“Facebook: Purveyor of Hate”
David Fischler looks into the Facebook double standard for what comes to count as hate speech worthy of censor, in this case, its defense of an anti-semitic Holocaust denial page.
Now, Facebook being privately owned can do what it pleases. But the fact that it can do as it pleases doesn’t mean we can’t criticize it for making obviously “anti-foundationalist” decisions that are awash in hypocrisy.
I don’t have much to add to what David writes, save this: it’s a sign of the times that those who evince a public skepticism over man-made “climate change” via human exhalation are painted as climate deniers and are to be drummed out of polite company; and yet those who deny the Holocaust — from which group of historical illiterates the climate change zealots took their condemnatory phrase of “deniers” — are somehow to be protected and embraced as a show of protecting “free speech.”
Up is down. Black is white. David Duke is real mensch!
