Si linguis hominum loquar et angelorum, caritatem autem non habeam, factus sum velut aes sonians aut cymbalum tinniens. Ego sum christianae catholicae.

On this day in 1969, the very first episode of “Monty Python's Flying Circus” aired on BBC One. If you don’t know, the iconic opening music is John Philip Sousa’s “The Liberty Bell,” chosen because it was out of copyright, and therefore free.

For an understanding of true kneeing, see https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Genuflection

Taking a knee in a gesture of protest is negative and a wasteful action. Instead genuflexing and praying for our fellows' redemption away sin is a positive action.

The problem is by whom is doing the faking.

Dear Mr. Zuckerberg,

My name is Austin Petersen, and I am a Republican running to represent the people of Missouri in the United States Senate. I am also a longtime Facebook user and an avid believer in Facebook’s mission: to give people the power to build community and bring the world closer together. First, let me say that I fully respect the right of Facebook as a company to do as it pleases, and set terms of service that users must abide by. As a US senator, I would never call for legislation to interfere with your ability to run your company, or set guidelines on user’s behavior.

In my campaign for the United States Senate, I have made Facebook a centerpiece of my outreach efforts. I have used both my Personal Profile and my Official Page to connect with friends, family, and supporters, and to share and express our views about the future of the country.

That’s why, on September 22, I was so shocked to receive a notification from Facebook informing me that I had been “blocked” from using Facebook for thirty days because I “recently posted something that violates Facebook’s policies.” Believing this to be a mistake, my campaign reached out to Facebook for more information. Today — six days later — I still have not received an explanation, and the block remains in effect.

At the same time the block was affected, a Facebook Live video I had posted to my Official Page promoting my campaign’s AR-15 giveaway was removed. A few days later, a Status Update posted to my Profile referencing the same giveaway was also removed. I’m confident that such giveaways are consistent with Facebook’s policies — several posts promoting the giveaway, including paid “Dark Posts,” remain visible on our page — so it’s unclear to me why such content would warrant an immediate takedown and thirty-day ban.

It’s difficult to ignore that this action comes during a period of heightened tension regarding Facebook’s role in our elections, and its perceived bias against conservative voices. Moreover, the fact that your Chief Operating Officer — Sheryl Sandberg — has “leaned into” my election by donating the maximum allowable amount to my opponent does not inspire confidence in Facebook’s neutrality.

I’ve been following with interest your recent statements defending Facebook as an unbiased platform “for all ideas.” I hope that’s really true. However, blocking a candidate for the United States Senate for exercising support of the Second Amendment — especially when that candidate is challenging an incumbent favored by members of your board — is cause for concern and worthy of a larger conversation and a public explanation. I hope that you, or Ms. Sandberg, are able to offer one that assuages my concerns and the concerns of the larger conservative community.

As I said, I am a longtime Facebook user and a believer in your company’s mission. Facebook’s success is a testament to the American ideal of free enterprise, and you should be proud of the business you’ve built. But if Facebook cannot truly be an unbiased, open platform that respects people with conservative views of the Constitution, that raises serious questions that must be addressed.

Thank you for taking time to hear my concerns. I look forward to having the opportunity to speak with you further.

Sincerely,

Austin Petersen
Republican for U.S. Senate, Missouri

P.S. — If you’re reading this letter and share my concerns about bias and censorship at Facebook, please sign our petition. Let’s urge Facebook to follow through on their promise to maintain a platform open to all ideas.

@TownHallweblog: It's called freedom of the press. The first amendment is NOT just about the printing press but includes future innovations in communications

I don't want to be a fly on any wall. Although witnessing great events would be cool, I'm not too swift hence my demise would be quick.
