Facebook is a private company, so it can do what it wants with regard to content posted on it.


Not if they get themselves slapped with an anti-trust suit they can't.

Regardless, are you for the Internet Dark Ages? Do you REALLY want censorship as the norm?

I mean some of you people are nuts with wanting less free speech.

Censorship is the enemy of a free people.


What is your solution? Force private property owners to conform to what you find acceptable? Will you use the state to force your ideals?


That's the irony.

The Right: I should have the right to serve/service who I want in my business. No gays, no blacks.

Also the Right: How dare you ask us to leave for wearing a MAGA hat, or being a press secretary. How dare you, as a private company, take down our video.





The point of that?

Since we don't have the right to serve whom we choose, the neither should the others. You seem to be fine with a society where we can have it both ways.

If you want me to bake your effing wedding cake and participate in your wedding thus committing personal sacrilege because you think it's legal to do so, then you should have to do all of those other things you mentioned. But that's not how society operates. I get forced into sacrilege and you can deny me service over politics.

I like how people say this but in the same breathe a baker cannot deny a cake, right? Private business....

This is censorship of conservative politics. Bottom line. I wonder if the only way that Facebook would be allowed to remain after that stock hit was 'agree' to move even farther left.

Also, as far as imagery on Facebook, I can show things that are not 'historical footage you would find in a museum' but soft porn, pictures of dead fetuses...

People warned of the slippery slope...."weirdos" like Alex Jones...

So people are for more censorship.


If this is how leftists want to identify themselves, then fine.

While I can see why some people think those images may be over the top, the reality is that they are public images readily available in most history books. It is like that little girl running naked after being burned by napalm in Vietnam or when that colonel blew that guys brains out. Civil war pictures.

I don't see the big deal. They are historical images.

On the other hand, I can see if say it were something more recent from a more voyeuristic standpoint like seeing the after math of a drive by or car accidents, but then again millenials love Liveleak so can't see how those would be offensive either.

Corporations censor people every day. If I went to the "pride" festival at my job and said I was proud for sleeping with a sexy hispanic woman I would be fired and thrown out of the building, or if I said I don't like the fact that they hire way more black people then there should be per capita in our company, and I don't like them giving minorities and women opportunties instead of me I would probably be fired instantly.

Then conservatives yell at you if you say things like democrats, Hillary, Science, etc. I once had a Tea party psycho go ballistic at me because I talked about the wolves at the zoo, because he claimed that people in the country can't let their kids play outside or wolves will get them.

Here’s the difference: If you refuse to sell a wedding cake to one group of people while agreeing to sell a wedding cake to everyone else - that’s discrimination. If you don’t sell wedding cakes to anyone, that isn’t discrimination.

If you take down a facebook video by some people that includes graphic images of dead children, but leave up everyone else’s facebook videos with the same graphic images, that would be discriminatory. If you have rules that say NO ONE can post a facebook video with graphic images of dead children — nothing wrong with that.

Au contraire. Society today is very much forcing me to bake the cake and then banishing me to curb before I can say anything about it.

There's your problem.

You said public images freely available in history books.

When was the last time a good little progressive bothered to learn about history? It's icky and doesn't come with trigger warnings and they learn about all kinds of uncomfortable truths that violate their notions of how the world should operate, so they seek to ban it whenever they can.

You might have something there....Facebook stock just went up.

www.google.com...

If google, facebook, and youtube do move left...it's game over. Fox just can't compete with that kind of power.

werent you guys just cheering James Gunn getting fired for tweets he made 10 years ago.

Now its bad again? and its bad for Jones.

Oh but the clearly racist journalist should be fired.

You guys need to make up your mind on if youre going to be principled or not, if its bad its bad for everyone,
If companies have rights to do what they want with their business than they have that right with everyone.

Not just when you agree with it.

Welcome to America

Never cheered Gunn getting fired. If you have proof then show it or apologize.

Never even called for the racist to be fired.

I've defended Kathy Griffin.


I've pro gay marriage and think that bakers should bake them cakes.


I'm for free expression and have never been for censorship or firing anyone who says things I disagree with.



If you have proof then show it.

Otherwise you're simply boring me and I'll just ignore you from now on.



You no longer amuse me.
