Facebook blocks #Revolution hashtag on July 4th weekend

Blackout.

Facebook users are blocked from the hashtag #Revolution. The timing of the censorship is rather suspect considering this the 4th of July Weekend, a commemoration of the declaration of independence, which was brought about by the revolutionary wars.

If you search #Revolution on Facebook, you get the following message:

“Posts with #Revolution are temporarily hidden here. Some content in those posts goes against our Community Standards.”

Clicking the “Learn more” link on the warning redirects you to Facebook’s long page of Community Standards, not an explanation on why #Revolution is censored.

Even more confusing is that the platform allows you to include #Revolution in your post. What is the point of being allowed to type something you cannot see/search?

“Welcome to the re-education of America on Independence Day weekend…” Congressman Thomas Massie commented, showing the censorship.
