(Natural News) In the latest wake-up call that Facebook, Google, YouTube and Twitter censorship is completely out of control, Facebook recently banned a post that shared a section of the Declaration of Independence.

The Vindicator, a small-town Texas publisher, was sharing text from the document when Facebook banned it, citing “hate speech” guidelines. Reports The Vindicator:

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.

Of course Facebook finds liberty to be offensive

No one is surprised anymore to learn that Facebook, Google, YouTube and other tech giants continue to ban pro-liberty speech. YouTube, for example, continues to ban my entire channel for no justifiable reason whatsoever. (I’m launching REAL.video as an alternative to YouTube, as you know, and it’s now functioning in a beta stage at http://beta.real.video ).

Meanwhile, Facebook has been purging large natural health channels from its network in huge numbers, practically carrying out a kind of “online ethnic cleansing” against nutritionists, herbalists, holistic doctors and Chinese Medicine practitioners.

After being called out by critics, Facebook reversed its ban and reinstated the post. “Facebook has apologized to a Texas newspaper after flagging a post containing text from the Declaration of Independence as ‘hate speech,'” reports Breitbart News.

Spineless editor of The Vindicator practically APOLOGIZES to Facebook, whines like a pathetic, powerless, obedient subject of the King

As all this is going on, the pathetic, spineless Casey Stinnett, the managing editor of The Vindicator, grovels at the feet of Mark Zuckerberg, writing, “…to be honest, there is a good deal in that passage that could be thought hateful.” He also goes on to applaud Facebook tyrants for restoring the post, claiming, “the good folks at Facebook restored the post that is the subject of this article.” (Good folks? Seriously?)

In other words, after getting banned for posting excerpts of one of the most historical documents our nation has ever known, this editor practically apologizes to Facebook for doing so, then grovel at their feet and thanks them for restoring his account. Does Stinnett have no idea of the irony he’s invoking while bowing down to the Zucker-King of Facebook which banned his post about a document that declared independence from precisely such tyranny and servitude? Did Stinnett even read what the Declaration says? The whole point of the document is that free men (and women) would no longer have to beg any king for permission to say what they want or live the life they want to live.

Stinnett even goes on to explain that he might stop posting the Declaration of Independence out of fear that Facebook might close down his entire page. “So, the removal of this morning’s post puts The Vindicator in a quandary about whether to continue with posting the final two parts of the Declaration scheduled for tomorrow and Wednesday. Should Facebook find anything in them offensive, The Vindicator could lose its Facebook page,” he says like a good, obedient liberal who cedes power to some authoritarian tyrant.

Get a grip, man, you’re an American! You’re a Texan! If you can’t find a big enough pair of cajones in your nut sack to post the Declaration of Independence in a public forum, then resign from your job, close down the paper and stop pretending to be in the information business altogether. It’s obvious you’re a pathetic liberal apologist pretending to be an historian.

I’ve had enough of these panzy, pathetic pretenders who just want to appease the tyrants at Facebook, Google and YouTube. If you don’t want to live in a free nation that respects individual liberties and the First Amendment, tear up your passport and emigrate to Venezuela, where I’m sure you’ll find the stench of mass starvation and death appropriately appeasing to your left-wing preferences.

Follow his videos, podcasts, websites and science projects at the links below.

Mike Adams serves as the founding editor of NaturalNews.com and the lab science director of an internationally accredited (ISO 17025) analytical laboratory known as CWC Labs. There, he was awarded a Certificate of Excellence for achieving extremely high accuracy in the analysis of toxic elements in unknown water samples using ICP-MS instrumentation. Adams is also highly proficient in running liquid chromatography, ion chromatography and mass spectrometry time-of-flight analytical instrumentation. He has also achieved numerous laboratory breakthroughs in the programming of automated liquid handling robots for sample preparation and external standards prep.

The U.S. patent office has awarded Mike Adams patent NO. US 9526751 B2 for the invention of “Cesium Eliminator,” a lifesaving invention that removes up to 95% of radioactive cesium from the human digestive tract. Adams has pledged to donate full patent licensing rights to any state or national government that needs to manufacture the product to save human lives in the aftermath of a nuclear accident, disaster, act of war or act of terrorism. He has also stockpiled 10,000 kg of raw material to manufacture Cesium Eliminator in a Texas warehouse, and plans to donate the finished product to help save lives in Texas when the next nuclear event occurs. No independent scientist in the world has done more research on the removal of radioactive elements from the human digestive tract.

Adams is a person of color whose ancestors include Africans and American Indians. He is of Native American heritage, which he credits as inspiring his “Health Ranger” passion for protecting life and nature against the destruction caused by chemicals, heavy metals and other forms of pollution.

Adams is the founder and publisher of the open source science journal Natural Science Journal, the author of numerous peer-reviewed science papers published by the journal, and the author of the world’s first book that published ICP-MS heavy metals analysis results for foods, dietary supplements, pet food, spices and fast food.
