Conservative group ForAmerica is claiming responsibility for shutting down the Facebook page for President Barack Obama’s town hall meeting at the headquarters of the social media network on Wednesday.
ForAmerica’s Brent Bozell says he had asked supporters to post to Obama’s page, and that the overwhelming response made it crash, according to a report on DailyCaller.com
“Within a few minutes, the town hall page was taken down and labeled ‘unavailable,’ and it was down for at least 39 minutes,” Bozell says. “When it was restored, no new comments were allowed for several more minutes. We are only beginning to see the untapped power of this growing, formidable online army.”
Many of those who responded posted this statement by ForAmerica: “It’s not a tough choice, Mr. President. You have added $3.5 TRILLION to the debt already, the first thing we should do is repeal Obamacare!”
