I don’t know how many of you have heard about the latest fiasco involving Facebook? It seems that they now consider Down Syndrome kids and the Special Olympics to be reprehensible along the lines of “hate speech, support for violent organizations, and as threats to harm others”.
No I am not making this up. I almost wish I was.
What the f^@% are these people thinking? I am absolutely baffled. And fed up!
Sorry folks, but I have had it. I am removing my personal Facebook page and this blog’s Facebook community page. You can still come directly here, or follow me on twitter. But I am done with Facebook. They have managed to f^@% it up one too many times. Their policies are getting weirder, there rules are inconsistent, and frankly, it’s one more social media thing that I can live without.
The following link is to an article by Shaun Heasley on the Disability Scoop website. It also links to another article with a video of the Mom and her kiddo. I think there is a petition going around somewhere in the Facebook universe, but I am done promoting them or anything about them so no link to that.
That’s it for me, I’ve had it. It’s been an emotional two days what with this whole Facebook fiasco and the tape of that darling little boy being verbally abused by his teachers. My heart just can’t take any more. It breaks a little more every time I hear, read or see another incident where a precious child is abused, put down, made fun of, disrespected, ignored or bullied. How much of a low life do you have to be to do that to a child…..a special needs child? You have to be lower than whale shit. Pardon my language. Like I said, it’s been a stressful couple of days.
I need a drink. It’s gonna be an early happy hour here today.
