GOP lawmaker’s Facebook eruption: Round up Muslim sympathizers and run them out of our country
Republican Arkansas State Senator Jason Rapert is back in the news this week after having another freakout on social media.
Arkansas Times reports that Rapert is claiming vindication after Facebook has decided to restore posts he wrote over the weekend where he declared his support for rounding up and deporting not just Muslim extremists, but “every single Muslim extremist sympathizer and other anti-American crazies.”
“Regardless of who is responsible for these events today – we need to round up every single Muslim extremist sympathizer and other anti-American crazies and detain them or deport them,” wrote Rapert in response to the mass stabbing that occurred in a Minnesota mall and the dumpster bombing in Manhattan. “And for goodness sake – stop bringing more Muslims into this nation.”
Rapert also said that Muslims “wait for every opportunity to convert Americans to Islam or kill the infidels — that is what their holy book the Koran instructs them to do.”
At any rate, it seems that Facebook removed his post because it supposedly violated “community standards.” He went on a successful whining campaign and got the company to put them back up. Facebook even apologized for removing his posts and claimed that it was all a big accident, but that wasn’t enough to satisfy his rage:
Liberal organizations like @facebook censor anything they personally disagree with-which apparently is any Christian conservative opinions.
