Facebook says page advocating the beheading of infidels does not violate terms of service.Facebook: Page advocating the beheading of infidels does not violate rules

By:

Despite Facebook's rules prohibiting violent content, a page that openly advocates beheading anyone who disrespects the prophet Mohammed does not violate the site's terms of service, Facebook spokesman Fred Wolens told Examiner on Wednesday.
The page, "Behead Those Who Disrespect Our Prophet P.B.U.H," does not violate the rules, Wolens said, because Facebook has "different standards around images versus text."

"Under our terms, this Page does not credibly threaten a specific person or target a protected category," he explained in an email.

Robert Spencer of Jihad Watch wrote about the page Tuesday, calling it "real hatred and incitement to violence."

"It is not 'hate' when it's a Facebook page. It only becomes 'hate' when I report about it," he wrote.

At least two readers at Jihad Watch said they reported the page to Facebook and were told it did not violate their terms of service.

It's not the first time Facebook has ruled in favor of such content.

In April, the social media giant said a gruesome video of a woman being decapitated did not violate their rules against graphic violence.

Wolens justified the ruling by claiming that people were posting it in order to condemn it.

The news of Wednesday's ruling did not sit well with Diane Sori, a conservative blogger (thepatriotfactor.blogspot.com) who was banned from Facebook over a link to a beheading picture she never posted. The link was posted by an administrator of the pro-Sarah Palin page "Barracuda Brigade for Our American Girl! 2012."

Sori, along with other administrators of the page, was punished due to Facebook's policies that hold all administrators responsible for content regardless of the circumstances.

Sori told Examiner by private message that by allowing the page to remain, "along with all the anti-Israel, anti-Jewish, anti-Christian, anti-Jesus, and anti-conservative pages (including pages that call for the deaths of Sarah Palin and Mitt Romney)," Facebook was demonstrating its loyalty to Obama and, she added, "his far left, anti-American, pro-Islamic agenda."

Sori also said those who invest in Facebook stock need to know about the situation.

For some time, conservatives have bitterly complained about what they see as a double standard in Facebook's policy enforcement.

As a result, several conservative Facebook-like alternatives have come into existence. Tea Party Community, for example, has attracted over 125,000 users. Other sites include United Patriots and Online Friends.

A Facebook event also asks users to stay off the social media site on Independence Day, July 4.

Obama Ramps Up His War On America

Obama Ramps Up His War On America
PHOTOS.COM
The Barack Obama regime opened a new front in his war on America yesterday when he unveiled his plans to skirt Congress and cut so-called carbon pollution from existing power plants.

Most in Congress recognize the reality that the majority of Americans have concluded that anthropomorphic global warming is so much hokum and that any effort to further burden Americans with laws and regulations to stop something that doesn’t exist is a non-starter. But the collectivists, progressives and outright anti-human environmental lunatics that make up Obama’s inner circle don’t take “no” for an answer. So Obama says he’s going to regulate coal out of business.

Never mind that the first section of the first article of the Constitution grants all legislative powers to Congress; never mind that temperatures have not risen in 20 years, despite an increase in so-called “carbon pollution”; never mind that carbon dioxide is not a pollutant but is, along with oxygen, one of the two most important gasses in our atmosphere and vital to life; never mind that more regulations on energy will drive up energy costs and the prices of appliances, cars and machinery, and will further cripple the moribund economy and will drive more of the middle class toward poverty; and never mind that so-called renewable energy is not about creating renewable energy but is about transferring wealth, Obama is dead set on  his agenda to destroy the American way of life.

Conservative sites on FB get taken down but it seems NOT this...


Good news: "Behead Those Who Disrespect Our Prophet P.B.U.H" has a Facebook page!

This is what real hatred and incitement to violence looks like: the page is here. But note that none of those who are so exercised about "Islamophobia" and who smear our work against jihad and Islamic supremacism as "hateful" have a word to say about this. It is not "hate" when it's a Facebook page. It only becomes "hate" when I report about it.

A federal judge has finally selected a trial date for accused Fort Hood mass-murderer Nidal Malik Hasan -- July 9. We'll see if it actually happens. If you've forgotten that mass shooting, then the media had scored a point for President Obama. The Pentagon dismissed the terrorist attack as "workplace violence," the Obama media nodded in agreement and the massacre vanished from public memory.

