I have been suspended by Facebook for posting a meme of Sylville Smith, the armed man killed by police in Milwaukee, Wisconsin this past weekend.

The meme shows Smith holding a Glock handgun with the caption, “2nd Place Milwaukee, WI Quick Draw Competition.” (VIDEO: Milwaukee Rioters Hunt Down, Attack Whites)

Via Reddit

I posted the meme, which is blowing up on Reddit, on a page a group of friends and I ran in college titled, “UW-Madison Confessions.”

Soon my personal account was suspended pending review, and there is the possibility it will be banned forever. (RELATED: CNN Edits Out Milwaukee Police Shooting Victim’s Sister Calling For Violence [VIDEO])

Help the Daily Caller fight the liberal media establishment

Smith was shot and killed after pulling a gun on Milwaukee police officers, and refusing to put it down.

So until further notice I’m sitting in Facebook prison, and Facebook’s reputation of censoring conservative views continues to grow.
