Republican Pamela Geller is literally only famous because she is a hateful, xenophobic racist who is very vocal about being a hateful, xenophobic racist. Now, Geller is going to be famous for another reason: she is suing Facebook because they banned her account due to the whole she’s a horrible bigot thing.
Geller, who is being represented by the equally awful American Freedom Law Center, is challenging Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act. This section of the law prevents people from suing Facebook and Twitter if the companies ban them from using the social media sites. This is entirely reasonable given the fact that the sites have a combined 1.4 billion active users, but Ms. Geller thinks it is totally unfair. After all, she just wants to spread her hate!
In a post on Breitbart, Geller explained why she decided to take action against the social media giant:
For years I have documented the outrageous bias of Facebook’s speech policies. Notoriously one-sided, those who oppose jihad terror, support Israel and stand against the most brutal and extreme ideology on the face of the earth (sharia) have been systematically blocked and banned. Just last month Facebook took down my page and blocked me after a devout Muslim opened fire on a gay nightclub in Orlando, Florida. Facebook said they took down my page because of their rule against “hateful, obscene, or threatening” content.
As a person who is frequently banned from Facebook because conservatives hate the things we post on If You Only News’ fan page and mass report us, I can definitively say that Geller is lying when she says this is “one-sided.” Geller obviously didn’t bother to do any research before filing her lawsuit and instead is certain it’s Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg’s way of censoring the truths about the scary Mooslims:
After the Orlando jihad massacre, they went into full damage control mode. Orlando showed jihad for what it is. They’re committed to obscuring that knowledge and making sure people remain ignorant and complacent about the nature and magnitude of the jihad threat.
They also banned my own account for thirty days. This has happened before — when I get too close to truths they want to cover up. They’re afraid these truths will get out, and that people will start acting to remove the feckless and traitorous leaders who got us into this fix.
Here’s an idea: instead of suing Facebook for not allowing her horrible bigotry to be freely spread all over their site, maybe Geller should try to change that whole vile bigot persona she’s got going on?
