The Liars at Facebook insult my Intelligence and yours

Just after the Islamic Ter­ror attack on the gay night­club Pulse, Face­book, you know those guys who insist they are not cen­sor­ing con­ser­v­a­tives, decided to take strong action…against one of the most promi­nent oppo­nents and a one­time tar­get of Islamic ter­ror Pam Geller

When Bre­it­bart News and Geller objected they fol­lowed up by sus­pend­ing Geller her­self.

Just hours after they removed her 50,000-strong group, “Stop Islamiza­tion Of Amer­ica,” Face­book has issued promi­nent Islam critic Pamela Geller with a 30-​day ban.

Well appar­ently Face­book has dis­cov­ered that such actions directed against a per­son tar­geted for assas­si­na­tion by Islamic Ter­ror­ists in response to her cri­tique of the mass slaugh­ter of Gays by an islamic ter­ror­ist not only tends to draw unfa­vor­able press but really doesn’t play well with a large seg­ment of the population.

You spoke — you wrote, emailed, called, and YOU suc­ceeded in get­ting my page and my priv­i­leges back. THANK YOU and thank Bre­it­bart for rais­ing a ruckus. Com­mu­ni­cat­ing and shar­ing infor­ma­tion is the key to build­ing an army of Davids to defeat the enor­mous ene­me­dia myths and lies. Each one of my read­ers is a one-​man media orga­ni­za­tion edu­cat­ing those in your sphere of influ­ence. This is a war on free­dom of speech in the age of jihad and sharia. And Face­book is key.

Now this would be just another story about a com­pany back­ing off after a bad deci­sion but what really got my goat was this quote from Breitbart’s cov­er­age of Facebook’s volte face of the email Face­book sent to Pam after the rein­state­ment of both groups.

“A mem­ber of our team acci­den­tally removed some­thing you posted on Face­book. This was a mis­take, and we sin­cerely apol­o­gize for this error. We’re since restored the con­tent and you should now be able to see it.”

I don’t know what both­ers me more, the sheer men­dac­ity of that state­ment or the insult to my intel­li­gence required to expect me to believe it.

On the bright side it’s very nice of Face­book for doing their best to turn my deci­sion not to join face­book into a pos­i­tive virtue.

Clos­ing question:

Just after the Islamic Terror attack on the gay nightclub Pulse, Facebook, you know those guys who insist they are not censoring conservatives, decided to take strong action…against one of the most prominent opponents and a onetime target of Islamic terror Pam Geller

When Breitbart News and Geller objected they followed up by suspending Geller herself.

Just hours after they removed her 50,000-strong group, “Stop Islamization Of America,” Facebook has issued prominent Islam critic Pamela Geller with a 30-day ban.

Well apparently Facebook has discovered that such actions directed against a person targeted for assassination by Islamic Terrorists in response to her critique of the mass slaughter of Gays by an islamic terrorist not only tends to draw unfavorable press but really doesn’t play well with a large segment of the population.

You spoke — you wrote, emailed, called, and YOU succeeded in getting my page and my privileges back. THANK YOU and thank Breitbart for raising a ruckus. Communicating and sharing information is the key to building an army of Davids to defeat the enormous enemedia myths and lies. Each one of my readers is a one-man media organization educating those in your sphere of influence. This is a war on freedom of speech in the age of jihad and sharia. And Facebook is key.

Now this would be just another story about a company backing off after a bad decision but what really got my goat was this quote from Breitbart’s coverage of Facebook’s volte face of the email Facebook sent to Pam after the reinstatement of both groups.

“A member of our team accidentally removed something you posted on Facebook. This was a mistake, and we sincerely apologize for this error. We’re since restored the content and you should now be able to see it.”

I don’t know what bothers me more, the sheer mendacity of that statement or the insult to my intelligence required to expect me to believe it.

On the bright side it’s very nice of Facebook for doing their best to turn my decision not to join facebook into a positive virtue.
