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

FacebookTwitterRedditDiggStumbleUponTumblrLinkedInPinterestEmailShare

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.

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:

Report Date Yesterday
Owner
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.

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

Below is a screen grab of what some wretched extremist of questionable sanity named Everest Wilhelmsen posted on a reprehensible Facebook page (screen grab above) that goes by the name "United Patriots to Restore Our American Republic (UPROAR)":

FB page kill Obama

Excuse me?!

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.

Looks like a threat to me.

But hey, that's okay with Facebook, but when I included this photo to illustrate one of my posts, I was suspended:

Way to go, Facebook. As for "UPROAR," here is their "About" description (bolding mine):

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.

3,755 members, who apparently believe that they're "EDUCATED." In all CAPS! And who need to get ready, because they may be "called on" to do "UGLY" things, in all CAPS! Because, freedom!

I strongly suggest going to that page and reporting them to Facebook. I've done that.

And it wouldn't be a bad idea to report their content to the Secret Service while you're at it. I've done that in the past, and they've responded immediately and even expressed their gratitude.

This is just one more horrific example of the rampant hate speech and incitement to violence that have crescendo'd since Barack Hussein Obama, our first African American president, ran and then won... twice. It's vile, it's despicable, it's dangerous, and it continues.

And in the latest George #Zimmerman news...

FacebookTwitterRedditDiggStumbleUponTumblrLinkedInPinterestEmailShare

zimmerman trayvon misunderstanding smaller

Not that I want to devote another minute even thinking about Trayvon Martin's killer, George Zimmerman, but these two reports were fascinating.

Think Progress posted about how his own hometown is now banning guns for Neighborhood Watches:

Around the time of the shooting, other neighborhood watch members trashed Zimmerman for his actions on that fateful night. “In no program that I have ever heard of does someone patrol with a gun in their pocket,” the Executive Director of Citizens’ Crime Watch of Miami-Dade told theGrio. A neighborhood watchman added in a Wall Street Journal editorial, “George Zimmerman gives neighborhood watch volunteers a bad name.

That's a welcome step in the right direction.

Georgie, however, seems to have taken another step in the wrong direction. RadarOnline:

The soon-to-be ex-wife of George Zimmerman, the neighborhood watchman acquitted in the shooting death of unarmed black teenager Trayvon Martin, discovered a used marksman target riddled with 17 bullet holes nailed to the wall of the home the estranged couple once shared, after he was forced to move out. [...]

“This is the photo that Shellie sent to her lawyer and said, ‘Look at the subliminal message George left me,’ following their showdown in September,” a source with intimate knowledge of the situation revealed. “What else could a bullet-riddled marksman’s target mean?

Charged another source: “It’s really not that subliminal. A not-so subtle message, I think. It was clearly a threat... tacked up on the wall of their home office, right between the garage and the kitchen where the domestic incident took place.”

RadarOnline has the exclusive photo and more details, so link over if you'd like to take a peek.

George #Zimmerman or his estranged wife could face charges

FacebookTwitterRedditDiggStumbleUponTumblrLinkedInPinterestEmailShare

george zimmerman held by police in fight with wifeVIDEO ADDED:

Yesterday I came across an eye-opening post at ALECexposed: George Zimmerman's Criminal History Includes Alleged Violence and Temper (Audio and New Documents).

He has quite a history:

Zimmerman... had actually been arrested on police allegations of thuggish behavior: for felony assault on a police officer and violent resisting of arrest.

Additionally, Zimmerman's former girlfriend also filed statements with a Florida court that alleged that he had refused to leave her home, taken her phone, and assaulted her, that he had previously hit her in her face, and that another time he had thrown her down on the bed despite her repeated objections.

There he is,  Mr. Law Abiding, the self-important neighborhood watchman and self-appointed killer of "suspicious" teens who open-carry Skittles and iced tea. Here are a few of the sub-headings in the ALECexposed piece:

  • Zimmerman's Response to a Police Request to Walk Away: "Fuck You"
  • Ex Alleged Other Acts of Violence by Zimmerman
  • Zimmerman Responded to Domestic Violence Injunction by Claiming Ex Attacked
  • Court Issued Injunction Barring Zimmerman and Ex from Contact

Since the murder trial, Zimmerman has been stopped by police on suspicion of speeding... twice. He was warned once and ticketed once. He also showed us his classy side by grinning in photos taken of him at the gun factory that created the pistol he used to kill Trayvon Martin.

And of course, once again, Trayvon Martin's killer is a hot topic because of accusations of violence and threats. You can read about those here: "Oops! Police: George Zimmerman taken into custody after incident with gun."

Via the L.A. Times, where you can also see a short video from which the screen grabs above were taken:

Police in Lake Mary Florida are expected to decide quickly whether to charge George Zimmerman, or his wife, Shellie, with domestic battery, police spokesman Zach Hudson told the Los Angeles Times on Tuesday.

Officials could also decide to not charge either member of the estranged couple, he said.

This is definitely not over,” Hudson said. “Essentially, we are determining whether we charge on domestic battery” which he said carries a maximum sentence of one year in jail.

At a later televised news conference, Hudson told reporters that officials were also examining images recorded by Shellie on an iPad to help in the investigation. “We live in a video world, we live in an electronics age, and an iPad was being used to record the” events.

Per the Times piece, Shellie Zimmerman's version of events has changed, the police say they found no gun on George Zimmerman (key words: "On George Zimmerman"), witnesses claim they didn't see a gun, so "as of right now, a gun is not part of the equation."

If so, then why did Mark O'Mara, Zimmerman's attorney, say this?

At 1:50 "He was armed, the gun was holstered under his shirt and stayed there the whole time."
