An Ol' Broad's Ramblings
Facebook issued an apology Saturday for deleting a post by Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer that criticized President Obama over his administration’s new policy on prioritizing deportations of illegal immigrants.
Brewer’s picture and a statement that accompanied it were removed Friday from Facebook, apparently because they “violated Facebook community standards.”
If you are on Facebook, you know what a load of crappy crap crap that is!
Brewer, one of the president’s toughest critics on border policy, said the administration’s recent move to launch a case-by-case review of illegal immigrants slated for deportation amounts to an immigration overhaul “via executive fiat.”
“This plan amounts to backdoor amnesty for hundreds of thousands — if not millions — of illegal aliens,” the Republican governor said in a written statement. “We need to remind President Obama that we elected a president that serves beneath the law and did not anoint a king that is above the law.”
Is that, or is it not, the truth? I’d say, yep….she’s speaking the truth.
According to Facebook policy, moderators remove posts when they fall under the categories of threat, bullying and harassment, hate speech, graphic violence, sex and nudity, theft, vandalism or fraud, identity and privacy, intellectual property, phishing and spam.
Governor Brewer’s statement involved no threats, no hate speech, no nudity, so why did FB REALLY delete her post? Well, let’s see…. perhaps it’s because they have turned into Obama’s censors? Considering that they allow Jihadists to spew their hatred and calls for violence against Israel, I think they need to rethink their policies. The 1st Amendment allows us to disagree with the government, whether the left likes it or not. Sure didn’t bother that side to use the 1st to advocate violence the previous president, the murder of military officers, harass and bully anyone who disagrees with them.
