Facebook Bans German Historian for Saying 'Islam Is Not Part of German History'

Too much truth

Last month, Facebook censored a German historian who posted a message about Islam's historic impact on Germany. Facebook banned the historian for 30 days, even though 76 percent of Germans agree that Islam does not "belong to Germany."

Michael Hesemann, a journalist and Vatican historian with an honorary doctorate for his work in uncovering documents from the Armenian Genocide, posted a message that Facebook said did "not correspond to our community standards." The offensive message was an accurate — if overstated — historical statement.

"Islam always plays only one role in the 1700-year-old history of the Christian Occident: the role of the sword of Damocles which hung above us, the threat of barbarism against which one needed to unite and fight," Hesemann wrote, according to NRW Direkt. "In this sense, Islam is not part of German history, but the defense against Islam!"

Facebook argued that it would delete any comment that "attacks persons because of their race, ethnicity, national background, religious orientation, sexual orientation, sexual identity, or physical impairment," the Catholic site OnePeterFive reported.

The truth is always the perfect defense. Facebook doesn't want the truth to be heard on their platform if it upsets anyone, they call it "hate speech."

Even though Germany claims to be a democracy it isn't and they do not have genuine free speech. Anyone who is critical of Islam or is sceptical of the holocaust will not be given a fair hearing - https://codoh.com

America is a Republic not a democracy or a monarcy we choose to have a Republic and elect a president every four years and George III we had enough of Kings and Royalties
