Occupy Democrats Facebook Page Posts Trump Death Fantasy
A large, radically leftist Facebook page posted a meme fantasizing about President Donald J. Trump in late April.
In the meme, Trump is looking at Press Secretary Sarah H. Sanders as though they are having a conversation. The text reads as follows:
“Sir, I had a dream that you finally got the parade you’ve wanted. There were millions of people lining the streets waving and cheering as you passed by in a large, black limo.”
“Was I smiling, Sarah?”
“I don’t know, sir, the lid on the casket was closed.”
Over the past few days, Facebook has faced significant backlash after banning prominent right-wing figures Alex Jones, Paul Joseph Watson, Milo Yiannopoulos, and Laura Loomer from its platform. All have been removed from Facebook-owned Instagram, too.
The company called the banned individuals “dangerous.”
Many prominent conservatives have pointed out an apparent double-standard in de-platforming those with conservative views, but allowing violent leftist rhetoric to stay.
“It’s interesting how [Twitter] and [Facebook] both seem more concerned with silencing non-violent people who hold political opinions they disagree with, than violent terrorist organizations and the people that support them. Is [actor James Woods] really more “dangerous” than Hamas?” Donald Trump Jr. said on Twitter.
It's interesting how @twitter and @facebook both seem more concerned with silencing non-violent people who hold political opinions they disagree with, than violent terrorist organizations and the people that support them.
