Facebook has shut down a social media group organized for mothers who are opposed to drag queen story hours at local libraries. The social media giant removed the group 500 Mom Strong because it was deemed "transphobic" and in violation of Facebook's "community standards." 500 Mom Strong is based in Spokane, Washington, and was founded by Anna Hall Bohach, an activist who has long argued that drag is a misogynistic display and is tantamount to the grooming of young children.
“When I asked them about the half dozen other fake 500 Mom Strong pages that were put up by drag queens used to parody 500 Mom Strong, I received no answer and the pages are still active. There is also a fake profile, created by drag queens, using my name and information that has been reported multiple times by my friends and me that Facebook refuses to remove. I asked the Facebook representative about it and I still have yet to receive an answer,” Bohach told The Christian Post in an email on Thursday.
“They regularly publish anti-Christian and anti-woman rhetoric that Facebook refuses to take down. They use language such as 'c**t' to describe me and other women and call us terrorists for objecting to transgender ideology. They report us to the police [for allegedly] making anti-trans posts. It is beyond ridiculous that our page would be removed when theirs is allowed to stay up.”
500 Mom Strong has been permanently removed from Facebook for advocating against Drag Queen Story Hour. I thought President Trump was going to stop this sort of thing from happening? #FreeSpeechisDead @realDonaldTrump @EmeraldRobinson @activistmommy1 @JackPosobiec @RealCandaceO— 500 Mom Strong (@500_mom) June 2, 2020

This was the drag queen who read to the children at the Spokane public libraries. Such a great role model. pic.twitter.com/9Cym8BmKn6— 500 Mom Strong (@500_mom) June 5, 2020
