The ZPDA has been in the news after an insider reported that its employees had a habit of blacklisting stories of interest to conservatives from its newsfeed, including stories about the IRS scandal, Governor Scott Walker; the murder of Chris Kyle, and other topics.
But it isn’t just the news feed, the ZPDA also censors individual conservative posts.
Starnes’ interest in Facebook censorship may stem from the time he was placed in the Facebook penitentiary. You may want to make sure there are no kids in the room before you go on because the Fox News host’s “horrible” violation was a post mentioning four offensive subjects in the same paragraph. The proper nouns were: Paula Deen, Chick-fil-A, the NRA and Jesus Christ.
“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 Gaither 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.”
Mr. Starnes says he received a message from the Facebook police that said:
“We removed this from Facebook because it violates our Community Standards,” Facebook wrote me. “So you’re temporarily blocked from using this feature.”
OTOH, Pages calling for the destruction of Israel and inciting violence againat Jews? Totes OK.
