Facebook Censors Blocks Me From Sharing Content and Removes
‘Natl Catholic Register’ Post From News Feed
One could say that I’m in pretty good company.
Earlier this week FOX News Todd Starnes reported that content that he posted on Facebook, was removed and he was temporarily blocked from sharing content until they “had a change of heart.”
It wasn’t all that many months ago the ‘Facebook Police’ threatened to shut-down Conservative Chicks on the Right for what censors claimed were posts critical of the Obama administration–heaven forbid that a politician is criticized.
Its really not clear what the ‘Facebook Police” found to be so offensive, vulgar, violent or so politically incorrect about the content that I wished to share from the Natl Catholic Register–Pittsburgh Bishop Zubik Rejects Common Core which they also removed from the news feed, unless now the Catholic Church is subject to the same scrutiny that many Conservatives are?
In January 2009 I wrote here that the China regime was cracking down on major websites and search engines such as Google and Baidu, claiming that its because they spread pornography and other objectionable material (such as articles about the 1989 Tiananmen Square massacre–I digress) that may corrupt young peoples minds.
Free speech in China (as well as on Facebook here in the United States) is essential in the pursuit of learning, every idea or thought is not an avenue of incitement, censorship only results in finding cracks in the Great Firewall of China.
Facebook censors working overtime to protect any criticism of the Obama administration and its policies, may want to note that behaving much like the China Regime Internet Police is really rather embarrassing.
