The following offensive text was considered by someone at Facebook to be inappropriate. It was posted by Todd Starnes of Fox News:
“Rancher Bundy should’ve told the feds that those were Mexican cows – who came across the border illegally to seek better grazing opportunities. It was an act of love.”
Any late-night comedian would have delivered this line and got lots of laughs. It satirized all the liberal clichés about immigration and liberal double standards.
Apparently it was too much for the folks at Facebook. Starnes was told, “We removed the post below because it doesn’t follow the Facebook Community Standards.” Of course, he was never told what “standard” he had violated. This is classic liberalism.
Starnes went on to write, identifying the real sin against Facebook: getting out the message to a broader audience.
