Facebook censors post exposing Obama’s gun grab after accepting ad money

Facebook-censorHow far is Facebook willing to go to stifle the conservative message?  On Wednesday, Freedom Daily said that after accepting $100 to boost an article about President Obama’s latest executive gun grab, Facebook canceled the post boost and took action against the article, which can be seen here.

This was after the article went viral, reaching nearly one million people.

According to Freedom Daily, Facebook claimed the post went against their nebulous community standards regarding the sale of guns.  Here’s what the social media site told them:

Your ad wasn’t approved because it promotes the sale of ammunition, firearms, paintball guns, BB guns, or other weapons, including knives, daggers, swords, bows, arrows, knuckle dusters, and nunchucks. Advertising the sale of weapons or leading to destinations where the business primarily focuses on the sale of weapons is not allowed.

Keep in mind that ads can promote advocacy or interest groups that help connect people who have interests related to these products, as long as it doesn’t lead to the sale of any weapons.

Of course, the post was not promoting the sale of guns or anything else — it specifically deals with the issue of Obama’s executive orders on gun control.

“It’s just another day for the left,  trying to silence people exposing their illegal activities,” Freedom Daily added.

Meanwhile, profane threats of violence and death are apparently just fine with Zuckerberg’s minions.  What else can you expect from people who think a picture of a lilac tree is pornography?

Personally, I’m glad Zuckerberg and Co. don’t make cars…
