Facebook's Oversight Board Is a Hoax as Following Instructions Cannot Post Comment on Trump Ban


The First Amendment rightfully in the Bill of Rights comes first
For without speech, religion, press, assembly, or address nothing good only worst
The creators of the algorithms to access to social media they seek to deny
Are clueless to why the founders believed freedom of speech was a necessity on which we had to rely
Whereas Waters and Booker were able to tweet and preach in your face opposition to Trump
And all pretense of civility and peaceful argument and discourse dump
Never banned for a moment while Trump did not in any way incite
What Facebook did is far more effective than the Iron Curtain and it is not right
If Facebook really wants to prevent riots and violence, speech it should not curtail
It will lead to despair, hopelessness and the need for revenge to get on the violence trail
The best defense against lies or distortions or urging of violent acts
Is more speech to counter the lies, distortions or urges is to summon forth the facts
May be difficult when the press
Has become a willing partner to opposing views suppress
A populist movement is not a Medusa you cannot kill it by censoring its current head
Trump’s ban will sow the seeds of dragon’s teeth to move forward in ways Facebook will dread
75 million strong and maybe more will as one realize, Facebook is a biased luxury they do not need
Start agitating with their leaders and courts to break it up as a start to end its censorship greed
Facebook is wrong, Voltaire’s words still ring true even more so today
I may disagree  but I will defend to the death your right to say

Time for Facebook to end its misguided ban
We need more speech not a social media Iron Curtain strangling discourse in this land
