Facebook removes pages of right-wing group Patriot Prayer, leader Joey Gibson – spokesman


SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) – Facebook Inc on Friday removed the pages of right-wing group Patriot Prayer and its founder Joey Gibson, a spokesman told Reuters.

Patriot Prayer has hosted dozens of pro-gun, pro-Trump rallies and attendees have repeatedly clashed with left-wing groups in the Portland area.

One group supporter was killed this week after taking part in a pro-Trump caravan of pickup trucks that clashed with protesters in downtown Portland.
