Facebook Unpublished Our Already Unpublished Page Because A Christmas Tree Profile Picture Violates Their Community Standards

Four days ago the Turtleboy Sports Fallout Shelter, which had 25,000 followers, was unpublished because of this:
Well apparently Facebook really, really hates Christmas, because we just got this taken down a couple hours ago:
A profile picture of a Christmas Tree “doesn’t follow our community standards.” On the day after Christmas.
Oh, and here’s the best part – that page was unpublished four days ago. It literally didn’t even exist as far as the readers are concerned. That means someone reported that picture for violating the community standards at least 5 days ago, and it finally caught up with the Facebook robots, who determined that their complaint is legitimate.
Oh wait, I’m sorry – human beings review every reported incident according to Facebook executive Monika Bickert:
Bickert told CNNMoney that Facebook prioritizes the review of posts inciting physical harm — but all reports of violations are reviewed by trained Facebook employees. She said she often gets asked why the company doesn’t have its “world-class engineers” tackle hate speech “proactively and perfectly.”
Feel free to voice your concerns about the job their “world class engineers” are doing taking down Christmas trees on her wide open Facebook page.
The only people who could see the page while it was unpublished were admins, since we “appealed” it by pressing a button:
But since NO ONE WORKS AT FACEBOOK, no one actually read the “appeal,” which involved us pressing a button and not being able to explain that this was obviously a mistake on their part. Now that page is just gone completely.
Here’s my question – where the hell is the conservative media on this one? Where are you frauds?? You people LIVE for this shit. A liberal owned social media website that donates heavily to Hillary Clinton is banning small business owners because we celebrate Christmas. In America. And we haven’t heard a fucking WORD from any of them. Tucker Carlson? Sean Hannitty? Ben Shapiro? Not interested?
Here’s another question – where the hell are liberal politicians? Facebook should be the face of big, gigantic, all powerful, greedy, evil corporations. Mark Zuckerberg is worth $37 billion!!! His company has completely gotten rid of any of competition. They OWN Instagram. They are so powerful that congress believes they were used to control the outcome of the Presidential election. They own a monopoly that EVERYONE uses, so much so that it’s essentially become a public utility. And yet somehow they are allowed to get away with hiring no employees in order to increase their profit margins. Only 16,000 people work for a website with 1.86 billion users. That’s an insane statistic. Meanwhile regular, working class people are the ones who suffer because there is no one to call when Facebook takes down our pages without cause.
Why? Because this is COO Sheryl Sandberg:
Throwing cash at Hillary Clinton and other “democrats” who claim to care so much about working class people. Facebook has it all figured out – support democrats because they’re the party that’s more likely to regulate you.
Here is Sheryl Sandberg’s wide open Facebook page. Feel free to let her know what her billion dollar company is doing to small businesses.
Anyway, we will fight this and we will win. I’d be lying if I said it wasn’t hurting us. Of course it is. We’ve lost about half of our daily page views, and thus our daily revenue. That’s huge man. The best way turtle riders can help in the meantime is just by buying something from our online store by clicking here. We could also go PBS on this bitch and ask for donations, but it’s really not our style. Either way we need to adjust because Turtleboy Jr. can’t survive on gruel and porridge for too much longer.
