#Facebook bans posting of Declaration of Independence

Really. A small newspaper in Texas was posting excerpts from the Declaration of Independence, leading up to the 4th of July. Until Facebook tagged their posts as offensive hate speech.

Seriously. History, especially the ugly parts, will be removed, just like in George Orwell’s 1984. We don’t need to burn books anymore, as in Farenheit 451. Now we just delete the electronic copies. History, gone in a flash!