Hasan went on his deadly rampage, killing 13 and wounding another 32, on Nov. 5, 2009. By the beginning of 2010, the networks were already in "sleep" mode. On the one-year anniversary, only NBC filed a story (that completely avoided the word "Obama"), while CBS had a single anchor brief. Amazingly, ABC offered nothing.

In the 2012 re-election year, this was the totality of news coverage of Nidal Hasan up to the third anniversary: nothing on ABC, one brief on NBC, and one news story on CBS. Coverage of this brutal terrorism on our shores would upset the heroic Obama-beat-Osama narrative, so the "new" media "reported" virtually nothing.

It's not that there weren't news events happening. At the end of January 2011, Hasan was judged to be sane for trial by an Army board. He was formally arraigned on July 20, but he did not enter a plea.

The judge then set a trial date of March 5, 2012. Then Hasan switched lawyers, pushing that date back further to allow the lawyers to prepare some kind of defense. All of these developments qualified as stories; they generated seconds -- if anything.

Then in July 2012, a judge held the "alleged" killer in contempt for refusing to shave his beard for alleged religious reasons. That legal mess went on until September, when it was ruled it was not a violation of Hasan's religious freedom to be shaved. Then Hasan's defense lawyers filed two appeals.

In mid-October, an appeals court ruled Hasan could be shaved. And the defense lawyers filed an appeal to the appeals court! Thus they prevented any trial before Election Day.

Break out the "Mission Accomplished" banner. But journalists couldn't find the time to ask, "How long does this mass-murderer get to delay his own trial?" It almost makes you wish the police had better aim during the crossfire.

The pattern continued. On Dec. 4, another court vacated Hasan's contempt-of-court convictions and removed the judge, Col. Gregory Gross, claiming he had not shown the "requisite impartiality" toward the mass murderer. Then they named a new judge, Col. Tara Osborn. This entire morass went ignored by most of the major media, kept firmly secured in the national memory hole. (You follow the news. Do you know that narrative?)

The amnesia was so severe that when the Boston Marathon bombers killed three people in April, several journalists echoed Anna Palmer at Politico, who proclaimed, "President Barack Obama no longer has an unblemished record in stopping domestic terrorism." One of the Washington Post's Boston stories carried this headline: "After a decade of plots foiled or botched, one success." NPR talk-show host Diane Rehm said the Boston bombing "has been described as the second most lethal event since 9/11."

Two months before Boston, ABC broke from the mold by reporting a story on "World News" and "Nightline" that one of the heroic police officers Kimberly Munley, shot by Hasan, felt "used" and betrayed by President Obama.

Brian Ross reported that Munley and other victims filed a lawsuit against the government for its decision to deny injured soldiers a Purple Heart, since this was deemed "workplace violence." Ross added: "Recently retired Staff Sergeant Shawn Manning, who still has bullets lodged in his body, say that means lower priority veterans medical care and a loss of tens of thousands of dollars in benefits." Good for ABC. Coverage on CBS or NBC? Zero.

In May, Scott Friedman of the Dallas NBC affiliate KXAS reported that while Hasan's victims can't get the additional pay and benefits from that Purple Heart designation, Hasan is still drawing his military paycheck. He's been paid more than $278,000 since the shooting, when the Army could have suspended his pay after just seven days. NBC's national staff couldn't be bothered on that outrage. Neither could ABC or CBS.

Military prosecutors argued that granting Purple Heart awards to the victims would prejudice jurors in Hasan's trial because it might signal the government has recognized him as a terrorist and therefore already criminally culpable. Obama and his Pentagon appointees have faced almost zero public heat over this decision.

All of the delays and all of the media apathy to date suggest that the Hasan trial may get all of the broadcast TV attention that Kermit Gosnell's abortion trial attracted: next to nothing.


Played Out: the Liberal Racists' "Uncle Tom" Card 
By: Michelle Malkin/ Townhall Columnist
 
Meet Ryan Patrick Winkler. He's a 37-year-old liberal Minnesota state legislator with a B.A. in history from Harvard University and a J.D. from the University of Minnesota Law School. He's also a coward, a bigot, a liar and a textbook example of plantation progressivism.

On Tuesday, Winkler took to Twitter to rant about the Supreme Court's decision to strike down an onerous section of the Voting Rights Act. The 5-4 ruling overturned an unconstitutional requirement that states win federal preclearance approval of any changes to their election laws and procedures.

Winkler fumed: "VRA majority is four accomplices to race discrimination and one Uncle Thomas."

