Facebook Threatens to Shut Down Conservative Site
Given the constant flow of foulness that emanates from Leftists, this is a huge double standard
“Chicks on the Right,” a popular conservative website, could lose its Facebook community after posting a critical message about the White House press secretary that allegedly violated the social networking site’s standards.
The controversy involves a posting on their Facebook fan page that referred readers to a website posting titled, “You Know What? Liberal Hypocrisy is Starting to Cause Me Actual Physical Pain.”
“Jay Carney can kiss my assular area,” wrote Mockarena, who runs the website with Daisy, a medical writer and adjunct professor of communications.
Both women asked that their true identities not be revealed due to possible security concerns. “I think people are starting to realize Facebook is not necessarily a safe place for conservatives,” Mockarena told Fox News.
She said she tried to log onto her Facebook page Tuesday morning and learned that access to both her personal account and “Chicks on the Right” account had been temporarily blocked.”
“We removed the following content you posted or were the admin of because it violates Facebook’s Statement of Rights and Responsibilities,” read a screen-grab she posted.
... the ladies who run the website and Facebook page aren’t sure how the Carney statement violates the social networking site’s policies. “There are pages on Facebook that are incredibly obscene,” she said. “There were ‘Kill Mitt Romney’ pages during the election that were allowed to stand.”
As a result of the incident, the “Chicks” have launched a new social networking site on TeaPartyCommunity.com. “The experience is very similar to Facebook,” she said. “We are hoping to drive traffic there because we know it’s a safe place.”
