Reinstates within 12 hours
As Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg toys with the idea of running for the Democrat presidential nomination, he’s been bombarded with accusations about his brainchild’s influence in the 2016 election. Part of his response is to begin going after Facebook accounts that publish items that “violate community standards.”
One such post was written three years ago by blogger Jon Sutz of Save the West.
Facebook suspended a user in March for critiquing Palestinians who force their kids to fire rockets at Israel.
Blogger Jon Sutz of Save the West found himself the target of a one-week Facebook suspension for a post he made satirizing Palestinian martyrdom, according to information he sent to The Daily Caller News Foundation. Sutz’s post consisted of a parody dialogue between a Palestinian terrorist and his nephews, who are reluctant to shoot rockets at Jews.
“C’mon kids, let’s go shoot off some rockets at the Jews!!!” begins the uncle in Sutz’s hypothetical dialogue.
The kids say, “But uncle, won’t they shoot back? Won’t we get hurt, or killed?” to which the uncle responds, “Well duh, that’s kind of the point, Ahmed. If they fire back, and you get killed, we know the ‘news’ media that we allow in here will show your mangled corpses to the world, and claim that the rotten Zionists are murdering innocent Muslim children again.”
Facebook suspended Sutz with a probationary 30-day ban should he violate the social media company’s community standards again.
. . . . “How ironic that Palestinian terrorists can post whatever they want, Islamists can post the most vile incitement and justification of >>>VIOLENCE<<< against Jews, infidels, gays, lesbians, Christians, etc., and Facebook either looks the other way, or at best, removes the post, but leaves them free to continue,” said Sutz to Facebook.
Ultimately, Stutz’s account was reinstated after 12 hours when Facebook figured out that it had “mistakenly deleted” the post.
A Facebook spokeswoman told TheDCNF that a member of Facebook’s review team mistakenly deleted Sutz’s post and suspended his account upon receipt of reports that the content violated the site’s community standards. Facebook had restored Sutz’s post, restored access to his account, and apologized to the Save the West blogger, the spokeswoman noted.
Sutz confirmed that Facebook lifted his suspension 12 hours before the one week period was set to conclude.
Here’s a crazy idea, Zuckerberg, develop a means of assessing posts and accounts before deleting and suspending them based on “user reports.”DONATE
