"A member of our team accidentally removed something you posted on Facebook," they told me in an email. "This was a mistake and we sincerely apologize for this error."

In other words, Facebook blamed it on a pair of low-level employees in their Cincinnati office.

It's not the first time my espousal of traditional American values has come under assault.

Last year Amazon suspended sales of my book Dispatches From Bitter America -- Culture War Stories From a Gun-Toting, Chicken-Eating, Son-of-a-Baptist.

Amazon refused to say why they temporarily banned the book, but it had come under attack by liberal activists who flooded the site with bad reviews.

Tony Perkins, president of the Family Research Council, penned a column about what he called the “dangerous trend of online censorship.

“The ‘customers’ (a.k.a. liberal activists) had flooded Todd’s page with fake reviews of the book until the company pulled the plug,” Perkins wrote. “It was a stunning display of liberal censorship from Amazon.com -- which sells far more objectionable and obscene material than a book by a mainstream radio host.”

“Yet this tiny protest from an intolerant fringe was all it took to strip the book from the shelves and expose the company’s true agenda,” Perkins wrote.

And it's not the first time Facebook has targeted conservatives.

The popular "Chick on the Right" website was blocked last year for posting a critical comment about the White House press secretary. Facebook relented after a massive national outcry.

It's really sad that Facebook objects to people who share traditional American values. And quite frankly, any community that doesn't allow sweet tea and the Bible violates my personal standards.
