    At first glance, the Vindicator’s Facebook promotion did not seem designed to make waves.

    The small newspaper, based out of Liberty, a Texas town of 9,175 outside of Houston, planned to post the Declaration of Independence on Facebook in 12 daily installments leading up to the Fourth of July — 242 years since the document was adopted at the Second Continental Congress in 1776.

    But on the 10th day, the Vindicator’s latest installment was removed by Facebook. The company told the newspaper that the particular passage, which included the phrase “merciless Indian Savages,” went against its “standards on hate speech,”
    It's not how old you are, it's how you got here.
    It's been a long road and not all of it was paved.
    . If you ain't havin' fun, it's your own damn fault

    So now Facebook is the arbiter of American history. We're done as a nation.

    (And by the way, the Indians WERE merciless in battle. It was touch and go on the prairie with no guarantee that the settlers would survive.)
