LAURA INGRAHAM (HOST): You've had some run-ins before with Facebook, I know, on blocking various accounts you've had, even a military beer business you had, you give 10 percent of your profits to military charities. You're a triple amputee, Air Force veteran, and yet, Facebook's had like a, kind of an aggressive attitude towards you.
I know you've hired counsel, trying to fight them on this. Are you seeing any resistance to your postings? I've gotten a lot on my Facebook page, and I've sent them out to my friends, but are you getting any resistance at all in the social media community?
BRIAN KOLFAGE: Well, I'm -- I'm not allowed on Facebook anymore.
My company, Military Grade Coffee Company was outright banned, and Facebook executives told me I'm not allowed to use it. And they threatened my wife, they'd delete her account if they catch me on Facebook.
So, I don't use Facebook anymore, I've gone to Twitter and that's where people can find me. And it's just -- it's ridiculous, the way that these companies treat people, and, you know, Americans are just pissed off.
INGRAHAM: $9.7 million, it's one of the top GoFundMe efforts, in just three days, in the United States, for the whole year. Brian, we're going to be following this. Thank you for your service to this country. You suffered greatly for our freedom and you continue to inspire so many people, thank you so much. We really appreciate it.
