Tony Lee: Facebook Refuses to Shut Down Vile Anti-Palin Page





More great reporting from Breitbart’s Tony Lee:

In what seems like a double standard against conservatives, Facebook has not taken down a vile page depicting former Alaska governor and vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin holding a gun to her head while allowing users and "fans" to post messages on the page that wish for Palin’s death.

The social networking site has banned conservatives and conservative pages for lesser "offenses."

The website Pundit Press, which monitors Facebook pages that target conservatives, found a Facebook page titled, "I hate it when I wake up and Sarah Palin is still alive."

The page shows "a cartoon caricature of Palin holding a pistol to her head" and has over 3,000 likes. The page, though, claims it is not advocating Palin’s assassination.

The page claims that it is simply "a page about venting dislike over Sarah Palin" that in "no way advocates an assassination of Sarah Palin in any way, shape or form." The page’s ground rules include "no epic trolling" and spamming.

According to Pundit Press, though, the page has incited fans to post that they wish Palin were dead. In 2011, for instance, a 54-year-old named Mark Hamblett posted: "PS Sarah Palin is still breathing which distresses me."

As I noted a few days ago, if it weren’t for double standards the Left would have no standards at all. Read Tony’s entire piece here.
