Facebook is denying my 1st Amendment right to use the word “douchebag.”
I can’t publish a boosted post with this picture and the caption: Keep your hands off my Hope and Joy, Donald Trump! It links to the url: douchebagwisdom.com. BUT, Facebook says it contains “foul language.” Requests for clarification have met with “Your boosted post is approved,” yet when I click in to my Analytics, it says the boosted post was “not approved” due to “foul language.” That’s censorship! What about Freedom of Speech?!
What’s the foul word, Facebook? Hope? As in “How could anyone be hopeful in these dark times of Trump?!” Or is douchebag the “foul” word? Personally, I think “Donald Trump” is the foulest of that trio. But why are YOU TOO censoring language?! Why are you banning my language while allowing Russians to use you as a TOOL to say the most ridiculous made up crap to influence my vote?!
Why are you taking my voice away as I fight Trump’s assault on 1st Amendment rights? Trump has banned the CDC’s use of these particular words: fetus, vulnerability, entitlements, transgender, science-based evidence, fact-based evidence, AND that terrible word diversity. No joke. Authoritarian douchebag move.
If you, Facebook, take away my right to call Donald Trump a douchebag when he’s clearly earned the title, you, too, have become one—a douchebag—and an accomplice to Trump’s assault on our freedom of speech.
Foul language? Not! Doesn’t pass the George Carlin TV censorship test.
Here are “The 7 Dirty words you can’t say on TV”:
“Douchebag” is NOT on the list!
So, Facebook, step-up. Support my 1st Amendment right to use your platform to tell my truth. We’ve been listening to Trump’s made-up truth long enough.
