Facebook bans Ghandi quote as part of revisionist history purge
The Natural News website ^ | 12/27/2012 | Mike Adams The Health Ranger

Posted on 12/29/2012 11:20:37 AM PST by John S Mosby

(NaturalNews) The reports are absolutely true. Facebook suspended the Natural News account earlier today after we posted an historical quote from Mohandas Gandhi. The quote reads:

"Among the many misdeeds of British rule in India, history will look upon the Act depriving a whole nation of arms as the blackest." - Mohandas Gandhi, an Autobiography, page 446.

This historical quote was apparently too much for Facebook's censors to bear. They suspended our account and gave us a "final warning" that one more violation of their so-called "community guidelines" would result in our account being permanently deactivated.

They then demanded we send them a color copy of a "government issued identification" in order to reactivate our account. Our account was removed from suspension just minutes before InfoWars posted its article on this Facebook censorship, and the Facebook page is now functioning at: www.Facebook.com/NaturalNews

Once again, the "free" data mining crony capitalist pals of obamao and the neo-socialist marxists, demonstrates their "community standards". Facebook tried to cover up their move against Natural News when they discovered that Alex Jone's Infowars had already revealed their actions to their membership- they restored NN's account,but too late- the cat's out of the bag.

This action from facebook, DESPITE the fact that hundreds of facebook accounts have advocated murdering NRA members, by name and executives by name. This is the new "nationalist" socialist party the democrats, at work. Eliminating rights, re-distributing for "fairness" and "fundamentally changing" the US from a Constitutional Republic.

If Facebook is so rotten, why is Natural News (whatever that is) even there?

In the soviet union it was the government that took care of censuring speech and changing the history books.

In the USA, the government does it by proxy: google, facebook, yahoo and all the other a$$-kissing sycophants do it for free.

Others seem to have posted the quote and not had it removed.

I think it may have something to do with Natural News.

Isn't this what Obama and Feinstein want for America? Will anything the Senator and the president want in this bill do more or less to protect our schools (holding pens)? What happens when people are disarmed? Only the bad people will have arms and of course the presidents shadow army............Our Founders knew what tyranny can do therefore gave us the Second Amendment which allows us to protect ourselves from power crazed people like Obama, Clintons, Feinstein, George Soros, Islam and their "Brother hood. It has never been more true....Freedom Isn't Free!!!

Not sure you get it— this is a revelation to the “natural food” nouveau hippies who voted for obama—assured that their “business” would not be hurt by the progressive agenda. There is also a subset of the “natural foods” types who are discovering “natural” non processed foods from hunting. Like Whole Foods with rifles in the woods vs. eating at bigmacs. Think of it— hippies in the woods, shooting squirrels (like a revival of Foxfire). Ghandi, their hero, with a gun. This is hilarious, and tragic at the same time, as they also learn that Martin Luther King had an “arsenal” of firearms, was a registered Repub, and that there are black NRA members (and GOA too).

The short answer—Natural News markets with facebook to uh, a broader range of granola crunchers. Many of whom are discovering conservatism the hard way, apparently.

BTW this is not some blog I’m connected with. Posted it as diagnostic observation for FReepers. The worm turns.

It is known the Obama Aministration has paid operatives who infiltrate sites like Free Republic and cause contention through smears, insults and disinformation.

How do we know that you're not one of them? I've been reading Free Republic for over a decade and have seen quite a variety of opinions from members. It seems to me that the best way to destroy Free Republic is to start calling for witch hunts based on a couple of comments you disagree with.

I’ll have to check out that Natural News site... it sounds worthwhile.

I don’t know what got up Facebook’s backside, but the Ghandi quote is, in fact, being taken out of context. Ghandi was talking about the fact that Britain left India without a military when it was dangerously close to losing WWI to the Germans. This would have left India unable to defend itself from German takeover. When he talks about “depriving a whol nation,” he was actually referring to the nation of India, not its civilian population. Ghandi himself had no interest in owning guns or promoting personal gun ownership. Again, even though the quote is being misused, it seems like a pretty minor issue to complain about.

This is true my liege, to a limited extent. It being a public company, one would think that calling for the murder of individuals, by name and by membership in an organization— would not pass the “censors” (or their lawyers) of “community standards”. Like yelling “fire” in a theater, the First Amendment has been proscribed what this “speech” may be, except apparently at facebook- one of the proxy groups monitoring the people for obamaomau and company.

