    I deleted Facebook after seeing numerous videos of sadistic violence to humans, Animal Abuse and boring as fuck comments.
    Don't let them think they rule the world.

    Not many others I’ve met have a name for envy and a set of rules defining it. Envy exists. Envy is envy. Norwegians have it minimized in a few rules to live by. They call the Law of Jante.
    Here it is:
    The Law of Jante
    You are not to think you are anything special.
    You are not to think you are as good as us.
    You are not to convince yourself that you are better than us.
    You are not to think you know more than us.
    You are not to think you are more important than us.
    You are not to think you are good at anything.
    You are not to laugh at us.
    You are not to think anyone cares about you.
    You are not to think you can teach us anything.
    Getting a NO CAN DO struck a chord in the jante character of the Norwegian journalist from Aftenposten Espen Egil Hansen. FB suddenly had put him in the same position he puts many others and that felt wrong! Who are you to tell me no? I say rule number three was probably what he felt “you are not to convince yourself you are better than us”.
    So he went crying to Norway's Prime Minister. He cried to politicians all over and used the tools he had at his disposal. No one is going to tell that powerful man from Norway NO! All those stupid politicians held that photo and smiled! their smiles cheek to cheek but “do they know what they are holding?” Why the smiles? It was pure ego, nothing else.
    Surely they felt powerful and united. An elite gang of Norwegians that will tell the world how they feel. Rejection is not something we accept lightly! The excuse, of course, was “the iconic picture got deleted” but what was it doing in the private FB of a man that is not at all iconic? Right, that is precisely why Aftenposten involved the politicians and made it global. Let's bring us back into the mix as part of the iconic. We use the naked little girl to our advantage! and Smile Erna! Smile! You are holding the naked girl that to you means jack!
    FB you are not better than us and we may tell you about democracy. Regardless of the agreement, we signed when we decided to open our accounts – that is not for us powerful in Norway – no way! Together we can take FB down and smile holding the misery of a young woman and other kids and smile! It is 2016 and we are the powerful bunch up north!
    Remember that in Norway we do not want Muslims or other cultures to take over our own Norwegian values, but we Norwegians may tell the rest how they are to value life and naked girls if iconic or not! We from here are telling you what to do and how we want it.
    Right now there is the fight in court of a Muslim woman who at a private hair salon was told “no we do not cut your kind here!” Comparing it to FB private policies and Aftenposten’s reactions, I say, that Muslim woman should then get her hair fixed and done and politicians should have that private owner ignore her rules of business and do the Muslim’s woman hair.
    You see it is the ego of a man with power what got bruised. He went running to his other little helpers and asked them to pose too. All very idiotic really because had they understood how iconic in truth that picture is none of them would be holding it with smiles from cheek to cheek. They felt proud that together as a political plot they took the big dude at FB and made him back down.
    I think those politicians have to rethink their ability to socialize and empathize.

    Why would anyone think a tragic picture could be consider a pornographic child pic? Really, no… The question who is trying to hide this picture from our youth or those who have no knowledge of the outcomes of war.

    Seriously Facebook? Kiddie porn? Are you really that retarded to forget your own wars that you need to hide one of humanity's most iconic images? Anyone who regards this image as sexual or arousing must be as psychotic and depraved as your own mindset! This image is about the horrors of war, and should not be regarded as "politicaly incorrect", or you really lost the plot altogether!

    the rotten powerelite believes on her victory in the culture war. What remains after destruction of the god, who knows everything and the christan moral is the attavism of the old testament. The world comes in the hand of the pharisäers, always synonym for dounke standarts, a army of lawjers… Rechtsverdreher… those who mix poisen.. and the chemical industry, money laundreres, moneyjunjies, moneychangers… and they need a growing a nd growing and boring new talmut of political correctness to hide their hidden easy wars, their hiddenceorldwar, their bloodsucking and massjurderer behind closed dors..

    The pharisäers andvtheir cabale in corporate fashistic enterorises, in bed with their founders of cia, pentagon, mossad, with shsmeless actors reoresenting them like zuckerberg demonstrate their power in rewriting history now. Some believe, this foto marked the trend change in perception of vietnam war… The warmangers dont love it…

    Look. Scince desert storm the warriors in information made some progress… They kearhed in Kossowo, that the Totale of camera in monts of ded people allone let the adressates sit there and eat and drink…

    The fantasie of the animals the talmutpharisäers of Korreftness educate via their media must do the work. Put it behind oixels and cuttains. Help the creation of reality with armies of crisisactors.

    And send every broadcast, who shows other version of the easy endless war, the bloodsuckers want, armies of the lawjers..

    Look.. obviousley are the same cabakists behind the i s i s .. dash.. plot.. And they own millionsbof nerds in bfilmindustry… by the way.. noone knows better about floading world with porno, than they, who fragmented Öffentlichkeit.. let the beheafing behind curtain.

    And if one of the best broadcasts of the world, eith very careful recherche, Iranian tv..shows the real horror of the zionistic wars… let them ban with our pharisäers…

    And look at the implications for the picture of the human nature… Give Öffentlichkeit in the hsnds of unhistoric hysteric vettels or fract it to hundreds, thoussnds if minorities.. then you will have the oermanent game of tensions.. directed by the sicial rechnocrats, the Plutocratic cabale loves so…

    Let them continue, the little boys ahd girls with their nihilism, the enemies of humanity… The cirporate fashists

    then finis germany, finis america, finis humanity.

    Ban Facebook… Its orwellian plot if lies…
    Poisen by the masters of mixing poisen.

    This isn't about stopping child pornography, it's about censoring "offensive" images that make the United States look bad.

    only fascists and perverts would consider an image like that to be child pornography. delete the fascists and perverts from face book rather than valid images of fascist atrocities.

    People need to understand that for a majority of people seeing is believing, and if we police every single piece of content that might upset someone then we're going to lose valuable lessons from our world history.
