The silencing of dissent is already underway. Since the election I’ve made it a point to engage with the people who follow my congressman on social media. Now I’ve been banned from both Dave Brat’s campaign and official Facebook pages. I never harassed anyone, used vulgar language, or called anyone names. I only provided another view and provided links. My goal was to engage with his supporters. Now his staff has cut off my access. This is not ok.