Facebook is actually a great tool. Too many people don’t know how to use the tool for the purpose as with everything else. It has good and bad involved in it. However, I think overall it is a great tool for keeping up with family and friends. Why put stupid political crap in it anyway.

Which “truther”, obamaomau’s birth certificate or 9/11?

Not aware of this as some banned org. See lots of InfoWars here— lots.

However, any and all of this is of notice when the right to keep and bear arms is being challenged, and the “hero” of the supposedly pacifistic Left, M. Gandhi, is quoted from HIS revolution against British tyranny (the same Britain that neccessitated our independence and right to keep and bear arms). This could not be the truth here, right? Quelle horreur!

“...witch hunts...”

You have a good point.

I’ve been coming to Free Republic a long time, and have used two different names due to a move from one locale to another, and one of my pet issues is picking unnecessary disputes with other posters.

I don’t care if someone else’s spelling or grammar is terrible, or if they have an opinion different from mine, but I care very much that they NOT attack another freeper from informing the rest of us about creeping government censorship, which is occurring incrementally, and the attack is phrased in ‘snarky’ terms.

Right now banks are collapsing in Spain. These banks received huge loans from banks in England and Germany, to which U.S. banks have lent huge sums, and all the collateral is hypothecated (the same collateral used over and over and over again). This portends the beginning of a domino effect, which over a year ago was predicted to run for about 10 days before collapsing the world’s economy, taking out the entire European and U.S. economies, and reaching to Japan and China. The collapse will be global.

Does this sound like I’m a paid operative of the White House? I want to get information out to people so they can best position themselves in the onrushing economic storm, which may just cause the Obama Administration to impose nation-wide Martial Law and suspend the Constitution.

This, and the attempts by the Obama Administration to control news outlets and groups like Facebook and Youtube, should scare the Hell out of people.

The FB page along with the quote is still up and I somewhat doubt the account was ever really taken down. All we have is Mike Adam’s word for it and considering the source, that doesn’t count for very much in my book.

This historical quote was apparently too much for Facebook's censors to bear. They suspended our account and gave us a "final warning" that one more violation of their so-called "community guidelines" would result in our account being permanently deactivated.

They then demanded we send them a color copy of a "government issued identification" in order to reactivate our account. Our account was removed from suspension just minutes before InfoWars posted its article on this Facebook censorship, and the Facebook page is now functioning at:

www.Facebook.com/NaturalNews

Really? FB asked for a “color copy of a "government issued identification"”? ? ? And so what did you provide Mike? A color copy of your driver’s license? Your discharge papers from the looney bin?

Mike Adams, while he gets a few things right, very few things BTW, blind squirrel syndrome and all, is mostly a paranoid conspiracy theory, 9-11 truther, anti-science, pseudo scientific, anti-business, anti-military, granola crunching nut case who is more interested in selling and promoting sham natural health products via his website (and if FB took him down for a time, perhaps this is why).

For a good example of the types of incoherent bat guano screeds posted at Natural News consider this:

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-chat/2972596/posts

I have lots of friends on FB who have posted pro-second amendment posts and quotes including the Gandhi (which BTW, I don’t consider all that good of a quote for supporting the 2nd) and a lot of pro 2nd more pointed and more strident and I have posted pro-second amendment comments on my FB with no problems.

But crying censorship even when there apparently wasn’t any, is a good way of getting more hits to his FB page and website (blog page). After all: all publicity, even bad publicity is good publicity. Of all the things that can be said of Mike Adams, no one can’t say he isn’t good at self promotion.

No, but once you get the paranoia ball rolling, reason tends to disappear pretty quickly.

creeping government censorship

This isn't government censorship. Facebook isn't the government.

This, and the attempts by the Obama Administration to control news outlets and groups like Facebook and Youtube, should scare the Hell out of people.

Why should I believe that this had anything to do with the Obama administration? Is it just because it seems to follow along with its agenda? From 2001-2008 I saw lots of people zotted for expressing opinion contrary to the agenda of the Bush administration. Was Free Republic a pawn of the White House, or was it just on the same side? Those are different things.

