CHARGE: FACEBOOK’S APPALLING BIGOTRY
The Jewish Press
There is no scientific equation to determine what is hatred, but a Facebook picture of a smiling Anne Frank surrounded by the caption, “What’s that burning? Oh it’s my family” is an easy one. So is a Facebook picture of a baby on a scale emblazoned with a Jewish Star, where the bottom of the scale is a meat grinder with raw ground meat (presumably, a baby’s) oozing out.

Facebook disagreed. The pictures remain up.
