Social Media Censorship of Conservatives & Christians is on the rise. As an artist who offers support to all people, nations, and cultures, I reach across political and denominational lines with my creative work. However, I do support our Constitution and Bill of Rights as it stands and I do promote equal rights for people of all faiths. Sadly, conservative posts about God or the Second Amendment for instance, can provoke social media censorship these days, and I have experienced this first-hand.
What is my crime? Apparently, promoting understanding of our Bill of Rights & speaking reverently about those who serve in harm’s way is considered an offence by some platform admins. Also, it can be considered a violation of community standards to refer to God as the source of wisdom, peace, strength, and vision. Go figure.
A Bio Story? So, the video & song, “Social Media Jailhouse Blues,” tells my story of how “the algorithms” found me. Since the first time that I posted my Soldier’s Cross Ceremony Video, the social media censorship has been constant. My material is often restricted from the general newsfeed and only a few among my thousands of friends and followers ever see my posts on any Google-based platform unless they happen to visit my profile. Then it is debatable whether or not they see my features even then with special systems in place to restrict, shut off, or block content from view. Yes, from time to time I receive those lovely notes from admins letting me know that I am restricted for a while due to “failing to meet community standards,” or so they say.
Who are “they?” From what I hear, those named, “they,” are the little admins behind the curtain at OZ on these various social media platforms, who hide as cowards while they exercise their unfortunate state of mind. What they clearly do not recognize as they allow themselves to be used as pawns in this grand attempt to snuff liberty from the planet, is that ultimately, these very platforms (along with their admins), are complicit in what could become the ultimate compromise of their own liberty in the process. But such is the constant struggle of Freedom to remain on the planet against constant attempts to oppress the masses; and as world history tells us, there are those who always do become useful in carrying out oppression while receiving praise for these “good acts,” of “socialist” or “marxist-based” notions of “fairness.”
Additional New Social Media Platforms & my Newsletter: Due to this unfortunate state of affairs, I have diversified my methods of communication and created a profile on many new social media platforms which claim to not censor or shadowban. Who knows? We’ll see…Right? But in addition, I have started a newsletter that uses email to communicate. That being said, from what I hear, many standard email platforms are also censoring and blocking mail. So, I will likely have to research a private group that will stop stuffing my emails into people’s spam even though the receivers confirmed their request to be on my mailing list. So, if you have signed up and you think you are not getting my mail, contact me.

Social Media Jail House Blues
Someone lit a fire and burned my Flag
& shared it so all could see
And so I posted my Soldier’s Cross, to speak of
The price paid for my Liberty.
For this, they found me and charged me
Gave no trial with no jury
I got my sentence for being “unfit”
I’m singin’ the Social Media Jailhouse Blues
I posted my portrait
The admins liked it
Cause suddenly all my friends got my news
But then I shared one about my gun rights
They locked it outta my feed
So I’d get no views
For this they hound me and they watch me
While hiding behind the curtain at Oz
Free speech is only free to those whom they choose
I’m singin’ the Social Media Jailhouse Blues
Instrumental Break with the reading of the 1st Amendment
You know…Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
So go ahead & charge me
Cause for lovin’ my Bill of Rights, I stand guilty
And there are millions more
Who will never be silenced
And we will gladly sing the Jail House Blues
Standin’ on Freedom, sing the Jail House Blues
Yes, we’ll be singin’ the Social Media Jail House Blues.