Yup, a fascinating part of Indian history. And ill informed Facebook types wouldn’t know it in any case— jerking knees when one mentions ANY firearms, apparently.
As the nazis began to expand into Asia (and the japs from the other way in WWII) there was a great deal of political “adjustment” which undoubtedly led to partition. The adjustment was dealing with the muslim indians (of the old raj) who were aligning with and helping the nazis (islam without boundaries)... as indeed they later aligned with other socialists (the soviets in later internal indian politics) vs... the hindus who were aligned with brits more often (with the exception of certain muslim raj potentates).
It is true the brits left india w/out a military due to WWI demands. All in the Great Game, even as the brits (the King particularly) did nothing to stop the russian revolution (financed by Bank of England and others)against his own cousin the Tsar. Such are the influences in history. Tragic and needless waste of human potential. And why the US had an armed populace.

Quite clearly there ARE agents provocateurs on FR, identifiable to the older members. Assuredly, if a conservative tries to give opinion on DU, you get hosed out.
There is nothing more divisive to the “borderline” dems.. and the so called “moderates”, and even the ultraleft than ownership and bearing of firearms. Secretly or not so secretly, one finds out that Diane Feinstein (in her case even more egregious in that her husband and she are arms dealers w/the red chinees), Schumer, Rockefeller and legions of PC lefties, own and bear firearms, and so called “assault weapons” (meaning of this term has been deliberately distorted). So this becomes... “do as we say.. but we are better than you....so don’t do as we do”. Like Animal Farm, more “equal” than others.

Fair point about variety of opinions, and at the same time the main page of the FR Forum states the positions of the sponsors/owners.

There is another post here that has it right. FB, google and more than a few others are PROXY ca$$h sites (for electronic money) for obamaomau. They are also part of the fascist/corporatist/Statist Left— there is such a thing- we had this prior to WWII- with their cash going to support the “agenda”. Tammany goes internet— that sort of thing.

Couple this with the govt. employees unions and their legions of shadow statist advocates— and you get— a re-election that should not have been. Would not have been, given sharper street smart people running the campaign.

Paranoia starts when one is always afraid. Information, identification, action.... these things reduce fear and hence paranoia. The state often moves to identify paranoia that follows the facts (as oftentimes said even paranoids DO have enemies).

The “shaping” of opinion, whether by the Bushies propaganda (no fan of them here— we got here because of the senior bush dismantling Reagan, and giving us, with help from Perot, the Clintoonians/obamaomaus), OR by the current regime is part of the “ruling” package that comes with regimes. Which is even more reason to discern what the truth is, informed by conservative principles.

Honestly, it may not have been one of my friends who posted the Gandhi quote but one who merely commented on it when one of their friends posted it or they could have posted it to point out the hypocrisy of it. I only saw it once on FB. My point was that quote wasn’t banned by FB, neither were the numerous other pro 2nd posts I and my friends have made on FB. In other words, I think Mike Adams is full of it.

Thank you. Yes Spanish banks are crashing. The Greeks aren’t going to change a thing, and Germany and France are taking their ball home. You won’t hear this from the “all politics are local” obamaomaus, as they troll yet again for “constituency” groups.

The most recent let out of the bag...is the MILK SUBSIDY, because congress had no ability to pass an agriculture bill— due to expenses of Food Stamps...yikes. To buy farm state votes to continue URBAN spending they will never see
-but hey, that lets the dems yet again not have a budget and continue to rip off the few producers left.

This is not a time for “witch hunts”. It is a time for solidarity of central conservative tenets and principles. Lots of keyboard commando types have come onto FR in recent years. Distressing.

Keep in mind that the first Russian Revolution removed the Czar and installed the Socialist Kerensky, who continued WWI as a British Ally. The second removed Kerensky and installed Lenin and Trotsky, as an ally of Imperial Germany.

After Imperial Germany was defeated (by US intervention, with US soldiers trained by the remnants of French Chausseur units) after Britain and France had fought for three years, the Russian Civil War started, with the 4 US regiments put in place to guard military stores at Murmansk and Vladivostok participating to a very limited extent. The Czech Legion was eventually given passage home, and the White Russians either died, got away, or settled in Brest Litvosk territories such as Belarus, Lithuania, Estonia, Poland, Latvia, or Ukraine. Some White Russians joined the Polish armed forces, and fought against Soviet Russia in the Polish-Soviet war.

