    Media silent as Facebook removes page calling for murder of Mitt Romney
    On Monday, Facebook removed a page advocating the murder of presumptive GOP nominee Mitt Romney, but the so-called "mainstream media" has largely remained silent about the page. Originally created on August 10, it prompted the creation of another page calling for its removal, The Blaze reported Monday.

    Initially, Facebook told some who reported the page that it did not violate their terms of service.

    The page, named "Kill Mitt Romney," was the brainchild of Staphmeal blogger Joshua Scott Albert, the Philly Post reported Monday. According to the Post, Scott also created a page supporting two alleged killers of a Philadelphia police officer.

    Liberals on Twitter have called for the deaths of former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, Governor Scott Walker and Donald Trump. They have also called for the death of Supreme Court Justices and Republicans in general.

    Some called for the death of a six-year-old boy who was featured in a viral video opposing Obama's re-election, and seventeen-year-old Madeleine McAulay received death threats after making a Youtube video supporting traditional marriage.

    Earlier this month, liberals on Twitter called for the murder of Mitt Romney, and some threatened to kill those who vote for him.

    On practically any given day, one can find messages on social media sites calling for various Republicans or their supporters to be killed or physically harmed.

    More recently, liberals on Twitter called for the rape and murder of Missouri Republican Todd Akin over his remarks about "legitimate rape." The FBI and Capitol Police are currently investigating threats that have been leveled at him, his staff and his family.​
