Harry Hurley hosts a morning talk radio program on WPG Talk Radio 95.5 FM and 1450AM. These stations are heard in the Atlantic City area and most of southern New Jersey. WPG is affiliated with Fox News Radio. Hurley often makes guest appearances on its national programs.
Hurley is active in many community and charity events throughout South Jersey. Democrats like Governor Phil Murphy, former Atlantic City Mayor Lorenzo Langford, and ballot harvester Craig Callaway are frequent guests on his program. So are mainstream Republicans like former Governor Chris Christie, State Senator Michael Testa, and State Senate candidate Vince Polistina. I am also often invited to talk on-air about LibertyAndProsperity.com.
During each of the past seven years, Hurley has been named as one of the Top 100 Talk Radio Hosts in America by Talkers Magazine.
Hurley acknowledged this year’s honor by sharing the Talker’s Magazine article on his Facebook Page with this “thank you”. This year’s Talker’s Magazine article, and Hurley’s “thank you” were virtually identical to what Hurley had posted on Facebook during each of the past seven years:
“My supreme thanks and appreciation to Michael Harrison & Talkers Magazine for the incredible high honor of appearing on the 2021 list of the 100 Most Important Radio Talk Show Hosts in America.
“This is our 7th consecutive year appearing on the most coveted list in our industry.
“I am so grateful.
“My sincere thanks and appreciation to my employer, Townsquare Media and our faithful listeners and advertisers, who have made it possible for us to be on-air for the past 30 years.
“Thank you to FOX News Radio for the amazing opportunity to do regular fill-in work with you.
This means so much to me.
Congratulations to my colleagues and friends who have made The Heavy Hundred list.
A day later, Facebook took down Hurley’s post with this explanation:
Hurley quickly appealed the decision, he was told that nothing could be done. Click here for the details: Facebook Censored My Post About Talkers Magazine Honor | https://wpgtalkradio.com/facebook-censored-my-post-about-talkers-magazine-honor/?utm_source=tsmclip&utm_medium=referral
A few days later, I had even more trouble with Facebook. I shared a news article about how the owners of a food truck were booted out a “Taste of Home” food truck festival in Philadelphia because they were Israelis. Organizers of the event said they “feared protests” if Israelis took part.
I shared that article on my personal page, as well as on several Facebook groups. One was “Polish Americans Conservative Republican Club”.
I posted the following comment to the article: “Yet most American Jews are so clueless that they believe media and Democrats who tell them Christians and a handful of pathetic “right wing extremists” are biggest threat”.
I posted those comments because of what happened in Jersey City and Munsey, New York 18 months ago.
At that time, two followers of Louis Farrakhan attacked and murdered three random people in kosher grocery store located right next to a Jewish day school. Two weeks later, a man drove 40 minutes from Harlem to Monsey, New York where he randomly slashed Jews at a Hanukkah celebration with a machete, killing one and wounding four others. That was the 13th attack by blacks against Jews that month.
Yet NJ Attorney General Gerbir Grewal and most Jewish leaders falsely blamed the anti-Semitic attacks on “what supremacists” and “right wing extremists”. Two months later, NJ Attorney General Grewal spoke at Beth El Synagogue and repeated that fake narrative. In that appearance, he bragged that to stop threats from “right wing extremists”, he and Governor Murphy had persuaded the Newark Star Ledger to stop publishing comments from readers in its online nj.com editions.
One day later, I received the following notice from Facebook, advising me that my post and the article had been taken down.
The following day, Facebook warned me that I was on probation for “hate” speech. I was warned that both my account and the Polish American group would be “restricted” if this happened again. I was also warned that “many members” in this group “were previously in groups that were taken down, and that some members posted content that goes against our Community Standards”.
So now, Facebook is restricted me, a Jew, for “hate” speech against Jews, because I am urging fellow Jews to pay more attention as to who are our friends, and who our enemies.
What is this about?
It started when Trump was elected President in November, 2016. At that time, Democrats were in shock and denial. They knew that 92% of all media stories about Trump were negative, and could not understand how so many Americans could possibly vote for Trump.
Democrats then tried to overturn the 2016 election in two ways. First, they did recounts in Pennsylvania and Wisconsin. Then they tried to persuade electors to break their pledges to voters. Democrats could not believe that Donald Trump could have possibly gotten so many votes.
All that changed in March of 2017. At that time, media studies were released by Harvard, MIT, and the Columbia School of Journalism.
Those studies gave a very simple explanation as to why Democrats lost. They found that although 92% of mainstream media stories were against Trump, conservatives had used Facebook, Twitter, and other social media to create their own media.
The study found that during the 2016 election campaign, conservative individuals and groups (like LibertyAndProsperity.com) found conservative, pro-Trump articles on sites like Breitbart, Rush Limbaugh, Fox News, Daily Caller, Gateway Pundit, Washington Examiner, Infowars, Conservative Treehouse, Truthfeed, etc. Then they shared, forwarded, and reposted those articles so many times that they reached more voters than all of the “mainstream” media combined.
When the elites of Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, etc. learned that their platforms had elected Donald Trump, they were horrified. And they very openly announced that they would “fix” their platforms so this could never happen again.
Although Republicans then controlled the White House and both houses of Congress, none of them said or did anything to push back. Instead, they just let Facebook, Twitter and the others carry out their plans.
The Liberty and Prosperity Facebook page was one of the first conservative sites to get whacked. At that time, our page had roughly 8,000 “likes” and “followers”. Our posts were regular “reaching” roughly 20,000 to 120,000 people each week.
That all changed very quickly in January of 2000. Liberty and Prosperity shared this article which truthfully reported that most of the devastating brush fires in Australia were started by arson or accidents. Facebook notified us that this was “false news” because we did not report that the dry conditions were caused by “climate change”. We responded by sending a 2015 article published by a respected university in Australia in a respective scientific journal say that thousands of years of soil borings confirmed that Australia had cyclical droughts for thousands of years.
Facebook punished us again for sharing well-researched articles showing that the COVID-19 virus showed signs of being altered in a laboratory.
However, the truth didn’t matter. Facebook was determined to use any pretext it could to shut down any conservative Facebook page capable of sharing and posting positive stories about President Trump or negative stories about Democrats before the 2020 election.
For that reason, we urge you to share our posts whenever you can to whoever you can. We urge you to open accounts with alternative platforms like Gab and Rumble.
