As if I needed another reason to not do Facebook;
A Facebook page calling for the death of Israeli Jews does not violate the social network’s “community standards,” according to multiple messages sent by Facebook in response to user complaints.
The page in question, is named, “Death to zionst baby killer israeli jews.” The page, which spells “Zionist” incorrectly, features an Image of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu as a vampire with blood dripping down his chin as he feasts on a child. It was started on July 25.
Individuals complaining about the page were greeted with the following message (screen captured below):
We reviewed your report of Death to zionst baby killer israeli jews. Thank you for taking the time to report something that you feel may violate our Community Standards. Reports like yours are an important part of making Facebook a safe and welcoming environment. We reviewed the Page you reported for containing hate speech or symbols and found it doesn’t violate our Community Standards.
Is my delicate sensibilities threatened by such talk? Hardly, history tells us that this kind of hate has been around for a few thousand years. And in a free country idiots can spout off pretty much anything they want. White Supremacists Sites want blacks killed, Farrakhan and his ilk want the same for whites and the internet gives all haters the ability to disseminate that hate to a wide audience. But what is hilarious is that Facebook has “community standards” at all. Hate is only hate if the correct segment of society is hated, anyone else and it’s free speech. Jews, Christians, right wingers, by definition they deserve what they get, they ask for it for just being, well, them.
I always thought the founder of Facebook was Jewish, not any more, his parents must be so proud.
Much like embracing climate change, eating the rich, lamenting income inequality and wearing your atheism on your sleeve, supporting the Palestinians and condemning the Jews is de rigueur, it separates the hip, the enlightened , the evolved and the civilized from those that aren’t. The Jews are just so Old Testament.
