ReaganBook Founder: Trolls Prove That ‘Facebook For Patriots’ Fills A Need

AP

Janet Porter, the founder of the conservative social networking site ReaganBook seems determined to get the website up and running again.

The “Facebook for patriots” went offline last month in order to implement security fixes that will “keep the site free from obscenity, pornography, and those intent on the destruction of life, liberty, and the family.”

According to an account by The Verge, the website was quite susceptible to trolls and quickly gave way to chaos.

But Porter told Fox News that the haters only prove that the networking site is necessary.

“I think there are some people that are threatened by freedom of speech,” she said in an interview published Saturday. “People are used to the silencing of all dissent. That’s not what this country is founded on.”

She still hopes that ReaganBook will “tear down walls of tyranny.”

“ReaganBook is putting freedom on the offensive,” she told Fox.