This Ivy League-trained public official and attorney relied on smug bigotry to make his case against a Supreme Court justice who happens to be black. "Uncle Thomas" wasn't a typo. Denigration was the goal, not an accident. It was a knowing, deliberate smear.

After being called out by conservative social media users for his cheap attack on Clarence Thomas, Winkler then revealed his true color: yellow. He deleted the tweet (captured for posterity at my Twitter curation site, twitchy.com) and pleaded ignorance.

"I did not understand 'Uncle Tom' as a racist term, and there seems to be some debate about it. I do apologize for it, however," he sniveled. "I didn't think it was offensive to suggest that Justice Thomas should be even more concerned about racial discrimination than colleagues," he protested.

Holding a black man to a different intellectual standard based on his skin color. Accusing a non-white conservative of collectivist race traitorism. Employing one of the most infamous, overused epithets against minority conservatives in the Democratic lexicon. "Apologizing," but disclaiming responsibility. Sorry ... that he got caught.

Just another day at the left-wing racist office.

Rabid liberal elitists expect and demand that we swallow their left-wing political orthodoxy whole and never question. When we don't yield, their racist and sexist diatribes against us are unmatched.

My IQ, free will, skin color, eye shape, name, authenticity and integrity have been routinely ridiculed or questioned for more than two decades because I happen to be an unapologetic brown female free-market conservative. My Twitter account biography jokingly includes the moniker "Oriental Auntie-Tom" -- just one of thousands of slurs hurled at me by libs allergic to diversity of thought -- for a reason. It's a way to hold up an unflinching mirror at the holier-than-thou NoH8 haters and laugh.

We conservatives "of color" are way past anger about the Uncle Tom/Aunt Tomasina attacks. We're reviled by the left for our "betrayal" of our supposed tribes -- accused of being Uncle Toms, Aunt Tomasinas, House N*ggas, puppets of the White Man, Oreos, Sambos, lawn jockeys, coconuts, bananas, sellouts and whores. This is how the left's racial and ethnic tribalists have always rolled. But their insults are not bullets. They are badges of honor. The Uncle Tom card has been played out.

Of course Winkler didn't think it was offensive. Smarty-pants liberal racists never think they're being racist. In their own sanctimonious minds, progressives of pallor can never be guilty of bigotry toward minority conservatives. Ignorance is strength. Slurs are compliments. Intolerance is tolerance.

And when all else fails, left-wing prejudice is always just a well-intended joke. (PBS commentator Julianne Malveaux's death wish for Justice Thomas set the standard: "I hope his wife feeds him lots of eggs and butter and he dies early like many black men do, of heart disease. ... He is an absolutely reprehensible person.")

Back in her day, before the advent of democratizing social media, Malveaux and her elitist PBS friends could get away with such vile bile. But liberal crabs in the bucket, viciously trying to drag dissenters "of color" down, can no longer engage in hit-and-run with impunity. Conservatives on Twitter have changed the dynamic in an underappreciated, revolutionary way. The pushback against liberal political bigotry is bigger, stronger and swifter than it's ever been.

You can delete, but you cannot hide.

Op-ed:
General Carter Ham...the man to take the Obama regime down...but will he
By: Diane Sori

 
Point blank...four-star General Carter Ham answers directly to the President of the United States and NO one else...he does not work for the State Department and did NOT work for then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on the fateful night of September 11, 2012.

And today, General Ham testifies before the House Oversight Committee at a 'closed door' hearing scheduled to begin at 9:00 a.m. this morning (too bad the 'in-the-pocket' for Obama msm seems to be keeping that hush-hush). As the head of AFRICOM when our Benghazi compound was under attack, General Ham knows exactly what happened, and most importantly, he knows who gave the order to 'stand down'...the order directly leading to the deaths of Ambassador Christopher Stevens, Inform Officer Sean Smith, and ex-Navy SEALS Tyrone Woods, and Glen Doherty.

And General Ham knows, because while the attack was going on he just 'happened' to be in D.C. for meetings, and just 'happened' to be in the National Military Command Center, the war operations center in the Pentagon.

General Carter Ham, the man who became a four-star general in August 2008...AFRICOM commander forced to retire (just a few years shy of his mandatory retirement date) from a post with a three-year rotation after only serving for one and a half years, and with his replacement put in charge right on the heels of the Benghazi attacks... and replaced with General David Rodriquez (became a four-star general in September of 2011, on Obama's watch) who only served in his previous  position (Commanding General of the United States Army Forces Command) for 14 months instead of the usual three year rotation schedule...a bit odd if you ask me as this position is based out of the US, a desk job really, and AFRICOM takes in nations that are at the center of the world's most dangerous hot spots.

