Facebook Bans Gandhi Quote

Chalk this up to the tolerant left.

NaturalNews.Com a website that appears to be geared to healthy eating, placed on its Facebook page Mohandas Gandhi's famous quote Among the many misdeeds of British rule in India, history will look upon the Act depriving a whole nation of arms as the blackest.

Facebook suspended their account. After the deed became widely publicized they reinstated it.

The lesson is don't depend on the totalitarian wannabees on Facebook to get your message out.

    What does facebook banning a page for a Gandhi quote have to do with liberals? You just look for any excuse to say something bad about them, don't you?

      It's more like in this great big cow pasture of a world you can't help stepping in their hypocrisy, intolerance and general stupidity no matter how hard you try to avoid it.

      Facebook is a huge supporter of Democrats i.e. liberals and their causes.

      These clearly do not include free speech and open debate.

        I'm liberal.....so I'm a hypocrite and stupid?

        Stop making bullshit! I see shit tons of Gandhi quotes on Facebook EVERY SINGLE DAY through pages I like and NONE of them get banned.

        You just go out of your way to try to make us Liberals look bad. How pathetic that you Conservatives have nothing better to do than slander others. You guys go far out of your way to make sure we can't voice our rights, so who are you to say who's against free speech and who isn't.

        This site for example - you post nothing but hate against liberals. If a liberal tries to comment, we get attacked by conservatives. We can't voice our opinion here without being verbally mauled. The conservatives are the ones holding free speech back - not the liberals.

        But then again, what should I expect from someone who quotes "fox" as one of their sources.

          Are you Facebook? Do you think you are Facebook? As you self-identify with being a liberal do you defend Facebook's banning of the account?

          I see shit tons of Gandhi quotes on Facebook EVERY SINGLE DAY through pages I like and NONE of them get banned.

          So why was this one banned?

          You just go out of your way to try to make us Liberals look bad.

          That's the point. I don't.

          If a liberal tries to comment, we get attacked by conservatives.

          Ponder this: is attacking a position you hold attacking you? Of course not. You stake out a position and someone takes issue with it or points out errors in it or completely rebuts it, that is not attacking you.

          Now, would calling you a bad, bad person (racist, sexist, homophobe etc.) for a holding a position with which one disagrees be attacking you?

          Of course.

          Who does the former and who does the latter?

            ONE bad thing happens and you say it's because ALL liberals are HORRIBLE and ALL the same and ALL want communism to rule and a bunch of other (to quote OUR VP) "malarky."

            Stop writing hate articles about Liberals, and maybe you Conservatives won't be hated as much.

              Nobody is attacking you. All we are doing is pointing out your ideas are wrong, and as long as we do that we will be hated by liberals because those who set the liberal agenda -- and this is not all liberals -- don't want debate. They want other people's money, and control over their lives.

              Just remember, though, we aren't hating you when we say you are wrong.

            No Rob, that's not "in other words" to the claim that when we point out that your ideas are wrong we aren't hating you.

            This is the problem with debating with liberals. If I disagree with  you, your response is that "I hate" or "don't have an open mind"

            Let's turn this around: Is everyone who disagrees with you wrong? If not why do you disagree with them?
