Facebook doesn't feel that blatant death threats to Pres. Obama violate their "Community Standards"


are you kidding me

Yesterday I wrote this up: Please report this Facebook page: "We now have authority to shoot Obama, i.e., to kill him." Here are a few excerpts from that page:

We now have authority to shoot Obama, i.e., to kill him.

The authority to kill Obama comes from the 2nd Amendment of our Constitution.

I would be very surprised, if Obama does not leave Washington DC today (Nov. 19th) ...never to return, if he is not dead within the month.

U.P.R.O.A.R. (United Patriots to Restore Our American Republic) is dedicated to empowering our members to TAKE ACTION to RESTORE America to a Constitutional Republic as intended by the ORIGINAL INTENT of the Constitution of the United States of America. The Declaration Of Independence enlightens us to the TRUTH that it is the DUTY of EVERY CITIZEN to throw off the bonds of tyranny and to institute a government that will protect our rights. Inherent in that duty is the responsibility to be EDUCATED citizens that know our rights and understand that in order to ensure the continuation of Liberty Patriots WILL be called on from time to time to do UGLY things to SECURE those rights to the people, where they belong.

Please go to that page and report it, because, despite Facebook's apparent apathy, if enough people show them we're paying attention, maybe that message will eventually get through their thick, corporate, who cares what you guys think skulls.

Here is the response many of us got from Team FacePalmBook today:

Reason Credible Threat of Violence

Give Feedback

Needless to say, I gave them feedback. I reminded them that credible threats to the President of the United States should be taken seriously, and that their security standards are exceedingly low.

I also informed them that in the past 24 hours since I tweeted about this vile site, a huge number of people felt it violated Facebook's (and America's) "Community Standards" so severely that they contacted the Secret Service and the FBI.

This is but one more reason why I detest Facebook and only use it when I must.
