Både Lars Hedegaard og manden bag Snaphanen er bannet fra Facebook, og den bløde totalitarisme kryber ikke langs panelerne mere. Liberalborgerlige teoretiserer om frie markedsvilkår, alt imens ortodoks-røde jubler over ensretning af debatten. “Jeg kan ikke forestille mig, at Facebook ville turde optræde så diktatorisk, med mindre de havde rygdækning fra magtfulde politikere”, skriver Hedegaard hos Snaphanen, og jeg kan ikke finde tunge argumenter imod den udlægning.