So which revolution do you assert that the Bank of England funded? Especially considering that the Bank of England was pretty much bankrupt from funding WWI?

“This is not a time for “witch hunts”. It is a time for solidarity of central conservative tenets and principles. Lots of keyboard commando types have come onto FR in recent years. Distressing.”

Jim Robinson has maintained a strict agenda on FR: pro-life, pro-U.S.Constitution, pro-Conservative agenda.

The Viking Kitties do a good job of eradicating the left-wing and libertarian vermin (proselatizers) when they do pop-up from time to time. I’ve noticed since the November elections they’ve less work to do.

It is, after all, a privately funded site and JR can boot anyone he deems unsuitable. He wants “solidarity of central conservative tenets and principles”, as you state it, here on FR. I comply with his declarations and agree with you.

Now is the time for Conservatives to get their acts together and move to straighten out the GOP.

Don’t know which 7 deadly list anger is on (must be reformed Druids):
1. Lust 2. Gluttony 3. Greed 4. Sloth 5. Wrath(this means RAGE, not Anger btw) 6. Envy 7. Pride. To be counteracted by humility, charity, kindness, patience, chastity, temperance, and diligence.

Modern psychologists view Anger as a primary, natural, and mature emotion experienced by virtually all humans at times, and as something that has functional value for survival. Buuut, in Rodney King’s case he and his minders cultivated the Rage/sin which resulted (for political reasons, thank you Maxine Waters) :

Stopped for DUI (which would violate his parole for armed robbery) with blood alcohol of over .19. Judge agreed he aggravated the situation under this influence, and officers justified and in line with police policy subduing him. Acquitted two of the officers, convicted other two.

The acquittals generally considered to have triggered the 1992 Los Angeles riots,where 53 people were killed, and over two thousand were injured. The riots ended when the United States Army National Guard, along with Marines from nearby Camp Pendleton were called in to assist local authorities and quell the riots. Numerous copy cat riots occurred in San Fran, Atlanta,Vegas and Toronto— injuring many more.

Invests some of his 3.8 mill settlement with LA in a rap record label (full of druggie rappers, just like him). Company goes under. In and out of jail thereafter over ensuing years, including for hitting his wife with his car.
Issues “comments” about, of all things Trayvon Martin (about which he knows nothing) in April 2012, that trayvons screams reminded him of his own— good Lord.

June 2012: found dead in his pool. Coroner: died of accidental drowning, and that alcohol, cocaine, and marijuana were found in his blood and were contributing factors.

A completely Wasted life, and the wasting of other’s lives from Wrath, a sin. Answer: NO, we can’t all get along— some people can NEVER get along-black, white, whatever- because they are ALWAYS high and were stupid, genetically, from birth.

But thank you for the morale and laundry boost!! Happy New Year!

"In other words, I think Mike Adams is full of it."

Couldn't agree more. A lot of nutcases get their stuff posted here on FR even after JimRob has told them not to post anything from those sources.

You gotta wonder about a dude who had a fixation on enemas,was for freedom and representation for everyone...except the Untouchables. Slept naked with multiple young women as a “test” of his “bramachari” to eliminate all tempations.

Maybe he had something there— he was in his 70’s. Gave up the naked multiple women on advice of friends and relatives... but clinton looked up to him.

I just posted following message on Facebook:

“Among the many misdeeds of British rule in India, history will look upon the Act depriving a whole nation of arms as the blackest.” - Mohandas Gandhi, an Autobiography, page 446.

I was born and raised in India. I agree with the Mahatma. Our struggle for independence from the British rule would have been much shortened if we had firearms. Now I live in the great country of United States as a naturalized citizen. I love our constitution because it is all about individual rights, and restricts powers of the federal government. I especially appreciate the 1st and 2nd Amendments. Those will keep us free of tyrants.

Facebook can allow or not allow anything they want on Facebook. It’s their property.

That's right. And because they have the legal right to do so, we have no right what-so-ever to comment on it or express an opinion about it.

Welcome to America! Now get ready to defend the First and Second Amendments with your fellow patriots, as these are currently under vicious attack by those who consider themselves our “betters”.
