Facebook is at it again. Although their commitment alternates from denial to a pledge of improvement, it seems that it is only getting worse.
Take a look at what they now consider “against [their] Community Standards on hate speech”.
Here is a comment from one of my readers. He posted it on March 29, and Facebook blocked it as hate speech:
Hamas is a Terrorist Organization designated by the Secretary of State in accordance with section 219 of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA), as amended. FTO designations play a critical role in our fight against terrorism and are an effective means of curtailing support for terrorist activities and pressuring groups to get out of the terrorism business.
Maybe Mr. Zuckerberg is not aware of that.
Facebook decides that telling that the State Department classifies Hamas as a terrorist Organization is “hate speech”.
Please don’t forget it.
I know that many of you told me, when I wrote a piece about my account being closed by Facebook, that you are not on Facebook anymore, that it’s a waste of time to be on Facebook, and that many of you are well aware of what Facebook has become.
But you must spread the word anyway.
Don’t forget Martin Niemöller’s “First they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out—because I was not a socialist. Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out— because I was not a trade unionist. Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—because I was not a Jew.”
It’s not about Facebook. It’s not about the Left. It’s about the First Amendment being under attack from all sides. Step by step. The same way islam is growing its grip on Western societies: step by step, some almost non visible or non important.
Because we do not fight to protect our values with a zero-tolerance attitude. We Conservatives are more of a zero reaction kind, and it doesn’t go unnoticed by those who want to destroy it, and destroy America.
