Facebook Admits Banning Users for Saying They Are ‘Proud to Be English’

Facebook Admits Banning Users for Saying They Are ‘Proud to Be English’, by Jack Montgomery.

Facebook has admitted to banning swathes of users for posting messages saying they were “Proud to be English” on St George’s Day.

As England’s patron saint, St George’s Day has long been celebrated as the English national day — if with less official enthusiasm than St Patrick’s Day in neighbouring Ireland …

An image bearing the legend “Proud to Be English” and two crossed flagpoles carrying the English St George’s Cross and the white lion on a red field — a banner associated with Anglo-Saxons — appears to have proved particularly offensive to the so-called “Masters of the Universe“. …

Hostility to St George’s Day in 2020 was not just limited to Big Tech and establishment figures, however, with one couple who celebrated the English national day by putting up a model of the country’s patron saint holding a sign saying “The NHS will slay Covid-19” — a reference to his legendary dragon-slaying exploits — having their home vandalised with “NAZI” graffiti and 50 bags of dog faeces thrown into the garden.

PC Message: White people, especially the English, are bad — racist, imperialist, whatever, you name it.

PC Solution: Adolf Hitler (8 million) was a socialist, as was Mao (60 m), and Stalin (40m). In each case, it started with demonetization based on identity, and progressed to mass murder. Beware.
