The liberal ‘tards at social media have deemed that the Bill of Rights only applies to like-minded ‘tards.
Hat tip to Natural News, a website that had its Facebook account temporarily yanked because they dared to use the following quote in violation of Facebook’s leftwing revisionist history:
“Among the many misdeeds of British rule in India, history will look upon the Act depriving a whole nation of arms as the blackest.”
– –Mohandas Gandhi, an Autobiography, page 446.
I mentioned “temporarily” because as soon as the shit hit the internet fan, Facebook backtracked. The same Facebook that allows death threats and sexist and racist comments against Republicans.
Paul Joseph Watson at Infowars has posted this:
Facebook is purging accounts that carry pro-second amendment and pro-liberty information in a censorship purge that has accelerated over the past few hours, with innumerable pages being disappeared merely for posting legitimate political content.

Incidentally, Brandon J. Raub (4th down on the list), was arrested after authorities deemed his Facebook posts ‘threatening’.
From the Washington Times.
Citing an obscure statute allowing the involuntary detainment of a citizen for psychiatric evaluation, the FBI, Secret Service, and local authorities swarmed Raub’s property to question and then seize him.
Without a warrant or recitation of his Miranda rights, Raub was handcuffed and taken into custody. After a quick hearing, government officials confirmed that Raub’s Facebook posts necessitated his detention, refusing to acknowledge legal objections that the words were wrongly interpreted. The former marine will undergo 30 days of evaluation at Salem VA Medical Center.
Hell, even muzzie Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, the Christmas Day terrorist bomber, got Miranda Rights.
That’s because the Dhimmi head of the DOJ thinks foreign enemy combatants are entitled to the same Constitutional rights as American citizens.
A federal judge ordered Raub’s release:
Circuit Judge W. Allan Sharret declared the commitment order granted to federal authorities for Brandon Raub’s arrest and detainment was invalid.
……Raub, the 26-year-old former marine, pro-liberty activist and Virginia resident, was seized by FBI, Secret Service and local authorities over Facebook posts allegedly “terrorist in nature.” According to court documents, a swift evaluation by social worker Michael Campbell determined Raub’s involuntary admission. The following day, a magistrate Michael S. Znotens ordered his detention at John Randolph Hospital. Raub was evaluated for an additional 15 minutes by Dr. James A. Correll and later ordered by Special Justice Walter Douglass Stoke to remain for 30 days at VA Hospital in Salem, VA.
John Whitehead of The Rutherford Institute, a Virginia-based civil rights organization, rushed to Raub’s defense, filing multiple motions later denied, including a plea preventing Raub’s transfer away from family and legal counsel. Once denied, another appeal noting Raub’s initial detention orders did not follow the law Chesterfield PD was filed.
Judge Sharret agreed the arrest and detention actions were illegal and will request Raub’s discharge. As the Richmond-Times Dispatch reports he was shocked by the failure of the magistrate to include in the order any grounds for holding Raub.
The posts in question are HERE.
Background on Raub: He’s a 9/11 ‘troofer’ who believes, along with a contingent of other conspiracy moonbats, that it was “an inside job”. He also has a fascination with ‘chem trails’.
If wearing a tin-foil hat was an actual threat to society, there would be a lot of kooks behind bars.
He also spoke of starting a revolution, rising up against the government, and the coming civil war.
Sound familiar? We had a revolution against tyranny 237 years ago because the ruling government violated individual liberties; seizing property, arresting people, punishing dissent, and enacting oppressive taxation.
When it comes to bona fide threats, the communist/socialist/anarchist/Islamofascist groups in this country spew all kinds of inflammatory shit on the internet, and commit crime waves in public. So far, I’ve yet to see a mass round up of these little miscreants to be hauled off to jail. Evidently, they don’t rate that high on ‘Big Sis’ Napolitano’s list of “domestic threats”.
Facebook ‘team members’ are sharp as bowling balls:
……In September 2011, Infowars reporter Darrin McBreen was told by Facebook staff not to voice his political opinion on the social networking website. Responding to comments McBreen had made about off-grid preppers being treated as criminals, the “Facebook Team” wrote, “Be careful making about making political statements on facebook,” adding, “Facebook is about building relationships not a platform for your political viewpoint. Don’t antagonize your base. Be careful and congnizat (sic) of what you are preaching.”
Really? Then what’s with all those political posts on Facebook from Obama and his team of propagandists?
