Fox News correspondent Todd Starnes says Facebook blocked him after he posted a lengthy remark about his political incorrectness, citing his favorable view of everything from the National Rifle Association to Jesus.

He posted: “I’m about as politically incorrect as you can get. I’m wearing an NRA ball cap, eating a Chick-fil-A sandwich, reading a Paula Deen cookbook and sipping a 20-ounce sweet tea while sitting in my Cracker Barrel rocking chair with the Gather Vocal Band singing ‘Jesus Saves‘ on the stereo and a Gideon’s Bible in my pocket. Yessir, I’m politically incorrect and happy as a june bug.”

Facebook deleted the posting, putting in its place this warning message, Breitbart reported: “We removed something you posted. We removed this from Facebook because it violates our community standards.”

After outrage, Facebook said the deletion was a “mistake.” The company has reinstated Mr. Starnes‘ access to Facebook, Breitbart said.
