A READER just sent me a copy of a note she sent to Facebook about the removal of the Geert Wilders' Facebook page. She sent her email to: firstname.lastname@example.org (update: this email address may no longer work; please see comments on this post for the lastest information). I think we should all do something similar. As soon as I post this, I'm going to do it too. Here is what she wrote:
I just found out that FaceBook took down Geert Wilders' page. That's wrong. That's against freedom of speech. He's a well respected member of the Holland's third largest political party. He's fighting for freedom and everything we hold dear. How could you possibly take his page off FaceBook?
I can only presume you have submitted to the complaints of Muslims and you are afraid to take a stand against them. You guys need to step up to the plate and behave like men, not scared little boys.
If you value democracy and your right to speak our mind, even if the truth offends Islam, then you simply must take a stand for freedom of speech. His is not hate speech. He simply speaks the truth about what Islam is doing to his homeland of Holland and the rest of Europe. As he has said more than once: America is the world's last great hope. Please show him he's right.
The page protesting Facebook's action is growing quickly. Please share it with your friends, and tell them why it's important that we do not cave in to Islamic demands to curb our free speech: Geert Wilders We Want Your Facebook Page Back.
It is possible that Geert was the victim of "Facebook Jihad" by Revolution Muslim. Learn more about that here: Facebook Jihad.
