A member of one of Facebook’s boards claims that free speech is not a human right and can be squashed whenever it suits Facebook’s needs.

Former Danish Prime Minister Helle Thorning Schmidt, a member of Facebook’s Oversight Board, said “free speech is not an absolute human right.”

“It has to be balanced with other human rights,” Schmidt said at a Politico Europe event, the New York Post reported.

The board was created to give Facebook executives cover over politically hot issues.

This is the same board that ruled in May that Facebook’s ban on Donald Trump should remain in place.

“The oversight board includes five Americans and 15 members from Europe, Africa, Latin America and Asia,” the Post added.

Naturally, the foreigners put on this Facebook board do not agree that free speech is a right. Only Americans have such a legal right. And it is also not surprising that anti-American Facebook also agrees that free speech is not a protected right.

Facebook feels it has the right to determine who may and who may not have free speech. Unsurprisingly, Facebook also agrees that only leftists should be allowed to speak openly on its platform.

What a surprise, huh?

Mike Carey, the candidate backed by Donald Trump, won the GOP primary for Ohio’s 15th District, Tuesday, showing that Trump’s name is not the albatross Democrats say it is. Carey beat out a big field of eleven other candidates for the right to face the Democrat on the coming election. And many of his opponents were backed by big name Ohio Republicans. Carey will now face Democrat Allison Russo in the November election. For his part, the former president celebrated Carey’s win. “Great Republican win for Mike Carey. Big numbers! Thank you to Ohio and all of our wonderful American patriots. Congratulations to Mike and his family. He will never let you down!” Trump said in a statement. Carey was quick to thank the president and keep his name associated with Trump. “Tonight, Republicans across Ohio’s 15th Congressional District sent a clear message to the nation that President Donald J. Trump is, without a doubt, the leader of our party,” he said upon his win. Some of the others Corey faced were backed by well-known politicians: State Rep. Jeff LaRe, was endorsed by Rep. Stivers to replace him in his seat Bob Peterson, a state senator who has the backing of Ohio’s leading anti-abortion group, Ohio Right to Life Ruth Edmonds, who has a strong following among Christian conservatives and the backing of Debbie Meadows, and is an activist and the wife of Mark Meadows, Trump’s last White House chief of staff Former state Rep. Ron Hood, had the backing of Kentucky Senator Rand Paul Trump also campaigned for Carey having appeared in a tele-rally for the candidate. A pro-Trump PAC also put up $350,000 for ads for Carey. Carey won and by extension, Trump showed that his name is not a drag on the party. Follow Warner Todd Huston…

Democrat ‘Squad’ Member Omar Wants to Replace July 4th Celebration with Muslim Heritage Month

Minnesota Democrat Ilhan Omar wants to cancel America’s Independence Day holiday and replace it with Muslim Appreciation Month.

Minnesota Democrat Ilhan Omar and some of her “squad” members want to cancel America’s Independence Day holiday and replace it with an event celebrating Muslims who had nothing at all to do with the founding of the nation. “As we continue to see an uptick in anti-Muslim hate, it is important we recognize the resiliency and accomplishments of Muslim Americans with a formal resolution,” Rep. Omar recently claimed. Omar has and several of Dems have introduced a bill that would downplay Independence Day and overshadow it with an entire month of celebrating Islam. It was no mistake that Omar chose July for this anti-American campaign. Of course, July has already been designated National French American Heritage Month, so there is no room in July for celebrating a religion that has zero to do with the U.S.A. But other Democrats agree with Omar. “Muslim-Americans have played a major role in shaping our nation for centuries,” Rep. Andre Carson, exclaimed in his support for Omar’s anti-American idea. “Designating July as Muslim-American Heritage Month is a wonderful opportunity to honor the trailblazers who came before us.” This is an outright lie. Muslims have had no role in the founding of the United States. They had no role in the constitutional era, took no part in the Jacksonian era, did not factor in during the Civil War, Reconstruction, Civil Rights… in short, they did nothing to aid in the building of America. In fact, the only effect they have ever had on America has been negative. They kidnapped sailors causing one of America’s first foreign military excursions during President Jefferson’s era, and they were responsible for the largest terror attack ever perpetrated on American soil in 2001. And today, with their terror-linked advocacy group CAIR, Muslims are working to undermine the United States. Individual…
