Former Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX) has been banned from running his own Facebook page, according to reports.

The Texas Republican says he was blocked by the social media platform on Monday without explanation.

The libertarian figurehead took to Twitter to post a screenshot of a message Facebook sent to him.

"With no explanation other than ‘repeatedly going against our community standards,’ @Facebook has blocked me from managing my page," Paul tweeted.

"Never have we received notice of violating community standards in the past and nowhere is the offending post identified.”

Paul said he hadn't shared anything other than a link to his weekly column.

Facebook’s boilerplate censorship message to Paul declares:

“Due to repeatedly going against our Community Standard, you’re temporarily blocked from creating new Pages and managing your existing pages.

"Review our Community Standards to see what’s a violation on Facebook."

Facebook’s message to Paul did not include any specific information identifying what content was violative of its “community standards” or how.

The Facebook employee(s) who decided to restrict Paul’s access to his page was not identified.

According to Breitbart, Facebook’s restriction of Paul’s access to its platform is the latest example of a broader pattern of left-wing censorship driven by Big Tech.

Kelley Paul, the wife of Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY), highlighted Twitter’s arbitrary application of its own nebulous terms of service on Sunday when she criticized the left-wing digital platform for not removing threats against her husband.

“Hey @jack, remember how for the last three years you have allowed thousands of hateful tweets celebrating my husband’s assault and encouraging more violence against him? I do,” wrote Paul’s wife in a tweet:

On Monday, Axios reported that Facebook would halt “political spending” following last week’s unrest on Capitol Hill.

Axios opted against capturing and quantifying Facebook’s left-wing political censorship and advocacy as a monetary contribution amounting to “political spending” benefiting Democrats.
