That time I went to Facebook Jail for sharing the President’s Hate Speech
On Monday, I shared a meme that was going around. It quoted the words of President Trump, adding pictures which made clear exactly what he was saying. On Tuesday, Facebook blocked it, and banned me for 24 hours, calling it ‘hate speech’.
And the thing is, Facebook was right.
I mean, well, Facebook was stupid for not grokking context and blocking me. Perhaps someone in the Facebook PD needs a grammar lesson to learn what quotation marks are and how they work.
But they were right that this was hate speech, and without the quotation marks and context this image with these words should absolutely be banned.
And it came direct from the mouth of the President of the United States.
