Facebook suspends account of former military K-9 handler who said he’s not voting for Clinton

Facebook suspendsIn late July, Eric Bonner, a Facebook user who said he served as a K-9 handler in the military, explained in a Facebook post that he’s not voting for Democratic Party nominee Hillary Clinton.  After the post got a lot of attention, he woke up to find his account had been suspended until he could verify his identity.

Bonner recalled his experiences as a handler in the service, and said he got to meet former President George W. Bush, Barack Obama and then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.  Clinton, he said, even spoke to him once, and the encounter was, shall we say, memorable.

“Man, who’d you piss off?” Bush asked before giving him a “high five.”

“What the hell kind of dog is that?!” Obama asked as he left his plane in Turkey.

Hillary’s reaction, however, was quite different.

“Get that f*****g dog away from me,” he recalled her saying.

“Then she turns to her Security Detail and berates them up and down about why that animal was in her quarters,” Bonner wrote.  “For the next 20 minutes while I sit there waiting to be released she lays into her detail, slamming the door in their faces when she’s done.”

According to Bonner, the detail lead apologized to him and released him.

“I apologize to him for getting him in trouble,” he added.

“Happens every day, brother,” the lead reportedly said.

Hillary, Bonner concluded, “doesn’t care about anyone but Hillary.”

He later wrote:

Facebook suspended my account until my name could be Verified. The timing of it was interesting. They wanted me to provide government ID. Which ultimately I did not end up providing. End Result? As you can see my profile is back up and running. However, I feel like this won’t be the end of this type of “Contact.”

Incidents like this, by the way, are the reason Adina Kutnicki, an investigative journalist based in Israel, and I wrote, “Banned: How Facebook enables militant Islamic jihad.”  That book, endorsed by Pamela Geller, president of the American Freedom Defense Initiative, is set to be available this fall.
