Facebook Fascism

Todd Starnes is a conservative at Fox News. I “liked” him on facebook and enjoy his comments.

Yesterday he posted one that was very humorous. I read it and chuckled:

“I’m about as politically incorrect as you can get. I’m wearing an NRA ball cap, eating a Chick-fil-A sandwich, reading a Paula Deen cookbook and sipping a 20-ounce sweet tea while sitting in my Cracker Barrel rocking chair with the Gather Vocal Band singing ‘Jesus Saves’ on the stereo and a Gideon’s Bible in my pocket. Yes sir, I’m politically incorrect and happy as a June bug.”

Fox News Radio reported, “Facebook blocked Starnes…The post generated hundreds of comments and went viral. But Facebook said what Starnes wrote violated their policies.” They also refused to let him post a daily Bible verse on his page.

Not able to post a Bible verse? What harm does that do? No one is compelled to read his postings. This is scary stuff.
