Big tech is covering for liberal activists and censoring the New York Post again, blocking a story on the Black Lives Matter co-founder’s multiple million-dollar homes.

Facebook is preventing users from sharing the Post report, instead giving the error message: “Your content couldn’t be shared, because this link goes against our Community Standards.”

The Post story “was removed for violating our privacy and personal information policy,” a Facebook spokesperson told The Hill.

“Facebook is now blocking the New York Post, reporting,” Fox New host Tucker Carlson said on “Tucker Carlson Tonight” on Thursday. “We just tried to share that on Facebook, and we got a message, ‘You can’t share this link because it goes against our community standards.’ Those standards include flacking for every left-wing activist group in America.”

The New York Times media writer Ben Smith tweeted the reasons given for blocking the story, noting the co-founder’s residences were being identified:

“Facebook on why it blocked a NY Post article. This all applies to lots of articles on news sites.”

Newsmax attempted to post the New York Post report headlined “Inside BLM co-founder Patrisse Khan-Cullors’ million-dollar real estate buying binge,” but could not.

The attempt delivered the following error message: “Your message couldn’t be sent because it includes content that other people on Facebook have reported as abusive.”

Other stories on the topic were permitted to be shared, however.

A subsequent attempt to Facebook share a similar New York Post report of a celebrity home purchase, headlined “Ivanka and Jared buy $30M lot on high-security Miami island” was permitted without issue, error, or warning. The story similarly reported the residence location of the daughter of former President Donald Trump.

Notably, real estate sales and purchases are matters of public record and readily available online, especially for prominent public figures.

The Facebook ban on the Post’s reporting of the BLM co-founder’s newfound riches appeared to begin Thursday, according to reports.

Infamous during the 2020 presidential campaign, multiple social media companies blocked the New York Post’s reporting on the alleged contents of Hunter Biden’s laptop, originally under the guise it was material obtained via a cyber “hack.”

There has been no evidence, then or now, that was the case, despite the claims by Twitter and Facebook, two organizations conservatives criticize for being left-leaning and holding political bias against Republicans in general and Trump supporters in particular.

Outkick journalist Jason Whitlock, a Black man, was also censored by Twitter last week for calling out the BLM co-founder’s hypocrisy, sharing the Post story.

Whitlock tweeted in a now-blocked post:

“Black Lives Matter found buys $1.4 million home in Topanga, which has a black population of 1.4%. She’s with her people!”
