our platform. And we don’t allow any individuals who affiliate with such organizations or groups to promote their activities. Content that depicts terrorist activity, that is intended to recruit for terrorist organizations, or threatens, promotes, or supports terrorism in any manner is not tolerated.

    This is bullshit. They allow AIPAC, AJC, and Israel Defense Forces to make posts demonizing Palestinians and attempting to justify first strikes against them. I even reported one of AJC’s posts for misinformation. They tried to claim this is all about Palestinian hate for Jews and not about the home expulsions and the attack on al-Asqa Masjid, which is an objectively false claim.
