REPORT: Facebook Employees Wanted Trump Related Posts Marked as Hate Speech And Removed
The story below is part of the reason this nation needs a Trump win in November, folks. This is where we’re headed. If we stay on our current course, the left will brand all opposition to them as hate.
A Trump win would be a total rejection of that path and stop the leftward lurch we’re on, at least for a while.
USA Today reports:
Facebook employees tried to remove Trump posts as hate speech
Facebook employees pushed to remove some of Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump’s Facebook posts — such as one proposing the ban of Muslims from entering the U.S. — from the service as hate speech that violated the giant social network’s policies, the Wall Street Journal reported Friday.
The decision not to remove the Trump posts was made by Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, the newspaper reported.
Employees complained that Facebook was changing the rules for Trump and some who review content on Facebook threatened to quit.
“When we review reports of content that may violate our policies, we take context into consideration. That context can include the value of political discourse,” Facebook said in an emailed statement. “Many people are voicing opinions about this particular content and it has become an important part of the conversation around who the next U.S. president will be. For those reasons, we are carefully reviewing each report and surrounding context relating to this content on a case by case basis.”
This won’t end with this election.
The left isn’t trying to win an argument over policy.
They’re trying to make it impossible for anyone else to win. Ever.
