Facebook Suspends Franklin Graham Over 2-Year-Old Bathroom Bill Post

This is just asinine.

Published

Facebook

This is how petty, how unfair, how extremely anti-American, and how oppressive Facebook is. The fascist-run service is now looking YEARS back into people’s posts to find “reasons” to shut down conservative users.

Christian leader Franklin Graham had his Facebook account suspended for a day over a two-year-old post in which he was announcing his support of a North Carolina bill that was set to mandate that people use public restrooms that correspond only to their gender at birth.

It was a legitimate bill that the state was legitimately debating back in 2016 and eventually it was even signed into law!

Yet, Facebook reached back two years into Graham’s Facebook account to lock him down over an actual law saying that his support of the bill went against their “community standards.”

In other words, it did not slavishly support the mental illness that is transgenderism, so Facebook shut Graham down over it.

Graham announced Facebook’s calumny on him on Twitter.

“Facebook is censoring free speech,” Graham said on his Twitter account. “They’re making & changing the rules. Truth is truth. God made the rules & His Word is truth. The free exchange of ideas is part of our country’s DNA. You can read the post that Facebook took down last week here.”

So, now Facebook won’t even let users advocate for legitimate laws if Facebook doesn’t like those laws?

What we have here is Facebook’s fascist little fantasy world of what should be and they are imposing it on everyone who uses their service.

This is the most anti-American thing Facebook can do. After all, political free speech is an American first principle and if Facebook is shutting that down, they are un-American fascists.

But there is another point to make here, too. It appears that Facebook is searching back years and years through every conservative’s posts just to find something to ban them over. This shows an obsession for banning conservative that really goes beyond the pale. It’s bad enough that Facebook bans conservatives over legitimate posts made in the here and now. But this level of persecution seen as Facebook carefully combs back through years of posts in a desperate attempt to find any flimsy reason to ban a conservative is incredible.And it show the burning hate in the heart of every liberal.

Battered Woman In Jail For Not Having Concealed-Carry Permit After Shooting Father Of Children Who Attacked Her

Published

on

A 29-year-old woman is still behind bars after shooting the father of her children in self-defense, all because she did not have a concealed-carry permit for the weapon she possessed. The man, meanwhile, has been released on bond. Police told the Herald & Review that the woman in question had a shunt in her head from a previous injury, thus a blow to that area of the body could prove to be fatal. In response to the assault, the woman shot the man out of self-defense. TheBlaze has the latest: The man was hospitalized for a shot to his right side, the paper said, adding that police contacted the woman who voluntarily came to the police station for questioning. Sgt. Chris Copeland told the Herald & Review the woman had several injuries to her face from the man battering her. The man was arrested and is facing preliminary charges of domestic battery and unlawful vehicular invasion, the paper said, adding that he posted $10,000 bond. But the woman — who’s not facing charges for the shooting — is facing a preliminary charge of aggravated unlawful use of a weapon for lack of a concealed carry license, the Herald & Review reported. She was being held in lieu of $75,000, the paper added. This same scenario happened just last week when a woman in Chicago was attacked by a teenager who tried to take her property. The woman was charged with aggravated unlawful use of a weapon because she didn’t have a concealed carry license.

Impeachment Articles Against President Trump Approved By House Judiciary Committee

Published

on

In a pair of party-line votes, the House Judiciary Committee approved two articles of impeachment against President Trump Friday morning. TheBlaze has more information on how things went down: One article of impeachment is for alleged abuse of power in his administration’s interactions with Ukraine earlier this year, the other is for obstruction of Congress during the House’s subsequent investigation into the Ukraine controversy. Both were introduced by House Democrats earlier this week. The committee voted on each article of impeachment separately, passing each by a party-line vote of 23 to 17, with Democrats in favor and Republicans opposed. Friday morning’s vote came after two days of heated committee deliberations over the articles, during which Republicans offered multiple amendments to the language, none of which were adopted. On Thursday evening, committee chairman Jerry Nadler decided to stop the proceedings and move them to the next morning, stating that he wanted to give legislatures time “to think about what has happened over these last two days and to search their consciences before we cast our final votes.” Republican Doug Collins slammed the decision, referring to it as a “bush-league stunt,’ saying he and his colleagues were not consulted on the changes that were made. Nadler made a few quick remarks after the vote, saying “today is a solemn and sad day,” and that “the House will act expeditiously” on the matter of impeachment. https://twitter.com/ABCPolitics/status/1205513763991900161
