Now, Facebook Marks Declaration of Independence As “Hate Speech”

Now, Facebook has reached all new lows with its attack on freedom by actually deeming the Declaration of Independence as hate speech. Yea, you read that right and you know this is going to stop any time soon.

Here is more from Gateway Pundit:

The Vindicator, a community newspaper in Texas, was posting the Declaration of Independence in chunks, post by post this week to celebrate America’s 242nd year of independence from the British Crown when Facebook’s algorithms flagged it as ‘hate speech.’

Facebook subsequently apologized for the ‘error’ and allowed the newspaper to publish the Declaration of Independence in its entirety.

Per the newspaper:

Somewhere in paragraphs 27-31 of the Declaration of Independence Thomas Jefferson wrote something that Facebook finds offensive.

Leading up to Independence Day, The Vindicator challenged its Facebook followers to read the Declaration of Independence. To make it a little easier to digest that short but formidable historic document, the newspaper broke the Declaration down into 12 small bites and one to post each morning from June 24 to July 4.

The first nine parts posted as scheduled, but part 10, consisting of paragraphs 27-31 of the Declaration, did not appear. Instead, The Vindicator received a notice from Facebook saying that the post “goes against our standards on hate speech.”

Facebook’s notice then asked The Vindicator to review the contents of its page and remove anything that does not comply with Facebook’s policies.

The offending passage of the Declaration reads as follows:
