The censored post by the Anne Frank Center (AFC) read, “These numbers are alarming, but this is why we do what we do. Currently only 10 states mandate Holocaust and Genocide Education. How do we counter ignorance about the Holocaust with knowledge, compassion, and understanding?
A spokesperson for AFC told Business Insider that the organization accepts Facebook’s apology. “We understand the difficulty in assessing the context of potentially controversial content. That said, it shouldn’t have taken us publicly calling out Facebook to restore our post. Hopefully, Facebook can revise their protocols,” the spokeswoman stated.
“If Facebook is serious about its community standards it should start tackling Holocaust denial and not the organizations who are trying to educate people on discrimination, facts, and history,” she continued.
In another statement, AFC admonished Facebookfurther:
Facebook has consistently come under fire for sanctimoniously banning ads, videos and pages for “violating community standards” that are never actually articulated. Earlier this summer, a political campaign ad by California conservative Elizabeth Heng was banned by the social media behemoth for multiple violations. The video contained footage of the Cambodian genocide, which is an integral part of Heng’s background — this footage is what Facebook said was offensive and “too shocking.”
Facebook also prohibited pro-life ads this year for being “too controversial” — yet Planned Parenthood is banned. If it doesn’t fit the left-wing’s narrative, it simply won’t be tolerated.
