President Trump’s longtime adviser Roger Stone has been blocked on Facebook and Instagram just days after he publicly asked the commander-in-chief for clemency and petitioned a federal appeals court to put off his 40-month prison sentence, his supporters charged.
“Facebook and Instagram have just disabled Roger Stone’s account in an outrageous display of censorship and because he dares to fight to prove his innocence. WE ARE ALL ROGER STONE NOW. @JackPosobiec @johncardillo @realDonaldTrump,” tweeted an account called “Age of Stone” that was tagged to the president, conspiracy theorist Posobiec and conservative journalist Cardillo.
Stone had posted a meme on Instagram Monday depicting him as a sword-wielding Spartan hero from the flick “300,” while showing federal Judge Amy Berman Jackson, who sentenced him, as Xerxes, the film’s evil antagonist, the National Memo reported.
Stone also asked a federal appeals court to delay his sentence for fear of dying in prison from coronavirus — and attacked Jackson for purportedly making “false claims” in her rulings.
“I recognize that the chances are overwhelming that the appeals court will remand the matter back to Judge Jackson,” Stone posted on Instagram, though it’s no longer available.
“But it is vitally important that the American people see all of the false claims in her most recent ruling and I want the president to know that I have, in good faith, exhausted all of my legal remedies and that an only an act of clemency by the Presideny [sic] will provide Justice in my case where I was charged on politically motivated, fabricated charges and was denied a fair trial with an unbiased judge, an honest jury and uncorrupted and non political prosecutors.”