But NO matter as NOTHING can change the fact that to issue an order to 'stand down' there's a certain military protocol that's followed when an attack like Benghazi occurs...a specific chain of command for allowing special-forces to go in and rescue or aid our people.  And that chain would have started with SOCAFRICA commander Lieutenant Colonel Gibson who would have first contacted a desk officer, asking for that permission. The desk officer would then have to call Marine Corps Colonel George Bristol, commander of the Joint Special Operations Task Force-Trans Sahara. Then Col. Bristol would have to contact Rear Admiral Brian Losey, then Commander of Special Operations Command Africa, who then would have to contact the aforementioned General Ham, commander of AFRICOM, for the final go order.

This would be the chain of command designated by military protocol...but was this chain of command actually followed...or did Obama make that 'stand down' call himself or directly order General Ham to make it after the initial Benghazi briefing, because he knew a rescue team would wanted to be sent in.  And I believe Obama knew that he could NOT let that happen, because Ambassador Stevens could NOT be allowed to survive with the information Obama suspected Stevens had discovered about his guns and weapons running to the al-Qaeda backed Syrian rebels.

Conspiracy theory on my part...NO I don't think so for the pieces of the Benghazi puzzle are starting to fit together...and fit together for the simple fact that if there was NOTHING to hide why then all the cover-ups...why did Obama continue to lie to the American people for weeks about the true nature of Ambassador Stevens' murder when NOT even an hour into the attack the CIA identified the attack as a coordinated terrorist effort of al-Qaeda operatives...why the lies...why the subterfuge...and why all of a sudden is scandal after scandal being lobed at Obama...lobed at Obama to divert our attention away from the truth about Benghazi as none of the other scandals can lead to Obama's downfall...that designation goes to Benghazi alone.

Remember also that whistleblower Greg Hicks testified before the committee that special forces were ready to board a plane in Tripoli, and that even after they got word that Stevens was dead, Hicks said, “The Libyan military agreed to fly their C-130 to Benghazi and carry additional personnel to Benghazi as reinforcements,” including US Special Forces, but that a call came through from Special Operations Command Africa saying, “you can’t go now; you don’t have authority to go now."  Also, Special Forces in Italy, less than one hour or so away, suited up and ready to go, were told to wait, or got NO orders at all.

And so three more Americans were murdered after Stevens because of that 'stand down' order, and like I said there is only one person who can give that order, and that is the President of the United States.  But we must know NOT only who gave that order but the truth of why was such an order given in the first place...why were four Americans left to be slaughtered by islamic terrorists while help was close by for being left to be slaughtered is as much blood on this president's hands as if he pulled the trigger that slaughtered our people himself. 
 
I think I hit on that answer pretty well (guns and weapons smuggling to Syria), and that answer is indeed grounds for treason to be levied against Barack HUSSEIN Obama NOT only for 'aiding and abetting the enemy' but also for dereliction of duty.

America has a long and honorable history of never leaving people behind, and by willfully and knowingly doing so, as Commander-in-Chief of our military, Barack HUSSEIN Obama can be charged with dereliction of duty...a specific offense under United States Code Title 10,892. Article 92, saying that in times of war punishment can include sanctions up to and including the death penalty, and that in and of itself is reason enough for all the lies and cover-ups I would say. 
 
Remember, Obama had plenty of time to call General Ham at AFRICOM...hell, he just had to make a local call to Ham at the Pentagon...and issue the 'stand down' order without any witnesses, because for all intents and purposes, after he took the original call from the Department of Defense, Obama was absent when the major part of the attack was going on...claiming he had to get ready for his trip to a Las Vegas fundraiser the next morning, telling his people to 'handle it'.

But the bottom line remains that General Ham knows the truth about everything that happened that night...but will he talk...will he end an illustrious military career taking the fall for Barack HUSSEIN Obama or will payback be a b*tch for this miserable excuse of a president and those who orbit around him...those who forced this man into retirement to try and silence him.

It can go either way but which way is the million dollar question that hopefully will be answered today...and answered with the groundwork being laid for a charge of treason to be brought against Barack HUSSEIN Obama.
