Few minutes ago I received the following message from Facebook:
This post goes against our Community Standards.
Only you can see this post because it goes against our standards on hate speech.
Trending: Does Supreme Court Need Term Limits?
Next, Facebook showed the “offensive” comment in Portuguese: “As duas sapatonas foram mau exemplo.” The translation is: “Both bull dykes were a bad example.” This was not a Facebook post in my account. It was just a comment in the page of a conservative friend.
Then, Facebook said to me:
You’re Temporarily Blocked From Posting
This temporary block will last 30 days, and you won’t be able to post on Facebook until it’s finished.
If you post something that goes against our standard again, your account will be blocked for another 30 days.
Please keep in mind that people who repeatedly post things that aren’t allowed on Facebook may have their accounts permanently disabled.
So my Facebook account (https://www.facebook.com/julio.severo) will be blocked for thirty days (effective August 17, 2018) not because I advocated violence against lesbians. I was blocked because I used the very popular Portuguese term “sapatona,” which means literally “big shoe” and in Brazil it is a word traditionally used to refer to masculinized women using men’s big shoes! It seems that the translation into English may be “bull dyke.”
Recently, a Brazilian homosexual singer called Jesus “gay,” “transvestite” and “transsexual.” His offensive comment flooded Facebook pages throughout Brazil, and there was no reported censorship or block against what the homosexual activist said against Jesus. Yet, because I just said that the behavior of two “sapatonas” was a bad example, Facebook, which did not see any hate speech in a homosexual reviling Jesus, is punishing me with a 30-day block of my account. So am I supposed to say that the behavior of “honored” lesbians is a good example, especially to children?
This is Facebook’s standards: Any popular term that homosexuals do not like is “hate speech” but when their dirty words against Jesus Christ flood Facebook, there is not hate speech.
This is not the first 30-day block of Facebook against me.
From June 10 to July 10 my Facebook account was blocked over a post against Islamic sexual violence against European girls.
The whole month of February 2018 I remained blocked because I denounced the homosexual agenda and the Islamic invasion of Europe. See my article: Why Does Facebook Harass and Censor Christians?
Facebook also imposed a 30-day block against me on December 2017 because I mentioned the Christian duty to love sinners, including homosexuals. You can read my article here: Why Does Facebook Grant Free Speech to Anti-Christian Radicals and Impose Censorship on Christians?
And on June 2017 Facebook imposed another 30-day block against me because I was reporting on Brazilians who were fined for calling a homosexual “fag.” See my article: “Facebook, Censorship, Profanity, Name-Calling and Foul Language.” In this case, Facebook backtracked after a California-based legal group threatened to sue Facebook on my behalf. Because of the legal threat, Facebook recognized that its actions were censorship. See my article: Facebook Acknowledges Its Own Censorship on Julio Severo. What Happens Now?
Perhaps one of the most shameful acts of Facebook against me was to censor Leviticus 18:22, a famous Bible verse that I had posted on my profile, but Facebook did not like it and removed it. See my article: Help! Facebook Is Censoring Bible Verses
This censorship against a Bible verse immediately became headline on WND (WorldNetDaily), in a report titled “Famous Bible verse too sizzling for Facebook.”
Because of this scandal, Facebook contacted WND with this message:
“As soon as we were notified of the problem, we began to investigate and restored the content as soon as we were able to identify the mistake. The content has been restored since it didn’t violate our standards. We’ve informed Mr. Severo of the restoration and apologized for the error.” (See the WND report “Facebook finally responds on censoring hot Bible verse”)
Yet, the Bible post was not restored and I have never received any apology from Facebook.
If the Facebook owner, who is a left-wing Jew, does not care even about Leviticus 18:22, a famous verse from the Jewish Scriptures, why would he care about a post attacking Islamic sexual violence against European girls?
What I wonder is: How can a Jew, who belongs to a race and religion historically oppressed by Muslims, censor my effort to denounce Islamic sexual violence?
Earlier this year, a Jew denounced Facebook for excluding Israel and including Palestine. Is Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg against his own race and evangelical Christians, the most important allies of the Jews?
Tell Mr. Zuckerberg that Julio Severo is an evangelical Christian who is a passionate advocate of the Bible and Israel in its biblical borders.
