COMPLETELY Truthful Meme Earns Facebook User 30 Day Ban for ‘Hate Speech’

General Michael Flynn defense fund

On Tuesday, the owner of the popular “Wake Up America, The Original” Facebook page got a nasty surprise when she was informed that a meme which states the truth about illegal aliens was dubbed “hate speech” by the social media giant.

Moreover, she received a 30-day ban for the post, which simply read, “Illegals aren’t immigrants, they’re criminals.”  Below is the message she received (We removed her name from the dialog):

Additionally, we were told by her husband, she received a 30-day ban.

As you can see, there’s nothing about the post which is false, nor is there anything even remotely racist about the post, since no race of immigrants were specified.  Moreover, it’s a fact that anyone — of any race — who enters the country illegally is violating the law.  But recognizing that, at least to Facebook, is now considered “hate speech.”

But apparently, facts don’t seem to matter.  All that matters is that the meme isn’t politically correct and seems to have triggered an overzealous moderator or a rather aggressive algorithm.

Incidents like this are why activist Chris Sevier drafted the “Stop Social Media Censorship” measure, which has already been introduced in the Arkansas state legislature and is being considered by state lawmakers across the country.

That measure, if passed as written, would (1) prevent sites like Facebook from declaring posts like this one “hate speech;” (2) would classify social media companies with 75 million or more users as public utilities, and; (3) would give users a right of action that could see offending companies forced to pay a minimum of $75,000 for each incidence of censorship.

Incidents like this, by the way, were the inspiration behind “Banned: How Facebook Enables Militant Islamic Jihad,” a book published in 2016 by yours truly and American-Israeli Adina Kutnicki.

  1. Susan Duclos? Here’s what real hate speech looks like: “This post goes against our community standards.” It’s also a lie. Their “community” is neither diverse nor inclusive. Facebook has no standards because when they stoop this low, all “standards” are above them.

  2. Ok, you all cry and cry about fakebook TWITter and the likes, yet you continue using them like crack addicts. Thats what it is, is digital crack. You are NOT going to change them, EVER, with all your crying about how unfair they are. WHY do you continue using them? WHY do you continue to support them so they can continue their destruction of freedom? Oh but I need the exposure bla bla. NO YOU DON’T ! There are other platforms budding out there which are more friendly to free speech. Id recommend you move to one. Support someone who supports you, quit feeding $$ to the devil. It’s up to you. If your fanbase is true to their morals and ethics, they will understand the move and follow you! Or don’t you care about those things as long as you have ‘a following’? Give it a try, you might actually never look back and be thankful later you did. Worse case, you can always go back to the demon, evil always welcomes newcomers, or returning alumni.
