Big Tech keeps a monopoly on what Americans are able to see. In the latest case, Facebook is now deciding what American children should or shouldn’t read by censoring a conservative children’s book publisher.
Recently, Facebook “permanently disabled” the ad account of “Heroes of Liberty.” Heroes of Liberty publishes books about prominent conservative American figures like Supreme Justice Amy Coney Barrett, Author Thomas Sowell, and former President Ronald Reagan.
The social media giant permanently locked the publisher out of their Facebook ad accounts, citing “low quality or disruptive content.”

Facebook disables Heroes Of Liberty Ad account
Facebook locked Heroes of Liberty’s ad account from them on December 23rd. The book publisher received a message from Facebook stating, “This ad account, its ads and some of its advertising assets are disabled because it didn’t comply with our policy on Low Quality or Disruptive Content.”
When Heroes of Liberty appealed Facebook’s decision, the social media giant made their ruling a “final” one.
Facebook sent the publisher this message, “After a final review of this ad account, we confirmed it didn’t comply with our Advertising Policies or other standards. This ad account cannot be used for advertising and all ads will continue to be disabled. This is our final decision.”

Heroes of Liberty editor and board member Bethany Mandel appeared on the Fox Business channel Sunday and did not hold back about her reaction to Facebook’s decision and what she thought might really be happening.
Mandel said, “The question is: is a children’s biography of Ronald Reagan no longer permissible on Facebook? We don’t know. But apparently promoting one may well kill a business.”
Mandel continued saying,
“We are not in politics, we are in the business of creating beautiful stories about great people that will entertain children and give them life lessons. To cancel children’s books because they celebrate American values that 90% of Americans believe in isn’t even anti-conservative bias, it’s anti-American. Pure madness.”

Heroes Of Liberty Creates a Facebook Account to Promote Books
Bethany Mandel states that Heroes of Liberty began using Facebook ads to grow their brand back in July 2021.
On November 9, the publisher started publishing books and launched the brand officially on November 14.
Heroes of Liberty had promoted 68 advertisements on Facebook before they were locked out of their Facebook advertising account. A social media company also prevented the publisher posting material on its public pages.
Mandel claims 95.2% of the advertising budget went to ads that were ranked “average” or “above average” on the platform, adding that only 3 out of 68 ads were rated “below average.”
Mandel claims that the publisher has lost a significant amount of Facebook advertising money, as well as assets and data.
She laments, “marketing-wise we are back in square one, financially it’s even more challenging.”

It’s a favorite among parents
Bethany Mandel, a mom of five children, said the book series is becoming increasingly popular.
The books do not focus on conservatism or political personalities but instead are about traditional American values, good moral lessons and American history.
According to a Fox Business report, a publisher’s survey showed that 58% want children’s books to reflect conservative and traditional values, and 52% of conservative and moderate parents do not want their kids subjected to left-leaning liberal ideology like critical race theory.
Mandel also stated that in a Heroes of Liberty survey, 67% of parents said they pre-read their children’s books. Heroes of Liberty will publish one book per month in addition to its books on Sowell, Reagan and Barrett. A few of the books that will be published in the future will focus on the lives of Alexander Hamilton, Mark Twain and General Douglas MacArthur.
Ironically Heroes of Liberty reached out to 12 top U.S. illustrators when it was time for them to take over the job. All of the people who worked on this book series were from Asia and Africa.
Bethany Mandel summarized the state of social media and big tech in this statement.
“It’s very likely those same people reported to Facebook that our content is disturbing, because it doesn’t sit well with their radical worldview. These are the same people who riot and take down statues of our founding fathers in the real world, and they want to strip us of our ability to honor our Heroes in the digital sphere and in children’s books. Our problem is that it seems that Facebook went with the mob judgment call and not with common sense.”
