Facebook Employees Wanted to Censor ‘Hate Speech’ from Trump, ‘Threatened to Quit’

Trump ZuckerbergFacebook employees rallied the company’s CEO Mark Zuckerberg and even threatened to quit the company over some of Donald Trump’s postings, which they claimed violated the site’s policy on hate speech and community rules, a report from The Wall Street Journal has revealed.

The posts in question related to Donald Trump’s comments about a proposed ban on Muslim immigration to the U.S., which they said violated the site’s community standards, arguing the company had double standards in relation to Trump.

The argument went all the way up to Facebook’s senior management, with Mark Zuckerberg ruling that the company would not censor the content, prompting furious internal exchanges and leading to their community standards team threatening to quit.

Zuckerberg later told a Muslim man at a town hall meeting that he believed Trump’s comments did constitute hate speech, “but said the implications of removing them were too drastic,” according to people who attended the meeting.

Meanwhile, Monika Bickert, the company’s head of global policy management, told employees the company wouldn’t take down any of Trump’s postings because of its obligation to be impartial during election cycles.

    * refused to attend the National Prayer Breakfast, but hastened to host an Islamic prayer breakfast at the White House.

    I canceled my subscription to FB when on the one hand they started censoring posts critical of Hillary but on the other hand, one of their platforms ran a terribly graphic image – at the time of inner city violence even – of a hooded BLM dude, a la Jihadi John, slicing – with bloodspots splattering – the neck of a white cop. Ugly, ugly stuff. Incitement to violence if I have ever seen it. The FB crew have no shame to talk like this about Trump’s comments. They must all be a bunch of wet-behind-the-ears Marxists. The hell with FB.

    Well, that explains why when on FB, I click on “like” where people have posted statements supporting Mr. Trump – after about 10, a message appears telling me that “you have used something as it was not intended and before you may proceed you must identify…” – then they bring up a box of 9 or so photos and I must select all of the pix showing whatever they determine I must select: watch, waterfall, flower, tiger, etc. before I can proceed. That happens repeatedly. How is someone using something as “not intended” when all one is doing is clicking “like” to show support…aha that’s it the “employees at FB don’t want us to show support for each other”. Talk about censorship – sure wish a competitor would come out with something akin to FB so we could use that instead and let FB fall on its face. I am so angered by the lefts’ determination to rig this entire election, I could spit nails.

      Why are people so foolish and make Zuckerberg Rich with their posting, many of which will bite them in the AZZ at some point.

  • Irene Elizabeth Grooms

    FREE SPEECH FREE SPEECH FREE SPEECH

    • Bob

      Speech is only free if liberals agree with it. If not, it’s hate speech. A Conservative can be called “deplorable” by a Presidential Candidate and it gets limited air time. No bias showed there.

    • Retired

      Free speech Hell, it’s Making Zuckerberg rich .

  • Bobby Hopkins
