Joe Henderson: Press the “like” button for what Facebook just did

Joe Henderson

I have a 45-year career in newspapers, including nearly 42 years at The Tampa Tribune. Florida is wacky, wonderful, unpredictable and a national force. It's a treat to have a front-row seat for it all.

    It’s amazing to me that you can make false accusations and have nothing to back them. They put out many lies on Trump and Biden, but let’s focus on Trump since every other word that came out of your mouth is all negative and an obvious bias towards Democrats and not CONSERVATIVE or REPUBLICANS. There has been confirmation of the majority of comments you’ve made to be DEBUNKED. Also, the lawsuits you mentioned; were dismissed because the Supreme court did not even bother to read them, not for the sake of due diligence. Keep convincing yourself that there is no voter fraud; I’ll be standing by to watch it bite you in the Arse. OH, and WHO THE HELL CARES WHAT FACEBOOK SAYS. THEY’RE CONNIVING LIARS AND THE CAUSE OF MUCH GLOBAL DEFAMATION OF THE USA.

    Joe, Facebook did nothing. That is a fact. What you are referring to is a decision by its oversight board (derisively called “The Supreme Court of Facebook” in a phrase that wonderfully shows how American institutions have collapsed in front of a tidal wave of populist digitization) to not advise FB to change its ban of Trump. You apparently were unaware that the group charged FB with being unreasonable and recommended it deal with Trump fairly. Not likely.
    As to the events of Jan 6, Joe, your claim is that the President’s remarks (“we love you”–a hateful thing to hear when addressed to people you, Joe, don’t love) inspired a riot and that he is guilty of some imagined violation of Americanism is little different from a claim that Paul Revere’s ride incited violence and that he should have been prevented from embarking on it. What do you think Joe? If FB had existed when Paul Revere rode out to Lexington, should they have banned him indefinitely? I’d really like to hear your answer. And don’t try to claim the Redcoats were less of a threat to our nascent nation. The handful of freaks who broke into the capitol were wearing buffalo horns, Joe. The British were carrying guns.
