Facebook censorship

I recently tried to post a photo and the quote (below) on Facebook. My post was flagged as offensive and it was immediately removed. The image appears on the right and the quote is:

"When fascism comes to America, it will be wrapped in a flag and carrying a cross” -- Sinclair Lewis

Can anyone explain to me why this is offensive?

I appealed Facebook's decision. I'll keep you posted about their reply.


  1. I never got a good answer of why this was offensive. One person thought that maybe the image might be copyrighted; but, I checked, and i isn't.

  2. And now Google Blogger removed the photo. It was of Sarah Palin wearing a cross and wrapped in a flag.
