Facebook Chief Vows to Eliminate “Hate Speech”

“Facebook has launched a new initiative to crack down on hate speech and online extremism amid the ongoing refugee crisis in Europe, the company announced Monday. The Online Civil Courage Initiative aims to empower users to effectively fight extremist views,” Mashable wrote.

“Last August, Germany’s minister of justice called on Facebook to remove racist posts targeting asylum seekers; three months later, prosecutors opened a criminal investigation on the suspicion that Facebook failed to take down a wave of anti-immigrant posts on the social network, inciting racial hatred.”

Byron York: Questions for Chris Christie on Immigration

“Say there are four finalists in the Republican presidential campaign: Donald Trump, Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio, and Chris Christie. The first, Trump, has the most controversial and far-reaching immigration proposal in the race. The second and third candidates, Cruz and Rubio, have sparred at length over the issue. But what about the fourth candidate, Chris Christie?” says Byron York.

Rubio Tacks Back and Forth on Immigration

“Sen. Marco Rubio says people who immigrated to the U.S. illegally but haven’t committed any major crimes could be allowed to stay. In an interview airing Sunday on NBC’s ‘Meet the Press,’ the Florida contender for the Republican presidential nomination said felons shouldn’t be allowed to stay, but those who commit lesser crimes could still qualify. In this interview, he didn’t specify whether those allowed to stay would ever be able to become citizens,” Politico wrote.

Cruz Says Trump Should Have Fought Gang of 8 Bill

“Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz launched one of his toughest attacks yet against fellow contender Donald Trump in New Hampshire Monday night, accusing the billionaire real estate developer of being ‘nowhere to be found’ during the debate in Congress over whether to grant amnesty to illegal immigrants,” Fox News reports.

    So I watched this show last night on NBC called “Chicago Med”, and one of the subplots is about a young woman who is an illegal alien who has been in a major car accident and she is brought in to the trauma center and almost loses a leg. But before she is even fully stabilized evil Homeland Security shows up and next thing you know she is being wheeled out of the hospital into an ambulance for the long trip back south of the border.

    Really? Thousands of illegal alien violent criminals and potential terrorists are loose in this country and Homeland Security is wheeling accident victims out of hospitals before they are even stable? Sorry NBC, but I am not buying it. Sounds like typical open borders propaganda to me. I don’t know is this is a recurring theme on this show, but I won’t be giving them ratings again.

      If she was simply here illegally the chances are zero that she would be deported anyway. You’re right, it’s propaganda. Like NBC Nightly News on the subject of immigration.

  2. Zuckerberg is a Liar

    He’s the one with Establishment hate speeches to the silent majority’s FREE SPEECH. He tells that majority, “do what I say or else and keep your mouth shut”….[or else you're laid off?].
