Michael Moore files a complaint with Facebook to block Donald Trump's "hate speech."

Courtesy of Mediaite:  

Political filmmaker Michael Moore recruited his Facebook followers to report Donald Trump for hate speech, writing a detailed post Wednesday describing the process to “file your complaint” against the presidential candidate. 

“Facebook prohibits all its users from using hate speech on its site (‘You will not post content that is hate speech’).” 

Moore wrote. “I’m joining others today in filing a complaint with Facebook that Trump’s Facebook page is using hate speech to promote racism and bigotry.” Moore directed his followers to visit Trump’s page and report the business mogul, alerting the website that “it shouldn’t be on FB” because it is “hate speech.” 

Well considering the result from all of Trump's rhetoric, it's not like Moore is wrong to call it "hate speech." 

So you know what, I think I might join him in filing a complaint.

Anybody else?

      Sarah Palin's page should also be reported and any of trumps followers.
      Its time, way past time to stop the hate! You know that Trump is taking advice from Serra? Its so obvious and that's why she is kissing his ass now.
      I saw on Freak out Nation Ms.Lindsey Graham is also speaking out against Trump and the rest of them/Cons irrational hatred of POTUS http://freakoutnation.com/2015/12/lindsey-graham-rips-conservatives-for-their-irrational-hatred-for-obama/
      ***
      Its only a matter of time when they make Trump the scape goat of all the Domestic Terrorism and kick his ass out of the RNC/potus candidate. Watch for it.

      Go to a specific post, like his December 7 one stating his proposed ban on Muslims entering the country, and click on the "v" in the upper right corner of the box. Then click "I don't like this post," then "I don't think it should be on Facebook," then "It's harassment or hate speech," then "A race or ethnicity" or "Religious group," and then submit to Facebook.

      Sarah Palin fueled all this hatred for President Obama. She added much fuel to it. She just cannot get over a black man kicking a white mans ass for president. She is the most vilest racist of them all, so is her daughter Bristol. Both hateful venomous women.

    Hell, let's take this even further. Let's do this for Sarah Palin as well. Her constant hate aimed at the POTUS borders on traitorism, divisiveness and anti-Americanism. Fuck it, I'm doing this.

    Zuckerberg should be policing this type of thing himself.

    Unfortunately, this will just make headlines, and give tRump another 'whining point' to bloviate about.

    Somehow, this came across my my FB feed: that Zuckerberg ALREADY decreed tRumps FB site was a hate site and that it was banned.
    If not, I will definitely join Michael Moore and so many others in getting this racist Nazimercun off social media!

    There are numerous Trump sites on FB. I need a shower after looking at one of them. There is a photo circulating that declares that anyone not supporting Trump is a Muslim.

    I feel more frightened about extremists here than ISIS/terrorist organizations because their mentality is so similar.

      Gee, ethnically and spiritually, I'm about as far from being a "Muslim" as a person can be but I simply cannot abide the sight or sound of Donald Trump.

      You are right that extremists here in the US are alarmingly like their counterparts in the Middle East. And one of the folks fanning their flames is none other than Donald Trump.

      I got the same thing. Guess Zucker's busy holiday shopping and has "send standard form letter" turned on. BUT the more they get, the less they can ignore it.

    How about flooding the Facebook inventor, young billionaire who might have some social conscience, with email messages of the same complaint?

    I already did a few days ago. Facebook responded by saying it didn't meet the standards of hate speech, and will not be taking the page down.

    1. They may have to change that when they get millions of people reporting it.

      If they don't take it down, they are going to have the media to deal with, not Trump.

      And if, as someone stated, even Zuckerberg stated it was hate speech, they are going to have to take it own. He'll order them to as a last resort if necessary.

      mlaiuppa12:13 PM, you would think so, but it's automated. You think they have real people checking these complaints out? Not on your life. I've reported real death threats to me. And they were found "not credible" by facebook. It's not going away. I did do my part, and reported it. But it's not going away.

      Delete
    3. They have real people reading the news and other media. When it hits the fan they'll do something. They had to respond every time their security fucked up and released private information. If it makes a big enough stink, someone will get a call from Zuckerberg saying fix it and it will get fixed.

    FB has narrowly proscribed parameters for calling something hate speech. For instance, as I discovered while working on behalf of marriage equality, "fag.got" and "dy.ke" will get someone a time out, but "pan.sy," "ho.mo," "que.er," "bu.tt pirate," "le.z," "rug mun.cher" and the like are just fine with Team Zuckerberg.On the anti-Muslim epithet front, FB puts up with "camel joc.key" and "rag.head," but draws the line at "sand nig.ger". (I did get someone bounced yesterday for that last one.) It's completely arbitrary. People can advocate for the death of an entire demographic and FB allows it.

    I just want to add that Michael Moore is not innocent in the hate speech arena. He just does it differently. Donald Trump is a tool and his days are numbered. But for the life of me I can't figure out what Michael Moore has contributed to this earth. He's a slob.

      He may not dress elegantly but Michael Moore is very smart and he has done a lot. His films have opened eyes and sparked debate - always a good thing. He has not run away from controversy; he seems to thrive on it. He has made major contributions to communities in northwest lower Michigan and he has helped returning military veterans, all without getting much credit. Michael Moore does not indulge in "hate speech"; he has not incited crowds or encouraged supporters to indulge in violent behavior. Anon at 11:40 am, you obviously do not know much about Michael Moore. Maybe you could start by watching his films.

      Michael Moore is brilliant. And he's funny, so he gets his message out in a very appealing way. And his message is to help the little guy, to not let greed and profit demolish the little guy, to be fair, to not judge... And you think he is a slob? Because he is fat? Well you revealed more about YOU than about him. You clearly have not bothered to listen to him, blocked by your own prejudice to be open minded. He is a hero.
