East Texas Man Claims Censorship by Facebook for Obama Comment [VIDEO/POLL]
Dustin Ford of Longview Texas recently had a discussion with a friend on Facebook regarding President Obama, and the next day his account had been frozen.
Dustin Ford made a post tagging a friend, the post was “Seizing the day with baby obama”, likening his friend to a liberal. The comment was not threatening in anyway.
Ford is claiming censorship by Facebook and violation of his constitutional rights.
Ford told KLDV News,
Our constitutional rights are being taken from us very slowly, however small this may be. I could understand if they wanted to censor something that could be viewed as violent, but this is not slamming the president. I was just likening my friend to a liberal. If you type the president’s name, are you automatically flagged to be reviewed? There’s something scary about that.”
