Facebook Censorship of Political Speech, or People Being Douche Bags?

Facebook Censorship of Political Speech, or People Being Douche Bags?


This morning, I attempted to log in to my personal Facebook account and lo and behold, the bastards locked me out, demanding I need to verify my account, something I have already done via phone THREE TIMES, and of course the jerks claim this is a "security precaution" to prevent spam, blah blah, but, the problem is, I've had this account since summer 2010, so, why now?

 Because I had already used my phone number for this very account, it was requesting a different phone number, as if people commonly have more than one fucking phone number.  So, I tried their identify friends in tagged photos, only to get those goddamn images that don't even contain people in them, so, how the hell am I supposed to know who the photo belongs to if there's nobody in it.  Nonetheless, I had to wait several hours to try again and was able to pass the identify friends test only to discover that my account was supposedly in violation of Facebook's rights and responsibilities due to the following image I created of Rick Santorum sucking on a schlong, labelled "Rick Santorum Sucks"..

After logging in to get the alleged violation notice and content removal notification, I was redirected to a page which I can not now locate that listed such things as copyright infringement, violence, hate speech, nudity and pornography.   So, let's break it down, shall we.

The image does not constitute copyright infringement, because I created the image my self.  Granted the image does contain someone's photo of Santorum which originally showed him sucking on ice cream, but, it has been altered and edited, which is permissible under copyright law's fair use clause for parody, satire and/or criticism.  The same goes for the use of the Fox News logo, therefore, it is not a copyright infringement, as this use is covered under the first amendment of the US Constitution as free speech, and as such, it is critical political speech, criticism and satire.

The image certainly does not qualify as hate speech or violence, so, the only explanation left is the fact that Facebook don't like Rick Santorum sucking dick, because there's a penis in Rick Santorum's mouth, or, some douche bag that supports that scumbag Rick reported it.  Either way, people should mind their own fucking business.  Anyone who supports Rick Santorum is a freaking MORON.

While we're on the topic of Rick Santorum and this image of Rick Santorum giving a blowjob, check out my video Rick Santorum is a Homosexual
