Opinion: Facebook censorship akin to Nazi book burning
06032018 FACEBOOK

In 1933, Nazi youth started the book burning movement — destroying books by some of the greatest authors of the time. They did this because it did not fit into Hitler’s agenda. They called it “burning propaganda.” 

Today, social media is repeating history through censorship of opinions and facts. Facebook removes anything that doesn’t “fit” their agenda, mainstream media, the same thing. 

This is book burning through social media and mainstream news. Shame on them and shame on us for accepting it.
