Facebook repressing first amendment rights of Navy Seals (updated)

From Breitbart:
Over the weekend, Facebook took down a message by the Special Operations Speaks PAC (SOS) which highlighted the fact that Obama denied backup to the forces being overrun in Benghazi. 
The message was contained in a meme which demonstrated how Obama had relied on the SEALS when he was ready to let them get Osama bin Laden, and how he had turned around and denied them when they called for backup on Sept 11.
It looks like the libs at Facebook have free speech issues when it comes to their President looking bad.


Chris Hughes, co-founder of Facebook has a vested interest in keeping Obama afloat. This from Fast Company in 2009:
We are in Washington, D.C., just three days before his most recent boss, Barack Obama, will take office. It is so bone-jarringly cold that even nestled over coffee inside a Starbucks, we can see our breath. I resist the urge to pat his nearly whiskerless cheek, or reach over to tighten his jacket against the frigid air. Such a baby face. But at the age of 25, Hughes has helped create two of the most successful startups in modern history, Facebook and the campaign apparatus that got Barack Obama elected. Both were dedicated to the proposition that communities, and the way we share and interact within them, are vitally important. As he recounts his two years as director of online organizing for the man who put community organizing on the map, the existential reverie is understandable. He doesn't know what community means? Really? "Well, I just never think of myself as being in the business of building an online community."
He was instrumental in getting Barack Obama elected through the use of online social media and attended Barack Obama's first state dinner, according to Wikipedia.

I don't even know if he's still involved in the day to day operations of Facebook. I do know that this demonstrates a tradition of Facebook supporting the liberal cause.

(thank you @dawnkazmierzak for the tip!)
