Facebook Bans German Historian for Saying 'Islam Is Not Part of German History'

Hard to imagine (or maybe it isn't anymore).  I think it's time to decentralize these effing social media platforms.  Have something to say.  Get your own damn website!
Last month, Facebook censored a German historian who posted a message about Islam's historic impact on Germany. Facebook banned the historian for 30 days, even though 76 percent of Germans agree that Islam does not "belong to Germany."

Michael Hesemann, a journalist and Vatican historian with an honorary doctorate for his work in uncovering documents from the Armenian Genocide, posted a message that Facebook said did "not correspond to our community standards." The offensive message was an accurate — if overstated — historical statement.
