Former Texas Senator and prominent Republican political commentator Ron Paul has been banned from Facebook for violating "community standards." Paul stated that he does not have any idea what the violation was, and no further reason was given.

"With no explanation other than 'repeatedly going against our community standards,' @Facebook has blocked me from managing my page. Never have we received notice of violating community standards in the past and nowhere is the offending post identified," said the former Senator in his original tweet.

"The only thing we posted to Facebook today was my weekly 'Texas Straight Talk' column, which I have published every week since 1976," continued Paul.

People are engaged in speculation online over what the offense could be in this particular case. One twitter user had an idea:

The user referred to a video, which is still up on Facebook as of this writing. In the video, Paul discusses topics known to be sensitive for the tech media giants and prone to censorship, such as election fraud and how the lockdowns have been proven to not be as effective as was thought.

Paul is the latest in spate of removals of conservative accounts from Facebook, Twitter, and other big tech platforms that began in earnest after the storming of Capitol Hill on Jan. 6.
