Can Donald Trump and Tom Reed Block Their Constituents On Social Media?

Can Tom Reed Legally Block His Constituents On Facebook?

 

My Congressman, Tom Reed, has two Facebook accounts. The first is his “Politician” Facebook page.  The second is his official government Facebook page.  Tom Reed (or an assistant) blocked me from posting on his “Politician” page well over a year ago and all my comments on that page have been deleted.  I am not sure exactly why he blocked me.  It might be because I have posted a comment or two that he didn’t like about the Iran nuclear deal.  I imagine he didn’t appreciate my column in the Ithaca Journal last year that criticized his bashing of the deal.

Or it might be because he made a post saying something that was bashing President Obama (I forget what it was, probably something about ObamaCare) and then said something like “Everyone who agrees with me, like this post.” I responded by saying, "I wish Facebook had an Unlike button".

Donald Trump's and Tom Reed's Weak Condemnation of the Charlottesville White Supremacists

Donald Trump's condemnation of the Nazi terrorists in Charlottesville was as strong as his condemnation of Vladimir Putin for interfering with our election and for expelling hundreds from the American embassy in Moscow. In other words, it was so weak it was almost nonexistent.

Here was his condemnation on Twitter

An Open Letter To Congressman Tom Reed: We Need A Special Prosecutor

Dear Congressman Reed,

I am greatly dismayed by President Trump's firing of FBI Director James Comey.  This reminds me of Nixon's Saturday Night Massacre.  This has the APPEARANCE of Trump trying to cover up treasonous collusion with the Russians to steal the elections.  Maybe Trump and his gang are totally innocent, but that is not how it appears.

How Congressman Tom Reed Can Help Clear Donald Trump's Name By Demanding To See His Tax Returns

Opposing Russian aggression was obviously important to Congressman Tom Reed during his campaign against John Plumb.  Take a look at the following Facebook posts. (Clicking on the images will bring you to the original posts).

 

Tom Reed, Sheldon Adelson, John Plumb, and Citizens United

Other than Donald Trump, who Congressman Tom Reed has endorsed, the greatest threat to our democracy may be the corrupting influence of practically unlimited money that wealthy individuals and corporations can donate to Super Pacs. One of the biggest poster boys for demonstrating the necessity of cleaning up our political system is multi-billionaire Sheldon Adelson.

Tom Reed vs. John Plumb: Who has the better plan for fighting ISIS?

I wrote a column last August for the Ithaca Journal calling on Congressman Tom Reed to rescind his endorsement of Donald Trump.  I pointed out that Reed had repeatedly criticized his opponent, John Plumb, and President Obama for being soft on Russia and that he could not logically maintain his endorsement of Trump while insisting we resist Russia's aggression in Ukraine.  Reed has yet to rescind his endorsement despite this inconsistency with respect to Russia and despite Trump's bragging about grabbing women by the pussy.
