This is the Passage of The Declaration of Independence That Facebook Deemed “Hate Speech”

Published

on

That’s right folks–according to the Facebook Storm Troopers, the Declaration of Independence contains “hate speech” worthy of censorship.

It’s not that it’s that surprising that the Facebook “community standard” bots hate liberty, it’s just that to learn that a post containing the text the Declaration of Independence itself was removed, the week of Independence Day, no less, is a step too far.

The Daily Wire has the story:

As a way of celebrating Independence Day, The Vindicator thought it would be appropriate to publish the Declaration of Independence on Facebook. To make the reading of it more manageable online, the outlet broke the famous founding document into twelve “bite-sized” segments and posted one a day over a period of 12 days, ending on July 4. But after posting the tenth segment, The Vindicator received a notice from Facebook informing them that the post “goes against our standards on hate speech” and had been blocked.

After the outlet complained about the censorship, Facebook restored the post on the evening of July 3, explaining that its automated “Community Standards” checker had incorrectly flagged the post. While Facebook’s relatively prompt reversal was welcomed, the incident highlights how information is handled on the platform and what types of expression can be blocked.

This is the passage of the Declaration that was so “hateful”:

He has abdicated Government here, by declaring us out of his Protection and waging War against us.

He has plundered our seas, ravaged our Coasts, burnt our towns, and destroyed the lives of our people.

He is at this time transporting large Armies of foreign Mercenaries to compleat the works of death, desolation and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of Cruelty & perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy the Head of a civilized nation.

He has constrained our fellow Citizens taken Captive on the high Seas to bear Arms against their Country, to become the executioners of their friends and Brethren, or to fall themselves by their Hands.

He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeavoured to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless Indian Savages, whose known rule of warfare, is an undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes and conditions.

The Vindicator has an idea as to why it might have been flagged by the Facebook bots, and if you guessed it was due to political correctness on overdrive was the culprit, you’d be correct:

While The Vindicator cannot be certain exactly what triggered Facebook’s filtering program, the editor suspects it was most likely the phrase “Indian Savages.”

Perhaps had Thomas Jefferson written it as “Native Americans at a challenging stage of cultural development” that would have been better.

Let this be a lesson to all of us: Facebook’s censorship is obviously entirely too out of control.

Save conservative media!

Riot? Insurrection?

Left-wing violence is not violence to the left. Rioting, looting, fighting back against cops – those people are the real patriots, they’ll say. But when a group of supposed conservatives are literally invited by cops into the Capitol building in Washington DC, it’s insurrection! Check out what happened on Friday near Seattle. Did you hear about any of this on the news? From KIRO7: BELLINGHAM, Wash. — Protestors broke into City Hall in Bellingham on Friday, forcing the mayor to be escorted out of the building for safety. Mayor Seth Fleetwood said it is impossible to ignore the parallels to the storming of the Washington D.C. Capitol Building on Jan. 6. CONTINUED: “It was unsettling,” Fleetwood said. “They banged on the door and we got word they had somehow broken it open and were entering, and I was advised to leave,” he said. Fleetwood said he was ushered out a back door and driven away from the building to his car.

Pro-Choice Protesters Storm Catholic Church In Middle of Mass, Call for Abortion On-Demand

Is there even a word for this kind of depravity?

“Two, four, six, eight this church teaches hate!” That’s what these crazed radicals chanted when they stormed into a Catholic Church like a pack of imbeciles. Considering Joe Biden is a “devout Catholic” – LOL – he’ll surely have something to say, right? This is not a story you’ll see on news broadcasts tonight. From Catholic News Agency: “Fund abortion, not cops,” said one of their signs. “Abortion on Demand. End Hyde Now,” said another, apparently referring to the Hyde Amendment, which bans most federal funding for abortion. At least two protesters wore vests that read “clinic escort” on the back. Police and church officials escorted the protestors outside, where some protesters appeared to make obscene gestures at them, according to video from The Columbus Dispatch. Friday marked the 48th anniversary of the Supreme Court decision Roe v. Wade, which mandated permissive abortion laws nationwide.
