Facebook NOT like buttonAn author and activist says she knows firsthand about the censorship conservatives face from social media sites.

Brigitte Gabriel, founder and president of ACT for America, told American Family Radio she recently experienced censorship from social media giants Facebook and YouTube.

The censorship started when Gabriel posted a picture on Facebook of Siraj Wahhaj, the Muslim extremist who is accused a running a terrorist training camp in New Mexico.

"And I said, This is the face of a sick and depraved man who is training children to shoot up schools, and the judge who lets him out should be fired from his job because if this man kills anybody the blood is going to be on their hands," Gabriel recalls. "And so, for that, Facebook put in me what I call 'Facebook jail' where they suspended me for 24 hours."

Youtube has removed one of her videos, published in 2012, and given her video channel a "strike."

After three "strikes," she could be shut down for good.

"Basically it will mean it will silence your voice on the Internet for anybody to see your video. That's a problem," she warns.
