So it seems Facebook is now the arbiter of what is the proper thing to say about people in power but only the people "they" agree with.

"On Friday, C.J. Pearson, a 12-year-old conservative from Georgia who posted a viral video supporting Rudy Giuliani, discovered that his personal Facebook page was locked."

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.

Is it possible the suspicious activity was someone trying to hack his page? I'm not a big user of facebook so I don't know how all that works.

He has to be 13 to have a Facebook page, so maybe it's just something simple like the Facebook admins realizing someone was breaking the rules.

If that kid were alive when Rudy was mayor in NYC & about 4 years older I guarantee you he'd be singing a different tune.

Nothing to do with the fact that you have to be 13 to have a Facebook account?

^^^ agree wonder why poster said that.

I admire the way Mayor Rudy cleaned up the town and made it safe and clean to visit again. And as prosecutor he put organized crime in the crosshairs which no one had done before.

I am a liberal and even I know it is wrong what they did to him. This is not a liberal or conservative thing however, it is the new normal. Anyone who is not watching CitizenFour on HBO, check it out, it is a terrifying eye-opener on just how much the Constitution has been decimated and continues to be since the so-called Patriot Act.

No, it seems like Facebook is the arbiter of what is the proper thing to say on Facebook's private property. You understand that Facebook is a privately run website, right? You know... like City-Data? The owners, or their designated agents, decided what goes on a private website. Maybe you've noticed moderators in these forums, enforcing what they owners have decided is acceptable and what is not?

This has always been the case. You do know that, right? Either you are hopelessly ignorant of the way private property works, or you're simply being disingenuous in the hopes of fanning outrage. Care to tell us which it is?

Do you think I have any right to post whatever I want on someone else's anti-Obama blog? (hint - I don't). If I go out and post comments on the website of the RNC, or National Review, or Ted Nugent, they can execise my comments as much as they wish.

Why do you have private property rights so much, Jim?

From Facebook:

Facebook requires everyone to be at least 13 years old before they can create an account (in some jurisdictions, this age limit may be higher).

Pretty much explains why a 12 year olds account was closed.
