It looks like it's ok to have almost pornographic pictures,insults against almost every general citizen,stalkers and a ton of other questionable content but coherent well thought out postings in defense/support of people like Rudy Giuliani will get your page locked.
What does this say to the nations kids? I know, toe the party line or we will shut you up...

What is wrong with what this kid was saying? Was he promoting jihad or violence against anyone? Was he using language that would be found "offensive" using what's acceptable on TV nowadays as a guide? Was it hard to understand him?

This is one reason among many others that I do not participate on Facebook.

Aside from Facebook and it's users being narcissistic self-aggrandizing people who need attention, they should realize that FB is very socially liberal and politically correct. So it should come as no surprise that when push comes to shove, only certain types of free speech will be allowed.

But it is entirely plausible that someone turned him in for daring to support Guiliano.
Even if someone opposing his views turned him in he is not eligible to have a facebook page. Seems quite simple to me.

Heck, I don't think you have to have lived in NYC to realize he is an idiot. Truly as unAmerican as you can get really. All about self promotion and trying to line his pockets from blind followers.

Glad they yanked the 12 year old's page. Last I checked you need to be 13 to have one, so he was breaking the rules regardless of his posts. Maybe someday he will grow up and have a clue, but he is probably brainwashed. Much too young to know what is going on at all.

Oh, look - another rocket scientist who hasn't the foggiest idea what constitutes Freedom Of Speech.

Here's a clue:
Facebook is a private website. No one has any freedom of speech there, except for Facebook itself.

Does freedom of speech give me the right to put a sign for the campaign of the candidate I like on your lawn? Of course not. Does freedom of speech give you the right to put a bumper sticker on my car? Of course not.

And why on Earth are you babbling on about the government? What does that possibly have to do with a private company deciding what gets posted on their private website?

Nothing.
Nothing at all.

What's sad is your lack of understanding of both freedom of speech and private property rights.

Mmmm, yes, that must be why on a daily basis I see political rants by conservatives as well. Because it's so liberal.

God forbid he ever walks into a neighborhood down south where they will hang him just for being black. He'll learn then.

It was obvious ! But i'm surprised that other "left" websites didn't do that! Freedom of word, today is just a fiction and i'm not sure that now, i can't write everything i want!
