DTT: This is one of the most sadistic and evil post’s I have seen on Facebook. The former member of the United States House of Representatives, and retired U.S. Army Lieutenant Colonel Allen West, posted a graphic (which can be seen further down) openly speaking about “extermination” of Muslims. The most sickening part of it all, 10.000s of people liked his post and reshared it.
This was clearly not free speech. This is clearly an admission of plans to commit genocide. If it said I don’t like Muslims or I don’t like Islam, that would be free speech. However, what was posted is not protected under free speech.
NY Daily News journalist, Shaun King was so disturbed that he wrote a post on Facebook on this matter. He wants Allen West banned for life on Facebook. Authorities in America should take action against anyone who threatens the lives of people. Here is what Shaun King wrote on his Facebook page:
Allen West, who was a United States Congressman and a Lieutenant Colonel (convicted for beating an Iraqi Police Officer), posted this graphic to his 2.5 million followers here on Facebook OPENLY speaking about the EXTERMINATION of Muslims.
He should be banned for life from this platform. That is a terroristic threat on the level of a Nazi from a man with significant influence.
It was shared over 10,000 times and liked by over 50,000 people BEFORE Facebook deleted it. It should not have taken that long.
This was not political speech. This was a direct threat and an egregious one at that. Also, it was him being HONEST. This is the honest interpretation of what Donald Trump plans on doing from a former congressman and long time military man.
This type of threat should be against the law. It is directly influencing anti-Muslim sentiments and actions in this country. It is despicable. Simply removing it is not enough.
Now, you must understand why so many of us alarmed at what Donald J. Trump intends to do. This is an emergency and a drastic public escalation of hate speech. He should be a pariah for the rest of his life for saying this.”
This following is the graphic that was deleted later on Allen West’s Facebook page:
An update: it is claimed that this was not posted by Allen himself, but someone else. If that was the case, why did it take Facebook to delete the post? Why didn’t Allen himself delete the post immediately? Why it take more than 24 hours after the post was deleted by Facebook for them to come out and apologize? This is what was written on Allen’s Facebook page:
” Message to our followers: Hello everyone. This is Michele Hickford, Editor-in-Chief of allenbwest.com. Last night I posted a meme without Col. West’s knowledge or consent which was inappropriate and crossed the line. I take full responsibility for this. It was wrong. I was wrong. It does not reflect Col. West’s beliefs. I (Michele Hickford) personally apologize for any offense caused – and especially to Col. West. to whom I apologize for adversely affecting his reputation, principles and values.”
