Facebook is now the official web site that censors political thought. If you want to post liberal doctrine then Zuckerberg is fine with that. But there is hell to pay if you even think about posting anything that offends Zuckerberg's sensitivities (i.e., conservative thought). Especially if you support the second amendment to the U.S. Consitution. Zuckerberg is for the Bill of rights except when it offends him. Then he abridges free speech. So now we have a twofer. Zuckerberg against both the first and second amendments. He is a prince of a guy.
The post that riled Zuckerberg is one from Mathatma Ghandi's autobiography. Ghandi said
"Among the many misdeeds of British rule in India, history will look upon the Act depriving a whole nation of arms as the blackest."
OK, Zuckerberg doesn't agree with that. But does that justify his censorship of the quote and the suspension of the user's privileges.
Apparently Facebook's community guidelines include the censorship of conservative thought.
