Facebook Censoring SEALS to Protect Obama

Filed under: General — Patterico @ 9:45 pm

Big Peace reports:

Over the weekend, Facebook took down a message by the Special Operations Speaks PAC (SOS) which highlighted the fact that Obama denied backup to the forces being overrun in Benghazi.

The message was contained in a meme which demonstrated how Obama had relied on the SEALS when he was ready to let them get Osama bin Laden, and how he had turned around and denied them when they called for backup on Sept 11.

The fellow who posted it reports:

We created and posted this meme on Saturday after news broke that Obama had known and denied SEALS the backup they requested.

Once the meme was up it garnered 30,000 shares, approx. 24,000 likes, and was read by hundreds of thousands of people — all within 24 hrs. On Sunday, I went into the SOS Facebook page to post something else and found a warning from Facebook that we had violated Facebook’s Statement of Rights and Responsibilities with our meme. So I copied the warning, put it on the meme as as caption, and re-posted the meme to the Facebook page.

Here’s what Facebook found problematic:

Over time, people have sent me examples of annoying liberal postings on Facebook. Here are just four examples of things that Facebook has found totally hunky-dory:

Thank God there’s no double standard there.

FIGHTING BACK: Some SEALS are airing an ad about Obama and Benghazi during Harvey Weinstein’s pro-Obama ad film about Obama’s Courageous Decision to kill Osama bin Laden (one of Obama’s most committed supporters, according to Michelle Obama).

  2. Here’s a handy primer you can use to rebut O’Donnell’s stack of lies. It is worth your time.

  3. For example,

    “Democrats are unwavering in our support of equal opportunity for all Americans. That’s why we’ve worked to pass every one of our nation’s Civil Rights laws… On every civil rights issue, Democrats have led the fight.”

    April 9, 1866
    Republican Congress overrides Democrat President Johnson’s veto; Civil Rights Act of 1866, conferring rights of citizenship on African-Americans, becomes law

    May 10, 1866
    U.S. House passes Republicans’ 14th Amendment guaranteeing due process and equal protection of the laws to all citizens; 100% of Democrats vote no

    June 8, 1866
    U.S. Senate passes Republicans’ 14th Amendment guaranteeing due process and equal protection of the law to all citizens; 94% of Republicans vote yes and 100% of Democrats vote no

  4. I knew a SEAL. He was a high volume drug smuggler whose ship was raided. A hard core killer.
    The feds gave him an option. He took it.

  5. Sure, sleeepy. You knew a SEAL. Go tell that story in any bar in Coronado … I dare you.

  6. Sleeeepy went to a transmission shop. The mechanic told him that he’d blown a seal. Sleeeepy said, I was just eating an ice cream…

  7. There really aren’t that many bars on Coronado not sure why but I think people go over the bridge to get their drink on mostly

    Or I think there’s water taxis but I’ve never used one

  8. SPQR : Sleeeepy knew a “Seal!” He might have known a “Stolen Valor Seal” but I don’t think so. Sleeeepy would be run out of most kindergardens in this country with that tale!

  9. I wish the Canadians would club sleepy instead of seals.

  10. you know how you can tell when you’re dealing with someone who really is in the SF community?

    they don’t talk about it, and especially not with strangers. it’s called OPSEC, and it’s a matter of life and death, which is why our #SCOAMF making a big splash about OBL was seen as a problem, and rightly so, and later events proved.

  11. I’d like to corner sleepy and completely cover him with a large amount of Preparation H. I bet that would make the little hemorrhoid disappear completely! Awwwww, too bad, so sad, NO MORE SLEEPY!

  12. A sleeeepy drives its Jeep into the naval motor pool, white steam coming out from under the hood. A mechanic says, “It looks like you blew a seal”. The sleeeepy says, while wiping its mouth, “No, I was only eating an ice cream”.

  14. Dave at Ace’s:

    “Let’s ask America a more fun question. Would you like to see Obama campaign for another month?”

  15. From over at Blackfive:

    “…from retired ADM James A. Lyons who was commander in chief of the U.S. Pacific Fleet and senior U.S. military representative to the United Nations.”
    Somebody high up in the administration made the decision that no assistance (outside our Tripoli embassy) would be provided, and let our people be killed. The person who made that callous decision needs to be brought to light and held accountable. According to a CIA spokesperson, “No one at any level in the CIA told anybody not to help those in need.” We also need to know whether the director of CIA and the director of National Intelligence were facilitators in the fabricated video lie and the overall cover-up. Their creditability is on the line. A congressional committee should be immediately formed to get the facts out to the American people. Nothing less is acceptable.

    “He knows, given his former position, how much BS the current administration line is. And he is right — nothing else is acceptable.”

  16. Noting Elizabeth Warren’s picture, there is one thing I can definitely say: No dirty man is going to make a sex object out of her.

  18. I posted that SOS meme to my Facebook page. I don’t care if Facebook takes it down, I’ll just put it back up again. I don’t care whether Facebook suspends me, cause I don’t really use that service for anything.

  19. Lawrence O’Donnell’s cheeks look like that because that’s where he stores his reserve supply of bullsh*t.

  20. sleazy typed it wrong.It should read, “Sleazy blew a seal at Sea World!”

    Media Mutters (721840)

  21. I see nk beat me to it. Sorry!

    Media Mutters (721840)

  22. Actually MM, I beat you both to it in my #6 post. Nobody reads anything any more…

    Gazzer (5f8b88)

  23. So what is the reason facebook gives for that being against their policies?

    Do they even give a bu***hit reason?

    Can the seals fight back against it?

  24. Apparently Facebook has admitted it was wrong to pull the SOS Pac post.

    DRJ (a83b8b)

  25. I pulled down my Facebook page after hearing this! I’m on twitter now and hoping a social media company will create a similar site for social networking that truly believes in freedom of speech! I’m sorry seals! Keep speaking out!

  26. Judge Napolitano says FB does not censor a pedophile group on Facebook. They talk about things like havig sex with nine year olds. Facebook considers it to be humor though.
