Facebook Deletes “Porno Pete” LaBarbera’s Americans for Truth About Homosexuality (AFTAH) Gay Hate Page

Hands are wringing and teeth are gnashing at extremist right-wing websites like LifeSiteNews over the fact that Facebook had deleted hate group leader “Porno “Pete” Peter LaBarbera’s  ” Americans for Truth About Homosexuality (AFTAH)  for using “hate speech”.

According to LifeSiteNews: “AFTAH is dedicated to “apply[ing] the same single-minded determination to opposing the radical homosexual agenda and standing for God-ordained sexuality and the natural family as countless homosexual groups do in promoting their harmful agenda.”

According to the Southern Poverty Law Center:  Americans for Truth About Homosexuality (AFTAH) was formed by long-time gay-basher Peter LaBarbera, who reorganized it in 2006 as a much more serious and influential, if often vicious, operation In 2007, LaBarbera claimed there was “a disproportionate incidence of pedophilia” among gay men — yet another false assertion. The same year, he posted an open letter to the Lithuanian people from long-time gay-basher Scott Lively, who has made a series of false claims about gays running the German Nazi Party.”

LaBarbera is also famous for going “undercover” and drooling and reporting on the naked men and  the “sinful and perverse” homosexual activity that takes place at the event.

On Sunday, Facebook took down AFTAH’s Facebook page entirely, leaving only a “Page Not Found” message in its place.

“Your Page has been unpublished for using hate speech, which goes against the Facebook Community Standards. Facebook “allow[s] individuals to speak freely,” but “take[s] action on reports of verbal abuse directed at individuals.”

 

LaBarbera took to Twitter Monday to display his displeasure:

Yesterday the cowardly yet proficient anti-#conservatives at @Facebook took down (“unpublished”) AFTAH’s FB page, citing violations of their (spurious) #hatestandards. We are appealing: pic.twitter.com/ptWsYOroYe

Last month, Twitter temporarily locked LaBarbera out of his account over a 2016 tweet describing sodomy as a “sin” that “spreads disease.”

Porno Pete is appealing Facebook’s latest ruling, which he histrionically calls “beyond Orwellian.”
