Conservative podcast Major League Liberty was banned by Facebook today with no clear explanation given, but the creator of the podcast tells National File that the most recent subject they discussed was the mysterious suicide of Jeffrey Epstein.
Speaking to National File, Major League Liberty founder Louis Huey explains that they were given no example of offending content when their page was banned by Facebook, and that the group’s personal profile were banned for 30 days.
“They put myself and Logan in Facebook jail on our personal accounts, and they didn’t say what we did, they just said that we did something that violated community standards,” said Huey. “Then they immediately banned Major League Liberty.”
Facebook has banned our page with no explanation as to why.

Huey also explained that any news articles or memes related to Epstein have been taken down from their personal Facebook profiles.
“Any memes or any news articles that weren’t from CNN or MSNBC, if it was from an alternative media site, they completely took it down,” said Huey. “Now they’re going after my producer, who has only been working for like a week.”
“Anything Epstein related they’re taking down. It’s what we were talking about on the show on Sunday, so now they’ve taken that down too.”
Huey told National File that he has appealed the ban of Major League Liberty, and has not yet heard back from Facebook.
“Last night I sent an appeal at about 7:30, and they haven’t said anything yet.” Huey added, “We’re basically under attack right now.”
When reviewing the previous offenses from the Major League Liberty page, one item was an article written by this journalist in July, that Facebook considers fake despite the fact that evidence of the claims was provided via screen shots in the article.
In the days leading up to the Demand Free Speech rally in Washington, D.C., a user seemingly affiliated with Antifa made a series of violent threats toward the rally, threatening to attack attendees with balloons coated with wax and filled with muriatic acid.
I reported for Big League Politics:
Over the course of about 10 minutes last night, the “POUND ON YOUR BOY” account asked how the D.C. event is “coming along”, and referenced muriatic acid multiple times.
“I just want to toss as many balloons of Muriatic acid in the faces as many Proud Boys I can [sic]”, wrote the user, “I just want to blind as many of you c**k suckers are possible [sic].”
He continued making threats, and eventually concluded his participation in the Telegram channel with “We already have the Muriatic acid, wax, and balloons.”
Despite the screen shots provided in the article, Facebook considered it fake news, and penalized the Major League Liberty page for posting the article.
However, considering it was posted over a month ago, it does not seem likely that this was part of Facebook’s rationale in banning the page.
National File contacted Facebook for comment on this ban, and did not receive an immediate reply from the big tech platform.
